If the makeup trial went that bad, then I wouldn’t trust her on my wedding day if I were you.  What if she’s too busy on your wedding day when you have a schedule to keep?  Do you really want to pay for someone else to do your makeup if you’re going to spend time fixing it when she’s done?

A couple other options:

– Find a friend who always does her makeup well and do a trial with her.

– Sign up for “makeup lessons” at a salon.

– Pay someone from a nearby city to drive out and do a house call (can get expensive though).

It might be less rushed with her if she is concentrating on you and your BMs instead of having to rush around to different rooms and different people.  I think I would talk to her about how she behaved at the trail since it really isn’t appropriate for her to just leave you and not come back.

You might want to have someone come from nearby.  My makeup artist drove from an hour away for my makeup.  I only had my makeup done, not BMs though.

I think you need to bring this up.  Tell her you are really stressed about the timeline for the day of your wedding.  You are really concerned about time and want her opinion. 

Just to clarify, is this one person supposed to do the hair, makeup, and nails for you and your bridesmaids?  That is a lot for one person, like insane amount of work even if you had all day to do it. 

My salon has said they perfer to have a stylist dedicated to the bride on the day of.  They said the bride is typically the last one to get her hair done, and if the stylist runs late for whatever reason on the other girls, then in the end its the bride that gets stuck with less time. 

Ask the salon if she can recommend a friend to help the day of?  Can your BM’s do their own make up??
