Hair and Makeup Trial - Makeup opinions please

I went yesterday for my makeup and hair trial. I really loved the hair and he really listened to me when I described what I wanted and I have to say it couldn't have turned out better.

For the makeup, I rarely wear a lot (i'm a foundation, blush, lipgloss kinda girl). I love the way it looked in real life but not sure about how it photographs. I tried to take a bunch of photos but the lighting wasn't great.

    I think your look is very sweet and beautiful! If you're not one for the full on dramatic look, the makeup is perfect and very natural. It all depends on how YOU feel, but I think it looks lovely.

    Your hair is beautiful!  I love it.
    Your makeup is really nice, and if you like how it photographs and think it still looks like "you" then you should definitely stay with it.  Not knowing you and just going by your coloring, I'd suggest having a bit more color on your lips.  Not too much more, just a little to make them stand out a bit.  Show the pics to your family and friends and see what they say too.

    Overall you look beautiful!

    I think it looks great!  If you wanted to change anything, I agree with PP and think you could go with more color on your lips.

    Hmmm... I think the pouf could look slightly bigger from the front. Other than that I think everything looks great? Are you going to be wearing a veil?

    I think it looks great! If you don't wear a lot normally I wouldn't wear a lot on your wedding day. You wanna look like yourself!

    The poof could be a little higher, because you can't see the poof from the front.  Other than that the hair is very cute and your makeup is gorgeous!

    i think that the make-up is pretty nicely balanced. you do want a little brighter look than you would normally wear, it will photograph better. I'm saying that from experience, I used to do quite a bit of photography. makeup tends to get muffled the most under indoor lights.

    also, i disagree a little with PP about the lips. but it's just a personal preference. I like expressive eyes and muted lips. :)

    LOVE your gorgeous hair and I also like the makeup a lot. Obviously I don't know you, but I think you look like "you" and not totally doneup like someone else.

    Thanks everyone for the nice compliments.
    I was thinking of trying a different color of lipstick on the day just to see the difference.
    For the bump in my hair, it's actually quite high, just not very noticeable in that pic.
    I took the photos myself, so my head was angled in a way you can't see it.

    It definitely looks more like me, as I don't wear a lot and my FI didn't even want me to have eye liner. The makeup artist put it on very thin.
