Use a brown shadow for the crease and to define your upper and lower lashline. Line your upper lashline while you hold the eyeliner as close to the lashline as possible.

Flirty, romantic bridal makeup look with shades of pink and peach juxtaposed with a dark, but natural cat eye. Cover your eyelid with a purple-navy eyeshadow using a flat brush and blend well.

Brighten the eye by applying the lighter shell eyeshadow all over the eyelid. What is great about this look is that you can amplify it by contouring with the proper eyeliner shades to give depth and create a more intense look for the evening. A few coats of mascara, either black or dark brown, perfectly finish off the look.
Keep the rest of your makeup to the very minimum as this is a pretty heavy smokey eye. Next, follow the line back over the crease of the eye towards the inner corner.
