You look gorgeous in both!  I love your hair in the second photo too.  I think you look really stunning.

First off you are very pretty but I think the lashes are too long/fake looking, bronzer or blush they used looks too orangey and just one color, highlight comes down too low on the cheek, brows are a little heavy handed and the front of them is very harsh.

Lips/eyeshadow/foundation look good though.

I think I prefer the hair in the first but the makup in the second – you look very pale, and rather over made-up to me in the first unless that’s the lighting/the look you want?

I like the hair in the first phot and the makeup in the second. I think together they’d look beautiful!

Hair in first, make up in second. Unless you like the gothic vampy look. ( note: I also have similar coloring and love a red lip… so take my comment with love. )

The liner is too heavy and the blush/bronzer isn’t done well. It’s like a splotch on your cheeks and the rest of your face is stark white. 

I’m super fair skinned like you and I know sometimes it’s hard for people to get the coloring right.

Just tell her the makeup is too much! If she is a professional, she will absolutely work with you to redo it to something you prefer! And she can absolutely just do your hair if you still don’t feel comfortable with the makeup!

LOVE the bold lip, Bee! I like your makeup in both but prefer the softer eye look in the second. (The main difference I see is your bottom eyeliner is much thicker/pronounced in the first one, which I personally think looks a bit harsh.) The contrast of your dark hair and beautiful skin will look stunning on your big day!

love the hair in 1st pic. Makeup is a little harsh – you are beautiful and the red lip is lovely, but your MUA didn’t apply it well – looks more of a dramatic theatre look.  2nd pick looks better and more “YOU” even though I don’t know you, if that makes sense, lol. 

You can definitely ask the MUA to only do your hair and/or tell her to tone down the makeup – she should understand if she is a professional.  Good luck Bee 😉

I had my hair professionally done but did my own makeup. The hair lady does also do wedding makeup but didn’t bat an eye when I said I wanted to do the makeup myself. I think they’re probably used to all sorts!

First, you’re beautiful!  And secondly, I prefer the 2nd look.  You also look more comfortable, though I understand the snapshot is just a moment in time.

A few things you could consider:

1. Doing it all yourself.  You seem talented with beauty and could easily pull it off.  This would depend on your timing, focus (not being pulled in different directions) the morning of, etc..

2. Your MUA is a professional, they should be able to take direction, what you like or don’t like, etc..  Also agree with PP re: undereye liner on first photo.  Did you do any other looks on your trial?  I thought they usually trialed 2-3 looks?

3. Again, not sure of your wedding time, you can make an appt at your salon or even drybar for your hair

4. Roll the dice, find another hair and makeup artist.  Check out their portfolio if they have a website.  Check their yelp reviews if they have any.
