    After a DISASTEROUS makeup trial yesterday, I’ve decided to do it myself.  I wear makeup every day and feel confident I can do it and would rather pay for some new products than someone I’m not confident in.  My skin is also so sensitive, it reacted very badly to the foundation the artist used.  I plan on going to a store up here that did my sister-in-law’s makeup for fun when she visited to get some tips and new colors since I definately don’t want the taupy-everyday look I usually sport!

    i plan on getting my makeup (and a spa treatment… including brazillian wax and a spray tan) done for our wedding. this may sound bad, but there’s something about how i feel after i get all of that done that makes me want to do it so badly. also, whenever i wanted to do any of it in the past, i always told myself it was something special for my wedding day. so now it’s just how it is in my book. i wish i could diy in this area, and kudos to the girls who can, but the only way i’m going to diy is if i spend a lot more on my dress than budgeted. we’ll see…

    OH and i think another HUGE reason as to why i want to get it done is because i don’t wear that much makeup, so if i put that much on i feel like a clown and i don’t have enough products so i’d have so many purchases to make… it’d be really hard to keep the cost down there.

    MMbride: Make sure to do a trial unless you’ve used the make-up and spray tan services before!

    Suzietu: If you have lots of red undertones/vascularity combined with sensitive skin you may have a slight case of rosacea. Not only look for known sensitive skin products/Make-up but you can also get a 10d supply of low dose Doxycycline to start 5-7days before the wedding to limit the effects of stress on your big day from a Dermatologist or your regular MD.

    I think what I

    g

    m not happy, find a professional. I`m not a huge make-up wearer, and usually what I wear is simple and mostly focused on the eyes. But it would be nice to be spoiled on my wedding day!

    
    

    I definiately plan on doing my own hair though. I don't want anything complex, I just want something simple and elegant!

    tmarie: you are pretty close!  I do have adult acne and I was on doxycycline for awhile, now just topicals (benzaclin & differin)…my skin is clear and I do wear makeup but my skin can be VERY particular.  I’ve found a good regimen so it’s not too dry, and I have a few foundations (chantecaille & armani) that I wear that provide coverage but don’t irritate my skin.  I will by testing some primers and powders in the next couple weeks to wear on my wedding day – would rather find out ahead of time if something will make me break out!

    I am having a make-up artist do mine…the MAC counters in our area let you make an appointment on your big day for $50 bucks 🙂 i’m not having any bridesmaids so to me that’s a pretty good deal for a professional make-up application!
