We had a BLAST having our makeup done, and my photographer got some awesome pictures of it. We drank mimosas, shot the shit with our MUA and hairdresser about bridezillas they’ve encountered, and ooohed and awed over how awesome yet natural we looked.
It is not the same at all as what you are suggesting.
Hiring makup artist= let me treat you to this nice thing+ hooray + fun = bride gets everyone in the make-up she wants + happiness
can you not do your makeup like THAT= MOH/BM, you suck+ let’s not be friends anymore = sadness
It is just being polite. The whole purpose of manners is not to offend and hurt people’s feelings. i.e. saying, I’m sorry I can’t come to your craptastic party because I have plans = nice. I’m sorry I can’t come to your craptasticparty because you bore me and I’d rather watch paint dry = mean.

I think for the wedding the only way would be to pay for her make up to get done professionally. You could mention how pretty her eyes look with out heavy make up. She may realize that truth or might go back to her own ways. Some people get so much stuck in their ways and it is hard to change their opinion on what looks best for them.
I would get some makeup inpiration pics, send them to all the girls and ask that if they do their own makeup, they try to go natural, and use the pics as a guide. Flat out request no heavy liner is done, as it doesn’t go with your wedding look. I wouldn’t PERSONALLY find that rude.
On one hand, I don’t think it’s a big deal to say, “hey, I know you normally wear your makeup a certain way, but would you consider a softer, lighter look for my wedding photos? It was something I thought of, and if you’d be willing to, I’d really appreciate it.”
On the other hand, this is something that you won’t even notice on the day of. It’s really not a big deal at all. This is a perfect example of one of those things you see posted on the different “what did you stress out about that wasn’t worth it” or “what would you do differently” threads. For example, 2 of the women in my wedding party changed into casual dresses at some point during the reception. I didn’t even notice until I looked at the wedding photos later.
@MichiganGirl24: It’s pretty common for brides to dictate dress, shoes, hair, and accessories. I don’t think it’d be absurd, esp if she’s your Maid/Matron of Honor so very close to you, to bring up ideas about make up too. “I’m thinking pink cheeks [or whatever] and soft smudgy off back eyeliner would look great on you and be the look I’m going for for the bridesmaids.” I would bring it up like any other part of a bridesmaid’s appearance. Then maybe you guys can mess around trying different looks together for the both of you.
I had my bridal party come over and vote for a makeup look, they chose well and we are having a MUA do it. Only one Bridesmaid or Best Man had an issue….but they all told her to get over herself lol.
Wow this is one of those threads that just seems to be crazy for no reason…
