- Wedding: April 2011
So I did a trial today with an airbrush make artist. I really liked her, she knows her stuff, her prices are great, but I cannot decide which eye shadow colors I should use for the wedding. Pick which you like better.
On my right eye (left when looking) is a the more natural look. She used a cream colored base and slowly blended more colors until the top of my lid/crease. The color is a mauve not a brown..it had purple undertones, although she used a light brown color in there too (using brown liner instead of black). For me I love the colors, except my Bridesmaid or Best Man are having a few purples in their eye shadow makeup (since their dresses are lavander and Maid/Matron of Honor grape), and the M.O.A. just to show me put the exact colors the BMs are wearing on, and stood next to me and my mauve looked more purple than it does alone, and it was kind of dull versus the actual purples the Bridesmaid or Best Man are using. But I do love the mauve color. (see 2 pics below)
On my left eye (right side), is a more dramatic look and is the cream colored base again, same style as the other eye, but the dark color is pewter, with black eye liner. Now this matches my dress, as its white diamond with pewter embellishments. I was told that you can allowed your Fiance to see your makeup before the wedding day so i did, and he said that the pewter was way to dark (as was the more natural color look I showed him pictures of) I explained that it had to be slighly more dramatic to be seen in pictures, but he doesn’t understand. I know he isn’t use to me in makeup like that, but do you guys think the pewter is too dark? I already told the girl I would like to soften it up and she said it would not be a problem, and would still look really pretty.. just not as dramatic. (see pic below for pewter).
Wut what do you think? (btw I am pale here but im naturally pretty dark… so for wedding I’ll have an actual tan).
Oh and the picture where u can see both eyes i would feedback on ho
w she did airbrush wise on my actual face. (the close up of the eyes shut, she hadnt really started to do any of the face airbrush makeup yet, I had NOTHING on actually besides the eye makeup she did).I have had 1 other trial and didn’t like, my friend got married and i watched her get airbrush and didn’t like it or how the girls attitude was, and would like peoples opinion of how u think it looks. She had not done lips, lashes, or a bronzed look to it yet… this was mainly for me to see the eye shadow on camera, and the foundation/flaw-less look. (see below pic. my eye are still 2 diff colors natural/pewter haha).
I really cant decide between the natural vs. the softened pewter look…my only cons are the natural looks weird with the bridal party so the pics could make them stand out more, and my Fiance wasn’t fond of pewter but think he will like it if its softened like I plan on doing…..
