    I like the second photo best, it makes you eyes pop. You did a really great job, you look amazing.

    This is a tough one, I like both.  For me it would depend on the vibe/style of your dress and/or wedding.  #1 is a more vintage look with the liner on top and clean under the eye.

    This isn’t a poll option, but if you were going to do anything on the undereye, I would use a soft black shadow on the lower lash line and either black or flesh tone in the water line (Tarte has a nude liner called emphasEYES that brightens but isn’t has harsh as white).  I think this would give more drama but still keep it soft.

    Also love the lips!

    I had a hard time choosing, but ultimately I went with number 1 because leaving your lash line natural makes your eyes look bigger. On the day-of in the photos, I think that may translate better.

    I remember your fir DIY make up and I reaaally liked your eyes especially. I see you didnt take my advice and amp up those lips though. Do you not realize what gorgeous lips you have?!

    What kind of airbrush tool are you using? is it tough to use? I’ve been wondering about getting one myself.

    Honestly the coverage looks very light weight. I need to invest in an air brush but I’ve been afraid that it will be too difficult to use and it will end up collecting dust.

    I forgot to mention that I like pic #1 because your eyes look bigger. The one good lip comment made me laugh. i even scrolled back for a double take and they both have a nice shape and plenty of plump.

    I’m sold. I’m currently going through chemo and I found out all about how suseptible I am to infection. I even took a class that teaches patients make up tips like no double dipping with any make up product. So every time you apply anything it has to be with a new brush/applicator etc. The airbrush tool really seems the way to go.


    Thank you!!!

    @SageMustard:  I think your skin is gorgeous, you just have a couple blemishes.

    I’ve found the best way to eliminate blemishes is by spot treating them as soon as you feel/see one cropping up. Crush up a plain, white aspirin and mix it with a tiny amount of water-enough to make a thick paste. Cover the blemish with the paste and leave it for 30 minutes, then wash it away. Aspirin is high in salicylic acid and dries up pimples very quickly.

    I was wondering why go with the brands of make up specific airbrush systems? I’m thinking of investing in the DIY airbrush make up, but wondering if anyone has gone the route of buying a regular airbrush gun like this site shows


    Wouldn’t it be more cost effective to just get the makeup separately, and a better quality gun? What do the bees think?
