Hi Chicago-area brides! I am looking for someone for on-location wedding hair & makeup for me and some of my bridesmaids. I am Asian but most of my bridesmaids are not so I’m hoping to find someone with experience with a variety of face shapes and ethnicities.
I’m a bride on a budget, too, so I know that Sonia Roselli, etc. is out 🙁 Anyone have any good freelancers they can recommend?

@Gnahzmap: I do wedding coordination on the side and many of my Asian brides went with Mary Yu from beautifulyu.com. I don’t think her pictures online do justice to the work she is capable of doing. Also check out stylesdowntheaisle as they provide discounts if you book early enough.

I am using Dana DiGuilio. Here is her fb link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dana-DiGuilio-Bridal-Boutique/191668927515975
She is very affordable and does an amazing job. If you book a trial with her, the money from your trial will go towards the price of the wedding day makeup.
I also know of a ton of other make up artists. PM me if you want the names. =)
