@Koko1977:  I just literally booked this so I can actually share! My trial is $75 (and I intend to use it on the day of my engagement photos) and my wedding make-up is $90 (that includes travel, airbrushing, and eyelash extensions). I was willing to spend A LOT on make-up but I actually didn’t have to. I found a wonderfully talented artist at a very reasonable price.

I am in the process of booking hair, but I think the cost will be similar.

@Koko1977:  I paid $100 for my trial with a different artist, but for the day of I paid $175 for my hair and makeup. Besides my photographer, my best splurge by far!

I usually charge $40 for the the trail and $150/bridal makeup (includes eyelashes & lipgloss) and will be paying about the same for my wedding 🙂

Wow. I thought $50 was expensive. Everyone I’ve contracted was in the $30-60 range including the trial. My hair is about the same.

@Koko1977:  I can’t find anyone in my area 🙁 other than the Mary Kay ladies (which is not my style) 

I would be willing to pay about $100 for airbrush and fake eyelashes. That is the going rate in some of the surrounding areas.

I will probably end up DIYing my makeup.

I decided to DIY my makeup, but the girl doing my hair also does makeup and its $90 if I remember right – airbrush and lashes included.

@Koko1977:  $0.  I’m doing it myself.  Wish me luck!
