I would pay up to a thousand dollars if I KNEW this person was the real deal, but these failed makeup trials at $200 a piece are killing me- and discouraging me..I had concluded after my last failed one by a so called pro (pshh) that I had to accept Id be doing my own..which I’d really rather not. I checked Katie B, and wish I had tried her initially but I thought her prices were too high for a trial. (i think it was around $500) Regardless she’s booked now so. Ugh. Any other brides seriously picky about their makeup in the OC that can relate/suggest? Im back to sending inquiries on weddingwire/project wedding, but thats how I found the last crappy one-and she had good reviews! What to do

Flawless Faces she’s located in Costa Mesa. Carina is the owner, she is amazing, but her whole team is just as amazing as her. If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County, she is Gretchen’s make up artist. I swear that isn’t the reason I booked her or even looked into her. LOL. Her trial is $130 for hair and make up. here’s her website:
Carina did make up for me and my bms and mom for our wedding day and Michelle did all of our hairs:

I’m not sure if you found someone yet. But, the girl that did my make-up and my bridesmaids as well as my mother-in-laws make up did a fantastic job! She also did a bunch of my other friends weddings. She just does a truly amazing job and is also super sweet. Her prices are soo affordable it will shock you! I paid $100 for my make-up and that included her driving to my house twice, once for the trial and once for the actual wedding day. At my trial I told her I wanted dramatic make-up, which she did. I ended up hating it and was so worried that on the day of the wedding I wouldn’t be happy with my look. Well, I wasn’t, I was extatic! I normally don’t wear make-up and was really worried about not looking like myself. Everyone commented, including my husband, on how amazing my make-up looked.
