I did my own makeup! I did it myself because I panic when anyone else gets near my eyes ( I had to have eye muscle surgery when I was 16)… anyway, I didn’t do anything completely out of the ordinary…. I normally wear power, eye liner, and mascara. So, I just kind of did an “amped” up version of that. I added some eyeshadow and lip gloss to the things I mentioned above. I wouldn’t dare bust out the red lipstick or eyebrow pencil if you’ve never worn anything like that before. Plus, you don’t want people to not recognize you on your wedding day!

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I did my own for my engagement photos and for my friend’s wedding. I’m a big fan of natural makeup, so I concentrate more on bronzer/blush, a natural lip, and lighter eye makeup. The colors I will use for the wedding day will be brighter/more springy, but I doubt I’ll do anything much heavier.

I’m curious to see more gals post too! I am probably going to have my hair done, but I think I am going to do my own makeup. I’m still kind of scared to screw it up though!

I did my own makeup!  I left my hair for the pros, though.

I had my hair done at a salon but I did my own makeup. I went to a sephora counter and had them try differnt looks on me and teach me application tips and then I practised at home and on the big day my makeup looked great, no one believed that I did it myself.

I guess I did the reverse of most girls. I did my own hair, but had my makeup done. I’m not good at makeup, but I tend to feel nobody knows my hair like I do. I’m black, and on the occasions I’ve tried to have black stylists curl my hair, it comes out looking sectiony, tight, and shiny, and hard. I wanted my hair to look soft and pretty, and I didn’t trust them to do it right.

I did my own make up! I did trials a few times and took pictures inside with flash and outside in natural light. I adjusted a few times until I got the look I wanted and am VERY pleased with how my make up looked on the wedding day! it was actually kind of relaxing for me to go in the bathroom by myself and put on my face during that hectic day!
