rendezvous89:  I actually think you did a really good job! I don’t know if it’s just the picture but the eyeshadow looks a bit cool toned (which there is nothing wrong with btw) but have you tried more earthy, warmer tones? Like maybe a caramel brown? I think it would compliment your eyes and skintone so much! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ» And I agree with you on the lip color – something more subtle would suit the eye look more 😊

rendezvous89:  You look flawless! Very good call to do it yourself. 

I agree with what you said about the lip colour (I think a dusky rose type of colour would be perfect) and the only other thing I would consider is blending your foundation sheerly over the top of your chest (depending on what you’re wearing). The only reason I say this is because your facial coverage is so full that it hides all of your freckles, so the ones on your chest create more of a contrast then you’d expect that I think sort of highlights that you’re wearing make-up. I think if the colouring on your chest was softened just slightly (definitely don’t hide all your gorgeous freckles!), it would look more consistent and natural (even though you look flawless).

I love your eye makeup!  I’ve never been able to get good at it haha.  And I agree that the lips are a little bright but you already addressed that πŸ™‚

Gorgeous! You did such a great job. I like the cooler eyeshadows, but it never hurts to play around and see what you like best in the end. The only thing I would change is the lip color, as you said. Right track for sure, I wish I could do my makeup myself and look that good!

I think you should go for a more medium coverage foundation. It looks really strange to have all of your freckles showing on your chest and arms but not on your face. It makes it clear that you’re wearing very heavy foundation and just looks off. Go for a light to medium coverage foundation that allows your natural skin to show through and then use a heavy, well-blended concealer to target any problems areas you want to cover. Lisa Eldridge has some great YouTube tutorials on pinpoint concealing that you might want to check out!

I think your eyes and eyebrows look great, but I would suggest a more muted lip. The bright color you’ve chosen isn’t super flattering In My Humble Opinion, and I think you’d look great with a more muted pink. But if the bright pink is what you love then you should go for that! 

I hope my suggestions were helpful. I think you look super pretty but I think these suggestions will make you look even more beautiful. Good luck!

Excellent job! I’d soften the lip as you said but that’s it!
