Indoors with the bright lighting, it definitely looks dramatic. However, it the next two pictures it looks absolutely beautiful. If the majority of your photos will be taken outside, it’s awesome. 


If I had to make one suggestion, the lip color seems a little off.. maybe a little lighter or a slightly different shade.

I like the last two pics best but over allthe heavy eyemake up makes your eyes seems small. you may want to think about reversing the heavy make up and having darker lips and lighter eyes to open them up a bit.


But gorgeous!

@dragonlover:  Love the eyeshadow shades but looks like the outer corners need a little more blending from what I can see the outside looks a little heavy and maybe have her fill in your brows to make your eyes stand out even more!  I think you you gonna make a gorgeous bride just make a little more tweeking to get it just right!

Something about the eye makeup is off. I think it’s that the eye shadow is really dark on the outer edges of your eyes, but it seems light everywhere else. I’d experiement with making it lighter all around.

Your eyes are similar to mine, where our eyes are hooded & we have quite a bit of space from our eye to our eyebrows. Mine are actually more hooded then yours, but still very similar eye shape.  

Beacuse of this eye shape, I RARELY expand my eyeshadow above my crease – yours is extended quite a bit which is making your eyes smaller. Instead of going above the eye, your artist should focus on longated your eye, but slightly winging the shadow on the sides vs. creating a circular effect/almost racoon like effect. Also with eye shapes like ours, I like my eyes best when I have noticable top eyeliner (yours is noticable, but I would darken it up) as well as false eyelashes that help since our eyes are more sunken in. Here is a wedding pic, the darkest shadow is not above my eyes, but instead winged to the side – this is the look I prefer.

Agree about the eye makeup. Something is off, the colors don’t seem blended well. I would go round #2. Doesn’t look like yout wearing lashes. I really suggest them, they make your eyes pop. If you are wearing them then maybe fuller eyeslashes.

@dragonlover:  My suggestion – skip the dark black eyeliner. Yes, it can look dramatic sometimes, but usually it just makes your eyes look small. I’d try another colour (brown given the colour of your eye shadow, but navy blue makes eyes POP).

Can I also suggest less blush and more bronzer? I think that would make a world of difference 🙂
