I’d definitely speak up. You dont even necessarily need to get into details about how horrible it was, if you’re worried about hurting feelings. Simply state that you would feel much more comfortable having a trial with the same person who will actually be working on your wedding day. That’s the whole point!

Do it.

If you really don’t want the assistant to read it, call instead of email so you can be sure you are speaking to the owner.

id be so upset if I were you.. You paid for an experienced professional to do your trial, not a novice assistant. I’d ask for a refund if the owner doesn’t apologize profusely and schedule a free re do immediately.

i wouldn’t worry too much about the assistants feelings.. It’s not her fault, it’s 100% the owner or managers fault. She doesn’t have the experience yet, and honestly from what you described I wonder if she even has the appropriate education, and shouldn’t have been there unsupervised. You wouldn’t leave a prep cook to run the entire kitchen at a restaurant?

amanda1988 :  +1. OP, give the owner a call and talk to her directly. But I’m sure it’ll end up getting back to the assistant that you were unhappy anyway since I assume the owner will talk with her about it.

PS. Totally lol’d at the title of this thread!

I’d call her and let her know that the reason you wanted a trial in the first place was that so you could have a test run with the person who would actually be doing your makeup on your wedding day (aka her) and not a completely different person. I’d also let her know that you would have liked to know ahead of time that she wasn’t available that day so you could have rescheduled your trial for a different day. If she’s a good business owner, she’ll apologize and offer you another trial, and it goes without saying that you shouldn’t have to pay for it.

Honestly, she and her assistant both sound beyond unprofessional with the way they acted toward you, and I’d probably be looking for a new MUA in your shoes.

I would not be comfortable having a different person do my trial than the actual wedding. How is that a trial then?! I want to see how THAT PERSON is going to do my makeup. I would definitely call and express your concerns that it was a different person and turned out way differently than you had asked for.
