I get married this year in September. I have a make up artist booked but I've not been happy with the trials. I come out with great eye makeup but my foundation has been cakey. I'm worried now for the day as I have my Mum booked and my bridesmaids too! I hate hurting anyone and don't want to cancel - I'd also be worried then about everyone else being booked! Help?! ????
Have you told the artist your concerns? I would talk to her as she may be able to change the brand of foundation or just change how much she puts on you. x
Hi I agree with Naomi speak to her and ask if she could try a different foundation or lessen the amount of finishing product on top of the foundation :)
This happened to me and I used my own foundation with no powder or bronzer over ur paying so go with exactly wat u want xxx
Talk to your mua. The last thing they want is an unhappy customer. If you dom't tell them, they can't put it right x
Ask the MUA to use your own foundation xxx
Just curious, if you didn't like the MUA why book her?
But like others have said if you don't tell them they can't rectify the issue
Talk to the makeup artist, they can use a thinner based foundation with a light weight powder. Ask for another trial
They will put foundation on thicker as it looks better on photo's and stays on all day. Have you taken photos after your trials to see how it turns up? Just have a talk with her babe, she won't mind if you have any complaints or concerns, she'll want to make it perfect for you. If you already have a foundation you use and like maybe just ask her to use that? No point in booking someone else so close, it's a lot of extra added stress for you.
Talk to her, explain your concerns and if needed book another trial, they won't be offended as they want to make sure your comfortable and happy with your make up. I had the same issue and was completely honest with her and she came up with different options and solutions
I would speak to her and say you loved the eye make however you felt the foundation was a little heavy for you. She may very well do another trial and then if it's the same find another one. Xx
Maybe suggest she does everything else but you would prefer to do your own foundation
Tell your makeup artist how you feel. It's your day! You have to be happy, and you're paying for a service, she has to expect bad feedback sometimes. Not everyone will like everything she does. I'm sure she would rather you tell her so it can be right on your day x
Try a make up artist that uses an airbrush foundation, it's so light and looks the same as liquid foundation. My mua is using this for my wedding, looked great after my trial x
I had trials with a few makeup artists before booking one and they all said the same thing....don't be concerned when you look in the mirror and think that the foundation is on heavy. When the pictures are taken it will look natural and flawless. I have also had a couple of makeover shoots and the makeup was also heavy looking until the pictures came back and it looked great. Get some pictures after another trial and see how it looks xx
Please do speak to your makeup artist and request a thinner application or an alternative product. You are also quite within your rights to request a retrial if you're not happy. I don't agree that applying a thicker foundation is necessary for wedding makeup. Correct application is essential and it will be seen not only on your photos but by your new husband and guests on the day. It's a huge confidence knock if you don't feel 'right' on the day. Good luck and I hope it goes well!
Tell them wat u like & wat u dont thats wat trails r for, thats the point of having them, it wont upset her just go for it they r used to it
Find a make up artist who uses an airbrush to apply foundation (I think that's the term - I'm not into make up and don't wear very much so I don't know the terms!) I had this and it's a very fine mist that's sprayed on your face so it looks a lot more natural.
Speak to the make up artist and see if she can do less foundation or change the formula she is using. My make up trial was disastrous so I'm now doing my own
I often find when I see ma work that people look the same and caked in make up. If you're really not happy do your own. Only us as an individual know what we like and how to do it.
