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.
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’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
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
