I think that depends entirely on your area… I’m having my wedding in the Baltimore, MD area and I’m paying approx. $550 for myself and 5 bridesmaids.

I think it varies. Not even just by area, but person by person. I’m getting my makeup done for $60 and that included falsies and air brushing. But I’ve seen people that I don’t even think are as good as my MUA that charge around $100.

mrschatman2b: I am also a Charlotte, NC bride 🙂 The prices I have been given so far are around $200/bride airbrush makeup and between $80-$120/bridesmaid. A few of the bigger names (those with ads in Carolina Bride magazines) are probably more expensive. My aunt, who is a Mary Kay director will be doing our makeup because I could not afford an extra $800 JUST for makeup!

I’m paying $600 total for hair & makeup for myself, 2 bridesmaids and the mother of the groom. I feel like I got a pretty good deal.

I paid about $150 each per person (so $600 for 4 of us plus $100 for my trial) but I LOVED my makeup person – she was EXCELLENT! one of my best vendors (though very in demand so scheduling was a bit difficult)
most places I have looked are $75 – 150 ish per person but some also have a minimum spend to come on site etc

Mine is $100 for me (bride) with airbrush and lashes included. She’s probably the most well-known artist in my immediate area and works on a lot of local magazines and celebrities. Trial is extra. She’s also doing all my bridesmaids for $85 each. Then she is coming on-site so that’s a $100 fee.
So all said and done, $540 for myself and 4 bridesmaids on-site, no trial included.
