Ok so we did our engagement photos tonight. And so I went ahead and did my make up trial. Once I got home I threw on one of the veils I made and put my hair sort of up just to get an idea of how an updo. Would look. Any hair ideas for short hair? I also considered doing just down and soft vintage curls. My hair is naturally straight as can be and very fine. Also my dress is Maggie Sottero Lacey in Champagne. I was thinking I might ask her for a more dramatic wing on the liner but I’m not sure.

I think the eyeliner is a bit heavy and a softer lip would be better. Otherwise it looks nice.

I agree with the softer lip but I LOVE your eyeliner. I think youre smokey eye may be too harsh with the lace dress. Maybe stick with a neutral( brown) smokey eye.

Love the skin, agree with the softer lip, I actually like the eyes! It sounds like you are going for dramatic hence the thought about asking for more of a wing on the liner. If so, you achieved the more dramatic eye effect. That is why I think a softer lip–it wouldn’t compete so much with the eyes.

If it goes with your theme, then it’s perfect. I think the makeup is beautifully done, but its a little heavy for my taste. I wouldn’t go with a more dramatic eye, I think it’s already very dramatic. My general rule of thumb is to do a softer lip if you’ve got a dramatic eye, or a more dramatic lip with a softer eye, but both together can be A bit harsh. Just my personal opinion. Again, it’s beautifully done and you do look beautiful, so if it goes with your theme, then go for it 🙂

I love everything about the look in the last picture – beautiful. I wouldn’t do more dramatic eye liner I think it’s perfect. I like the lip color too, but a lighter color would also be pretty.

Aww thanks everyone!
Here was my inspiration photos. And our theme is a bit all over the place. Lol one of the things that sort of inspired our theme was vampire diaries (mostly the cast photos for the season) They are always dark with pops of deep red. So our theme is sort of vintage dark and romantic. But just like in the series the vinatage influences come from a lot of different decades.
Dress: Probably with a black velvet sash to match Fiance velvet jacket
