Hmm, I personally am not a fan of getting make up lessons at a department store. I've had it done twice before - once at Lancome, and once at Bobby Brown - and I really didn't like what they did. I'm pretty sure the guy at Lancome didn't quiet understand that the clown look really wasn't my bag, and then the Bobby Brown lady was much better. She taught me things that I hadn't tried before which was good, but the way she put on my make up wasn't really very good. I didn't like the way it looked and it didn't look natural at all. Really caked on. But, was much better experience than the other.
So I'd be up for make up lessons if I knew it was a decent place! I've found make up trials and on the wedding day to be so expensive, I'm also pondering doing my own!
