    Hiring a pro. I'm not good enough to do my makeup, and I wouldn't want that extra stress the morning of the wedding.

    Hiring a pro. I don't have the skill or the better quality products to do it myself.

    I really want to hire a pro for this. I can do my own makeup but I want it to look more on point if that makes sense. I'm just nervous about booking someone that I won't get to have a trial for since we won't be out to Vegas before the wedding.

    Doing my own! There wasn't an artist near enough to hire one without an outrageous travel fee and I feel way more confident after my trial two weekd ago! (Did my full face with my hair trial!)

    100% hiring a pro. I know next to nothing about doing my makeup. I'm a quick eyeliner and mascara and out the door.

    I hired a pro. I don't wear makeup at all so I needed a pro.

    Pro. I was planning to DIY but, as soon as my FSIL (a professional makeup artist for Mac) heard we were engaged she insisted that she do it. I trust her 100% and she is going to do a trial for me closer to the wedding so we can really work on perfecting my look.

    I hired a professional. When I do my makeup, it's a hit or miss. So I didn't want to chance it on the big day.

    Definitely a pro. I overthink everything and end up completely ruining my makeup! Not even risking engagement pictures on my own lol.

    I'm going with a pro on this. I trust my own hair and makeup skills on any other day, but I don't want to worry about messing it up on my wedding. Hiring a professional lets me relax a bit
