makeup

I am looking for someone to do makeup. Price is a major factor, but of course I want them to be talented. Does anybody have someone good? Thanx

    I loved my girl and she was very reasonably priced. She does both hair and makeup, and on the wedding day brought a secondary makeup artist who was also amazing.

    Her name is Gina and here is her Facebook group.

    A lot of the make up artists at places like MAC and Clinique do freelance work.  You could find someone that way.  That's what my sister did for her wedding.  She had gone to the same girl at the MAC counter several times and knew she liked her, so she hired her to come in for the wedding.

    I had a MAC artist come and do my makeup (pics on married bio) along with the bridal party.  If you want her email, let me know.  She did an incredible job.  

    I have another MAC contact who did my trial, but ended up getting seriously injured the day before the wedding (hence leading me to my amazing MUA), who also did a really good job.  It was a more subdued version of my wedding makeup, if you are looking for something a bit softer.  

    I'm glad I ended up with the replacement girl, believe it or not, all the BM's were blown away with what a great job she did!

    slightly off topic, but what's a "reasonable price" for hair and makeup per person?

    My hair girl charged me $65 for the bride and $55 for everyone else. IMO that was a great price. Dunno about makeup; I did my own. But I would expect it to be similar. I think $60-$80 is very good, $80-$120 is decent, $120+ is more than I'd be willing to pay.

    That included lashes and 60% off any MAC products we wanted to stock up on (since they get that discount for working at the store - she just brought a ton of products that we asked from her in advance - it was great!).

    Thanks you!  My hair was done by Jeremy at Salon Liberte (Yonge & Dundas) - we went to the salon, but I know he's gone to people's houses as well.  Chako also works there and does an incredible job.

    My makeup was done by Zenah, a MAC artist.  I only have her email.  I will send it to you via private message (there is a sidebar to the right you can click on to check your messages).

    OK well I tried to send you a PM but it said "user not found".  I don't think she'd mind me sharing her info - I emailed her to ask first and she loves referrals.  Her email is zenah01 at yahoo dot com.
