Ok, I really like the hair but honestly, the makeup needs improvement. The lip color in the last photo is really nice but it’s the only thing that made me go “yeah!”

I think these are the biggest issues:

-Your MUA used too dark of a shade on your brows. Brows SHOULD be darker than your hair color, but only by a shade or so. She did yours way too dark and thick. The inner edges really need to be thinned out with a spooly, too. They’re way too “caterpillar” the way she did them and it’s distracting

-a bit more eyeliner on the upper lashline and less on the lower lashline would really open up your eyes more, esp if you’re going to be rocking falsies

-you have great cheeks and dimples and she did not use enough blush to capitalize on that!

-the foundation looks too dark in the first two pics, but closer to your skin tone in the third pic. But in all of them, it looks like she didn’t blend it with your neck/clavicle area enough. That’s an easy fix.

Honestly I didn’t really notice the darker shade until nimhsparkly pointed it out. If it was someone who wasn’t sent to scrutinize and review your makeup, I am sure the normal person would not even notice the difference. I just thought you looked nice and you have a great smile! Being happy on your big day is going to matter a lot more than hair and makeup, since photo editing nowadays can do wonders but photoshopping a smile on will just look out of place.

I personally like thick, dark brows! It’s fashionable in Asian countries to have naturally thicker brows. It makes you look more youthful–but then again, NOBODY looks good with pencil-drawn brows. 

Nope. Just nope to that.

Also, I find noticeable blush to be too clownish to see in person. Might look good in photos, though. 

I am biased though, since I prefer natural-looking makeup.

Brows must be a regional thing because at the moment in Australia strong brows are very fashionable. 

Anyway, I think you look beautiful! Love it all!

You’re so pretty! I love your smile, and as PP said, your confident happiness will shine through and is the most important thing. I used to be a professional MUA and I like what she did. 

I would do a pinker nude lip and a bit more blushing bride cheeks, and maybe knock out some of the lower liner and add a nice smoked and sparkly chocolate or copper depending on your lips and blush color. But if you got married just like this, it would be beautiful:-)

I personally think you look amazing!! The foundation does look a bit too dark in a couple of the pics, but aside from that I wouldn’t change a thing!! And I especially love the eye makeup, lower liner and all!!
