First of all, what kind of make-up is it? Regular or airbrush? How many girls do you have in your wedding party? I have just booked my make-up artist for the wedding day, and she too will come to my house. My package is $160 total and that is airbrush. That also includes false lashes a tube of lip color for touch-ups and my 2 flower girls for free. The she charges my maids $50 a piece including eye lashes if they wish. As far as the hair, I do hair, goes I usually start my updo’s at $50 and up depending on the length of their hair and what they are wanting.

My quite was $70 for the girl to come to me. I think that’s pretty reasonable!

I’m paying $75 for regular (non-airbrush) makeup. That includes a trial at the MUA’s home, her coming to me on the day of, and false lashes. I think $50 sounds pretty reasonable.

I am a makeup artist and that is extremely cheap.  I charge $115 for non-airbrush brides, which includes a lip color, lashes, and complimentary consultation.

Additional people are $75 each.  No discount on multiples.  The reason?  Our kits are EXPENSIVE!  And it takes us a good 30 minutes per extra person, and I like to take 45-60 on the bride to make sure she is absolutely perfect! 

You want to look beautiful in your pictures.  You pay for the experience and talent, honestly.  Makeup is very iffy.  The wrong product can leave you looking like a ghost in your pictures or worse.

Also, the fact that she doesn’t charge a travel fee is very very generous.  I charge .15 for every mile outside 10 miles of my zip code.  Remember, this is our career, and we have to make a living.  We can’t charge less than our labor/supplies cost.

Just my two cents in there! 🙂

50bucks is pretty cheap, i would def ask for a trial run (since you never wear makeup).
