Had my hair and make-up trial today. I asked for a “natural” look and I wanted soft waves with my hair half up and half down. I am wearing Maggie Sottero Bernadette and wanted a soft, romantic look to go with the dress. I will be wearing a veil for the ceremony only and a little flower or something on my right hand side (side away from the part for balance) during the reception…and earrings too with about a 1″ drop.
I am really happy with the overall look. My only concern is the lip color. The first gloss that she put on was a sticky, but pretty pink. I asked for something less “wet” looking and the color in the salon pics was it but in the last close up pic it had already worn off so I applied a shimmery champage color that I had at home. This is what I will tell her as I give her my feedback for the big day. Thoughts? Opinions? Thanks!

I think your makeup in the last pic is perfect…
I love the idea you have with your hair but it just needs that little bit more to it (slighty tighter curl- maybe?)..I think it will look rather “flat” by the end of the night…Other than that I think your look is spot on…
P.S you have the most awesome eyes 🙂

@russian_doll: Thanks for the feedback! And for the nice comment 🙂 I can totally see that with the hair. The curl was so soft because I didnt want it to be curly, I wanted more of a wave. So maybe a tighter curl will look better? Other suggestions – more height inthe front or lift the sides up near my ears?

Love the makeup!! I agree with PP, hair needs a little more finesse. Tighter curls? More height in the front? Are you wearing anything in your hair?

I like the makeup, I like the lip colour but I’m not in love with it….not sure whether to go more pinkish/soft/rosy, can’t put my finger on it.
The hair needs more polish, more volume I think. I like natural looking hair, but I think right now it’s just a bit too “every day” and will fall flat by the evening.

@MsAmandaAnn: For the ceremony I will be wearing a veil, positioned at the crown, sory of where the hair is bobby pinned at the back. For the reception, some little accessory, like am ivory cabbage rose or swarovki blingy thing pinned to my right side. I think maybe a little more volume and tighter curls? She said the look will look more polished the day of. Honestly, I am OK with it now but the more and more I critique and stare I think of ways to improve it! LOL
Now onto the make-up – the eye shadow has a shimmer. Do you think this will be a problem? Thinking of photography, but you would think this would be taken into consideration for Bridal makeup? And my second thought – should I have a hint of color in the eyshadow (lavendar?) as opposed to a more neutral beige/champagne color?
Thank you! (thinking I’m slowly becoming more and more detail obsessed!)
