I lucked out and was able to schedule my hair and makeup trials this afternoon! Good news is I loved the style! Bad news is that I was a naughty hair client and washed my hair 6 hours before. Whoops. I had flyaways galore. I thought with my crazy oily hair we'd be ok but as my hairdresser (hereby referred to as "The Russian") said "clean hair no good." She demonstrated by putting her hands inches from my head and watching all the little stringy static flyaways jump up towards them. My bad! I also was not so sure about my flower...
The flower lays flat on the comb, but for this style, it should really go more perpendicular to it. You can really see the whole bottom of the flower! We tried repositioning it a ton of times and all it did was mess up my poof more- we couldn't find a way that looked 100%.
I don't know what to do... should I just save it for one of my summer celebrations and wear it like I wore it when I got it? It laid flatter on my head with that style.
And if I don't use it for the wedding, what should I do? I want a little something but smaller. I am so torn because I am IN LOVE with this fascinatior! We just didn't feel like it worked with the style. Please send me suggestions if you have them!
I then went to meet with Crystal from Beauty by Crystal for my makeup trial! She was really nice and fun to work with. We didn't do them today but I'll be wearing false lashes on wedding day.
I had a REALLY hard time seeing myself in lipstick! I was like, "who is that!?" This is the girl who wears chapstick exclusively. We went for a brighter pink first, but then toned it down to something a little more natural. I love the color but need to get used to wearing something besides Burt's Bees on there. You all saw my one and only lipstick-wearing picture at Halloween, so maybe I can get used to it?
(Yes, scary lighting, but we had trouble getting a good one because my camera is ghetttto!)
I took a phone snap while walking the dogs much later. I love how I looked! Yes, I need color on my lips (I need to work on it!) but I love the definition on my eyes and how well-groomed my brows look. I think natural light is so much more flattering!
Were you lucky enough to have your hair and makeup trials on the same day? And are you as lipstick-phobic as I am?
