DIY Makeup (Trial 1)

I do not wear a whole lot of makeup.  The dry Colorado climate caused me to have breakouts, so I've recently started wearing foundation to cover up some of that.  Fortunately, I've found a pretty good moisturizer and I've got it relatively under control.  Other than that, I typically just put on a little eyeliner.  

On special occasions, I'll put on some eye shadow and jazz it up a little bit.  That's about the extent of my makeup experience.

On our wedding day, I want to look special.  However, I still want to look like me.  I don't want to pay someone to do my makeup (of course!  I don't like paying anyone to do something I can do myself!  I'm cheap frugal!).  

So, I decided to do a makeup trial tonight at home.  This is what I came up with (please excuse my crazy hair.  I didn't do anything with it and it's crazy long -- for me at least!):

I thought it looked pretty good, but the lips looked too pink.  So, I changed that:

Better.  I'm still not really sure about all of it though.  My bangs are much longer than they're going to be for the wedding (they're driving me bonkers!), so the effects on the eyes couldn't be seen very well.  So, I took some shots with my hair pulled back.  I want to make sure that the makeup can be seen on my eyes, but not be too overpowering.  

I think it's pretty good.  I'm pleased for my first trial.  What do you think?  Any suggestions?

  1. I like it! The lip color in the second pic is better I think.
