I’m going dress shopping today. Well, actually I think I’m going dress buying today 🙂 I’m 99% sure of my dress, but I want to go try it on again before making the big decision.
Anyway, I’m considering going and getting my makeup done before my appointment (I’m already doing my hair) so I can get a good idea of what the whole look will be. Does anyone know where I could get it done for free? I was thinking one of the counters at the Bay or Sears would likely do it, but I’m doubting myself. What about The Body Shop? Would they do it?

Sephora or a MAC store/counter will do it for you, the counters at the Bay are also a good idea!
Idk if the body shop has makeup artists at all?

I think you have to purchase a product in order to get a “free” makeup application at MAC.

I’mot sure about ‘free’ but most makeup places will do your makeup if your purchasing their products. Shoopers drug mart makeup sections will def. do it.
if your looking for free, can you ask one of your friends who is good with make up to doll you up before you go dress buying? That way you can at least get a different perspective on make up.

@DeathByDesign: Depending on where you’re located, some MAC stores make you buy product, while other charge you for the application…either way you’re looking at about $65.
I don’t know any that do it for “free” without having to buy anything….I feel like Sephora charges you, but maybe I’m wrong…

I had thought about MAC, but thought I had heard that you had to buy $50 in product before you got the ‘free’ makeover. I like MAC as much as the next girl, but that’s not really in the budget right now. Anyone know if it really is $50?

Oh, I’m ok with not completely free, was just hoping for not $50-60 :). Thanks!

If there’s a sephora near you i’d try them first…..i know they let you test stuff for free, plus if you have to buy something there’s more selection (you could buy perfume etc instead of just makeup).

Every MAC store I’ve ever had my makeup done at asked me to spend $50… I have even had to make appointments on a Saturday since they’re busy and you may have to wait a while to see a MUA
Sephora does free make up application, no product purchase required but they will only do half of your face or just eyes or something. That’s their express services. For a full make up consult they do require a $50 purchase as well and then you get a 60 minute appointment (you can’t just walk in for this either).
I would not even bother with too much make up. One of the stores I went to asked me to not wear make up because it rubs off onto dresses.

Not to rain on your parade… But have you double checked with the dress store thatthey don’t want you to be make up free? Some require that so that the gowns you try on don’t get dirty!
