- Wedding: October 2013
Yesterday, FI and I attended the wedding of a good friend and I decided that was the perfect opportunity to do my trial beauty runs.
I was initally worried about my hair, because I reeeeeeally hate my hair because it does not grow any longer than just past my shoulders, and I wanted it down and long-looking with loose, wavy curls. My hair person exceeded my expectations of what my hair can do in that regard, so I’ll check that worry off my list!!!
My makeup on the other hand… it’s not that the girl did a bad job. I looked good, and she kept it neutral like I asked. My face looked photogenic.
I felt a little, ehhhh… I think it might be too much for me. I didn’t like any of the eyebrow filling, and I thought the foundation was a bit lot much. But all these girls, including one of my very honest friends, told me that I look great! So I left thinking that I just wasn’t used to it… and I should wear it through the night and try and get used to it.
But then, after I asked FI for his opinion after we got home from the wedding, he told me that it wasn’t me, and that he thinks I’m prettier with the more minimal makeup that I typically do myself. And that was the nail in the coffin — and all I needed to cancel the makeup portion.
$85 to learn that I do not want pro makeup. But I’m glad to learn that now!!!
