I love the bright & dewy look she made for your complexion.  I really like the highlights.


To be totally honest, I don’t think your makeup artist did your eyebrows justice.  I think she could have made a much more polished and definite shape with them.  You have gorgeous eyes and they aren’t framed as well as they could be.


I am also personally not a fan of pink lipstick, particularly on fair skin.  I think a more brown/red color would pop better (ex: look up the color “strength” by MAC.  It has a similar frosty finish but in a better shade)

I think it’s looks fresh and pretty, but I would suggest the following to enhance:

  • False lashes (or more mascara) if you’re not already wearing them. If you are, I would try a different type of lash because I feel like your lashes are kind of lost and weighing your eyes down currently.
  • Shaping and filling in brows more evenly and with more defintion (I would try a less rounded shape than you currently have and more of a soft arch).
  • A softer eyeliner on your top lash line, and more definition along the bottom lash line to balance.

I think your skin looks great and I like the lipstick too, but maybe add a tad more blush. It’s also hard to tell what the eye makeup looks like from your photo, but I would maybe add some more depth in your crease to open up your eyes more.

Overall you look great! These are some tweaks I would personally make:

-Sharper, more defined eyebrows. They look very blurred right now for lack of a better word

-I’m not a fan of the brown eyeliner in your waterline. I’d go for a nude brightening pencil in the waterline 

-your lower lash eyeshadow lacks definition. It’s just one brown color. Your MUA should add a darker color close to the lashes and smoke it out a bit more. Looks rather amateur right now for a professional

-darker lip color

-add false lashes


-it seems like there’s no eyeshadow in your crease… there needs to be more depth. You have hooded eyes and a lot of people aren’t very good at working with such an eye shape and I feel like this makeup artist is one of them unfortunately. The eyeshadow isn’t bad per say but it does nothing for you IMO. Your brow bone isn’t highlighted either 


ETA: looking back I feel like I critiqued nearly everything haha. You’re super pretty naturally, don’t get me wrong! I’m not critiquing you, just the makeup! I just feel like when you’re hiring a professional, your makeup should enhance all you’re features. The MUA did a great job with the base. But I just feel like everything else could use a little oomph:) this look IMO you could easily achieve at home with some practice. Besides the glowy base, I don’t see what’s worth paying someone to achieve this look unless you’re super unconfidrnt with makeup

You look great! I think fake lashes would make everything come together!

You look great but it isn’t wow. It looks like the type of makeup you can do yourself.  Your makeup artist should shape your eyebrows (you have lovely eyes), false eyelashes would really give that pop. If you can afford individuals, you will feel as if you dont have anything on and you can even swim in them. Your lips are okay but I feel a ‘stronger’ color would make your skin stand out more against the shade. I like how healthy and glowy your skin looks.

It’s a great start!! I agree your eyebrows need a little more definition. I’d add more blush. And a bit darker of a lip color. Otherwise, you look so pretty!

You’re gorgeous. The make up doesn’t look professionally done, but it’s certainly a decent job. 

I like the lip color, really don’t like muddy colors on brides unless it’s theme oriented. Specially like that color with your eye color, might use a slight bit of gloss for a dewy look over it, in center of upper and lower lip.

Good feedback re eyebrows from PP. 

my biggest issue is the eyes and the skin prep. You have perfect skin, so it should and could look like an advertisement. I like that it’s not cakey, but it could use moisture and a bit more coverage on the nose for redness.

The eye makeup isn’t bad but it does nothing for your eyes, and they’re great. 

The eyelashes need to be curled, you need softer liner – lay a base of shadow first, then liner, then shadow again, then smudge and wipe to make sure it’s clean, soft, and pretty. Do you only have shadow on the lower lid? You have great almond eyes, I’d do them like Angelina Jolie’s, with a small strip of fake eyelashes in outer corner to accentuate, but in a natural way, the gorgeous elegant shape.


notice she has same color lipstick as you used
