I saw the pictures, and I think you look cute.  I recently saw someone else suggest that women should wear white to make-up trials just to get an idea of what the makeup will look like with their dresses.  The makeup makes you look bright and cheery — not sick or tired a bit.  🙂

I think the makeup looks good!  In my opinion I wouldn’t go darker with the lips and cheeks – unless the eye shadow was a bit more natural (lighter colors).

If you liked your atrist I would definetly voice any concerns or changes to him/her.  If you still feel a bit leary you could always request a 2nd trial with the new changes applied.

Oh, Worcester- no disclaimers needed.  You are beautiful!  And I think your makeup looks very natural.  The only suggestion I might have (and I KNOW I’m saying this because I never wear lipstick) is that the lipstick tone might be a shade too dark/too glossy for me… but again, that’s because *I* would feel self-conscious.

I think if you felt confident in this person’s abilities, then you should go for it.  Again, you look fabulous! (If I get brave, I’ll share my makeup trial from this coming weekend!)

Very pretty!! I agree with doctorgirl that you might try a lighter shade of lipstick, or perhaps a dark shade of gloss. I wouldn’t go darker with the blush, I think this gives you just the right amount of color and you will probably be blushing naturally a lot on that day.

One thing I tried — just from my own experience, not because you necessarily need it — was fake eyelashes. I didn’t do them for my first trial but ended up trying them for my second, and I was amazed at how they made my eyes pop in photos.

Overall, though, a great trial.

I think it’s very pretty! My only suggestion would be one already mentioned by doctorgirl…the lipgloss may be a tad too glossy. But that’s my oppinion, the rest looks perfect for your skin tone!

Very pretty. I do have to agree not to go darker. You have a very natural look and in my opnion thats how wedding make up should be as it allows your natural beauty to show through.

No disclaimers necessary,  pretty lady!

I like the makeup, but I agree, maybe a bit more color on the cheeks, the lipcolor doesn’t need anything though. 

As for learning how to use and wear makeup, I’m new to it too, but I’ve discovered a website that is really helpful. It’s called makeupgeek. There are tons of tutorials, tips, info on good makeup you can ge for under $10. It’s fabulous. There are tons of different looks in the tutorials. She uses a lot of expensive makeups but you can just use whatever makeup you have or can find in your price range.

I think that’s a lovely look for a spring/summer outdoorsy type wedding.  I love it!  I’m not sure what kind of wedding you’re having (I’m relatively new here…maybe I should know that?), but my only suggestion is that if you’re having a glamorous, evening wedding you might want to go a little darker with the eyes.

You look gorgeous!

 BTW I love the lipstick, but I think it might be kinda glossy for pictures. If it’s glossy that means it’s not long-wearing…and it might come off earlier than you want. That being said…what was it? I think I want to try that color. It’s just so darn pretty on you!

My makeup artist used a coral…and I didn’t like it. I think berries are much more flattering.

Fake lashes are good, too, but I think they were overwhelming on my face. I am part asian and have smaller eyes, so my lady recommended the individual ones. If the big spidery legs one freak you out, that’s a nice glam option. I’ve been wearing them on the outer corners to work to practice with!
