    Sonia Roselli is amazing, and if she is still available for your day I would highly recommend going with her.  Unfortunately, for my wedding date Sonia was already booked solid so I decided to go to a trial with one of her associates, Manase, and I absolutely LOVED how he made me look and booked him ASAP for our wedding date.  

    Like I said, originally I was bummed that I wouldn't be able to use Sonia for my big day, since she is so highly recommended, BUT it actually is working out better because the prices for Manase are SIGNIFICANTLY less expensive than with Sonia herself.  That is a big plus for us, seeing as I'm paying for my makeup, as well as my 10 bridesmaids.  

    He has had tons of celebrity clients in the past, and recently moved back to Chicago from NYC.  In fact, last week my mom saw him doing makeup on the Celebrity Apprentice (her favorite show), and she thought that was just the coolest thing ever.

    I used Starlight make-up.  I just had my trial done this weekend and I had a great time.  From being professional to perfectionist I would not recommend any other company then Starlight. 

    Lillian is the make-up person and she is great.  She did my make-up simple and elegant.  Trust me I was not expecting to see the person I saw in the mirror after she was done with me.  Even my mom was amazed of how quickly and how beautiful the make-up and hair came out. My mom at first was going to get her hair/make-up done somewhere else but when she saw how great Lillian and Christina did my hair/make-up she didn't want to go any were else. 

    Check them out and see if you like them. http://www.starlightchicago.com/

    Andie Cumber is awesome. My wedding photographer recommended her for an event I had this winter and she did such a lovely job. Coming from LA, I've had a lot of airbrush and Andi was the best I've ever had. Best of all the price was soo reasonable.
