    Personally, I like the dramatic eyes.  I see nothing wrong with dark liner as long you like it because that’s what matters.

    Perhaps the dark eyeliner could look good on your upper lid, but I’d avoid it on the lower lid. I think it’s just too dark for a wedding.

    I suggest you try the look on you, then decide. I am pale, blonde, and have green eyes. I look horrible with that look, but I love it on other people. My suggestion is to wear your makeup like always; just a little darker. In my opinion, a bride should still look natural on her day. If the dramatic look isn’t a look that you wear often, then I would stay away from it.

    I’m doing black, winged eyeliner. It IS something I wear on a regular basis though, so it might be different for me. I agree with noritake. If it’s not something you do regularly, then I would stay away from it.

    I like dramatic eyes but a plethora of women (and beauty experts) have this idea that everyone should look like they aren’t wearing anything when they get married. That is not true since not everyone has the same tastes and looks good with the same styles. Go with what you love that looks flattering on you, regardless of what others insist you “should” look like.

    I think I might do it. I voted no but I really want to. Eye liner always smears on me. That is what make up trial is for, right? ;p

    I did – with winged liner and dramatic shadow and fake lashes – but as others say I do this often (it’s my going out look). So it didn’t look out of place on me!

    I say go for it- just try it out a few times to make sure you love it!

    I love this look – it is similar to what I wear (make-up wise) every day, the exception being the eyeliner on the lower lash line . . . but I definitely do that for evenings out.

    With regard to the liner on the inner part of the lower lash line (not under the lower lashes, but on the inside of her lower lid), definitely do a trial run.  I *adore* this look, but it is high maintenance, i.e., it tends to disappear (due to the moisture on the inside of the lower iid) even when the wearer isn’t tearing up.  Your make-up artist may have a fix for this, but the last thing you want to do is constantly re-apply your liner, especially in a white/ivory gown.

    I like dramatic eyes too, just remember that you will have these pictures forever.  I voted yes because if you can pull it off, I say go for it!

    Are you more pale than Hayden.  You don’t want to border on Taylor Momsen’s look.  Just practice or try it on and see if you like.

    I think it has less to do with coloring than it does with the size of your eyes and the way it is applied. I really encourage you to try it on for size, wear it for a day, and take a few pictures of it.
