13 Makeup Stores That Offer FREE Makeovers

Going out and need a fancy new look? I’ve got the perfect solution.

If you’re looking for something special or a little different from your usual routine, getting your makeup done at a department store can be a fun experience. While you might have to pay at some of these places, others will be totally willing to give you a full face for free. Here are 13 places to get your makeup done, whether it’s for prom, a special occasion, or just for fun.

Disclaimer: Most of the makeovers here are FREE, but I decided to include some paid ones in case anyone is looking for something a little more extravagant!

 

Can I just show up?

Many of these stores will graciously take walk-ins, although appointments are GREATLY appreciated. Without an appointment, you might have to wait around for them to finish working on someone else’s face. It also gives them time to plan out something that works for your schedule.

 

What about the people that work there?

Keep in mind that many of the people that work at these stores will NOT receive commissions if they are working on your makeup. As a courtesy, it would be kind to purchase some sort of product if they spent more than 30 minutes on your face. Of course, don’t be reckless and buy something that you won’t use. Buy something that you WILL use.

You can also give them a tip, but this is COMPLETELY optional.
