Have you considered Sissi Chan?  She did a great job on my hair and makeup during the trial, and I hired her for just hair for my wedding since I had a large wedding party and it would have taken too long for one person to do everyone’s hair and makeup.  I don’t have my professional pictures back yet, but here is a link to the shots by the guests: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2028977&id=1094618484&l=6f5293b644

I’ve attached some additional pictures from the wedding and trials (the one where I’m wearing the blue dress you can see the makeup she did; the lipstick wore off because I had been eating, but it looked really pretty)

 

She’s very nice and friendly and does great work!

unfortunately i think that’s the going rate in ny. have you tried craigslist? there might be vendors on there that are not as well known for cheaper.

look on model mayhem for someone in the city with a good port, but want to weddings. You will most likely only pay $75 for a make-up kit fee plus tip and final pictures. Modelmayhem.com

Hi!  Aww, sorry to hear you are sad! Frown I was just going through some makeup stress last week:  (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/help-hairmake-up-artists-in-nyc-with-experience-in-asian-faces).   A lot of the makeup artists I’ve researched are around the price range you suggest.  However, several that are quite popular on this site (Sachiko Yanase, Reiko Utsugi, Ai Sakai, Sissi Chan) are very reasonable – for ~$600, they could do hair AND makeup for you and two in your bridal party. 

I was stressed because they were mostly booked up (fortunately for me, I was able to book Sissi!), but it might not hurt to shoot them an email.

Do you have any friends that are particularly good at hair or make up? Bridesmaids? Perks on that is that you can do a bunch of trials til you get it right? I’m considering doing this, also. Good luck!
