i love it! the only thing i would change slightly is to carry the upper lash liner a little further into the inner corner of your eye…. it will help the false lashes belnd in better

I love it, I think the shadow is perfectly blended….I do feel the same on the length of the falsies, but if you have larger eyes there really isn’t much that can be done.

You have such gorgeous features and your eye color is insane!  I feel there are a lot of makeup choices that would look great on you and I just want to give you an honest opinion of the current color palette.  As a side note, I do freelance makeup artistry on the side so I am not completely coming out of no where w/ my suggestions (nor do I want to sound like I am picking apart your current artist).  I would say be cautious of the use of one color family throughout your face.  I like the use of the NARS “orgasm” color to highlight your cheek bone, but its still a little too close to the lip and shaddow color.  Also, the cheek color seems very well blended, but it extends too far from eye to cheek. This actually gives you the appearance of a sunburn.

My suggestions to try on your own or with your artist would be… Eyes- the most complimentary shaddow for blue eyes is brown.  I would say use a bone color as a base for the entire lid, a terra cotta kind of color as an accent, a deep coppery chestnut brown in the crease and a sparkle vanilla in the brow and inner corner crease. Do not use frost/white shaddow under the eye.  White or light colors under the eye open the eye up but in some people they can bring out eye wrinkles or make you look older.   Line the upper lid from thin to thick (inner to outter) with an expresso color.  Line the lower lid with a thin line 3/4 of the way across with the same expresso color. Expresso is dark enough to show up great in photos but is not as harsh as black. Face- bronze the cheek and dust with a hint of shimmer highlight from mid cheek to temple.  Tap a darker highlight under the apple. Lips- go with a color closer to your lip liner.  The frosty pinky peach can wash you out in photos or also make you look too girly clubbish.  Top it off with a nice clear long wear gloss and you are good to go!  Note- MAC lip glass is like fly paper, too sticky.  In my experience, the cheap stuff seems to work best 🙂

Feel free to email with any questions.  Hope my suggestions are helpful 🙂  Happy face painting!!!!

Very pretty eyes!  I agree with the person who said, “i love it! the only thing i would change slightly is to carry the upper lash liner a little further into the inner corner of your eye…. it will help the false lashes belnd in better”  but that’s the only thing.  So pretty!!!
