This may sound like a strange idea, but what about calling up a spa? A lot of them do facial treatments to “fix” bad skin AND offer makeup applications. Maybe one of the ones near you would be able to help you cover up your inperfections better than a traditional makeup artist–some of those salon/spas/plastic surgery places do all kinds of stuff besides the classic nip and tuck. The one place i’m thinking of is a “medical spa” and they have a whole room with makeup and everything in there.

Id ask the people that are saying “no” who they recommend since they are not available.  You will get the best recommendations that way because they are people that are in the business and know other peoples services.

First, I am sorry for this stress.

However, I am not quite understanding what is wrong w a make-up counter.  I would go to a place that specializes in hypoallergenic or clean makeup.  They probably would be better than even a normal makeup artist who may not have products tailored to your skin.

Also, have you considered a dermatologist? He or she could get your skin in shape for the big day.  

Lastly, know that you will be beautiful on your wedding day.  You husband will never have seen a more beautiful woman.

PS most derms can get rid of acne scars or significantly lessen them.

Many of the girls who work at department store counters do wedding makeup on the side. So if you go get a trial and like how it turns out, you could ask her to do your makeup on the day of or recommend one of her colleagues. 

Good luck!
