    Show me your wedding hair and makeup!

    Advertisements
    I'm a procrastinator.

    We're about 3 weeks from the wedding and I have no idea how I'm going to do my hair or how I'm going to do my makeup.

    My sister offered to do my makeup, but I hate the way she does her own makeup. It's always super heavy and just not me. I don't want to hate how I look on our wedding day.

    So show me how you did your hair and make up for your wedding! Any tips or tricks that you found useful? Did you pay to have yours done? I've been on the fence of hiring a stylist to do all that for me, but I just don't think we have it in the budget.

    I haired a hair stylist and makeup artist to do me and all of my bridesmaids and it was worth every penny.

    Here is how I had my hair and makeup


    And here is a picture to give you a better idea of how my hair was in the back

    Hair my cousin did and make up I did myself. I only wore eyeliner and mascara, I'm not a heavy makeup person either.

    You are seriously so stunning!

    I've looked at some stylists but some of the prices here are outrageous.

    I had one of those sideways braids and the rest was just loose curls It was a last minute decision and I let DH's sister and cousin do it I was not picky, that's for sure. I don't really have a pic showing my makeup but I only had a bit of pale eyeshadow, lip gloss and mascara.

    Thank you! Yeah they can get really expensive! My photographer recommended the girl who did my makeup and her prices were very reasonable. My hair was a bit expensive but that was because the girl came to the hotel and did it

    I would recommend asking your photographer if they have anyone that they like who isn't super expensive.

    These are the best I could find, I wanted pretty simple makeup nothing too crazy. My hair was all curled under my veil and put into a bun then bumped.

    ETA: My hair was $100 and my makeup was done by my MoH but if she'd done it for anyone else she'd have charged about $75
