    I’m a make-up artist, and I do bridal make-up all the time. I LOVE the lip and the blush! They’re absolutely perfect. For you eyes, I would go for a little more color to define them in your pictures. Are your eyes hazel? I would go for a sheer pink or golden shadow from brow line to lashline, then a plum shadow to contour the crease of your eyes. (Stay away from shimmery shadows, as they can create strange shadows and relections when being photographed) Also, I would use a bronze or chocolate eye liner heavier on the top lash line, but lighter on the bottom, this will exaggerate your lashes, and give a more natural look. Finally, I would go a little heavier on the lashes as well. It really helps to bring attention to your eyes in photographs. You could apply false lashes and trim them down to give a fuller, but still natural look, or try my favorite mascara combo: 2 coats Rimmel “Scandaleyes” mascara (gives great length), then 2 coats Maybeline “falsies, black drama” (Gives great volume). I hope this helps! You will be a BEAUTIFUL Bride!

    I agree with PP – a bit more colour to define the eyes. LOVE the pinky lip and cheeks though! πŸ™‚

    P.s… if I was mistaken and your eyes are blue, Keep the brown liner, and go with a gold shadow all over, then a bronze or copper countour shade.

    @AlmostMrsShea:  +1

    I think a little more color would soften the contrast between the pink lip and peachy cheeks. Right now, it looks a little harsh, so a chocolate brown with some of the colors

    I’ve read a lot of good things about Revlon PhotoReady makeup recently.

    The lip color you picked out is pretty, but is really blue-toned and looks almost neon on your skin.  It might look different in daylight however.  I’d try to find something that looks a bit more natural if that’s the look you are going for.  A bright rose color would look really good on you.

    I think your cheek color is just right.

    Did you curl your lashes?  That would help open your eyes up a lot more.

    I think for eyeshadow you could go with a couple different looks.  Try to find matte shadows, although you could tap a little bit of a light shimmer/frost shadow on your browbone to highlight.  I think lighter colors would help your eyes pop more, and use a dark liner (gel or liquid) and black mascara.

    Cream all over, taupe on the lid, and a medium brown in the crease

    Cream all over, light gray on the lid and a medium grey in the crease.

    ETA: Revlon Ultimate Suede colors to look at (I haven’t used this but have heard good things about it): womenswear, socialite, preview.  For other color references, I also look better in bluish pinks, and the two colors I picked up recently were Chanel Rouge Coco in Orchidee and Legende (although Mademoiselle and Camelia look good on me too).

    ETA #2: Some Maybelline palettes to look into (some of these seem overly frosty to me so I’d check or read reviews): 3-pan ExpertWear in Impeccable Grays or Almond Satin; 4-pan in Natural Smokes or Designer Chocolates.  I recommend lighter colors because dark colors will make your eyes recede more, light colors make them come forward more.

    @magglemay-2013:  I love the natural look of your make-up! It looks great and it enhances your beauty instead of covering it up and making you look overdone! They did a really good job. Maybe you could go for a slighter darker eyeshadow if you are planning to wear your glasses on your wedding day? Otherwise, it looks beautiful! πŸ™‚

    This look is a HUGE improvement over the other look!

    I like it alot, I do agree that you could use a little more on the eyes for them to really pop.. if you plan on wearing glasses you have to add tons to make your eyes pop from behind glasses.
