You usually have to buy a few items (around $50 for some places) to get a trial done at the counter, so I might not consider it a huge money-saver. I would ask around if anyone has a friend who does makeup–it’s so much easier when they come to you and then you could get a trial as well!

I’m using a make-up artist since a good portion of my budget is going to photos.  But I could’ve had my sis do my makeup because she handles does everyone’s makeup for special occassions.  But I have 3 sisters so there won’t be enough time, so I’m having my own for the day.

I agree w/ talibear, see if you have a friend or a sister who is good w/ makeup and have her do a trial.  Since you’re on a budget, it will definitely be the better route.

I agree if you are on a really tight budget.   However, if you do wear makeup and can afford to spend $50, I would go to the MAC counter and have them do it.  They usually recommend you schedule an appt for a “full face”.   Whenever I have a special occation I have one of the artists do me.  It isnt often and I dont mind spending the money because I’m just buying more products that I will use.  One of the MAC artists is doing me and my bridal party on the side.  MAC is the best product I have used EVER!   It really lasts ALL day with very very little touch up if any at all.  Its amazing how long the eye shadows stay on.  At least purchase their eyeshadow and lipglass to have your firend put on if you decide to have her do it.  I promise you will be impressed.  Good luck.
