I had my makeup professionally done by the same person who was doing my wedding day makeup.

I did my own, watched a few tutorials and it went fine — getting it done for the wedding  tho!

I did.  I went to the Clinique counter with my own makeup and showed them what I had.  A consultant did my makeup using colors I owned (but used the store samples) and explained each step.  I recreated that for my e-pics.

I did!I wanted to look as natural as possible and how I look everyday so I opted to do it myself

I did my own, but I’m getting it professionally done for the wedding.

I did!  I went to Sephora the day before and had it done there, then got a couple new products that I liked and used some of her tips and techniques.  FI said I didn’t cover my blemishes quite as well as she had, but our amazing photographer kindly edited any visible ones as far as I can tell.  And now I am much better at doing my own makeup!  I should have done it ages ago, really, so I could practice!

I did my own but regret it a tiny bit. I’m not good with eye makeup and you could barely tell I had anything on.

i did my own and i was really happy with how it came out (tho maybe that had to do with how the photos were edited, haha). i have my license in cosmetology, so i guess you could say it was professionally done…? i don’t really consider myself a makeup artist tho.

I did my own makeup and Photoshop did the rest.  😀

I was happy with it.  I put it on a bit heavier than usual, but I was very pleased.

I had my makeup done at one of those blow dry and makeup bars.

I did my own. It was fine. I put it on a bit heavier than normal.

I did my own makeup but I felt very confident to do my own makeup. I always watch youtube tutorials and I. love. makeup. If you are doing your own, make sure you invest in a good foundation that is for flash photography. A flawless canvas is the most important!

I did my own make-up, and I did it the exact same way that I wear it every day.  For engagement pictures, I wanted to look as natural as possible!  I will be doing my own make-up for the wedding as well, and will likely fancy it up a little bit…but not too much, as I do want to look “like myself” and be comfortable!  🙂  Good luck with whatever you choose to do!

I did my own make-up after looking at tutorials on You-tube and running them by Fiance. 🙂
