@MrsRevolutionize:  To be honest everyone has a “good side” of their face. One side of my face has a fatty lump from a childhood injury, and on that same side my eyebrow grows in very very sparsely. I just have learned to put my “best” face toward the toward the camera in photos.

I have one side I always angle towards the camera in photos. And I model, lol.  Not a huge deal.  Nobody notices but you.

There is a difference, but no one would ever notice it without looking at two side by side profile pictures like you posted.You look beautiful before and after makeup. Fret not. No one’s face (or anything) is completely symetrical. I went through a terrible self-conscious phase about my breasts not being exactly the same as a teen. And guess what, no one has ever complained. 🙂

I realized recently that my ears are literally crooked.
My face is pretty symettrical, so I just assumed my ears were, too.
WRONG.

Anyway it explains why my glasses have been crooked for years and years.
Noticibly crooked – I still get comments about it from friends… basically the top of one lens on the frames visually “sits” right under my eyebrow and the other “sits” on top of my eyelash line.
SERIOUSLY I couldn’t figure out why I kept buying “crooked glasses”

Now I have to bend the frames pretty roughly to get them to look normal on my face.

IN OTHER NEWS your makeup looks lovely. (and, hey fellow DIY makeup bride!)
If you are worried about your jawline, maybe you should look into contouring to help it blend in a little better?
I do it a little bit (I do the wimpy “light on the powder” version hahah). I won’t do the highlighting for our wedding, but I’ll probably be doing the shadow.
It’s a quickie, easy thing once you get the hang of it and it might be a good trick for you!

Most people have asymmetrical faces. Heck, bodies. No big deal.

I remember staring at my face in art class and realizing that its lopsided! In reality, no one has a symmetrical face. There’s always some difference! But yours is absolutely not noticeable from the front, and really not at all until you point it out!

Your makeup looks fabulous, I love it!

First off, everyone has a lopsided face. If you take a photo, cut the picture in half and then fill in the other sides with the mirror of each half, you end up with two different looking faces. http://www.psfk.com/2012/10/mirror-image-human-portraits.html#!wOzCm

I think your makeup looks good, but if you can find the money, I highly recommend getting a makeup artist. My sister’s flatmate ended up stepping in last minute to do mine and it was waaaay better than I could do myself. Plus, I failed to consider how nervous I was going to be on the morning of. I don’t think I could have coped putting my makeup on! It was just so nice to sit in the chair not doing anything for 30 mins while I got made up.

@MrsRevolutionize:  I know it’s weird how different the two sides of people’s faces are. Also, I once saw this documentary on dog behaviour…they always look at the right side of human faces because everyone expresses more with that side of their face and they can read it better. 🙂 Fasinating!
