Like most women, I don't wear a lot of make up on a regular day so I was forewarned by my MUA (who also happens to be my friend's wife) that bridal make up looks a like a lot of make up because it has to last til the last dance and it will look great on photos. Does it look ok? Please don't mind the lighting, I tried to take it in natural light. It was shocking to see how much make up was on my face but she was right, it did look great on photos and it lasted all day!

    Thanks Ladies! She used a lip stain on me so at the end of the day, it still looked like I had lipstick on.

    She did a great job your make up looks perfect. It's dramatic and beautiful with out being over done. SO beautiful

    It looks great! I plan to do my own makeup so I can just do a touch-up between the ceremony and the reception, because I'm afraid of having way too much makeup on. I don't live in the highest-class of places, so I'm not super convinced of the skill of the makeup artists here, haha.

    It looks OK, but the question is, are you comfortable in it? Do YOU think you look pretty? I had a similar experience, where I went to my makeup trial and was totally traumatized about how made-up I looked, and I thought, "well, if I don't look in a mirror all day..." and that's not really how one should be thinking on their wedding day. If you don't like it, tell them to tone it down.

    I think it looks great. Maybe you should look into airbrush? I hear that's much lighter feeling on the face and won't make you feel like you have a ton of make up on your face.

    I honestly think it looks fantastic. I wasn't considering having my make-up done, but after seeing your photos, I'm second-guessing that decision. It really looks that good.

    I think it looks great Elaine. You look beautiful. And this is actually one of the more natural looking make up trial pics I've seen on here. The eyes are dramatic, but definitely not overdone or too much. You look great.

    It didn't feel like a lot but it did look like a lot at first glance.

    @Forever(a)Young it was weird seeing all that make up on me but in the end it was what I wanted to look like.

    My MUA friend actually talked me out of airbrushing Smiley smile My vision was that I wanted emphasis on the eyes.

    @Katie thanks! I'm glad to have helped Smiley smile

    Thank you WW ladies!
