Who are you using for wedding day hair and makeup or are you going to DIY? Is anyone using (has anyone used) Sephora/ Ulta/ other makeup stores or counters?
A little background: I am strongly considering DIY for my hair and makeup because I really only want a half-up/ half-down hairstyle and can't fathom spending the 100$ (or more) prices I've been quoted for an "updo" or prices I've seen quoted for makeup. I do have a friend who is great with makeup and has helped several of our friends with theirs for their own weddings. She has offered to help me (unsolicited) and she will be a guest at our wedding.
I had considered going to Sephora or Ulta to have my makeup done (making an actual appointment and being transparent that this is for a wedding and NOT going in and lying that I just want to try a new look). That ranges from 30-50$. Anyone have experience with this? Suggestions needed please.
