    @violet25:  I am the same way you are. I very easily could have done my own make-up, I actually do make-up for others all the time because people love how I do it but, I wanted something different for my wedding day and I didn’t want my nerves to be an issue. You will find someone, just keep trying. Have you tried going to a MAC store and working with one of those employees?

    @violet25:  I am pretty sure they do, at least the ones that work in the actual MAC stores.

    Keep looking! Try going online and looking for freelance artists, that’s where I found mine.

    They may just be busy. Its prom/grad/wedding season. Are you telling them that you have contacted other people and were not happy with your previous person?

    I had my makeup done at a high end salon. Have you checked into that? It worked out great. I’d keep trying to find someone, but rest easy knowing that if you don’t, you have a legit back up plan: to do it yourself (and spend the money you are saving on some new makeup, too!).
