Hi Hi Ladies,
I had my makeup trial on Saturday and I wanted to get some honest opinions on how the makeup turned out. I brought in lots of sample pics of looks I liked and was really hoping for a vintage look, with dramatic eyes (to accent eyes) and just an overall pretty, flawless look. I definitely don’t think it turned out horrible but I thought it would have turned out better, I don’t think it’s anything special. She did airbrush foudation (which I wanted, though have choice to use regular) I have some skin flaws and discolorations around my mouth and chin and some serious dark circles under my eyes. I do think she did a great job concealing these issues. What do you think? Sorry for the large photos.

I like it a lot! I love your closed eye smile in the last pic.

You look beautiful but seeing as how you asked for “dramatic eyes”, I would express that to your person. 🙂 Good luck!

very pretty, very “bridal.” Eyeliner looks a little uneven on your left eye,though. I think it’ll look great in photos.

I really like it! But the focus is definitely on the lips here, not the eyes.

I think it looks great. Your skin looks flawless but not like you’re wearing a lot of makeup. Your eyes don’t look very dramatic though, so maybe she could play those up a little more.

Love the colors! The one thing I would say is the eyeshadow looks like it needs to be blended a little better. Other than that, it looks great!

Very pretty but I’d do a little extra blush!

I would add a sweep of blush and then you are good to go. What a beauty of a bride you will make!

I think the makeup is beautiful but not really what you asked for. I wouldn’t call your eyes dramatic and I don’t get a very vintage feel from the makeup either. My suggestions would to ask for the eye makeup to be darkened, add a winged eyeliner and amp up your cheeks by adding more blush and a highlight to your cheekbones.

@PuntaCanaBride: I agree.
To me it is lovely but not vintage or dramatic.
This is what I think of when I put those words together:

I think it’s a lovely, natural look.

You’re so pretty 🙂 I think you should darken the eye shadow a bit more? And maybe the lips too just a shade darker. I think maybe that will make it look a more dramatic

Thank you for all of the helpful tips and comments! You guys are awesome! I definitely agree that the eyes need a little more “umph” and I feel the same about the cheekbones, need more highlighting. Again, thanks so much, really appreciate the help!
