For my sister's wedding, I had the Chanel makeup artist create my look, and then I did my makeup myself on the day. Worked out fine ...

When in doubt, always go with neutral tones.

Our dresses were a very intense emerald green ... I used Tempting Beige blush, golden eyeshadow tones, and a red lipstick.

I really think it's quite enough to have matching dresses--I don't think the makeup has to match too ... but as I recall, others did use some stronger tones like I did.

I love an unmatched dresses look ...

Well people tend to get scared of the colors thing, so I usually recommend people go with neutral tones to play it safe.

What you used sounds perfect, though.

I think its mainly because there will photos for a long time after so a timeless natural makeup is usually best IMO and save the bright colours for the hens night hehehe

^ Generally brides are wearing white or a light color, so light makeup is usually appropriate for them. It may be different if red is actually one of the wedding colors (as for a Christmas wedding), or for the bridesmaids if they're wearing an intense color. Had I worn all pale makeup, I would have looked washed out.

Keep in mind her normal makeup style (whether it's natural, dramatic etc) you want her to look like herself, concentrate on flawless skin and go from there. Also keep in mind that the fact that there will be a ton of photos so don't be afraid to put on a little more than you would in an everyday situation (don't cake anything on though ) professional photography will wash out makeup especially if there are outdoor shots. Also, don't use mineral makeup, or makeup with a lot of spf, it photographs horribly.

I'm getting married the end of september and I'll be doing a very retro, dita von teese look. I contemplated going with a very soft natural look and more nude lips but realized that that isn't my personality at all! And the one thing I would regret is looking back and wishing I had done my fav makeup style.

I've been reading the posts about natural makeup...

And the one thing that has stuck out to me is that I want to wear an amazing peach lipstick. I haven't bought any for the meantime simply because I haven't visited a makeup counter in forever (and haven't tried any NEW makeup lately). But I know two things... I want a beautiful peach color (I'm going vintage-style with my wedding look... antique/off white and birdcage veil) and I want a bit of shimmer on my cheeks.

That sounds amazing ^


Well with "natural" only go with whats natural to you.. If you normally wear bright makeup etc then it would be strange to change that for your wedding.. If i ever get married I'd stick to my same colours and definatly some fake lashes so my eyes pop in the photos

^ Thanks for the advice, The Ida... I meant just a bit of Benefit High Beam on my cheekbones, like I normally do. Does that count as "shimmer"?

And Mk's Beauty Shop, YES, false eyelashes are a MUST! They're on my to-buy list.
