@MochiBride:  That’s a tough decision–but if it were me, I’d go with whoever’s makeup was better.  Hair is great but your face is what will be the focal point of your photos.

Talk to your MUA and let her know your concerns, maybe you could provide a more suitable foundation and have her do another trial. This is a toughie:)

Do you have pics of the heavier makeup? I’m thinking it could just be that you arent used to it but it may actually be great for your wedding day therefore I may lean towards the 2nd one!

Normally I would say to go with the better makeup because that’s the focal point, but if your hair was that amazing then surely the MUA could tone down the thick makeup. Call and talk to him or her about your concerns about cakey makeup that cracked and then go from there. Good Luck! (:

Can you hire the makeup artist from team 1 and hairstylist from team 2?

did you discuss your concerns with each team? communication is key! when i did my trial, my mua wasnt putting on enough foundation (imo) lol to what i’m used to, so i spoke up and told her, and she amped it up to my liking.

I was doing a photo test a few years ago, and I hired a MUA to do my make-up. It was really caked on, and I was actually horrified by how heavy it was. However, she explained that it wears off over time so she does a little extra to make sure that it doesn’t fade out (I had a 2 hour drive to the photo test then had to wait a while). Maybe have the makeup done early and first and then the hair? That will give it time to fade out. It’s just a suggestion – don’t take it as gospel! 🙂
