    Love the hair, the make up is good, except the eyes. Not really sure what I would suggest doing differently, but I don’t think it’s too dark. Sorry, I wasn’t much help.

    I love the makeup-Id actually do more shimmery bronze on your lids and cheeks…and don’t do any shadow under the eye..and some hilighter on your cheekbones and tearduct

    @Amberrw:  I love your hair, very pretty! Great eyebrows too, love the shape! I think some eyeshadow in the violet color family would compliment you. I don’t think the eye liner is too dark but I can barely tell you have mascara on your top lashes. If you want to keep things more on the natural side, I’d at least opt for a darker shade of lipstick. Maybe a mauve shade of lipstick would be nice.

    Looks great. If anything, I’d add a bit more blush.

    On the top, I would apply another coat of mascara.

    On the bottom, I would omit the dark liner, and use a thin liner brush to line under your lashes with the dark eyeshadow. Now, he shadow is too thick, and the dark liner on your waterline isn’t doing it for me, especially with a natural styled brow (which is fabulous, by the way!)

    I love the hair and the rest of the makeup, very natural-but-done look, which seems to fit you πŸ™‚

    I think it all looks nice, but AI would personally just add a little more mascara..

    I think your hair looks fabulous, great job! I found that makeup tends to not show up as much in pictures as we think it does. For my graduation pictures I wiped off a bunch of light brown eye shadow thinking I put too much on, but actually it hardly showed up. As PP  said, I think a nice pastel lavender or even a shimmery light gold colorwould look great with  your eyes. 

    Maybe try taking some pics in the same lighting the actual pics will be in to see how the look translates on camera. Good luck πŸ™‚

    If you are doing natural I would use a bit of bronze on your lids line your lashes with an eyeliner pencil, some blush, mascara.  I would go bold with the lips how about red.

    I would omit the makeup on the lower eyelid, maybe just doing a little clear mascara on the lower lashes if you really wanted something? I think the overall look is good, and just getting rid of the lower lid eyeliner/mascara will lighten things up and make the whole thing look a little more natural.
