I went for my hair and makeup trial today. And now I’m confused. I normally do my own make-up, eyeshadow and etc., and am very into eyeshadow. My favorite places to go shopping at theMAC store and Sephora, and may possibly own at least 1/2 of the MAC shadow colors, if not more. So going out on a daily basis with full eyemakeup (sans the lashes) is pretty normal for me (ie. browns/golds/purples/or pink eyeshadows, gel liner, mascara).
So, after my trial, the MUA did smokey brown/golds, invivual false lashes, airbrush makeup and etc., I thought it looked great. My FI had gone with me and thought it looked great as well. Very natural but yet smokey and nice, blends in well without looking overdone. My MUA is Sachiko, her website is: http://www.sachikohairmake.com
The thing is, I took some pics and sent it to my gf (but these pics were taken 7 hours with my iphone after I had been out all day). She told me the make-up looks plain and light. Another friend tells me the make-up makes my eyes look really big and looks great for wedding day make-up.
I guess my question is this: Should your make-up look natural and yet amplify, or should it look like I’m really going for the ‘made up’ look??

It all depends on your wedding and how you want to feel. Can you show us pictures of your MUA trial, your dress, your venue, and/or the theme/feel you’re going for? We might be better able to give you opinions with more info. Regardless, there is no one correct way to wear your makeup on your wedding day! It all depends on what you want and what works given everything else in your wedding.

I agree – if you post pictures, we can give you better and more useful opinions. I think what matters most is that YOU like the way your makeup looks. I wear pretty light makeup for everyday looks. For the e-pics and the wedding, I will want more makeup so it will last all day. I would assume that everyone has their wedding makeup done heavier because of the multitude of photos and the length of the day. I would definitely make sure that you’re comfortable with whatever you choose.

unfortunately i cant upload the pics from my camera to the site till tomorrow.. but i was lookng over the pics that i did have, and realized we were so into the hair trial that we didnt really focus on the eye make up. i’ll upload the pics as soon as i have them, but for now i have the somewhat crappy pics from my iphone.
the venue is: http://www.jerichoterrace.com
i also dont have the pics with me in the dress (its on my home desktop, i am currently at FI’s house with my laptop)
my theme colors are pink and gold (however i havent chosen the shade of pink yet) and i really dont know what ‘type’ of theme i’m going for, but everyone who’s seen my dresses and etc tell me it seems as though i’m leaning toward romantic.

I applied my eye makeup and blush a little darker than I normally would, if that helps?

I don’t normally wear ANY make-up, so I definitely wanted to look natural, (only better! Hehe). I also know one bride who went too dark with the smokey-eye look and now thinks she looks like a hooker in her wedding pictures.
I say go with the look YOU want. If you want natural yet amplified, go for it. If you want dramatic, that’s your choice. You’re the one who has to like the way you look on your big day and in wedding pictures ever-after. If your friend thinks it’s too plain and light, she can go more dramatic and dark on HER wedding day.
