Enchanting, ethereal and evocative, we are in love with the angelic and serene makeup trend that is bright white eyes!
From a sweep of white liner to flashes of bright white applied to the inner corners the eyes for an enhancing effect, this trend is the epitome of fresh and youthful and translates beautifully for an ethereal bride!
We asked one of our favourite makeup artists, Sydney based, Liv Lundelius who is an expert at making fashion trends work for the aisle, while understanding the importance of natural makeup, for her expert advice on this trend….
Perfectly suited for the bride seeking a soft and romantic look, angelic eyes are also making the perfect match for minimalistic, chic and modern bridal styles. I truly love this look, as it brings attention to the eyes without the need of dark colours or harsh lines. It is understated, yet opens up the eye and enhances the eyes natural brightness.
The beauty of this makeup trend lies in the versatility and suitability to all eye shapes. Smaller eyes really benefit from the enhancement when the focus is on highlighting the inner corners of the eyes or applying a brightening liner to the water line.
While being soft and subtle, angelic eyes really
work wonders in photographs.To complete the
I recommend a wash of shadow on the lids in a colour that compliments your iris to make them pop.
Use very soft blending to enhance your eye shape and to keep the eyes light working with the natural contour and shadows.
A full lash line compliments the eye and the softness of this style perfectly, using several coats of a volumizing and lengthening mascara, carefully brushed out to achieve a natural looking fullness and separation. For your wedding day I recommend using a water resistant formula.
The eyes will best be finished of with a very soft and natural brow, only filled in with a light powder, were necessary. A good helper to hold them in place is stroke of clear brow-gel.
The lips can be left pale or soft pink for the true angelic look or add a deep berry lip can be added for more drama and contrast.

The key to a flawless finish is to work with a freshly sharpened soft and good quality pencil.
Start by highlighting the inner corners, along the inner rim of the eyes.
Gently blend the highlight towards the centre of the lid.
A bolder approach is to line the whole upper lid with the white pencil, which gives a more graphic and modern look.
For a professional finish use the pencil for a fine short line underneath the highest point of your brow and blend it with your eyeshadow brush. Voila!
