your eyes look amazing!  I’d blend the shadow a bit more so you don’t see that line under the eyebrows.

Your eyes pop beautifully!Love the lip color! The only thing I’m having a hard time seeing is the blush but could just be the pic…. I’d just say a lil darker on the blush!

I’m going to be honest.  You are naturally beautiful (you have great blue eyes and a really fresh look!), but I do not think that this make-up artist has created the best look for you.

I should note that I, personally, am not a licensed or professionally trained make-up artist, but one of my best male friends is, and he has done both hair and make up for numerous film and television actors and actresses as well as an even larger number of models for fashion layouts for regional publications and department store catalogs. He did my hair and make up for my engagement portrait and my wedding, and I have tried to learn a lot from him over the years.

I do not particularly like the way this specific artist did your eyes or your lips. I think that the way he or she did your eyes makes your big, beautiful eyes look too closed in and makes them appear smaller.  I also think that your lips look a little too feathery.  For your eyes, I would like to see a different color (one that still makes the blue of your eyes pop but one that goes better with your skin tone), and less overall color with more contouring to show the natural dimension your eyes have. I do like the color family that the artist used for your lips; however, they look to be a bit too “smudged” to me.  I think I would prefer just a slightly paler, yet more defined lip in a similar color.

I think your “right after the trial” pic looks the worst. I think your face looks like it has too much powder on it, and I wasn’t crazy about either your eyes or lips….

BUT, it looks amazing in the rest of the shots! So my question is, what kind of lighting can you expect on your wedding day?

It looks a bit too much for me. If everything were just toned down a bit, I think it’d be much nicer. Just not as thick.

@sarahbabs:  I think your skin and blusher looks gorgeous. Your skin really pings for me so he/she’s done a good job there.

I agree with Brielle that you have beautiful eyes but that this MUA has not made the most of that. I feel like it maybe needs a tiny bit of liner towards the outer edge of each eye just to bring them apart a little.

Are you wearing false lashes?
