You ladies have been such great help to me, so I’m consulting you for my makeup too! I want to do it myself, but some people have been telling me I’m being silly and should just get it done professionally. What do you think?
I did a copper brown look, highlighting the brow bone and inner corners, and with false eyelashes! …And I messed up on my left eye, droopier lashes there. Whoops!
My mom keeps saying my wedding day makeup should be more dramatic. Should I attempt something more dramatic myself?
Or should I just give in and find a makeup artist?

I think the second make-up picture looks great on you. Your wedding make-up doesn’t have to be dramatic if you don’t want it to be. I plan to go with a natural look because that’s what I wear every day.

I like #2 but I think you could go a lil more glam if you wanted to 😀

I didn’t vote above. But I think you should at least get a make-up trial done by a professional. They might be able to give you some tips on foundation, blush, eye makeup, etc… The good thing about professionals is they know what will look good in professional pictures! Even if you don’t end up using them on your big day, it can’t hurt! 🙂

@Topolino: I’ve been hearing that you have to pay for the make-up trial too, and that it’s 100+ dollars, is that true?

You did a really nice and you’re really pretty (always makes things easier!) but I agree with Topolino that you should give a professional makeup artist a try – just to see exactly how much drama you can get away with. I think the price of an actual makeup trial really depends on where you are. I’m getting married in Central New Jersey and a trial runs about $75.
If you’re fairly certain that you will NOT want a makeup artist on the day of, you might try the less expensive option of a makeup counter at a department store or Sephora for some quick tips.
