DIY: Make-Up Tips

April 11th, 2009 by     

I will probably do my own wedding day make-up as a DIY project, since I enjoy doing my own make-up and it’s an easy way to save money. I usually wear my everyday make-up to look natural and I was happy with the way my DIY make-up turned out in my engagement pictures.

To perfect my wedding day look, I plan on practicing over the next 5 months and taking pictures inside and outside to see what looks best. I also plan on writing down step-by-step what I am doing on these practice runs so that I know exactly how to recreate my perfect look, when I find it.

I found some great make-up tips online at‘s Insider Secrets. They have videos, step-by-step instructions, and even a shopping list of products to get the perfect look (although I plan on using different products that I am more familiar and comfortable with–and that are more affordable!).

For my wedding day look, I want to keep it on the natural side but highlight my eyes. Maybe something like actress Tracee Ellis Ross’ red carpet look. A little smoky, a little sexy, but not too much.



Since I plan on practing my make-up several times and taking pictures along the way, I hope I can avoid making any mistakes.  I thought this was an interesting article about wedding make-up to avoid.

DIY make-up can be tricky, especially if you are not used to doing your own make-up, but I look forward to crafting my perfect wedding day look.

Are you doing DIY make-up? If you did it, how did it turn out?
