Hair/makeup Trial Feedback...kinda hate it

Hi everyone!

I had my hair/makeup trial tonight at 7pm (couldn’t coordinate our schedules to work any better...which sucks bc I paid for the trial just to go home and wash it all off).

Anyway....I kinda don’t like it. I like the hair, and I am also pinning flowers (small roses) into my hair, so try and imagine that. But the makeup.....maybe I’m just not used to wearing this much makeup? It just feels cakey and flat (it is airbrush, but I have dry skin).

Im not a very confrontational person, so I didn’t say anything negative really. But here’s what I’m going to text her to tell her I want changed for the real day:

1) More blush...I feel like my face is very flat
2) More highlighter...again, flat
3) More sparkle on eyelids
4) More color on lips
5) Different lashes??? Idk. They are from Morphe but I feel like they are super long and plastic-y looking. Maybe I’ll buy my own and bring them?
6) Nose contour? I feel like the airbrush foundation color was a little too light and makes my nose look super wide
7) Eyeliner kind of looks wonky? Or is that too picky?

Also keep in mind that it was around 9pm when I took these pictures, so the lighting isn’t the greatest! Please send all and any feedback! I have tough skin, no need to sugar coat anything!

    Honestly I think your hair and makeup both look good. I don't think it looks cakey or flat. If you want more color, I would ask for a little more blush but I think the highlight is good. You have a nice glow. I think the lipstick is great. Lashes look good too. I could see adding a little more shadow. That's the only thing I would definitely request. It doesn't look bad just could use a little more.

    The only things I agree with are more blush and the more shimmer on the eyelids. Other than that you look great, and I personally really like the eyelashes. However it's your face and your big day so do what makes you feel beautiful and confident! Smiley smile

    I think your hair looks great and your make up is really pretty! I agree with the eyeliner, it doesn't wing up it kinda goes down and the line is not very even 😕 But I really like the lip color. That shade looks nice on you!

    I am in love with your hair! So pretty! I think your makeup is stunning as well and love the lashes however I can see how the blush, highlighter and eyeshadow could amp it up and make it a little more wedding day! Overall beautiful though!

    I think your face looks fine, airbrush looks very natural, stays in place all day and photographs great. You can also contour over top with powder after it you want more defined contour on your nose. I'm definitely someone who also likes more blush and highlight as well so go with what you know you like on yourself. For eye shimmer I normally put a decent amount of highlighter on my inner eye and then gently blend it onto my eyelid to blend with my eyeshadow and give my eyes a pop. the only thing I'd say is the eyeliner. It can be a pain to do on other people but she definitely could've done a better job in that area. Everything else looks great but is just a matter of personal preference on style.

    I think the airbrush is beautiful. I do think you could use a little more highlight and blush. I'm biased because I want people to see my highlight from across the room😂 I do agree that your eyeliner is a little off and I'd definitely add some inner corner highlight to your eyes to make them pop a little more. I don't think your makeup looks flat. Just needs some extra pow.

    Love the hair! Regarding the makeup, I think it's all very personal, I don't wear much and I really liked my trial but with the foundation I was a little "woah" at first bc I just never wear foundation and am not used to it. My point is, I think it looks nice here but it's about what you want. I would say though, you are saying you aren't used to wearing much makeup but you seem to want more of it? I would just be careful with your wording.

    I think your makeup looks good, love the hair. Your skin looks great, not cakey at all. I agree that something is a little wonky w the eyeliner but I’m not sure what it is- It doesn’t look straight, or maybe it should be a thicker line? I think the eyelashes are personal preference - you could always get more natural looking lashes.

    Love it!! I did read you don’t want too much sparkle because it doesn’t photograph well so maybe that’s why she didn’t add more... I’m doing my own makeup and don’t hardly wear any so I have been doing research lol

    I’d be careful with hilighter, you may look too shiny with your photos. I had that happen to a friend of mine she was so upset when she got her pictures

    I tho k your hair and makeup both look beautiful. But, if you don’t love it then speak up. You’re going to be looking at your makeup in all your photos so if you don’t like it now you aren’t going to like it then! I would maybe ask about the eyeliner, it doesn’t look very even. I think your eyelashes look great but if you think they look fake in person maybe switch them for ones not quite as long. But, honestly you look amazing as is.

    I think both look amazing! I don’t think the makeup looks too flat, honestly. BUT it’s about you, so if you want to change it up, do it! It’s your day girlfriend!

    If you don’t love it, have her change it! It is your day after all and you should feel comfortable with what you are paying for! And for the lashes, I think Kiss eyelashes and Torte eyelashes are some of the best and I wear lashes everyday(:

    I would ask for more contour, cheeks and nose like you said. also the eyeliner could be more winged out but overall everything looks great, the lashes look good and the colors she chose are great for you. Id stick with her just make those small adjustments

    I think you look great! The only thing I noticed was the eyeliner looked like it wasn’t put on smoothly in one line. At least in those pics it did?

    You seriously have the most gorgeous hair! 😍 I’m definitely not a big makeup person, but the main thing I noticed was the eye liner. When your eyes were closed it looks like like they did it with a shaky hand or something? I personally love the lashes (from the pictures at least), but agree with those who said more eye shadow. Overall, you look gorgeous. Best of luck!

    Honestly I think I would do the eyeliner differently. It doesn’t look even to me either. Not wild about the wings she did and the lashes look fake to me. I am having individual lashes added in which looks much more natural. Maybe try that? We did like 5 on each lid and it looks amazing.
