    I’m not married, but I voted yes anyways because I am paying for my Bridesmaid or Best Man to have their hair and make-up done.

    I say yes. I’ve looked into this. Most makeup professionals around here will only book the bride plus a minimum of 3 bridesmaids. ETA, then again, you could have them all pitch in to pay.

    @HeLovesDogs:  Yes, I think it’s worth it.  I paid for my mom, I and Maid/Matron of Honor to get our makeup done.  Both Mom and Maid/Matron of Honor usually go light on their makeup so I wanted something more (still let them pick tho) and they enjoyed the pampering.

    And no, I’d suggest you guys do touch-ups yourself.  My MUA gave us travel-size sizes of what we’d need to do so ourselves.

    I don’t think so. I offered it to my Bridesmaid or Best Man (at their expense) and surprisingly all of them wanted to get it done.

    I paid for my hotties and they all looked ravishing. If it’s in your budget, it’s worth it. It was so nice to watch my girlies get pampered and prettied. Their smiles were worth it. 🙂

    And if your MUA is worth his/her fee, you won’t need him/her for touch-ups. My make-up lasted for 12 hours, and only came off because of a good scrub with make-up remover.

    I vote yes.  I will want all my BMs to get their makeup done (I will likely pay for it myself) not because all my ladies aren’t stunning beauties! but just because in photos I don’t want anyone to end up looking washed out.  Makeup all the way! Plus why not have a little extra pampering?

    I was a B in october and I was really happy to have had my make up professionally done. Only one other girl got hers done, and I know she was happy as well. We paid for it ourselves but it was definitely worth it. I plan on paying for all of my BMs to get theris done.

    I vote “no” as a former bridesmaid.  I felt bad that my bride paid for it because I don’t think it was worth it.  Nobody cared what I looked like.

    I mean, if you have the money it can’t hurt. My bff does a great job with her makeup, better than me, so it wouldn’t be worth it if it was a splurge. My sister isn’t good with makeup though so it would be worth it.

    It depends on whether your BMs are handy with makeup or not. I and my Bridal Party are  all useless when it comes to makeup, so we need professional help. But some girls do a way better job on themselves than a pro will. Only you know your girls.

    I am paying for them to have it done because most of them dont wear makeup normally. Usually I am the one to do their makup so….ya….I only said that false eyelashes would be at their expense. My mom is also having her makeup done. 

    That way we all look and feel like a million bucks.

    If you have the money then go for it, but honestly my Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs did their own makeup and you couldn’t tell the difference between them doing their own makeup and a professional who did mine.
