Makeup...MAC at Nordstrom?

Has anyone ever had their makeup done here? Do you know if they'll do it for free more than once? Of course I would buy some of the products. BIL wedding is 10/1 and mine is 10/22. Was thinking of using 10/1 as the "trial" and then if I like it, go back for mine.

    I don't know if they will do your make up for free more than one (I don't know if they do it for free at all), but I only use MAC products.  My make up bag has well over $1000 worth of make up - all MAC.  There products age execellent so I would recommend using them (and the make up artist if you think neccessary) for both weddings.
    I am not trying to be offensive, but if they do a good job isn't paying for your make up to be done on your wedding day worth it?  I had my make up done by someone that does make up and I am so glad I did.  The make up lasted all day and looks flawless in my pictures.

    They did a trial for free, but to have a make-up artist for my wedding was about $100, although that might have included other people.  Honestly, the girl did a terrible job.  DH said I looked like I came out of Jersey Shore.  It is also very aggravating at that counter--constant interruptions and teenagers sticking their fingers into everything.  I did not end up using them.

    I would pay for a makeup artist to professionally do your makeup.  I agree with the post above. It is your wedding day - after all the planning and the stress you want to feel and look amazing. With everything else that you had to pay for - paying $100 for something to do your makeup is a small fee for how amazing you're going to feel and how well you will like yourself in your wedding pictures - which are not cheap!

    The day of the wedding I would not want to be at Nordstrom getting my makeup done. I can give you the name and number of the girl that did my makeup she worked at MAC and has all MAC makeup. Did an amazing job. 

    Good Luck!

    Also check out Sephora products, they're still pricey but less expensive and for the same quality as MAC.

    Sephora sells a brand called Make Up Forever that is actually made by MAC.  Their foundation and finishing powder are amazing.  I also use a lot of Urban Decay products and they're amazing, too.
