You look so pretty! I am a “more is more” kind of girl, so I would add some false eyelashes. I also like the pieces of hair around your face, but they seem to hide your eyes. Maybe push tem back a bit or pull out less hair. People want to see your face ont eh big day.

I honestly cannot see the makeup well. From what I can see, I would change the lip color to something a bit rosier/pinker.

@subola:  I agree with the hair comments.  As for the make-up, I think it looks very natural.  I am in the natural camp myself.  If this is what you usually look like, maybe just a little more dolled up, I would leave it as is.  I want to look like me on my wedding day, not a super model who resembles me.  You know what I mean?

ETA: I can tell you are wearing make up but is is very subtle.  I like it.

@subola:  I think you hit the nail on the head then.  I think you could go a little darker on the lips without it making you look unnatural if you want to get wild 😉  You look gorgeous!

I would have your hair swept up and back away from your face entirely, and I would make the bump higher.

As for make-up, I really like the pale lip on you.  However, your MUA should do a much more dramatic eye (less liner, more contouring shadow) to accompany that light color on your lips. 

Also, from the photos, you appear to have cool undertones, and your MUA appears to have used a warm, peachy blush on you. I would suggest that she choose a slightly cooler shade, because I think the one she chose is not only clashing with your lip color but also your skin tone.

You have a beautiful, fresh-looking face that I think will be enhanced by the changes in make up that I noted above.

@subola:  I’ll be honest, I don’t like all the hair around the face, I think you need a bit more volume around the top and I think the makeup is really lacking for a formal event in that I don’t think it’s going to be dark enough for pictures. I think you need more of everything. I’d consider a trial with someone else. I see you’re from Upstate New York, my friend just used an AMAZING MUA in Upstate – I think it was this one: – we didn’t like her hair lady, so I wouldn’t recommend her. Sorry, I don’t mean to be brutal or anything, but I can tell you’re really pretty and I think the hair/makeup can be better to accentuate that a lot more!

not a fan of the straight pieces near your face.   i think your makeup needs to be more dramatic/intense or it isnt going to show up in photos

I also vote to have your bangs out of your face. With them there, it reminds me of Amanda Bynes back in the day on All That.
