Since we've got a lot of vintage flair to our wedding, I was thinking of going with an old Hollywood kind of make up style. You know, red lips, black eye-liner. Here's an example of one of the photos I brought in as a guide:
I'm generally pretty comfortable with heavy makeup in the past, but lately I've been wearing less and less. And just about every wedding resource out there says "don't go nuts with your makeup -- you'll want to look natural and look like yourself." Well, I felt like the end result was very dramatic, nowhere near natural. Not that it was necessarily a bad thing, and I still looked like "myself," just myself in very dramatic makeup.
Looking at the picture, it doesn't look nearly as dramatic as it did in person. In fact, the picture looks pretty darn good, but I think the flash is washing it out a bit, making the colors less pronounced. JT agrees that, in person, it looked more dramatic (the blush in particular). So I'm not sure what to think...is dramatic OK? Will people think I've gone overboard? Will I look way too made up? Or should I just embrace being super glamorous?
