I am going to post a few pictures of me with make up on. I am a natural redhead with pale skin and freckles. I was told that I need to wear a lot more make up on my wedding day for photos. So, I’m coming here, to all you wonderful ladies, to get some advice of what style make up I should wear. My mom suggested light browns, golds, etc and heavy mascara to make my eyes pop (and I have abnormally long eyelashes). So, if you were me, how would you do your make up? Make up, girly clothes and all of that doesn’t come natural to me. 🙁
In the first picture I have light pinks/browns with mascara and black eyeliner. The second picture I have only black mascara and eyeliner.
Question: Are you doing your makeup or are you having it done.
Bridal makeup is all about a radiant, glowing look, not crazy dramatic makeup. Since you’re a girl that loves a strong eye look, I would do that in a very polished and classic way. I would suggest wearing lashes because even long lashes (I have them, too- yay!) can disappear in pictures.
Here’s a few videos I found on youtube to help you out. (:
I too am a natural redhead with pale skin, freckles, and long eyelashes! I would definitely advise having it done professionally, especially if you aren’t into doing makeup yourself. I know that in my day to day makeup I use lots of coraly, golds, and browns to really make my eyes pop. I am definitely doing fake lashes the day of just to add the dramatic look. If you aren’t sure and want to get ideas how to play around with makeup before your big day, I would suggest heading into your local department store to have them do it, ususally for free. I know estee lauder will do it for free. Best of luck!
Your beautiful, and your eyes are so pretty. Golds/browns would make your eye colour pop like crazy, your mom is right!
You know how there are those girls who actually look better with less makeup because they are naturally pretty? You are one of those girls! Go light on the eyeliner. Try putting eyelner on your bottom water line instead of below lashes or try a gold eyeliner. Highlight inner corners of eyes and brow bone with white shimmer shadow. Peach tones would look great on your fair skin.
@araina126: I’m having it done. But I wanted to have some suggestions for her.
@PrettyinPink45: Sounds like the color scheme is on track! Awesome. 🙂 I didn’t think of fake eyelashes because mine are so long and thick. Will have to look into that.
@raisedonrobbery: Awww, thank you! You are so sweet! Definitely going to check out that link! Ohhh, never thought of doing any other color eyeliner except for black! Thanks so much!
@trycatchblock: Thank you! That is so kind of you! I’ve never tried brown mascara. I think I’ll pick some up and see how it looks. I actually bought a blush kit thing for contouring but I can’t seem to get it to blend properly. Probably just because I don’t understand the concept, lol.
@raisedonrobbery: I agree, definitely lighter on the eyeliner and gold would be so pretty! I know that I have used a bronzey/goldish color before instead of black and the way it shimmers is stunning! It would be so beautiful on the wedding day. I also have to use a liner on my brows because they are so light and it really helps a ton!
