    For such a special occasion I would consider professional make up unless you are super awesome at it- mainly because a makeup artist will use stuff that works well with photography. And even though I know you're having an intimate wedding, I'm sure you'll have photos at some point and an artist will take that into account. JMO of course
    I did my own makeup for my wedding as well as another that I was bridesmaid for. I applied a bit more than usual but still looked like me, I don't know why more people don't do it

    Unfortunately I can't justify getting someone to come and do it professionally. On the rare occasions I've had it done professionally I always feel like a clown afterwards - it doesn't feel like it's *me*. I don't wear eye shadow or blush.

    Make up to the shops is eye liner, mascara and chapstick. Make up to the office is same again plus foundation/powder and lipstick/lip gloss. I think my newest make up is 3+ years old. I have 1 lipstick I like and there is about 2mm left of it. It's not sold anymore.

    I'm just not very girly-girl!!

    The local salon that I go to charges $150 for extensions. It's expensive but it would save a lot of stuffing around. Not sure what to do though.

    We're waiting to hear back if one of DF's friends who is an amateur photographer would be willing to do the photography. If he can't do it then we won't be having a photographer. I'm not really a fan of the usual staged photographs, I just one a handful of pics.

    I got eyelash extensions and yes they looked awesome for my wedding.
    They did not look at all awesome a fortnight later on my honeymoon when they started falling out & taking my own lashes with them

    Id go with false lashes for sure over extensions. Are you getting your hair done? An the hairdresser apply them or a close friend/bridesmaid

    I just read about extensions and the site I looked at are made from mink and fox fur ??!! Is that right? Not sure how I'd like to have the pelt of an animal attached to my eyes (no matter how tiny).

    Eww. Imagine if you had allergies. Surely most are acrylic?

    It explains why it's so expensive.

    I was wondering this too! The modelco one,I found made my lashes sticky and felt really weird. I'm keen to try this cherry blossom. Where did you get it from uniquey?

    I'm not sure Sonja, but I went and had a google at the Model Co ones and they certainly do seem similar, so I had a look at the reviews for the Model Co ones and they weren't very good, not compared to the Cherry Blooms one. I must admit before trying these I was a little sceptical but was really happy with the outcome, no clumping, not sticky etc.

    I got mine at a high tea function where they also had an boutique market to showcase various things and Cherry Blooms were there. I had remembered the brand as they were included in the Academy Award goodie bags. It's an Australian owned company and I *think* for now you can only get them online, not sure?
