I was getting ready to say I didn’t like it but it looks much better in the second picture!  I’m hoping your wedding is outside or the lighting is better in your venue.

I like it a lot . . . although I would go a little heavier with the top eyeliner and add some falsies to boot!

The lip color looks a little too pink in the first picture.  I love the eyes though and I agree with the falsies!  They made my eyes look insane!

Yanno, MissAsB is right about the lip, too . . . just a leeeetle too pink. And darlin’, there is no such thing as *overdone*.  Next time, just *Bambi* them already! 😛

Looks great!  Altough I do agree about the lip color.  I think something along the lines of a berry color (just a bit darker / deeper of a pink) would look fantastic.

Haha I know what you mean about the overdone thing.  Afterward, we were walking around the mall!

I second the fake lashes and I also agree that the lipstick is waaayyy too pink. Other than that I think it will be beautiful

i actually like the lipstick color~!! my feedback would be to ask the MUA to blend the eyeshadow a little bit more and a little more concealing undereye with a peachy tone concealer~

Just a word about false lashes: I would make sure the MUA (or another professional) applies individual lashes, instead of the long strip of falsies.  For two reasons:

1) If you’re not accustomed to false, thick lashes, you might be overwhelmed by the look, especially if the rest of your makeup look leans towards natural.  My mom wore them recently and kept saying she felt like she looked like Bert from Sesame Street, lol!

2) The strips can be really uncomfortable!  I wore them to an event once and I felt like each eye had a dark veil over it.  Then one strip started to peel off- yikes!  And those were applied by the makeup artist!

With the individual lashes (they aren’t one lash at a time, but rather little bundles of 3 or 4), you’re more in control of the thickness, so it still looks natural.  Perfect for close-up photos.

Whatever you choose, do a trial run for sure!

Congrats!

I love the eyes and I agree you should get the lashes, they will show up better in longer range shots.  I also agree you might go for different shades on the cheeks and lips, I think they might be a bit too pink for your skin and compete with your eyes.  I would go a bit more natural for the lips and the cheeks and let the eyes be the focus, I always see the pros on tv say to pick the eyes or the lips.  Good luck, you will be stunning.
