- Wedding: May 2018 - Henry Hill Farm
I’ve been debating if I want to get my makeup done for my wedding, or if I want to do it myself. I normally love doing my own makeup, but since it will be my wedding day I thought I would try letting a professional do it. I was just curious how much it can be and if it’s worth it.

longdistancelove : I’m terrible at makeup so doing it myself was not an option, but I loooooved my hair and makeup artist. She did hair and makeup for $200 total (plus tip) and she came to my parents’ house. I felt beautiful and got so many compliments. It was 100% worth it.

My hair and makeup is costing me 185$. Too much stress to do it yourself on your wedding day. You have other things to worry about.

I was just about to post a thread asking this! I’ve been pricing hair and make-up for my Los Angeles wedding and for the bride alone, makeup + trial seems to run $240-300 and hair is $100-150. I’m going to keep looking, but I’m tempted just to pop by the make-up counter at Sephora a few hours before the ceremony…

I paid $400 for hair and make up plus extra $100 for anyone else who wanted makeup and hair done as well. I paid for my sisters, BMs, and mothers from both sides. The artist stayed with us for the whole day so it was definitely worth it

I am paying $240 for hair & makeup for me including trial and $160 each for the bridesmaids for hair & makeup. They are coming to us at the hotel.

I paid a total of $3,400 for hair and makeup.
This was for myself and 6 other people and included 2 trials, an early morning start and return hair service.
My MUA usually charges $690 plus travel fees for the bride only but the more people you have, the less you pay. So my hair and makeup ended up being $310 and $210 each for 4 BM’s and our moms.

Mine is looking at $340 for just myself (hair + makeup), but that includes the trial. I haven’t gotten price quotes yet for the bridesmaids, mother of the bride, etc.

My makeup just for me was $100 and the trial $90. But if I was good at and enjoyed doing my own makeup then I would have loved to be able to do it myself.
