I had my hair/makeup trial three weeks ago. If you remember, I originally wanted something like this.

Well, come closer to the trial, I actually picked a hairstyle/look similar to this. I really loved the romantic look.

I was anxious to try it out since I had no idea how it would look or come together on Asian hair. I was a bit apprehensive coming to the trial, especially since I don’t normally get my hair and makeup done like this. It took a bit of time for Lypor to get the braid into the style, but I think it was worth it.
I really like the sweeping curls and romantic updo. There is still a little braid which I think gives it a nice final touch, but due to my hair color and hair thinness, it’s not as noticeable as the original inspiration—which is fine, but still a little disappointing.
I was also thrilled to know how well my hair can holds curls in.
After that, we did my makeup. I am not used to wearing makeup so I wanted something that was very understated and natural.
Some of my inspirations included images like:

This here is the final result.
On the left side (or my right eye), Lypor did a bolder more dramatic eye, while on the right side, she did a softer more natural look.
Now hive, since I know literally nothing about makeup, I wanted your opinion. What do you think?
When I look at these pictures, I just don’t see me. I’ve been sitting on these pictures for three weeks now, not really sure what to say about them—heck, I’m still not really sure what to say now. When I look at the pictures, objectively I think it’s pretty, but I am not registering that face as me and that bothers me. I can’t really pinpoint what it is about it either.
Am I crazy? I really want to love it, and I was hoping it would grow on me, but here I am weeks later, and I am still uncomfortable with how I look.
I know it is at least partially because I just never wear make up so it feels very different to me, but I’m worried that I will look back at our wedding pictures and I will think that it doesn’t look like me at all. So, what do I change? Should I change it? Thoughts?
