Makeup at fitting

Did anybody wear makeup at your fitting, is that frowned upon trying on the dresses? I feel naked when I don't have any on.

    I wore makeup and had no issues. They're sample gowns, they're going to get makeup on them, it happens.

    I full on did my makeup when I tried on dresses. I wanted to see "the full look". I will also suggest doing your hair in a half up if you can so that if you want to try on veils with the dress they have a place to put the comb.

    Oh I definitely did! Same thing, I wanted to get the whole look. All my dresses were “step-in” anyway so no makeup smudged. I don’t think you’ll have any problems.

    I really never wear makeup, so I didn't. That being said, most the brides I saw in the salons had a full face of makeup & their hair done and looked really cute. I think it gives you more of an idea of what you'll look like the day of, because I did laugh a few times with my bare face & messy bun in this huge super fancy wedding gown.

    I made a point of having the best face for my fittings - as I'll be having makeup on "the day" so it's all part of the package. I don't doubt most do this, as I was careful - but spied the odd make up mark on many a sample

    You step into most of the dresses so there shouldn't be an issue with you getting makeup everywhere. I wore makeup to get a better idea of how I'd look... and of course to take some photos in the dress. lol

    I wore make up when I tried on dresses. One of the days I had a fitting after purchasing my dress, I did my hair and make up trial beforehand so I could see the full look.

    I’m not a big make up wearer but I actually went out of my way to make sure I had a little on when trying dresses on to get a more real impression of how they would look once I was all done up on the big day Smiley smile

    I wore makeup! It was fine, every dress I tried I had to step in so it was never around my face to transfer on to the dress. I think it helps to have at least a small amount so you get the vibe of how it could look on the day.

    I’ve heard just avoid red lips. Lipstick is harder to get off. If I wasn’t balancing fittings with work lunch breaks, I would go without makeup . But I’m going on work lunch breaks and leaving makeup on

    As someone who worked in a bridal salon, I didn't wear makeup. The fear of getting makeup on a dress that someone could eventually wear (sample sales) made my heart hurt. Plus, by not having my hair & makeup done, I wasn't fussing. I had my hair in a tight bun, some CC cream, a little blush, eyebrows and mascara. Definitely avoid lipstick

    I wore light makeup. I would stay away from any foundation, blush, or bronzer that transfers easily. If you have a transfer proof option though, go for it!
