My wedding is in NYC and we are going to a salon. They are charging $100 for make-up for anyone but the bride ($125).  

My sister got married last year and her MUA came to us and she charged $85 each.

$75 for the bride (includes trial) and $45 for bridesmaid or MOB. This is a mid-sized midwestern city, so I’d expect it to be more expensive in DC. And that doesn’t include gratuity.

This is for going to the salon, not them coming to us, but it actually works out better for us to go to the salon since we can have several hair people working on the party at once.

I paid 1K+ for bride/3 BMs and my mother. (Trial was separate…)

I haven’t shopped around much but I was quoted $25 for a trial and $55 for the day of for me. And for bridesmaids $45. Not bad in my opinion, and the work is good.

Mine is on the high side. She’s based in San Diego and does runway and editorial work. $200 for bride. $100 for travel (my venue is about 50 miles from my MUA). $85 per bridesmaid or MOB. Trial is $80 but not required!

Ugh, you are all lucky to have reasonable pricing 😛 LOL, not really ugh, but with such limited options, I’m finding myself spending MUCH more on makeup/hair than I wanted to.

My makeup will be $150 (day of it will only be $100 because the $150 includes the $50 trial), the moms’ makeup will be $100, and my bridesmaids are $75 each… This is my gift to everyone… Did I mention that I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and 6 bridesmaids?!?!? Lol

Me and my one bridesmaid/MOH is $300 for hair and makeup. I’ll be paying for my MUA’s parking, but that’s it, since she lives very close by. My trial was $80.
