Wedding day look vs. Every day look

How did your wedding day look compare to your everyday look? Did you look like yourself or did you look different? I am a minimalist when it comes to make up, and totally amateur. When I had my trial, I thought my make up looked really nice, but the way she did my eye brows looked harsh on me, too dark than I am used to. So I am likely going to be changing some things.


I would love to see your lovely photos!

    I also don't wear a ton of makeup everyday - I pretty much just do my eyes with eyeliner, eye shadow, and mascara. All things considered, my HMUA did a pretty good job on the trial. I told her I didn't want my freckles covered up so she did a really light and see-through foundation. There was a little too much product under my eyes for my taste - I know she was trying to brighten the dark areas, but I thought it ended up showing every crease and wrinkle haha. She also tried putting on false lashes and that didn't go so well. They didn't look bad, just soooo different than I normally look, and I think the weight would have driven me absolutely crazy. All in all I think I can get what I want from my HMUA, I'm just going to have to be exact about everything.

    I hardly ever wear makeup in day to day life but I was really happy with how they did me up for the wedding day! I still felt very much like me!

    I tried the false lashes for the first time too when I did the trial . It felt weird! But I got used to it and will be having those for the wedding! Did you do regular foundation or airbrush?

    Your make up artist did an amazing job! You looked so pretty!

    Just regular foundation. I think I could tolerate the false lashes if I had to, but on my wedding day I don't want anything to be uncomfortable, and they'd definitely be uncomfortable for me.

    I wear zero makeup day to day. For my wedding, I wanted to still look like myself. We tweaked things in my trial and even tweaked things day of. I loved my makeup that day. It photographed really well.

    Only thing really major was my hair aha because I never really do it so it was all curled and accessorized. My face was the same because I don't wear make up so I chose not to wear it on my wedding day too

    I’m not a huge makeup person either but I wanted I wanted to look a bit different on my wedding day so my makeup person did airbrush which was light on my face. I worse false lashes for the first time ever and loved how they made my eyes pop. I didn’t hide my freckles or overdo it but just enough to make me look special for that day. Just tell your person you aren’t a big makeup person.

    I'm going to look how I always look. I don't wear makeup at all, and I won't start at the wedding!

    My day to day make up is minimal. I felt my trial was too much but my stylist assured me it would look good in pictures. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I wear nothing but chapstick everyday. I’ve had my makeup professionally done for both my sisters’ weddings and it was ok, but I definitely do not look like myself in one of the weddings bc of the eye makeup being too dark. I’m going for a natural look, maybe a little more done up, but not 100% sure how I want it yet. I have my trial next week to see.

    Most days all I wear is foundation and mascara. My wedding day I had everything because I wanted to feel like there was a noticeable difference. I stuck with neutral colors though, but had really big fake lashes and I loved them!

    I had airbrush make up and false eyelashes for the first time when I did my trial, and it was great! The lashes definitely were weird at first though.

    It doesn't look like too much to me! Make up looks good!

    Yes they were a bit hard to get use to but you will. I would say to make sure you have a little extra glue on your wedding day and someone that can help you in case they come loose like mine did. 🤣

    That's sounds like what I want to do. I have freckles and I want them to show too. Doing false eyelashes because I like the way they look.

    My trial went alright. The makeup was a bit heavy (wasn't airbrush) and my eyes were really intense. I think for the day I'm going to ask to go lighter and softer.

    On a day to day basis, I wear no makeup. If we go on a date, I'll wear minimal makeup (like foundation & blush & mascara). On our wedding day, I wore EVERYTHING from fake lashes to red lipstick to extensions. I wanted to feel fancy!

    I did my makeup myself and did a fairly natural look. I don’t wear much makeup (if any) on a daily basis so I did want to dress up a bit more but not too much or I wouldn’t look like myself.

    First pic is makeup how I usually do it on a regular day (when I do wear it), second is no makeup (which is often normal for me), and third is wedding obviously :p

    The main difference was I did a more intricate eyeshadow routine, and pretty much just went heavier than usual on everything else.

    I usually don't do much besides in my browns and an occasional mascara. The top left is me on a normal day, the other 3 are DIY makeup trials I've done. I'm not one for "natural" makeup if I'm gonna go through the effort of wearing it.
