I like your big eyebrows.

I dislike the red lipstick in the first two pictures, it ages you but that could be the weird lighting. I do like your hair up, you look very pretty and not at all like a witch.

But witches are effing awesome anyway!

I love the eye makeup but don’t like the red lipstick. Do you not have anything on your lips in the other picture or is there color left over from wiping away the red? Either way I think the pinkish color on your lip looks much nicer. As far as your hair goes, I’m not a fan of the updo.

You look great! I will say though, I kind of prefer the overall look before you put the lipstick on – I think with the eyes being so dramatic, the red is almost too much and a more neutral colour or even a light berry shade/stain might work!

I don’t think wearing your hair up is unattractive, but perhaps a looser updo will ‘soften’ the look?

And your brows are amazing. I would kill for brows like yours, so stop being so critical of yourself! You’re a babe!

I guess it depends on preference… I think they over did it on the eyebrows and that the eye makeup is too dark over the majority of the lid. I think I would go with a different color lip color then red…

But at the end of the day, it’s what makes you feel pretty and confident! In the end, that’s what will help make you glow! Congratulations, bee!

I think both options look lovely! The first two pics you posted aren’t in great lighting, though. 

Do you normally wear lipstick? If so, what shades? Also, how do you normally do your hair and what’s the neckline of the dress?

megrays :  muuuch better! You’re gorgeous, stop with the nose thing:-) please try a nudish pink just for me. Mac angel (not frost). Give it a whirl. The red is pretty but not with heavy eye makeup. 

With your dress, hair up would be perfect, but it looks good either way.

slomotion :  I totally agree. Either eyes OR lips should be bold. I love your eye makeup so just do a pale pink or nude lip. A bit of gloss is youthful too.

I like your hair up! Are you wearing a veil or anything?

I love the second look, with natural lips or a pink shade. Could you do both in terms of hair, put it up with a veil for the ceremony, then ditch the updo and veil for the reception. Best of both worlds. Much better than the first trial for sure, you look fantastic.

I think I’ve told you this before but you look like the babeliest of all 90s babes, Amy Jo Johnson aka the Pink Ranger.

Love everything but the red lip! I prefer the look before you had the lipstick on, maybe you could find a lip color that is a few shades darker than your natural color? I really like tarte’s tartiest lip paint. They have a matte and cream version. The color rose is my personal fav but they have basically every version of an almost nude lip.

Your hair looks gorgeous up but down is nice as well. I think a classic updo with some of your bangs down would be beautiful or perhaps you could do half up half down?

This makeup is much better than last time! Not a fan of the red lip (I’d go more neutral since your eyes are so bold), but I love love love the eyes!!! Also, I’m insanely jealous of your eyebrows- just so you know lol 🙂  You could do up if you wanted, but more of a loose updo where the hair isn’t pulled as tightly on each side of your head and it would be a little softer. Otherwise, just do what makes you feel prettiest, not your mom or anyone else. You’re the one who will want to feel the most confident and beautiful on your wedding day!
