i’m booking trials for my make up right now. i’m curious, how many other people tried before they found the one. did you book a bunch and then compare? did you just do one and then keep looking if you weren’t happy with it? is it worth it to try people that used air brush & traditional to see which you preferred?

i just chose 1 based on reviews and did a trial with her. if i didn’t like her, i would have looked for another, but those trials can get expensive when you add them up! the mua should be able to do traditional base to show you, the wipe it off and do airbrush so you can see the difference.

@MrsE.ToBe : I don’t know about anyone else, but I had my Fiance ask a model friend to do my make-up. and she is AMAZING, too. I drool every time I see her photos (over her make-up, mind you :P). IF another friend comes, I’m certain she’ll be in on making me over, too, since she also does amazing work with make-up.
If I had to find someone, I’d probably go to several before choosing the “perfect” one. Mostly because each one is different. You could also ask friends who have been married or have been in weddings if they used one and who they used.
good luck with the trial!!!!

short answer–just one, but i went to sephora to get back up products in case i hated mine. i actually didn’t have a trial until the week before my wedding, bc my hair stylist for several years told me she’d do my make-up. i had gone to sephora to get a make-over and i loved the make-up they used, so i bought a lot of the products and took it with me to the trial. i actually really loved the way my trial went, even more than the sephora make over, though on the wedding day i asked her to use my new foundation from sephora instead of the one she had used since i liked mine better. so it all worked out fine.

@kitzy: that’s a good point that at 1 trial they could show me both foundations. it does seem like MUAs have a definite preference! i guess i can have them show me the traditional 1st and then try the airbrush, that way i can leave it on for a long time to see how it hold up for me.

I booked a higher end hair/makeup salon based on their reveiws and word of mouth. I only had one trial and the girl did an awesome job.
