FOTD: Potential Wedding Look #1

Hey Guys!
As you know, I plan on doing my own makeup for my wedding. Currently I have no idea what colours I want to use. I know typically people wear a little bit more makeup on their wedding day because of the amount of photos that are being taken. I'm trying to find a good balance between looking good in photos and looking good in person. I will be taking photos outside as well as indoors with flash so I want to make sure my makeup looks flawless in both settings. Charles also prefers a more natural looking face, minimal eyeshadow, no false eyelashes so I'm trying to please him as well. I probably will end up wearing individual lashes or a half strip because I find lashes complete a look. I'll just have to make sure I won't wear my drag queen eyelashes so he won't be able to tell haha. This look is a pink bridal look. I plan on doing a more peach one later. I would like to do a few of these and maybe at the end I can put up a poll and see which one you guys like best!?

  1. This look is pretty but, i feel like yout should glam it up! Its your wedding go all out! Xoxo

  2. No false eyelashes on your wedding day! I think you'll regret wearing them in years to come;-) You're very beautiful - you don't need them - they detract from your natural good looks. Listen to your future husband!

  3. You look gorgeous, flawless but still natural, hes a lucky man xx

  4. Pretty!!!! Love the colors that you used on your eyes. Can't wait to see the peach version!

  5. Wow, you look amazing!!!! Its very visible in the first pic, you look so thin! I'm so happy for you.

    As always, I love the pic of you smiling with your teeth the most.. Stunning.

    I think its a great wedding look. What do u think of vita aqua? I was wondering if youd think id like it.. Thanks babee :)

  6. OMG you just too pretty!<3

  7. you look absolutely stunning.. (:

    love your blog - been reading for a while now! xx

  8. You look lovely and flawless as usual and I am sure whatever look you go for on your wedding day you will look beautiful!

    Love your blog another great look xx

  9. This one looks very pretty! I did my makeup for my wedding as well and went with a bronzey eye. Can't wait to see the peach look!

  10. I think it would be great! Simple and beautiful <3

  11. Love it!!!!

  12. You look so gorgeous! I love this look and you nailed that happy medium of natural and glamor all in one :)

  13. I love the wedding look :) you will make a gorgeous bride :)

  14. This is gorgeous and congrats!
    Have you seen my new giveaway?!

  15. i love it and i think the half lash looks great. its subtle but makes a big difference without looking fake.

  16. I'm thinking of doing half lashes as well. When I do a full set, I always end up looking like a trannie.
    You look gorgeous and this look will be perfect for the big day.

  17. I love this look! You look absolutely stunning. I would probably get rid of the half lashes though because I feel like it's a little too obvious and unnatural when photographed with your eyes shut. You'll look gorgeous with a few individual lashes or no fake lashes at all.

  18. You're very beautiful - you don't need them - they detract from your natural good looks. Listen to your future husband!

  19. The look is really pretty and fresh, great for your wedding day! The only thing I would change is to consider individual lashes instead of a half set. The halves are kind of obvious in some photos, unfortunately. Individual flares will blend in much better, and are often used on celebrities for an invisible, but much fuller look in photos. You did a great job though, it's a very pretty look!

  20. Definitely YES! Perfect bridal look. And I adore your hair as well :D


  21. Cheryl this look is flawless hunny!
    Id definitely pick this look
