Bright Bold Lips

Yesterday I got some exciting visitors! My amazing friend M and her equally amazing bag of tools!


That is right! Finally time for my make up trial. As a reminder, this was the look I was going for:


Via Rhodes Wedding Planners

Big red-coralish lips, and a more subtle eye look. And so we began.



I have no idea what she used, she mixed several brands and used different products, brushes, creams and powders. This is the result:



I think she did an amazing job! I like the color of the lips and how my eyes look. I’m wearing lashes, but they aren’t so full, so I don’t feel that they look too fake. What do you think? Any suggestions? She told me that we can change anything I want, so your input is most welcome.

Here are some pics I took later that day, at different times, settings and lights.



I can’t wait to have my hair trial!

    First off, you look gorgeous! Those lips are just crazy beautiful and I loooove your eyes!! I have a few things that stood out to me but bear in mind, I am no expert so take this with a grain of salt. :)

    In my opinion, your cheeks could use more highlighting. You have GORGEOUS cheekbones, so show those off girl!!! I think slightly longer lashes would make your whole look POP, although I get that you want your lips to stand out (for good reason, your lips are so beautifully full). Otherwise, I love your look. You’re gonna make a gorgeous bride. :)

    You look amazing, I am so jealous of your amazing full lips (please don’t be creeped out by me).
    I think the eyes and lips are perfect, the only thing I would change would be a bit more blush and contour and highlight, so that it’ll really stand out in your photographs. But seriously, you look FANTASTIC and your friend did a superb job!

    Soooooo that lip color? Is PERFECT for you! I think the toned down eyes complement your bold lip perfectly. The look is so pretty and polished; I love it. And of course, makeup or not, you are gorgeous!

    I am insanely jealous of your lips right now. You pull off that color so well and it looks SO GOOD. I love the toned down eyes with it. If I were you, I might add a little more color to your cheeks? It comes through in some lighting but not all and I think it would make everything pop a little more! (But I can barely do my own makeup, so just keep that in mind 😉 ) You look beautiful!

    I have your friend’s necklace! XD
    I get excited about things like that, sorry.

    About your makeup, you look amazing! I think it’s a great choice to focus on your lips. That color looks amazing on you. However, I would add a little shimmery shadow below your eyebrow and a bit more lashes. Also, I agree with contouring a bit more.

    You have SUCH great features, Miss Weather Vane – the makeup honestly just enhances them. I love the colors you chose and think you’re going to be a stunning bride.

    You look gorgeous! I was going to say a bit more blush too, just to brighten you up.

    Lovity love love it, especially the subtle lashes. I think your eyebrows need a little filling it, or maybe just gentler shaping the next time you do them. They look great, but they look different from different angles, so in photos they’ll want that top arch solid.

    Te ves preciosa! Love the look! I think everyone had some good insight. I agree that a bit of blush/bronzer might be great to tie the whole thing together. And don’t forget to purchase some of the essentials like the lipstick to touch up your makeup later on the day of (I did, whooops!).
