There are only 3 reasons you should hire someone to do your bridal make up at your wedding – If you have money to burn, you’ve never done hair or make up or you have invited the queen.
Okay that’s a little unfair.
There is a secret 4th reason and that’s that you’re scared to screw it up and want it to be perfect on the day. However, I believe that no-one is more qualified at doing your own hair and make up than yourself. This is simply because you live with your own face, you have to do something with your own hair every day.
If you’re still not set on the idea, then you should at least TRY and do your own bridal make up and carry out some trial runs before you commit to someone. You’ll probably be surprised with how good it looks and can save yourself hundreds of pounds.
5 Reasons to Do Your Own Bridal Make Up
You can have unlimited free practice
There are literally millions of resources online
You want to look like you and that includes the products and styles you like
Your bridesmaids will tell you if you’ve done it badly! (and they will help you fix it).
Conduct your trial runs at least. If you’re a woman in this century then chances are between friends and youtube you can save yourself some money. I probably could afford to have an artist but the truth is that I want to save some money. I want to be able to do it myself and put that money towards the travels on our honeymoon or our life together. My wedding will be special because it’s mine, not because everything is perfect.
