{Beauty Trends} It’s all about the eyes

Erika Snyder Lyn Ismael

Formal or fun, bold or subtle, your make up on your wedding day says a lot about your personality. We asked Erika Snyder, one of KW’s favourite make up artists, what’s hot in make up and beauty for 2017. Her answer was simple: it’s all about the eyes.

“The eyes are the window to your soul.”
– William Shakespeare

Erika says that regardless of the overall look of her make up, for brides in 2017, it’s all about the eyes. Whether she’s choosing a bold lip, smokey eye shadow or a defined cheeks, these are the two trends in eye make up that are on every brides must-have list.

1. Eyelashes for days: Eyelash extensions continue to be one of the most popular make up add-ons. Brides, maids and mothers are all choosing to show off their gorgeous eyes with thick luscious eyelashes, both the individual application and one day use. A full set off eyelashes will make your eyes pop in all of your photos.

On the wedding day, Erika offers on-site makeup application at the location you choose. Prices start at $65 for the bride, $50 for members of the bridal party and lashes from $10, to give you an idea. That said, Erika always gives her brides a custom quote that’s just for them and their specific needs. Read full review.

2. Flawless brows: Very sculpted eyebrows make for a very dramatic look and will be the finishing touch to your wedding day make up. Flawless eyebrows will also make your eye make up really stand out!
