Today, in the last of our current Hair and Make-Up Master Class Tutorials with Kate from Quince and Mulberry Studios, we look at creating perfect dark smoky eyes. Whilst they are not traditionally bridal, smoky eyes are still definitely one of the most requested looks, says leading makeup artist, Alannah Pritchard.

“Finding the right depth and balance for a bridal look is important. Smoky eyes can be tailored to look more subtle and soft through colour, the amount of shadow used and the degree of blending. This look is perfect for the bride who loves a bit more definition and drama as it adds focus to the eyes, but still creates a perfect balance of depth and contrast. Perfect smoky eyes are paired with an even complexion with little contouring or blush and are finished off with a pale, soft lip colour; too much colour or definition on the face has the potential to make the look too dramatic for a daytime or afternoon ceremony.”

1.Freshly cleanse and tone skin and apply makeup primer.
