They do the make-up for "free" but you have to spend $45 on products. So yes, it was free, but I did spend money on products.

MAC doesn't charge for doing your makeup, just go to the counter or you can call and make an appointment

Shelley, I was actually told, when I called to make my appointment that you have to spend $45 on products. Maybe its different at different MAC's, so I say call ahead and ask.

Me and all my BM's went to the MAC store and had make-up applications done before we left for the wedding. They made us all look awesome and gave us a card with all the products we used and where to put them. This really helped the girls who do not usually wear make-up and they all looked awesome.

I also bought a kit from BeneFit called Realness of Concealness realness of concealness : Benefit Cosmetics I highly reccomend it. It really does help out a lot. The concealor worked wonders and I got many many compliments on my make-up. It also comes with instructions on what to put where.

The thing that saved my day the most was the MAC Fixer. You spray it on after you put on your make-up and it keeps it in place and gives you a nice dewy glow. Well, let me tell you that my make up stayed on all day and night (and I was sweating my butt off). In fact, this is gross, but I was too tired to take my make up off before going to sleep and when I woke up my make up looked like I just put it on. It was amazing.

So I highly highly recommed if you only have one splurge, you get the Fixer. Then the BeneFit kit. Totally made my wedding make-up easy to do and stay on forever.
Julie!! Is there SPF in the makuphuh.gif (You were probably asked this question already.... but my eyes hurt from reading too much eheheh ) Thanks!

Technically, the makeover is "free" but it's on the stipulation that you will be making a purchase afterwards. (It's $40 minimum purchase at the Belk where our MAC counter is).

 

I just emailed my sis earlier today to ask if she wants to come up for my first dress fitting anf then we'll go get makeovers. She doesn't have $$ for makeup but I figure I'll be spending at least $80 anyway, so we might as well both get makeovers. Plus, if we wear any of the same colors, I can help her with makeup on the wedding day.

 

I LOVE MAC!!!

This may be a dumb question, but where is MAC makeup sold? Do they have their own stores? I live in a small-ish city, and we just have the standard dept and drug stores... I will probably have to buy online I think.

This is such great advice!! I was so worried about what summer heat and humidity would do to my makeup.

 

And now Mac and BeneFit are added to my "must haves" list.

they have freestanding MAC counters, they sell it at Nordstrom and some Macy's. You can always go online to any of those websites as well

Well, I have never EVER bought Mac makeup, but after this review I have now bought the FIX. I started using it every morning already (would hate for it to react badly to my skin on my wedding day!) and I LOVE it! Thank you SO much for your advice.
