- Wedding: March 2012
I’m a little frustrated right now. I just left my second makeup trial, and once again I HATE it. The first trial I had was an airbrush makeup trial, and while I liked the texture/look of the airbrush makeup, the girl sprayed the completely wrong shade on. My face was about 4 shades darker than my neck haha. That was ok though, because I’m having my wedding in a really small town and am planning on doing my own makeup anyway since there are no airbrush artists there, but my hairdresser (lives in a different city) wanted to do the airbrush for fun and didn’t charge me for it so I figured what the heck.
This time, I went to Sephora to try out the makeup forever HD foundation and to just get an entire face done to try to learn some tips, etc. I actually really like the foundation, but that’s about it. I showed the girl my inspiration picture (Carrie Underwood) and it’s like she didn’t even look at it. The best way I can describe it is that it didn’t look “professional.” It looked like a 13 year old tried to do their own makeup.
I don’t know, I guess I just needed to vent a little. At the end of the day, I’m doing my makeup myself anyway, but I was hoping to gain a little knowledge on sculpting techniques and all of that to make it look more “professional.” But what I keep running into is that I feel like it looks more professional when I do it myself! I guess I will just look up tutorials on youtube.
Every other makeup trial picture I see the girl always looks so beautiful! I can’t understand why I don’t get the same results. Has anyone else felt like this and been unhappy with their trials?
