This is also what I am thinking. I really wanted to bring in an outside make up artist, but I'm stuck on the vendor fee. It is just me - no bridal party - so the vendor fee is way more than the fee to do my make up. PLUS, my fiancé feels strongly that I should look like ME on our wedding day. So, I'm hesitant to go to out of the ordinary on my make up (no lashes). I've heard the resort doesn't use very high quality make up so I may get a lesson and practice ahead of time so I can do it myself.
I'll have my hair done at the spa - I may do a trial once I get there just to make me feel better about it. I want my hair up, but I don't want it to look super formal. More beachy.
I also want to look like me but also want flawless photo skin ha! I know I can have both, but need some help!
I am still undecided about going to MAC or doing it at the spa, but atleast with MAC I get the products to keep. My bridesmaid married last year and had the MAC lady come to her home to do her makeup - she was good, so if we do this we plan to use her.
I have shorter hair (chin length) so there isn't much that can be done. I am going to get a trial at home with my stylist and we are going to take a lot of pictures and hope she can reproduce.
