I would add a deep brown eyeliner on your waterline and add a bronze color in the corners of your eyelid and smudge out. I would also personally add a medium brown in your crease. I think adding a few individual lashes will also go a long way to make your eyes look more dramatic without looking like a drag queen

Allyg:  Eyemakeup looks great! I would not add eyeliner to your bottom lid/waterline as it closes in your eye and makes them look smaller. I would, however, add some falsies to make your lashes stand out a bit more.

And more blush. 

Looks great!

Allyg:  Have you tried primer? I use that on both my eyelid and underneath and it makes anything stay all day. If you are using a professional makeup artist, they should absolutely be using both facial primer + eye shadow primer to ensure your makeup will last. Another hint is to dip an eyeliner brush in a similiar shade of eyeshadow and run that along the underneath of your eye, and that will make the liner last. If you feel like lining underneath the eye makes it look small, then only apply to the outer half.  But, I really think your eyes need some definition for your photos.

OP, you’re gorgeous btw. i second the lashes suggestion and I wonder if you’d like some contouring or highlighting. 

 Krises:  +1. Eyeliner done right makes eyes look larger, not smaller.

inglot amc gel liner stays perfectly on my top lashline (I apply it w tiny slanted brush after I put on smashbox photo finish primer and mac paint pot in soft ochre).

To make liner under my eye stay right, I dab soft ochre paint pot on my lashline (not waterline), then dab on smashbox photo finish primer, then I put liquid liner (Lancôme artliner in noir) in bit corners of my eye (nothing else will stay there), then I put on marc jacobs highliner gel crayon, then I dab mac carbon shadow on top of it, to seal it, I brush a tiny bit of mac cork underneath it to blend it and soften it to be more natural, then I dab a tiny bit of Ben nye banana powder underneath all the liner, and brush off excess. That way it stays perfectly through tons of tears and sneezes even (allergy season).

I would add highlighter around orbital bone and inner eye and a bronzer. But other than that, it’s very pretty and “bridal”. I’d say your MUA did a good job with a quintessential bridal look.

Allyg:  I used to have oily skin too but have found some amazing ways to never be shiny again. After moisturizing put on some milk of magnesium (just the plain kind from the store)- it really helps prevent oil and shine, then I put benefits porefessional on my nose region where pores are too large, then smashbox photo finish primer (or monistat anti-chafing gel since it’s the same thing) all over face.

The best foundations I’ve found for oily skin are kat von d lock it (I use a very tiny bit BC it is beyond full coverage- sephora sample lasted me months) or hourglass immaculate liquid powder foundation – both of those are AMAZING for oily skin (nars sheer matte is also decent but I get way more compliments w the other 2), then put on a setting powder (I use ben nye banana powder). Judging based on your pic, I think youd love hourglass immaculate (like your pic, it gives that healthy glow from within w/o any shine). 

I used to need to blot after 2-4 hrs. With the milk of mag, smashbox, lock it and/or hourglass immaculate, then setting powder, I never have to blot and never get oily or shiny, not even after 12+ hrs. And now I can put on all kinds of shimmery highlights and blushes and never look oily.

Some MUAs know abt milk of mag and smashbox primer/monistat, but some don’t. Even if I had a pro MUA, I’d be bringing these prods w me BC they’re better than anything else. Nearly no MUA will use the 2 foundations I mentioned because of how pricey they are. You should try them out to see if you like them and, if you do, maybe have her use them for your trial. I do a light layer of lock it w hourglass immaculate on top, then Ben nye banana powder (might be too dark for you), and I contour/highlight w darker/lighter concealer, and I use hourglass ambient lighting finishing powders (amazing & great to try esp for photos) to give additional photoshop look (in dim), highlight (in luminous or for more golden highlight radiant or nars albatross) and romantic warmth (in mood). MUAs probably won’t have these in their kits either BC they’re pricey even tho they also last forever.

Allyg:  a lot of ppl swear by urban decay 24/7 liner in perversion (very dark black), but it sometimes gets in your eyes (especially if wearing contacts) to really blur your vision, so be careful w that one if you try it. It was fine for a few hours for me, but then it put these clear waxy deposits on my contacts that were so bad I had to throw the contacts away because I couldn’t see anymore or get the wax off and I had to drive home w/o contacts or glasses.

Allyg:  np at all and I hope stuff works well. Don’t be too heavy handed w Ben nye powders and take lots of trial pics in different lights- if you go way too heavy w his powders you can make yourself look paler in pics. For my undereye, I always brush excess off just in case
