You look stunnng. I think that your natural brows aren’t really thicker near your nose and thin at the ends, as most shaped brows are, and the makeup artist was trying to give you that effect. Maybe have your brows shaped… this will eliminate the big brows and look great.

OMG, that sparkly headpiece!

I agree something with the brows is a bit off.  And I think the eyeshadow needs a little more blending.

You are beautiful, and I hate to say it but the overall look of hair + makeup reads a little beauty pageant to me.  I think it’s because both hair and makeup are “turned up to eleven”.  If it were me, I would tone one of them down a bit. 

However, what matters is that you love it.

Kimberly Wilson :  Beautiful! Super-glam, I love it. Don’t feel bad about asking her not to fill in your brows, there’s nothing offensive about that at all. You’re paying her to make you look how you want to look. Your brows are already healthy and full, she should have no feelings whatsoever if you say “can we just use a clear brow gel rather than filling them in?” 

And I love the hair too. I’d move the veil up just a touch so the hairpiece covers it (so it looks like it’s flowing from under the wreath). Not sure if that was your intention and just didn’t bother getting it perfect for the trial, or if you hadn’t considered it. It’s also fine as is but would look a bit more finished.

You look amazing!!! I’d add a touch more blush, but that’s it.

You look great! After my trial I realized that the eyeliner was a little too thick for me and that the eyeshadow colors were off. I just sent my make-up artist a nicely worded email (emphasizing what I did like and asking that those little adjustments were made for the big day.) She was fine about it.

Think about it this way, you’re the customer and paying her a lot of money. It’s in both of your best interests that you give her honest (but nicely worded) feedback! I have trouble being direct with someone in person or on the phone, so writing an email was much easier for me. Maybe that will work for you as well?

I’d wax my brows. You’ve got plenty of eyebrow for an awesome shape!
