Step 1: Give Yourself Time
Trials can take up to two hours, so make sure you have the time to dedicate to that. Also give yourself a few months before your wedding to go on your trial. We recommend getting your trial done the day of your bridal shower, bachelorette party, or even your engagement photos. This way, you can see how it photographs, how it feels, and looks through out the day.
Step 2: Bring Photos + An Open Mind
While a smoky eye, and dramatic winged liner is beautiful this look is not suited for everyone. Keep an open mind. A lot of photos seen on pinterest and instagram are great for inspiration. However, what looks good on someone else, may not suit your unique features and coloring. We recommend you bring photos of models that are close to your skin tone, hair color and eye color. You need to be flexible enough to work with what you have.
Step 3: Lashes
I encourage all of my brides to wear false lashes on their wedding day. It is a simple touch that makes you look fresh in photos. If you have never worn false eyelashes before, having them on during your trial will give you the opportunity to see how they feel, and learn how to remove them properly so you aren’t overwhelmed or bothered by them on your wedding day.
Step 4: You Should Look Like An Amazing Version of Yourself
Step 5: Cheaper Does Not = Better
You ever here that term “You get what you pay for”. All is true here. What you look like is going to be captured forever, so you want to make sure you look your best.
Step 6: Timeline
Getting your makeup done plays a very important role in the timeline for your wedding day. It is normally a bride’s first stop for the day; and if you end up running late there, it pushes everything back, like a domino effect. Make sure you share your timeline with your artist and work backwards from there.
Lastly, have fun and happy planning!
