I did my own and am planning on doing my own for my wedding too.  I usually only wear bare minerals so I did add a BB cream under my bare minerals foundation for the pictures to have more coverage (I was also worried about the bare minerals giving weird reflections so I put that on lighter–which PS there were no issues with the bare minerals).  We were doing a 60’s theme for our E pics so I watched a few tutorials for the eye makeup.

We did our e-pics while on vacation, so I did my makeup myself.  I was kinda trying to go for the ombre/faded highlights look, but when I got my pics I realized I should have got fresh highlights and cut because I didn’t like how my hair looked.

I did mine!  But I went a little heavier on the eye make-up and wore some foundation and concealer as well.  I advise you to do that as well.  No need to have to airbrush things out.

I did my own ๐Ÿ™‚ I felt like a dang clown, but I’m really happy with how it turned out in the photos. I increased my eyeliner, put a bunch of blush on, and I got fake eyelashes from Walmart.

@ChampagneBlushWedding:  I may have a friend who is a professional do it. Hopefully it’s a low fee or free! I want to look good and I never wear makeup normally so it may be disastrous if I do it!

I did my own and made it a little heavier than normal. It ended up being a super sunny day so I could really have made it even heavier, but still good!

Here’s my pic. I did heavy cat eyeliner, fake outer lashes, and a red lip. I didn’t have much time to do my makeup so I thought a red lip would really make a ‘pop’.

I got mine done by a professional.  One of my friends (who is a photographer) had posted on FB a couple years ago about getting her make-up done for their engagement photoshoot and how she was really suprised at what a difference it makes.

I kept that in the back of my head I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Here’s how I turned out…

I got mine done by the same person who did my wedding makeup.. used the trial session which was a bit cheaper i think less than 300 so that I could take advantage of that. By The Way everrry girl who is getting their makeup done for their wedding day should ALWAYS do a trial. I thought this was obvious but my friend recently got married and hatttted her makeup on her wedding day because she didnt want to pay for the trial.. off topic. anyway I would get it done .. they are really good at prepping your face for the camera so that  the eshoot comes out perfect! I loved our eshoot and its a chance to express your artistic side since on the wedding day you don’t get ot get as creative.

I did my own.  I really wish I would have gone a little heavier but I guess now I know for the wedding.  Oh well…live and learn!

I did my own. I’m really into makeup though and sometimes I do it for others.

For my wedding, I am getting it done by a MUA.
