I had a similar problem with the second makeup artist I found after my original double-booked herself. I would say it’s a bit early. Did you already have your trial done to see how long it lasts?

I would recommend using Urban Decay eye primer. It will keep your eyeshadow on all day.

Good luck 🙂

Humm..that is on the early side. I guess it depends on how badly you like this person. I would want to relax that morning though and not have to worry about smudging your eyeliner and such.

I had my makeup done early in the morning also and didn’t really have problems except for my foundation because my face became oily during the day.

I agree with flamingred, depends on how badly you want her. For me giving up 4 hours of my beauty sleep would cancel any value provided by the makeup artist.

Do you have your heart set on photos of you getting ready through the whole process? and if so, can your photog make it that early?

I know it sounds silly, but … wouldn’t want any regrets.

I’d only be worried about her being on a deadline to get somewhere else. What if it takes longer than expected? Or you need her to redo part of it? An hour and a half doesn’t seem like long enough.

How do your bridesmaids feel about this? For the wedding I am in in August, I just found out that our hair appointment is at 9:00am and it is 2 hrs away for me. I wish she would have asked me first because I would have just done my own hair! I feel that’s too early, really. (This wedding isn’t until 4:30!)

If your heart is set on her and you don’t mind, I don’t think it’s a bad idea for you, though! The primer suggestions are great.

If you’re in the LA area, I highly recommend Angie Pham for hair and makeup… I say keep your options open.  Sitting around for 4 hours with hair and makeup done sounds kinda like torture to me, lol!

It really depends on how badly you want this artist. 7 is kinda early… Do any of your Bridesmaids or family know of anyone else? Or maybe your current artist could give you a referral.

We are starting at 7 also and have pictures at 2. The products we are using stay on really well but i plan to buy some and take it with me to touch up if need be. I think you will be okay but i would make sure she isn’t rushing you.
