I have my makeup trial this weekend, I’ve never had my makeup done professionally before. What should I expect? Were you asked questions by the MUA or did they just do what they thought would suit you? Should I get a few pictures to give an idea on how I’d like to look?
Hi just say what you normally wear then you can tell her if you want it natural or more vibrant :)
I would get pictures of a simular look your going for. And tell them what you don't like too :)
I'd take pictures of how you normally do your make up with you because mine have always put more on than I would egg
I took pictures of what I was looking for and my MUA recreated the exact look with a few tweaks so it suited my facial features etc :-)
I showed mine some photos of what I liked and then just let her do her own thing. I absolutely loved what she did on the day x
Mine was great, she asked my MOH and I how we normally do our makeup and a few questions about our skincare routines. Then asked what we were wearing - I'm very fair skinned so she picked 'glowy' makeup in golds and corals to make sure my dress doesn't wash me out. My MOH is in dark blue so her makeup was much more bright and rosy. I did have pictures but didn't need them in the end as she got what I was after straight away :)
They'll ask what you want, and pictures will help, but I wouldn't knock suggestions either as they know what they're doing - ie I asked for brown natural colours, and she suggested more of a burgandy as it would make my eyes pop more plus it works with my colour scheme.
Hope goes well yourll look lovely mum would be so proud x
As everyone said take pictures with you, I have saved pins on pinterest of what I like.
My partners does it and she always says you need to be honest to male sure you get the right look you want for your wedding
So... I had my trial this weekend. I took a few pictures and explained what I wanted. At first I really didn't like how it looked but we make a few little changes and I was much happier. The only problem is, once I got home, a family member said she really didn't lke my make up and prefers when I do it myself. Now I feel really confused and worried I looked terrible. Has anyone else had this problem? I don't know if I should email the MUA and just say on the day that I want my make up a little softer?
