The Eyes Have It

I'll be doing some make-up trials soon, the first with an Aveda makeup artist (a good friend of mine) in the DC-area and another with a former MAC artist who freelances in Cleveland. So I am starting to think about how I'd like my makeup to look for my bridals and the wedding.
I hear a lot of brides say they want their makeup to look, above all, "natural" on their wedding day.
And although I don't want to look "made-up" and certainly not "overdone"--I can't say I want to look "natural" to the point of looking like my every day self...

That said I want to look glammed up a bit, and I want the focus on my eyes.
I don't consider Oprah Winfrey a 'style icon' for me, but I must say, it is photos of her makeup--particularly her EYES--that have stood out to me in looking for 'inspiration' photos.







What do you have in mind for your makeup for the big day?

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I use statcounter.com for all of my stat checking obsessiveness. The "recent came from" and "recent visitor activity" tabs are my favorite. I love knowing where people are coming from! The map is also pretty cool, because you can see where in the world people are reading your blog from.

YIKES! What's up with Oprah's nose in the second pick? Someone butchered it!
