After getting a couple of bad makeup trials, and spending more money than I should have, I’ve decided to do my makeup myself. I didn’t want to miss out on the trial, so I decided to do one myself, at home.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to make your eyes and chin look bigger, and nose look smaller, I’m all ears. 🙂 And, there will be a couple of changes – 1. my foundation will be darker; I’ve been tanning, so it’s a little light on me now, 2. I will have fake eyelashes, and 3. I will hopefully have clearer skin. I invested in a bunch of Origins products today, and am starting a no dairy, minimal sugar and caffeine diet tomorrow.
My hair will be up. So, here’s one more with my hair up (although on my wedding day it’ll be a much fancier hairstyle, of course,) and my makeshift veil from scraps I had laying around:

Looks great! In terms of making your nose look smaller and eyes and chin look bigger…
Nose- contour the sides of your nose with bronzer, it will create the illusion of a smaller nose.
Eyes- brighten them up with some white shadow in the inner corners of your eye. A regular sponge tip applicator works very well for this because they are so precise. Line only the outer part (like 2/3) of your upper and lower lash line rather than all of it so it doesn’t close your eyes in. Also, place a spot of white shadow right in the middle of your eyelid and gently blend in, it helps add to the bright eyed look.
Chin- watch some Youtube videos for contouring techniques for emphasizing bone structure. Use a bronzer with little to no sparkle, and try using a fan brush to do your contouring.
Hope that helps!

@amyb5: thank you!!! I really appreciate the tips. My bridesmaids & I are going to do a final hair and makeup trial at the bachelorette party next weekend, so I’ll try incorporating your suggestions then. I’ll be sure to post some follow up pics. 🙂

if you want to make parts of your features less noticeable, apply shade (aka: contour) with a slightly darker shade for it to recede, and if you want to make something appear larger, blend lighter foundation on the area~ (such as the chin) and apply highlighter or natural powder.

You look great! It also might look nice to use some brow pencil on your brows, to enhance the look:-)

Yep, I think that brow definition is about the only area for improvement! You look great, really pretty.
