I agree that you do need more makeup than usual for the pictures.  Are you allowed to transfer the deposit from one person to another?  The person might be upset that you cancel with them but it is business, and you want the person that is best for you.

I would rebook with the other person, and pay for the portion of time you spent with the other makeup artist (but did you sign a contract?  You might have to find out what you are legally allowed to do).  If you feel badly about switching, just give the girl a thank you card and a gift card to help make up for her time and to show that you appreciate her.

@Almost Mrs. Marshall:

I got a little scared there reading your blog title catchy though Laughing!  I am the same way as you if a person treats me well even if they don’t do things the way I ask them I stay and pay.  However, if after the 3rd trial or whatever trial number it is talk to the person doing the makeup and explain what you want .  Having pictures maybe of a magazine of what you exactly want done will help the makeup artist.  I say this because many of us are visual learners and what we see we can replicate.  However if even after you have shown them a visial it continues.  Let her know, however do not  bad mouth the makeup artist you firing.  Say pleasant comments about her such as “her style was unique and beautiful however I feel more beautiful being natural and more comfortable. even when bad remarks are made this will keep the environment lovely.

Yes, it will feel like a lot of makeup. How about you take some photos in your made up face, then see how you like THOSE photos? Becasue what feels like too much often translates to some really great “look like you” photography
