On Graduation Day most girls want their hair and makeup to be perfect. Not just to feel good, but for their pictures as well. When it comes to applying makeup some girls just have no talent or patience, what do u do?

How about getting your makeup done for free? Yes, this is possible if you do your research right, and go to the right place. You don’t have to be a celebrity to get your makeup done for nothing.

Where should you go? 2-3 weeks before your graduation day head over to a local mall. Most of the major department stores carry a cosmetic booth. Visit Lancome, Estee Lauder, or Clinique.

One of my favorites places to go is MAC. I have only been here once, but the makeup lasted all night and I only had to tip the guy. That’s right, I had a guy do my makeup and it was so nice. All places vary, depending on your location. The application might be free however, they might ask you to buy $30-50 worth of products. Think about, if you end up liking the results the money is so well worth it.

Being a professional beautician I get asked all the time, “ Is it better to get your makeup done at a mall or salon?” To be honest with you I have to say mall. Here are the reasons.

At a salon they only use a certain line of makeup, and it may not be suitable for all skin tones.

At a salon they can charge anywhere from $30-$70 dollars just for one application.

At a salon the makeup artists are not high quality like the ones who work at MAC.

In a mall you can get it done for free, and the makeup will last all night.

In a mall they use certain products for certain skin tones. They also carry hypoallergenic if needed.

In a mall if you go on a week day or weekend and you don’t have to make an appointment. Sometimes you only have to wait 10 minutes.

In a mall they know about the latest products and makeup trends.

If you are interested in getting a free makeup makeover for graduation, go to Google and put "Mac cosmetics store locator. They enter you zip code.

Make sure to tip the makeup artist. This way if you ever need to get it done again they will take good care of you.
