I think that is your call.  If she is a friend or someone you go to alot, it might be a nice guesture, however not required especially since she is getting all the money and not having to give a portion to a salon or agency etc…

I think she also realizes that you are already paying a lot just to bring her with you, so she would probably understand if you didn’t have enough money for a tip.

If your makeup artist is self-employed (i.e. doesn’t have to pay rent to a salon), then you don’t have to tip her.  That’s generally the rule of thumb for all vendors.  Maybe as a nice gesture, you can buy her lunch while she’s in Florida or something, but I don’t think she’s expecting anything other than what you’re already paying for.

I think you are paying an awful lot as it is… her fee is straight in her pocket. Unless you have a ton of money for tipping I would say its not necessary.
