If it were me, I would add a bit more blush and tone down the shade of the lipstick.

I like the way the eyeshadow makes your eyes pop.

I think everything looks good. I like how the smoky eye look is not over powering but still noticeable. My hair doesn’t hold curl at all either so I feel your pain. I’m sure you will look even better on the day of when you are glowing with happiness.

Honestly, I would try to find a different tiara and necklace. They just don’t really match the dress and look sort of cheap.

The makeup looks good, but maybe consider a lighter lipstick color and filling in your eyebrows a bit too.

In general it looks good, I really hope this doesn’t come across as critical, gonna just call it as I see it! I love playing with makeup and do so often, but still wouldn’t do my own, so kudos to you on that!

Your hair is cute and I get that the fineness would prevent curls, but how about a fringe? It just seems a bit plain, though it is neat. Maybe thats’s not your style, so ignore that if you like. The style you have is nice for a tiara. I would say the tiara that you have doesn’t match the necklace. I would probably replace the necklace though for something a bit simpler.

The make up. Perhaps you could get your eyebrows tidied as it would pull together and neaten the look. As someone said filling them in with a powder would be a good idea too. The smoky look is nice, BUT the eyeshadow has travelled, and looks a bit patchy in places. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but I would day to invest in a brush to help you apply eyeshadow evenly and neatly.

I always apply base after I do my eyes as otherwise you end up with dark eyeshadow under your eyes, which may of happened here. I would also say, tone down the lipstick colour to a more neutral lip and up the blush a tad. Also add a tiny bit more liner to help cover up the gaps between the lashes. Trick to smokey eye is to blend, should be a mix of a few (min 2) shades of eyeshadow to kepp it from looking flat. Primer may help to keep things in place.

Also eyeshadow first, then lashes, then liner is how I usually do it, if that helps.

Good luck!
