Arghhh!!! I’m starting to get nervous about finding a makeup artist for my wedding in Oct. I know the bay area is expensive, but yowza!! $200+ for makeup for me, and around $100 for Bridesmaid or Best Man is about the cheapest I’ve found after emailing a million places I found on yelp.
Do any of you have suggestions/recommendations/referrals? I don’t mind paying more for my makeup (ideally not $200, but I can do $100 or $150 for me), but I really can’t fathom asking my Bridesmaid or Best Man to pay $100 for makeup. I can’t afford $100 x 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man so I’m telling them it’s their choice, I would just like to find something reasonable where they might actually consider it ($50?). Or, has anyone had luck with partial makeup for BM? I have a friend who found someone who did partials – they could choose foundation, lips, eyes (no lashes), lashes for a reduced rate.
Any and all suggestions welcome!
