I think you need more blush. Also, the eye makeup is very dark and not very blended, un-like your inspiration photos which have a softer look.

You definitely need more eyeliner. Even in these pictures your eyes just don’t pop as much as they should (Way too gorgeous to be hidden!) and I also agree that your blush needs to be upped. 

I also agree that the eye makeup should have been blended way more. If that’s how she did your makeup after you showed her the inspiration pics that you posted on here, you may need to go with someone else hon. The look she gave you is beautiful, but it’s not even close to what you showed us. 🙁 

And after two trials and she still isn’t getting it how you want it? I get that’s why there’s trials, but how experienced is she?

@Peony007:  I agree completely. The eye make up seems so dark and not soft like your inspiration pictures.  Perhaps since your wedding is in the evening maybe a little darker, but def not as dark as you have it. I also think the foundation needs to be toned down a bit. I know you already mentioned it…and perhaps its just a light and angle thing, but your face color doesn’t seem to match your neck or chest color.

I told my MUA that I wanted a smokey but natural eye and I really loved how she did it.This is what she came up with.

You need to do your full lid bronze with a little in the corner of your eye and line your upper lid with liquid eyeliner if you want it like the third pic.  The first pic you would line with pencil or powder for the softer line.  Line your lower lid either on the water line or between lower lashes.  Use base, foundation, powder to set and a soft pink blush I like cream blush.  For you lips use coloured gloss so you don’t get the dryness or lipstick with clear gloss.

Edit do foundation step first.

I always do my makeup similar to your inspiration pictures!
