I've looked all throughout the DR forum and didn't see any topics about makeup. For past or future DR brides, who did you use/will you use to do your makeup? I'm a makeup fanatic, so I could definitely do it myself but I would prefer to hire someone to do it. Any suggestions?

I am getting married at Excellence. When I went in October to start the planning I had my make up done at the resort because I had the same concern. She did an ok job just not my style. She didn't really understand the language well so it was hard for me. I am going to have a good friend who is an esthetician with us for the wedding and she will be doing out make up. Your hotel may have a make up artist in the spa.

Yeah, I am considering the resort's spa, but I don't know if I've ever seen anyone that was 100% happy with their resort's makeup artist. My resort does have the option of having an artist come to the resort to do your makeup but it's for a min. of 4 people, which I don't have and also it costs $800 which I wouldn't pay. Oh well, I guess I'm on my own. You're so lucky your friend does makeup!

I will either do it at the resort or I'm considering checking out one of MAC's Studio Talk sessions geared towards bridal make-up and if they have some good suggestions, I will do my own. YouTube also has great tutorials on how to do your own! Unfortunately, it will just be the FI and me, so I won't have anyone with me to do it.

I am planning on having the resorts spa do my hair and makeup. That being said, I will probably also go to a makeup counter (e.g MAC or something like that) with either my MOH or one of my BM's to get my makeup done and buy a few things. That way, if I am not completely satisfied with what the resort does; I have a backup option and someone who was there when I had a trial who can help me.

Are the Studio Talk sessions an online thing or a store thing?

Yeah, I think I will go to a makeup counter and take a makeup inspiration picture, and let them pick out some colors for me. I'll probably end up doing it myself.

Studio Talks are held by a MAC professional who goes into your local department store counter and they taach you how to apply all the season's hot make-up trends as well as basic make-up techniques. I have a few friends who have gone and they have learned good tips. I also read online that they have some that are geared towards bridal makeup, so I want to check one of those out.
If your interested, you can check out the dates for your local event on MAC's website. I believe there is a cost associated with one of these, but you can apply the cost to make-up afterwards, so it's almost like you're walking out with free make-up or a free class, which ever way you look at it. smile29.gif

Hi iwantadreamswedding,

You're very welcome! On their website, they just show the events for the Studio Talk. I chatted with a live rep, and she told me I would have to call up the stores and find out if they are bridal-specific so I have to set aside some time this week to find out. The first one in my area is in 2 weeks. Apparently, they book up quickly.
If you go, let me know how you like it.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
