Silly_love:  I think its beautiful. I couldn’t really tell the difference between the hair when I first looked (I had to go back through to see the difference) but I think either way, it’ll turn out gorgeous. Cudos to you for doing makeup and hair so well!

Looks like you need to brighten up under your eyes. I don’t know how to word this without sounding harsh but it looks like you created bags under your eyes. It should be an easy fix! Other than that I think it looks perfect! You have flawless skin and a beautiful face so it would be hard to mess it up 🙂 

**Your hair also looks wonderful, are you wearing any head pieces?

Silly_love:  make sure you do your eye makeup before you put on foundation and concealer. That will help if there’s any fallout from the eyeshadow. Only other thing I’ll add is to maybe fill in your brows. Nothing crazy, but the ends are a little thin compared to the rest.

Silly_love:  I think you’re good to go. I love your hair in the first 3 pics (I don’t know if it’s the ponytail or just loose hair, but those are gorgeous curls and I like how it frames your face). The only suggestions I can give you for makeup are :

– I would put eyeliner on the lower lashline. I think it would make your eyes pop, especially if you plan on wearing falsies. It would look better on pictures too.

– I would trim and fill in your eyebrows a little, just to give them more definition. 

And a hairpiece (or flowers) is a good idea. You alreay have this soft, romantic look with your hair and makeup, I think it would be lovely. 🙂

Silly_love:  beautiful! My only suggestion is to clean up the outside crease on shadow. It’s winged out a little too far.

Make up looks good (but maybe a little too dark under the eye) – make sure you use a primer under your foundation on the day. The hair is a little hard to see in the selfies. What does it look like from the back? You’ll likely have a lot of ceremony photos with the back of your head visible.

Silly_love:  Stop by a makeup counter and ask if they can try some products on you. A primer + high-definition foundation is probably going to look a lot better in professional photos than just a powder, and you might actually find one you like the feel of.
