it’s a great look- maybe if you just changed the color eyeshadow used! maybe a brown/beige mix? that way it’s not exactly your everyday makeup, but you will look like you! the eyeliner is perfect! and if you do a more neutral color shadow, you can do a red lip.. i would do a little darker than cherry red- very vintage-ie! but i wouldn’t do a red lip with the blue eye shadow (might look a little too patriotic πŸ˜‰ Your dress is gorgeous by the way! very flattering on you!

I agree with NJForever, I would do a softer eye with a red lip. Keep the liner, but tone down the shadow. You have gorgeous eyes, btw. You’re going to look so pretty! Your dress is just lovely.

Check out some photos of Audrey Hepburn (a la Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Funny Face).  It looks like you have similar bone structure and skin tone.  I’m jealous Kiss.

@agirlwithdreams7: Sorry, the pic. made it look like blue eyeshadow! I totally get not doing a red lip- I am NOT one of those girls that can rock that πŸ™ What about a more dramatic eye and a nude lip? Nude is SO in right now. If you want to experiment with it, I just bought an AWESOME lip gloss from Walgreens, the brand is “Yes to Carrots” it’s 95% organic and the color is “playful nude”. It might be fun just to play around with it? And if nothing else- you get a great new lipgloss out of it πŸ™‚ I found it on the face wash aisle next to the Burt’s Bees products. The product looks like this: http://www.yestocarrots.com/product/lip-glosses?product_id=LIPGLOSSES but I don’t think it was almost $7 at Walgreens, I thought I got mine for more around $4. Good luck!

I would do a softer color eyeshadow…like tans and ivories, with a thick layer of eyeliner on the top lid only.  Then a dramatic red lip!!

Here are some pictures from a post I started a while back…

Vintage Hair Ideas

By the way, your dress is stunning and it looks great on you! πŸ™‚

I love the finger wave idea.  Very 30’s/40’s like your dress.  I am also doing make up like yours with victory curls and a big fascinator.

I think that soft browns and pinks would look fabulous as eyeshadow, with brown eyeliner and mascara, and maybe a bold red lipstick?

Your dress is gorgeous FYI!

with that gown a soft makeup look would do wonders for you.. it would bring out the dresses beauty. and show a more delicate side.. I dont agree with such a big wing i think less is more .. a nice eyeliner would be key
