I had no idea what to expect from my hair trial since I have very fine, thin hair. Here’s what the stylist came up with, based on my inspiration photos…
I’m not overly impressed with the makeup – I’m definitely going to ask for better coverage for the wedding, and my lips don’t look very good. It’s hard to see the eyes with my glasses, but she did two different looks: a purple, smoky eye and a lighter option. I think I’ll go with the lighter option, with maybe a little more liner than she used today. I also plan to get false lashes.
Sorry, this pic if blurry and gross but you can kind of see the two different eye options. The right is the purple smoky eye and the left is the lighter eye.

I love the sheen of your hair and the intricacy of the updo.
For your face shape though, it would be nice if your stylist could acheive a fuller look to your crown (I also have fine hair, so I know this isn’t easy).
I agree with you on the eye makeup, the lighter/browner eye is prettier.

@banana_anna: I know, right? I don’t know what the stylist did, but my hair never looks like that.

Gorgeous hair! How do you like the shade of lipstick?

I like the color of your lipstick. I think the tendrils in front by your face are a bit too long.

@MidwestBride2012: The lipstick is just ok. I wanted more a berry color, and I think what the makeup artist chose was too red. I actually have a long lasting berry lipcolor that I think is perfect. I may just see about wearing that for the wedding, assuming my makeup artist doesn’t get terribly offended!
@babylou: I agree. The stylist will most likely trim the front pieces for the wedding so the curls aren’t so ridiculously long. 🙂
I was surprised the makeup artist didn’t do anything with my brows because I tend to think they’re too light and I like them much better with a little brown shadow on them to darken them a bit.

Idon’t think the lipstick shade looks fantastic with the eye makeup. It’s just a little off, but it could always be the lighting, too. Definitely go with a shade you like and are comfortable with. It’s a great idea about the eyebrows. It’ll make your eyes pop more!
