I wanted professional makeup on my wedding day, but is $150 too much for one person? I am paying for a lot of the wedding myself, and have heard this girl is phenominal, so since it is my wedding day, should I pay that much anyway??? Hair is by another person and will be another price which my SIL is covering!
How much did you pay for your makeup?

I think mine’s $65 for a pretty generic look. Make sure you get a free/reduced rate make up trial to make sure she’s as good as she says she is!

Is this JUST for makeup? My hair AND makeup is going to cost $150. If it’s JUST for makeup, she better be amazeballs.

Wow. I paid for myself, four bms, and my mother and it cost me $40 total.

I think it varies by region. To put it into perspective, if you go into a department store and get your makeup done by a MAC artist, it’ll cost you $65 worth of products. Here you are paying 2x that, but she’s coming to you (I assume).
FWIW, I paid a little over $300 (including tip) for both hair and makeup. This is about average in my area. This is excluding the trial.

Wowzaa! I think thats very expensive! My dad’s bride (now my stepmother) went to my personal hairdresser on the day of her wedding. She was able to get a gorgeous half-up-do, amazingly fresh and young looking make up, and a fresh coat of nailpolish, all for 90$!
Maybe this artist of yours is an amazing one! But for that price she should at least provide a free trial. Make sure you do a trial! It also doesnt hurt to shop around some more, just to have a second or third option 🙂

Thats exactly what I paid and I had airbrush! Sounds pretty typical of average cost of makeup really.

My hair and makeup (airbrush and false lashes) came out to a little under $300-in a vegas hotel. I think it really depends on area. But I’m assuming your getting a bit more than the average make up

I am paying $150 for airbrush makeup and false lashes. Others may think it’s a bit much, but this woman is supposed to be the best in our area and for the amount I’m paying for professional photos, I better look freaking perfect 😉 plus I am getting a great deal on my hair through a friend so I splurged a little on the makeup side.

Tricky question. My makeup is $45. and Hair is $65. I am having my hair and makeup done by a salon that specializes in wedding hair and makeup. They travel all over the US doing bridal shows.
ANYWAYS—-There are a few things I will not bargain on with the wedding.. Photography, Hair & makeup. Those 3 things is what will make you look your absolute BEST. It sounds like 150 is a big pricy for makeup only—but if she is as good as people say they it would be a good investment.

If she really is amazing- i’d definitely pay that.

I think it really depends on where you are. I’m paying $185 for airbrush make up and that includes my pre-wedding consultation and eyelashes. That price also includes travel, since she is going to be coming to me to do my makeup. Honestly, if she’s the best, I would do it. You’re going to have these pictures forever and you want to look your best.

Wow! I think that’s crazy! I paid $35 for makeup and got my hair done for free – the salon I went to does free bride hair with at least 5 paying bridesmaids getting theirs done. But that’s ND for ya. 🙂
