hey bees! I went for my very first makeup trial today. I love my makeup artist who was extremely patient and flexible. In the end, I love how my skin, cheeks and lips look but something is missing in the eyes. I just can’t pinpoint it. I want to look radiant, romantic, and soft. I tried color on the eyes and thought it was too glamourous for the pretty, romantic feel I was going for. Still, I feel like my eyes don’t pop. What say you?

You look gorgeous! I think she probably could have been a little heavier-handed on the color eyeshadow she used and it would make your eyes stand out more, but I like the color!

I think with the eyes she could have went darker/smokier and winged it out. Also, are you doing false lashes? I absolutely love the lip color btw!

I agree I think she could have find ways to make your eyes pop without doing a dramatic or smoky eye if you wanted something more romantic. I just don’t think the eyes look special enough. Your lips and blush look awesome!

@NJmeetsBX: Your skin looks flawless, what a great trial! I think maybe more mascara? Or a little more eyeliner…something to create more of a pop with your eyes.

I agree with TwoCityBride & mrscheetos, smokier and more eyeshadow: the look she gave you is very fresh and innocent, but doesn’t have too much drama.

I think a few false eyelashes would give you that pop you’re looking for, I love this simple clean makeup!! Same look I’m going for on my day!

Thanks, bees. She tried to smoke the eye out more but I didn’t like it. I don’t want to look glamorous or over the top. The ceremony is outdoors during the day and the feel of it is romantic…lots of babys breath, I have a lace dress, my bouquet is white and fluffy, etc. Maybe we can use different colors on the eyes? Golds/bronzes perhaps? This was more neutrals like sand and brown.
I do have on false lashes, but my natural lashes are really long so it didn’t seem to different to me.

Gorgeous! I agree though with PP’s that some false eyelashes could give it a little extra drama.

I love how natural it looks! If you want more pop on your eyes, I think she needs to put on just a bit more eyeshadow and maybe even use fake lashes. Maybe that would help you achieve the look you’re looking for?

I love the coral on the cheeks and the lips you look incredibly radiant and that is the perfect tone for your skin – the eye shadow color she used too me does not go as well with your skin and would love to see some copper and peach instead of the taupe and champagne (kind of a purple undertone to me)
You are gorgeous!!!

Also, Maybe more of a liquid/cream liner on the top. Smudge it into the lash line and it can still be soft but with more definition along the lashes making them look thicker and darker.
I must say though, your make up really does look beautiful and you are one pretty lady! 🙂

I think you look amazing. You’re naturally very pretty- stick with this look!

I’d smoke up the eye with a deep plum or eggplant color.
