LobstaGurl :  I am a very natural person.  I really like having minimal makeup on.  Knowing that pictures are forever however, I chose to spend the money on the hair and makeup and I am glad I did.  I can do my own makeup fine, however I know I can’t get my eyes just perfect and I didn’t want the added stress on my wedding day.  It was worth the extra cost, and both my hair and makeup people did a great job of following through on the vision that I had.  I didn’t feel “made up” if that makes sense.

I did my own hair. I didn’t wear makeup! I never do actually. I still got married and had a lovely time. I think you should DIY!

A friend did my hair, and I did my own makeup. I don’t normally wear much more than eyeliner, so I did do shadow, contouring (a bit), and lipstick, but I wasn’t interested in paying someone else to do something I was already capable of doing! 😉 
My only complaint about our pictures is that I forgot to freshen up the lipstick!!

I also did my own hair/makeup for a friend’s wedding two weeks ago.

Basically, if you’re happy with your makeup and hair skills, go for it! Practice every chance you get so you’re faster and more confident on the day! 🙂

I had my hair done, but not my makeup. I did the makeup myself. But my wedding was a while ago, so the dress is out of date!
