I love the lipstick color and your hair is very nice. I would wear my hair that way if my neck wasn’t so long . The flower in the hair is so elegant. I think your eyes could pop a little more even if you do have big eyes!! I have them too and I think that’s my best feature!!

I think you look beautiful! One thing I’d recommend, though, is having a bit more volume at the top of your hairdo. PS: That hairpiece is awesome. 🙂

The makeup in your pictures is beautiful, natural, and accents your eyes 🙂 Maybe because it was so close to what you normally wear you didn’t have that “wow” moment you expected. My experience with wedding makeup has been that the eyes are dark and heavy, so the bride doesn’t look makeup-less in photographs, lips are natural, and the skin tone is evened out, all of which you have goin’ on. I think you look fabuluos 🙂

Ok, first of all, you are STUNNING!! Absolutely gorgeous! And I totally get the whole big reveal not being the way you wanted it. But take a deep breath, put the pictures away for at least 24 hours so you’re not obsessing, and come back and look later. You might like what you see! If not, make sure you communicate what you want to the makeup artist. She should work with you to give you exactly what you want.

Thank you guys. Seriously……..I know we all can freak out at one point or another and I guess this is just mine. I’m taking everyone’s advice……I’m going to have my hair done by my “normal” girl and then go from there. I’m going to request to my make up artist a little more “pop” to my eyes without sacrificing the elegance. I can’t thank you guys enough for helping me deal with this “meltdown”. LOL as stupid as it is. You guys are the best. I will post updates too! Thanks for not thinking i’m crazy!!!!!!!!!!

I think the makeup looks great! I think the hair needs a redo because it looks too plain IMO. It isn’t bad, but I think with your eyes, you need more oomph if that makes any scense . Just take a deep breath and relax, it’s just a trial. If you can, maybe look online for some pictures of the look you are trying to achieve, that may help the stylist figure out what you want rather than verbally telling her. Maybe when your stylist comes back you can schedule another trial. Good Luck and keep us posted!

Next time you go get your makeup or hair done…speak up!! It is you wedding day, you need to make sure you love and results and feel extra beautiful! Maybe you can take some “inspiration” pics with you next try.
I am not embarresed to say I went to 3 different makeup trials, with 3 different makeup artist before I found the WOW I was looking for! And the first trial I went to, I felt exactly how you felt! LOL
I am sure when you redo your hair with your regular hair girl, you will get the look you were going for!
Your makeup looks lovely (love the lip color as well), but I have to say I agree with your eyes needing something different. Your eyes are big and beautiful and I don’t think that makeup was selling them as such! And it may be the lighting, but it also appears that you need some extra undereye concelment and lightening. I say have her glam it up a bit!! or even try another makeup artist!
You are very pretty!!! There is no reason why someone shouldn’t be able to put makeup on you and you look in the mirror and feel completely gorgeous! : )

If you don’t like it there’s still time tell her to try 3 more hairstyles and makeup combos.

I think you look absolutely lovely! Your makeup really looks great and I love your hairpiece.

I think that… you are very very beauitful. I love the foundation and the lipstick but I think she could do better with maybe a pretty peachy blush and lighter on the eyes… maybe less eye liner on the bottom lid so it doesn’t look so dark?

Thanks girl, I know I need to bite the bullet and SAY SOMETHING! Monday I’m having my normal girl do my trial, at my HOUSE. Yes, she’s that wonderful. And I told her my feelings so she knows how to work with me! I agree, I should have that feeling! Thanks so much for your support, seriously!!!!!!! Total melt down= is improving LOL.
@superplannerbee – You’re SO RIGHT!!!
Thanks, hun! I LOVE the hairpiece. My bridesmaids got it for me. Love them so much 🙂
Thanks, Hun! YEs, that lighting is really poor and the shadows are horrible. Plus my bathroom is painted pink (Eekkkk- not by me) and it really creates a bad glow. She did a good job with the concealing part. I agree with the eyes. I took pictures with me before, but need to get some new ones! THanks so much bees!!!!!!!!!
SERIOUSLYYYYY- THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! Will post MORE trials after Monday! Wish me lucK! xo

I was also thinking false eyelashes might help you look different than your everyday look. That is something I worry about also, because I wear makeup every day and do a smokey eye on myself whenever I go out at night. I want wedding day makeup to be like.. DAMN. Not like, okay let’s go to the movies. I do have to say, I think the makeup in your pics is GORGEOUs and you have such a pretty smile that that’s what shows the most. So maybe just pop on some falsies with the makeup how it is? Good luck!

This makes me so sad because you are BEAUTIFUL! I don’t think they highlighted your features in the right way though–big eyes are a sign of beauty, your nose is not big at all, and you have a gorgeous smile!
I think a berry toned lip color would look great on you, the eyes could use a bit more drama but other than that you look awesome!
what styles are you thinking for your hair? Are you going to have another trial for that?

The make-up looks great to me, very elegant and light which I like. Honestly I would do something different with your hair. Something with the front doesn’t look right to me. It is far from being a SMASH 🙂 and you will look so beautiful on your wedding day so don’t worry- that’s exactly what trials are for, to see what we like and don’t like!
