As you stated, I would go just slightly lighter with the blush. In pictures it won’t be as bright as it is in real life but still maybe just a bit lighter. Your falsies look fine. Again, they won’t look so “bam! in your face” in the pictures so I’ll think you’ll be ok. Everything else looks great!!

It looks great! As a former makeup artist for Stila, I recommend keeping the blush the way it is as you want it to show up in the photos (it won’t be as bright in pictures as it looks in natural light). Also, make sure to wear foundation without any SPF in it, if possible. The titanium dioxide in the SPF scatters light rays, which essentially is reflecting light from your skin, so when you’re taking pictures with a flash, your face may look a little “whiter” than the rest of your skin.

@SnowBride2013:  it looks perfect as is. I wouldn’t change the blush at all. (Don’t do it! Lol) your eyebrows are gorgeous btw.

If you’re not used to wearing false eyelashes, I either wouldn’t wear them or I’d find someone who can apply them well. The one on your left eye turned out a lot better than the one on your right, but they almost look like they’re not big enough for your eyes.

My photographer said you really couldn’t put on too much makeup, it just disappears on film.  It was hard to put on that much makeup because I thought I looked silly but when we got back our photos it looked totally normal!  Good luck you look beautiful!

you’re so pretty! i think everything but the lashes is great.

the lashes seem… i dunno. overkill. i agree with UberClaire that if you’re not used to lashes, don’t wear them. they’re super hard to put on, even for me, and i wear them all the time. if you’re absolutely set on having falsies, try ardell’s demi wispies, or even half lashes. full strip lashes can be way overkill for most people.

You look fantastic!

The only suggestions I would make are to be a little more careful with your false eyelashes. Try a pair with wispier, criss-crossy hairs so that they’ll look more natural. (Ardell 110s would be great for this.) Make sure you apply as close to the lashline as possible, line them up well, and cover the lash band with liquid eyeliner once you’ve applied. Emilynoel83 just posted a great false lash tutorial on YouTube the other day.

You might also find that tightlining your upper lashline keeps from having little bits of flesh peeking out between your natural lashes.

Other than the lashes, you look amazing! You can totally do this. Your skin looks phenomenal, and I think the blush is actually going to turn out well in photos. Good luck!

I think it will be great for engagement photos! My only suggestion would be to lightly contour your nose. Since you’re so fair skinned sometimes with flash photoraphy noses can get flattened out and I find that when I (also a fair-skinned lady) contour my nose it helps a lot!

Here’s a good before and after picture to show the difference. It’s slight, but makes an impact!

A couple suggestions:

You should get the crease eyeshadow more in the crease, like higher up.

Your blush is a bit low. You want it on the apples kind of applied in a top-down manner, since you want your face to look elevated, overall. If that makes sense. Who doesn’t want things high and tight? ๐Ÿ˜‰
