Wedding Day Look!

I have been spending way too much time on Pinterest lately looking at how I want to do my hair and makeup for the big day and this has got me thinking I need some help. Let me explain a little bit first.

I got my hair and makeup done for my engagement pics. I was open to whatever she wanted to do with my hair, I love different styles, and what she did looked so cool/different. But when it came to my makeup, the only recommendation I had was a "natural" look. I do not wear a lot of makeup regularly (thank you 18 years of dancing to scar me for life) and I didn't want to look too over the top for engagement pics. Here is my hair and makeup for engagement pics (ignore the typical bathroom mirror selfie LOL)

I don't think the picture really showcases how dark my eyes were. Keep in mind I told her I was wearing a light pink shirt. When I came home, and my FH saw me his reaction was "woah that's a lot of makeup". He did say I looked good, but he has never seen me in this much makeup. Is this "natural" and I am missing something, or did the woman who did my makeup go overboard.

What look are you hoping to achieve on your big day? Both hair and makeup! I love to see suggestions!

I also need some help in the makeup department because I have been out of this game for too long! LOL

    You do look beautiful but that's not natural whatsoever. Maybe consider doing another trial to try to get it right, or else you might have to find a new makeup artist. The hair looks so good tho!

    Love the hairstyle! That is so pretty.
    This wasn’t the makeup artist that I picked for my wedding just another one. So I’m going to bring my engagement pictures to the trial and show her to see what she says.

    It looks really good in the picture! I just was shocked when she thought that was light and natural lol. What you described is basically what I want. For sure keeping that info for her! Thanks Tori Smiley smile

    Lol yes! He met me after my long dance makeup stage so he’s not used to it! I have quite a few “natural” looks from Pinterest that I’m hoping she can do.
    I LOVE this look! This is so awesome

    I also told my hair/makeup artist I wanted a natural look for makeup so she did that and told me that it wouldn’t really show up in the pictures for my eye makeup so we did it a little heavier but it still looked natural in the photos. Check how it turned out in your engagement photos and if you like the look then use it for your wedding day look. Or see if she will do another trial but lighter with the eye makeup and be sure to take some sample photos with that.
    As for my hair and makeup like I said I did a natural look for makeup and this is the hair style I decided on (after 3 trials)

    One very important thing to keep in mind with makeup and photography - you will always have much heavier makeup on for photography in order for any of it to show up on camera. You also want to look at it in natural light versus bathroom light, because that will also wash it out and make it less 'heavy and dark'. Also - bathroom (and most indoor lights) are above the head, and that causes eyeshadow to appear darker than it would in natural/photography light because of the fact that our brows protrude slightly, and so cast a shadow over our eyelids.

    I think you look fantastic, I definitely think this falls in the realm of 'natural' for photography makeup, though slightly on the more dramatic eyes, but definitely not anything I would question, personally.

    These are my idea's of what I would like for my day, maybe not that exact hair style but I want something that is more pulled back but still down. This way its not to hot on my face but still thick look and curls of hair.wedding makeupWedding Day Look! 4wedding hairstyleWedding Day Look! 5

    I don't think it was too much, but it was definitely not what I would say is a natural look. I would think that if you are after a more natural look what I wear is some tinted BB cream and put translucent setting powder on top for foundation. Then I curl the lashes (mine are long but feel free to go with some light falsies), add a pinkish nude lip colour and some mascara!

    From there see what you would want to enhance a little more such as eyeshadow, blush, and bronzer.

    I do think the makeup is a little more than what most would consider "natural" but it's not too heavy either! You and your FH are probably not as used to you with makeup on. Maybe for the trial, ask your MUA if she can tone down the eye look a bit so you can compare.

    For me, I tend to go bold when I do wear makeup and I plan to bring along Pinterest inspo pics as well as pics with me with makeup I did so they know this is the level I'm trying to achieve.

    For the second go around, I am bringing pictures of myself at previous events, when I did my own makeup, and emphasizing that I want to look like myself. Also, put your foot down if you need to - my mUA is a highlighter/contour queen, and I personally don't like too much contouring, and really likes massive fake lashes, so this time, I'm telling her explicitly, no extra long lashes and no over the top contouring.

    Thank you! That is my fear 100%, that the trial is going to be a disaster and not what I want at all. I wouldn't say I am picky when it comes to makeup because honestly they are the experts and I am not. But I don't want to have TOO much on if you know what I mean.
    Fingers crossed for your second trial!

    I think it's definitely more than natural, but it's not too either - you look great! I have a lot of friends who are makeup artists and I just think their idea of what natural or minimal makeup is differs from the rest of us Smiley xd I'm going for a natural look too, and total disclosure, the trial was a bit of a disaster. I'm doing an emergency second trial on Friday, hoping it goes better this time.
