@AllyBernard:  what do you want to know? For me, this looks very basic (natural, “no makeup” makeup). Are you looking for certain tips or suggestions? What kind of look are you going for?

I’d go with a bit of a bolder blush & just bring the dark eyeshadow a little higher up above your crease and you’re set. You’re so naturally pretty I think it would do you a disservice to put any more makeup than that on! I wanted to go bolder on my wedding day and in retrospect I’m a bit dissapointed that my eyemakeup was so dark.

@AllyBernard:  I think your problem is just physically, not enough makeup. Especially in photos, you can look washed out and without that extra color to make your face pop. Your eye makeup could definitely stand to be smokiest at the top and sides and I think some more blush would go a long way in bringing more of a glow to your face. Overall, try using more. It may look dramatic in person (think evening, going out makeup), but in photos it will be the right amount. I use three different eyeshadows. I put the lightest color starting right under my brow as a highlighter, then a medium color on my lid, and the darkest color in the crease and at the outer edges that I then blend to get that smokey effect.

I would do more in the eyes… Check out brown or taupe smoky eyes (lighter end, nothing crazy)

@AllyBernard:  I think if you filled in your eyebrows some more and experimented with some false eyelashes you would see a big difference. It will add some definition to your eyes and your eyelashes tend to disapear in photos so the long falsies will stop that.

You actually look really like Anne Hathaway! I think you look great, but might need a little bit more for pictures. (maybe google pics of Anne Hathaway to see what works for her bethere’s you really have very similar eyes and lips)

@AllyBernard:  Do you watch youTube Videos? If so, I recommend one..I had 2 different looks i wanted and i ended up going with this one on my wedding day..The eyeshadow is a bronzy brown which made the eyes stand out. Also with  a bronze/peach cheek and pinkish/nude lips.. I would also define your eyebrows a little..I’m all about the brows and I feel that it completes the whole look..I use an angle brush with eyeshadow, concealer brush and concealer to clean them up. Here is the link.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlAfmpKRm4c

@AllyBernard:  I think you look amazing! I tend to be a bigger fan of the natural look though, not sure if that’s what you’re going for.
