those of you who did their own make-up, a lot of people have advised me against it because they say i am going to be too nervous, have shaky hands etc… how is your experience with that? were you calm enough to do it?
i started having nightmares that i would look like a witch… so any reassurance would be appreciated!

@zen bride: I THINK Mrs. Hippo did her own makeup and she looked AWESOME.
I, however, am having a friend do mine (well, she’s actually a friend of my FI’s and her makeup=awesomeness) because I’m completely clueless when it comes to makeup. She does modeling and acting and, uh, wow. Sooooo happy she’s doing mine!!! She’s also done other weddings and we have similar complexions, so it shouldn’t be an issue.

Mrs. Hippo did her own, and she was stunning!
My Maid/Matron of Honor did her makeup last year and it looked really beautiful. She was nervous, but since we did our makeup together we just chatted and tried to keep her nerves down. She applied everything in layers to make sure she didn’t overdo it. If you’re confident with your skills and want to do it, you totally should!
