Hi bees – As i am having a Destination Wedding i will be doing my own makeup. My sis/MOH and I are booked in with Bobbi Brown for a makeup session in a few weeks and in the mean time I am doing some trials of my own. I have used the bobbi brown – nudes collection for my eyes and i will probably change the lip colour to a more coral colour. What do you think?

I think you should practice more with your eyes…maybe wing the eyeliner out a tiny bit for a slight cat-eye, and do your darker eyeshadow in the outer V, instead of just in the crease?

@ThingsThatShine: They were 2 things I was definitely going to try! My sister wants me to go darker with the eyeshadow! 🙂

It’s nice, but a bit toned down for my tastes. It’s your opinion that matters though. If that’s the vision you have, then perfect!

I agree maybe you should at least try and consider a more “glamed up” look, but if you don’t like it, then ya know! Your features are lovely, By The Way. Just remember in pictures, makeup that is too subtle may look like you’re not wearing any at all, and since it’s your wedding, people will expect you to be more “done up”, in case you’re worried about not looking “like your self”, which is one of my concerns.

@Miss TNK: Oh good! I think if you focus on the outer V and blend into the crease, you’ll get a more defined shape and you won’t lose so much of your lid color. Also, I can’t tell if you’re already doing it, but if you’re not, put a highlight color in your tear duct area….brightens things up a bit.
Also, if you have not yet discovered the wonders of Urban Decay Primer Potion, go out and buy a tube lol. It makes eyeshadow look better and last longer.

I think it needs to be a little darker, but the way you’ve applied it looks great! 🙂

Like PP have said, maybe darker on the eyes and how about falsies to make your eyes stand out. A little bit of lip gloss in the center of your lips will also make them look awesome! You have pretty nice lips! Rock them girl! 🙂

I agree with previous posters: darken your shadow in the outer V, wing out your eyeliner, and add some false lashes! (If you think a whole set of false lashes looks too dramatic or fake, you can always cut them in half and just use the outer section.)
Also, I would add some liner to the outer third of your lower lashline and smudge some of your darker shadow into it. This will give your eyes a more balanced and defined look.
Your makeup probably looks awesome in person, but you definitely need to use a heavier hand for it to show up in photography. Luckily you have an awesome base to build on, and I think you can TOTALLY pull this off on your own! Good luck! 🙂
