A friend who's coming to the wedding is an experienced make-up artist (she used to work for MAC and does wedding makeup for friends now on the side), and she has offered to do my makeup for my wedding. My only reservation is that I'm worried about having someone who's not familiar with the demands of the heat and humidity of Hawaii do my makeup. My other option would be having Shelly at Mariah's Mane, who'll probably be doing my hair, also do my makeup (probably not airbrushed).
So, my question is, do you think it's more important to go with a local make-up artist (non-airbrushed), or would I be ok to go with my friend instead?
My preference would be my friend b/c she's good and I think she's excited about doing my makeup, but I don't want to risk my makeup melting off my face. : /
