Unless they are talented, usually hair person is a hair person, makeup is a completely different talent.

I would find someone that knows their own talent well

I know a girl who does both hair and make up. She does hair and make up quite beautifully. The only thing is that she uses her exclusive brand of make up. I like her make up, Artistry, but for cover up I’d like to use m.a.c. her prices are pretty reasonable and she gives a family discount…. I wish I could just diy that day but I might be to nervous or something.

Realistically speaking, hair and makeup for a bridal party can take between 60-90 min, depending on the person’s skin and hair.  Bride should be 60-120min, also depending on the complexity of hair construction. So either way if you have a large(r? ish?) bridal party the person might need an assistant anyways. It depends how much time you budget – and also, they can work while you take photos or something. it really depends. 

Think of it like this, one is painting, and one is sculpting. Perhaps one sculpts and paints and is talented in both areas, but personally I prefer someone whose the star at paintnig and a different star for sculpting.  hope this helps.

i think it just depends on the size of your bridal party and how long you want to spend getting ready. my make up person also does hair, but due to time constraints we’re having two seperate people. they are charging by the hour, so for us it works to have more people there so they’ll work faster and get it done.

To make a long story short, definitely have TWO separate people!
