I haven’t had my makeup by Aveda but I do swear by their lip gloss. If the rest of their makeup products are comparable in quality of that, awesome. 🙂

I had my makeup done with Aveda products before my brother’s wedding.  I didn’t really like it just because I’m so not used to have pancake make-up on but everyone said it looked really good.  I guess my biggest complaint was that I had raccoon eyes by the end of the day

I had my make up done by them my first go round…. they did a good job but it felt like I had a mask on, so I didn’t really like it. Mind you I was sick with an over active thyroid at them time so I was overheated 24/7… so that may have had something to do with it. lol

I did REALLY love their lip gloss though as techie said and for years after it was the only kind I bought!

I didn’t have full makeup from Aveda but I had someone who had done my hair for a few years come to my location to do my hair and makeup and she brought me a smaller sized lip gloss to use all night and it was great!

i love aveda hair products but not their makeup because i like more vibrant colors for my eyes and feel that aveda is just too conservative.  i really do like their lip glaze in the mango juice color.

my aveda stylist does wedding hair and makeup and she does a great job.

I had my makeup professionally done by a makeup artist recently for a photo shoot, and they told me they cake it on because makeup in general looks way too subtle in photos.

they cake it on and it ends up looking really weird by the end of the day. I had long dredlocks at my sister’s wedding and wanted simple makeup- the lady ended up making me look like a drag queen. For serious. It was awful and I had to go and completely redo it all!

Oh dear, now I’m scared…I’m having my hair and makeup done at an Aveda salon.  I don’t want it to be caked on!! I NEVER wear much makeup…

Oh well, I have my trial next week, so I guess I can wait and see.  I will tell them to go light, pictures be damned…

I actually work at an Aveda salon, I do hair and makeup.  I like their products and I am using their makeup for my wedding which is this Sunday

Also, doing a trial is the best way to go because you will see if your makeup lasts through the day.  If you don’t care for how they do your make up, try MAC. Sometimes they will do it for free if you buy a product.  I am not knocking my AVEDA family by any means, I am just a bride giving advice to a bride.

Good luck!

I had my hair and makeup done at an Aveda salon.  They definitely didn’t cake it on – I wear very little makeup in my everday life, and wanted to look like myself at my wedding, so I told them to keep it light and natural and they did.

Shoot! Half of my above post got erased! 

I was saying that at AVEDA we are taught to layer the make up because it helps it stay on longer.  That is why you get that “caked on” feel. 

I love their makeup products, but if you have oily skin, the makeup may slide off.  I have dry skin so it works great for me.  If you have oily skin have them use the dual foundation on you it is an awesome powder with great coverage.  If they use the tinted moisture then the dual foundation, see how it lasts through the day.  I use both and its great, but like I said if you have oily skin it may be too moist for you.

I would recommend they use the matte eyeshadows on you too.  The shimmery ones have too much shimmer for my taste, and too much shimmer reflects too much light in photos. My suggestion is to let the makeup artist do one eye and them take a picture of it.  It may look like a lot in person, but in photos it will look fabulous!  Trust me.  I had a bride that didnt want to wear mascara so I did one eye with, and one eye without, then took a picture, the eye that had no mascara disappeared and the eye with mascara popped beautifly. 

Good luck!!!

@lillikins611: Thank you so much, this is very helpful!! I don’t have oily skin, so hopefully that won’t be a problem.

I had a trial done with Aveda. I loved it.. until the next day when my face broke out in a rash. Apparently I had a delayed allergic reaction to it. Going back to find out what specifically caused it, as my eyes were fine.
