    second lipstick for sure. it goes so well with your skin tone πŸ™‚ for the eyes, I would add a bit of eyeliner (not very heavy since you want natural make up) and try blending eyeshadow better πŸ™‚ and fake eyelashes – great idea – they would make your eyes really pop πŸ™‚ good luck! πŸ™‚

    and one more thing – looks like you contoured your face in the cheek area (im assuming it because it looks more like contour color not blush) maybe next time when u are doing your makeup try contouring your face a bit like this http://1.bp.blogspot.com/–4lMdgXkPh8/T_RsI_pHFSI/AAAAAAAAAVs/aVNSCVeJvGo/s1600/kevynaucoin.jpg

     

    it could really make a difference – im also very pale and i do this using brown contour powder (not too dark) and contours my face beautifully. πŸ™‚ dont overdo this but at least try πŸ™‚

    I would probably go with a more pink with the blush.  The blush looks like it matches your hair color.  But I agree with PP, more mascara and/or fake eyelashes.

    Looks great! πŸ˜€ it’s amazing how much difference a little thing like eyebrows make to a face hehe.

     

    I like your bronze eyeshadow as well ^^

    Your new eyebrows look great, and I like lips #2 and lips #3!  I agree that mascara, fake eyelashes, and maybe a little eyeliner would also be great and help your eyes pop.

    @swimcat14:  Love the updated look and brows! All you need is a more dramatic eye and heavier contouring, and you’re all set!

    Oh, and I chose lipstick two like everyone else did. πŸ™‚

    @swimcat14:  I like lipstick #2 – it’s very fresh and pretty on you! The rest is nice and natural, though I think a soft pink blush would be prettier with this look.

    I like #2 best.

     

    Are you planning on more eye make-up? I would definately line your eyes (even with eye shadow and a brush for a softer line) and add lots and lots of mascara after using an eyelash curler. You want to accentuate your pretty blues!! And I love your freckles!

     

     Don’t forget a touch of highlighter in the corner of your eyes and the highest part of your cheek bones. I use ELF that you can get at Target for $1! It really makes your skin pop. They also have an eye lash curler for $1 that doesn’t suck.

     

    I admire you doing this. I love make-up and can do it well but I am terrified to do it on my wedding day. I would FREAK if I didn’t do it perfectly. I know…I’m weird!!

    @swimcat14:  They look great and still very natural! It’s amazing how changing something so small can make such a big difference! I agree with PPs, go with #2 make-up, with a little heavier eye make-up and false eyelashes or a really good mascara and your eyes will pop!

    @swimcat14:  This is the site that I use to look up all my makeup inquiries. I don’t wear a lot either but they also have info on cleansers etc. and it can help get the infomation you need and in the price range you want.

    I’m so glad I found this thread!  I did my first trial of DIY makeup today.  I took a picture with a good camera, and none of the eyeshadow, contouring and blush showed up.  SO, I applied another layer of everything, and I looked so…DRAMATIC and dragqueenish, BUT the camera image showed up perfect.  So my question is…look better natural but washed out on camera OR look like a dragqueen but great on film?  Or is there a happy medium that I have to find?  Thanks!!
