I figured I would get my hair and make up done for my engagement photos by the same company that will be doing it for my wedding – we did that yesterday. I am paying an arm and a leg for the wedding day and needless to say I think I was a bit disappointed.
It was hot yesterday, hot and humid – we did airbrush make up – within an hour of being outside my face looked “SHINY” – does this happen with all airbrush make up? or do I blame my skin for this?
Hair – disaster, apparently the stylist has 10 years of experience… and well.. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and it was.. I guess you can say.. as close as it was going to get.
I paid $180 for everything – hair make up and tip.. but I guess I’m considering trying to find someone else now…

If you weren’t happy with it, you definitely should try someone else!

Ugh! That sucks.
I second pics please, if you are comfortable sharing them.
I am so glad I did my own hair and makeup. My photog said that I did such a good job on my makeup, better than some brides who have it professionally done.
If you are not happy with it, try to find a new MOA and hair stylist. I would also recommend playing around with your own makeup in the meantime to learn what products stay on you for a while, what decreases shine, etc. On the other hand, if you wedding is in November….there is a much greater chance of it staying put all day.

I just recently had a very similar experience. I had airbrushing done too and i didnt find it lasted very long at all.
Do you have pics from the trial?

@sweetpeony: It wasn’t necessarily a trial as I wasn’t doing the hair style that I wanted for the wedding. This company has other stylists, I just feel like they gave me the crappiest of the crappiest for this appointment for my engagement photos. I just dont’ know if its my skin.. or the airbrush? Since before this I’ve never had airbrush before.
Pics – I’ve been attempting to email them to myself all morning.. and its just not going through since I have crappy service at work 🙁 once I have the picture I will post it. Also, I have some wrinkles, I felt like the airbrush made them stand out more? does that happen??? or was it just me?
