Im not sure it it is a regional thing like many other wedding expenses, but our makeup is being done by a professional make up artist and she is charging 125 for me and 55 for each girl. Depends I guess on the products they use, how much time they are required for etc etc.

I just set up a trial with my makeup artist and she charges $125 for the bride and $60 for each BM/mom.  I thought that was expensive until I started readed some posts on the hive so now I’m okay with paying that much.

im paying $100 for my trial, this includes air brush and fake lashes. and i pay 125 the day of so $225. I know it’s a lot but I have acne scars. I figure this is definiteily going to be worth it!

I’m sure this is regional.

But FWIW, for my wedding I paid $40 for myself, and $30 for bridesmaids/moms etc

I hired a friend of a friend just out of beauty school. She is professional, but not established yet. She’s charging us 20 each, basically just her travel and supply expenses.

Hair is 100 for me and 35 for the girls (just blow outs) at the salon.

I live in southern California and I was looking at a couple of places that are top rated and charge about $350 for hair and MU the day of and $125 for trials. I had a trial with one of them and HATED it. I am now going with a less known girl that did my hair and MU formy engagement photos and did an amazing job. $100 for the trial and $180 for the day of and $60 for the bridesmaids. It really just depends on how “well-known” the place is. But, as I learned, well known doesn’t mean they are better!

You can expect to pay through the nose in No Cal (just like you do for everything else…I have a ton of family there!).

In San Diego, I paid $450 for my hair, my makeup (with trial) and one friend’s makeup. She traveled to us (and was awesome!)

My girls and I paid $30 Each, plus tip for just the make up.

I think my hair was $65, and I’m not sure what the other girls paid.
