Hi bees! Who is doing or did your make up on your wedding day? I’m looking for someone to come down to the hotel we will be staying at in downtown Chicago and do my make up and perhaps sone of my maids… Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!!

I’m getting mine done at the salon were I’m getting my hair done but before that I was thinking about starting a relationship with someone at a make up counter (either at the dept stores or Sephora) and seeing if they’ll do my make up.

I’m using Makeup by Dana (http://www.makeupbydana.com) – still a month until the wedding, so I’ll try to remember to post an update, but the trial went well!

I used Kristen Repta and she can be reached at [email protected] You can also see her bio here (she is one of the makeup artists for Rachel Reiman):
I don’t wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis, so it was important for me to feel like myself, but just more made up. She did a phenomenol job! She used this MAC strobe cream that gave me that glow…not even sure she used foundation (which I never wear anyway), but the look was flawless. She also used individual lashes all the way across my lash line and it looked so much better than using a full set. I couldn’t even feel them. Seriously, I felt like a superstar! (BTW, she didn’t charge extra for lashes for me, Bridesmaid or Best Man, and mothers…most of the big name Chicago makeup artists charge $15-$25 extra for lashes).
Sometimes I feel like makeup artists don’t really listen when you say you want a natural look, but Kristen really did. I NEVER wear lipstick and I certainly didn’t want to start on my wedding day. She was totally on board when I said I wanted to wear what I always wear…Benetint lip stain (Posy) and clear gloss. I don’t like to post pics on WB, but if you are interested, I’d be more than happy to share one via email if you PM me your address. Sorry I wrote a book 🙂

I went with the Bridal Beauty Salon – http://www.stylesdowntheaisle.com/
I used Jill for makeup and Lati for hair for me and my girls. They came to our site in the loop and did a fab job on all of us! PM me if you’d like pictures 🙂

We used Maris from Blend Beauty (formerly known as Cynthia Sally Hair & Makeup Artistry) – she was awesome! http://blendbeautystudio.com/ We also had Becky do our hair, she is great as well.
