I would say heavier blush and heavier eye.

You look GORGEOUS! I think maybe upping the blush would be a good idea for photo sake. Pictures wash people out. For my E-pics I felt like a clown because of how much makeup I was wearing, but it looked like just barely enough in the pics. 

I actually think your eyes need to be a littttle bit darker as well. 

For your hair, I’d have her add some more volume to your roots. She can do this with a root lifter or just some basic teasing, but as the night goes on your hair will fall anyway so you want as much “oomph” as possible to begin with. I’m not saying Dolly Parton volume, but a little bit more. I know you said you took a nap on it, so I can’t be sure exactly what she did, but you’ll definitely want hairspray to keep some volume on the day of.

@radishtime:  you’re beautiful. gorgeous skin.

i would suggest going darker.  trust me.  in pro pics your makeup will looked washed from the flashes so you need that bit extra.  minimum 50% more.  it will look like a lot in person but your pics will be exceptional.

I also really wanted a natural look for my wedding day. I ended up wearing my “wedding makeup” at least once a week for months before the wedding so I felt more comfortable in it the day-of. It worked lol and now I love wearing blush 🙂 

More blush (maybe you can use bronzer instead) and eyeliner. Also a darker shade in your crease.

I would also use a shimmery highligher color for the inner corners of your eyes and just under your eyebrows.

I think it looks beautiful as it, but if you want to amp it up a little bit more, I think as you suggested and more eyeshadow. You hair looks great!

Wow. You are beutiful. I agree with more blush. I think the eye shadow could be a little more/a little darker. The liner and lashes are fine, but the lid could use some oomph. And maybe a slightly darker lip, if you want. But you look awesome!!

Heavier eye makeup. And it looks like you’re wearing a set of falsies, but it must not be put on correctly because when your eyes are open you can’t tell they are there at all.

You are naturally beautiful and don’t need too much but for the sake of pics I’d amp up everything a bit more! More blush and eyeshadow to make the eyes pop.

STUNNING! and wonderful skin…more blush/bronzer, more eyebrow definition and curl lashes.  It seems like a lot, but in pictures even your darker skin tone might look pale and flat.
