I love doing my makeup every day and I take a little pride in the fact that I can make my eyes look awesome if I take the time! I decided though that I would go and try to see what it looked like if someone at Estee Lauder did it to see if I wanted to buy stuff myself and do it. I was originally going to go to a Mac store but couldn’t find them. While I really liked the second makeup trial she did I keep thinking that maybe I should go to a professional and see what it looks like sprayed on (my mom has been suggesting this to me for a little while). I’ve also been thinking I should go to Mac after all to see what it looks like.
But what do you think? Am I just being too picky going to three different places to decide on my wedding makeup?

I think that if you’ve got the time, the money, and the inclination, it’s absolutely fine to be picky and to shop around! Makeup is clearly a passion of yours, so I think it’s worth it to satisfy your curiosity.

I love MAC. It took me a few tries at their counter to get the right girl for me, but in the end I am VERY happy with what they do for me when I am going to events.

@tksjewelry: definitely agree. It took a few times to find the person that would take their time with me, match me right and explain things. He ended up being the guy that brought me back to MAC. I love Studio Fix and their Mascara!

I don’t know how much a trial costs, if anything, so as long as you can afford it, I don’t see what the problem is. You want to look your best and if Estee Lauder or MAC or some pro has a technique you like, you could learn it, or have them do it for your wedding. So, it certainly doesn’t hurt to try them all out. We have all seen how capable you are with a makeup brush, so if you hate what they do, you will still be in good hands.

Make-up is important! Shop around and find the one you LOVE. What can it hurt? If nothing else, the day of, you wont be wondering if you could have found better.

Estee Lauder usually is free for trial. MAC charges 50, you have to purchase 50 bucks worth of product from them for a trial.

@In the media: thank you so much for that kind comment!
@tksjewelry: also, does it cost something to get a trial done at MAC? The woman at Estee Lauder was very kind and said that I didn’t need to buy anything in order to get it done.

@SweetRose2011 – the one near me only asks that you buy $50 worth of product on the weekends, but the weekdays are free. I buy most of my make up there and that will be about the time I need to get new, so it works out perfect for me. On the weekends they also take reservations for timeslots.
