@limegreenbride:  You look great. Great job! Maybe some false lashes to “pop” the eyes and a softer pink lip.

Looks pretty. I think if you want to do your own make up for your wedding… Go for it!!!

I did and was glad I did. I had 3 make up trials and hated them all. My then Fiance said “You look so pretty everyday, why don’t you just do it yourself”. It was ON!!! I spent the next few weeks researching make up for photos (don’t use anything with SPF, it reflects the light and makes your face look white in pics), viewed tutorials on Youtube, played with colors and products. I made sure I bought make up with “return friendly” stores. To see how I would look I took pictures after each trial session. I needed make up to last for 12 hours or more on my wedding day and so I did trial runs. In the morning I would do each side of my face with different products, wrote down what I used on what side and at the end of the day looked in the mirror to evaluate what products passed the endurance test. By doing these trials it gave me confidence that I would look good all through out the wedding.

Go on, do some trials, take pics and I’m sure you’ll also be glad you DIY’d your own make up too!!!

Love the eyes! I’m not crazy about the lip color, it’s a little too much of a bubblegum pink to me. Try either a more nude or more of a light rose.

I think the eyes would look great with false lashes. I’m not sure if you filled in your brows at all, but I would probably make them darker.

It’s tough to tell for sure in this photo, but it looks like your neck and your face might be different colors.

Yes, absolutely.  So often dramatic eyes make me say “eek!” but you have somehow managed to do be both dramatic and so very wedding appropriate.  So often attempts at similar eye makeup just looks overdone and, well, bad.  You’ve probably done a better job than a professional!  And while the lip color isn’t my favorite, I do like the direction you’re going with a more neutral pink lip.
