DIY makeup

Well Im having trouble to see what I for my makeup. I wanted to get it done professionally but Im on a budget and ulta's salon does makeup for $30 but they dont open until 10am and my wedding is at 2pm and have to get my hair done and be there 3 hours before for the photographer to take girls pictures. Currently now Ive been trying I believe its almay's trio's for blue eyes but am not sure what is going to look good. I want a complete look that is going to last all day, something natural but not too light you cant see. I use a liquid liner on upper and auqa cream eyeliner from sephora for bottom. I need suggestions on my complete look. I was planning on using a photo ready liquid foundation. Would love suggestions!

    I would go to Ulta and ask them for advice on what they would be using on you if they were doing your makeup and then purchase that and play with it until you get the look you want.  Practice as much as you can between now and then so you're ready the day of.  I'm doing my own makeup, nails and my sister is doing my hair.  She's going to do a trial this weekend so we can see if she can pull off the look I want.  I'm going to be getting everything except my foundation this weekend (I know I'll be a lot tanner in 4 months) so I can get used to using it all.  Many people have posted about primer and setting spray or powder and I've never used either so I want to test them out beforehand.

    Agree with PP. Go to Ulta or Sephora and get a lesson and buy the products if you like them

    YouTube should be your new best friend.  Seriously, google the looks that you want and select the "Videos" tab-lots of great tips and how-to videos .

    FWIW, I'm really into makeup, so I've never used YouTube for that, but I did learn how to cut my own bangs watching YouTube videos, and that's a pretty big deal (have you ever seen someone with really messed up bangs?!)

    That is a great suggestion!  I'm good on my makeup, too, but my sister is doing my hair and it's not super complicated, but more so than she's done before and I've already found one how-to video that's very similar to what I want so this will be a big help!

    diamondsandheels14 is my favoite makeup poster for sure.

    And also, OP, if you go to Sephora, it only costs a $50 gift card to get your makeup done as a trial. I got mine done before engagement pics, and wound up spending more than 50 on stuff I wanted to buy anyways.

    To be quite honest with you, DIY probably won't save you tons of money unless you already have the majority of the makeup.  I used 20 different products to do my makeup.  

    I estimate that I spent at least $300 on makeup.That doesn't include the money I spent on some new brushes.   I don't regret it because I still use the tools and the makeup.  I also really sharpened my makeup application skills.  It's just something to think about.  It might be less expensive finding a salon to do the makeup for you.

    When I was a BM in my friends wedding, we all went down to the mall and had MAC do our makeup. It was the counter inside Macy's. They charge $50 and you get to pick out $50 worth of make up to take home in addition to them doing a full-face of makeup. Well worth it in my opinion.

    I am normally great with my own makeup, but I just wanted to "be pampered" a bit and possibly learn new techniques.
