No just tell them you have skin allergies. If you’re paying them, they shouldn’t care.

No, I don’t think it’s rude at all. It’s your wedding and your skin, so you have the right to voice what you want. Honestly, I’m a little nervous about my wedding make-up as well. I normally use Bare Minerals and face cleansers/moisturizers containing minimal harsh chemicals so I’m afraid that my skin will react if I use a different type of foundation & powder for my wedding. You are paying your make-up artist, so it is up to you to tell her what you want for your big day!

@chercee:  I would get in touch with her and explain that you have rosacea and extremely sensitive skin. Ask her which products she uses and that you are more comfortable using your own tried and true  products. I can’t imagine that she’d have a problem with it. As a make up artist, she must be familiar with different skin conditions and if she doesn’t have a suitable product she can use, i’m sure she’d be glad to use whatever makes you  comfortable.

No, I would just tell them that your skin is extremely sensitive and that it took you a while to get it under control. I can’t see someone being offended by this.

Not rude at all.. My MUA said I could bring whatever of my own I wanted. Obviously her stuff is better quality then mine, so I’m going to just use herS, but I’ll be bringing my own mascara, because i get pink-eye A LOT and I just feel more comfortable using my own mascara.

I would talk to the stylist beforehand. Just tell her what you just described and say that for that reason, you prefer to use your own. She might tell you about how her makeup is hypoallergenic or has the same ingredients as your own and it might be fine, but if you don’t feel comfortable I think it’s totally reasonable for you to wear your own. Just make sure she’s clear about WHY you want to wear your own – it’s about health, not being a brat. As long as your are nice about it I think it should be fine.

I’d just tell your makeup artist what you told us! The artist is there to do what’s best for you, and makeup artists are incredibly knowledgeable about what is/isn’t good for different skin types, so she will totally understand and may even be able to recommend other products to try. 🙂

Definitely not rude – I can’t see why they wouldn’t be wiling to work with you on this!  Just explain your reasoning, and I’m sure they will understand.  My mom is the same way, and she has to bring a lot of her own makeup when she’s having it done professionally, and they are always fine with it.  I think a MUA would rather you say something about it then to not say something have your skin react, and be worried that you will be upset with them or give them a bad review.

@chercee:  I’m a MUA. If a client wants me to use her own foundation, that is absolutely fine with me. She (or he, as the case sometimes is…) doesn’t even need to explain the reason. 🙂

No, I don’t think it’s rude at all.  The makeup artist’s goal is to make you look beautiful — if your face is going crazy because she isn’t using your makeup, that’s not going to happen.  I would certainly bring this up to her and make sure you have a trial run with your products!

@chercee:  Unless you are getting it done at a certain brand counter in the mall, then I don’t think this is rude at all!

Definitely tell her all about your skin and use your own products…. She may even lower the price since she’s not using hers Wink.
