Take a Lesson

"It's cheaper than getting your makeup done on the day of, and you'll have the skills for life," says Nam Vo, a makeup artist in New York City.

Or Book a Pro's Assistant

The fee is much less, but "they train with us for years, so they're very skilled," says Vo.

Do the Legwork

Instead of having a beauty crew come to you and your bridesmaids (it can up the price by hundreds), travel to a salon for your hair and makeup.

DIY Your Hair

Get a blowout for the rehearsal dinner, then twist it into a bun the next day. "Your strands will be smooth and easy to manage," says New York City hairstylist Naeemah Carre.

Enhance Your Eyes

Visit a department store beauty counter to have false lashes put on-they make a major impact for less than $10-then do the rest of your makeup yourself at home.
