I would imagine bridal makeup is likely to be long wearing, and more keyed towards photographing well, whereas evening makeup would just be a glam makeup look. 

I would just play dumb and ask her what she means because ‘aren’t they the same thing?’

anonocat:  I wouldn’t mention anything about a “wedding” I would just say its a party. It’s stupid how much prices are jacked up when you say “wedding” or “bride”. It’s not like they’re going to use 24k gold eyeshadow just because you’re a bride.

Say it’s for a party but that it needs to photograph well and hold up for at least x number of hours. You’re right: it’s not “technically” your bridal makeup.

anonocat:  I would be honest with her because you don’t want to be arguing over the costs the day of and start off your day in a bad mood. A lot of makeup artists automatically upcharge for weddings- thats just how it is. They tend to spend way more time with you and a lot of times they also include or give you a discount on a trial whereas a night out they can whip that together and make changes the day of.

Tell her that you are already married and this is a party to celebrate your civil ceremony with the people that were not able to be there.

anonocat:  besides the trial and prep leading up to the wedding, no there isn’t much of a difference between the quality of the makeup.

anonocat:  I went a very inexpensive route and went to a makeup salesperson. She sells Mary Kay and has a reputation of being a great MUA (Not just the 1st MK salesperson off the street). She offered to charge $20 the day of the event OR to do my makeup for free if I purchased products from her after our trial run. My makeup was flawless and held up ALL night, even after being in the heat of the day.
