Really pretty! Don’t forget a finishing spray to set it all in place. Lips are a great shade and really compliment your tone and eyes.

I think your eyes look great and defined – I think the blush needs to blended a little more and maybe placed a little higher on your cheek? I’m not a MUA, but the blush seems a little too loud to me (and I love me some blush). I like the lip color, but I think you could go a touch brighter, but what you have is good, too!

Great job! I disagree about the lips. Because your eyeshadow isn’t bold or extreme I would say you probably go for a even bolder lip if you wanted.However I like these colors and I think it looks great.

ps: only issue is the blush, put a little less on and blend more

I think it looks incredible!!! It looks like a pro did it to me! 😉 One thing though, I think the lip color is wrong. More soft, peachy pink, perhaps? And less blush, and blend it better as well. Too much differentiation.

@FutureCuomo6610:  I think it looks great, and I like the lip colour as is.  I also love the blush colour, it reminds me of coming in from a brisk autumn walk in the leaves…but maybe just a *tad* less blush, just a tad.  Otherwise perfect!

ETA: what brand/shade is that blush, anyways? I quite like it.

I think it looks great, I love the shade of blush but I’m not sure if it just needs to be blended a bit more or applied differently, I just think there’s something a bit off about it. I also don’t really love the lip color. I just don’t like the shade, not so much the darkness of it. And, you really have the prettiest shade of blue eyes! I would really say it’s almost perfect and just needs a slight adjustment – good job!

you look so so lovely! i think that if you did exactly this on your wedding day it would be perfect 🙂

i noticed right away that you have very nice cheekbones, the only advice I would give is that when you put on your blush, instead of using the make-a-smile technique, apply the blush starting at the apple of your cheek but then pull it up along your cheekbone upwards toward your ear and top it of with a just a touch of highlighter on the top part of the cheekbone to really highlight that pretty bone structure.

it looks good.  i agree with pp.  your blush needs to be blended a lot more.
