It looks very nice (wow! your eyes are BLUE!) but I might suggest pumping up the eyes, blush and lipstick a little bit — if you’re comfortable with a little more makeup!  Only you can really know if you’re comfortable — and that usually correlates with how much makeup you wear normally (or for a special occasion, for example).

How about a little bit of eye liner? On the top only though, I think your eyes are too small to handle it on the bottom too. Maybe a little bit of eye shadow and a lipstick with just a little bit more color? Over all it looks very nice though! I like the more natural looks.

I would agree with putting eye liner on the upper lid only. Also, try some false eyelashes, they will give you the "doe-eyes" you are hoping for. For your lips you can always use a gloss with a tint of color. They will stay pale but give a hint of shine. Don’t forget that you will need to bump up everything for the pictures.

I second manchi’s suggestion… Go for the faux lashes! They make a HUGE difference in making your eyes look bigger. I have small eyes too and I LOVED my faux lashes on my wedding day.

i love the mission inn.  gorgeous backdrop for a wedding and very romantic.  so here is my suggestion.  go with an updo for the hair.  i think it wil maintain better throughout the day.  i’m a MAC girl when it comes to make-up so here i go.  for eyes i would go with one of the paint pots for a primer. they have a shimmery neutral one, i forget the name.  use that all over the lid, then use the Shroom shadow all over, including the inner eye.  then use a powder liner.  i used Bow Tied (a shadow).  add a little shimmer to your crease with a pink or bronze shadow.  i love fake lashes or go with the Zoom Lash mascara if you just want to emphasize what you have.  for lips i would go with the new Viva Glam six.  its pretty pink.  i put on the lipstick first, then the gloss.  it may look too pink at first, but i think its a really sweet color and would look great with your coloring.  add a touch of blush and i think you are set.  for a morning wedding this will be just done enough and not over dramatic.  i bet you can get some amazing pictures in the big spiral staircase!
