@janetsnakehole I just want to say that you are obviously a good person who understands that the  “wedding industry” rips people off cause they know once it’s a wedding they can charge as much as they want for any service!

Giving a good deal to brides knowing you will still make money is awesome! And giving great free advice is super sweet as well. Don’t let Styles bring you down!

You dont get it, so sorry if it makes me a jerk. You dont seem to know enough about the wedding industry or business as a whole to get my point.. Im just talking about thumbtack IN GENERAL not just for makeup service.

Buyer beware did not just come out of thin air.. Its been said for years you usually get what you pay for. I want brides we be aware of thumbtack in general so they dont get burned! Im sorry in the wedding industry TT is looked down on and filled with many crappy services. Too many vultures in this business and I want brides aware so they can make informed good choices. So I gave my opinion.

Sorry you’re offended by my professional opinion about thumbtack because once again I didnt say there was anything wrong with you or the service you offer.

You can look up tons of negitive reviews about thumbtack.. They even have some at the BBB.

@Styles:  Thank you for the advice. I totally understand her onsite fee & I was actually quoted a $95 per person, per hour fee by another salon (they don’t do airbrush), so a one time $95 fee is actually more reasonable.

@janetsnakehole:  I’m in a small town outside of Phoenix, AZ. There are a lot of artists in the Phoenix area & I assume their prices are more competitive, but I would have to pay them to make the two hour drive, so it would probably end up being more expensive in the end. I booked the trial with the artist, so hopefully it works out.

Here’s another questions for you ladies: I know I’m the only one who wants/needs airbrush and I still want to book the first makeup artist I went to for the rest of the bridal party. How do I go about telling the first makeup artist? Do you think she will be upset and not want to do my wedding party if I don’t use her for my makeup? We are already going to have two hair stylist & now two makeup artists on site for the day. I’m just hoping they are willing to work together. It’s not that I didn’t like my trial with the first MUA, regular makeup just doesn’t last on my skin. And she uses mac & my skin is super sensitive & breaks out with mac products. I know my girls can’t afford $55 for just their makeup. I think I will end up having my mom be the other person to fulfill her minimum charge. 

Thanks for the help ladies!

Nevermind! I just talked with the original makeup artist & she’s totally fine with working with the airbrush artist. Hopefully the airbrush artist feels the same. Thanks again for the advice.

Hi (again) janetsnakehole!

This might be a toughie….my MUA recomended for me to buy the lipstick she used in the trial (mac pro longwear in soft sell) but I found it too plummy compared to what I wanted, so I haven’t bought it yet.  My wedding is next week (!) and I’ve yet to find a lipstick colour that is what I want.  I think the pigment of my lips is messing me up and I can’t tell what to buy (and I’ve already bought 4, got them home only to find they chap my lips or end up too peachy-brown).

I’m going for a very warm shell pink (think ballet slippers?) or something like this lip colour:

Can you give any suggestions? What lip colours do you most often put on brides? Something soft and MLBB or more of a pop?

Lately I have been feeling that traditional foundation is too heavy and artificial looking for my skin so at first I used tinted moisturizer instead but now I’m using a BB cream. I like how natural it looks but I’m so greasy by mid day! It’s gross. I don’t think it’s product failure, I think it is because I use retin a. Have you ever heard of rent a causing oiliness? And what are your thoughts on BB creams? I totally hear you on how awesome airbrushed foundation is but I’m trying to simplify and streamline my beauty routine, trying to become less high maintenance! Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

@janetsnakehole:  Thanks! I tried bare minerals but it makes my pores look HUGE and I feel like I’m brushing in circles forever but I never can get the coverage right. Probably user error. I wear make up everyday, unfortunately because i have an office job and I’m getting of the age where I really need to, even on weekends- boo.  Too cute about you’re little zombie.
