    I haven’t done it, so I can make a call there, but I like the idea of having a makeup counter do it. Most of those places just require you to buy some products, which you’ll end up using anyway, so that’s the best middle ground to me.

    I did my own makeup recently for fall photos. My husband and I like to take some new ones every now and then to frame. 🙂

    I did my eyes a little darker in the first photo and had lipstick on. In the second photo I went alot lighter.

    Do it yourself to save that $… Cleanse and exfoliate the day prior, wake up a little earlier and take your time!  Powder is a great essential have on hand for photoshoots, too.  Make sure you do a trial run before!  Good luck, beautiful bee!

    I did my own for the day-after shoot (which was actually a month after.. haha)

    What I would have done differently: lined my eyebrows, worn lipstick.  It was like 8am so i forgot..  An important thing to remember is to go heavier than you would for a normal day. Espeically with blush.  Not TOO heavy, but more than you’d normally feel comfortable with.  I also did purple on my eyes, which is different from my norm.

    I uh, also did my own hair.  Hense the frizz :-/

    I did my own make-up for my Rock the Frock shoot but I had my hair done professionally and she helped me with the strip lashes.

    Here’s with it professionally done for the wedding day:

    And done myself for the RTF:

    For our engagement pictures I had my hair and makeup done for me. Our pictures were going for a more formal vibe and I figured getting dolled up and feeling pretty would help with the pictures. We had our pictures done on the 12th so still waiting to see!
