Hi ladies, had the hair and makeup done today. I wanted something natural (me but better). I love the colors, what do you think? I’m an older bride and didn’t want anything too dramatic. I figured I wanted it to look good in photos and being 57 I wasn’t sure what to do. Kudos to Angela at Salon S!Hair and makeup trial today... does it look ok? 1

    This is beautifully done. I think it looks "just enough" since you don't want an overly dramatic look. I will be an older (49) second time bride and was thinking something like this for my hair too

    It’s definitely easier off the face I didn’t want stuff hanging in front that would drive me crazy!

    Thank you Kristen! Yes I’m lucky! 12 years ago I had cancer and went through chemo and was so happy it grew back to its original state, wavy and thick, thank God!

    Thanks Samantha, it does feel like like a lot of makeup. I went through the entire day running errands and such, and it never budged!

    Pretty!! The only thing I would comment on is the fact that you have more of a pink undertone and the makeup that the artist used has a yellow undertone. If you look at the photo, you’ll see the difference in color between your face and your chest/arms. So, I would have another run at the foundation color with your artist. Your photographer is going to take high quality photos. So you want to make sure the color is correct.

    I agree with sexy-poodle, If you were my friend and asking me I would tell you that your eyes, cheeks and lips are on point color wise. Everything matches, except your foundation, You have pink undertones. You need a cool or neutral foundation. I had this same issue with my makeup trial. My artist made me look orange. I have a similar color to you. Please check out Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. I have pink undertones like you and I use 4.75 color. I'm 50 and so I know what works. This foundation is beautiful and I see you tuber make up artists using it all the time, especially for older people like us. It gives a "dewy" glow. You don't want to look super matte on your wedding day. Good luck! Your are gorgeous!!

    Thank you for this info! I will pick this up and ask her to use it. She did use powder and setting spray and was a bit more matte and dry looking.

    Don’t know if my answer posted to you so writing again. Thank you both! I will pick up this foundation and concealer. She did use powder and it made it dry and matte. I will tell her to use my stuff and will get the 4.75 I’m terrible at matching myself for foundation.
