Just ask MAC to tone it down a little… Don’t forget that in photos makeup doesnt show up nearly as heavy as it does in real life, so you’ll need more than you usually wear. I’ve seen brides who looked like drag queens in person, turn out fresh and natural looking in photos.

Show up at the MAC counter in your every day makeup, rather than none, and tell them to give you something in between your daily look, and the bridal look they created for you.  By all means, tell them to skip the lashes if they’re too extreme for you.  You have very light eyes, and they stand out beautifully without the “pop” of falsies.  Also, the makeup will look more appropriate with your gown, jewelry, hair etc…  rather than jeans and a T.  🙂

I like your natural skin color better than the yellowish foundation in the trial pics.  Maybe you could ask them to tone it down a bit, or to mix in some foundation that has a little more pink in it.  As for eyelashes, maybe you could just do individual lashes and they’ll make your eyes sparkle, but won’t look so intense/fake?

Also, you have gorgeous eyes and your hair looks awesome!  I’d never guess that you had extensions!

I really like your boudoir look, even the lashes! But if you feel like they are too much for the actual day then I would pass on them. Or maybe get eyelash extensions just to the outer lashes (kinda pricey though), or some fakes added to just the outer lashes. Eva Longoria’s lashes  have this look and I absolutely adore it, kinda like a doe-eyed effect. I would say keep your make-up to something you dont mind looking at in the mirror the day of. I’m not a big make-up wearer on a day to day basis and to look like a drag queen in person the day of would freak me out. Plus, so many eyes will be on you that day you want to look beautiful and like yourself, only a select few will be enjoying the photos in years to come. Plus, if your FI is like mine, he looks the more natural looks and would want me to look like myself. Your wedding will have such good memories that when you look at the photo I doubt you’ll be saying “Oh, I wish I wore more blush etc”, you’ll be be remembering what a fabulous day it was!

 It may seem like a lot because it’s not something you’re used to and, well, you know, it’s your face. But really, I think it looks beautiful. Not too much from my point of view.

I think it will look fine on the day of. I actually like the lashes and everything. I think that once you are all “done up” and the make-up actually matches your attire, you won’t feel so much like a drag queen.
