I say suck up the $60 and find a new artist, a leave a comment about her under vendor reviews in the knot as well(if possible)! She probably pays for that advertising. She seems incredibly unprofessional and sneezing/coughing all over is so unhygienic I probably would’ve just walked out right then.

@psb23:  Yikes! Some major red flags there. I’d gladly give up the $60 and find a new MUA.

@psb23:  I would definitely look elsewhere. There are plenty of talented hair and make up artists that are much more professional. The day of your wedding you want to be confident in all of your vendors, you’ll have enough to stress about.

I’m not sure if she was going to come to you on the day of, but if you were planning on going there, that’s a lot of filth when you want to feel pretty and clean! Plus, who knows if she won’t have round 2 of a cold and be hacking in your face… These winter months can getcha.

That’s what trial runs are for though! Just be thankful you found this out early and have the opportunity to find someone new. That sure would have been a disappointment to find out on the day of the wedding.

@psb23:  Um I swear I went to the same vendor LOL! I had a really bad hair and make up trial too with a partnership. The trial was awful, the hair and markup disgusting and it was at the MUA’s house with a million cats running around. I was miserable by the end.

If you have doubts find someone else. On your wedding day you want to be 100% satisifed and sure of every single vendor you have hired.

The trial shouldn’t be a quick run of the day of look – the whole point of it is to do everything exactly like it will be done the day of.  That way you can tweak what you like or don’t like.  I would run for the hills and forget the $60.  Scary!

Once she started coughing and sneezing on me I would have ran like hell out of there so fast! I say get another makeup artist!

A lot of one man shop venders use their homes to do their work (our cake baker being one) so that wouldn’t be to sketchy for me, but what gets me is that she is sick and didn’t let you know to possibly reschedule.  Also, yes, a trial is for the full look.  Why do a trial if it is half done…

Yeah, I think for that much money she definitely needs to be more professional!
