I’m so sorry that happened to you!!  You’re making me nervous for my trial next weekend.  The person was recommended to me by my planner, but her pictures seem kind of… not so great.  But I know so little about make-up, I can’t tell if I don’t like them because of the eyeshadow the bride requested or because of the actual professional’s skills.

I hope you didn’t book her!!  Are there any other options?

No, you’re not expecting too much or overreacting.  The professional you are paying to make you look perfect should be able to do your makeup better than you can.  I would give her a bad review and not have her for your wedding.  You say you’re obligated to pay her, but I can’t imagine that you have to pay her for your wedding if you don’t want her there.  Maybe just pay  her a little for the trial and then dump her.

You are so not overreacting. I just had a similar experience – booked a supposedly reputable pro who did the most awful job of my make up and then argued with me about the things I didn’t like. I told a friend who got married last month and she told me to find someone else because she had hated her make up on her wedding day and had to get it redone very last minute.

I think it’s easy to question yourself when a so called professional lets you down but you should feel nothing less than wow about your bridal make up. I paid for the trial though I wish I’d refused, have now booked someone else and am very glad Idid.

🙁 you poor thing! I know the feeling! I had a TERRIBLE trial with someone who seemed really nice but it just failed. She did the dab-y thing too!! Keep looking and you will find someone i did and now im completely happy 🙂

Do you have to pay her? What is her cancellation policy? It should be in the contract. My contract was less than 30 days notice is 20% balance owing but I am cancelling with 60 days notice so it should be fine. I was not happy either and I am going to do my own.
