So I got an email today from a Mary Kay consultant that got my email from Davids Bridal. ( I didn't get my dress there, but I might get my BM dresses there, so I registered...) She's a local consultant and she offered me a free facial and glamour makeover! woo hoo!! AND I can bring friends and I get $25 in free product and each of my friends get $5 in free product lol which I'm sure is like a sample of lipstick ha ha... anyway, I am excited! Maybe she can give me ideas for how I want my make up to look on the big day!! I kind of feel like a traitor because I kind of unofficially work for Lancome... but until it's "official" I don't have anything to feel bad about! lol

    Awesome! I got that too after a bridal expo. My consultant offered to do my makeup for the wedding for $35 including travel. If I didn't want to get airbrushed, I would have asked her to do it =)

    Independent Mary Kay consultants aren't allowed to put the make up on you cause most of us don't have cosmetology licenses, So when i help Brides i use myself to demo the technique and help guide them to learn it. But none the less, go and have fun!!! Mary Kay was the only product line i would use even before i became a consultant! plus the company supports all kinds of charities and promotes the general idea that all woman are beautiful no matter what!!! plus they have AWESOME bridal sets you can order Smiley laugh

    I think it's kind of a scam...DB works with Mary Kay and they always send that email out.

    Well im sure it's just to try to get me to buy stuff.... i dunno how they could scam me... they don't have any of my credit card info or anything... she told me she works with davids bridal... I have been to something like this before.... just not a bridal version... I'm sure it's just a way to get more customers...

    and DB isn't who emailed me... it was the actual consultant who got my email from DB lol

    @Kiesha- I thought you just couldn't charge to put make up on people if you didn't have a cosmetology license.... I didn't know u couldn't do it at all!!

    Nope! none at all!! we could get in biiiiig trouble for putting it on you while representing the MK company. Now say if i was sitting down and doing your make up as a friend, i do believe that it was allowed...but i'd have to double check

    Its a scam I got the same email. I checked with DB before i contacted the Mary Kay consultant and they said they're not affiliated with them.

    Oh... I called them and they said they were lol.... with this particular consultant, she works with the DB in my town... I mean... I don't know how she can scam me without any info except my email address... I am sure the whole purpose is to try to get me to buy a bunch of stuff.... which i might lol...

    and Keisha- is that a mary kay rule or like a law?? lol because I work at a department store and all the girls that work in cosmetics put make up on people all the time for free... and I know none of them are make up artists... I wonder if they are supposed to be doing that

    I'm not sure if its a law, but its a mary kay law thats for sure. i dont know what the deal is behind it, but when my sales director gave me my "training" she made that point very clear, i cant put the cosmetics on for the customers, but i can put it on myself and have them copy. i can do some digging and find out for sure for you! cause i'm curious now as well...

    I was offered to have my make up done for free too by a MK consultant thru my wedding planner. I meet with her and she does a trial and if I like her she'll do my make up free. If I don't use her for the wedding then I pay for the trial.

    I'm considering it but I also want to look into this one that does airbrushing makeup. If that's too expensive then I'll do the MK.

    Sounds like you are getting a great deal. Have fun with it!!

    Not to burst your bubble- but any MK consultant will do the facial/makeover thing for you. It's basically you doing it with their products, since (like was said) they can't legally apply it to your skin.

    I personally wouldn't do it. I've had them done, and it's really just a sales pitch- like hardcore sales pitch. I actually felt guilty for not buying- and I didn't even like the products!

    And they don't have alot of professional training. All their training is on their products- not skin types, or techniques, etc.

    I went to one of those a couple of weeks ago. Not worth the 3 hours of my time. Facial and pampering to me means someone else doing it, not me doing it myself.

    I got a phone call for that. The lady is from out of town but she said she is from my area and is going to call me back for an appointment next month because I wasn't able to sign up for any of her slots this time she is in town because of work.
