Hello! Wedding is in 2 months and I am sharing pics of my hair/makeup trial because I feel like something is “off” about the makeup but I can’t quite put my finger on it… I normally wear a full face of makeup daily. She purposely did one eye lighter and one darker to give me 2 options.
What I DO know is that I should’ve gotten my brows waxed before this. And I do not like how she did my hair so disregard lol. Any help is appreciated!

FutureMrsWebb_1227: to me there is shimmer under your eye, kinda in the corner by your nose… its probably fall out from highlighting the corner of your eye, but ur MA should be careful of that… also i think your cheeks are too orangy. i love the eyes and lips, but the cheeks clash to me. they need to be either more rosey, or more brown, not a orangy bronze color.

Undereye concealer is not very good– can still see some dark shadows. Also your brows need to be held in place with some gel or wax. Also, I don’t particularly like the eyeliner going all the way to the tear duct on the bottom. Your MUA should smoke out the bottom lash line with some eyeshadow so the liner isn’t so harsh. Your makeup just doesn’t scream “bridal” to me i.e. glowing, smokey but natural-looking, rosey pink lips and cheeks.
In general, I don’t like black/white smokey eyes– I think browns are much more flattering and would look great with your eye color. Also, I think the blush looks too orange/peach toned– I think pink would give you a much healthier glow. And the lipstick looks too dark.
I’m sorry, but of course this is all just my opinion. With all of that being said, you still managed to look beautiful!

Too much black eyeliner in my opinion. I’d go more natural!

FutureMrsWebb_1227: I think that the thick black eyeliner and the not so blended bottom lash line make it look a bit too heavy, she may have been going for a cut crease but I would have liked it more blended on myself. I agree with PP that possibly look into a better under eye concealer? It needs to be FLAWLESS if your eyes are going to be so heavy.
The base and lips look great thought, what lipstick is that?

Too much eyeliner and your eye makeup doesn’t look well blended. I really dislike how much white there is also.

I saw the makeup and then I saw your face. I feel like makeup should accentuate your natural beauty, not distract from. Your eyes would look amazing with a little less liner. The blush isn’t bad at all, but I think it would look better if it were a little pinker and less in the orange family. You will look beautiful no matter what, though! Good luck. (PS I had my makeup trial last week and didn’t like it…I guess that’s the beauty of trials!)

I agree with just about everyone.
Less eyeliner and do not ring the entire eye. Blend eyeshadow more. Conceal under eye darkness more effectively.
You are beautiful, no question. But this makeup is not doing you justice.

You are beautiful but this makeup does nothibg for you. The cheek color is very wrong for you, too much of an orange tone, and the eye makeup is too harsh and theatrical. Like a PP said, the makeup should just emphasize your natural beauty and make you glow, not make people see makeup then face.

the undereye concealer is not blended, other than that, if you are going for a darker smokey eye, i think it looks nice 🙂

i love the look! the colors, everything! i do however think it could have been applied cleaner. under the eyes, as all PPs mentioned. and the smoky part of the eyeshadow seems a bit splotchy. I think the “lighter” smoky eye looks best. otherwise i think you look FAB!
ETA- you look so much like Lana Del Rey! Gorgeous!

You are gorgeous! I like the makeup and I think some of the issues are just the cell camera you’re using. I would try taking pics with a quality camera like what would be used on your wedding day if possible. It may need to be toned down, but with a regular camera/flash, it may actually be fine. In these pics it seems dark, but I wonder if it would in pro pics.

Too much heavy eyeliner for my taste. I think a more blended smokey look would be softer and prettier.

I wear full makeup nearly everyday and am not into the fully “natural” look just so you know where I’m coming from. FutureMrsWebb_1227: I agree with some PPs that: the eyeshadow isnt blended enough on either eye, the fallout/shimmer under your eyes in the inner corners does not look best and highlights the undereye, your blush should be a tad but pinker instead of orangey/ruddy (I dislike pink and realized it’s still better on me for blush)
is there shimmer in your top eyeliner? If so, I Think you’ll look much better on your wedding day and your eyes will stand out more with no shimmer in your liner. Your top eyeliner is messy on the inner corner of your right eye and the liner is pretty spotty under your eye. Sometimes it’s black, sometimes lighter, sometimes not fully there? I do think it’s fine and looks good to line all the way to both corners, but your MUA needs to be consistent. You don’t want the very inner corner under your eye to be dark black while right next to it is very lightly lined.
The undereye is too light in some spots, too dark in others, and looks like it is cracked/creased. (The cracks/creases are probably due to the products- nars stick and creamy concealers with Ben nye banana powder on top don’t do that when applied correctly.
it also doesn’t seem like she’s applying shadow in the way thatd look best for your slightly hooded lids (I have them too). If I were you I’d google some big-eyed Celebs with hooded lids to get better ideas of the eye looks that’d be best on you. Also- if you want a made-up Dramatic look thats still natural/classic, I found some great inspiration looking at pics of Indian brides.
I’m not the biggest fan of the colors she’s using or her way of applying them because you are gorgeous- your eye should POP and you could look amazing but you look just nice with her makeup.
