the third photo looks a TON better than the job the air-brusher did last time! good work!

if it were me, i might do a tad less eyeshadow (or maybe not use the dark eye shadow all the way up towards your brows.)

I think it looks really nice. Only one suggestion, though. Try to add a bit more highlight under your brow bone. The shadow looks dark all over your eye so I would add a bit more light shadow there. Ohter than that I think you’ll do a wonderful job on your wedding day!

Yours eyes look fantastic and really POP in the pictures, but your skin comes across as looking too red/orange, especially when compared next to your nautral skin color. You might want to ligten up on the foundation or powder some? Maybe a little less blush… Just a suggestion.

Otherwise, you look very pretty.

I agree with rabbit – the makeup looks great but the color looks a little off – especially in the first photo. It may have something to do with the lighting.

Other than that I think it looks amazing – I am very impressed that it’s your first try!

Congratulations! You did a fabulous job of applying your own makeup. Be assured that any of the tweeks you want to make have nothing to due with how you put the makeup on, but more with the products.

You can eliminate the shine by only using the powder on the matte setting. That will make a huge difference. I do like the bit of glow on your cheeks, so you might want to add a bit of the powder on the luminous setting with your blush.

Your eyes look great! To accent your beautiful eyebrows use a lighter eyeshadow under them, maybe a soft peach or ivory. It would add a professional polish to the look.

Lastly, it is difficult to tell from the photos if the foundation is too dark compared to your neck and chest, or if it is just that you used too much bronzer. The foundation should be no more than 1/2 shade darker than your neck. When you are using a bronzer than be sure to also brush some on your neck and across your chest to make it seem more natural. But use a light hand… my DIY motto is that it is always easier to add a bit more than to take away too much!
