Do you think my own make-up application is better than the professional make-up I had done? Sorry they’re so big. The lighting is very different in both pictures. I do like how her make-up made my green eyes really stand out. I do know I didn’t like the false eyelashes she used. As you can see, my eyes were getting red from them.
Professional (I hate this picture because I hate my teeth so no judging, Bees. lol):

Yes; I like the way you did your own make-up 🙂 Beautiful!

@dreamer1288: I’m not sure if it’s the lighting, but your skintone seems very even in the professional pic.
Honestly, you look very pretty in both shots!

Your makeup looks just as good as the pro! Spoil yourself with some nice makeup for your day!

It better have looked even.. I had on so much foundation that when I would scratch an itch on my face, it’d leave an indent from where I scratched the makeup off lol! And thank you for the compliment!
Thank you, lady!

I also think your own make up looks very good!

You have beautiful eyes! I say you could definitely do it yourself…maybe get some false eyelashes to help “pop” the eyes even more in photos 🙂

Thank you ladies!
Yeah, I keep telling myself that if there’s one day I have someone else do my make-up, it should be on my wedding day! But I’m such a control freak… Lol!

If I can be honest, the makeup looks very heavy on the pro pic. I can see all the powder foundation, and I’m sure the lighting was supposed to be the most flattering. Your own makeup looks lighter, and definitely more natural. With fake eyelashes, your eyes will stand out even more. You recreated the pro’s version very well. I don’t think you need to go pro for your day. You’re very talented !

Thank you!! This is how I’ve done my make-up every single day since I was in high school!! I’m thinking I may go purchase some nice colors, some concealer, and pretty lipgloss and do it myself for the day. If I’m not indulging in a make-up artist, I’ll just indulge in the make-up! 😉

@dreamer1288: I think they both look equally good, however…
There is going to be so much going on on your wedding day and you are going to have so much to do/think about that morning, that I highly recommend having someone do your makeup for you. I was fighting my photographer, my mother, and my bridesmaids tooth and nail on this, and in the end, I’m glad they convinced me to have someone do it for me, because it came ot awesome and I didn’t stab myself in the eye with a mascara wand. If the price is reasonable, I say pamper yourself!

@dreamer1288: Both are good! I like the way you did the face makeup, but I really really like the eye makeup by the professional.. I agree with one of the PP’s that the professional one looks a little powdery. Either way you go, I think you are beautiful and can’t go wrong either way!

@dreamer1288: you look lovely in both. i am not sure if it’s just the camera or the lighting but there is something softer and more uniform in the pro pic.

You look pretty in both- especially the eye makeup. I think I like the peachy tones of the professional makeup slightly better for the wedding day. I would recommend getting it done- it is amazing to have your hair and makeup done, relax with the girls and feel completely taken care of.
