Would love your opinion on my hair and makeup. I was going for a vintage look with the winged out eyes and kept everything else pretty natural. I don’t have a pic of the final look with lipstick on, but I have a video… not sure how to upload that. But… without further ado – here goes!
this is the makeup and possible lipcolor. i ended up going with something a little more bright since i thought this was pretty but it didnt pop at much. oh, and we took my updo down so i didnt look all bridal all day long.
my theme is vintage modern and my dress is a very simple, structured strapless.

i was going for a messy, low look

I think your makeup looks fab. I would personally clean up the bun some. You can achieve a “messy” look w/o truely being messy. but hey if you love it who am I to stop you?!

LOVE it! Especially the lip color. I would think about a teeny more blush, but that’s it! Love the hair as well.

You’re going to look so pretty on your big day! Love your hair and makeup, but would add a bit more blush to the apples of your cheeks!

thanks all – i think i will do a tiny bit more blush on the real day.
appreciate the comments!! 🙂
p.s. wearing lipstick is so weird. i am not used to it AT ALL. i think i am going to use a “lip primer”… thats what the lady at sephora recommended anyway.

I love both the hair and makeup! The lip color is perfect.

I really love the hair! The makeup is nice too, but I think maybe you should add a bit more. It looks natural, but maybe a bit everyday.

@MademoiselleL:thanks! i plan on a little more blush and my eyes are pretty dramatic when i am not smiling (it causes the eyeliner to hide in my eye creases).

I think the makeup looks great on you.
However, I think your hair should be a little more done looking. I’m not talking curly prom style or over-the-top red carpet. And I know you said that you wanted a messy low look, but that’s exactly what it looks like… a little on the messy side. I can guarantee you’re paying good money for your up-do, so you might as well get the most bang for your dollar and do something that you wanted be able to do yourself post-a-trip-to-the-beach…
I definitely like the braid coming in and being tucked into the bun. But maybe if you add a little accessory piece or somethinggg so it looks more styled and less casual? Just my personal opinion though. Either way, you’ll look gorgeous!

I agree with some of the previous posters about the bun. I think it’s a little too messy. It kind of looks like you rolled around somewhere. I think you can have it be messy but a little more polished, so it doesn’t look tangly.
Sorry, not trying to be rude.

The makeup looks really nice. I think it looks classy and not overdone, and it is fairly natural-looking without looking too “everyday.” The lip color looks great too. I disagree about needing more blush; I think more would look too unnatural…but I’m just not a fan of very much blush. 🙂
