I asked for very natural makeup, since I hardly wear any in real life. I was very pleased with how it turned out.

I don’t have mine back yet, but I’ll say this:  if you think it looks like “too much” go with your gut and tone it down.  I had mine done and she was like “oh this is what we do for most of our brides, it looks really good in pictures” and I don’t look like myself.  Later in the day when I had wiped off most of the eyeliner I looked a lot better.

Sorry, I don’t have any pro shots that are up close enough to really show my makeup. This is a guest pic (edit: found a closer up pic, that’s more helpful lol)

I was so happy with mine!  I did fake individual lashes with a fairly neutral eye and bright lips.

@laceandpearls10:  I wear very neutral colors on a daily basis but for the day of I convinced myself to have a more smokey and dramatic appearance and I’m glad I did. It may take you out of your comfort zone a bit but it can make for better pictures overall as you have to compete with the hair/flowers/dress etc.

To me it is way more dramatic without the hair/dress in the first photo and seems less with everything put together.

Here are some examples:

Love this thread!  I am searching for an MUA now, so the more inspiration, the better.  You ladies all look lovely 🙂

Well of course the uploader won’t work for me.. *le sigh*

I’m going to go on my phone and see if I have any already uploaded photos that show it off. Somehow the uploader works on my phone but not on my computer, but I can’t upload any new photos on my phone. 

Don’t have any good makeup photos already uploaded. I’ll be back once this glitch gets sorted out.
