Write to her to discuss how you feel post-trial. Let her know what you prefer and think this time. Something like you gone home, thought it through and decided you actually prefer a lighter, more natural makeup. Maybe do another trial with her?

biologybride2018 :  write her and tell her you thought she did a great job, but you realize now that you want a more natural look. Ask her if this is a look she does and if so, does she have any photos of natural work in her portfolio that she can show you. 

Its not a big deal, it’s just a matter of being direct and clear!

Just be honest with her. Bring in some inspiration makeup pictures, google natural wedding makeup and go from there. Its not her fault if you didn’t give her any idea about what you prefer.

I definitely think you should give her the feedback. If you didn’t give her much direction in what you are wanting, she probably went with standard bridal makeup, which tends to be a bit more bold than every day makeup for the sake of pictures. If she had good technique and you think the makeup was done well, she should be able to soften it up for your liking. Also, try and be a specific as possible. If you feel the eyeliner was too bold, let her know that. If the eyeshadow was too dark, as for a lighter pallet.
