Hola ladiesssss!!! First, I just want to send some love to everyone, especially all the March, April and May brides. I pray for your strength, understanding and peace during this time!

So...something other than covid-19 🛑🤚🏾🚫❌ Before the outbreak I was able to get some makeup trials done and boy it was not as easy as I thought it would be. I thought I'd never find THE ONE! I did 4 trials total with 3 different artist (gave 1 another shot at it)...first 3 trials were good but they weren't "bridal" enough for me. I had done research of course and their looks looked great but just not on me for some reason. Then I started to really think, what is it that I'm not saying to get them to be able to achieve the look I'm going for?

Tip: Try learning the language of MUAs. I kept saying I want a SIMPLE look and that's exactly what I got in look #4 🤦🏾‍♀️, way to plain. In her defense, it was the end of the night and I was in dance practice when I took the picture but as you can see the look didn't even last a good 6 hours 🤷🏾‍♀️...instead I should've been using a different choice of words. Here are some notes/lingo I took for myself after the first 2 trials:• Natural looking eyebrows
• Soft contour
• Neutral tones
• Bronzed look
• Warm tones, very warm
• No gold eyeshadow
• Matte lip
• No pink/nude glossy lip
• Colored lip
• Full lashes (whispy) or spider lashes
• Bold lashes
• Focus on eyes
• A dry look/matte finish
• No black eyeliner on bottom lashline...must be very very thin if used

So using terms like soft, matte finish, warm tones are all words that makeup artist understand lol. Take your time with this because I was like wtHECK is going on here 😂 I don't wear makeup on a regular basis but with this look I felt BEAUTIFUL and it's fiance approved!!! I got sooooo many compliments that evening. We went dancing and we DANCE DANCE lol and that makeup still looked flawless at the end of the night. She did an amazing job listening to my wants/needs, I still looked like myself and she did an awesome job recreating a look I came across. Check out the pics and the winning look!

    Looks good, glad you were able to find the look you love but sorry it took 4tries! I booked my makeup artist and paid in full before doing my makeup trial. I was so convinced I loved her work based on her portfolio but when we did the makeup trial I was disappointed. Not that it wasnt a good job but it also didn’t feel bridal enough for me. I wanted full glam and didn’t feel like my makeup was Wow, its was just nice for bridal makeup. This might have been my fault for showing (now i realize) her the wrong inspiration picture. Although It was a look I loved, it looked better on the model because the crease color meshed well with the model’s skin tone but not mine, also I have hooded eyelids and the MUA didn’t take into account. We did both eyes with different looks and I didnt love either style. I also wasnt in love w my contour either. I cancelled her since the wedding was postponed & I chose not to transfer to a different date. My MOH’s sister did my makeup for my bridal shower and I felt Really glam. So the small amount I got refunded (only because I paid in full, I lost my deposit) I will give to my MOH sister and I feel really good about that decision.

    Absolutely beautiful, I don't wear makeup at all, EVER. So, my brother and I have been experimenting to get the "look" I want perfected. My fiance doesn't care for makeup and if he had his way I would be completely natural. But, we'll see how it turns out.

    Looks beautiful! Thank you for the advice because I am someone who doesn't wear make up. The most I've ever done is wear lip gloss on a night out. So knowing the language is very helpful!
