I’m thinking about doing my own make up for the wedding day. As long as you’re comfortable with make up and understand that you need a bit more of a heavy hand due to pictures, you should be ok. You should post pics for us after you do it! As for being nervous the day of, I find that putting on make up can be very calming. Maybe do it alone in a different room than where your BMs are getting ready so there isn’t as much commotion. Just you and your photographer. Good luck on your trial run!

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!  I am planning to do my own hair.  I have someone else doing my make-up.  I am using a bridesmaid to help me solidify the look.  I do it myself everyday and for every important function I have ever been too, so I’m sure it will be fine.  However, I trust a bridesmaid to make sure I don’t like a mess!

I can’t stand having people play with my face, so I’m definitely doing my own make-up.  I’ll probably have someone else do my hair, though, because I’m hopeless with that.  My plan is to go to Sephora and have someone walk me through make-up products, tips, and tricks, and then to practice a LOT before the big day!  I know you don’t have much time before your wedding, but I think if you practice at least once each day you’ll be fine, and look gorgeous.  Good luck!!!

I personally never like the outcome of having other people do my makeup, so that will be something I DIY for sure. As for hair, I suck at it but one of my BMs is great at is so she’ll do it for me.

I think it’s a great decision! Good luck!

I am really nervous about this as well. I just can’t seem to find anyone decent enough to do my hair and makeup, so I am trying to learn how to do my makeup now and having a friend do it for me up there. (Hopefully I can find someone good and ship them into my destination locale). All so pricey  but you can’t ignore it, ya know?

You will definetly have to show us the outcome today after your trial run! If you don’t like how other people do it and you know how you want it then  your not a psycho for doing it yourself! you want to feel beautiful, and if someone else doing it just doesnt do it right then more power to you!

good luck! and hope everything works out perfectly

I’m in the same boat as you–hate when others do it, always end up changing what they do, so I’m doing it myself. Just practice, practcie, practice. It sounds like you know what you want–a slightly fancier version of your everyday self, which is really nice and classy! You’ll do great remembering to keep a light hand and not go overboard. Good luck! Congrats!!

I’m considering doing my own make-up as well.  I wouldn’t do my own hair, but that’s just because I’m a complete dolt when it comes to hairstyling.  Just practice and take lots of pictures before the big day to make sure you’ll like it!
