I always think Mandy Moore looks pretty and natural on the red carpet . . .

Hey! Lashes are a must have if you can wear them. Of course play up your eyes! I usually add a kiss of your accent color on the eyes or the bridesmaids dresses. It will pull those colors anyway and make your eyes pop. Keep the skin soft but make sure you have coverage and extra blush/bronzer. You “lose” 50-60% of your “makeup” in photographs because of the lighting and process so I ALWAYS add extra so you dont look flat and lifeless. Gloss it up, its easy and most importantly use one not overly sticky so your hubby can kiss you with out super stick glitter lips. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mine was very natural, but I felt like a movie star! Just… a little redder in the lips than usual, and some stunning brown eyeshadows.

Still no pics of my own, but Megan Wilinkson’s blog has a few shots showing my make up.

This was from my hair/makeup consultation! I have really dark brown eyes, but they’re obviously closed in this shot ๐Ÿ˜›

Sooo many lovely ideas already.  Although I’m a dirty blonde, this is my eye makeup from my recent boudoir session.  I think the makeup artist did a nice job making my eyes pop.

Here’s me on my hair/MU trial day. I had false lashes on and very light foundation/shadows and a natural color on the lips. On my wedding day I went with a different style for the hair but similar make up ๐Ÿ™‚ (no pic’s yet)

Hope this helps.
