Not at all! if your happy with the way you do your make up then do it just do some trial runs with different colors. : )

I never wear makeup, so if I did my own, I’d look like a clown!  But maybe that’s just me . . .

for me I am not blessed with a makeup talent. sure I can do foundation, lipstick, liner, etc but eyeshadow and highlightign and all that? NUH UH! I cant do it. so its much easier for someone to do it for me. plus ill be so nervous that day anyways!

for me, i never wear makeup and have no clue how to put it on without looking like a clown.  if i had more experience putting makeup on myself, i probably wouldn’t pay to have it done either.  I can understand even regular makeup wearers having it professionally applied for reasons ranging from going for a different style of makeup than their usual look, not wanting to have to worry about applying it, worrying about “sweating it off” or some such and thus leaving it to the professionals.  Or maybe they just want to feel like a superstar and be pampered on their big day.  Everyone has their reasons for having professional makeup done, or choosing not to.

its not that weird at all if its something you are used to.  For me, I love my every day mekup, but it isnt polished or heavy enough for a formal event, so I had it done (by one of my BMs who is a MUA and Broadway actress.)  If you are happy with how you do your own makeup then defnitely stick with that!

I’m jealous that you can do your own. If I were good at it, I’d do it. I suck at makeup & no matter what I do, I always end up with mascara under my eyes. Both my MOH’s were told me, “You’re getting your makeup done! We’ll pay for it if we have to, but you’re doing it”  Not that I needed any convincing. LOL

I say if you can do it yourself, more power to you!  I’m not so great at doing “occasion” makeup & hair (I’m okay with everyday application), so I’ll be having someone do them for me.  🙂

If you don’t want to, then don’t. Many brides like the fact that a professional makeup artist knows how to apply makeup that will last all day under the stresses of a wedding (tears, sweat, many hours without a touch-up), and that will look good when photographed. The makeup we wear every day isn’t the kind that looks best in professional photos. To top it off, I’d go with a pro simply because I’m open to the fact that someone who makes it their career to beautify other people probably knows better than I do how to make me look more amazing than ever on my wedding day. Those are reasons enough for me and many other brides, but if you want to do your own makeup, by all means do your own makeup and save the money.

I can do my own makeup, too, but I don’t have all those fancy tools or extra skin primers and stuff on hand! That’s what really sold it for me…i just didn’t have ALL the goods!

I am a makeup artist and I had my makeup done by someone else~! Well technically I brought my own products~ but yes, I needed that ME time or else I probably might’ve had some ‘bridezilla moment’

Wedding day = probably the most stressful day of my life.(so far)

So if I have a choice to REDUCE my stress, I would~! For 2-3 hours, I just SIT THERE and not do anything, not answer phone calls, not DEAL with anything~ Even with a team of fabulous wedding coordinators, the day was just a huge WHIRLWIND that comes and goes. I am THANKFUL to have had that 2-3 hours to SIT and relax and take a breather before heading back into the WHIRLWIND.

I don’t regret a thing! And would not have done so otherwise.

I wanted to use a makeup artist….but I just couldn’t find someone to do my makeup better than I could so I did it myself and am SO glad I did!

Not weird at all!  I’m just never happy with my own makeup, but obviously can’t have a professional do it every day.  Believe me, if I could, I would.  So, the wedding day is the one day I can justify it!  But hey, if you can rock your own makeup, save the money!  That s**t is not cheap!
