I totally agree with this. I had a trial run and I can't tell you how many lipstick colors we went through! Also, having wearing the make-up for a few hours you can see what you don't like as the hours pass. She used something on me that made me look more shiny so on the wedding day I was able to tell her that and she didn't use it. I am glad I wasn't shiny on my wedding day lol. Also, she wrote down the colors she used so she could reproduce the same look on my wedding day. I was so stressed on my wedding day, I couldn't imagine that day being the first I would see my make-up artist!
Thanks for your input. I'm glad your wedding day turned out to be great!! I usually take pictures with my camera and the Brides as well to replicate the makeup on the day of. My website is eyedohairandmakeup.com I would appreciate any feedback from a bride's point of view!
