Valet – Hello i just wanted to say a little something. the mall is beautiful i agree, very expensive though. however im just posting something here to let all shoppers that use valet parking. please be very careful expecially if you use your credit card to pay, there is this guy there i personally know that double swipes your cards and puts one in the drawer and one in his pocket...he had just told me this recently and my son also said that is what he does....i think every1 needs to know this even his boss.
Go to the actual MAC store in the Galleria, not this place – I just moved to the greater Houston area from The Woodlands. I used an awesome girl, Angela, at the MAC in the woodlands but since I am getting married downtown and just moved I figured I would try out the MAC @ Saks 5th Avenue since they offer free make-overs Mon-Wed. Well, I made an appointment and when I got there I was told by the make up artist that she wouldnt be working there for long and suggested I wait for the girl who was coming in on the next shift .. that way I could keep the same artist for my wedding etc. When the girl got to work the first thing she told me was "well, i hope you know theres no guarantee i can do your make when you come back". The girl asked me if had any pictures.. and told me that they couldnt do a good job without a picture (not true if you are a good make up artist). My experience was aweful, I left there looking like i had just put my own make up on a little heavier. Definitely go to the actual MAC store in the Galleria vs using Saks' MAC counter. The Woodlands has some awesome artists too. because of my bad experience I'm actually staying at a hotel in the woodlands the night before my wedding just so i can use the make up artist who I really like.
I understand your frustration - but why not hire a real make up artist for the day of your wedding? Most artists work freelance and you can book them to come on site.
Rather than spend the money staying in a hotel that is inconvenient for you, hire someone that will come on site, you could probably even hire a girl from the MAC counter.
