@likelimeade:  …and if I don’t put enough on, I’ll just look like I usually do

And what is wrong with that? I am wearing makeup because I have rosacea and pimples so for that one day I want to look pretty.

@likelimeade:  I will personally be using lots of vivid color, but not something that will make me look clown-like. I recommend creme eyeshadow (it shows up and lasts much much longer than powder, and it looks GREAT behind frames.) If you use eyeliner, I’d go for a color other than black since it can look a little harsh. Try metallic blue, brown, or olive! And I’m planning to use a peachy colored blush to draw attention to my eyes as well. My eyelashes are super-long as is, so I won’t need false ones; but if your lashes are thinner/shorter, false lashes (when applied correctly) look beautiful!


One more suggestion; would it be possible to get glasses without a bold frame? They’re called “invisible frame glasses”, and you’ll be able to see makeup MUCH better with these than with regular framed glasses. That’s what I plan on doing (since I also can’t wear contacts!) 🙂

I’m not wearing glasses for my wedding but I usually wear them – I don’t think heavy eye makeup would look weird behind the frames, but I’d consider maybe doing simple eye makeup (like a neutral shadow, black liner and mascara) and a bold/bright lip color, if you are comfortable with that look.

When I wear my glasses, I wear the same amount of makeup as a normal day. I’m not wearing glasses for my wedding, but if I were, I’d wear just a touch more makeup than usual.

It would probably not be a bad idea to stop by a makeup counter for some tips – they are usually very helpful.  Or try having someone take your picture with varying amounts of makeup, so that you can see what it will look like in photos.
