Love the eyes, love the coverage on the foundation etc…

I think the lipstick shade clashes with your hair and skin colouring though.

I agree that the lipstick is a bit on the loud, fuschia side.  I think something closer to your second inspiration photo is what you want (too pale a lip color can make you look washed out).

The eyes are great but think the bright lips take away from the eyes too much. I’d say just a shade lighter on the lips and everything would be perfect!

@Mrs.Zapien:  i think the eyes look great i don’t think that the lipstick matches the rest of your makeup.  it’s a bit too much. 

what colours are you using in your wedding?  bm dresses, flowers, decor, etc?  make sure your makeup matches those colours.

I LOVE everything but the lipstick color. I think you need a warmer pink. That one is too cool for your skintone.

I would lean more towards an orange-toned pink than that fuschia for the lipstick and try to make sure your eyeshadow is even up top. Looks great ๐Ÿ™‚

Looks good except… well, you heard it from the bees – the lipstick!

If your wedding colors are fuschia, you could probably find a less-bright plum that would work with your skin tone.  I’d bring a scrap of the fuschia to a make-up counter with me and try to get a match that looks good on your and coordinates with your color.

I agree that I really like the eye make-up, but would opt for a more natural looking lip color.

I think Emma Stone’s makeup would look gorgeous on you! She’s wearing the following:

On skin
Chanel Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup ($55)
Chanel Blush Horizon ($74)
Revlon PhotoReady Finishing Powder in Translucent ($16.95)

On eyes
Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in Black ($10.95)
Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Moonlit ($12.95)
Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara ($36)

On lips
Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Framboise ($26)
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Sari D’Eau ($39)

I like the fact that some of the makeup was affordable (Revlon.) The only changes I would make would be MAC fluidline (the gel stuff in the pot) because it really stays and brushes on so smoothly instead of the colorstay liquid eye pen, and I would also switch out the blush and foundation because Chanel is pricey! You can always try the Chanel at your local department store to see if the colours look good and then find drugstore clones ๐Ÿ™‚
