Man guys, can I just say again how quickly time is flying?! Well, when it came to makeup...I had been set on going with this girl who had done my makeup a few times previously at Sephora. When I asked her if she did freelance makeup and she said yes I was super happy and decided to use her for my wedding makeup.
I was still set on this up until a few weeks ago when she became super bad about texting and responding back to me. I didn't originally want to do a trial because she has done my makeup before, but figured I might as well to make sure she can make sure to test out eye looks beforehand. Well when I tried setting up a trial with her, it was impossible. I had texted her 3 separate times spread out a week apart...she never responded! I got a little pissy at this because how unprofessional that she didn't respond. Then I started majorly freaking out at the possibility of her not showing up the morning of the wedding.
After venting to my coworker/bestie...she quickly advised I ditched this girl and got someone else. I seriously considered this and started doing research. It freaked me out because it was only 2 months until my wedding and anyone decent will definitely be booked! After getting availability and pricing from different people I finalized my girls. I ended up going with 2 different girls for my wedding day and night look. I wanted the girl who's doing my night look for the morning, but she isn't available.
I had both of my trials with the girls and am slightly displeased with the wedding day look, but LOVE my night look. I am planning on doing another trial for the day look and seeing if it's improved at all...fingers crossed!
Wedding (day) trial:
At first I didn't hate the look, but after really carefully examining the picture this just doesn't look like me. I know you are supposed to go full glam for your wedding, but this felt/looked caked on. Plus I hate how she did my under eye liner, I'm nixing that because
when if I cry, it'll look awful. Also the lip color in person looked more orange which was hideous and not what I wanted. Overall, I felt I looked chubbier than normal and just wasn't happy. The lady gave me the option to cancel altogether if I'm not happy and getting my deposit back which is nice, I've reached out to someone else just in case the 2nd trial doesn't work out.
Wedding (night) trial:
I was obsessing over my look guys! The makeup artist made me look natural yet glammed up. I loooove the eyes and the lip color is so pretty! The makeup didn't look caked on and felt like I wasn't wearing anything. After the trial I am super bummed she isn't available for the morning, but she's reached out to a friend to see if she's available for me that morning. I also kept this on for the entire day and it seriously didn't budge guys. I took a slight nap and freaked thinking the eyeliner and makeup would be so messed up, but I woke up and it was locked in place!!
Fingers crossed that next trial goes better than the first and if not fingers extra crossed that I find someone who can achieve what I want and doesn't cost an arm and a leg!!
