I don’t normally wear a lot of make-up, and have never had my make-up professionally done. What do you think of doing your own make-up on the day of your wedding? My sister used to work at a make-up counter, so I am thinking she can assist/do-it. Opinions?

@angelalsmith3: I’m a freelance makeup artist and ill be doing my own since we are doing a destination wedding 🙂 if we were going to be local I might have a fellow MUA do it. PP is right: YouTube tutorials are great 🙂 find something simple or for beginners and practice 🙂

If your sister worked at a makeup counter, she should be able to do it. Just give her an idea of what you want, and practice lots of times!

Having your sister help sounds like a great idea. I did my own and I was happy with the outcome. I wanted to look semi-natural and like ME because wedding makeup can be so heavy.

Just read a lot about it on the internet and do a ton of practices with your sis. If you search things like “natural/green/blue/wedding eye makeup how to” it will come up with tons of results…try youtube. It will tell you how to blend the colors professionally and how to go from darker to lighter shades and where to put shimmer for the most effect, etc.
