I think your eyes look gorgeous. I like the look overall but your eyes really stand out.

BringOnTheHappy :  It’s really easy I promise – check out videos on Youtube by Lisa Eldridge and Wayne Goss – Wayne Goss in particular has one on socket definition for hooded eyes that would also work well on your eyes, its´such a simple technique: https://youtu.be/bsk225aaOUo

I’m sorry, but I think this is just way too much glittering/gold. It looks like a party-make-up that would go perfect for every saturday evening but not for a wedding, if you know what I mean.

How glittering is your dress? I’d suggest to add shades of brown.

BringOnTheHappy : 

I think you did a really good job!

If I was to give any advice (of course, makeup is subjective so this is just my opinion) I would say that the eyebrows need more shape and definition, but I assume you already know this given the mention in your post.

Then I would blend the darker eyeshadow a bit more, so there is no visible line when it transitions into your brow bone. If you find it hard to do so, what I usually do is take a MATTE (no shimmer!) eyeshadow that looks invisible on my skin (I use one from Urban Decay Naked 2 palette) and blend it from my brow and down to the crease color, using a blending brush (not an eyeshadow brush). This is also a good tip if you’ve gone overboard with the crease color, as you are able to tone it down. 

I like the eyeshadow and to compliment it even more, I would probably curl the lashes a bit and maybe use a more volumizing mascara, since you are also wearing black eyeliner. In my book, black/dark eyeliner requires extra mascara to look proportional. 

I can’t really tell from your pics what you’re wearing on your skin, but it looks very natural and you did really good, but you could (if you like it) add a hint of blush on your cheeks?
Maybe pick one out that has the same tone (not color) as the lipstick you end up choosing – this is normally a pretty good rule to go by.
And I actually think the lipstick looks very nice on you, but you should get one that you like 🙂 

All in all, I think your makeup looks really nice and if you just twist and tweak a little, it will be perfect. 

Oh, one more thing! Remember a good primer and a good finishing spray! This is really important for wedding makeup, so it stays put all day 🙂

BringOnTheHappy :  By the way! There is a light matte shade in the naked 2 palette, that works really good as a highlight/brow bone blending color! I think it’s called “Foxy” – it’s the one I use, and it is perfect!!

No feedback as a lot has been covered. Just wanted to say that you are cute as a button and that your eyes should definitely be the focus. Once your brows are on point a lot is going to fall into place.

We have similar colored eyes, and if you’re wanting to experiment and see how it would work, I LOVE using a dark purple eyeliner instead of black. It makes my eyes totally pop! Clinique has one, I think it’s called plum or violet, that’s amazing.

BringOnTheHappy :  It definitely doesn’t show up as purple since it’s darker and not a bright royal color, it just adds more dimension that a standard black or brown would. You’re beautiful and did a wonderful job!

Given your coloring, I think you should soften your overall look a bit. You look amazing but I think you could look even better with a more subtle pale gold and not so bold. Also I second not using black eyeliner. I use a dark purple and it looks a thousand turns better than black. Black is too harsh for most and I am a dark brunette. 

I use Anastasia dip brow pomade for eyebrows and I think its hands down the best brow product out there that I’ve ever tried. I’ve never had anything match so well or look so natural. Just my thoughts.

If my wedding make up looks half as good as yours I will be very happy. You look lovely.
