I would go with someone else. You want to make sure you are wearing long lasting makeup.

I’ve only ever heard of providing your own lipstick.

nataliebobbitt :  what? I’ve never heard of anything like that, Makeup artists can ask if there is a specific foundation you use, if you’re allergic to anything, and even suggest you purchase your own lipstick so it’s something you have with you all day the day of, but I’ve never heard of them telling you to provide your own makeup and charging $30 to apply it. For the record my MUA honored a deal she had going on online for my bridesmaids and charged them $50 and she provided EVERYTHING including eyelashes. Mine was more because I was the bride and bridal makeup is more $ but $30, you have to buy your own stuff AND she is JUST telling you about this now? NOPE. I’d go with someone else.

nataliebobbitt :  save the hassle and go with someone else. bridal makeup is different because you would need it to stay all day and not be too shiny on your face. and heavy enough for the photos because photos wash out a lot of makeup. so a makeup artist (especially one who charges you for it and not your mom doing it!) would need to use better, carefully selected makeup products, which is why bridal makeup is much more expensive than the usual dinner/party makeup. your daily or occasional makeup products would not work too well…you might find it disappearing an hour or two and you’ll need it to last until the night! you REALLY don’t want to create chances for trouble to happen on your wedding day!

As an MUA I find this completley unprofessional and a huge red flag! No working makeup artist asks their clients to bring ANYTHING I personally will not use a clients product unless it’s brand new (such as a special lipstick etc.) The reason for this is that I can’t gurantee the performance or sanitation of products that aren’t mine.

It also speakes to her utter lack of experience and skill.  If she’s not serious or prepared to do her job that is in no way your problem. I have spent thousands on my kit and I do it happily as great products only help me perform better as an artist. 

Also $30 is one of the lowest rates I have ever heard of. This is what happens when ppl pricetag shop. Please find someone else that is a serious freelance MUA and not a harstylist/hobbyist

nataliebobbitt :  If you haven’t already go with a full service person. Its your one day to feel like all eyes are on you. You want your pictures to also reflect your day for how it needs to be. Bridal makeup is different than applying normal makeup. Even if you are generally easy going with day to day wear. For example, I never wear makeup. I can’t be asked. If you get the right person they won’t change you completely by pasting it on, but will definitely bring out your features. Good luck 🙂

nataliebobbitt :  yeah I would NOT use this person. I don’t really wear a lot of makeup and I don’t even own a full coverage foundation. I would literally have no idea what to even get if I were to try to go get one. That just sounds like a terrible idea to me.

The reason you have your makeup done for your wedding day is to ensure that you’re getting high quality long lasting products that will look amazing in photographs and last throughout the whole day and night so you don’t look worn down by the time the ceremony ends. You’re not going to get that professional look with just drugstore products.

Tell her that you’re looking for a full service MUA since you don’t have the right kind of makeup needed for this occasion and that you’ll have to go with someone else.
