I have some pretty good makeup skills on my own so i was thinking that i would do my own makeup for my wedding, but then i decided that i would prefer to relax and let someone else do the work. So, i had my hair and makeup trial this weekend and i am not too sure about it. the hair i think looks pretty good, but the makeup i am not really sold. Other opinions would be appreciated, i will post pics of my DIY trial (need false lashes) and my professional trial. Is it all in my head that it wasnt that great?
Outdoor pics- professional trial
DIY trial- pics taken on my laptop camera

I’m at a loss. You look great in the first set of pics and great in the DIY pics. You are naturally really pretty and I love the way you played up your eyes!

@Lyndzo: I agree.
I love your professinal make up trial more outside than I do inside, but it could also be the lighting.
Your DIY make up looks amazing too though. I just feel like the professional one is more natural and wedding appropriate. AHH! Decisions.

You are super pretty and have beautiful skin! I love your hair in the trial pics. Looks absolutely perfect.
For makeup – I love the lip color from the trial. It’s very soft and looks great with your skin. But I like your DIY eye makeup better. I don’t care for the colors the MU used for your eyes. I think it’s too orange-y (that’s a word, I swear).

I also want to add, I love the lipstick you chose for the DIY. I like that is has a bit more pink to it 🙂

that first picture of you is gorgeous. i think your makeup looks great. i do know for a fact that when you are used to having your makeup one way and someone else does it differently, it’s hard to accept. trust me, the mua did a great job. one of the better pro pics i’ve seen.
that being said, your diy makeup is good too. it’s hard to judge when the camera for you diy pics is not as good as the others.
personally, if it’s in your budget i would have myself pampered the day of the wedding.

Ya, i think the hair is great especially considering my hair is just below my chin and she added extensions in.
Do you think that the pro makeup would be better if i had her do less “warm” colours. I was thinking some soft purples, and are more pink blush….

I dont like the eyes from the professional but the rest is AMAZING and looks great on your skin (you must have a flawless base) the eyes just seem too orange or blurry or something I cant quite put my finger on it. Your hair looks beautiful. I would just maybe change the colour of the shadow….other than that your look is great IMO

@sweetpeony: Yes, I think the cooler shades look best on you. The colors in the professional trial look great but I like the DIY colors the best. I would ask the make up artist if they could use similar colors to the DIY photos.

I think your makeup (especially the eyes) looks way better in the DIY pictures than the pro ones!
