1) I think it looks beautiful. I would ask the MUA not to carry the highlight all the way down to the tip of your nose, to keep it only on the bridge. The ombré lip color is gorgeous on you, perhaps it faded on the edges  before you took the actual pics, but Mac usually has lip liners to match their colors, so using it underneath the lacquer may help it last longer.

2) Another cool “trick” is to use a single ply of tissue to cover the entire lip, don’t pout, but smile a little and dust translucent powder all over the lip out to the edges. This can be repeated several times to get truly kiss proof lips. This works for lipstick and pencils, not familiar with the “lacquer” formula though.

3) Your cheekbones are stunning and I don’t think they need as much blush to make them pop as the rest of us do. Your lip and eye looks are fairly dramatic, so I think she could use a lighter hand with the blush.

You’d still be a knock out if you didn’t change a single thing. It’s a beautiful makeup job.

SlyVixen:  she’s talented and you look great!

after seeing your dress, I am pushing for a softer lip color. Berry or even a light soft beige pink like mac angel. Something you can reapply and that won’t get cakey throughout the day. I’m a prof MUA who specializes in on camera make up, and you are better off maintaining control of make up than dealing with something you can’t blend or fix in a hurry. (I deal in on camera risk assessment lol) 

I would also do a bit more smudging on lower liner, a softer line is better, and take a q tip to it after that because lower liner can make the under eye area look dark esp on video that isn’t in a studio /prof situation with soft lights.  I’d also lose the highlight in the nose all together, just do contouring on sides.

 all of that said, these are minor things, she’s very talented and you are in good hands!

Looks awesome! The contouring is noticeable, but barely which is what you want. PS did she try to cover up your beatuy mark? I say accent it!

Think the contouring is way too harsh… I would ask to smoothe it out a little, especially less highlight on your nose as it turned out very shiny. The rest is pretty. Your lips looks amazing!

holy guac, I don’t think people are 100% in the know when it comes to lipstick application. If you taper off the edges it accounts for different lip shapes. Some people if you go all the way to the corner look hideous. It’s all in making your lips look as though they are the correct shape when your mouth is closed. Red is an unforgiving colour when it comes to application and she did a FANTASTIC job, it’s very easy to come away looking like the joker. I love that colour, you are going to rock it!
