@match34:  What kind of foundation is she applying and is she doing lashes?

@match34:  From my experience, for full face with lashes 45minutes to an hour.  Usually more for the bride.

my artist came at 12 and was supposed to do my mom from 12-1, my sis from 1-2, and me from 2-4.  This includes hair.  HOWEVER for some reason she took FOREVER on my mom and didn’t start me till 3:30.  Needless to say, I was freaking out.  Build in extra time, just in case!

@match34:  I would allow more time.  Things always seem to take longer than you planned.

My makeup lady told me about 45 minutes to an hour each, and longer for the bride….. she’s starting at 9am and our photos will begin at 4pm.  (I’m having airbrush and everyone else is having regular makeup).  She also said that she likes to do the bride somewhere in the middle so she doesn’t feel stressed or rushed anymore than she should on her wedding day.

I think it depends on the artist and what you’re having done. When I used to do makeup for weddings (I’m no longer practising) I would take 20-25 minutes on each girl. But I would also leave extra time to do touch-ups or change things.

It’s alway tough getting everything in before the early ceremonies.  The fact that she’s bringing another person makes a HUGE difference!  My advice is to create a schedule for everyone’s hair and makeup.  Make sure everyone knows ahead of time what they want and that the stylists are on the same page.  Make sure you’re scheduled in somewhere so that you don’t get slighted for time. 

I know it’s going to be tough, but I really would recommend trying to start earlier than you planned.

@match34:  I asked my makeup lady this – she said she wants hair done first – obviously the first person she puts makeup on at 9am probably wont have their hair already done, but for the most part, she’d prefer that way.  The hairdresser really didn’t seem to have a preference, so we’ll try to do hair first then.

Definitely allow for extra time – I figure it’s better to have extra time left over and get to relax for a little bit w/ my friends than to be rushing or run out of time. My makeup girl said to allow for 1 – 1.5 hours for my makeup (I have a separate hair person), and 30 – 45 min for everyone else. I’m the only one that has a trial. My mom’s not picky as long as it looks pretty natural. For two of my bridesmaids, I’ll probably do the trial myself (i’m pretty decent w/ makeup) just so they can play around w/ colors and get a feel for what they want day of. I won’t do as muuch w/ foundation/concealer/powder but more shadow and eye stuff.
