Where to get your makeup done
I'm going to a wedding next month and am going to see everyone alive who is related to me. People who I havent seen in years and unrelated guys I used to have a crush on (so you can imagine). I just had this MAJOR weightloss and look rather...unrecognizable. I'm 17 by the way.

I want to stay true to my roots in terms of style (80z mod meets black and white rock 'n' roll you know?) so I am wearing a black silky dress is only up to below the knee with strappy black heels and firecracker red nails (toes and hands).


MY QUESTION ISSS...

where do you recommend I get my makeup done. A place that can adapt to my style. I dont want pink and typical wedding makeup. I want funky (but not too crazy) smokey black around the eyes (as I have really light green eyes so they pop).

any suggestions on a hairdo by the way? I have a really funky layered(long) haircut and black hair.

I was considering MAC or the NARS or CHANEL counters.

once I discovered Laura Mercier, I was hooked - but that's just my humble opinion....but whatever you choose, make sure you're firm on the look you're going for...

I've never heard of that.

Has anyone ever gotten their makeup done at MAC?

I would in a heartbeat but what throws me off is that you get a free makeover with a $40.00 purchase. Do you think they would try a little less hard and what not?

I would do the make up myself... but practice a little first; look at magazines to get ideas... Everytime someone else does it... it's never as careful "perfectionistic" as when I do it...

I'd say try MAC, but do a trial first to see if it's what you like. I know it would be a little expensive to have your make-up done for no reason especially, but this seems like it would be a really big night for you, and I think that's worth it.

I think MAC is a good idea for your style, but the charge is so strange to me since I've never been charged ... but I know practices vary from region to region. Since I wear MAC, I'd have no trouble spending $40 ... I could easily spend more stocking up on Blot Powder Light

I should add that I've never had them do my makeup for an occasion, just to try out various things I was thinking about buying.

Btw, congrats on the weight loss

Oh yes, I should've mentioned that! Congrats on your weight loss, and good luck about seeing everyone again - I'm sure you'll make a great impression!
