I’m having my makeup done at Sephora. As long as you spend $50 or more they do your makeup for free. Most makeup counters will do the same. I’m doing it this way for a few reasons: 1) any salons/spas or people that will come to you to do makeup want $30-80. And you don’t get any product out of it. I’m always buying stuff at Sephora, so I’ll have no problem spending $50 there. 2) I’m very pale and most salons don’t carry a wide enough range of foundation. I’ve had my makeup done at a salon twice before and both times they couldn’t cover up any flaws/do foundation on me since their lightest shades were too dark. Since Sephora uses their testers, and they literally have dozens upon dozens of colours, they’ll be able to match my skin tone. They’re actually the only place I’ve been able to find foundation and concealer that’s light enough for me!

As for salon, no advice other than maybe try going to one that you think you might like for a cut and see how they do.
