Been reading that MAC does the same, but that they can be hit & miss. They have some good videos on their site for how tos as well for DIYers. I am in the middle of researching for makeup & hair, and the prices I have seen/been quoted are kind of scary. MAC is known for high quality makeup that stands up, since a lot of stage performers/drag queens/film people use it.

If you have a Sephora near you I’d recommend going there – that way you can use almost whatever brand of makeup you want! I love Bare Escentuals – that’s what I’ll be using I think on the big day!

Wow Im suprised they still do free makeovers.Thats amazing though! Most counters will only do makeup on one side of your face for free, and if you want the whole thing you have to pay. Mac used to change $40 dollars in products, but my sister recently called nordstroms and they now charge just $40 and not on cosmetics. Clinique has some great products, I think its worth the try. I just discovered their foundation its really light I love it. I hate their toner though, they are one of the only makeup counters that still use alcohol in their toner (so bad for your skin). I think they should do a great job just tell them exactly what you want. good luck!

Bare Escentuals charges $25 in makeup purchases- so it’s kind of a steal if you have one nearby- that way you can do a “trial” and a “day of” makeup run! :o) Good luck! I’m DIYing my makeup all the way (for now, until I chicken out hehe).

I’ll be using a Clinique salesman! Hes my good friend’s roommate and he said he’d do it for a small fee and he’d stick around to touch up after the first set of photos! Maybe see if the girl who does your free trial will set up a contract if you offer to pay her/him a bit. This way you won’t have to drag yourself to the mall on your wedding day!

Just a thought 🙂

My friend did this for her wedding…she went in early and had her makeup done before her hair…it worked out well.

My mom works at Clinique and does brides’ make-up. Their rule is buy three products and get a free makeover. I personally think this is the best option if you can’t afford a make-up artist. Just make sure the you have someone who’s experienced. A lot of the younger girls just work there part time and don’t have as much experience.

One of my favorite on line makeup artist has a site dedicated to makeup and hair styling tutorials. Her videos are great quality and easy to understand. She uses products that can be found anywhere and she also tells you where to buy them online.

I didn’t go to Clinique on my wedding day, but I use several of their products and have gotten makeup there before.  In general it’s pretty light makeup, but I’m sure they can cater to what you’re looking for for your wedding day look!

I’m a fan of Clinique!

No, do your own.  I did my own and it was fine.  Just be calm and you’ll do fine.  It would be better to do your own than end up with some random stranger who does something wrong with the makeup on the morning of your wedding or takes too long.  They might get mad at you too if they find out its for a wedding.  I’d do your own, it’s not that hard and then you’ll know it will turn out the way you like it.

I think it’s a good idea but it’s sort of hit or miss because you don’t know how good they are until after they have done your makeup already.  Unless you go once and then go back again on your wedding day.
