You won’t look washed out as long as you get foundation that doesn’t have any SPF/sunscreen in it at all.

Honestly, if you feel more comfortable doing your own makeup, then do it! I will be, because I want to feel like myself, and whenever anyone else does my makeup I don’t feel like me.

There’s no reason why you have to wear liquid foundation either. Go with whatever you like best and feel most comfortable with! You could always go buy yourself a liquid foundation and play with it for a few weeks to get used to using it if you decide you want to DIY and use it.

Did you use a primer on your face? I find this helps me with big pores. The one I have is a clear, almost jelly consistancy, and it works wonders for smoothing everything out.


If I were you I’d have a play one weekend soon, even try to copy what the makeup artist did but tweak it to exactly how you like it. The go outside and take some photos, and compare them to the photos of you with the pro makeup. See which one you like better!
