Damn girl you look awesome!
Personally, I would add a little more highlighter under my eyebrow and right next to my tear ducts. I think that always pictures well and adds lights to your eyes, but I know not everyone wants that.
Love your look!

Love this – especially your photo updates! I would add more blush/bronzer. It will feel like a lot in person, but it will photograph better.

It looks spot on. Just lovely!

Agreed that everything looks awesome! Just seconding the recommendation for more bronzer/blush.
As an aside, has anyone ever told you that you look like Troian Bellasario? You look so much like her in the left pic!

I slightly prefer the original eyeshadow and the new lip. But both versions are gorgeous. I would kill for your skills.

You have serious skills and look absolutely stunning! Can’t go wrong with either look.
I’m going to go a little bit against the grain here and say I slightly preferred the first lip colour, and that I don’t think you need more blush than the second trial, unless you’re happy with how it looks in person. I know photos are important and last a lifetime, but it’s also important you feel your best when you’re face to face with all your loved ones in person.
You’re so pretty that you can pull of anything though, so go with what makes you happy!

I’m going to use a higher end foundation for wedding day, so my face shouldn’t be as flat/matte on wedding day. I’ll use the Armani Luminous Silk. Tip: I’m going to get a free sample of it at Sephora when I get some other items, so no paying the full price! The sample is more than enough to do your face 2+ times.
I have a little baby contour on my cheeks and forehead. I may do a little bit more, but I need to practice that some more as it’s not something I do everyday.

I’ve heard of the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter before… I’m going to look into it, thanks!
The photos I initially posted on page 1 are with Revlon Lustrous lipstick in Bare Affair.
The updated photos on page 2 are mostly Clinique in Plum Pop.

I have a little white shadow at my brow bone and Urban Decay Naked Skin Highlighting Fluid at my inner eye (I don’t think they make this anymore, but I love it! Wah!).
I haven’t heard that but can see it in that pic a little! 🥰 Yay! Lol. I don’t think the comparison holds up in real life, but I’ll really it!
Thanks! This is a great reminder.

For people impressed with my mad skillz (lol), I’m super flattered! And just want to say it’s only practice. With YouTube nowadays makeup techniques are so easy to learn! I find doing my makeup relaxing, but I understand if others don’t have the patience for it. But it’s not harder to learn than anything else.
Also, just learned something in talking with a MUA acquaintance yesterday: camera flashes do weird things with glitter and shimmer. This is why so many bridal looks are very matte.
I tested with a flash, and the glitter on my eyelids is chunky enough that it is discernable as glitter even with a weird flash effect. But for shimmer, with the smaller particles showing up as white pin pricks on the skin with the flash, it looks quite strange.
I don’t anticipate needing a lot of flash photos on wedding day, but I’m going to adjust my highlighter. Thought I’d share in case anyone else is doing their own makeup!

I would talk to your photographer. They will use way more flash than you anticipate.
Also, a professional camera flash is significantly more powerful than a phone flash.

Love love love this makeup look! You are very talented and beautiful! For what it’s worth I didn’t see the nose ring (I actually had to scroll back to check! But even so, I think it looks lovely)
The only thing I would change would be highlighter on the nose – for me it’s too distracting and you’ve done such a classic job of the rest of your makeup to have a “trend” in there!

Yes, I’m still going to test it with a proper camera (I don’t have a light kit at the moment but still more powerful than a phone obviously).
I’m changing to a less shimmery highlighter (the only thing not matte I had on), but the glitter lid is staying. 😉
