    You look great, but I feel like it’s missing… something. Can’t put my finger on what exactly. Maybe a bit more of a lip color? Nothing dramatic, but one of those “my lips but better” type colors.

    I love what you did and think it’s perfect. It looks natural and pretty.

    I love it the way it is.  Very pretty. Maybe (?maybe) just slightly less liner on the lower lid.

    @gettingmarried2012:  Just a couple shades darker, I think. Maybe like a dusty rose-type color?

    You look amazing – great job! Natural but yet still done up in an elegant way 🙂 Although I do slightly agree with PP, perhaps less liner on the lower lid or maybe make the line a bit softer 🙂

    I think it’s gorgeous. What if you try no black liner on the lower lid, only the top and maybe some highlighter on the bottom. Not a lot, just a small amount to open your eyes. I do that with mine, and it’s amazing how open my eyes look. Otherwise, why pay the money? You’ve got the talent!

    ETA: I was wondering what tutorials you used, if any. I am thinking about DIY makeup, and would love to know your resources! Thanks!

    It looks great!  I would just agree with PPs on more lip color.  🙂

    IF I were going to change anything, I might do some individual false lashes to give a little extra specialness and MAYBE a slighter darker lip color. Those are only little very nitpicky things if you wanted to add a little extra oomph- I think you look great as is and would look beautiful in wedding pictures without changing a thing.

    If you do the bottom liner get waterproof and H2O proof mascara, you’ll cry at one point. lol

    I really like it. I agree with the suggestions of less lower liner and slightly darker lipstick. You could rim the bottom edge with eyeshadow and an angled brush or use more of a bronze coloured pencil on the bottom to get a softer look.
