My trial was $100. That’s pretty standard for my area.

Mine was $75 for trial and $75 for regular. I got a discount on the second trial but that was just after it was done. Around here, trials are usually a bit less than the actual. I’m near NYC though, so I could see day of makeup easily being $100 or more, which I personally wouldn’t pay.

My trial was included in the price… 4 girls hair and makeup [1 hair stylist and 1 makeup artist] is $600 for me.

$150 for hair and makeup- I had engagement pics done after to make it more worthwhile. Wedding day was $250 for me and $130 for bridesmaids for hair and makeup.

I think that seems reasonable…especially considering she’s doing your day of for free.

My makeup is $60 total and the trial was included. However one of my bridesmaids wanted a trial (she never wears makeup and wanted to know how it would look first) and the MUA was going to charge her $50 for that and $50 for the day of.

Free. But it’s a family connection. My MUA is a head artist for Chanel (west coast). I have no idea what she would charge regular people if she would even freelance. $100 seems normal to me.

eecuadrado:  My trial is $125, $225 with hair. $100 seems about right.

MY hairstylist also does makeup so will be doing both.  She is charging $50 for makeup and $85 for hair, regardless if it is a bridesmaid or me.  She will charge the same for the trials, which is a pretty nice price in the SF Bay Area of California I think!
