Today I had my wedding hair and make up trial. If you don't like girly posts or pictures of me, then this really isn't the post for you. There are a lot of pictures of me. Well, it's my blog, so why not?! I took most of them myself as well!
I would like to know your thoughts though!
SO! I had to go quite a long way for my hair and make up trial, but hoping it's worth it!
This is the after:
CHECK OUT THE SCOUSE BROWS!
She used air-brush HD make up which sprays on and allegedly lasts all day. I will best testing that theory!
do you guys think?! I have to wear more make up than usual for the
wedding to show up in pictures and look flawless etc. I'm not convinced
on the brows...not in this pic anyway.
After the 3
hours in the salon, I had to make my way back over to the right side of
the water to go get ready for a night on the town. Because I wasn't
going to waste this face at home ironing on a Saturday night!
I had just missed the train. I had to wait just under an hour for the next one. In this dingy shelter.
I think I'm glad I don't have a sense of smell. This place probably did not smell so good.
must have looked riduculous sat in that disgusting shelter with my face
and hair all done up! Especially at 2.30pm on a Saturday afternoon!
Still, the make up looks nice in the sunlight, right? Less...waxwork...than the pics in the salon, do you think?
Yes, the hair has already dropped but I think it's acceptable.
I eventually got back to Liverpool, I went over to Ms Gray's house to
have a cuppa and a natter before getting dressed up to go out. I allowed
her to dress me for the evening. I was a little afraid. To be fair, she
chose a dress that I would not have ever chosen to wear, but with
heels, a skinny belt and my black jacket, I walked with confidence...or
as much as I could without showing the whole of Liverpool City Centre my
backside. It is quite a short dress.
No pics taken of that. Phew.
My lovely KoKo. She's writing an original piece for the wedding reading. I'm both excited and scared in equal proportions.
went for Italian tapas at Pesto, and ordered probably 1 dish too many.
Enjoyed a jug of cocktail called Lecca Lecca (which apparently is
italian for lollipop) and then moved on to a bar called Palm Sugar. It's
not a typical KoKo and CaCa drinking spot, but we were all pretty so
why not go for a G&T or two.
It wasn't what we
expected. Fairly nice evening. Both of us wanted to stay out and go
dancing, but both of us where shattered! So we both got taxis and were
home by midnight!
How did the make up and hair last, I hear you ask?
I am, in the bathroom mirror after I got home. I think the answer is
pretty well! I could see in the mirror that it was starting to come off,
but in the pictures you can't tell. I had re-applied darker lipstick in
the evening, because I wasn't convinced of the colour my make up artist
had used, but overall I think it's a winner!
to put some thought into the hair though, as I was conscious all day
that it was slipping down. I will need to email them once they send my
quote with some queries as to what we can do different so it's more
Any thoughts, readers?
had any douby as to how much make up was on my face at bedtime, see the
make up removers utilised in the cleansing of my face!
Attractive, huh?! I think there might have been one more after that!
And in bringing the hair down, I collected one or two pins out of my mane...
No wonder my hair was slipping - how can these few hold up all my crazy wig?! I have heavy hair!
So there you go. Beauty stuff kinda done! Which is nice.
Quite fancy another gin and tonic now...
