@Payless:  I too am going for a little drama on the eyes without being smoky.

 

A couple makeup tutorials I pinned:

My favorite foundation is Mac Studio fix, but be careful not to go too heavy as it can cake. But it stays for hours even in heat and humidity!

I’d say if you’re going for falsies to make sure you have good glue. I had a trial set with cheap glue and it burned horribly (I wear contacts too, so that may have been part of it).

I think false lashes are worth it. I would get the individual ones tho. They are supposed to be easier to put on and not look as fake.

You are really pretty and I think a natural look would be just as good as a dramatic look, so whichever way you go you’ll be ok!

Are you doing your own makeup? Which ever way, do some test runs to absolutely sure. Experiment!

btw, I think you are really pretty.

Well lucky for you you’re naturally beautiful!

My suggestions: 

1) A big YES on false lashes.  Make sure they aren’t cartoonishly large.  Good ones will make you look doe-eyed and effortlessly pretty.

2) I’d go for a more natural, less dramatic look.  Your man will probably like it better and since you don’t wear a lot of make up normally, even a “natural” look when done by a make up artist will probably feel dramatic to you, since it’s such a big change.

@Payless:  No wonder you don’t wear makeup much, you are so gorgeous without it! Wow!

What does your dress look like? Since you don’t like a smoky eye, would a light, natural eyeshadow (maybe even something with a little shimmer) in a light brown/goldish color or a brownish soft gray (greige or taupe-y) with very subtle cat-eye/winged liquid liner work? Think Adele-style glamour! You can do a bit of blush/bronzer for a pretty bridal glow and then a bold lip color for the drama you’re looking for… any shade of pink, plum, red, burgandy, wine, magenta, coral…

@Payless:  I’ve had good luck with Duo glue:

Mac Studio Fix I think is suitable for most skin types; the only bad thing I’ve heard is from a friend who is a cosmetologist who said that for oily skin types it can sometimes cake.

If you have a Mac flagship or counter in a department store, you could have them try that and others on your skin to see how it finishes, and how it sits. Maybe even try it and wait a few days to be sure it doesn’t cause any reaction.
