I think it depends on where you are (geographically)–I’m paying $125, Bridesmaid or Best Man are paying $75 and my person is coming to me in Long Island, NY.

Sounds good to me.  My MUA is charging $75 for BMs and $150 for me, because I want airbrushed makeup.

Seems reasonable to me, especially if she’s very experienced and has a nice portfolio.

I’m from Miami and $100 (mostly up) are pretty much the average price for just makeup alone. I just had my makeup trial for my e-shoot and the trial was $35. If I chose to book the makeup artist then my wedding makeup will be $50 for the day and $50 for everyone else so it’s a flat rate. My makeup looked incredible, felt so beautiful, and it lasted forever which all reasons are important for me which I am more inclined to book her. Also, this makeup artist comes to my location free of charge.This makeup artist prices are a rarity in South Florida and for the quality of her work, I’m surprised she doesn’t charge more.

I would say that if your budget allows you to spend $100 for makeup and love her work then go for it.

I also think it depends on the type of make-up your having done. What you were quoted for is about how much air brushing costs on average when the artist goes to your house in my area.

Yeah for the type of make-up your having done as well as her years of experience I’d say you have a decent price. $50 is about what I was quoted for a trial too.

Agreed–sounds like you got a reasonable price, plus it’s rec’d by the bridal shop, which is great!
