Here goes. This is what I looked like after my first makeup trial.
DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation as my base. So I'm probably also suffering from what every bride who typically doesn't wear makeup suffers from - fear of looking like a clown or not me. Besides the foundation - I think the blush and the lipstick are too much.
Tonight I have my next makeup trial. This trial is with another makeup artist (MUA) - one who made me up last year for our friends double wedding.
So I pulled looks that routinely catch my attention when I'm flipping through magazines at the salon.
What I like about the looks is the pale lipsticks (top two photos), the touch of pale blush (top two photos, bottom right photo), the shadowing of the outside edge of the eye (left two photos), and lighter shadow near the nose that gradually moves to the darker edge (left two photos, bottom right photo).
What I like about the top two looks is that the blush isn't overwhelming and much more natural. The two bottom looks caught my attention for the paler blush with pale lipsticks - the eyes are too smoky.
I also pulled looks that I dislike and totally could not imagine on me. Here those looks are:
Hopefully these images give the MUA a better idea of what I'd like for our wedding. Basically I want to feel like me - the me cubes fell in love with. (Maybe this next admission makes me a bad bride but I love the makeup I wore for our playa wedding - none. You can see what my face looked like in the recap of me getting ready.)
Did you struggle with getting your makeup right?
