So I am getting married in 6 weeks and wanting to get my make up done for my wedding. I do not want to pay a fortune, but I am not very experienced with make up, other than the everyday basics. Does anyone have any suggests of affordable make up artists in the Knoxville area?

Congratulations on your wedding!!
One thing I assumed is that you don't wear make-up on a regular basis and "go bare"? Quite honestly, you might want to get a good foundation, some mascara and some lip-gloss and leave it at that. Rite Aid has a guarantee that if you buy make-up there and you don't like it, you can trade it for another shade. I'm not sure if other drug stores do that or not.
I've heard friends say that they have luck going to the cosmetic counter at the stores in the mall. Personally, I've never been able to get someone to help me out. But if you get someone, it's free, and they are supposed to be really good.
If you know someone who sells Mary Kay, you might be able to get them to help you out. Unless it's a good friend who is at your wedding, I would pay them for their trouble.
Cosmetic schools offer this service, but they don't train much, and I might use it as a last resort.
Check with your hair stylist. Are you having your hair done before the wedding? Ask if they can do your make-up, too.
Ask a bridesmaid to give you a lesson or help you out. There are a lot of websites that might be able to help you out, and you have plenty of time to practice. I did a quick search on Google and found this site: http://www.expertvillage.com/video-series/73_makeup-tips.htm which looks promising!

And last, but not least... Salon Visage offers an application for $30.

Good luck! I"m sure everything will be great!

Hi J.,
I have a friend that is a Mary Kay Consultant. She does facials but I'm not sure what all it is. Her name is Kelly Brickey and she lives in Powell her # is ###-###-####. Hope this helps you out!! K.

Hi J., try calling around to the salons and find out what their prices are for doing make-up that morning. I think that you will find that it isn't very expensive. Or you can check out craigslist and see if there is anyone that offers that service, but then you would have to supply the make-up most likely.

Good luck,

I would love to do your make-up for you.

Not only did I grow up with a mother who taught Color-Me-Beautiful classes, I also have 1800 hours in Beauty School; make-up is my forte'. I love it!

I don't know what you have in your collection, but we can discuss different ideas before your wedding, so that if you hate my ideas, you can always do something else.

J., I don't know what time your wedding is but if you are on a tight budget this is my hint. Go to any dept store Dillards or Beck and go to their cosmetic counter and have one of the girls who work there do your makeup. It is free I recomend Clinique because I had a friend who worked at a dept. store in Il.and she had special training through Clinique. Whenever I was going to a special event I would always go to Cindy that day and she would do my makeup. I live in Oak Ridge now and I go to a salon to get my eyebrows waxed and this lady does makeup and she is great. Her salon is called Ambience Skin Care Studio. You might want to call her and talk to her. Her name is Sandy She has dyed my eyelashes and I don't have to use mascara now. She is very good and I trust her. Best wishes for your wedding. S.
