excited567 :  The hair I think will work great but I am not a fan of the makeup. The eyes and the lip look good seperately but together the colors just don’t go, maybe go fo a neutral tone eyeshadow colors? Maybe greys/black, or beige/brown colors.

Too much imo. 

The makeup on its own it’s too much. Agree with PP red lips and pink lids definitely clash. Also the diamonds in your eyes are too much with the full on crown, pick one or the other. The hair is gorgeous but altogether the look is a little clown-ish to me. Maybe because of the clashing? Idk.

I think the hair is stunning but more neutral shades for the make up will work better. The hair and dress is show stopping enough!

I love the hair but the makeup is layered on and you could go for more natural eyes with some eyeliner if you’re set on the lips.

The hair is pretty and very princess-y, which will work well with a huge ball gown. I’m not a fan of the makeup. There are just too many colours on your lid+lips, which looks clown-ish. If you want to go with a red lip, you should try a more natural eye or even a heavier eye with more neutral colours.

HONEST opinion? A bit drag queen to me.

I don’t hate the hair, I would wear it for a few hours to see how the curls and all the back combing sits. I’m not a fan of the crown thing, nor how the hair flops over it on the back. The makeup is much too much IMO. I’m going for a glamourous look (and can def appreciate that type of look), but all the different colours and the sparkle and the shimmer is OTT.

excited567 :  I love your big princess hair but the makeup is a little…drag. Bold eye, bold lip and bright blush look harsh all together. I’d tone down the eye makeup (the eyeliner wing is so long it’s almost touching your eyebrow) with neutral shadow and a more sublte bown cat eye. I’d keep the lipstick but soften up the blush.

I agree with PP. Love the hair but go with a softer palate for the make up

Hair is lovely. I would not do a color on the eyelid , it would look better doing like a soft brown or something a little more natural.

If you are looking for a bold, glamorous look then you are certainly on track! You have absolutely beautiful skin and  a wonderful skin color, and if you want to go bold I’d try to go for a more smoky look with either burgundys, reds, browns, blacks, etc. Look up the Morphe 35O palette, it is just about the color palette that would look amazing on you! I love the liner, but I’d have to ditch those jewels (they’re cute, though). 

If you want more subtle, I’d go with a subtle light brown/nude eye with thin cat style liner and fake lashes and top it off with a cute lip color! Maybe even some gold or silver glitter on the lid to make it pop more.

Your hair looks FANTASTIC though. I wouldn’t change a thing about it, very flattering!

It’s very full on but that in itself is a look you may like. 

I think drop the eye diamonds. 

Maybe try your tiara placement further forward on your head not tilted and so far back. Google ‘royal tiaras’ and it’ll show you how they should be worn. 

I think a more neutral eye colour could work well with your fab coloured hair. You can still go ultra bold but just more rust/browns/chocolate colours maybe. Love the lips!

Although the look is not my style, I can see what you are going for.


The only thing I would change is the eyeshadow color. I don’t feel the purple is very flattering esp with the lips. Go for a more neutral shade. You should keep the liner wings and jewels 😉 I think they will look great as long as you tone down the shadow color.
