Usually, when I attend formal occasions, I always have a dilemma whether to go to a salon or to do my make up on my own. For the wedding that I recently attended, I decided to do it on my own and just use the money to buy additional stuff.
Youtube has a lot of make up tutorials that can help you do your own make up. For my look, I followed Michelle Phan's Seductive Smokey Eyes Tutorial video.

I did a practice run and this is what I came up with.
For pictures on how I looked like on the actual day itself, click this link. I was satisfied with my make up but not with my hair :( It has been my downfall ever since. Is there a tutorial you can recommend for DIY hairstyles for formal occasions?
