I'm doing my own makeup! I only wear eye makeup and maybe some lipstick if I'm feeling fancy, so I didn't like the idea of paying a professional to cake my face to the point I don't feel/look like myself anymore lol
If you're comfortable with your makeup skills, I would just DIY. Otherwise, a professional may be worth the money
I feel like I'm pretty decent at my everyday makeup, however, I also don't think my everyday look is HD photo ready. There's literally no other time in my life where I would spend that amount of money pampering myself, but it's my wedding day and I think I deserve to splurge.
I'm the same way and think it's a bit crazy to spend hundred on professional hair and makeup. My sister have been practicing makeup a ton lately and started her own social media account for it so she is doing my makeup and my best friend is doing my hair. I'm not super concerned about either because I want a very natural look and I have full trust in both of them.
Get it done professionally. Its worth it to have someone else doing your makeup because you'll be less stressed the morning of. I love makeup and feel like I'm fairly good to do my own. But I have days I come out looking flawless and then on important days I need to look good I can't get my makeup to act right! Its worth the cost and don't skip out on the trail because you need to see how the artist works.
I'm doing it on my own. But that's because makeup is one of my passions, I'm good at it, and know how to accentuate my features and what I do/don't like. I'm still considering getting it done, but most likely won't.
If you enjoy doing your own makeup, I would suggest doing it yourself! I couldn't fathom spending hundreds of dollars on something when I know I could do it myself. I personally love makeup and treated myself to some high-end makeup!
Like everything wedding-related, it was expensive but so worth it. I’m okay at hair & make-up but not anywhere close to a pro. No way I’d spend 1 1/2 years planning, $10K+ on the wedding, and NOT look fabulous. 👰🏼
I am a professional makeup artist and I'm going to hire someone. I am more than capable of doing my own makeup but frankly I want to be stress free and pampered. Pictures will last a lifetime and I want to look perfect. I know very well I'm going to be anxious that day and the last thing I want to worry about is my makeup.
