    Personally, I think the colors are wrong for you. It’s all very frosty, eyes and lips, and with your tan it looks like you have a ton of makeup on. With your blue eyes, using actual earth tones (browns, bronze, copper, etc) would really make your eyes pop and would look better with your skin, IMO.

    She did a good job with the skin part though, it looks really good.

    For what its worth this is what I think:

    • The foundation DOES look “flawless” but in the pics looks a bit heavy. Airbrush should look light and like you have nothing on. I can definitely tell you have a lot of makeup on in the pics.
    • I much prefer the natural eye. I think the grey is very frosty Barbie as a Vegas Showgirl looking. This is coming from someone who wears a lot of makeup on a daily basis (I love makeup!) so its not just that I personally am not into smokey eye makeup. I just really don’t like the pewter eye at all. I think it looks very hard and very exotic dancer-ish.
    • I would go with browns on your eyes and a darker lip color because the pink she used is too frosty. I think it looks dated.

    Your skin looks great, but I’d look for different eye shadow.

    You are so pretty – and your skin looks great! 

    But I’m with the other gals on the shadow and lip color.  It’s all a little to sparkly and pale for you, in my opinion.  I would go with more earth tones – taupe, beige, and I would do the liner (liquid) and mascara in brown.  And then your lips in a light burgundy.  But that’s just me, maybe.  Or even a darker pink. 

    But I love the airbursh makeup. I’ve had it done a few times for shoots, and it always looks so good in person.  🙂

    You are extremely pretty but Im going to be honest. I actually think she used way too much white and its not highlighting how naturally pretty you are! You are stunning bride and I just think the eye make up is a little bit overplayed.  Sorry If she stopped where the eyehood is  and created a shadow then higher it would be alot better. I think you just need to maybe tone it down a tad.

    I didnt vote on your poll, it was too complicated! 🙁

    I had to vote neither. The eye shadows are too artificial looking. Your MA used too much white shadow on you since you have such tan beautiful skin. The colors are pretty by themselves by they don’t match your skin tone at all. Especially on the first and second picture there is WAY too much shade difference between your skin and your eyelid.

    Here is some pics I found that kind of illustrate what I was talking about.

     

    I think it’t the white base that is makeing everything so frosty. I think if you went for more of a beige or a sandy color, it would be good. If you could find a base color that is just 1 or 2 shades off of your skin tone, that would be perfect.

    I’m a bit confused by your poll, so I didn’t vote 🙂

    You are very pretty… my comments are a bit harsh but they have to do only with the makeup!

    The eye makeup is way too heavy… or maybe you need a more neutral or toned down color.  It’s just too frosty, 80s looking.

    I don’t like the foundation either.  You can tell you have a lot of makeup on your face, although it is “flawless”.  In this case, I don’t think the flawless is a good thing though… it looks a bit orange and too matte/flat.  I like to see more of a glow.
