Okay, so I don’t usually wear a ton of make-up. I’ve never worn foundation in my life.. but I put some on for the first time today. along with a little blush, eyeshadow, liner, mascara, and a pink tinted lip stain. This was my make-up for my bridal shower:
Crappy cell phone pic, but you get the idea.. Should I use a different color on my lips? I’m really fair skinned as I’m sure you can tell.. but I think the foundation looks good. I have really clear skin as is, so I didn’t use a ton.
Tips? advice? Getting married in a week!

I think it looks great! and btw when I first saw your pic I thought “holy cow she looks SO much like Mena Suvari!” Lucky you! I think you’re makeup is great because you have great features so I like that it’s not super dramatic.
I just took a second look and IMO if you were to do anything it would be to add more mascara and lightly fill in your brows. I think your lip color is nice.

@Leemarie: LOL I get the Mena thing a lot 😛 I actually meant to buy an eyebrow pencil at the store today but forgot, because I know I need one, Lol. I didn’t want anything too dramatic though, it’s just not me!

If I were you, I’d do your eye makeup a little heavier on the big day so it’ll look better in pictures. But it looks great! I love that lip stain! What brand/color is it?

Lip stain is great, but I agree with PP that you should go a bit heavier in the eyes. 🙂

You have amazing skin! Lucky!!!
I second the PP, darken those lashes and fill in those eye brows. They are supposed to frame your eyes!
I’m not sure if it’s just the camera angle or if you are like myself and have a longer forehead. If you are like me it’s important to define those brows to separate your face from your forehead. It really makes a diffence for me!

Lip stain looks awesome. I agree to fill in your brows a bit, but try a powder rather than a pencil. Wet n’ Wild makes a great eyebrow kit, believe it or not!
Also, did you line your water line only? I’d avoid that and line your upper lid instead.

The foundation and lips look great, very natural but still definitely threre and quite pretty. I agree with PPs that you need ore for your eyes to pop – more color/shading, and the right liner and mascara can make a big difference too! You can always stop at a store like Sephora or a makeup counter and have them try a look on you, then purchase that eye makeup if you like it.
keep it mind it always looks way lighter in pictures! (and there will be LOTS of pictures)

You’re SO pretty! You have such a nice smile. I agree with PP, an eyebrow pencil would look really nice. Just a warning, though – you might want to try it out for a few days so you get used to it. I know the first time I used an eyebrow pencil I was like “WTF”, but then as I got used to it, I started liking it.
Also, I think more eyeliner/mascara would really make your eyes pop – maybe a few individual clusters of false lashes in the outer corners?
ETA: I also love the lip stain – it’s really pretty

I love the makeup, but even though you don’t like the dramatic I feel like you need a little more… a little… OOMPH. This is your wedding day and time to shine. I’m definitely not keen on my makeup senses, but you should go talk to anyone in either Sephora, Macy*s makeup counter, etc… tell them your dilemna and ask them to show you how to do your make up, but that you want it natural and soft. They’ll be able to show you how to do something and make it pop just the right way! 😀

@mepayne: Lip stain is called blush on by Maybelline I believe.. it’s a 12 hour color stain
@SageMustard: My forehead is definitely long, lol. I’ll have to find something for my brows
@RedAngelDreamer: I’ll check the brow kit out! I didn’t actually line my lips at all

You’re so beautiful! I would recommend an eyebrow pencil because you’re blonde.

Put on a little eyeliner and call it a day!

I think you’re stunning and your makeup looks great for a bridal shower. However, I think for the wedding day you may want to amp it up a little. Being that you rarely wear I would suggest getting your makeup done by a professional. You can tell them you want a very natural look so you don’t feel too caked on. But I think it would just make you shine more, especially in pictures.

Just something more for the eyes like everone said. Possibl nude/ lightly shimmer eyeshadow with black eyeliner. Dont over do it, but eyeliner and a soft brown to fill in the eyebrows would help make it look more done up. dont get too dark of a color for eyebrows. That could go wrong fast! Try it out ahead of time.
