    I suck at both but I suck less at makeup (I believe) lol. I really suck at both, I’d never do either.

    But I voted makeup.

    @ksus07:  I did my own makeup. My lovely hairdresser had said she would do both, but it looked baaaaad (she used too much eye liner for how fair skinned and blonde I am) so I washed it off and re-did it, minimalistic style 🙂

    I would rather do my own hair- I feel like makeup is more important for picture-purposes!

    @ksus07:  I’m much better at doing my own makeup than my own hair. I’ve also had terrible makeup artists before, much moreso than hair stylists.

    a MUA has to really wow me with her skills before she touches my face.

    I did my own makeup, and had my hair done professionally.

    Oh gosh, what a horrible decision. Haha.

    I am hopeless with hair. If I was doing my own hair, I’d have to wear it down and straight, as that is all I can do. I’d miss my cute updo.

    Makeup I also am clueless about, but I don’t feel like I need much. I could use my own stuff and touch up throughout the night and get by I guess. It wouldn’t look professional at all, but maybe people would get distracted by my awesome pro hair? hah.

    I did both hair and makeup myself. I chose to curl my hair and wear it down, however. If i had decided to do an updo of any sort then I would have had to have professional help for that 🙂 

    For my makeup, I watched tons of youtube videos and lots of practice, just because I don’t normally wear a lot of makeup. But I think it turned out fine!

    Depends on the hair/ make up style so I voted either.

    Neither since I suck at both. Can only manage ponytail, messy bun, or straight down with hair, and only mascara, some eye shadow and lip gloss for makeup. So I voted makeup since I am better at that.

    Makeup, definitely. If someone else tries to do anything near my eyes I immediately feel like I’m going to throw up. Plus I like to keep it pretty minimal and I feel like a professional would doll me up too much.

    My hair is pretty much always a lifeless piece of fluff that needs power and prayer to get it to hold volume. I leave that to the hands of a professional and definitely not me.
