Following because this sounds like a great thread!

I’ll be doing my own makeup, so hopefully can get some good tips!

Five words: Urban Decay makeup setting spray.

That stuff is no joke. My makeup looked exactly the same when I was taking it off at 11pm as it did when I applied it around noon-1pm. You’re welcome!

PS. Dear OP, as a fellow pale person who refuses to go near a tanning bed, I would just like to say you look lovely.

I agree with “staying true to yourself”. Especially with makeup. If you don’t normally wear a lot of makeup, don’t try to go all Kim Kardashian. It will look odd. Nothing wrong with glamming it up, but don’t go over the top. As for hairstyles, stick with what you’re comfortable with. If you hate up-dos, don’t get one just because that’s what you see in magazines and on Pinterest.

Also, if you feel confident with doing your own makeup or hair, just do it yourself. Don’t let anyone convince you that it will be a burden or regret it. I did that and regret getting my hair and makeup done professionally.

Thanks for the encouragement! Honestly, my initial reason for not having my hair and makeup professionally done was because our budget is super tight, but the more I settled on the idea of doing it myself, the better I felt. I’ve never really liked when other people do my hair or makeup anyway- it just doesn’t feel or look like me! I’m much more satisfied knowing I have control over it. And I’m keeping it pretty simple, so it shouldn’t be stressful on the day of. Also, +1 for rocking the pale skin! I will be as well. 🙂
