So I have had 3 trails! First one I ended up all orange and cakey. Second one I ended up with less makeup on then I do on a daily basis. So the third one with the second person I showed her what I wanted. Didn’t end up with that either, i showed it to her the first time I was there. She told me it wouldn’t be as heavy as it would be on the day. Which is why I went back the second time to see what it would look like and I told her that. Still didn’t get it. she applies the foundation really well but failed with the eyes. This is what I asked for and what i got. what do you think?m

Krit286: Need to see a pic with your eyes open in the same position as the model. If you have different shaped eyes it’s not going to look exactly the same no matter how good the MUA is.

Krit286: while the application looks relatively the same (I say that loosely), the outter corners of your eyes are much too light. The shadow/liner should be used to round out the outter corner, including the corner of the bottom lash line… Should be more of an almond shape, versus cat eye effect. The inspiration eyeliner is just a tad darker brown than the actual shadow, so you can’t see a definitive line where it was applied in comparison to the shadow (blends really well together). In yours, looks like she used a taupe colored shadow, and a much darker liner (maybe even in an entirely diff color family like gray/black?? Hard to tell from the pic). She also made the eyeliner way too thick, and extended it to the inner corner… Which is not what the inspiration pic shows. Maybe she was trying to be “less dramatic” than your inspiration pic? A lot of MUA do this, bc it’s what most brides want. It’s also why I did my own makeup. If that’s the case, you need to tell the MUA that you do *not* want a natural look and want the same drama that they see in the pic.

This does not look professionally done. Period.
I don’t know where you’re finding your MUAs but maybe fine one who has a Facebook page with a portfoilio

Anyway, she’s pretty far off here. To far off the entrust her with my wedding day. I’d go to MAC and see if you can find a MUA there… Someone who is not afraid to apply a lot of color.

I do not like the eyeliner, way to thick. She’s not worth going back to in my opinion. In your inspiration pic, the model has a shadow liner, blended to make a smokey eye, any goof make up artist knows how to do a smokey eye.

Krit286: Definitely need to see more pics! From what I can see though, I feel you should look for a different artist!

You mean Trial, not Trail. It helps if you took your photo to resemble the inspiration more in pose. The shadows look way too light and not packed on enough. Definitely look for someone else!

TBH, it’s pretty awful. Your inspiration photo shows a well blended smoky eye effect, with a layering of shadows. I don’t even know how to describe what this person did with her heavy handed eye liner technique. The two bear no resemblance to one another whatsoever.
You can sometimes find recommendations from top wedding venues, photographers, or other reputable vendors in your area or by calling their references. You can also try MUAs at high end department or makeup store counters or salons.

Have uploaded another photos for you all. I don’t think it looks anything like that. I told her that’s what I wanted. Once it was all done and I had seen it I said to her the eyeliner is a little thick and she said that’s what was in the photo. You could also stI’ll see the scarring on a my face which was another issue I brought up to her after the first one and the reason I went back for the second one was to get the full coverage. She does have a Facebook page and the photos look fine, my soon to be SiL recommended her said she was really good and that she has over 15 years experience!

Krit286: You need to find someone else. That is honestly horrible. I am not saying that to be mean, but the quality of work is not something that I would trust going into your wedding.

Krit286: The only thing I can say is, my trial looked fairly cakey to me, but we went to have our engagement photos done after. My skin was absolutely flawless! Not a bump, or a pimple(which is common occurance on my skin). Did you photograph the ‘cakey’ makeup? Just remember, what looks heavy in real, may actually be perfect behind the lense.
in terms of eyes, I agree with PP, the eyeliner looks a bit heavy handed and theres no eyeshadow outside the eyes(making that shadow). I guess just be forward and honest and say its not what you wanted.

Yeah…that’s like not even close. I would definitely look elsewhere

looks like she just threw the color on and didnt bother to blend. how are you finding these people? what i did was to search for #yourcitymua on instagram and look at their work then contact for prices and go from there.
