    I think the hair will look closer to what you want with the extensions and the tighter curls.  With hair, I’ve found (from getting a LOT of perms) that what you want your hair to look like…rarely comes out that EXACT way.  Your hair texture and length and thickness comes into play a lot with how it’s gonna look.  I definitely don’t think she did the front quite like the picture.  That big chunk does cover your whole eye and it would be like that in pics.  You’d probably be constantly pushing it out of your face…I know I would.  Maybe see if she can somehow get that out of your face. I would skip the airbrushing.  The orange tint and spots would freak me out too!  And you want makeup that’s gonna last all night….that obviously doesn’t.  And besides, you do your own makeup very well! 

    This is why we do trials! To decide if you like it!

    Aw, you’re so pretty… 

    Anyway, I think the hair would be good if they changed the things you didn’t like. The makeup, though… I think you could do it really nicely yourself.  What if you go to Senora and get their makeup application that they will do for you if you spend 50.00… You could get your MUFE makeup and maybe some ideas of makeup that is closer to what you have in mind.

    BakerBee16:  I recently went to Sephora to have my makeup done for engagement photos and I was hoping they’d use MUFE but they used a Benefit foundation with Too Faced primer. It lasted a really long time and looked nice but I’m still curious about the MUFE so I might go again…

    Ugh, I feel you on the bad hair/makeup trial…except yours looks WAY better than mine did, LOL!  

    I think your hairstylist did an ok job…its not horrible, but she didn’t exactly recreate your desired look…its like it is half-way there.  I would definitely talk to her and give her more direction…AND maybe go in for a 2nd hair trial to see if she can nail it closer to the look you want.  Perhaps the direction of wanting “hair in your face” confused her, and that is why she did so much of your bangs over your eyes??

    The makeup on the other hand…that is a piss-poor airbrush job.  The way it came off (in patches no less!!) a few hours later is especially concerning, as good airbrush makeup is supposed to last a really long time.   I would do your own makeup or hunt down a different MUA if you don’t want to do it yourself on your wedding day.  

    Bottom line, if you are unhappy with the work done post-trial, listen to your misgivings. I wish I could have switched out my hair person for someone different after my hair trial. She did a miserable job at the trial, and botched a few different hairdos pretty badly on the wedding day.

    I’m sorry you had a bad experience! I had a bad trial my first time too and am changing my hair and makeup artists as a result. Good news is that you do your own makeup beautifully!

    I’m a bit of a makeup addict so a couple of tidbits for you – I use MUFE for daily wear and it’s great and will work if you decide to go that route (with a good primer and setting spray). If you can splurge a teeny bit more, consider Dior Airflash http://www.sephora.com/diorskin-airflash-spray-foundation-P104914. It gives you an airbrushed look but you can blend and contour easily with it. It also lasts longer in my experience. It may be worth asking them to show you both at the beauty bar at Sephora tomorrow. 

    You’re beautiful so you will look amazing either way though. 🙂

    BakerBee16:  I definitely think that you threw the hair stylist off by saying you like hair in your face, so that can be changed the day of, but I think it’s silly for her to basically say they do a half ass job when it’s a trial… because that’s the whole point of a trial.. to see if it’ll look right the day of! I think the pictures you like are of girls who have almost double the amount of hair you want, so if you have extentions in that’ll most likely fix your problem. The make up seems like it wasn’t put on evenly… I’d be disappointed with the white spots too! When I booked my wedding make up and asked for air brush, the guy booking it asked if any of the girls had acne or bumps because air brush usually isn’t the best for that. Not saying that you have bad skin because you’re absolutely beautiful, but I think we all want the best amount of coverage! I hope you end up finding your perfect look!

    BakerBee16:  Aw man…I’m sorry your trials were a let down.

    Your hair trial looked good from the back…but not so much in the front. It looked flat and nothing like your inspiration photo. But I know if your adding extensions for your big day…that alone will add volume and give you more coverage in the front. However …she still should of done a better job in the front. It’s like she gave it effort in the back and then said screw it when doing the front.

    Your make up trial from the looks of it was deffinately not done right. I would find another MUA or if you feel confident do it yourself. I have heard good things from airbrushing too…but it dosnt look like that MUA knew how to do it. It shouldn’t look orange or become patchy after only 5 hrs. I mean your wedding will prob run about that length or longer. Did she use a primer before putting the make up on? Im not sure if they do with airbrushing but I know primer makes a world of difference on me when I put my make up on. It makes it last longer and look more even.

    Also I love MUFE! I just discovered it and I think it’s one of the best make ups you can buy. My skin isn’t the best and I feel flawless after using it. It’s the only make up I found to look natural on me. 

    Which ever route you go I hope you feel beautiful on your big day! Good luck!

    BakerBee16:  sorry ..stupid thing posted twice…but a side note on primer…..I use smashbox primer and i love it! Works well with MUFE powder foundation…and I also use MUFE liquid foundation for covering little imperfections like blemishes and acne scars…it comes in a little tube….all three together with a little smashbox blush is awsome..I highly recommend those products!

    I have never posted on a make-up/ hair thread before…  But, I read your post and wanted to at least try to give some helpful information.  Look at the web site called Model Mayhem.  In the browse section look for make-up artists/  in your area.  They have images and contact information on their profiles.  I used to be a professional photographer thats how I know about this.
