Recommendations for a makeup artist

Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good makeup artist.  Maybe someone who does airbrush as well.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

    I've heard a lot of people rave about Cover Girl Brides and Beauty by design, both of whom do airbrush.  I have not done trials yet, though.

    I used Karen at Cover Girl Brides, she did my hair and my air-brush make-up. For both myself and my MOH. And she came to us.

    She's great to work with, and loves her work. But she is not cheap, just so you know. I dont know what kind of budget you are working with. Good Luck.

    ETA: It was hot on my wedding day, and my air-brush make-up lasted from 10AM till I took it off at 11PM. So regardless of who you choose, I prefer the air-brush.

    I am using Paloosh Salon. They do airbrush and regular make up and their prices weren't as high as Cover Girl Brides.

    I am using Elina Mille of bellelina.com.  She did not require me to have a minimum number of girls on the wedding day for makeup like some of the other popular on-site makeup artists.  I think her prices are reasonable too.

    How far in advance are you ladies booking your make up/hair style artists and doing test runs. My wedding is October 1, 2011. Do I need to start doing this now?

    I searched Karen out in October for my May wedding. She books up fast, and as we got closer, we shored up the details. And I didnt have my trial till the Tuesday before the wedding. I live out of state.

    I booked for our April wedding back in June of last year.  April-May and October are the busiest months for weddings in Charleston, so you should book asap.  I am doing my trial about 3 weeks before the wedding and I booked that about a month ago.
