Make up Artist

As you all might know, I've been looking for a make-up artist and I thought I found her but I think, not. We've had bad communication problems...everytime she would tell me she'd call me back or email me "by the end of the day" it would not happen. I understand she is busy but she could at least tell me she'd call me back another time. Besides she left me on a hang on saturday for trial. Too bad because I liked her make up work. =\So, I have recruited to Valerie St. George ( I also forgot who mentioned her) she is located in Burbank and will travel. Anyway she quoted me for hair and make up for $200 not too bad right? but it does not include trial, trial is $100 for hair and make up. Is that good?Also if you've heard of her work, I'd like to know. TIA

    Sorry to hear things didn't work out with that make up artist. But I'm sure whoever you go with will be great :) Valerie was at a bridal show I went to at the Castaway and she looked like she did good work, but I didn't talk to her because I wasn't looking for hair/make up at that time. That's what I'm paying for my hair and make up. $100 for each hair and make up then $100 for trial, so $300 total. I think it's a fairly good price. Not the cheapest, but a little less than the max I wanted to spend. I think somewhere between $250 to $350 is about normal.

    You're very welcome! I originally wanted to do airbrushing because I have this idea in my head that it makes you flawless, but I didn't want to spend the extra money haha. And woohoo for food tasting! What are you guys going to try? We did prime rib and chicken oscar (which I didn't care for). The only thing I didn't like was that we didn't get the option to try all the starches, just the two they gave us. But we've eaten there before and I imagine they are the same garlic mashed potatoes.

    Vans, did you ask Christina about her assistant that does make up? I have NOT seen her work and maybe you have. Maybe its another avenue you can take. I'm really considering her because I like the fact she will touch you up all day ( I have an extremely oily face). Of course I want to see her work first. Sorry to hear about the previous make up artist, it really sucks when they aren't responsive!

    SMHurbbard- We are trying the New York Steak and the Sirloin I think...fi loves steak and so does my family. We'll see how it goes. Too bad they don't serve the mash potatoes, fi would have liked it. Yeah, we have also had dinner there, so we know it'll be good.xxquemirasxx- I also liked that Christina's assistant will be there for the whole day to touch up (extra $$ though) but I'm a pit picky on make up, I have some pictures of her work...would you like me to send them to you? I just need to look for them.

    Yeah that would be great if you could share :) You have my email right? I was planning on asking Christina about it. I know its extra $, now when I asked Christina she said it was $150, but this girl way something else so who knows. I'm also thinking of asking Leah Garcia. I have someone to do my hair, its the makeup which I'm concerned about.

    did you not think much of her work?

    That really sucks - better to find out now instead of on your wedding day.  Okay - I think you said you work in City of Industry and FI is in Brea - I'm going to work with Rubi - she will travel to you too.  She is out of Brea - she had GREAT reviews on Project Wedding too.  Here is her website.  http://www.makeupbyrubi.com/index.html HTH
