Make-up Dilemma

So I went to Sephora today in Boston to do a makeup consultation for the big day which is in 41 days. I know! It's so soon!

The consultation went amazing! I loved what she did and if I had thought to take pictures, well I would have but no one went with me and I felt like a jerk taking pictures of myself in Sephora.

Unfortunately, I added up the cost of everything and $280. Not including the moisturizers she suggested I use and gave me samples of. Granted it all looks great but I don't really want to spend $100+ on foundation (HD Foundation/powder/brush) supplies that I'll likely never have a use for ever again. With fiance and I both being out of work I just don't have the cash for that.

I'm guessing I can probably find someone to do my makeup for less than that. So I'm on a mission, I have yet to find ANYONE to do my hair or makeup for my big day - a slight slacker. I know. I know.

Do any of you lovely DC area brides have any suggestions for people - salon or on site - who do hair/makeup and aren't over the top expensive? I'm trying to keep everything under $250 for myself and to between $45-75 per bridesmaids. I'm letting them choose how they do their hair so if they feel comfortable doing it themselves and don't want to spend the $$ then I'm okay with that.

I highly recommend Faces By SAM! Suzanne is amazing, I met her at a bridal show when we had booths across from each other and I booked her to do my own makeup right away after seeing her work! She has also done makeup for one of my brides this summer and she looked stunning. Her site is http://www.suzanneminskey.com/

Mara Fontanez is my regular hairstylist and she also does an awesome job with wedding make-up and hair! She is easy to work with and not too expensive: http://www.theknot.com/kl_vendordetail.html?id=241480&&vendorsearch=Y&market=017&category=BTY&keyword=DC%20AREA
