I like the right, more natural eye a lot better. High maintenance make up on a stressful, let’s admit – sweaty, day doesn’t make sense to me

I like the dramatic eyeliner. But I’m a dramatic eyeliner girl. 🙂 I ended up doing my own eyeliner and mascara on the day-of because I am very confident in how I do it and wasn’t thrilled with the trial. Like you, it was just too light. And she kept telling me to use a purple eyeliner. I was like, no.

I’ll be honest, I don’t love the eyeshadow because I feel like that may not be the right color palette for your skin tone/eye color. I don’t have any suggestions, but it was my first thought color-wise.

Also, I agree with you that the hair is “meh.” It could be more polished or finished I think. This is REALLY similar to what I did with my hair, so I definitely say a bit more curl and better finishes. I like the overall style though! I think it’s flattering.

You know what, you’re gorgeous but I don’t think the hairstyle or makeup do you justice!  I know next to nothing about makeup so I don’t have any great suggestions, but I just feel like you could pull off a more dramatic look without looking too “out there” or unlike yourself. 🙂

i like it!! (for both).. the only suggestion would be to maybe make the shadow a bit lighter (or maybe just your left eye is heavier than the other? but i reallllly like the dramatic eyeliner

I’m really loving the natural eye! You have gorgeous features and don’t need a lot of makeup.

If you do go for dramatic, maybe something in a slightly different color?

The hair definitely needs reworking though.

Btw, you look a LOT like my old boss. She’s a knockout too.

I agree that you can carry a heavier makeup look. I’m a little concerned that it looks like the darker eye shadow in your crease isn’t blended. That would not look pretty in wedding photos!

I kind of feel like the right eye is too heavy on the shadow/not blended enough, but I too am an eyeliner addict, so can see why you’d be pushing for a little more drama there.

I think you can carry off a more dramatic look, but I’m not sure I like the more dramatic eye. I don’t feel like it’s well blended (the crease looks sloppy adn not blended at all to me). Would you want to do the more natural eye and maybe a more drmatic lip? The hair is pretty

I like the more natural eye, just because I don’t feel the shadow in the crease is anywhere near blended enough.

What I see though, is that it doesn’t look like she;s dine any contouring, highlighting or blush…  to me that’s what gives professional makeup that “wow” factor.

I think it depends on the time of day that you’re planning to have your wedding and reception. If it’s later, then I think you’d look great with more of a smokey eye. If it’s starting earlier in the afternoon, then you might not want to go too dramatic. Evening eye shadow during the daytime can be bad. You could always start out more natural and then have someone give you a smokey eye shadow look for an evening reception, but having a make-up person do the touch-up might get expensive.

Honestly? I like your everyday look best! Save some money and do your own makeup!
