Mrs.Mandy:  I’m choosing to be the one bridesmaid not getting my hair and makeup done for my brother’s wedding… this now has me petrified…

I did my own hair and makeup for one of my BM’s weddings and it looks fine in pics and it was fine in person.  I’m also not a MUA but I did makeup for my Future Sister-In-Law and a couple of friend’s weddings and the pics were fine.  

I’m not comfortable posting pics of them, because I obviously don’t have their permission to do so and I think that’s against WB’s rules.  Here’s me when I did my own hair and makeup though. I had to take pictures of pictures so they aren’t the best.  The only thing I wish I could change about them is filling in my eyebrows a hair darker and adding false lashes.  For the record in the one pic I’m standing next to the bride who DID have pro hair and makeup and the only difference that I can see is her eyelashes!

Everyone in the wedding party (including me!) did their own makeup. We did have our hair professionally done (except for one JB, who I thought looked very cute).

seriously? Thats so mean of you to say and its really sad that you don’t think your friends look beautiful even for trying to be dressy for your special day.

Mrs.Mandy:  I’m sorry that you are feeling this way, but I’m not sure what you want as an answer to the question, “What can I do about this?”  There is literally nothing you can do about their makeup on the day of your event after the fact.  However, if after they see the sneak peeks and they are upset about their own appearance,  I wouldn’t tell them how you feel if you don’t have anything positive to say; I especially wouldn’t tell anyone they look like a clown.  

Is it possible that you are overanalyzing the sneak peeks?  If they looked fine on the day, then I’m sure the pictures can’t all be that bad.  I think you may be focusing on tiny details and losing sight of the (no pun intended) big picture.
