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.

But if you need a makeover for a special event, then they'd charge. They will all try to sell you product, even if you pay them.

Your best bet might be to go to Sephora and ask a consultant there to give you a makeover. There, they aren't beholden to any one line. They're knowledgeble and pretty good about "hearing" their customers. They also tend to be less pushy IMO than many of the single-brand sales people.
