I had mine professionally done it, and it made a difference!

I did my own and was happy with it. Thank GOD I didn’t do my trial the day of like I had planned…I hated the first one!

I had the lancome in macys do my makeup. It was free and turned out good, nothing super amazing I probably could have done the same thing myself.

I did my own! I will be getting it professionally done for the wedding though. I did what other PP’s did, just did my usual makeup and made it maybe a little heavier…

I did my own. I haven’t seen the photos yet though so I hope it looks good!

I did the same look I do every day as I didn’t want to look super “made up” and different in the pics. I did my eyes a touch darker and used a tinted lipgloss (I never wear lipgloss) and I love the look! No regrets here because I look like myself in the pics.

I did my own! We were going for a pretty casual feel so I didn’t want to look over done.  We wore outfits that we normally would so I thought my normal (but slightly jazzed up) make-up would complement our casual look.  We didn’t want to look like people we really aren’t!

I did my own, and plan to for the wedding too.  I have had my makeup done before and have never liked it.  It ends up either not looking like ‘me’ or the colors are just wrong.  I will definitely do my makeup heavier the day of the wedding though.  I am going to head to Sephora a few weeks before the wedding and get some goodies!

@erincredible:  Umm..I do not wear make-up, ever. I am somewhat lazy though on that side and have pretty naturally good skin (or so my dermatologist says). I may or may not wear light make up for our wedding. So for our engagement photos, I went natural….I think it looked fine, but others may disagree.

I did my own, but didn’t really put all that much effort into it, really. I had like 9 hours notice (weather dependent shoot!) for a 7 AM shoot, so I slapped on my normal makeup (undereye concealer and eyebrow filling) but added some light foundation and blush…It was also windy so whatever I tried to do with my hair failed. But meh, I think the engagement shoot should be more natural, anyway (as evidenced by our attire…) :p

I’m terrible at doing makeup.

I went to Sephora to have it done. I thought they did a great job.
