Do you think your mom would go for it if you suggested she also get her makeup professionally done on the wedding day?  If possible, you could have your makeup artist do your mom’s makeup too, using a more subtle color scheme?

Hmm. I second Jessie516. Maybe have her makeup professionally done too? But I would suggest that you compromise with her on makeup brightness. If you have her made up so she looks like everyone else, then it sounds to me like she won’t be herself. Sometimes you just have to let things go. If this were my mom, I’d probably offer professional makeup but then let the subject drop if she was resistent. It’s not important enough to get concerned with – your photog will deal with her eyes being too shiny/etc in photos, and in the end you’ll have the eccentric mom you love there. You’ll want to look back on your photos and remember that your mom was there, not some lady who felt uncomfortable because she couldn’t wear what made her feel beautiful and confident. Know what I mean?

I’d definitely start looing for some inspiration pictures of your ideas to show her (and the makeup artist).  I think that’s a better starting point than telling what to/not to do.

Make sure your father isn’t around when you go to get the makeup done.  Chances are by the time he sees both you and your mom for the first time on the wedding day all beautified, he’s not going to complain about your makeup being dark enough–he’ll think you both are just beautiful!
