I’ve been a bridesmaid 3 times in the past year and a half and for *all* of them I’ve done my own make up. For one wedding there was the option to pay for professional make up and for the other two all the bridesmaids just did their own – it was quite nice actually as the Maid of Honour all did our make up for the last one I went to so it was a fun little bonding experience! 

I think it’s fine to give them the option for professional make up, or maybe if you want them to have specific eyeshadow/lipstick colours you could buy them some make up that they apply themselves which could be a nice gesture without paying through the nose for a professional!

Personally, I would not  give the option for professional makeup if I wasn’t going to pay for it.
