So, I’m going around the local hairdressing shops looking for someone to do my hair and make-up for my wedding (I don’t have a regular hairdresser). I go to this one shop, and the lady I’m talking to seems quite nice and professional, and then she introduces me to the cosmetician (make-up person, whatever they’re called). This lady also seemed very nice, but she was wearing rings of bright blue eyeliner, heavy, caked bright blue mascara, and bright pink lipstick. I worked very hard at not letting on how appalled I was at her personal make-up choices.
Now, my question is, is this somewhat normal? Has anyone experienced this before (a make-up professional who actually is good, but terrible at her own make-up)? Should I go ahead with consultations with this woman, or would it be a terrible waste of time? Should I talk to this woman’s manager and tell her how off-putting a professional make-up person who looks like a clown is? This has just about floored me - how can anyone who does make-up for a living not know that coloured eyeliner and mascara is way, way, way out? (It is, isn’t it? Or is it so out it’s in again?) I’m so confused! Help!!!
