I know your focus was you fave but I love the simplicity of your eye makeup and the falsies will definitely be nice. Now to the face, I’d say add more blush. It might look a little heavy in person, but blush always seems to get drowned out or something in photos. I can see it faintly, but that was my first thought. And then, up to you, but you could add some bronzer to warm up your face a little. Overall, it’s really pretty!

Also try an illuminating foundation or primer so that your skin glows! You have a great complexion.

YouTube and Pinterest will be your BFF if you’re DIY-ing your makeup!

Your complexion looks really good! You have really lovely eyes too but I don’t find the eye shadow color does anything for you. They don’t pop and look a bit drab.  Out of curiosity why have you opted to do your own makeup for your big day?

I saw your last post and honestly don’t find anything much different in this trial run.  You are a very pretty girl and I don’t think the application is giving you that fresh faced bridal look you are going for.  The last pic the make up looks pretty good but in the others it looks like end of day makeup.  More specifically the eyeliner/ eyeshadow under the eye looks like smudged or worn eye makeup.  If you have a sephora near by they will do free “lessons.”  I believe they have and eye lesson and a blush and bronzer lesson.  Also keep practicing and don’t be afraid to go a little more bold GL!

I think you could use some rouge, and maybe a bit more rose colored lipstick for your lips

But you look very nice and I have to say that you look like a younger sister of Princess Mary of Denmark 🙂

Your foundation looks much better than last time. No more shine! You can add a highlighter to the tops of your cheeks to give a sheen without making your skin look shiny if you want to add some definition to your skin. I do think you need to add a little more blush but you’ve already mentioned that. The lip color is also much better than the previous color! Those lashes are nice but I have a feeling they’re going to be a little too dramatic for you. I would suggest the Ardell 105, 110, or 124 if the ones you got don’t work out.

So, your makeup looks really pretty, but to me it looks like you’re going to the office, as opposed to a wedding. I totally understand if you’re not the makeup type, but just remember that often makeup looks much less vibrant in photos, so you might look totally barefaced! 

I’d suggest going a little darker on the shadow (including using darker liner), using highlighter on your brow bones, cheek bones, and along the bridge of your nose, and using a more vibrant blush. That said, I’m a makeup junkie and usually go for really bold looks, so it’s also a matter of personal preference.

Your foundation looks really good and you have amazing eyebrows. I have a couple suggestions; more blush, take your eyeshadow up just a bit higher (not necessarily in that same color, but a matte shade close to your skin tone to help blend it), some dark liner on the upper lid (this will also help camoflauge the line from the falsies), and maybe a lit bit of a light shimmery color on the inner 1/3 of your eyes. Your makeup looks very minimal and pretty but I think you’ll want to amp it up just a bit for the wedding. Photography always makes makeup seem less than what it is and I’m afraid it will look like you’re not wearing any.

I think you did a great job giving your face a flawless look as a base – in other words, kind of a blank canvass.  I think you definitely need to add bronzer to your skin – you can search on-line for tutorials if you need as to where to put it but you basically want to put it where the sun would hit your face… top of your forehead, bridge of your nose, top of your cheeks etc.  Adding the bronzer will help to give you a little bit of contouring, and will define your cheeks even more.  You also definitely need to add more blush.  If you’re ont used to wearing it it’ll look funny to you, put on enough so that you feel almost like you look like a clown (i.e. give yourself rosie cheeks).  Now is the time to try different things out… once you have it on, go take more pictures, I guarantee that enough blush to look beautiful in pictures is a lot of blush (seemingly) in the mirror.  Regardless, I think you’ve got the hardest part down – giving yourself a beautiful blank canvass to work with…  🙂

Overall I think it looks great.  That being said, I would add more blush.  Several people have suggested bronzer but I would be very cautious with bronzer as the wrong kind may look fine in person but photograph orange.
