    I would give her your honest feedback from the trail. If you liked everything else then I would give it another shot with the eyes, and skip the falsies if you dont like them. If you arent used to wearing eyeliner, it can be really different/odd to see yourself wearing it. Also, like you said, it does need to be a tad bit overdone to see it in photographs. If anything, suggest a more brown color for the liner and have her smudge it into you lashline more- it will look more natural but definative. Good luck and just remember to be honest! I worked in the makeup industry for a few years and always appreciated honesty! Not everyone likes the same things on them!

    what about using individual lashes instead of the strip? They are easier to apply, will hold better, and definitely look more natural. Maybe you can ask her to try to just apply a few at the very outside of your eyes to make your eyes appear larger. If you don’t like even that at the next trial, I’d say skip the falsies. But a few, appropriately placed lashes will make the world of difference in your look so recommended giving individual lashes a shot.

    I def. think you should give her a second chance. It seems like all of the problems you had are fixable. Maybe you can encourage her to make the eyeliner a thinner line, which will look more natural while still giving you definition. It was probably hard for her to notice that the lashes weren’t on even since they weren’t on HER.

    And remember, you are going to look and unnatural in wedding makeup if you dont usually wear makeup. That’s expected. But before and after your next trial, I suggest having your FI take some pictures of you in natural light so you can see the difference the makeup will make in your wedding photos. What seems dark to you will not translate that dark in pictures. Also make sure you keep the makeup on after your trial for a period of time so you can get used to yourself wearing that much makeup. Good luck

    I had individual fake lashes and it was fine.  Brown eyeliner tends to be better if you don’t like a heavy look for your eyes.  I agree to be honest with her and if she doesn’t appear to be approachable then find someone else.

    it seems like she was receptive and since she had 20 great reviews, it means that the clients were probably very happy with the final results. I’d always advise people to try to work it out with the previous person and if it cannot be worked out, then go find a different artist~
