    @linnylou_88:  you need a poll for..”needs more makeup”

    this looks very “everyday” i think lashes would really glam up your look and give you more of a vintage feel

    I agree that it looks “everyday”. Also, from what I’ve been reading is that you need to apply makeup about 20% heavier than normal for it to show up well in photographs.

    @linnylou_88:  I think your makeup looks lovely! It’s very classy and elegant. I am a bit biased though because I hardly wear any other makeup than mascara. But you know less is more sometimes!

    @linnylou_88:   I think if you apply your blush a bit darker and add false lashes, the look would be great, because the bold lips are great!  Alternatively, you could soften the lips and do false lashes and a much bolder eye shadow!  However, this seems more “you”, so I would just do the first option.  🙂

    Ok, so firstly, you are gorgeous, no two ways about it.

    Secondly, this is more like everyday makeup. I do however, quite like the bold lip.

    You need to conceal under your eyes, as even in this regular pick I am seeing darkness. This will be worse on the wedding day when you have had little sleep and a pro is taking the pics, so cover, cover, cover!

    You need lashes. All I see in the pic is a line where I assume you have used eyeliner. Lashes are your friend and will make the whole look POP!

    You also need some more highlighting and contouring with your cheeks.

    I love it! There’s nothing wrong with having an ‘everyday’ type of look on your wedding if you don’t usually do a lot of makeup. You could definitely try false lashes if you want a little more eye oomph, but it’s a good look without!

    If you’re looking for a good conceal like PP suggested, though, I love the L’Oreal True Match Crayon Conceal. I have hereditary dark circles that are nearly impossible to cover up, but it makes a big difference for me.

    Gorgeous dress choice, btw!

    Looks lovely, I agree you’re going to want to give it just a smidge more. A couple of false eyelashes will pop! And I love the pink lip!

    I don’t favor such a bright lip…

    untill I get down to the second picture that is perfect.


    If you look like YOU ! that is what is important.
