I am looking for a good place to go get my makeup done for a boudoir shoot I am doing at the end of January. I don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money, either. If anyone has any recommendations for me, please let me know!
PS – I am in the Bucktown area and the photo shoot is downtown near the loop, so around one of those areas would be great. I will be getting my hair done in Lincoln Park, so that area is good too.

I’d recommend the Benefit store on Armitage (they have a Southport location as well). In October, I had my makeup done there for my engagement pictures and was extremely pleased. The artist, Nina M., did a great job and my skin looks amazing in our pictures. I’d never used Benefit products before, but the store is so cute and I fell in love with the products and "look" they gave me, so I’d definitely do it again. The makeup application is free as long as you purchase $50 worth of products, which you will want to do after seeing all of the great stuff they have. I had done some research because I didn’t want to spend a ton of money, and this was definitely the best deal I found since you will leave with some great products. I also considered the Aveda Insitute on Clark which is VERY cheap, but they were already booked for my time slot. Good luck!
