    What does your Fiance think? It’s about what makes you two happy.. he may like the “glam” look.. I however would recommend to tone it down just a bit. You still want to look like the “you” he fell in love with.

    I wear my eye makeup almost exactly like that everyday so I personally love it for a wedding. I went even more dramatic than that for my wedding since that’s my usual…

    It really depends.  For a daytime wedding this is definitely too much makeup.  For an evening wedding, I think it would look fine. I would change it to using a shimmery peach eyeliner on your waterline, and then black eyeline smuged along your top and bottom lash line.  This will make your eyes look open, and take away a little of the severity of the eyeliner look.

    Mine was really similar to this. I think it depends on your hair/skin color. I always do my make up like that.

    i’m just not a fan of the cut crease in eyeshadow. it reminds me of drag queens.

    It looks a little too Jersey Shore-ish to me.  I really dislike the no color on the cheeks and lips and I feel like that would probably look really terrible in wedding photos.

    The super nude lip, monotone face, and heavy bottom eye-liner is too harsh a look for a wedding IMO, I also think its too harsh a look and too unbalanced to be flattering on anyone. Your lips shouldn’t be indistinguishable from your skin.

    Too much eyeliner for my taste. I’m more into natural looks though. If you wear more make-up on a daily basis, it would probably be alright.

    Maybe try that look for your bachlorette party if you’re having one?

    Sorry but it looks a little too drag queen-ish for me, and I think that lip color would be very unflattering in photographs.

    way too much eyeliner. I’m going to echo the other ladies and say this is more of a “going out with the girls for a night on the town” look than a wedding look. Also, the lipstick needs to have more color to it, it just will drown you out in photos.

    Agree with PP. Not elegant enough to a wedding, though it could work for a bachelorette party.

    I would stick with a softer look for the wedding, in more bronze/brown colors. You want to look like a better version of yourself, so just shoot to use makeup to enhance your natural features.
