@StartingMrsWoods: is completely correct. It varies wildly. We won’t be much help!

My friend who is a make-up artist does not charge at all for trials if you meet with her at your or her house but in salons, they charge the same as the day of. They dont really care where you go after – it’s the same amount of work for them.

My make-up trial was free.

I had a makeup trial where they charged the full amount – $100. I am having another with a different artist and it will be $50, BUT that will be deducted from day of cost if I book her.

I’d definitely call around and highly recommend a trial.

A makeup artist worth spending money on will charge for the trial or at least offer a package deal. It’s OK if it’s like a coupon or monthly “special” or promotional thing, but a makeup artist who does not charge for a trial is most likely very junior or is not good at running her business (none-professional) 

As a bride, you should be vigilant about choosing your vendors.  The last thing you want is an “artiste” not showing up on your very important day!
