    I voted DIY before and I’m sticking to it!  Honestly, I don’t like the peaches that she used on you, but it’s not just the colours, I prefer the eye makeup that you did yourself.  It defines the crease without going too high….in the professional trial the peach extended too high up to your brow bone.  I also like your highlight better.

    You’ve got skills, lady! 🙂

    Indoor wedding I like DIY better.  Outdoor I like professional. Tough call….

    I agree with PP, I like your DIY better than pro.  The colors you used are much more complementary I think.

    I voted DIY because I think you look great in both and dont think there is enough difference to pay a prof. I wouldnt be able to tell which was which if you hadnt posted them side by side

    I also think the DIY looks better.  I think the professional almost looks like you have a bruised eye.

    DIY for sure.  Mainly because the color of shadow that she used on you is just not right.

    I like the professional better except I would use the DIY eye shadow colors instead of what the pro used.

    I don’t think there’s much in it although I do think in the professional photos, your eyes always look bigger … otherwise I think you’ve done a good job yourself.

    I think your DIY looks more natural. Good job!

    Your DIY looks way better. The colors compliment your skin better and your eyes pop.  Will you come do my makeup?  🙂

    I didn’t read all the posts but since it is your wedding day and YOU will be the center of attention for a good 12-18 hours go with the pro make-up.  They know how to make it last.  You should not have to worry about re-applying all day AND you are the bride and DESERVE to be pampered on your day.

    If its how it looks than show your make-up artist and they can make the adjustments.
