Okay so I went for my makeup trial on Saturday...It looked good in the studio as there was poor lighting (which I didn't notice at the time) But when I left, I saw myself in a mirror and was disgusted!!!

I got home about an hour later and took these pictures....

I'm Shiney mad.gif

I'm freckily sad.gif

I look like shit mad.gif dry.gif sad.gif

When I looked closer, I had no foundation on my sides of my face along my jawline, she never used lipliner, and as I have stuff all shape, I thought liner would be a must.

I'm just really unhappy! I have 12 days to go and I don't know what to do....I do my own makeup better for work everyday and this woman is "supposed" to be a qualified proffessional!!!

Maybe have a ring round tomorrow Dannielle and see if anyone else is available?? huh.gif

Try not to stress just yet!!!! Could you go have another trial and explain to her what you weren't happy with?

Yeah, I would go for another trial but she is an hour away and I'm working everyday until next wednesday but then I have my hair colour appoint, and then we go to the island....

hmm...

so what kind of look were you after??

You makeup looks very natural but I can see what you mean about wanting perhaps a bit more coverage and maybe some colour in your cheeks.

Maybe you should just give her a call and explain your concerns. Could she come to you?? maybe someone else could book you in during the evening and come to your place??????

Yeah, I think I'm going to have to get up to Rocky again for another trial...I don't know when but I will have to try...I didn't want a natural look, I wanted smokey eyes, with a really good coverage, I like my make up really defined, and this is well totally not that....

I told her everything that I wanted and I thought she understood....

Just having a little freak out is all....

Thanks Kat, yeah I think that's a good idea...we have to go to a meeting with our photographer this week sometime, and they normally take pictures of the trial...Carl suggested the same thing, do my own make up and get them to take a picture and see if the coulouring etc is all okay.

I will take a picture tomorrow before work...

thanks for the suggestions ladies!

Well if you need any help I can do a step by step phototake of me doing Kelsi's eyes and load them for you!

The trick is to have the base right and even. Your powder doesnt need to be too heavy its needed to set the foundation.

Try not to use a lot of Black khol pencil either Dannielle, you have a very round face and dark colours around smaller eyes make them smaller...Use a pencil on the bottom but coloured shadows on the top and accentuate the outer edges to extensions of your shapes!

And yes to set your lips do your pencil, powder it, then pencil againa nd than use a lip brush with downward strokes to put on your colour or gloss.

I will have a go tomorrow and post the pics, you can tell me where I have gone wrong and hopefully where I have gone right...I do know to avoid heavy khol as I will get tiny eyes then....hmmm experimenting time!!! LOL

Thanks heaps!

I think it looks good, especially your foundation. But if you're not happy with it, definitely ring around.
I have freckles too and I don't think it's possible to cover them up. Mine were still showing through the make up after my trial. It's a pain hey? mad.gif
Sorry you weren't happy with it.

HOLY SHIT!!!
Was that by that woman that I recommended?????? ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif
If so I AM REALLY SORRY!!! Her work looked sooo much better on the clients of mine that I have seen! sad.gif That is horrible!!!!
I was going to ask when I saw the first pic if you had decided against the looking like you wear makeup and were going for the natural look now - just doesnt suit you - mainly cos you wear so much makeup all the time!!! AND OMG You hvae big shiny eyes right up to your eyebrows!!!!!
Again I am truly sorry - she is a stage makeup strist so you would assume (even though I have seen her work) that she would have quite a heavy technique!!!!

One more thing - use your grey pencils to line your eyes!! Even for the smokey look! You need eyelashes too!!! Not super huge like they were for Easter but something IYKWIM
