You look absolutely stunning in the two pictures where you’re wearing a dark shirt, so I recommend going with a more natural lip color. I think you could wear your hair either way. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey there! So it seems like I’m the outlier here but I LOVE the red lip, dramatic eyes, and big brows. Maybe because that’s my usual makeup look? I wouldnt change a thing. If you love red lipstick, wear it. Yes, it will get messy, so try Lip Ink. Expensive but I recommend it to everyone because you can actually kiss your Fiance and not get lipstick all over him. It also won’t transfer to your dress. I work in a bridal shop and wear red Lip Ink every day and can’t get lipstick on our white dresses! Lip Ink does. Not. Budge. 

And no, I don’t work for them or get discounts. I just love their products.


But really, I love the red lipstick on you. You look beautiful. When I was really little I saw a pic of a bride’s red nails in her photo album. She wore red nails and red lipstick. For some reason that stuck with me. It’s such a small thing, but you don’t have to look like au natural cherub with rosy cheeks, curly hair, and glossy pink lips on your wedding day. Dare to be different! Wear the red lips! And stop worrying about your nose! I have a similar one and have learned to love it. It adds some distinction to your profile and I think it helps you pull off a more alternative look, a la dramatic eyes and lips ๐Ÿ™‚

Since red is your thing, you might miss it in your wedding photos. I kind of agree you could tone down the shadow with less dark color in the crease… but its perfect for a glam dress and sophisticated venue.

Love your eyes, they look perfect!! I’d steer away from the red lip, and go with something lighter. And I like your hair up better!!

I love all of it minus the red lip. I would do a natural plus liner with gloss. You look gorgeous! ๐Ÿ™‚

LOVE the eyes with the nuetral coloured lip. It balances the look out completely. You are stunning with hair up or down.

LOVE the eyes so much more than your first trial. The friend did a great job. I don’t care for the red lips with the eyes though…it competes and I think your focal point should be your eyes which are beautiful. I agree that a more neutral although not necessarily nude lip would be much better.

Definitely go softer pink on the lip color.  Very flattering. I think hair down is softer in your case.  I would prefer eyeliner that is more blended as opposed to a distinct line, and individual lashes.

I think it depends on what you want – with the red lipstick the look is more vampy and without it’s more romantic and soft. I think you could do an updo but one with plenty of soft cascading bits on both sides.

Your eye brows are gorgeous so don’t worry about that! Eyeshadow looks perfect! Someone said it was too dark and I don’t agree. Looks just fine and photographs great. I’d go for a more subtle berry shade instead of red.


id also go for a more voluminous and loose updo (if youre comfortable with wearing extensions) I think that’d look amazing!

First of all, you have a beautiful nose and great eyebrows, don’t feel so insecure about this. ๐Ÿ™‚

now to the make up, even though I don’t understand much about it: the eyes are perfect in my opinion and I would choose a softer lip colour.

I am alllll about red lipstick, I wear it all the time.  I think I own lipstick in every shade of red lol.   HOWEVER, in this case I actually think you look better without the red lipstick. I would do something similiar to your natural lip color, maybe a bit darker. Your eyes and brows look fantastic though. 

I also prefer your hair down, but I think that may change once it’s actually styled and not just thrown in the bun. I don’t think it makes you look unattractive at all, my preference is just hair down

megrays :  Eyes are STUNNING! I would go for a paler lip. Something closer to a pale pick, more natural. You look SO MUCH YOUNGER without the lips! I would do hair up, but I always do my hair up!! I just think it looks a lot more put together than down.
