I think its a very nice natural look. I think a few false eyelashes might be a good idea, but of course practice a few times and test to make sure they stay on all night

Have you thought of going and having a makeup lesson or two before your wedding?

The makeup artist will be able to give you hints and tips that you would never think about.

It is a very pretty makeup look. Just remember that on your wedding day you want your make up to match the formality of your dress.

I think it looks very nice. I think the false eyelahes would really make it look great, and still natural looking.

I echo previous comments – you might want to consider adding some false eyelashes as well as some eyeliner to help highlight your eyes in photos. Also, you might want to consider using some brow gel to shape your eyebrows a bit. Very natural and pretty!

If you go with eyeline I think maybe a brown  or kohl color would be nice and not to over powering. And maybe a brow pencil or as PP said a gel. Check out the MAC or Clinic counters those are two that I love and just ask them for help for your wedding day and they will be happy to help and most likely for free. And alot of times you get free samples to use so you get the hang of it until the day of.

Are you wearing mascara? I definitely feel like you could go darker on the eyes, to make them POP more! Sephora also does make-up tutorials, to help you with techniques if you wanted more input. Looks great!

Looking good so far. I would definitely bring out the eyes more.

It’s ok to lay it on a little thick. You kind of have to for photos, and you won’t look overdone in them.

Very, very pretty! You did a great job! I Definitly think you should try fake eyelashes! The easiest ones to do are the ones that come on a strip.  Practice a couple times before your big day of coarse! But i found that the ones that look the most natural are the ones with different length lashes in them.  Like not the ones that are think and just straight across. And i also found that the easiest way to apply them is with your hands even though some of them come with a little tool.  Apply it to the inside of your eyelid and work your way out, trying to keep it as close to your eyelash line as possible without attatching it to your actual lashes! Good luck!

I really like the lipstick colour you’ve chosen, but your eyes are missing something. I second the suggestion of going and getting a few lessons. You can work out a look with a makeup artist that you can do yourself and that is what you’re looking for.

All in all, this was a good trial!

I think you’re eyes are beautiful and you should play them up more!  Maybe a darker mascara and more of a smokey eye effect? So you can see the eye shadow on more of your eyelid. Not neccesarily a dark color just a bit a darker?  As for colors, I think Cover Girl has color cordinated eye shadows.  You could try that.  It’s funny, eyes are just about the only make up technique I can do well hence no other make up advice LOL.
