the make up artist that i plan to hire is very expensive.so was planning to hire her for myself, and another make up artist who is less expensive to make up my MOH+bridesmaids.
this also helps to speed up the process since it’s going to be an early morning, and things would go much faster if 2 make up artists worked at the same time….especially since the make up artist that will be making uping me is also my hair stylist.
I was wondering if it’d be “rude” to the make up artists when they find out i’ve hired another, and that another artist will be on board.
What do you guys think?Thanks!

I don’t think it would be rude at all, its business 🙂 I don’t think they will even think twice that you have two different stylists (one for you and one for your Bridesmaid or Best Man, which makes sense.)

I’m not sure if it’s rude or not. I would just let each know ahead of time who they will be working on.

For what it’s worth, you might want to mention this plan to your pricier artist – she might be willing to negotiate. If not, then I think your current plan is fine.

Definitely mention it to both of them. I think that’s a gray area. It might also cause chaos with space and set-up needs – i’d be sure to discuss this with them beforehand. You may need to get ready in two separate rooms if you are having two full makeup stations set up!

I would make sure both know but I don’t think there is anything wrong with it.

I’d make sure there is enough space. My mom and close friend had a makeup artist onsite. My MUA knew about it, but when we showed up to do my makeup, the other artist had chosen the only and best lighting to do the makeup. My friend said “oh, do you want us to move”? I just looked at her like “Are you KIDDING ME?!?”. We ended up having a different space option to do my makeup… but it definitely would have been an issue (because the natural light in the room was poor).
All that to say is – I don’t think it’s a big deal at all. Just mention it to both and make sure there is enough natural light/space to go around!

Does your primary makeup artist have a minimum? i.e. my makeup artist has a three-person minimum. If you aren’t in violation of contract, you could do it. Though I’d warn both artists ahead of time.
