Hi Phoenix! Thanks for all your generous answers here.

I've only had one makeover in my life. It was by a MAC artist and frankly I looked like a hooker when she was through with me. I'd like to have someone give me a makeover since I'm growing out my gray hair and my colors are changing. At 48 I want to make the most of what I have but look as natural as possible. Is there one cosmetic line that is better to go to for a makeover than the others? I want general tips and suggestions for an everyday look, not an evening look. However, I probably won't buy much of their product. Are there people who do makeovers for a fee instead of just selling their product? I live in Minneapolis if that matters.
