Make-up Trial Part One

Just had my first makeup trial and it went great. The beautician, Elli, was very cooperative and receptive to my feedback. She loves what she does and is willing to have as many trials as I want till we get it right. Today we started out with shades of purple. Although I love the colors and the look, I'm going to wait to see more before committing. Here's some pics for you to see, although keep in mind that I took them myself with the iPhone :) Feedback welcome


And here's a close up of the eye makeup


So what do you ladies think? How many trials did it take before you knew what you wanted? 15 days to go!!!

I like it, but I also like the color purple. It's not too bright. If you wanted to tone down the color, maybe we can incorporate some silver or gold as well? But I think you look great!

Only 15 days? Wow! Exciting!

I like it! I would maybe ask her to add a little more highlighter underneath the eyebrow and to the inside corner of your eyes (in a shimmery color), but overall it's really a great look!

Bah I never did a make up trial. I kind of winged it. Oops.

You're so pretty though that it shouldn't be that hard - just be confident about what you want. I've heard from a lot of hair/make up artists that the more confident and direct a customer is the better it turns out.

It looks nice! My stylist got eveything right during the first trial, so I only did one. How exciting that you're so close to your day!

Pretty!! The color looks great with your skin tons :) I did my own make up and did maybe 2 "trials" where I specifically sat down and practiced what I would do on W day. When it came to actually doing it for real, I pretty much did what I'd practiced in my trials, although you can never exactly recreate something like that.

You are gorgeous and I LOVE the look!! I can't believe your wedding is in TWO WEEKS!!!!

I never did a makeup trial and ended up doing my own makeup day-of because the stylist on the island sucked. It worked out okay though. :)

I had 2 hair trials and one makeup trial but during the makeup trial she had to re-do my eye makeup 3 times. Fortunately on the wedding day it looked great.

I like the purple though maybe try adding a bit of gray tones to make it a tad more smokey. Mine was very similar with the purples/grays.

That looks gorgeous!! Your makeup looks beautiful!!
I did my own makeup so I guess I am not really helpful as far as trials are concerned. But I figure you go until you get the EXACT look you are going for :)

I like it...i think because you have huge brown eyes that earth tones would also look really good.

I did my own makeup a couple of times before the wedding...wedding day it turned out great!

So pretty!! It really opens up your beautiful eyes and the lips are great!! I can't wait to schedule and have hair/makeup trials!!

I had two trials and then the big day. We thought we needed certain colors to make my eyes pop but it worked better with a smoky eye (dark) which made my hazel stand out more :) I was glad I spent the money :)

I had 3 one at Mac and two at Bobby brown. The last Bobby brown trial was the deal sealer for me. My advice is to do as many trials as your heart desires.

Very nice! Love that shiny lip colour too.
