ok honest opinion from a makeup artist point of view.

go with gail the other one had no coverage and would look well crap in photos on the day.

Go with the Pink. I know you all say its heavy handed but you have to remember with photos in a white dress you need to draw attention to your eyes. and the pink will do it.

hope you are happy with it because i think she did a good job good coverage and its pretty flawless for a trial.

You look lovely!

I didn't like the pink, either. Not because it's pink (my favourite colour!) but because it was frosted - which I think will date more than the brown. The brown was great!

Are those your real eyelashes? I'd kill for lashes like that. *sigh*

blink.gif lol....yer...but she did a good job! i asked for falsies but she said - no - and she did a good job with her mascara. but i have really pale eyelashes so i will get them tinted before the big day i think.
woo-hoo i think i am going to book her. i am still totally torn over the pink or brown ... H2B likes the brown, he was right off the pink, mind you he isn't a person who likes pink anyway. But everyone seems to say for the photographs the pink will be nicer, hard call isnt it! biggrin.gif
thankyou girls, i appreciate your feedback.... has made me feel fairly confident in booking her cool.gif

I prefer the brown eyeshadow to the pink. The pink is a tad too frosty. Also if you get a little teary on your wedding day puffy eyes and pink eyeshadow could be a disaster!

Can I throw a spanner in the works and suggest you get an eyeshadow trial using lilac eyeshadow? You've got gorgeous blue eyes and lilac would look gorgeous!

How did your trial on Saturday go? Have been reading everyone's posts and I liked the brown too but, agreed with Allure's choice of Lilac.

Lilac / Violet does look great on blue eyes. Alternatively get her to use a different pink that's not frosted! Much prettier.

I love the makeup done by gail, and I think the pink is best. Remember the lighting will be different and you will be wearing all white, the pink will give u a better colour.

Also don't go to soft with your makeup, just think of the photos (why do you think modles wear so much makeup!). I had a friend who did this and and wasn't looking very special by the end of the night! huh.gif

Trust gail, if she has been doing this for 25 years she must be doing something right!

You look beautiful! Rachelle

Hi Melissa,

Love the pink makeup!! Looks beautiful. It's very soft & elegant on you. I don't hink it's over done at all. It's your wedding day, and you should go for something really feminine.
Just my thoughts.

PS. I adore the shape of your eyebrows
