I also plan to do my own make-up.. I'm on the hunt now for a great stay put make-up. Right now I use Estee Lauder stay put or something of that nature and it lasts all day, but I'm thinking of going to MAC or somewhere else like that to find a really good makeup that will withstand the heat if needed. I also have combo skin so I'm a tough one to please. (
As far as hair, I plan to do a mock trial at home soon to see if my hair will cooperate, take a pic, then take it to the ME salon unless someone in my family can master the skill.
