I took DIY #2 in indoor light because I realized my whole wedding is indoors!
Any constructive criticism welcome!
Previous post has pic of nude face. taken in Natural light. I feel like the color didnt translate well and ended up looking really red and purple sorry if the new photos look the same.
And sorry they are huge again… being without a photo editing program sucks!!
This is DIY Airbrush (it covers my acne pretty well without leaving weird chunky flakiness)

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.

Thank you for all the feedback ladies!
This is really helping me figure some stuff out!
@cdncinnamongirl I am going to look inbto the Tarte Natural liner, i think that might be the perfect thing!
@AmeliaBedelia (i love your name BTW) I agree that my eyes look bigger without being completely lined but like another poster said their is something about the black that makes my eyes pop?
Maybe the black liner on the bottom is a little too out on the town/bar scene makeup?
My dress and Venue are pretty vintage feeling.

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.

@Jer72: Haha yes I heard the Lip advice! I just havent been to sephora to check out options! I know the lip color is showing up pink in these picture but I promise it doenst look pink in person its pretty much my natural lip color. I will not be wearing pink lips to my wedding! lol
Thank you for the lip compliment… I have actually always felt self conscious about the fact that I only have one good lip! LOL
I got a living social deal for the Luminess Hieriss for only $135! I think it is totally worth it cause in my area airbrush professional makeup for a wedding will cost twice or more than that! Now I can use it for any occassion, Its so easy to use… and you can really control your coverage.. I could have added a couple more layers if I really wanted a completely flawless face. But I decided i still wanted to look like myself and have a bit of freckles show through. 🙂
I just realized the kit the show comes with “glow” mine came with Primer/Moisturizer, no glow…though i hear the glow is cool…

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.

@Jer72: I swear Im not a saleman for Luminess but I will say it is so easy to use and took me less than 10 minutes to do my airbrushing… when yourr done you drop water into the place you put the make up and run it through a couple times and its clean! the other awesome thing is it doesnt feel like I have anything on my face right now…other than the falsies! As you can see I have acne and I read a lot about airbrush before buying and it seems to be the best to keep bacteria off your face. No dirty brushes or fingers!

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.

@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?
