    As a MUA, I think you did a fantastic job.  You can scratch most of your list off, you don’t need to do that stuff. Maybe try some false lashes, that’s it.  You’ve got a beautiful face. Love the colours you used! 🙂

    I like the suggestions you made, but I don’t see anything wrong with your teeth and your skin is not really badat all. The enhancements to your eyelashes and eyebrows are going to give you a lot of great definition and I think that alone willmake the biggest difference. 

    You are beautiful! Sorry about the run on words, editing on the tablet sucks.

    @aliciapdx:  I think you look beautiful! I love the lashes and I actually prefer the first lip stain. Either way I don’t think you can go wrong!

    Nothing wrong with what youve done but why dont you pop into a MAC shop and they can give you better advice and let you try out different colours and stuff and teach you how to apply it and then you just buy all of the stuff you need and do it yourself

    I like the darker lipstain and your teeth are a natural white – whitening will look fake as you already have white teeth, and the false lashes are so subtle they are a good addition. Everything else on your list is silly, you did a fantastic joba nd dont need to change a thing

    I love makeup an unusual amount. Here are my thoughts:

    Layered blush gives a really beautiful “flushed from within/blushing bride” look using a creme blush underneath the foundation powder then a very light use of powder blush on the top

    If you want your eyes to really POP, then it’s best to make them look larger by lining in white on the waterline then doing just a light drop shadow on the outer half of the lower lash line with, say, a brown shadow.

    Personally, I plan on using a matte brown palette for my shadows, and the thing I find most dramatic is a distinct “V” at the outer corner, definitely with white shadow at the inner corners


    Also, if you’re going to buy makeup, a wedding is a great excuse. If you want to do it on the cheap, check out this website

    I think you look great! I don’t think your teeth need whitening – maybe it’s the lighting but they look pretty white to me!

    I think you could go for a bit more contouring in the outside corner of your eyes, maybe a black or chocolate brown matte shadow just add a little bit more smokiness. You could do a slightly softer lip in that case, but I like the plum/wine shade you have right now.

    I would also do a more defined/stronger brow, like fill them in a little bit more.

    I don’t think you need much contouring on your face, you have great bone structure. But you could add a bit more blush and maybe a hint of bronzer/peach blush across your face just to warm up the overall look. I like to use a slightly lighter shade of foundation or concealer just in the space underneath the eyes, to brighten undereye circles and make that whole area look brighter than the rest of my face.

    With your lashes, your lashes are pretty long anyway so you could do really natural falses. Everyone says use the individual ones but they’re so fussy to handle, I like the ones that are maybe a centimeter long. Or you can just get normal ones and cut them into sections, it gives you a more natural look than one long strip.

    @aliciapdx:  I think maybe most people would recommend going pro because it’s one less thing to worry about on the day. I think it would be nice to just put yourself in the hands of professionals and not have to worry about getting your makeup right.

    But that’s on the proviso that you get a makeup artist that you totally trust, I would rather DIY than deal with a mediocre MUA on my wedding day.
