     @dragonlover:  I definitely like this better than the pro pics you posted. I’m a makeup artist, so I can be rather nit-picky of others’ work, and the pics you posted of your other trial just didn’t have that “professional” look to me. I think you did a MUCH better job than the “pro” and this look is absolutely beautiful.

     

    ETA: I would blend/tone down the blush just a little tiny bit 🙂

    Also, Urban Decay makes a makeup setting spray called All Nighter that should keep your makeup in place. There is also one that the Disney princesses use called Final Seal.

    i voted ‘your own’ bc im doing my own too. i usually never wear makeup so i don’t want to look made up or fake on my wedding day — just plain ‘ol pretty.  i think your DIY makeup looks natural but pretty. you have great lips just play them up a little 🙂 i didnt see pics of your MUA look but they always look so over done in my opinion.  good luck! few weeks left for you exciting!!!

    @dragonlover:  If you’re concerned with the blush going too “pink”, MAC makes a great blush that is more “purple” than pink. My cheeks are pretty pink too, so the blue tones in it help balance that.

    I started going on Youtube and hunting down technique tutorials like gossmakeupartist and makeupbyeman to help me learn makeup better. I think it benefits people of all skill levels to check out tutorials.

    I definitely like your eye makeup better here than in your pro MUA run. I think your brows could use some reshaping and some defining. I would also suggest use less blush add some bronzer conturing and do a matte lipstick instead of a gloss.
