I love your hair. Makeup style is great too. IMO you could play up your eyes a little more. Make them more prominent. Maybe choose a lipstick that’s a bit darker  It’s too light for my taste

elw728:  You’re very pretty! Personally I would do something a little more with the front of your hair. The back is nice but the front just looks pulled back. I assume a lot of pictures will get you head on! Also, a few pins are visible in your hair so I’d suggest trying to hide them next time with other pieces of hair. 

Agree about the foundation – it is too dark. Rather than you having to tan (unless you were planning to anyway), your MUA should buy appropriate products for your face (you’re not even extremely pale – I’m “worse” off and I can find colours to match my skin tone). 

Just my 2 cents!

Looks pretty, especially your hair.  Completely agree with PP about emphasizing your eyes more.

Oh now I see all the photos. I only saw the ones wear the color had worn off. i still think your eyes could be a tad more dramatic

Gotcha some lashes may help widen your eyes a bit

Is the hair comfortable? It looks a little low set/ too close to your neck I think it’d look better if it (the bun) were slightly higher. Also the foundation and blush look too dark.

Very pretty! I like the hair how it is (resist doing a bump-it!!!) and would add fake lashes.

Personally, I don’t like how there are the ends of your hair showing in certain places of the bun.  I would also choose one aspect of your face, such as your eyes or lips, and highlight/jazz it up a bit.  Also, I think the blush and foundation or whatever is too dark for you.  At the ends of your eyebrows (the end closer to your hairline and away from your nose) I think it might look better if they thinned out a bit more and came to more of a point, if that makes sense.

Overall, everything looks really gorgeous! The only changes would be to add lashes for a wow factor and the foundation looks a touch too dark compared to your neck.

The foundation is a bit dark, and I would suggest blending it down your neck As well as playing up your eys a bit more. But the current look is pretty good as well.

elw728:  I am going to say add a little to your eyes, other than that you look great!

I love your hair and I think the natural look is great.  I was going to comment that the foundation seemed slightly too dark, but then I reread your post.  My only thing is if he uses that foundation on the day and you haven’t tanned at all I would ask him to extend the foundation to your neck as your face and neck might seem different colours in the photos, or I would wear a reallly light tan, such as the moisterisers which add a gradual colour.  Your natural colour is beautiful though and works for you. I’m pale aswell but with really dark hair, brows and eyes so I sort of need a tan or I look like a ghost lol.
