(Sorry... don't know why it turns the picture sideways. ) I did my first trial with an artist. Cons: I didn't feel any connection with her, felt like I was just another appointment (like she didn't want to know about my dress, hair, contacts vs glasses, etc)? When I asked if she wanted to know, she just sort of shrugged and was like "sure". Her price is high for me and the area. Pros: she's available at my way-too-early time. I generally liked her work, even though we have to fix the foundation color. I guess my question is: if I'm not unhappy with her work, should I stick with her? Or should I do a trial with someone else?
I mean a connection is nice but putting things into perspective you are only gonna deal with her 2 hrs maybe 3 max and probably not that. To me if I pay you to do your job right and you do I am satisfied. I think you look good but if you are not fully satisfied with your look then I would do another trial elsewhere. To me it makes more sense to have a good relationship with photographers and the officiant or any person you will deal with for hours on end. Ultimately it depends on what is important to you. If a connection and conversation is then I think you should look for it.
It honestly sounds like you already know.... you should go with someone else. I loved my makeup artist, we talked the whole time and she seemed really excited. I had emailed another makeup artist who was never quick to respond and basically told me she could squeeze me in. I didn’t want to be treated like a second thought so I immediately stopped communicating with her. She never contacted me again so even more proof. My makeup artist made as many corrections as necessary during our trial.
I'm not big on lashes either but they make a difference in photos. Hard to find ones that are very natural like that, especially for someone like me with eyes that are close to my brows. I'll see if I can poke around on the internet and find those. Thanks!
