The price seems reasonable to me. See how you like your makeup trial and decide after that though. If you don’t love it, find someone else.

That’s about right, I’ve been looking into having my make-up/hair done.  And make-up alone is at least $100.

Seems more than reasonable to me.  I’m having on-site hair for the BMs at $50/each and $75/bride (with a hair trial).  The MUAs here charge $100 for just the onsite makeup alone.

The other thing I would mention – that’s ALOT of work for one MUA and one stylist – be sure you allow enough time for 10 people.

Seems quite reasonable to me… I have my stylist coming to my hotel room do my wedding day hair and  makeup for $125 for my ladies and $125 + $15 for me because I am getting air brushed makeup.

I always wear BE/Minerals and I haven’t had a problem with my professional pics coming out strange. I make sure to use the Matte foundation though.

If you’d prefer her to use another type of makeup, just ask. She might require that you purchase it, but then you can keep it. I’d definitely go for something with more coverage. Also, I’m pretty sure Bare Minerals has SPF in it, which you should stay away from on your wedding day because the flash from photography will reflect and make you look shiny. I’d look a foundation that gives a more flawless finish. I highly recommend Makeup forever HD foundation. Personally, I wouldn’t want to pay $100 for wedding makeup that is going to look like my every day look. I’d bring up your concerns at your trial and see how she responds.

Her prices are very reasonable for that many people, and on-location services, but I would rethink using Bare Minerals. Firstly, that makeup is reflective and it will make your face appear lighter than it is in flash photography. Secondly, put some on and try crying–streak city. The makeup just doesn’t withstand a full day of sweat and tears and it’s impossible to patch once you’ve streaked the foundation with a tear. I’d recommend a liquid foundation without SPF so it doesn’t reflect, and I’d also recomend topping your entire makeup off with Model in a Bottle sealer spray. Your makeup won’t budge!
