I always LOVE the way they do my makeup, so I always tip between 15-20$, they are super happy and always remember me when I come back 🙂

Last time I went the MU did a wonderful job so I gave him a 20% tip – I felt he really took his time so it was well deserved and appreciated.

I had no idea you were supposed to tip at the MAC counter.  Are you supposed to do this with just a general make-up application too?  I had one done with my friend a while ago at a little event they had and did not tip.  I just thought they got paid on commission so I bought some of the products they used, even though I didn’t really need them.

@barndance: I’ve never heard that you are “supposed” to tip at a cosmetics counter.  Like you, I’ve always thought that buying at least one or two of the products that they show you is the standard compensation for their time.  I suppose tipping is generous, but not necessary.

I would tip, especially if the trial is free. I also tipped when I got my makeup done at MAC a few months ago.

No. They don’t even work on commission and you pay for a makeover anyway. But if I was really thrilled with the outcome I probably would

I didnt even know you could get your makeup done at the counter. How much is it or do you just purchase stuff and then get it for free? Im going to have to look into this.
