    Yes, if you are requiring that they have it done you need to pay for it. If you give them the choice then no. Simple as that!

    I agree with Ottawa.  If you are requiring them to have it done, you should pay for it.

    If you’re requiring it I think you should at least chip in for some of it if you can’t pay for it all. I wouldn’t pay $55 to have my makeup done voluntarily, so I would feel a little put out if someone made me do it and didn’t offer to pay for it.

    I agree with Ottawa. Since they have no choice in the matter, then you should pay for it out of courtesy.

    I’m with the previous posters – I know I wouldn’t pay that much voluntarily, so if it’s being treated as a requirement then you (bride) should pay for it.

    I agree with the other posters. If you are requiring that they get their makeup done, you should pay for it (esp if they are already paying for their dresses.) For my BMs, I gave them the option of getting hair and makeup done, but was upfront that it was their expense (and they could TOTALLY do it themselves if they preferred not to do it.) They all opted to get their hair done, but not makeup, and I made the appointments for them.

    Nevermind, I meant to vote of course! If you are requiring it they you should pay for it. You can have a makeup artist come and make it optional if the girls want to.

    If you are requiring it, you should pay for it. Otherwise it should be optional.

    I agree with the previous posters. If you weren’t requiring it, then there would be no need. But I’d pay for it if it’s a requirement.

    Yes, you can’t require your friend to do something for you and ask her to pick up the bill (especially when she’s already paying for a dress, shoes, gift, shower, bachelorette party, etc etc etc).

    YES!  Anything that you mandate must be done is something that you need to pay for.  The only exception to this is the dress if it is not more expensive than the average bridesmaid dress.

    I voted before reading your post!

    I read “Should the bride pay for Bridesmaid or Best Man makeup?” and so I voted “Not Necessary”

    HOWEVER, then I read that you are REQUIRING your Bridesmaid or Best Man to get their makeup done professionally and so I agree with other posters if you are requiring them to get their make-up done you should be paying for it. If you give them the choice whether they get it done or do it themselves they can get the bill!
