Just had my makeup trial done. I love how it came out and it will look wonderful in photos. But I can’t help think that people will come up to me and notice all the “cake” on my face.
Are any other girls feeling like this too?

Hmmm….so I don’t think makeup should look like cake….
Do you normally wear very little makeup and so wearing heavy makeup feels “weird” to you?
People will definately notice your makeup, that’s part of being dressed up! But if you feel it’s too much, I would talk to your makeup artist and ask them to lighten up or blend more.
However, I do know how you feel. Whenever I get dressed up and wear more makeup than normal, I feel like everyone notices it! Even though I’m sure they don’t 🙂

I have yet to embark on any makeup trial adventures, and I don’t know what to expect because I never wear makeup. Nada. None. Mascara MAYBE once a month.

@PinkPinstripes: I actually wear a good amount of makeup and I took a classes to learn it. However, bridal makeup is always a little more heavy. It needs to show in pictures and it needs to last all day. I hired my makeup instructor because she is really talented and has a lot of experience.
just wish the “cake” thing would pass.

If you don’t need incredibly heavy coverage, try asking them to use a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. You still get the color and minimal coverage without the cake!

@SoontobeMsL:I kinda feel like people expect a bride to be very “made up” so maybe it won’t be that noticible?
Did you go for airbrush makeup?

I’m very nervous about feeling and looking like I’m wearing “cake.” I normally just wear pressed powder to even out my color (no creamy stuff) so when I get my make up trial done, I’m just going to ask that my make up artist focus more on my eyes and just use my regular pressed powder for the rest of my face. I want to look made up but I’m not a fan of the caked on look. We’ll see how it works out.
Also, I have some freckles and I think my wedding pictures would look weird if my make up made my freckles totally disappear.
However I am having a day time wedding so maybe less make up in the daytime is ok.

@PinkPinstripes: I didn’t do airbrush. I haven’t tried that yet. I’m not sure if I trust it. haha
@jo.lee: Unfortunately, i have breakouts, dark undereye circles and uneveness in the tone of my skin. I need to cover as much as possible.
On the upside, she did some contouring which made my face look a little slimmer. Always a plus 🙂

I had airbrush done and I loved it! I don’t normally wear lots of make up so it was really important that I didn’t feel like it was caked on. Maybe you shoudl try it?

Your makeup artist doesn’t need to cake it on. Wedding makeup should feel comfortable. If you’re worried about how long it will last, you can try Urban Decay All Nighter Spray. That’s what my makeup artist used on me for my wedding day and it worked so well. I have oily skin and I used MAC Studio Fix powder makeup, as you can imagine, powder melts off faster than liquid, but the Urban Decay spray helped my makeup stay put for 15 hours 🙂
