Makeup you don't like can lead to a great trial

Bridal Trials can be stressful. I mean after all, this is your wedding day look we're talking about! But, let's pause right there. This is going to be one of the most fun parts of planning your wedding!! How often do you get your hair and makeup done? If you're a regular ol' person like me, probably not too often. This is your chance to get treated like a celebrity, go out to dinner after and take lots of selfies.

This is also your chance to meet your artist and chat about all of the fun details! Let's chat a bit about how makeup you hate can lead to an awesome trial and you looking and feeling your best yet.

What is a bridal trial?

A bridal trial is when you sit down with your artist about 2 months before your wedding and come up with a collaborative wedding day look for your makeup and hair! We go over different styles that you're interested in and what will be best for your wedding day. We take into consideration the season, the temperature, the location and of course, the dancing.

If you're stressing out about being prepared for your trial, make sure to check out our past blog post, How to rock your bridal trial! This should calm your nerves a bit.

How do I figure out what I like and don't like?

There are a few things to consider here! Let's start with how you feel comfortable most days of your life. Do you like to wear your hair down or do you like to wear your hair up and out of your face? Now, how about for special events? Do you get a headache when it is all up? Do you get annoyed when your dancing and your hair starts to get all sweaty?

Although your wedding day is going to be a seriously different kind of special event, you really don't want to go into the day feeling uncomfortable in any way. Whether that be your dress, your lipstick or your lashes. Just because you think a style looks absolutely gorgeous on a model on Instagram, doesn't mean that you will love it on yourself. You shouldn't have to worry about feeling uncomfortable or fidgeting with your style all day. So that means taking all of these little details into consideration.

Next, let's talk about past events. Have you gotten your makeup and hair done for a wedding previously? Was there something that you really didn't feel comfortable in? Make notes of these things as other friends are getting married and you'll be in the clear for your own wedding!

Bring Pictures.

This is so important! Perception is everything, especially in such an artistic field. Dark eyeshadow to you might be pretty neutral for the artist your working with. The level of intensity could change your look from being rustic and farm-girl to formal and chic.
