Call MAC and see if they have a purchase policy for products if you get your makeup done at their counter.  I certainly don’t think you need to buy ALL the products they use, but it would probably be a good idea to buy one or two products – just think of it as the price of your makeup application and you get to keep the product they use afterward!  If you feel you need to explain why you’re not buying more, tell them you already have other similar products at home but you’ll come back to stock up when you run out.  But you don’t really need to justify it, I don’t think they would expect you to buy everything they use on your face.

I just had my epics this weekend and stopped by the MAC counter. I had to go the day before to get a lesson since Macy’s didn’t open in time on the day of my shoot.

You’re definitely not obligated to buy and they’re always friendly at MAC. They did a great job in teaching me how to do it all myself (I spent 1.5 hours there!) I did end up buying a lot, but I needed to replace all my makeup anyway. Plus, I figure it’ll go to good use with a year of wedding events ahead.

When I called both Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s there is no application charge, but usually the customer buys one or two items. There is an application charge at MAC standalone retails stores though.
