From what I've heard, I'm pretty sure it's free. But you might have to buy something, I'm not sure.

I know MAC's policy used to be that you had to buy $50 in products to get a makeover from them, but I'm not sure if that's still the deal now. Clinique and Estee Lauder do it for free I think.

I've had my makeup done by MAC in the past and it was free. But that was perhaps 2 years ago so I don't know if it's changed. I did tip the girl who did it. She was my regular SA there.

It's free, but I think you're obligated to buy 2 products. I think it was Bendel's that used to have a house make-up artist which was the coolest, because she used products from a variety of lines so you got the best of everything, not just one line's products. Maybe other stores offer the same kind of thing.

i went with a friend for her wedding makeup trial at a MAC counter. they didn't charge, but she did buy all the makeup they used.

that's pretty standard, at least where i live. free makeover, buy the products you like.

Call ahead and reserve a time and ask. I'd ask is their any fees associated w/ a make-over?
I'm sure you'll want to buy so it probably won't be a big deal . .
I went to Bobbi Brown about a month before my wedding for some tips and got a makeover and ended up buying everything she used except maybe 2 products which I already had.
I wasn't charged for the makeover but maybe because I bought everything!?
I HIGHLY recommend both lines, but I prefer BB over MAC slightly.

MAC did mine free and no pressure to buy

It's supposed to be free at Bobbi Brown, but some counters ask a minimum purchase of 2 or 3 products. I agree to call ahead and book an appointment.

mac did mine for free, they never indicated that i would be expected to buy a minimum. i did by over $100 of product, though.

Another question, which brand is the best to go to, when I want makeup like Jennifer Lopez that bronze skin and the bronze eyes and nude lips. I think mac can still do it well? What she does for the award shows because my skin is similar and my complexion

both lines can achieve the results you want. I use a nude from both and both are FAB!
Bobbi Brown has a rep for achieving that look, she has a very natural approach to make up.
MAC is more pigmented so a little goes a long way, sometimes their high pigmented colors freak people out a bit I think.
