do my own make up

hello lovely ladies,


Lately, I am thinking about doing my wedding make up myself. I am into make up and know what I like. I am afraid that I dont feel like myself, when someone els is doing it or I just dont like it. On the other hand I might be to nervous to work accurately and stay in the time frame what do you think? Anyone els planning to diy or did it and share experience?

I DIYed my makeup for my wedding for cost reasons, and it turned out well.  I just looked on Youtube for a tutorial, purchased the stuff I didn't already have, and practiced several times before the wedding.  I had no problem the day of with applying it (and I did part of the application in the car while my matron of honor was driving!).

I think it's totally up to you if you want to hire a MUA or not! Usually they have a trial to make sure you like what they are doing, and will fix whatever you tell them. I am hiring somebody b/c they know exactly how to contour things to look good in picture and what not. But many girls do their own and it turns out fab! (like moore807), good luck!!

Your concerns and feelings are more than valid.  I ended up doing my own because I ran out of money at the end of my budget.  Don't make the mistake of spending money on trial runs with other people.  Save the money for the honeymoon.  However, the pros can help you figure out what you want and can give you tips on how to do it.  Good luck!
