If that is what you guys agreed to and what you paid for then no.

Do you have a contract signed with this? If so she has a responsibility to you. This is your day. You shouldn’t have to change your day to fit her schedule.

Well, my hair/make-up stylist was the fiance of the best man, so my situation is an exception that she was there all day and night.  However, she didn’t really do touch-ups.  Other weddings I’ve been in, the makeup people leave once everyone is done before the ceremony.  Surely you can do your own touch ups if you need them?  You’d be surprised at how much you don’t, other than lips.

My make up artist is coming from 12-4 but her and another artist are doing 7 people including me. I dont think she is staying to do touch ups but she said she will give me samples of mascara and lip gloss. I am having airbrush done and that last over 12 hours.

Yes, if this is part of the contract she agreed to, then she should stick by it. I get that her kids have a performance, but unless you are a personal friend and know her kids there was no reason for her to tell you her kids were upset. That’s not so professional.

Although I do think that 7 hours for a makeup artist is excessive. I’ve never heard of having someone on hand just for touchups. Usually the artist hands you the lipstick and powder she used for a continuous look and you touch up yourself.
