Wedding Makeup

So, on the road to being wed I have had three test runs in the area of bridal makeup. My last run-through was my favorite, and therefore I chose to work with her. We had so much fun discussing makeup, and chatted for a long while about beauty products in general. My dream. It was a match made in heaven, and I was sure that her positive vibe would mesh well with the girls (she already scored with mom, who decided to make her tea and sweets while she was working on my face). Only problem is, she unexpectedly moved to Japan. Therefore, I am now going to be working with her bff who is also a fabulous artist and parallels her every technique. This is the look that she left me with...

Please don't mind the bright red jumper (or for that matter, the oven) which makes me appear as though my face is even more pink than it is. This is a very heavy look for me--I've said it several times and I'll say it again: for the amount of makeup I own, I tend to go very light when it comes down to actually applying it. I know that this tactic isn't very successful when it comes to bridal (as it also is not for fashion), because the color needs to take on film. The look I was aiming for was fresh and clean, yet with an accentuated eye. I wish I could replicate my eyes like she did. Ah well...there's always practice. I've considered comparing this to the looks that the other artists did--but I think this one wins out. What are your thoughts?
