    @weatherbug:  I personally don’t think it looks too caked on or dark. I think it will look really good for ur wedding day pictures and won’t look overdone. remember that you want your makeup heavier than normal because in pictures it will appear a lot more natural.  however; if you aren’t comfortable with the outcome definitely talk to our makeup artist So you guys can figure something out… Of course you want to make sure you love your look for your big day!

    It looks great. Heavier makeup works better with photography. Seriously, it looks beautiful — WAY better than my trial. Your FMIL should have nothing to do with this.

    @hazyleyedbeauty:  +1

    I think your make looks beautiful! So natural and definitely not caked on at all. It will look so great in pictures. I don’t think it’s your FMIL’s place (or anyone else for that matter) at all to tell you how to wear your makeup the day of. I’d explain to your fiance that you like it and it will show up great in pictures.

    @hazyleyedbeauty:  You are getting married on my B-DAY yey!

     

    @weatherbug:  Look, I SUCK at make up, but I think it looks OK! I don’t think it is too much, and I don’t wear make up lol. I don’t know if it looks different in person, but by the looks of it it’s just fine!

    BUTTTTT there is a whooole different thing it being OK and you being confortable in it. I mean, you want to look your best for FI!! Don’t you? Maybe you don’t usually wear make up and that’s why it appears like too much for him. 

    I’d talk to your make up artist about this! Be completely honest about how you feel!

    @weatherbug:  oooh and the least people you ask for opinion, the better. Really, I’ll only ask for my FI’s opinion, my mom’s and MAAAAAAYBE a friend.

    Really, you don’t want to much voices messing in your head. If you are confortable in your own skin, it will show! You’ll shine ;)!!

      I think you look amazing! 

     

    DH told me the same thing, he HATED my trial. But what I explained to him is that in the photography you need more than you think otherwise it’ll be washed out. In the end we settled on slightly less than my trial but still more than he thought I needed, and we were both happy with the final results. This is an example of mine:

    H didn’t even see my trial, but my makeup was the last thing he was worried about.

    I think it looks great!  You have to remember, it’s a like stage makeup – if you don’t go darker and more intense on the colors, you’ll look very washed out in pro pics.  Your makeup has to look right from several feet away, not just up close. We wear day to day makeup based on looking good up close, this is for a completely different setting.

    I think you look great! The makeup brings out your beauty, is diff there but not overdone. I think it’s hard when we ask friends and family since they see us in “our” normal look it’s kinda shocking to see another look. But it’s your wedding day! Also I don’t know your fmils and yours relationship but it kinda seems like shes over bearing her opinion.

    @weatherbug:  I really love what she did with your eyes – I think false lashes would be the perfect finishing touch! I don’t think it’s too dark personally.

    I would go with a pinky – nude lip color instead! 

    Perfect nude lips. MAC lipstick - Peachstone.

    @weatherbug: You look great! If you feel incomfortable you could probably get away with a little less on, but in pictures it looks really good! Keep in mind that your FMIL may have been influenced by your fiancé, and your fiancé may just not be used to seeing you with that much makeup on so it was more of a shock. Makeup can wear off as the day goes on as well.

    I don’t think it looks like too much at all. Do you normally wear little/no makeup? If so, that may be why people think it looks like too much, because they are not accustomed to seeing you like that. I really like the way she did your eyes, however, I think a different colour on your cheeks may be better.. Maybe something more pinky, perhaps. Just a thought! You look beautiful though!
