As I've mentioned a few times on the blog here, I'm not much of a makeup person. And whenever I do throw on some eye shadow or lipstick my friends and Matt notice because hello! It's a change. And I like a change every now and then.
And I sort of want a change for my wedding. But that's where the issue comes in. I want someone to do my makeup for me on my wedding day, but I don't want it to overtake my face. I don't want the makeup to wear me, I want to wear makeup and still look like myself.
Basically I don't want to look like this:
Not a problem right? Wrong.
I mean I could do my makeup myself or enlist the help of a friend for cheap but I don't want to add any more duties to my friends or put that sort of pressure on them to make me look kick ass. But at the same time every makeup artist that has responded to me so far has been no less than $200 for a trial run and day of makeup.
Um. Say what!?
$200 for my makeup? Makeup that I guarantee will be easier to apply than most girls because I'll probably nix a lot of froofy ideas and want to go pretty plain Jane with a bit of flair. I just can't stomach that price, it seems ridiculous to me.
So what should I do?
Go to a counter demonstration and have professionals how to do my makeup myself? Keep looking and hope there's someone out there that's more afordable? Try and bargain with the ones that have already responded? Enlist the help of my makeup savvy friends? Wear a paper bag over my head? (I kid on that last one)
So freaders, what would you do in my situation? Or if you got married, what did you do?
I thank you all already for being awesome and helping me through my oh-so-pertinent dilemmas, haha.
