I made an appointment to get my makeup done for a big event based on a friend's recommendation. Upon entering, the atmosphere is beautiful and the product lines are enticing. The ladies at the front desk were very nice and attentive, but as soon as I met with the make up artist, everything changed. I had no specific direction, but I asked for high drama and tons of lashes. I was immediately told that she doesn't like when someone comes in and tells them how to do her job and give her direction. I clammed up immediately feeling the tension and intimidation. Once complete, the makeup was something I could've easily done myself. It was boring, no lashes, and honestly, made me look so monochromatic that in every picture I look like I am wearing no make up at all. For the reputation of the place and the cost, I was shocked by the experience. I have since told my friend who still likes the place and had another friend of ours go, and she had almost the same experience (w/o the rude comment) in which she felt the makeup was pedestrian and easily executed by herself. Very disappointing.
Pros: The atmosphere and the product lines are beautiful.
Cons: Poor attitude from the make up artist.
