    i was going to do my own makeup but everyone talked me out of it. I now have a makeup artist but she’s out of of NYC. I think if someone does their own makeup the “cost” may differ. I have tons of makeup since that’s what I’m into so it wouldn’t have cost me anything.

    I hired a makeup artist. I provided my own foundation though (because I can only wear a certain brand), and they provided everything else. With my group of me and 8 women, we paid $15 dollars a face, including false eyelash strips (I opted out of them because I had individuals put in). The 2 best ways IMO to find a artist would be to

    1. Check craigslist
    2. Go to your local beauty supplies and check the boar where stylists leave their cards

    I found my MUA on craigslist, but I was able to get in contact with several artists using the beauty supply cards. Always insist on seeing a portfolio and having a trial too! Good luck!

    @rds2013:  I’ve been trying to figure this one out.  i really don’t have a big budget so i was thinking that i’d do it myself. but i want my eyes to look tony the tiger great and i know i can’t do that… yet.  maybe youtube tutorials can get me up to speed.  iount know.

    I’m using a MU artist for my DW in Maui. I think it’s going to be about $130 including false eyelashes and airbrushing.

    @ThisDeluxeLife:  Is there anyone in your wedding party that can do makeup? I think that by June, with the help of YouTube, you can do your makeup!

    Everything in Maui is expensive- I actually am getting a great price as my MU and hairstylist will come to my condo to get me ready- $250 total for both of them including travel. More than I wanted to spend:(
