I tipped my lady $10. And bought $80 worht of stuff. I know it’s not much….but uh, if I could have afforded more, I wouldn’t have had the free trial in the first place =]

I agree with the 10-20.  What you could also do is find out how much people usually charge, or ask her how much she usually charges them tip the customary 10-20%.

Ooops. Really? I went to Sephora and had a make up trial. I didn’t even think of tipping the artist (and I’m a very conscientious tipper!). I did buy $150 worth of stuff though.

Damn. Now I feel bad.

I completely forgot to tip my hair and makeup artists at the trial but I added it to their tip for the wedding.  I would say 15-20% of what they normally charge is good, especially if they are coming to you.
