    I had a professional.  She used MAC makeup on me which lasted really well throughout the day.

    I’m hiring someone.  I pretty much suck at doing my own make up and this is the ONE day where I know I’m going to want it to look perfect.

    I’m totally skewing the results.  I’m having a cousin help with hair and makeup – but she owns her own salon and has been doing my hair since high school.

    If I didn’t have her, I’d probably still have a pro do my hair but tackle my makeup myself.  I feel like if you read some online tutorials and play around a few times with different lines and techniques in teh weeks leading up to your wedding you can achieve a great result.  Of course, having done theater my entire life, I probably have more firsthand knowledge than most people.

    I’ve read a few of the girls on here had great results going to one of the deaprtment store counters.  For the cost of one or 2 products (which you then get to keep) you get a pro without having the shell out.

    Get a pro, but get a trial! @artsprout, of course it is possible for a professional makeup artist to go overboard and keep you from looking like you, but that’s why the trial is so important, so he or she can get a clear idea from you what you like and don’t like.

    If you can afford it, I think a pro would be a good idea for anyone. Even if you’ve been doing your own makeup for years and years and love your products, a pro can bring out your features in ways you probably haven’t attempted on your own. You’ve probably never put on makeup specifically for a day when you’ll be the subject of hundreds of photographs, and the pros know how to dress your face in a way that will be at its best in front of the camera. There are great deals on affordable makeup artists out there, I’d try to squeeze one into the budget if you are able.

    I’m considering doing it my myself, I’ve done a few trials…. not sold either way. I think I may hire someone, but so far my trials are going okay.

    @artsprout.love That is exactly what I’m afraid of, for the last wedding I was in, I had my makeup done… crazy scary green glitter eyes…. that’s all I have ot say. I asked for “golden smokey eye”…. lost in translation.
