I’m going to be doing my own makeup for my wedding and have been practicing quite a bit. Here’s a picture from my most recent trial.
I was hoping for some opinions other than mine! I know I want a different lip color, but I’m not sure if I need more dramatic eyes/blush.

The only thing I would change is the mascara. It’s hard to tell whether it’s brown or black in the photograph… they look a bit dark at the root but then the tips just kind of blend into the eyeshadow. Go with a “Very Black” in a volumizing formula to make your eyes stand out a little more. Perhaps even add false lashes only to the outer corners to add more definition. Other than that, I like it! Especially that lip color! 🙂

i agree with mascara, and maybe EYE LINER?? so your eyes can look a bit bigger.
make sure you dont have makeup (foundation) on your eyebrows (so they can look more natural.
good luck!! :):)

Pretty! You did the thing where you put the shimmery shadow on the inside corner of your eyes, right? Totally works! I agree with the PPs, a little bit stronger around the eyes would look great on you.

I really like it! I actually like the eyes just how they are.

You look gorgeous! IF you want something a little more dramatic (like you mentioned in your post) I find a blush is a great way to achieve this. Stipple (don’t sweep) a pink blush across your cheekbones with a fluffy brush, it gives you a more natural look.
If you decide you want to do something a little more dramatic with your eyes, make sure your liner is the last thing you put on your eyes (beside your mascara), and I find lining your waterline helps eyes pop and look more dramatic.
I hope this helps but remember, in the end it’s all about what you are comfortable doing.

I’d go with false eyelashes. My cousin had some long lasting lashes put on. I believe they last about a month. SHe LOVED them b/c she automatically looked “done up” while on her Honeymoon in Jamaica. I’ll also be going that route!
*highlight the brow bone more and add a bit more blush

I agree with some of the other posters. Love the skin, lips and blush, but the eyelashes could use some help. Either different mascara or falsies. I did my own make-up for my wedding but wasn’t comfortable applying lashes, so I had a friend who was come over and apply them once I had finished my make up. Loved them!

I think colouring your eyebrows in with a bit darker colour would look great!

I actually LOVE that lip color on you! I agree with PP about a bit more blush, and I turn up the colume on the eyes a little bit, with either false eyelashes, or a bit more definition with eyeliner and shadow.

I think it looks so pretty! Very soft and romantic looking. And as others suggested, I’d go with maybe a slightly darker mascara, just to give the eyes more emphasis, but other than that, I really love it, the colors are very pretty 🙂

Thank you all for the help!!! All your advice is very helpful! I’ll have to try using more eyeliner/mascara and maybe try some false lashes! You guys have also convinced me to rethink the lip color. I think I’m just not used to wearing lipstick so anything looks strange to me! I’ll definitely keep this one in mind as a possibility though!
Thank you all again!

i think you should change the mascara, combine few different ones together, i do that and turns out really good..
definately use eye liner, eye shadow, and i think lighter lipstick..
