Got Makeup Professionally Done-1rst Time

I've been looking at pictures lately and have been displeased with how my makeup has been photographing. Previously my mother would criticize me for the barely there makeup look. Lately I have been attempting to create a more mature makeup look because of my age and my joining into the workforce. I decided to get my makeup professionally done. I went to Macy's and walked around the different makeup stands to see the colors and the technician's makeup. I really like the colors on the Dior pallette. They looked professional and fresh. I requested that the technician do my makeup for a workday. I also asked her what I could do differently for a night out. She was not helpful. She didn't put anything on my eyebrow scar or lips until I asked. When I was done I looked just like I do when I do my own makeup. The total was $539.00 for all of the makeup. I have gotten the same exact results with CVS products for way cheaper. I was expecting a huge difference and did not see any.

    Did you actually buy the makeup or just have her total it up?
    Speaking as someone who worked for Macy's for years, I wouldn't call them makeup artists. They're salesgirls who usually like makeup. It doesn't mean they're not knowledgeable about their line, they can be, but their job is to sell. They've had a pretty quick training on makeup application, if that. Sorry that it wasnt as fun for you.
    I would HIGHLY recommend finding an independent makeup artist (you can usually find them advertising for brides on the knot, etc) and setting up an appointment. They can be expensive, around $100 for a lesson but she will teach you everything and it's catered to your needs. That might be what you want. Otherwise, there is a site called pixie woo online that does tons of makeup tutorials. I find everything there!
