    Too dark for what?

    I think if you’re talking model pictures the dark looks pretty glamorous.  I think if you’re asking about a bridal day look it might look a little “had a rough night last night.”

    Are you DIYing make-up or using a MUA?  Maybe you can show your MUA and she’ll have ideas about how to do dark and dramatic whilst keeping the glamour!

    Mixture.  Yes I think this is too dark — for me (and overall for a wedding).  But do what you like!

    I wouldn’t do black for the wedding but I am doing dark brown for my smoky eye instead. I am using Urban Decay’s Darkhorse for my outer corners.

    while this is way too dark for my taste, I think this could work if you did dark lips OR dark smoky eyes, but not both.

    ETA: i.e. smoky eye + neutral lips, or neutral eyes + dark lips.

    I think it depends on what it looks like on you, what your dress looks like, and whys the vibe you’re going for?

    @mrstaylortobe:  I adore taking artistic license with your wedding day look. But why not try a more either-or approach?


    Dark lips with artistic eyeliner:


    Or smoky/heavier eye with toned-down lips:


    Or how about a red/deep red lip:

    While I think the eyes could work, I’d go with more of a ruby lip.

    @mrstaylortobe:  You’re welcome. 🙂 I also added a couple more photos because I got overly-excited. Embarassed


    I love that you’re still choosing to be you on your wedding day, and whatever you choose, I think your look is going to turn out fabulous!

    Only you can know if, in 10 years, you will look back on your makeup and think “I’m AWESOME!” or “What the fuck was I thinking.”


    Good luck!
