I think you look really pretty and natural, which is the look I am going for! It doesn’t look like you are wearing tons of make-up, which is why I like it. Do you want it to be more dramatic? Maybe try a darker color for your eyeshadow, or add lashes. What type of look are you trying to achieve?

I really like your make-up! I actually like the color that was used on your eyes. I think it is purple, but not 70s disco club purple, lol I totally understand about how scary it is to go out of your comfort zone, but I think you look beautiful. The make-up is natural looking and highlights your facial features.

I think that your make-up looks very pretty, its not heavy and it still shows up in pictures..Its very natural looking You could try to have her do something more dramatic and decide which one you like best ya kno? But overall I like it!

I like the purple on your eyes, but I can totally relate to what you are saying about not being used to that color.  My MUA used golds and bronze colors on my eye, and although it looked good, I just couldn’t get past it because I rarely use those colors on my eyes, so I think I’m going to use shades I’m more comfortable with.  I think if the purple is throwing you off you aren’t going to feel comfortable with it in the long run.  I think she can give you the same look by using a different color.

I also think it would look good to go bolder with your lipcolor, because your eyes aren’t over the top.

I think it looks gorgeous and natural!  I felt sort of weird in my makeup too since I’m not really a makeup girl (I want to be but I don’t know how to apply it correctly).

I thnk you looked very more natural in the first shot. the others make you look like you have cake on your face. I like your other lip color also.It’s a nice neutral.

@kittyachi – I think a brighter medium pink lipcolor would look good.  I think it gives a really fresh look…maybe something like this…sorry for the huge pic!:

they are the same? shows what a camera can do. some being too close may be or too much flash on the second ones. Other than that, It’s cool. But I still love your natural lip color plane gloss on you is great:)

I think it looks really pretty, but for some reason it seems like your forehead is a much lighter color than the rest of your face. Maybe some color up there as well? Also maybe a hair too light under the eyes. Sometimes MUAs tend to over-conceal and over-lighten the under-eye area, and it ends up bringing MORE attention to it.

 

Overall though, it looks great. Those are just minor things since you said you had your big-girl britches on. 🙂
