@MissKit:  Does she have pictures of make-up she’s done for weddings?  I’d say if you like her work, you might as well do a trial with her.

@MissKit:  I used to be one. They are not licensed professionals. They go to 2 seminars every year to get updated on new products. It’s mostly on the job training. This particular consultant you spoke with may very well have gotten her license on her own somewhere else but it is not something that is required or provided by Clinique.

@MissKit:  I say go with someone you already know And trust. Maybe she’ll even give you a discount since she’s doing your hair also. $50 is worth the peace of mind on a day when you want to look your very best.

@MissKit:  Chances are she will use her line of makeup if she works for a cosmetic company.  They can do makeup but that doesnt mean they are good at it.  I have seen many many horrific faces! They do go to a beauty school but it is really up to them as to where their skill is.  I would go to the counter and act like a customer and ask for a makeover and see if you like it.  Those are free by the way. They cannot make you buy products.

Even if you go with a professional or a liscensed make-up artist you still may not like their “style”. I would do a trial to be sure either way.
