I used Visage Joli for myself and Bridal Beauty Chicago for my BMs.  Both were great.  I also used Jules Fleming for BM makeup for myself for another wedding recently and really liked her – her website is spellbindingcolorconcepts.com

I used Ashley Condron for hair and Rachel Reiman for makeup.  Info here: http://www.rcbeauty.com/.  They were not cheap, but they both did an excellent job and were very nice to work with. 

For hair, it was $75 for my trial and $150 for the wedding.  For my bridesmaid, it was $75.  For makeup, it was $150 including trial.  I did the trial the day of my engagement photos in order to get my money’s worth, and also see how the makeup looked in photos (great!).  She charged $75 to do makeup for my mom.  Like you, I don’t wear a lot of makeup so I was looking for something more natural, but that would also photograph well, and I was really pleased with what she did.

There’s a ton of makeup artists with residencies at Lacuna Artist Lofts.  Maybe try checking out who has space there? Also I bet if you call the Paul Mitchell or the Aveda schools, you can find someone there as well?

I’ve only ever gotten my makeup done at Benefit in Lincoln Park but I’m sure you could work it out to send one of their artists down to your hotel as well. Good luck!!

@KayDeee:  My event hasn’t happened yet, but I’ve booked both my hair and makeup on location starting at 5am (for my 10:30am ceremony) with one of the Nika Vaughan artists.  http://www.nikavaughan.com/

We haven’t done a trial yet, but one of my coworkers used them for her wedding and they all looked phenomenal!
