Wedding Guest - makeup

I will be staying at the Metro on Pitt, in Sydney CBD. I am hoping to have my makeup done on a Saturday morning in March, before going to a Wedding. Any advice of where to go that is within walking distance please?

Closest to Metro on Pitt would probably be Evoke at World Square. But you cannot walk-in, it's appointments only. They also have a salon at Market St, but I've never seen that one

I have had dealings with Jay Jay here - it was ok, appointment keeping a bit haphazard, but she's good at what she does.

David Jones cosmetic department has a good choice of make-up services at reasonable prices, often complimentary with purchase.

Skip Sephora it is just chaos on a Saturday when all the school kids come to spend their pocket money. Any of the counters at DJs or Myer can help. Both also have salons for hair and DJs has the nail and brow bar too.

For the hair the "Tribe" salon at David Jones' has online discounts for last minute, i.e. book a day or two before. There are always spaces. It is an aveda salon.

That said they are still not cheap and do get them to confirm the price first.
