So I had my makeup trial this past sunday. We had our engagement photos and I thought it would be a perfect time to do a trial. She did airbrush, which I loved. It felt like I had nothing on my face! When she first gave me the mirror, I looked at myself and thought I had way too much makeup on. My eyes were dramatic, but gorgeous! My lips were too pink, I really wanted a nude lip. And I thought my blush was a little too pink.
Here I am with no makeup
Here I am right after the trial
Here I am about ten hours later, and I toned down my lips and I liked it much better!
I know the pictures aren’t the best quality, but what do you think?

A lighter pink lip and tone down the eyebrows they are too dark. You are very pretty without make up!

Beautiful!! The eye shadow really makes your eyes pop.
Personally I think the neutral lip washes you out and the lipstick gives you a bit of colour/life. Maybe try to find another colour that you like if that one was too much?

@Ms. Martian: I agree about the lipstick. I would find something in between the two. =)
Otherwise, the make up trial looks great! =)

I think both lips are great, you look fantastic.

I really like your make up in the first photo, it looks more vibrant and gives you a healthy glow. On saying that the lighting is better in the first photo.

I think I like the natural look more (but thats just me)… Deffinately second pic for me is a winner. You have pretty features without makeup so I don’t think you need anything too OTT. I agree with the other post about your eyebrows being too dark with the makeup. Maybe a nude glossy lip 🙂

Another vote here for natural, though the darker will really stand out in photos! I don’t think either looks necessarily better than the other – just comes down to what you are more comfortable in!

@Rouquine: I was gonna suggest this too..I feel that the first pic lipstick is a bit harsh, but the second lip is not really enough…something in between would bring some more color to your face!

Don’t worry about wearing “too much” makeup… what looks like a drag queen in real life, looks lovely and fresh in photos lol.
I think the lipstick is nice… it matches your skin tone perfectly. Switch to a peachier one if you want a more neutral look… but it definitely looks more balanced with colour on the lips.

I voted for pink, because i think if you go to neutral it won’t show up well in pictures.

I think your make-up is fantastic and you look awesome! Seriously, I never say that but you have got it going on chickadee. I think a lipstick between the two would be best.

I think the make up in your 1st photo looks sound. You look classy 🙂 However…you’ve got to feel comfortable so find a happy medium.

I personally think you’ll want a subtle darker lip than your “toned-down” look…professional pictures and other lighting will need the extra makeup!

@BellaDee: …that’s good advice.
