Wedding Day Makeup


After getting my make up done by a professional on my friend's wedding day, I was left with that dreaded "I don't look like myself" feeling.  Don't get me wrong, I was ecstatic to have my make up done - what girl doesn't want to be pampered? 

But as I looked in the mirror and saw a stranger looking back at me, I realized that it wasn't her fault that I didn't look like me - only I knew how to do my makeup so I looked and felt like myself.  After a few quick touch ups, I felt better, I felt like me.

Crisis resolved!

I've had a similar experience but with hair instead of makeup! I just couldn't deal with how my hair was done for my friends wedding but ended up just leaving it and trying not to focus on it for the night

I hated my destination second reception makeup! She looked at me and tsked tsked my hooded lids and said I'm lucky she can do magic on my lids! I never trialled her, going with instead a cousin's recommendation cause her makeup look was exactly what I wanted for mine. Till this day I wonder if she sabotaged me by giving me the wrong reference. It just turned out to be an entirely different outcome. Thank goodness I had a first reception that I was already really happy with.
