    I think for me, there is too much eyeliner, especially at the bottom lashline. The colors are okay, doing neutrals will depend on your skintone. I think it needs more color somewhere because it’s a neutral eye with nude lip. I like the nude lip more than the eyeshadow colors used. That’s just me. I’m obsessed with eye makeup and trying new looks! Try it out and see how it goes! Just more subdued, I think.

    It’s quite a dramatic look. TBH, it reads more “in the club” than “getting married” to me, but that’s a personal style thing. Is the rest of your bridal look quite dramatic?

    Her eyebrows are throwing me off! She’s got the “this is my excited look” thing going on. The close up of the eye is very pretty.

    I can’t say that its my style, but I think its because I couldn’t pull it off. I feel that the eyes are pretty dark and with no color on the lips or cheeks or anything it can easily get to the ‘washed out’ look. Maybe add some gloss that isn’t in the brown family, perhaps a pinkish red color.

    I wanted a natural smokey eye look (I know they seem opposite) but thats what I told my makeup artist. I normally don’t wear anything on my lips and told her that I didn’t want to have any lipstick but she told me to try this rose colored gloss and I really loved how it gave me a little more color without looking too unnatural.

    I”ll never get the “let’s make my lips the same color as my face look.” I totally understand a soft, nude lip, but that will not translate well in your wedding photos.

    I thought I wanted a dramatic eye for my wedding but after my makeup trial, I decided to go with a more natural look. I’m so glad I did. I’m a crier. If you are, I’d advise against any severe, dark eye makeup, even if it’s waterproof. BUT, if this is how you normally do your makeup, by all means, go for it.

    Would not make a good wedding day look b/c …. too much liner.  Looks as if you’re headed out to a club, vs a wedding.

    I’d tone it down. It kind of reminds me of a stripper,TBH (though as PP said, it would be great look for the club). But I think if the eyeliner was softened (both softened in intensity, and more blended) and paired with a more natural, pinkish lip, it could look really pretty.

    Basically take what this chick is doing in the tutorials, do it half as hard, and I think it would be great.

    @EffieTrinket:  Agreed, stripper (or even hooker – I’m sorry! I am trying to prevent you from looking bad on your wedding so I will be honest) comes to mind.

    Tone it down a little bit. You can still do a smokey eye, just be a bit more natural. I think it’s hard for girls w. blond hair (or really pale people like me) to pull off the dark eyes look because it can be a bit too much.

    ETA: That is if your coloring is similar to the girl in the photos. If you’re darker skinned w. dark hair I think you can go a bit more dramatic.

    Too much in my opinion.  It needs to be toned down, I agree with PP.  Eyeliner is too harsh.

    I think it could work as a bridal look. If you generally wear more dramatic makeup anyways it will look normal on you. YOu could lighten up the eyeliner, especially the bottom to make it a little less dark. But I say give it a try and see how it turns out. Might look completely different on you. I do agree with some PP though that I would add some more colour to the lips and cheeks.

    I agree w/the last post, what do you typically wear? another thought is the theme/style of the wedding? if folks are used to seeing you a little more glammed up than the average bee,  then it might be perfect, and folks might think you dont look ‘made up ‘ if you show up w/o your liner and shadow, but everyone is different with liner and shadows, etc. I would stroll through some of the recap photos, there are tons of brides out there that have lots of style-with and without make up, maybe that’ll sort of give you a feel for what you’re looking for…?   beautiful job though!

    The eyes might be a teeny over done. I would definitely recommend having some lip color to have the contrast of your mouth show up in photos.
