I have been doing makeup trials on myself for weeks now. I think I have the look I want narrowed down. I am decent at doing makeup and have done it for friends for a long time. I am worried that I will be too stressed to do a great job on the big day though – or getting overly anxious if it is not PERFECT. However I have never ever liked my makeup when I have had it done. Would I be better off chancing it and having a professional do it for me or just do it myself?

Why not go for a makeup trial with a professional and see how you like it? If you do, it might be worth the splurge to help relieve any potential wedding-day stress.

If you can do it yourself and like it better than paying for it then who cares! It might be something that can take your mind off the nerves that day. I personally am having my hair and makeup done, but mostly because one of my good friends is one of the best hair and makeup artists in the city and i trust her with my life lol. She does my hair all the time, and we’re doing trials before so I know it will be perfect!!

if it’s in your budget…
Get it done professionally!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1) it makes you feel pampered…when else will you have someone pamper you like an a-lister than on your wedding day!!
2) it seems like you might be stressed doing it yourself. Do everything you can to be less stressed and leave it in someone else’s professional hands.
3) makeup artists know what they’re doing. They know how to do makeup that works the camera, etc. I thought my professional makeup was slightly over the top in person…but after I got my photos back — it looked amazing!! AND it lasted 13 hours – i could have never done that myself.
SOOOOO if you’re budget conscious, there’s nothing wrong with doing it yourself. If you have an extra $100 or less (depending on your city) — GET PAMPERED!

I think you should do a professional trial and see how it goes. If it doesn’t work out, just make sure to give yourself plenty of time on the wedding day to relax and do your own make-up. I am sure it will turn out great!
