Oooh, pretty.  Great job!  I’d suggest a little more definition along your lower eyelid (use eyeshadow!), but other than that… beaYOOtiful. {Is lower eyelid even correct?  You know what I mean, right?}

You’re skin looks beautiful! I would just suggest maybe going a little bit darker/more dramatic on the eyes. Great job!

ditto to the darker/more dramatic on the eyes… its gonna show up even less with professional photography…

Ditto on the more dramatic eyes, I would use more eyeliner and more blush.  I love the colors you picked out!

Have you tried emailing Laura Nadeau of Weddingbee Pro?  She gives great advice for makeup for different colors, tones and skin types!  Miss Duckling emailed her before she went on her engagement shoot and she used Laura’s advice and looked fantastic.

I would go for more color on your cheeks. You need more bronzer and blush. Great start though!

Yes, I agree with others who said more dramatic eyes. The lips are gorg and your skin looks great.

Do you plan to get your brows done? They look nice naturally, but that might add some definition to your eyes as well…you can fill them in a tiny bit with brown eyebrow pencil too 🙂

Yes! More dramatic eyes. If it’s at nite you’ll want more dramatic eyes too. Your photographer will flash like crazy and it will make you look more pale.

What everyone’s saying is touching on the law of photography—what looks great in real life fades away somewhat when it’s photographed. I would go a little heavier on the eyes and cheeks because a lot of the definition is going to disappear in pics. You look beautiful, too. I love your freckles.

I like your lip colour. One of my friends wrote some make up tips around 2 years ago. It still applies, I think

Beautiful!  I would just add a little more color to your cheeks and maybe fill in your brows with a little brow color – just to define them a bit more..  Great job!

I am spending a little bit of money to have my makeup done for the day of my wedding.  With the makeup trial they did on me, I had fake eyelashes put on me to make my eyes stand out more since my eyelashes are rather sparse and small.

You can also go to a makeup counter at the department store like Macy’s and see if they can try different styles of makeup on you.  It doesn’t mean you have to buy, but it will give you some ideas on what to do.
