My makeup is seriously stressing me out, I cannot come to a decision and I need some help. Ok, so I had a makeup trial a few weeks ago for a friends wedding. I actually got a steal on this girl becuase she usually charges an additional $100 more. She did a great job, everything looked very natural. Which is what I want. But, when we were eating dinner at the rehearsal (about 7 hours after), I asked my friends at my table what they thought about my makeup, and they said that they couldn’t even tell I was wearing any other than my eyes. Now, that should have been what I wanted to hear, because I wanted to look natural. But, this made me freak out and feel like I wasn’t getting my moneys worth.. I mean I want to look natural but I also want my makeup to last all day. Anyways, the girl had recommended that I buy the powder for touchups, and the powder she recommended cost about $50.
My friend who was getting married had used an airbrush makeup artist. She looked great, but she was definatly wearing alot of makeup. But, her makeup looked great all through the day and night. So she sent me the information from her makeup artist. I emailed the artist about a week ago, and she just NOW responded. She is free on my day.
So now I don’t know what to do. I want to look great, and I don’t want to regret my makeup on the day of. But at this point, I feel like I have too many options. Maybe I should get the airbrush trial done and then decide… but then I would be throwing one $75 trial down the drain. If I’m going to be spending that much, I should probably just buy the powder and do touchups myself right? That way I get to keep the powder, right? But what if I can’t do the touchups as well as my makeup artist, and then I don’t end up looking great during the reception? And wouldn’t I need blush AND powder to do touchups… and then that just sounds like alot of work I didn’t plan on doing. I don’t wear much makeup, so if I’m getting my makeup done shouldn’t I get something a little more dramatic? But no, we have a daytime ceremony and I want to look natural, so why do I feel like I need more done? Please note, this is just my own insecurity that I need more makeup, everyone that I showed pictures to thought she did a great job, just that it rubbed off during the day (which of course nonairbrush makeup will do). I don’t know, I’m just so undecided and I only have a few weeks to decide… any words of advice would really be appreciated!
