What about some fake lashes to give your eyes more oomph?

And maybe a light blush tone for the cheeks.

You could go to a makeup counter at sephora and have them teach you how to do a natural look with dramatic eyes or something like that and then purchase one or two items from them.

Much cheaper than hiring a makeup artists and they’ll teach you how to do it so you can hopefully recreate it on your wedding day.

Can I just say that your skin is phenomenal?  It looks absolutely flawless in your e-pic.  If you hadn’t said that is your “everyday” makeup look then I would have assumed you had airbrush makeup done.

Maybe an eyebrow pencil to shade them in a little more?  And I agree with KatNYC2011, even though you said you are against false eyelashes they really do look nice to make your eyes *pop*.  Get the individual ones and just add a few to the corners of your eyes.  Also yes to the blush. 

One way to make your eyes appear bigger is to line them with Pixi Eye Bright Liner (sold at Target).  I remember reading that a liner like this is the way K.Kardashian makes her eyes look so big and doey.

I’ve heard that mineral makeup can be bad for flash photography.  I would go into Sephora and have them maybe give some suggestions for eyes and cheeks.  I would play up the eyes a little more, and maybe bronzer for cheeks if you don’t want to look rosy?  And I agree with a PP – you have fantastic skin!

Definitely get some blush. Nothing crazy. I didn’t used to wear blush, but you’d be surprised the difference it makes to have a subtle color there.

I use the Urban Decay Primer Potion to keep my eyeshadow from creasing. It’s a great buy. The ladies at Sephora turned me on to it!

Also, my friend did my makeup for my wedding and filled in my eyebrows. It really draws attention to your eyes and looks amazing. She actually used a trick of taking an eyeshadow that matched close to my haircolor and mixed it with a bit of hair wax! You can buy pencils and powders for that, too. Definitely cheaper using an eyeshadow though!

@Genuine513: Just so you know, fake lashes don’t have to look “fake”. I had them for my wedding and I don’t think I look like I’m wearing fake lashes:

When you say “primer” do you mean an eye shadow primer? Benefit makes a primer that is so good, I swear I can go to bed fully made up and wake up looking the exact same.

I had never worn false lashes until my makeup trial…they are fabulous if you use natural length ones and incorporate them into your natural lashes invdividually.  I wouldn’t use they strip ones if you want a natural feel.  Remember many of your photos will be from a farther distance than the one you shared with us here (great skin by the way!) so your eyes will have that “pop” from afar!

Also as others said a little blush too!

Definitely get a neutral eyeshadow to wear, it will make your eyes look nice. I agree with using some sort of cheek color- you will look washed out without it. It sounds like you have the basics down- just add those two and you’ll be ready to go.

@Genuine513: I would love to have your skin! Do you apply the apple cider vinegar topically?  Or drink it?
