Question: Are you doing your makeup or are you having it done.

Bridal makeup is all about a radiant, glowing look, not crazy dramatic makeup. Since you’re a girl that loves a strong eye look, I would do that in a very polished and classic way. I would suggest wearing lashes because even long lashes (I have them, too- yay!) can disappear in pictures.

Here’s a few videos I found on youtube to help you out. (:

I too am a natural redhead with pale skin, freckles, and long eyelashes! I would definitely advise having it done professionally, especially if you aren’t into doing makeup yourself. I know that in my day to day makeup I use lots of coraly, golds, and browns to really make my eyes pop. I am definitely doing fake lashes the day of just to add the dramatic look. If you aren’t sure and want to get ideas how to play around with makeup before your big day, I would suggest heading into your local department store to have them do it, ususally for free. I know estee lauder will do it for free. Best of luck!

Your beautiful, and your eyes are so pretty. Golds/browns would make your eye colour pop like crazy, your mom is right!

You know how there are those girls who actually look better with less makeup because they are naturally pretty? You are one of those girls! Go light on the eyeliner. Try putting eyelner on your bottom water line instead of below lashes or try a gold eyeliner. Highlight inner corners of eyes and brow bone with white shimmer shadow. Peach tones would look great on your fair skin.

Having read many a makeup boards, perhaps you can try brown mascara and see how it looks on you? It’s usually advised for those with light skintones/hair.

That being said, you’re gorgeous. I’d go with what the other girls say and go for lots of golds, and experiment with highlighting/contouring on your face.

@raisedonrobbery:  I agree, definitely lighter on the eyeliner and gold would be so pretty! I know that I have used a bronzey/goldish color before instead of black and the way it shimmers is stunning! It would be so beautiful on the wedding day. I also have to use a liner on my brows because they are so light and it really helps a ton!
