(Closed) Makeup trial yesterday – VERY PIC HEAVY – what do you think?

posted 8 years ago in Beauty
  • poll: Your expert advice? :)

    Looks very natural.

    Looks too done-up.

    Use liquid liner instead.

    Less blush!

    Change something else (explain please)

    It's perfect, I love it!

    It's good, but I think you could do better. (please tell me how/why)

    Sorry girl, start over from scratch.

    Not sure if anyone said this already, but I’m sure you’ve been told this before – that you look like Katie Holmes????

    IDK if this has already been suggested, but I think you need to go a bit darker.  It’s going to be too light in the professional photos.  I think the style is beautiful, though – just go a bit darker.  I agree w/ the false lashes recommendations.

    It looks pretty, very natural but I think you could use something more. The false lashes are a good tip. IMO a little more makeup is better for the wedding day especially since it shows up better in the pictures.

    You are so beautiful!! I love the natural look too. But I do agree for wedding pictures you should go just a tad bit heavier on eyes and blush. Add a little gloss on the lips and false lashes.

    Eh I think it needs to be amped up a little. It’s not bad but it’s a whole no makeup makeup look you got going on. You’re a bride, you’re getting married, I think you need a little more oomph!

    First of all, you have amazing eyes! 

    I will be a bit harsh to your MUA: on the first picture of you, the blush goes up to your ear. It should not be that way. I also do not like the way she treated your eyes: all I see is pencil lines (and the lower line should be more smudged, looking more like a shade rather than a thick line). I would use more eye shadows in nude colours to make your eyes pop up. And definitely ‘yes’ to false lashes! If you are afraid of losing your natural look, skip full length lashes and consider individual ones. You won’t feel them on your eyes, they will look natural and open your eyes.

    @gangqinjia:  From what I see on the first picture, the most intensive blushed area is from under outer conrner of your eye up to your ear (almost). Normally the blush should be on your apples when you smile. I judge only by this first pic of you as the blush is barely visible on the others (and I agree with the previous comments, there should be a little bit more colour on your cheeks, CAREFULLY BLENDED). 

    Have a look at this video tutorial, you will see what a great effect individual lashes may give keeping it natural: http://www.lisaeldridge.com/video/1961/individual-fake-eyelashes/

    I would fill in and define the eyebrows more and add some false lashes. Otherwise it looks great.

    Oh and just FYI I have a very round face too, the blush goes under the cheekbone slanted up to your ear. Sine I’m very pale I do  a “3” shape and curve it from temple to eyes then down to the hollow of my cheek.

    You look a lot like the girl in your inspiration pic .. sure it’s not you? 😉

    I love the basics of your makeup, but if I were you, I’d go a little bit more dramtic with the eyes… it’s your wedding, why not ogo all out.
