What does the full face makeover in store consist of? My prom is tomorrow and I set up an appointment for tomorrow. This is my first experience with make up actually haha. And is it better to do make up then hair, vice versa, or it doesn't matter? Thanks!
On your second question, I would do hair first and then makeup, especially if you're going to be washing your hair and spraying hairspray, etc. If you're not washing and your schedule doesn't work that way, it's less of an issue, but you don't want to get your face wet after you've had your makeup done.
As far as the makeover goes, it costs $50, which I assume you know. That you get in store purchases -- most stores it's a gift card you can spend then or later, but check to make sure they don't expect you to buy exactly what they use on you.
For the makeover itself, go with a cleaned and moisturized face. (If you don't have a good routine to do this, do your best, they will add moisturizer as needed, etc. But talk to someone while you're in the store about setting up a good routine. It's good to start at your age if not earlier and is great for your looks.)
Anyway, they will do your whole face for you. They will start with foundation/concealer/tinted moisturizer/something as a base, depending on your needs and tastes. Make sure they know you don't usually wear makeup. You'll almost certainly be more comfortable in something lightweight and natural feeling and probably don't need a lot. Then they'll do your eyes, color for face, lips, etc. Since you don't usually wear makeup, you probably want something neutral that enhances your features. (I think that's good at any time, great for pictures, and great for someone young.)
If they do something and you don't like it, tell them. If you don't want something, tell them. (For example, my husband hates the heavy black eyeliner look, so even if I'm telling them to just try something, I always tell them not that!) If you have any allergies or sensitivities, let them know that, too.
Also, if you think that you want to start wearing makeup vs this being a one time thing, let them know. They can't do everything in 45 minutes and you're going to be nervous and excited due to the prom, but they can at least use things that would be easier for someone new to makeup to use themselves and use things that don't cost your whole $50 just for eyeshadow. I've had them choose Sephora brand products for me and loved them and used them a lot when I decided to buy them. So let them know what your budget might be and what you might most want to purchase so that they show you things you might want to start with.
Most of all, have fun. Try not to be so excited that you can't sit still, lol! Get them to write down everything that they used, so if you like it you remember what they used and you can go back and get it later if you don't get it then.
One thing that you might want to buy is whatever they do for lip color. Everything else really should stay in place, but unless they're using a long wearing lip color, that is going to need to be touched up.
Most of all, have a great time at your prom!
i also agree with this, my lady put thick dior glitter lipgloss on me and i hated it, so i asked her for something else and she fixed it right away. don't be embarrased to correct them!
Thank you so much!!!! Your post was really helpful. So for full face, that includes eyebrows as well?
I am doubtful of make up lasting a long time, since I have no knowledge of it haha, my limo is coming at 6 so I have to be ready by then. Is it safe to set my make up appointment at 12:30? My hair appointment is 2pm and there's 6 of my friends with me so I assume hair will take a while. I just want to make sure my make up won't go away. I won't be washing my hair!
I'm going to the Sephora in Union Square, I hope I can just buy a gift card!
Thank you so much again! Now I won't walk in completely confused haha
