I think it looks nice! I would maybe bring the shadow up a little higher on your lid and use a highligher/enhancer on your brow bone. I love your freckles though. They’re so pretty!

@Payless:  Try Lorac concealer it’s awesome and comes with a concealer stick on one side and highlighter on the other side. Use the concealer for under eye and ny breakouts and highlighter on inner corner of your eyes, brow bone, and bridge of your nose. They sell it at Ulta for 26 bucks I think but it lasts a longgg time 🙂

um.. I have this little one from Sephora that I got as a free point thing about a year ago and love it. It’s Benefit (brand) “Soft Focus Highlighter for Face.” I can’t believe how long it’s lasted.

@Payless:  you look radiant! go buy Dermablend cover creme for your blemishes (at Ulta) and a really good setting powder to pat on top of what you concealed. MAC loose powder is a good one, or Make up Forever.

As far as covering acne, I don’t know if I can suggest the best thing to use, because I’ve just been getting into makeup over the last year or two. But I use this NYX HD Concealer, and Make Up Forever Foundation. Works good for me!

Also, to prevent acne on your wedding day. Stay away from carbs and sugar (eat lots of leafy greens!!!). And drink water with a slice of lemon everyday. And then 2-3 times a week or as needed, do a honey aspirin scrub, it makes your skin so soft!!! Your skin will be glowing! If my skin ever breaksout and I do that regmin, it gets clear pretty quickly.

@Payless:  Start with a green primer/concealer to neutralize the redness from the blemishes. Use a cream, full coverage foundation like Make Up For Ever or my personal favorite, Tarte’s amazone clay foundation. Use a flat-top brush to apply the foundation in CIRCULAR (very important) motions all over your face. Make sure to let the foundation sit for about four minutes before doing anything else. 

If you still need concealer on any blemishes, pat the concealer (I love Laura Mercier concealer, NYX also makes a greatHD concealer for about $5.) on the blemishes using a finger, then take a concealer brush, and very lightly blend it in a windshield wiper motion. You don’t want to “rub it in” you just want to blend out the edges of the concealer, so don’t use much pressure at all. 

Set with a translucent powder, Elf makes a great option for only a couple bucks. Just make sure not to buy the stark white powder which is meant for video, but doesn’t photograph well, as it tends to reflect back to the camera.

Hope that helps!
