Good start but I think you need a bit more blush, in addition to the eyebrows and lipstick that you mentioned.  Luckily your pretty without needing too much makeup!

I like the way your foundation has evened out your skin tone. You have great cheekbones, I think you could highlight them a little more. I would also go a little more dramatic on your eyes. I think you’ve made a great start 🙂

For photos you’re going to want to do darker than normal makeup because it won’t show up otherwise. I would also add some false lashes (strips or individuals) it will make your eyes pop.

I am no pro but just want to throw out there that some products you may have used could possibly not look great in professional photos. I would df. recommend you taking what you used to a pro just to make sure.


Other than that I would suggest a bolder eye, either make up or lashes and a bit more on your cheeks.

I like your eyes. I’d use some bronzer and more blush. And of course lipstick.

The best thing to do is go in to a make up store like sephora and have them try out different  things on you and they can also teach you tips and tricks and then you can do it yourself. Thats what I did for my wedding. I go great tips about how to do apply my mascara I was suprised that just changing technique and applicators can make such a huge difference

I’d do a couple fake eyelashes, at least by the outside edge of your eyes, beef up your blush a bit and darken your eyeshadow to give you some extra drama.  I can’t really tell what colors you were using for eyeshadow in this pick, but I think its always beautiful when brides go with a smokey eye but using a brown color pallette (sp?) (rather than black/gray).

I agree with the false lashes. If you put mascara on them before placing individual flares on top they will look fantastic. It takes a bit of practice though. I wish I found out about them a long time ago!

And arielle is right, darker is better for photos.

Great foundation! I don’t think that you need anything more on your face at all! I think you should do a bight lip… that  would make your eyes pop and make your skin look all “fair maiden-y” haha. So basically I would keep everything the same and add a bight pinkish coral lip and some more mascara
