    Your eyes seem to pop a lot more with the first makeup artist, and the overall look is a little more matte, which I like, so I chose option 1.

    #1! I love the eyes, and I’m such a sucker for a gorgeous red lipstick!

    Definitely number 1. The second one didn’t blend well on the eyes

    Option 1 and I will tell you why. I am a makeup artist with over 10 years of experience (just so you know this isn’t all hooey). Makeup artist #2 used shimmery products on areas she shouldn’t have. Your skin looks better in the first photos. The eye makeup is also a lot better, however I might use more of a creamy inner corner highlight instead of gold. The only thing I prefer in the second pictures is actually the lip color.  Just my two cents!


    Edit:  I ree looked and might actually suggest a different lip color. Something more coral/pink instead of orange. Unless you really wanted orange…I might do a lip butter called peach parfet (?) From Revlon or a color similar. Might be a touch more flattering and match the blush better 🙂

    It’s hard to tell unless you’re taking the photos in the exact same lighting… But from what I can tell, #1 is better 🙂

    I didn’t comment on your first thread. I am also professional MUA for TV and print, so my opinion is centerd more in what looks good photographically. 

    agree with PP re number one being best, but as the other MUA said, I don’t like the lipstick. It is trendy but does not bring out your natural beauty. what does your dress look like? If your dress and theme is super trendy and modern, go for it. But to me, I see a classic bone structure that would shine more with a different lip. 

    I would do the make up differently except for the eyes. I would do a soft glowy cheek that would highlight your cheekbones. Your bone structure is very patrician and classic high fashion. Just my thoughts, but if you love the trendy bold orange, you can certainly carry it off.

    #1 is better but even still, the foundation looks uneven and the concealer is not properly blended.
