i’m looking into prices for a makeup artist to come out and do my makeup and the makeup for my bridesmaids…
the cheapest i found was $90 for the bride, $45 for the bridesmaid, and $40 for the moms. does this sound reasonable?
and i would love some specific recommendations if you loved your makeup artist? (many of us are asian, if that makes a big difference!)

Sounds very reasonable. I think the price depends pretty much on experience and professionalism. I got a couple of quotes from professional make-up artists and they charge USD 200 for the bride and about USD 75 for each bridesmaid. As for the trial runs I paid between 80-100 bucks..

I think that quote sounds very reasonable, especially if they are coming out to you. I paid $100 for me, and $75 for each Bridesmaid or Best Man.
I found my makeup artist at my MAC counter. I made an appt. for pro application for my engagement pics and loves my artist so much, I hired her to freelance for the wedding. She’s in OC, though.
PM me if you want her contact info. Half of my bridal party was Asian, and our makeup was flawless throughout the whole wedding.

I think that sounds reasonable. I had mine done by Kalena Lorrain (she has a myspace profile of a lot of brides she has done) and I LOVED HER. She is amazingly talented and sweet. She’s married too so was very invested in making my day affordable and wonderful.
