I did a makeup trial on myself for my engagement party I did 2 trials one a few weeks ago and one tonight. I made a thread about the makeup trial a few weeks ago and got lots of feedback from people some said to wear a lighter pink lip and clip my fringe back which I did for my 2nd trial. I’ll post pics of both hair and makeup looks so you can compare and I’ll post a poll so you can vote which one to go for 🙂
1st Hair & Makeup trial
I went for silver and grey smokey eyes, bright pink lips and I’m not wearing fake tan in this PIC but I will be on the night of my engagement party. I curled my hair with my curling wand and left the side firing straight
2nd Hair & Makeup Trial
I kept the silver and grey smokey eyes but went with a nude pink lip and I’m wearing fake tan in these pictures and my face is more contoured. My hair is more subtle wave but I’ve clipped my side fringe up in a quiff I’m gonna curl it on the night.
What do you think? Feel free to leave other suggestions too xo

I don’t like your bangs pinned up like that all all. If anything I’d clip them to the side with a pretty barrette. Your eye makeup in both pics is good, but I think there needs to be a happy medium between the fuschia lipstick and nude lipstick.

I prefer the first, with a lighter pink. Not a nude, just not as much of a “hot” pink. For the hair, I’d stick with the first picture, but try to put a bit of a bend in your bangs so they’re not so straight.

thanks for your suggestion yes I sometimes pin my side fringe to the side with a twist I could do that for my engagement party 🙂 I have a light pink lipstick that bright but not too in your face so I could consider that too xo

thanks for your suggestions 🙂 I could do that only thing is I think my hair looks a bit lighter when my side fringe is in a quiff for some reason lol but I’ll defo pay more attention to my hair and makeup for my engagement party xo

I like the first look MUCH better! I personally like the pink, and I think it looks great. Very fashion-forward. In the 2nd trial you look a little younger and more “princessy.”
I would probably add a little more blush either way though.

Makeup artist here, I much prefer the 1st. I love the darker pink on you. It makes the look pop! 🙂

Yes, I much prefer the first look. Maybe a happy medium between the darker pink and the nude as a previous poster said, but the darker pink looks great on you; you can definitely pull it off. However, the pinned back bangs in the second set of pictures do not flatter the shape of your face or your features. I would avoid that look and go with a swooped bang to the side, subtly pinned to the side, or clipped to the side with a nice barrette. I really like the way the bangs flatter your face and the eye makeup looks awesome as well! Good job! 🙂

I really like your first look and I LOVE the hot pink lips. A lot of women would die to be able to pull off the pink or red lip and I think you kill it!

Its hard to judge the hair from these pics, but the makeup looks 200X better in the 2nd set of pics…love the nude/light pink lip on you…. I really dont like the bright lip color in the first pics

You look great in both, but I do recommend bleaching your teeth before the wedding. That fuschia lip really brings out the yellow in your teeth, unfortunately. I bleach regularly and STILL have issues with yellowness when I wear fuschia lips. :(I hope you don’t find my suggestion hurtful or offensive–I truly am just trying to help! Good luck!

I think the 1st look is definitely the way to go and I don’t think that you need a lighter shade of lipstick at all. You wear that color very well!

Hair from number 1, and makeup from number 2.
