Do you think I could get a makeover in Glasgow on Sunday?
I have never had one but would like to have some help creating a natural everyday look. I am rubbish at make-up so need help. Could I go somewhere in a dept store or something this Sunday or would I need to book in a salon or something?
There's a Bobbi Brown counter at Frasers: that's a good brand for a natural every day look. You could give Frasers a all and ask them to put you through to Bobbi Borwn (or Lancome or Clarins or Clinique or Elizabeth Arden or Estee Lauder......) and ask if they'd be able to do a makeover on Sunday.
I'd normally recommend only buying from one of the "brands" if they've got an offer on - but the porblem for you on this occasion is that if they've got an offer on, they'll be inundated with people and will only be taking bookings for makeovers at some future date. No use for you.
Just to update. Had my appointment on Sunday I and I thought it was really good. The makeup artist was totally cool with the fact that I was completly clueless and bit nervous about it all - especially when I had to apply one half of my face. I looked great when she was finished.
Only problem was to make me look that way took 15 different products!! No way I could afford them all so I bought foundation, concealer, lipgloss and mascarra. Maybe be able to buy more over time.
