- Wedding: May 2014
I went to my hair trial today. These are the inspiration pictures I showed her.
I really wanted a lot of hair in the front of my face…
And I really liked the back of this piture.
Here is how my hair ended up…
My bangs were completely covering one of my eyes, and I had like one or two curls in the front.
I hate when my ears are showing, and that’s why I want a lot of hair down on the sides and the front with just a small amount pulled up.
I think that back was pretty close to the picture I showed her. She said with a trial, they do the curls really quickly and they don’t make everything “tight” like they would on the wedding day. I also have hair extensions I am going to wear during the wedding, but she didn’t put them in for the trial. I think that would help a lot with the hair in the front. Idk though. So I was pretty upset with how my hair turned out. I had high hopes, however, for my makeup trial.
I got airbrushed makeup. Here was the inspiration picture:
I liked the “light” look of her cheeks and I loved the eyes. I wanted a darker lip color, though.
Here is what it turned out like…ignore my facial expression, I wasn’t happy with the makeup trial either. So I hated my hair and makeup which equaled a very upset and grumpy BakerBee. The thing is, the makeup actually looks good in the first pictures I took right after it was applied. It definitely did not look that good in person.
And here is what it looked like 5 hours later…I got close ups of my pores (sorry if it’s gross) and these weird white spots that didn’t seem to have any makeup on it. Those white spots were there right after she applied the makeup.
See all of the weird white spots? Surrounded by orange tint?! What the hell!
It’s hard to see in this picture…but there’s a white spot on that cheek
Here’s a better picture of it
Closeup of the other cheek+ how freaking huge my pores look.
Now I know I don’t have the best skin so I wasn’t expecting to look flawless, but it looked SO bad in person. My pores were huge, it “set” in a lot of wrinkles I didn’t even know I had, there were like little baby hairs on the sides of my cheeks that stood out, and after a couple hours it started to turn orange on my cheeks? Is that normal??
So I woke up today thinking I am going to get my hair done and have it look amazing…then my airbrushed makeup which I’ve heard only amazing things about…and I ended up wanting to cry because I looked SOOO bad. I do a better job at my makeup myself and I just don’t think my hair stylist understood what I wanted. Ugh. What do you bees think?? Should I splurge on Makeup Forever foundation and do my own makeup?
For reference, here is a picture of my “normal” makeup…it’s blurry because my iphone camera sucks!
