I was worried about this too, and ultimately I could have done my hair and makeup myself… But I wanted to not have to worry about it… So I went and had a trial done and was “open minded” but when I got home I nitpicked it and on wedding day I ended up with exactly what I wanted (which is basically what I do every day)…  And don’t be afraid to go back and say “I want these colors and I want it this dark/light” etc… My makeup lady was so great and she didn’t seem offended when I had her use my personal eyeshadow and I did my own mascara… No one can put mascara on my eyes like I can.. 🙂

I am crazy about make-up and have so much and I had a hard time finding someone that I felt could do a better job than me but, I didn’t want to do my own makeup on the day of because I was afraid of being nervous and screwing it up. It took a while but, I found someone who I think did great. After she left I did tweak it a tiny bit (combed out some mascara because I thought there was a layer or two too many and extended the eyeliner) but, it’s because I am anal and need everything to be beyond perfect. It’s doable but, you have to be patient and willing to try a few people.

I was worried about the MU for sure, so I did do it myself! I think you could do it no problem! It’s just the “norm” to pay for it.

i’m actually a makeup artist and i’ve struggled with this very issue for my wedding day.  do i do it myself?  or hire someone because i don’t want to have to worry about it?  i’ll more than likely have someone do it myself, it also leads to the whole pampering aspect of being a bride andi just dont want to have to do it, i tend to get nervous and take a long time on myself if it’s for a big event and whats bigger than your wedding day?

@Anna22:  skip the shimmer and ask for something “dewy”, which i’ve done on myself plenty.

one trick i used was to do all my steps and then at the end rub a tiny bit of moisturizer of some kind(i actually use a face oil from Bobbi Brown) into my palms and just press them onto my cheeks.  =instant fresh dewey look.

however idk if this would work on wedding makeup, especially airbrushed if your going that route(i am.)

there are also ways of getting the glow using a product with shimmer but without that harsh sparkle.  i’d head to sephora or ulta and check some out.  there a lot now that say they give a glow without shimmer or glitter. 

idk if you can tell from my avatar photo but i think my cheeks look pretty dewy/glowy and i use blush and highlighter with a bit of shimmer. i have a post on here that offers to answer any questions bees have about makeup and i have a full size photo of myself to show another bee something.  you should check it out. 

do you that looks too “done” or shimmery for what you/FI are wanting?

Hi, I’m by no means an expert here, but could you use a primer with some shimmer/glow to it that would be a bit muted by your foundation to still give the effect without being too over the top?
