Having Jenn over was really fun. She was very open to adding on different layers of colors and depth to her eyes through shadows and lashes! Here are the before and afters:

Before and After #3
We tried two different looks with Jenn. The first one, in this before photo is with false lashes, light shadowing, and nude colored lips. In the after photo, we switched to a more plum-wine lip color with more dramatic eyes.

Natural/Nude look: This look would suite a few brides who are really, really shy about makeup, but still want to look finished for their wedding day. If you don't normally like to wear makeup, and are already hesitant about makeup on your wedding day, this look might match your needs. However, this look is also quite casual. It's almost even more appropriate for a daytime look, rather than a wedding look. Just my two cents! :)

Final look: I added more definition to Jenn's eyes by choosing a darker brown shade towards the base of her eyelids and blending a charcoal color onto the outer corners of her lids. We switched the nude colored lips out with a plum-wine color and came up with a look that was more appropriate for a special wedding event.

Good luck with all the planning Jenn!
