Hey, Bees! I had my makeup trial yesterday, and my hair trial today! I would love your opinions on both. I have my bridal shower in a few hours, so I will be able to get some opinions from my family on my hair today.
I am that kind of person that hardly ever wears makeup or “does” my hair. So I would have to say that the first picture of me (hair not done, zero makeup) is what I look like about 95% of the time.
For the makeup, I wanted a really soft, glowing, natural look. I am wearing false lashes in the photo. My mom recommended that I added a touch more of blush to my cheeks, but overall she had no other suggestions. What do you guys think?
For my hair, I wanted a half up, half down hair style to wear with the comb that I have. I asked for softer waves/curls rather than tight curls. These pictures were taken right after the hair was styled, so the curls haven’t had time to relax. She said if they stay tight for the evening, we can go with a more relaxed wave on the day of. She just didn’t want the curls to fall out for today and wanted to see how well my hair held up. For the hair trial pictures, I did my own makeup at home for my bridal shower tonight (which may give you and idea of what I look like when I actually do wear makeup) so no need to critique that 😉
Me, without hair done or makeup just as a reference.
After makeup was done
Hair Trial. I am wearing the comb for the entire wedding, and the veil I will only wear for the ceremony. I did my makeup in these photos at home, so this is not makeup from yesterdays trial 😉
Here is my dress with the full picture of the veil to give you guys an idea of overall look 🙂

So beautiful! There is nothing I would change about that look at all.

Well, I certainly couldn’t identify a single thing I’d change about your make up, the hair is fabulous and suits your entire chosen style so elegantly. 100% gorgeous!

Oh my gosh thank you so much! I’ll be totally honest, going from never wearing makeup to having a full face of it yesterday was REALLY hard to get used to, so I was having a hard time figuring out if it looked alright since I’m just not used to seeing it that way haha

kcoast : I love both your hair and makeup! You’re naturally gorgeous, so I think the amount of makeup and how it’s done is just right. It accentuates you in a great way, but you still look like you!

kcoast : Totally understandable! I LOVE that even with more than you are used to, we can still see your gorgeous freckles, and it looks so incredibly nice but still natural at the same time. You are beautiful, and are going to look smashing on your wedding day!

bee1988canada : Aw thank you so much! That’s exactly what I kept telling the MUA, “I still want to look like myself!” Thank you!

MrsCassie : Thank you! I did NOT want to cover my freckles up at all. I was worried that airbrushing would make them disappear, and I was so relieved when they still popped through! 😀

Very beautiful and natural, your hair is pretty much what I’m planning to go with too!

You look lovely! I really love that you left your freckles visible! As a freckled face lady myself, it’s nice to see someone look beautiful without covering them up 😊
