I have to agree with most people. the makeup looks great, but I’d lighten up the eyes and brows. I love the dramatic lip, I say keep that and play with the rest 🙂
I think its lovely. The only thing I’d change is removing the eyeshadow right under the eyebrow.
If I take my finger and cover the eyeshadow that goes above your crease, then it looks 40’s to me. Like it is though I agree with PP, looks more 80’s
Honestly, I get Ursula vibes from this makeup. I would tone everything down. Would you mind sharing an everyday pic of you so that we see what your usual makeup style is?
In love with the lip color. The brows are a bit strong but it’s your big day! If you love it that’s all that matters!
The white she used in the corner of your eyes doesn’t blend and it’s what I noticed in every photo, especially on your inner left eye. I would tone down lips or eyes–having both creates a very strong look and IMO covers your natural beauty.
The lips are great. The contouring is… definitely not what I would wear. The eyes are way too much area covered for the 1940’s. The eyebrows seem off for the 40’s too. Clearly your MUA knows her technique, but I would go in again with some photos of Lauren Bacall, Liz Taylor, Ingrid Bergman and Rita Heyworth to try and get her to try again.
You are beautiful!
I think your MUA went too heavy on the bottom liner, especially. It should never go all the way in, that only makes your eye loops smaller.
I would either skip bottom liner all together, and just rely on mascara for lower lashes, or only line the outer half — lightly. I think that will make a huge difference (and possibly making the shadow just a touch lighter). I think of Gwen Stefani’s look when I hear Hollywood glam: red lips, winged liner, but the liner is mostly on top.
You are clearly a naturally beautiful girl. But that makeup….my first thought was that it was scary.
Here are some toned down version of the look I think you are going for. Either of these would look great, as they are less harsh on the eyes, but still dramatic on the lip.
OP I love everything about it.
I’m all for the drama and your makeup screams drama!
I’m really curious to see what your dress looks like
The makeup is definitely wearing you as opposed to you wearing makeup. Every feature of your face is screaming for attention, and not in a particularly good way. As others have mentioned, liner and dramatic lashes without all the shadow (and sharpie eyebrows) is more of a classic look, but with all the shadow it is more ’80’s style Valley Girl. Your avatar is you, right? You are a beautiful woman; you don’t need dragon-lady makeup like this!
Less eyes and brows and a lot less contouring would be perfect. You have great bone structure you dont need such heavy contouring. You could probably get away with the eyes and lips as they are without the contouring its the heavy cheeks that make it look too much. Your gorgeous though! The makeup is just over kill you have the looks to carry off less.
You are so beautiful and you don’t need all of that makeup! You will look even more amazing if your makeup is softer and more natural. I’m not saying you should do a “no makeup makeup look.” You should just pick one point of focus whether it’s your lips or eyes. When I look at the pictures you posted I’m looking at your makeup and not at you.
Thanks for all the feedback I knew it was a look that some would love and some would hate, my makeup artist did exactly what I asked her to do we started off really bold to see what worked and what didn’t and we’ll strip things back and change things up as we go, I personally think if the harsh white was taken from the inside of the eyes, the shadow was lowered so there was nothing above the crease line, I had lashes on to blend the strong liner, the foundation was less and the contour softened I think it’ll be perfect for the slightly softer but still glam and bold bridal look I’m after 🙂
