What was wrong with the 1st trial? Are there things that can be fixed/adjusted? Did you mention any of these things to her?

To me, unless there’s a personality clash or the make up artist totally misinterprets what you’ve asked for, the point of a trial is to test it out and make adjustments for your wedding day. At my trial, I wasn’t in love with the eyeshadow colors she chose, but she knew what she was doing and that was something easily fixable.

gloshlove:  Trials are meant for tweaking! Bees post trial photos on here all the time and for the most part, they have good MUAs that just need to tweak some minor details. 

If it’s just minor details, I would go back to one of the original MUAs. They usually cost less for a second trial to smooth out the details. 

If your first two trials were so horrible that the makeup quality was bad, the makeup didn’t last all day, and you looked like a hot mess, I’d say investing in a third trial is definitely an appropriate way to spend your money. You’ve got to love the way you look on your wedding day! It’s important to feel beautiful so you aren’t stressed out over it.

I had 3 make up hair trials before the wedding and I wasn’t completely happy with any of them.. So I picked the best one and we corrected things that I didn’t like.. For instance my eyebrow color wasn’t right so she used my eyebrow set instead with the proper color.. Bronzed and blush she used from my make up as well ..

gloshlove:  I’d go back to the first one and see how that goes. What you think “works” on your face could be very different from what they think works. They’re use to people wanting to change things or critique them. They know its your wedding day and that you want to look perfect so be honest with your likes and dislikes and they’ll help get your look perfect.

Being a make-up artist myself, I would not be offended at all if my client wanted to make adjustments. I had a bride tell me that the way I did her make-up on her lower lash line was a little bit too dark and kept apologizing. We tweaked it for the day and she loved it. Communication is key, if you don’t say what you don’t like you will never be truely happy, and being a bride, you should totally look how you want and feel your best!
