Im definitely on the pro makeup side.

Why? Because the day of you DO NOT want to stress yourself out about anything. I want to know that everything is going to look perfect without me doing any of the work. So many times if I have an event to go to and I feel rushed or stressed, I ruin my eye liner or eye shadow. I want to make sure I look completely covered and I have problem skin and I needed someone to completely take care of that. Worth the money. If you want quality makeup, you will end up spending more on the individual makeup then you would on somebody doing it for you. I do not wear coverup everyday so 50-60$ worth of cover up for someone who never wears it is eve worse.

I just had my trial and I wanted to look bridal, dewy and not tooo much.

You can go have a consultation at a make-up counter (Clinque, Lancome, etc) — they’ll help choose the right products for wedding/photos, work with you on what feeels right for you, and show you how to do it. I don’t think there’s a charge for the appointment, because they’re using it to sell you the oroducts.

I’m DIYing my makeup. My motto is: if Kate Middleton can do her own make up for her wedding, so can I.

@garden_bride:  Your foundation looks really pretty. Can I ask what you used?

@Treeline:  She used MAC liquid foundation and applied it with a brush and stipled it on. Not a sponge. Takes long but worth the end result. 

@LaraW : Thank you!! You need to find a professional that is willing to hear you out and not shove their makeup opinions and skills down your throat. Show them your inspiration picture and make sure they don’t stray <3
