I love the lipstick color she chose for you, it looks so amazing with your skin tone.

i think you look very beautiful in these pictures if that helps!

hmmm i dont know what to say cause i think you look great. but a trial is just that…a trial…and obviously for you this was a trial of errors…now you know what you dont like…so time to make another appointment and do another trial and see how that goes! 🙂

 

Good luck!

I think your make-up is perfect, almost flawless but I can see what you mean.  You are stunning looking but perhaps the eyes went a little arwy.  Perhaps a touch too heavy.  Having said that you are really pretty and could get away with it.  Something softer might be better though.  This would be great for an evening event!

I was waiting for the mistake pictures…. did I not see them? Because in these two pictures you look pretty darn good. Maybe you’re having too high of expectations or something, and in that case I would be careful because when you have a dream look probably nothing will compare! I don’t wear makeup (ever!) let alone know how you’re supposed to put it on, but I think you look really great here, and I even love your post-tri hairdo 🙂

you are beautiful and i think your makeup looks great! i didnt do a trial and i was fortunate enough to looove how it turned out that day. maybe try and find some inspirations pics? another thing – you really really wont get the full look until that day – i hated my wedding dress and was terrified about how hair and makeup would turn out but believe me that day i felt so beautiful (and i ended up loving my dress)- i think that day you just have this glow about you and the happiness shines through and that in itself will make you feel beautiful. and like you said – your hairdresser works wonders so dont feel down just yet.

I don’t see what you’re seeing, you’re a stunner!

How about next time ask to try something different like false eyelashes for example to add a bit more drama than usual.

Lipstick color is gorge on you! I would go with some fake lashes and more volume in the hair though! It was just the first trial.. you will be ok 🙂

I agree with Karissa’s ideas. You look absolutely gorgeous. Just a few tweaks here and there and I’m sure you will feel as fabulous, wonderful, beautiful as you have always imagined!

you look gorgeous! and dont feel stupid about the breakdown. i think we as brides just want the day to be perfect and so we imagine things in our head and when it doesnt exactly fit our vision we freak out and think things will fall apart and everything is hopeless….trust me. i’ve had plenty of meltdowns. except instead of crying i usually just throw something haha. i still have to get my trial makeup and hair done :/ so i’ll probably have the same story as you.

I think it looks fine. Makes you look very natural, yet goes with the flow. Just set up another trial.

If she knows you hated it, she might not even charge you for the 2nd one. Smile

I get it (the feeling) — but I don’t see it in reality! 

For some reason, I am super picky about noses.  Probably because I have a prominent nose myself (though I like mine — a little nose would look weird on my face).  Your nose is lovely and elegant and your eyes are soft and dreamy.  I think this is a case of having blinders on. 

My first steady boyfriend, when I was all of 14 or 15, told me ONCE that he thought I had knobby knees.  Short skirts have been a struggle for me ever since!  I get compliments on my legs all the time, but I CAN’T see it ‘cuz I’m looking for the knobby knees! 

Seeing your absolutely lovely face puts it in perspective for me.  In my mind I have distorted my knees!  And YOU have distorted your face.

Now about the make up.  I think you’re right about one thing.  It does seem a little too “I could do THIS myself.”  What seems to missing for me is a little color on the eyes.  With your pretty brown, I’d go for a plumb color or maybe rosey pink.  Because you’re right — you need something different and special for your wedding day!

Lips and cheeks = perfect.

I hope you post any new trial…
