I’m having my engagement session around 5-5:30pm but the only time the makeup artist I’d like to book is open that day is at 9am – do you think my makeup & hair will last until the time of my engagement session? Will it still look as nice?

Anytime I have had my makeup done early in the morning but had an event to go to later in the day I have always made sure I kept MAC blot powder in my bag for touch ups and a mini can of hair spray/bobby pins JUST IN CASE.

Unless you have particularly dry / oily / problem skin that will affect the long wear of the make up, I think it will be fine. Just keep your touch up items close by and spend the day not doing anything that will make you sweat / cry etc.!
If this doesn’t seem convincing enough, think about what would be worse: the MUA you want, but getting it done early OR the MUA ‘you have to settle for’ in order to get it done later…

@starrynight117: Most MUA should be able to make it last that long. Keep in mind that the day of a lot of Girls weddings that happens. I haven’t heard of a Bride complaining yet that her makeup was ruined by the time the reception came around 🙂
My MUA assured me that although my makeup on wedding day will be done by 11am, it will hold all night with only the need to re-apply lipstick 🙂
