Did you pay for the first trial? The reason they charge is because they know people look around and want to be compensated for their time- so don’t worry about it too much.

You could say "It was so great meeting you for my trial recently.   In the end, I have decided to go with a different makeup artist."

Try – "Yea, I’m sorry. The "Tammy Faye Baker" look, just isn’t me so I’m going to go else where…."


Maybe just tell her that a family member is going to do it for you iinstead to save money. Or the truth works too…..lol. I suppose you don’t have to fib – Janna19 had a good one – and I’m sure it’s not the first time she’s been let down…

I have to do the same thing, and I’ve been putting it off!  I think people in the wedding industry understand completely, so just being direct ("I’m going with someone else") is best.

If she’s holding your date, please let her know as soon as you can.  She will probably appreciate knowing sooner rather than later.  Just be nice and direct. 


So glad you found someone fabulous!

I think theyre use to it just like when the girl highlights my hair and I dont like it. I just tell her! She’d probably appreciate it more!
