MUA advice, think I look like a clown

I had my mua trial today and I need your help on how it looks.. I'm not sure, I kinda feel like I look like a clown, especially the eyebrows and it's not the natural look I was going for, but I am not a big make up person so maybe I just feel like that because I'm not use to it.

    I think it looks gorgeous! If you're not used to heavier makeup, it can definitely take some getting used to. But try voicing your concerns with the MUA, you don't want to be stuck looking at pictures and hating how you look!

    Honestly, it doesn't look like you have on much makeup at all. It looks pretty natural to me - and that's a good thing. I think you look pretty.

    The brows are super heavy and that dark eyeliner under your eyes does not give it a natural feel.

    I think it looks natural. I'm a person that doesn't wear make up at all but when I do it's a little liner and eyeshadow. So I would say it looks perfect and if you dont like something just tell her now before your big day.

    Im like you, I prefer a more natural look and I agree with you, the MUA appears to have been a little heavy with the make up (especially with brows)... BareMinerals is really good for more natural looks... My opinion... Congratulations on the wedding!!!

    It's a bit heavy but not bad at all!

    I think it looks pretty and not over the top. However I think your brows are a bit strong compared to the rest of the makeup so maybe tone those down?

    It looks pretty natural to me, with embellishments. It will look really good with flash photography. You could ask her to fill the brows in a little less heavy if they're too much for you.

    You need a new artist.

    It's not bad but it's certainly not worth the price you paid for wedding quality make up.

    I personally do not think it's to heavy (but well. . I'm super heavy handed) but it's not polished enough for a wedding.

    I'm not a fan of make-up but do wear a little. MHO is your eye liner & brows are too over done. It doesn't look like you have any blush on at all. I would personally find someone else. Good luck.

    You look amazing but if you feel like it's a bit much I would ask your MUA to go lighter on the eyeliner and eyebrows.

    I think it looks very natural! I could see what you mean thinking the eye brows are heavy but they look good! You have to love it and feel beautiful though so just tell the things you don't like and see how they can be fixed!

    I dont think you look like a clown!!! You look nice Smiley smile

    But, I will say that I agree with Jo. I feel like this is something you could have whipped on yourself. It doesn't look like a professional MUA did this make-up. There is a bit too much eyeliner all the way around. That looks a bit heavy.

    If I were you, I would try a different MUA Smiley smile

    I like all of it except for the brows which seem really thick to me.

    It looks a little harsh to me on the eyes and brows. The different components of the makeup don't seem to mesh with each other.

    I agree with others...this isn't heavy enough, in my opinion. Need brighter colors, more blush, darker lipstick. Remember that you're photographing your face from what, 8 inches away? A wedding photographer is going to be 10 yards back. You want to pop!

    Thank you for all the advice. Yes I agree, eyebrows are way to heavy and it's not the kind of natural look I was going for, I'll trial with her one more time and then if I'm still uncomfortable I'll pick a new mua. Smiley smile

    I don't think it looks bad, but I think it could be better. The eyeliner especially looks a little strong to me and not as polished as it could be. I'd give her another chance with clear expectations on how you want it to change, or find a new MUA
