I like makeup A the best, but it’s something about that lip color. Maybe a less pink color? Or a darker shade? Otherwise, it’s beautiful! And hey! You look beautiful without makeup! If only I could say the same haha

I like the makeup in A as well. I like the lashes, they are very natural looking… long enough that they give you a doe-eyed look and are noticible but not like super drama lashes. What kind of look were you going for?

Skin looks great, blush and lips very pretty, I’d just amp up the eyes a little.

I am in agreeance with what most of the other bees are saying. I love the eyes but you need a bit darker/more inliner on your top lash I would also suggest fuller fake lashes or dark mascara on top of the fales. I would also put color and a light gloss on your lips (are you wearing anything here?) also a touch more bronzer and blush (again are you wearing any?). But for the eyeshadow I would not touch that at all it is just want you are looking for (first makeup picture).

Your foundation is either too pink, or your undertones are pink and your foundation isn’t neutralizing it correctly.

That would be my first fix.  Your skin should look like skin (not caked on makeup) but at the same time..you want it to be glowing, even toned etc.

You are beautiful by the way.

@Cariad:  Your dress is beautiful! I agree with PP’s, more blush, darker lashes, and gloss on the lips. 🙂

I am not by any means a make-up artist, just love make-up.

Def. pic A.  Pic B looks to “everyday”

Priority one: different lip color.  maybe look for more of a rose tone.

Priority two: more matte foundation on T zone. 

Priority three: Hmm.  I think you did a fab job on your eye make-up.  Maybe just a bit more, or darker, eyeshadow on zone 2 – the part under your eyebrow, excluding the highlight area.


I’m not sure what you mean by panda eyes.  Do you mean your lower liner smudging?  Make sure the skin isn’t oily under, try a slightly sharper/thinner line in anticipation of it blending itself, or buy waterproof liquid liner.  Some people love using an eyeliner brush, wetting it and using eyeshadow.  I like doing that in general practice, but notice some of the shadow ends up falling down by the end of day.  Not sure how that would be for wedding make-up

You can also try a eyebrown liner.  I have mixed results, but it’s something they always seem to use on makeover shows.

I think wedding make-up is more similar to theater or pagent make-up than everyday make-up.  Would look ridiculous wearing to work, but looks good in photos and doesn’t disappear from afar.

Pic 1 – my first DIY attempt

Pic 2 – I fell asleep on the couch, so this is what it looked like 7-8 hours after I put it on, though I didn’t do any dancing either.  And I fell asleep with my contacts in, so my eyes are very red.

My number 1 priority needs to be a tooth whitening kit!
