    Ok, I’m a hot durn mess when it comes to make-up (I don’t wear make-up on a regular basis, and only eyeshadow and mascara when I go out)…. I had no question in my mind that I would hire someone. I actually hired someone that did airbrush. It was the most worth it thing I’ve ever done. Not only did my makeup never ever smudge, but it was even still perfect the next day. I even thought for a minute to let my BMs do it, problem is, they know what looks good on them, not me…. I’m not going to upload a pic on here (privacy) but I’ll say this….everyone they whole night kept telling me I looked like a porcelain doll…. And I was a budget crucher type of bride (aren’t we all,lol), and as much as it pained me to see ever other dollar go out the door (except the dress,hehe), letting go of this $ was 100% worth it…..

    I originally was going to DIY mine, even did “trials” and got advice from fellow Bees and was 99% good with that decision. However, I had a friend who sells Mary Kay professionally (read: for the last 15 years) offer to do it for free! So I had a trial done with her and what ended up happening is she did my stuff I wasn’t totally comfortable doing — the dramatic eye shadow (I’m normally pretty “safe” with mine), the blush color, the primer and shimmery stuff (she did foundation and lip color too, but I would’ve been fine) and I did my eyeliner and mascara. 🙂

    Basically, it was nice to have another person do it but it wasn’t necessary. Granted I play with makeup a lot, I think it’s fun and I wear it almost daily. A sidenote — I also think that after having her do it for the trial I could have recreated it but wouldn’t have been quite as confident in it.
