I swwear I think that the way you did your makeup looks way better than both of the other makeup artists work. I love your eyebrows by the way. There is nothing I would change personally.

Do your own! You look gorgeous in the ones you did. I agree the other MUA’s were not great looking just didn’t look natural to me. I am doing my own for the same exact reason! No one listens to what I want and I didn’t look like myself! You know what looks good one your face better than anyone else so do it yourself!

The MUAs both aged you 10 years!!  Your own makeup looks amazing, you look young and fresh.  Nice job!

Wow. I was looking at the MUA pics wondering “What are you talking about? Your makeup looks great.” But I’m admittedly not a makeup person. However, seeing your skills I can totally understand. You should go ahead and do your own. You really do look amazing.

Your makeup that you did on your own looks amazing!! One product that’s worth investing in is the All Nighter Spray by Urban Decay. Between that and a good primer your makeup wont budge the entire night!

I was going to say the same as PPs. The makeup trials made you look older. You look best with the makeup you did yourself. I’m also doing my own makeup for the big day, because I know what I like on myself, I know my makeup won’t cause me to break out because I’ve been using it, and I’ve always enjoyed doing makeup. Doing it yourself also ensures you can have nearly unlimited free trials (other than the cost of the makeup itself). I always recommend YouTube when people ask me how I learned. They have tons of makeup tutorials that are really helpful, from applying falsies, the perfect prow, and how to nail the winged eyeliner look.

Your makeup looks so much better than the other two trials. Definitely do your own. The only critique I have is your eyebrows. They look a bit square when you do your own makeup. That’s my personal opinion, but if you like it go for it. You look genuinely happier in your makeup than the other two trials.

mrsbrizz2017 :  your makeup looks so much better than the trials! (Esp #2!)

I’d go a little heavier on the blush, but really i think you look great.

mrsbrizz2017 :  You should do your own.  You obviously know what you are doing and the photos of your having done your own make up are stunning.  You have the skills. Use them! 🙂
