If you’re wondering whether you should do a make-up trial or not – the answer in my mind is an absolutely YES! I wanted to see how the look would come out in photos prior to the special day, and doing a trial allows the flexibility to be able to make any changes/tweaks.
I was lucky enough to get a recommendation from my friend Mallory who got married a couple months earlier. She looked incredible on her wedding day and had only positive things to say, so I went with my gut and gave her girl a ring.
Donna, owner and lead artist of Amazing Face NJ, is one of a kind. Not only was she super quick to respond to my massive amounts of questions, but very thoughtful in her responses as well. I decided to secure a trial with her on the day of my bridal shower, that way I could test it out on others/gauge thoughts and not let a make-up session go to waste. She was bubbly and fun, so at first glance I knew we would get along great! We talked about what I envisioned my look to be, which for me was a slightly glammed up version of my natural self. I could not be more in love with how it ended up! Donna also did my mom’s make-up that day; mom didn’t want me to post her “before” photo – and as her loving daughter I must oblige :)
My Before/After PhotoIt is still crazy for me to see how my eyes popped and shined by simply adding on some color to my brows, lashes/mascara, and a subtle cat eye liner. I felt incredible afterwards and could not stop smiling, as you can see in the picture. I am lucky to have someone like Donna be by my side on my special day!
