I don’t wear make up on a daily basis. I wear a little bit for special occasions. The most makeup I ever wore was for my engagement photos. TBH, I feel very self concious when I wear make up. I feel uncomfortable and have an urge to wash it off. I feel like my skin doesn’t breathe well despite people telling me they’ve put on something “moisturising”.
That said, I have no idea what I want to do for my wedding make up. I want to look polished but natural. Like as natural as I am to my face, just with even tones. Do you think my boudoir make up is good? I think I would prefer to have the make up from my boudoir shoot on my wedding day (instead of the heavy engagement make up)
Tell me bees, do I look weird with make up? Or is it just me not being used to seeing my face with make up on it?

You look incredible with and with out. I wish I could say the same. I voted for make up like your engagement photos but really, anything you do will look great. You are beautiful.

You’re just not used to seeing yourself with makeup on, which is why it looks weird to you. You honestly look gorgeous with and without it. I’m not a giant fan of red lipstick on ANYONE, and would not recommend it for your wedding if you will feel unnatural with it. Your engagement photos look amazing.

You’re just not used to seeing it! Your makeup for engagement and boudoir photos looked amazing! Make wearing light makeup more often will help you get more used to it.

You are stunning without anything! I do think the boudoir make up nudges over the engagements shots which are both amazing. Like @brideatbeach, I am not a fan of red lipstick on anyone, so I would skip that.

I like the boudior make up more. The e-pic is nice too, but looks noticibly heavier and not as natural imo.

I could only hope to look as awesome as you with makeup on, and off for that matter!

If you like to look natural the boudoir make up looks like it just enhances your natural beauty.
In you definitely should wear makeup on your wedding day. Yes you look beautiful without but makeup definitely evens out a girls complexion and shows off those beautiful full lips! And this is coming from a girl who does not wear makeup on an every day basis and did not even know how to wear any until a couple years ago.

Thank you for all the input bees. I think I really am leaning towards the boudoir makeup for my wedding day.
I have a terrible eye for things, so when I see bees posting their “make up inspiration” photos, I realy have NO idea where the make up is. If I look at a celebs face, I can usually tell if there is make up, but I can’t tell what kind of make up they have on.
That said, I think that my boudoir make up has a nude lip colour, slightly darkened eye shadow and some highlight under the brow (is this right, did I miss anything)? My friend who is a make up artist did it for me.
For my enegagment ones, I think that the face seems darker as does the eye shadow and pink lip colour… is that right?
omfg, I am so sorry for how n00b I sound right now.

You are absolutely gorgeous with and without! Personally, I like nude lip colors better than red’s on everyone though, but I don’t think you look weird!
