MAC make-up artist... good pricing...

Hello Ladies- So yesterday I went to the MAC counter at Macy's in Boynton to get new powder. Nicole, let me know she thought I was wearing the wrong powder even though I have been wearing it for the past few years. She put a new one on me and VOILA! She was so right. So she played around for a while and we got to talking. I asked if she does weddings (isn't that what we all do now?) cause her make-up looked great. She said she does and she charges $45 pp. I asked how much for the bride and she said, and I quote "why, are you going to wear that much more make-up then your bridesmaids"? I think that was the part where the heavens opened up and the angels started singing. I haven't gotten a quote less than about $25 extra for the bride. Lots of people were charging 75, 100. So, I plan on doing a trial with her. She said also no traveling charges or anything. So, we'll see what happens. Just wanted to let you girls know. Oh, also, those of you that used MAC artists that freelance, did you make them sign contracts? Or just hope and pray that they really do show up?

    Wow- I think you found a winner- I think its stupid that they charge the bride that much more unless something additional is included- like lashes, gloss, liner, etc. Anyway, when I used Augustine (freelancer for MAC) we didnt have a contrat. I was a little nervous, but after my first at home trial with when he did my makeup for my shower, I felt comfortable with it. He was early and printed his own directions off mapquest, and was very easy. I know it totally depends on the person... but having a contract with someone who really isnt a WEDDING VENDOR doesnt mean much to me anyway. In reality they could still not show up even with the contract and then what? It's not like we are seriously going to sue... well, not me anyway. I figure that as long as you are in regular communication with them then you are fine.. just my 2 cents.

    I totally agree about the contract. Just seeing if maybe it "scared" vendors more to know that they signed something ya know? I'm hoping I don't have to deal with that but when it comes to make-up artists that are freelance it worries me a little more haha.

    That IS a good price.  And I love "the heavens opened up and and the angels started singing" -  you crack me up!!!!!  But it IS stupid that they charge so much more for the brides.

    i think that's a great price.  Always have pictures and ideas of the styles you like and the look that you're trying to achieve. I think you'll be ok. If it goes all wrong, just wash it off and start again.

    I think you may have found a hidden gem. Hopefully all the knotties demanding her services won't jack up the prices. I know you said no travel fees but I wonder if she'd be willing to come all the way down to Miami to do my girls... b/c if she would I'm sooo very interested!
