Wait, what? Is this just for you?? Only counting the wedding day it’s £350 which is AU$580. £500 is over AU$800. I live in an expensive Australian city and for one person that is an absolutely bonkers insane price to me! Like, INSANE. For that price I could easily get makeup done for my 3 bridesmaids and my mother as well as myself!

Mine is $85 which includes a trial. Im guessing based in this price it will be less than $50 to get her to come to my venue. can’t say no to that price!

I just had a consult today and the prices are crazy but seem to be the going rate around my area for weddings!!   

$130 day of hair (bride)

$120 day of hair (BM)

$100 + day of makeup 

Plus tip of course…

Trials are just a smidge less…

YIKES!! :+(

I was just going to post a question about make up for the bride. Are these the standard prices for makeup  I find it to be overpriced, but I want my make up to look flawless  I’m confused not sure if I should try someone else. 

I’m I just got the following quote: 

$300 bride $175 additional for air brush $250 extra if I want her to stay an additional 3 hours

$130 for Bridesmaid or Best Man and MOB 

Flower girl free 


this is not even including my hair  😫

teebee14 :  it’s crazy how much it is… hopefully it’s worth the money! 😩 I’ve never knew the cost of the little things such as make up will be so much. 

I just do not want to running around all morning. I guess it’s a convenient fee since she will meet me! 


Good luck to you!!
