Hi!
Looking for some feedback on two hair and makeup trials I had. I labeled the photos so it’s easier to tell.

“My artist” is the person I’ve ever already hired, who lives where I’m getting married (Marbella, Spain). Those photos were taken with a ring light, and it’s more of a bronzed look with a lighter eye.
“Local trial” is the one I just did two days ago here in South Florida. I wasn’t 100% in love with my trial in Spain so I did a second one here. This is more my natural skin tone I think, with a darker eye. I took them in front of a window so it’s natural light, not ring. The hair seems tidier to me.
Which look do you like better? I’m not replacing the woman I’ve already hired (and can’t afford to fly someone out to Spain just to do my hair and makeup haha) so it’s more about providing guidance to my current HMUA.
Thanks! ☺️☺️

    They both look great! I can see where you feel more comfortable with the local look because it does seem to match your skin tone better. Then again, the lighting is different in both, so it’s hard to make a fair comparison, but you should definitely show your HMUA photos from your local trial to offer up suggestions in what you want for your hair and makeup on your wedding day. I’m sure she will be more than happy to work with you on it.

    What lip color are you wearing in second picture. I’d love it for my wedding day?

    Thank you guys!!! I’m feeling pretty much the same way, and will definitely show some photos to my artist over there. I hope she won’t be offended or anything.
    Really appreciate it!

    The local trial makeup is Whirl by Mac and the artist in Spain used Spice lip pencil only, also by Mac. 😊
