I think it looks really nice! The only thing I would consider doing differently is maybe extending your crease shadow onto the outer corner of your eyelid and blend it into the middle of your lid. I like the colors a lot though

It is pretty.

My only suggestions would be-

* getting a more matte finish, you look like the foundation is not quite ‘set’.

* defining your brows so they look a little neater (I would kill to have thick brows like yours, please don’t take this as a jab).

* smiling. You are a freaking stunner, and I want to see how this makeup looks with you smiling 🙂

I have a few suggestions, I don’t intend this to be mean. 

I would skip putting the white eyeliner on your water line and get your eyebrows done professionally. I find the colours on the lip and cheeks to be too rosy. The finish is too glossy on the skin. The lipstick is bleeding. I don’t think the foundation is the best match as is it clinging to your pores and looking a bit heavy. The skin looks unbalanced. What are you using for skin care?   I think you should have a trial somewhere to pick some different tones and colours and get some products that will finish nicer.

@hollyberry4:  Have you had them done before? I only ask because some people have reactions/irritation from waxing (myself included – i break out) and it looks like you’re going close to your wedding day.

Looks awesome but I think you might need to darken the crease only  because people will be taking pictures from all distances and the ones that are kinda far you may not like the definition if its not bold enough. Up close its beautiful.

I would suggest cleaning up the eyebrows a bit and choosing a lighter pink lipstick.

Those sort of “dark pinks” make people look order.

Lighter pink is more modern and will make you look more youthful.


good luck on your special day!
