I am trying to perfect my DIY makeup look and I was wondering if anyone had feedback on my makeup? My wedding will be taking place outside during the day. Here I am making unflattering faces in various lighting conditions 🙂

Beautiful!! You did a great job!
The only thing I would change is add a bit more blush, just a touch to a bit more colour. Otherwise it’s perfect!

@Ms. Martian: @Jamcnair: Thank you both! I do plan on wearing more blush than this. I also plan on applying my false eyelashes a bit straighter 😉 Now I just need to figure out the DIY hair… eek!

I agree with the PPs about the blush; but overall looks good. You did a great job!

I think you did a fabulous job! Especially your eyes~ love the lashes (even if you say they’re crooked!)

I agree about the blush and when you apply it, perhaps you can add a light dusting of it to your forehead, nose and chin. Overall, your makeup looks great!

Looks gorgeous! I’d add a little more blush and also a little brighter lip.

Aw, so pretty! I think those are very flattering faces! haha.
One thing that always make my makeup pop and last longer is mineral veil by bare minerals. I would definitely recommend it. It’s great for sensitive skin and wont break you out. It sets the makeup and looks great for pictures! And I think just a little more of the pink blush would be nice for the pictures.

Omg you look so pretty! I agree with PPs, more blush. And maybe just a shade darker or sparklier on your eyes. But that’s IT, amazing job!

Beautiful job! Your eyes look especially lovely. My only addition would echo PPs in adding a bit of blush or contour bronzer for a bit more definition in outdoor photos especially. You did a great job!

Thanks so much everyone! The feedback was quite helpful. I did notice my blush looked too light in the photos too, I think it’s because the brand I am wearing (Tarte) is a lot more translucent than what I am used to wearing (urban decay). I definitely prefer Tarte’s blush but I always feel like I’m going to look like a clown when I have to put a lot more on 🙂 I will probably try again next week and post updated pictures if it looks a little better. Thanks again!

I would add more color to your cheeks. Other than that, you did a great job. Beautiful!
