Willow90:  Have you asked him why he hated it? He’s used to seeing you in day-to-day makeup, maybe not a more dramatic smoky eye? You can adjust your makeup just a bit so it’s closer to what you wear naturally, just a little more… pop?

I agree w/ folks about making the eye just a bit more neutral and a little more blush but the foundation/overall look is gorgeous.

I have to agree with everyone in that your makeup looks amazing!!! I also had the same problem in that Fiance pretty much hated it when I came home after the trial but it’s because he’s not used to seeing me in makeup and doesn’t like makeup and it also looks completely different in normal everyday clothes. With a big dress and flowers and the whole scene of a wedding, the makeup will look perfect and he will understand. Even I thought mine was a bit too much but then I put a white sheet around me to get an idea of what it would look like with at least a white dress and it comletely changed the look. You need professional makeup so that you match the surroundings and you will both love it on the day! Be confident!!

if you really want to you can tone down the eyes a bit, however that being said, I find that when it comes to the day of, photos can wash you out (so what looks like a lot now, will be just perfect on the day). All I would suggest is bolder lashes and a bit more blush/slight conturing. And for sure keep your MUA! It’s one less thing you have to worry about, and you can let her know what you want to change and you two can go from there.

ETA: Also, you look gorgeous =)

Your makeup is flawless, especially if natural is the look you are going for.

I love the look but you have to remember too that you will need it darker if you are having professional pictures or having any taken outside. I would definitely ask for a darker blush and slightly darker lip color. This is where engagement photos and/or bridal portraits really give you a good vibe if you use the same MUA.

I know I thought mine was really dark and I felt really uncomfortable about it but now that I have pics back, I look really washed out and pale.

I love the lip color. The eye makeup may be a bit too heavy. The foundation and contouring is nice, but the nose looks too pastel-texture, like they airbrushed it too much? Otherwise it is really nice. How will you do your hair?
