It’s beautiful–you’re beautiful! I would try the falsies, if you can get them to work well, just to get that extra pop on your eyes for your big day. Ardel makes a strip lash set called demi something, I love them. Just make sure you use Duo lash adhesive–the other stuff is too hard to get off and Duo is awesome at holding, dries clear, is flexible and is all MAC uses. Also, are you wearing a lip liner? I would use a light one, like Whirl by Mac, with the gloss. It will help hold your gloss longer, and give you a nice, full lip without looking too “liner-y.” The color of the lip gloss and blush is perfection btw πŸ™‚

I think it looks beautiful! Did you happen to take a picture looking down so we could see how the eyeshadows look?

By The Way, I’m suuuuupah jealous of your eyelashes.

You look stunning!!  Also I’m so jealous that you can do makeup so well!  I can hardly put eyeliner on, so I’ll definitely have to call in the pros. I love this makeup trial!  Looks perfect.

Holy crap, you look awesome! You have such gorgeous eyes! I think falsies would give you a bit more pop if you can get them to cooperate, but damn you look beautiful!

@AmeliaBedelia:  Ugh! Isn’t that always how it goes?? Men get the best lashes! My Fiance has like perfectly curled lashes 24/7 and I wanna punch him. Haha. I told him when he dies I’m taking his lashes. Hah! I kid.

Annnnyway, back to the point of your post. The makeup is beautifulness! And I know everyone is saying falsies, but I don’t think you need them. I have a book by Bobbi Brown and it has a section on bridal makeup and it says not to wear false eyelashes on your wedding day unless you’re 100% sure how to apply them and 200% sure they’ll stay on. Not saying you’re not capable of applying them, but you seem super hesitant about it, and I completely understand. I hate wrestling (I totally almost typed “wrastling” right there) with false lashes.

It looks great! I agree that falsies are a really fun way for a little “pop.” I also liked the brighter lipstick a bit better. But, perhaps a good lipliner would help define them a bit more. 

You have really great features!

You’re so beautiful and this makeup is perfect! Some PPs are suggesting false eyelashes but I think you don’t need them — your lashes are long and gorgeous as is. If you DID do falsies, go with a few individual splays placed only at the outer corners. Full strips can look a bit too theatrical.

I also agree with @eryepye: that you might want to try a soft lipliner just so you won’t have to touch up your lips too often througout the day. Completely fill in your lips with it, like  you would with a lipstick, rather than just doing an outline of your lips. Then top with your gloss for long-lasting lip color. πŸ™‚

Looks great!!!   your eyelashes are seriously long without falsies (I’m so jealous over here) As far as falsies go, I like to use just the ones CVS/Walgreens sells, but the individidual lashes instead of the strips. I use the medium ones and then just hold the lash (base side up) with a tweezer, apply a pindrop of glue to the tip then apply to my lash and hold it there for about 10 seconds. This would look really cool for you especially just at the outer edge of your eye. I think this would add that “pop” you’re looking.  I used this brand on my wedding day and thought it turned out great. I’ve got pics if you want to see. Good Luck!!
