All the quotes I have been given are in the $75-$150 range for the bride.

$400!!??? Wow!! Does that include hair or just makeup?

I just recently inquired about make-up rates while on our engagement pics session w/ our photogs.  Their recommended make-up artist charges $65 for bride and $50 for a trial ($65 for bridal portraits as well).  Her family & friends rates are $45, which applies to BMs, Maid/Matron of Honor, and MOB.

Not sure how typical her rates are, but the $400 you’ve been quoted is OUTRAGEOUS

I am paying $175 and $65 for her to come to my hotel and do makep there. Eyelashes are $12. She has to have a minimum of $300 though. This also includes a trial.

I paid around 125.00 for my make up on my wedding day. 10 dollars extra for eyelashes.  My mum or bridesmaids were 85.00 and she came to our house for that price.  I orginally had a trial done by someone else for  45.00 dollars and I didn’t like my make up at all. That is when I found my 125.00 make up artist and she was well worth it!!

I’m paying $190 for airbrush makeup and hair on my wedding day. Bridesmaids are $95 for both hair & makeup, or they can only have one or the other done for $55.

Mine is $125 for me and $85 each for the BM’s and my mom for makeup.  Hair is additional at the same rates. 

ETA: Your expensive quote includes the trial.  Mine was $75 add’l for each hair and makeup.

@ms.oregon.state: That seems like a fair price.  Some of them seem to charge more if they use airbrush makeup too.  That is the route that I went.  It is suppoed to be cry-proof and sweat-proof.  I intend to be on the dance floor for most of my wedding so I know I will sweat, and I am quite sure I will cry as well.  I will soon find out!

i am paying 50 euro for my make up on the day and the make up artist is coming to my house. I should say too that she is a wonderful make up artist and has tons of experience. I know a few other girls who had her too and she did an amazing job!

For me the average has been

JUST HAIR : $75 – $120 for bride $45 – $65 for bridesmaids

Im using MAC for the day of and they charge $50 in product + lashes (optional) for the service!

I think its insane to be honest.

Im not asking for an updo, just curl my head! And same with my girls, requiring a simple front braid and their choice of a finished style!
