I went to the Estee Lauder counter the other week to get a makeup trial done for the wedding. I know it’s early but I want to get an idea and get it crossed off my list. My skin won’t change at all in the summer time (if any) so I’m not too worried about that, but I will be dying my hair back to brown for the wedding. This is the trial she did tonight. All I gave her was the idea of smoky eyes and picked a color I really liked. I realize a lot of you will think it’s too dark but I love love funky eye makeup and while the wedding will be in the later afternoon (like 3:45) I think if the reception is later on in the evening it should be ok!! I will be going back next week to try a different look and then I will decide what I like better for the big day!
Please, tell me what you think.

I love the shimmer and the idea, but I think it would look a bit better if the shadow didn’t extend out quite so much to the sides. I also might go with a warmer colour, like a deep bronze, to complement your beautiful peachy skin tone.

Haha, you’re right about thinking its too dark. I think it’s too dark, or too thick on the outter half. It kinda just draws my eyes to the corner of your eyes and just distracts me from any other feature.

Your skin looks beautiful! And I think your blush and lipstick colors are perfect for you. I also think the eye shadow could be toned-down a tiny bit; even though it looks very good as it is, I think the combo of the smokey eye and your cool short haircut gives an “edgy” look, which might be what you’re going for though.

@missrobots: Thank you, that is what the consultant kept saying too 🙂 All I’m wearing is a little foundation and a brushing of concealer.

It’s a little too dark for my taste, but I am taking into account that you said you are dying your hair back to brown, I think that will change my opinion. I would also try a different lip color? I realize with a smokey eye you need a soft color, but I think you can find an even better one : ) (a little more sparkly!!!)
ETA: I think the warm brown hair will go very well with the smokey brown color on the inner eye shadow : ) & I love your red hair – I wish it looked good on me, I’d love to have red hair!

I really love it! There’s something sort of 1920s-retro with the dark eyes.
Also, can I just say you have the most beautiful skin ever? It’s flawless!
