I dont ever wear eyeliner. The very first time I ever did, it was really natural and barely visible, everyone and their mom commented and said how they could see I chose to wear mu, lol. I mean everyone that I saw, even the guy at the gas station. So really, I never ever wear mu that you can see.
Fiance also doesn’t "care for it" … he doesn’t like it at all, but if I like it he would, but I don’t like it, lol.
Do I have to use it for my wedding day? What about eye shadow? I don’t wear eye shadow either. Lol. I don’t like how it looks. Even if I get expensive, pro mu and they pick out the colors, I don’t like how it looks fake.
Yes, I’m weird about mu.
What do you think? On my wedding day, do I need to wear it? When my fiance looks at me he would be shocked, lol. Will the pictures look horrible if I don’t wear it?

i definitely don’t think you wear anything you feel uncomfortable in! people want to see YOU after all, and if you feel its so not you i say skip it! i don’t think you need it for good pics at all.

Ah thats the joy of waterproof eye liner as well!
If you don’t normally wear it, and by the sounds of this post and others you definetly want to keep it natural and look the same as you rgularly do, you can defintly find a happy place where the make up is more natural, but you are wearing it. believe me.
You can find eye shadows that work with your skin tone to shape your eyes out and make them brighter for the big day and especially photos.
But you defintely dont NEED to wear eye liner if you dont feel comfortable in it.
I used to be the biggest tom boy and didn’t TOUCH mu until I was about 16. I have been hooked ever since and have spent thousands of dollars on the stuff! :S when I first started wearing eyeliner I hated it too. So I know how you feel. I would advise not to start wearing it o nyour weddiung day then
Also if you wanted a more subtle look, rather than a hard lined eye, you could use an angled brushe dipped into say…a very toupe, or light brown color (rather than a black) and line your eye slightly for a soft look, still will look like your wearing eye liner but not so in your face!

I never wear eyeliner in "real life," but I did for my wedding just because I knew it would help to define my eyes in pcitures. But don’t do anything you won’t be comfortable with. I think comfort during your wedding day is so important!

You never want to look different form youself on your wedding day–only an enhanced version!
You and your fi might not like black or dark brown eyeliner, but have you tried a softer brown/blone or blue? I frequently wear an olive green eyeliner (very thinly) and it’s much less noticeable.
Ultimately, I would say try a few looks, even if you do it on your own. But if it’s not you, it’s not you! Don’t feel pressured to wear makeup you aren’t comfortable in!

wear fake eyelashes!!! they have them in all types and lengths so they wont look unnatural but they will give you full lashes, perfect for pics and great to wear by themselves with minimal eyemakeup.

Do whatever makes you feel comfortable – if you don’t feel yourself, it may come through in your pictures. I don’t think eyeliner is absolutely necessary – if you would like some definition, you could try an eyeliner brush dipped in eyeshadow. I’m sure you’ll look beautiful whatever decision you make! Good luck!

I don’t really look good with eyeliner or lots of eyeshadow. Instead of caking it on for the wedding and looking unnatural, I just went with light and neutral colors of eyeshadow and very thin eyeliner on the top lid only. My eyes were done in all tans, light golds, and pinks. I think it wasn’t too outside the box from how I normally look, but it was definitely a step up from my everyday look. Could you start experimenting a little now? Find something you like that makes you look more special than every day; it doesn’t have to be a ton of makeup to achieve that special look!

I am not a fan of the over made face…which one has to understand that I don’t wear much or any make-up, like you, and like your FH my FH doesn’t really care for it, or much of it. He like natural and pretty.
However, I might add that being blonde I do give a few things a boost. I color my eyebrows and eyelashes with men’s mustache dye. So, if you don’t do make-up, you might consider a few things that are pretty but don’t make you look like someone else. Besides, modern cameras are so much better these days that you don’t have to wear a pancake face to look good and if you do look like a pancake face the photos can be processed so as to make you look less intense. But you might also ask your photographer what the recommend by explaining your situation.
If you do wear mascara, get waterproof. But only after you have colored your lashes…I promise, it really does wonders. Or you can get a clear gel if you prefer no mascara. you could use concealer in the under eye area, with loose power on top, but don’t powder your cheeks, they will look too matte and not at all natural. Give a little blush or cheek stain to the area you like or want to show a little more color. Then pick a lipstick that you really love, maybe it is really bold or more muted and demure. But make it great while still remaining kissable.
I am so nervous about getting someone to do my make-up as I know that I don’t look bad but also, it is my wedding night and we haven’t done the premarital sex thing…I want face and hair that look like me and are touchable.

i’m likely skipping eyeliner because i wear contacts and it tends to irritate my eyes. i will, however, have false eyelashes — no mascara cos i think i may be Ugly Cry Bride 🙁
