I paid $350, which included makeup with airbrush foundation & false lashes, hairstyling, two trials, and a touch-up kit with a full-size MAC lipstick. I’m sure you could find someone to do yours for less, if all you’re looking for is simple makeup, but it depends on where you live, too. I’m in the midwest (Ohio/Michigan).

I paid $350 + 20% gratuity (so $420), which covered day of makeup with airbrush, false lashes (the individual type), and 1 trial. Hair was separate, which was $300 plus gratuity for day of and 1 trial. I also had to pay $200 to have it onsite. I am in New England.

I didn’t need to touch up the makeup at all throughout the day and evening.

i got quotes from 380 – 600. honestly i did feel thats a bit ridicules for a one day make up. its not like…. i don’t know how to do make up, or they can really turn me into someone 200% prettier than i normally is. but apparently, thats the common price range in where i live

Holy crap! I put my own makeup on everyday, but i must be doing it wrong if brides are willing to  pay over $300 for makeup! Im doing my own hair and make up on my big day :p

Where I’m from – suburb area – the nicer places charge around $100 for hair ($150 with trial) and $60 for makeup ($100 with trial, add $40 for airbrush).

I’m getting my wedding day hair done for $65 and my makeup done (including false lashes) for $40. I definitely do NOT envy you ladies who have to pay so much!!

Hair is 60 dollars and Im not sure about the trial cost and my makeup is 215 but that’s for day of make up includes false lashes, make up trial, 3 brow waxes in the 3 months leading up to the wedding and 3 facials in the 3 months leading up to the wedding. I normally get my eye brows done at this place and I’ve heard their facials are amazing so I’m psyched and I think I’m getting a nice deal for a nice package.

I’m getting my make up air brush for $75. I am not sure how much my hair is going to cost but I know the hair stylish and she is coming to my wedding so if I am lucky maybe she will do it as a wedding present 🙂

I paid $100 + gratuity for a trial and am paying $120 + gratuity for make-up the day-of. She is coming on-site and also doing all of my bridesmaids’ make-up ($80 each), so there is also an on-site fee of $100.

This is makeup only…hair is separate.

I think I paid $175 for the MUA to come to my hotel & do my hair & makeup, including extensions & airbrushing.
