Make up trial

So I had my makeup trial yesterday and I'm having serious doubts about it. She did airbrush even though I said I was a little concerned about it and wanted fuller coverage. She also didn't contour and just used blush where contour would go. I love contour and I think it looks really nice in pictures. My eyes were good nut that's the only thing I liked. Make up trial 1this is my inspo. I wanted a pretty glam look for my dark and moody wedding.

These are a few pics of just a couple hours after.

And these are pictures when I did makeup myself. I just wasn't wowed at all. Idk if I'm being too picky or what it just wasn't the way I like to look. I think I like the way I do my makeup better possibly.

    It looks really pretty on you. If you do not feel wowed or amazing in it, then I think you should try something else or another attempt. It is YOUR day so you deserve to look how you want! Smiley smile

    Going with the vibe you have for your wedding I don't think she paid much attention to your inspo pic. I think the picture where you did the makeup yourself is closer than what she did. I don't think she hit the marker with the work that was done.

    Honestly, it looks really plain to me and based on your inspiration picture she did not deliver at all. The makeup looks pretty on you, but it definitely isn't glam makeup that is more of a natural look. I would hire someone else.

    Thank you! Yeah I just don't see myself looking like that on my wedding day. I wasn't feeling myself at all like when I do my own makeup.

    That's what I was thinking too. The more I look at my inspo pic the more I dislike the makeup she did. I was afraid I was just being too picky.

    Thank you. I agree with it looking plain. Some friends said it looks like I wasn't wearing anything and I'm not sure if that's what I want honestly.

    As you have every right ot feel that way, sadly I don't think she followed through with the look you truly want and in my opinion that look you can most certainly pull off!
    You are not being too picky at all and deserve to look your best!

    Echoing PPs. Both looks are really pretty, but hold up, the MUA didn't do any bold/dramatic lipstick?!?! That's kind of a big aspect of your inspo pic! And I agree with you on the contour. Not being picky at all. Totally valid!!!

    She put a lipstick on me that was the darkest she had but it was pinky red. I love my deep purple lipstick or a deep burgundy. It also was very poor quality. I took one drink of water and it instantly came off. My lipsticks I get are very stable. I can kiss, eat, and drink and it stays put. Honestly the lipstick was very off-putting for me because of how poor quality it was.

    This says to me that she is not the right fit for you. I love my lipsticks as well and if someone I was working with didn't even have colors in the same palette I wanted then I would be second-guessing things.


    Out of curiosity what lipsticks do you get?

    I like the way you did your makeup especially with the lipstick! Really pops.
    What she did feels a little too natural compared to your inspo.

    Yeah I would find someone else that could do it more like the picture.

    Whaaaaaat.......so in my opinion, that's 3 strikes already! The lack of contouring, the small selection of lipstick, and the poor quality of lipstick. I would agree that you should either find a different MUA or be your own MUA!

    I agree with some of the other ladies, you look beautiful, and I know the photos you posted where you did your makeup yourself have been professionally edited, but I much prefer that makeup to the professional trial - it IS a bit plain and not at all what I would be expecting from a paid professional. I mean, why bother paying someone for that when what you did yourself was equally as nice, if not much moreso?
