Makeup artist recommendation - West Houston/Katy

I went to Aveda today for a hair consultation and to test out their makeup.  Unfortunately, yep, my skin is super-itchy and red now.  They said that even though it's "natural", it's not hypo-allergenic because there are perfumes and stuff in it.  So...  I'm not sure what to do now.  I am still getting my hair done there.  Should I take them my Clinique and have them apply that, go somehwere else (time issue) or find someone to come to me?  Anyone have recommendations?

    If you wear Clinique, you can schedule an appt at a Clinque counter to have your makeup done. I've seen them do really good bridal makeup.

    Also, have you looked at airbrush makeup? It is a little pricey, but lasts a long time and maybe it wouldn't bother your skin as much.

    Good luck :-)

    I recommend Empire Faces, they go on-location and I just did my trial with them. They do airbrush makeup & hair...turned out gorgeous. (Also do lashes there too.) They are super nice and pricing is very reasonable if you have a group too.

    Do you have pictures to share from your trial (sarahinlove24)? My trial was horrible with Empire Faces - I would recommend going to a salon to get a trial - if you can come to Houston - Beautique does a fabulous job.  I iniitally wanted someone to come on location to do my hair/makeup as well as my bridesmaids, but in the end, I was much happier going into the salon - the wedding day is extremly chaotic and the last thing you want to deal with is a housefull of hair/makeup artists and bridesmaids everywhere.  If you really want on-location, I have heard fabulous reviews from The Perfect Face (more expensive than Empire Faces, but WORTH IT).
