As William Shakespeare once wrote, “The eyes are the windows to your soul.” They're the most noticeable and attractive part of your face and reflect your personal style the best. And for brides, eye makeup is one of the integral factors of their bridal makeup looks that makes them stand out. A bride's eye makeup can make or break the look. It can easily help one switch from a neutral and warm look to a more glamourous and cooler look. You can go for coloured lenses, thick eyelashes, bold eyeshadows and whatnot. The list goes on and on!

For years, brides have been experimenting and trying out new bridal eye makeup looks. There are a lot of options to choose from, but our utmost favourite is the smokey eye look with nude lipstick!

Smokey eye makeup has been in vogue, but brides only seem to be going crazier about it. Owing to how irresistibly bold and gorgeous they make one look, smokey eyes have become a go-to option for a lot of brides. Be it mehndi, cocktail, sangeet or wedding, we've seen brides vouching for smouldering smokey eyes in black, gold, matte & glitter for almost all their wedding revelries. And when paired with a nude lip, the makeup looks lit from every angle!

Scroll down and check out our favourite picks in the makeup trends that trumps all other trends!

Smokey Eyes & Nude Lips For 2022 Brides

1. Brown Toned Looks

Brown toned makeup looks are honest to god some of the best profiles for brides. The colour, when paired with a nude lip, goes superbly well with every kind of outfit. They're especially a great option for those brides that wish to avoid black on their eyes but wish to rock the smokey eye look. In fact, in 2021, we rarely saw brides sport pitch-black smokey eye looks. Instead, we were lucky enough to see many dons the smokey eye but with neutral and dark brown tones.
