So I had my hair and makeup trial(s) awhile back but have taken so long to share with you because I’m not exactly sure how I feel about the results. Basically bees, I need HALP!
Based on rave WeddingWire reviews and their reasonable pricing, I scheduled an at home trial with Leanna from Daniela Rodriguez. The package was pretty cohesive and included hair and makeup trials, air brush foundation, and false eyelashes, but the real selling point was that the cost of extra services (hair and makeup for my mom and bridesmaids) was affordable relative to the other vendors I checked out. I’m leaving the choice to my bridesmaids as to whether they’d like to have their hair and make up done. Honestly, they’re all very competent when it comes to getting glam, but I wanted to give them an affordable option should they want the pros to take over.
We started with the makeup trial and I shared a few of my inspiration pictures with Leanna, which mostly focused on a smoky eye rather than a dramatic lip. Since we are having a winter evening wedding, I told her it was OK to go heavy with the eyeliner. (You can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can’t take the Jersey out of the girl.)
