You are a VERY pretty girl :) In all honesty I think the makeup looks nice and your skin/base is just flawless but I personally think that you need to ask her to blend your shadow out a little more. If she’s trying to contour your eyelid a little, I think she needs to use a little less of the shadow or be more precise with it. You have amazing eyelids/arch and I really think a slightly better shading could make your eyes look even more incredible :)

I agree with the others I think your makeup looks really good and you have flawless skin, but in the first picture the eyeshadow stands out a little too much, it could probably have been blended a little better but overall it looks great!!

Your So Beautiful and Have Such  Pretty Feautures…. And I Think The Girl Did An Okay Job I Dont Think She Enhanced Your Beauty And Made It Look To Its Full Potenial….But Your Are Right Your Bridal Makeup Is going To Look Slight Different Than Your Everyday Makeup…Im NotSure What Products she used Or What Type Of Look You Were Going For But I Think Like The other Bee’s She Didnt Blend Well At All She Went A Little Too Heavy On The corners…There A Way To Give A Little Smokey Corner Edge without Making It Look Like Its Bleeding Out…And The Eyeliner is a Little To Heavy You Have Such Beautiful Eyes And I Think With Her Putting On Just A Little Too Much Eyer Liner On Top And Bottom Made Yout Eyes Look A Little To Small And Closed in. I Saw That You Live In Californa If You Lived In Jersey I Would Have  Done A Makeup Trial On you That Would Have Left You Speechless Im Not A Mkeup Artist But Ive Been Doing It Since 14  It a Passion Of Mine And Something I Dedicate Myself Too When I Do Mine Or Someones Makeup….Actually My Bridesmaids Dont Think I Should Hire Someone To Do My Makeup Or Theirs For The Wedding, They Think I Should Do Everyones Myself…But They Girl Im Hiring I Have Complete Faith In And She Is A MAC Professional Ive Know Her For A While And she Is My Guru She Has Taught Me So May Things. And I think That My Nerves Would Be So On Edge That Day That I Dont think I Would Be Able To Do Anyones Anything. LOL……But Your Such A Beauty I think You Should Tell That Girl To Try Again That You Werent Loving It Or Try Someone Else Hope This Helps Any,

I agree with PPs that the shadow should be blended better – and I also think your eyebrows look too dark/harsh. Otherwise I think it looks really nice!

you are so pretty! I like the colour choices, but her technique is WAY OFF. The conturing is in the wrong area and the colours are not blended. To be honest after 3 trials i would be looking for a new artist. Do you have pics of your other trials so we can compare?

i can’t wait to see your next pictures! ask her if she can use the 1/2 lenth eye lashes…they are just half the size, and just fit on the outside of your lid as opposed to going across your whole eye. i do wedding make up and i always use the half ones. it gives the same dramatic effect, without looking all tammy faye!

I like the colour, but the technique isn’t there. i also think you need your eyebrows shaped properly for it to be perfect.

You are SO gorgeous that you could probably use less eye make-up to enhance your natural beauty. LOVE the lips!!! (In fact, I am very envious of your lips…gah!)

Like most people I agree, you are a beautiful woman with great feature. My only critisism is that under the brow is to dark. I love the colors but needs to lightend up. I’m not sure what you did in the second pic but it does look better. The upper portion is too dark and goes in to far. It should only be on the outer part under your eyebrow. But is a great stepping stone. Maybe alittle more highlights on cheekbones aswel. Good Luck!!

Oh sweetiepie!!!! You have such beautiful features and your “artist” doesn’t have a clue how to enhance them or even highlight them. I’m a freelance makeup artist and I’ve done A LOT of weddings especially so I do know what I am talking about. Let me give you some tips. First of all, you have smaller eyes, and in order to make them look their biggest, and to really open them up: Rule number 1 NEVER line the inside rim of your lower lash EVER. This actually makes your eyes appear smaller. Instead, line the inside rim with a white pencil only, this will capture the and whites of your eyes and brighten them, thus making your eyes appear larger. Line the top of your eye lid with either a dark brown, black/brown or soft black eyeliner of your choice. Line the whole length of your upper eye lid and extend out at the corner just a bit and smudge to soften the outter corner line. Rule number 2, when lining your lower eye lid, draw under the lower lash line not above it. Again you are creating the illusion of space between your lower lid and your top lid. Rule number 3, you have beautiful green eyes, do not be afraid to play up your colour. A beautiful light sage green on your lid would make those puppies pop! Your mid tone should only be one or two shades darker in the same green family and should not be frosted or shimmery, you can use a soft peachy matte taupe to add depth to blend into and just slighly above your crease and into the outter bridge of your nose where your eyes connect, to bring them closer to bring them closer together as you have wide set eyes. All we are doing is creating balance and symmetry :) Your contour shade can be up to 4 shades darker than your midtone… depending on the look you are going for. Dramatic is ususally up to 4-5 shades darker and usually is a contrast colour, Natural is 1-2 shades darker in the same colour family or with complimentary colours, and Glamorous is 2-3 shades darker also in the same colour family, or only 2 shades darker with complimentary colours. Which ever look you decide, use the colour only in the outter crease of your eye that connects to your upper outter eye lash line and looks like a sideways V blend into the line only 1/4 way, and blend out and slightly up to “Open” the eye,  and blend into your lower lash line but do not connect them, don’t make the V, just lightly blend on the lower lash at the outter corner again only 1/4 of the way. Your hightlight colour would be a soft light ivory no shimmer and no glitter and no frost. Hightlight under the arch of your brow and slightly out toward the end of your brow. Use the same highlight shadow to apply in the corners of your eyes, just up past the tear duct, and just below. This will brighten your face, widen your eyes and together with the highlight of your brow will beautifully frame your face. Rule number 3: Never, EVER EVER apply fake lashes the whole length of your eye, especially into the inner corners. They look fake and are very uncomfortable not to mention, your tear ducts are more sensitive and irritated and cause watery eyes more than normal which you then run the risk of losing a few lashes and some major embarassment. You don’t want that. You also don’t want to look uncomfortable or be worrying about them. If you must have a “full” set of lashes, cut a normal pair in half, curl your own lashes, determine how long your natural ones are, and cut the shortest side of the fake lash to just a few hairs longer than your natural. Before you glue them on, place them on your lash line to see what they will look like. if they are much too long, then cut again. Until you find the perfect length. Put on waterproof mascara on your own lashes, then after your  mascara is dried put on with tweezers or your fingers which ever is more comfortable, the lashes with clear glue and slightly press into your lash line. Not on the skin. Get them as close to your lash line as possible. When they are on, use a waterproof liquid eyeliner in the colour that you already have, and retrace over the lash line to hide any glue. Rule number 4. Use a peachy gold cheek colour on the apples of your cheeks, and an apricot brown (it’s light not dark) to contour your cheek bones from under the apples (make a kissy pout to see where yours is) and blend up into your temples and slightly up into the hairline past your eyebrows. Don’t forget the contours of your jaw line. Just at the line…but make sure there is no line. Blend Blend Blend.  Use a soft light golden almost transluscent powder to dust down the bridge of the nose, on the chin and on the highest part of your cheek bone paralelle to your eyes, and just a dust of it on the forehead. This will give you a GLOW. :D Rule number 5: A light lip will disappear in photos and make you look pale. Line your lips with a nude colour liner just a shade darker than your natural lip colour and lightly fill in the rest of your lips, not just line. This will allow your colour stay on longer and you wont get the lined lip look. Next use a peachy golden slighly pinkish gloss on your lips. The peach and pink will add to your colour, and the gold will bring out the shape of your lips better in photographs. Oh yes and RULE NUMBER 6, before you ever hire anyone to do anything to your face, especially for your wedding, first ask to see photos in their portofolio of people they have done before, ask them what they see working for you in terms of your face shape, eye shape, skin tone, etc. If they can’t give you an answer right there, it’s because they don’t know. GOOD LUCK SWEETIE!!!!!
