    it looks like you are off to a super awesome start! your eyes look great but have you tried adding more shaddow or maybe more of the copper colour in further and up higher, also the lighting is kind of funny, but maybe add a streek of blush higher up on your cheek

    Aww youlook gorgeous!!! What I would try is lining the lower waterline, adding a little white in the inside corner to brighten your eyes and definitely add falsies! Either get extensions or practice practice practice on your own! I love MAC’s false lashes, the thick black ones that get longer towards the outer eye and they also have glue there you can get. They’ll even show you how to apply them or there’s lots of great tutorials on YouTube! You can use them 4 or 5 times so you can figure it all out beforehand πŸ™‚ oh and once again you look fabulous!!

    Looks like you’re off to a great start. False lashes would make you’re eyes pop more. I’m fairly new to falsies myself, the ones I find easiest to apply are the accent ones, essentially half or a third of a strip of lashes. They’re meant for the outter corners of your eyes. It’s haed to tell with the lighting but I might go with a slightly lighter lip colour so the focus is more on your eyes πŸ™‚

    For my own personal taste, I would make the lip colour more of a natural pink as I think it looks more youthful and fresh (but like I said, thats only my personal preference if you like it, then keep it!). Other than that I think its gorgeous πŸ™‚

    I found this great book in my local library about bridal makeup called Makeup Makeovers: Weddings.  It discussed which time of day and the setting (outdoor/indoor/natural light/candlelight) and it was so helpful!  Tons of pictures in it which really helped me.  Your look is beautiful as is – you might want to go for more drama with a lighter lipstick and a little more eyeshadow if you are getting married in an indoor/evening settings.

    Omigosh, you have gorgeous eyes, and I’d pay good money for cheekbones like that! The color being off in your pictures makes it tough for me to make suggestions, but from what I can see, here you go:

    •  The heavier eyeliner on top is nice, and those peepers could pull off some fabulous falsies.  If you have it in your budget, I’d suggest having extensions done professionally.  I use Arden lashes frequently, but I don’t think I want to have to worry about eye glue and lash tracks on my wedding day.  Maybe buy some Arden lashes at the drugstore to play around with the style you like.
    • I’d personally lighten the lipcolor to something a touch more neutral, you really don’t need much color
    • To make shadow extend beyond the crease, I apply it below first, and dust my eye makeup brush off, then I blend it upwards.  That way there’s a soft line.

    @AmeliaBedelia:  Oh my bad lol. I didn’t even think about glasses!! And yeah definitely use a white eyeshadow, I think it looks better than white liner. MAC is seriously the best, they will do your makeup and give you a sheet with all the steps so you can repeat it!

    Hi there,

    I think you had a great first run at this! But it is hard to get a very good idea since the quality of pics aren’t that great.

    At first glance, I think you need a little more work on blending your shadow along your crease and extending that upwards as someone else mentioned. It looks a little blotchy on your right eye and I would recommend a third color so there isn’t such a stark contrast from the darkest corner to the lighest part on your eyelid (if that makes sense). I think the eyeliner under your lash line could look cleaner in general. You might also want to try some concealer under your eyes (but again that could just be the lighting of the picture). I love Bobbie Brown or Laura Mercier concealer. Your cheek bones are to die for!!

    For good blending I usually use a soft fluffy brush. A good technique is to start in smaller circular motion and keep expanding outward. Always start with less on brush and add more as you go along. There are lots of good tutorials on youtube that you may want to watch that are really helpful.

    I would definitely try some falsies. MAC ones are great, but if you want to practice lots – most drugstore brands will do. DUO eyelash glue is really good and dries clear. You want to place a little along the entire falsie lashline and then wait a minute or two before applying. You want to make sure the glue is tacky. I start by placing the lash on the inner corner of my eye and then laying it along the rest of my lashline. Make sure to apply mascara afterwards to blend your natural lashes into the flashies.

    Find your camera charger!! I want to see some clear pics πŸ™‚

    Good luck!
