Engagement photos?

Did you have your makeup professionally done or did you do it yourself?

    I did mine myself. (Pics on my website in siggy). I've also heard that a lot of people do their e-pics on the same day you do your trial run for wedding hair and makeup. Depends on if you are good at doing your own or not. HTH! :)

    I tried to go that route, but it just didn't work out. It was too hard to make the schedules work.

    PS   Your makeup turned out GREAT! Did you do it any different than your normal day to da?

    I did mine myself also, there are some pics in my bio. I kind of wish I would have had my hair blown out, but I guess I look "natural."

    doing mine myself. I'm basically the makeup artist of the family. I've done formal makeup for: prom, bridesmaids, MOB, and for a bride (my sister). their makeup lasted, and it looked good in both pictures and in person. to be perfectly honest, I think that paying what $75? to have someone put makeup on you is a waste of money. for those who aren't good at doing their own makeup (never moved beyond mascara and lip gloss or whatever), surely you know someone, a friend, who is good at doing makeup and can do yours for free or cheap.

    I went to the MAC store and had them do it.  It was a good option for me, because I didn't have to worry about doing it myself, but it was A LOT cheaper than getting a regular professional do it.
