The make up is nice! But the hair looks messy IMO.

Can you post a picture that’s not filtered of your makeup?

I like the makeup, but I don’t love the hair. It simultaneously looks too messy and too neat at the same time.

Are you going for something more like this:

http://www.joseebernj.com/Portals/0/half%20up2.jpg (neat, defined curls, very in place/no wispies)

Depending on which style you were going for, I’d adjust the hair. The curls are kind of messy but still defined. The braids are very proper and defined. The top is not great for either look.

It also looks like you have wispies in the front temples, as do I. They are difficult to work with! If this is the case, I’d look at having more face wispies down (can be defined or relaxed).

And overall, you are so pretty! Perfect skin, I’m so jealous.

I think your hair looks great, perfect balance of defined curls while still having a romantic feel.

ImTheBoss:  Your weight? Girl, you are BEAUTIFUL! I wouldnt hesitate to put your hair up! (actaully updos make me look thinner, if anything). The makeup is gorgeous, and I agree, I like the second lip color better. I would probably gravitate to an updo, just because your dress has a lot of volume! If you dont want to “hide” your hair, you can do a side do… but I think you should do you hair how YOU want, not how other think you should! what will make you feel MOST beautiful?

ImTheBoss:  I really like your hair. The braids add a nice whimsical touch. I might try a smoothing serum to help tame the fly aways, particulary those surrounding your face. It helps seal the cuticle, and gives a soft/shiny appearance to the hair.

As for the makeup, it’s lovely. For some reason the first picture looks like you have a bolder eyeliner, but it isn’t as noticeable in the second pic. I think you could totally pull it off with your natural eye shape. I might try a different shade of pink…more pale pink (Mac Viva Glam?). Especially, since you’re rocking a bit of a soft smoky eye.

I think your makeup looks beautiful, but I hear you about your hair not being able to hold a curl and going flat quickly.

Have you thought about a curly side ponytail? Would allow you to show off your long hair but it keep it a little more contained: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/361554676308451474/

ImTheBoss:  i like the makeup and the hair except for the braid – it looks like it shouldn’t be there. I think if the braid was all around your head it would look better – something like below

I like it, though I agree with PP that I’d prefer the braid to go over rather than tuck under that bit of hair there.

ImTheBoss:  Awe crap, I’m so sorry to hear that hun! I absolutely understand, I’ve just gained about 45lbs over the last 2 years and I am really struggling with it. But your dress is so flattering, it makes you waist look so tiny! I hope you do take your Fiance up on a second trial, you’ll find something you love 🙂
