I’m curious, but the logic that makeup kits and school costs a lot and therefor a tip is expected. It costs hundred of thousand of dollars to become a lawyer, and yearly bar fees/association fees costs thousands annually, but I dont tip my lawyer. However, I have gotten quotes from my MUA who are charging more hourly than my laywer is. It doesnt add up. I’m a small business owner in the events rental business (and I have done weddings before). All business have expensive inventory, fee, memberships. What I charge reflexs this. If I’m charging as much as a lawyer hourly, I have built in my “kit fee”, my travel time, my eductaion. A tip might be welcome, but should not be expected.

I felt all my vendors worked hard and I was please with their service so I tipped everyone including my MUA even though she is an owner.
My wedding budget included tipping just like if I go out to dinner, I know I’ll be tipping. I tipped my photographer (owner + assistant), MUA, DJ (he brought a crew of 3 including himself), Day of coordinator, 2 venue coordinators I worked with for 1+ yrs, florist (owner), cake delivery person, and venue staff (servers, chefs, bartenders). My mentality was they all worked hard, were reasonbly priced to begin with and I was very happy with the service I got from each. You don’t have to tip much, but I think anything is appreciated.
