Well, if it is a summer wedding, you need not necessarily understate your makeup to match the entire vibe of the season. Given that summer is also about colours and vibrancy, you can experiment with rich colours and metallic hues. Go for shiny tones as the glitter makeup climbs up the ladder of the trend game. In the picture, Daniel Bauer reminisces his favourite bridal photoshoot with these metallic accents. Smokey eyes team well with this kind of look. Plus, greys and violets look gorgeous when your attire is shimmery or darker in shades.
