Not yet decided on doing your own make up or opting for a pro to create the look you’re hoping for? Torn between the idea of doing your own make up for free or investing in an experienced industry pro? Why not consider having your make up done at a beauty counter in a department store instead? You can purchase the foundation and lipstick to touch your make up on later in the day (if neccessary) but it still might be cheaper than hiring a make up artist to attend your chosen wedding venue. This is a great alternative for those of you on a budget.
What’s more, they often run courses for you to learn how to do your own make up like a pro. This is a great idea for a hen party where you and your friends can attend a workshop and learn new skills that you can implement on your big day.
If you want, you can take it one step further and contact universities where students are looking for willing volunteers to train on. You’ll need to take great care in this instance but if you can guarantee the students are reliable and can take on board what it is you want, you could bag yourself and your bridesmaids and make up package for free!
