Wow, you look so gorgeous! I would have totally thought a professional make up artist did this for you. Great job!

you did a great job!!  you have beautiful features.

i’m not sure if it’s just the camera and the lighting but your face and neck look like different colours/shades.   do you see what i mean??  you definitely want to avoid that for your wedding pics.

i agree with the pp who mentioned the foundation colours. It doesn’t look like it is a perfect match. Other than that it is amazing. Would you mind listing the colours and brands you used for everything?

The eyes are gorgeous! Great job! The only things I would recommend would be (if you wanted to!) try some eyebrow filler? Just to define them a tiny bit for pictures. Also, for the day-of, some clear lip gloss in the middle of your lips and then lightly over the rest makes them pop and show up better in pictures. Do you know what I mean? My makeup lady did that and I thought it was awesome!

@futureMrsLarsen:  Setting spray – this was recommended to me by some bees before my wedding and I loved it and now use it when I know I’ll have a long day. It’s called Model in a Bottle.

@mypinkshoes:  I agree about the foundation color.

OP, the foundation doesn’t look to light for you like you said you were shooting for your winter color, I think it has the wrong undertones. In those pictures your face looks too “pink” to me than your neck, which isn’t a winter pale versus summer tan issue. I would check to see if you picked up foundation with warm undertones instead of cool, or vice versa. Something is def off in the undertone though.

I think everything else looks amazing though! I love your eyes, and you went with a softer lip to balance it out. LOVE!

I think it looks great! That’s cool that you learned to do that yourself just from watching tutorials. It looks like a professional did it! About how many hours did you spend practicing before you were satisfied with how it looked?

Your makeup is pretty, love the eyes but your face is a different shade from your neck.

Is this poor matching or camera flash/lighting?
