Anyone have recommendations on good makeup artists in Chicago? I’m thinking of just going to Laura Mercier at one of the big department stores, but am looking for other independent options, too. Any feedback on what sort of prices to expect would also be greatly appreciated.

You absolutely should look into Andrea Rappaport. She’s lovely to work with, has no minimums, travels on location, and does really beautiful work. You can see my makeup trials with her in my Knot bio at http://community.theknot.com/cs/ks/user/page.aspx?username=chibride08&MsdVisit=1
PM me if you want her contact info as she doesn’t advertise.

I second Andrea Rappaport (she rules), but I heard that she is moving to Texas in December 🙁 Just in case your wedding is next year…

Sonia Roselli has high minimums, so be aware of that.Â That’s why I skipped her altogether.
I’m using Makeup by Dana- Dana Armstrong.Â I already had my trial (included in price), and it was fantastic!Â When I booked, she was charging $125 for the bride (airbrush foundation, false lashes if wanted), and $75 for anyone else (regular foundation, lashes extra).
She’ll travel to you for no extra charge, if it is within a reasonable distance from Chicago.Â She has no minimum- she’ll travel to only do your makeup, for example. She’s a gem!

I had fake lashes applied at the Chanel counter in Saks on Michigan Ave, and the makeup artist was outrageously nice and mentioned that she does wedding makeup. I can dig up her card if you want it! Also, I have a trial with Beauty on Call:http://www.beautyoncall.com/
My friend is using them for her wedding, so she sent me their site. I’ll be sure to let you know how the trial goes

There are plenty of affordable Wedding makeup artist located in Chicago. Allow yourself enough time to run a trial with a couple artist to ensure you look your best.

I’m using Starlight Makeup Lillian Toma. No minimums and they will travel to you. I’m doing a free trial with them in March. Super nice.
