I want my wedding day make-up to be natural, with tones of champagne, browns, and pinks.  I plan on wearing eyelashes on the day of.  I have a make-up trial on Feb 16th March 3 (had to be postponed due to snow)

As with the hair above, when I went to the bridal show they were doing free make-up trials too.  They were quick trials tho.  Here is what the girl did:

Make up Inspirations photo 7  I really liked the foundation she used it was a liquid mineral and it was so light!  Because it was at a bridal show they did not really ask what we were visioning in terms of colors, they did their own thing to us.  The original lipstick and lipliner were to dark (for my taste) so I wiped it down a bit, and she used liquid eyeliner(which i hate) that came out so uneven!  But it was free and super quick.  It was a very prestigous well known salon so I guarantee that if I used her and went to a real trial I would have came out amazing and exactly what I wanted. but I can not afford to use them :(

UPDATE: I had my hair trial.  We tried a few things. (1-3) The first few pics we tried to do a design on top with the bump before she pinned it half up and tighter curls.  (4-6)The last few pics she just pulled the hair back(more of it) with teasing to create a small bump then pinned it and also brushed out the tight curls to see the difference.  Then we put the clip and veil in. 

I decided to do the tight curls in pic one (because it was fall and loosen as the night goes on) and do the poof classic half up in pic 4 and 5.

This is the only reason I have not done the Post- wedding chop.. PRE!!! I really want my hair on my wedding day to be half up, and half down with tight curls cascading down, and side swept bangs, with a poof to my half up like the pics seen below!

I have a hair trial with my hairdresser that I plan on using for the wedding on March 13th.  I am going to show her all these pics.. I definetly want tighter smaller sections of curls, and a more intricate design with the poof.  More pics to come after the trial!
