How much do makeup artists charge for travel?

What are the usual rates and how far out can they travel?

Hello,

First of all, congratulations on your engagement!

It all depends on where your makeup artist is based and wher you want them to travel.  A good makeup artist should be transparent and upfront about all costs.

Faces Makeup & Hair is based in Sydney.  We do not charge a travel cost for jobs of over $400 within Sydney metropolitan.  However, if the job is in Central Coast or Blue Mountains for example, we charge a travel charge of approximately $180 per stylist.  Our pricing can be downloaded from our website: http://www.facesmakeupandhair.com.au/bridal

What's the average cost for hair and makeup per person?

And is the bride more expensive? :)

First of all, congratulations on your engagement!

The cost of bridal makeup & hair varies a lot dependng on your city, the experience of your makeup artist and hair stylist.  Generally the cost for the bride is a bit more to reflect the fact that more time will be spent on her on the day so that every single detail is perfected.

Look for businesses that have transparent and open price lists, in that case you will not be caught by any hidden cost that you may not have budgeted for.

Tape VS Clip-In Hair Extensions: Which is better for the big day

Looking to add length to my hair (currently medium length with thick hair) and wondering which is better, tape or clip in extensions. Also the price ranges of both and some recommended salons/companies. Thanks!

Hello ChloeStark

Congratulations on your engagement!

As professional hair stylists, we always prefer clip-ins. This is because we have the flexibility of where to place the extensions depending on the style you are after. However, it will be best to discuss this with your hair stylist at your trial to make sure you choose the approrpiate extensions for that specific hair style.

All the best!

is it better to have the same hair and makeup stylist, or hire one of each skill?

like have one person do hair and makeup, or book an individual hair stylist and an individual mua

Many businesses or companies are skilled at both these days. It is easier to hire one business that does both so that you can communicate with one less supplier in your wedding planning.  On the wedding day, it is also easier to have a team of makeup artists and hair styilsts who have consistently worked together as a team so that the preparation flows smoothly and efficiently.

We at Faces Makeup and Hair specialise in both bridal makeup and hair styling.  We have a team of makeup artists and hair stylists who work together all the time to ensure the bridal party's makeup and hair is ready on time.  We help you plan the preparation timing and take care of your timetable for you.  You also communicate only with our dedicated booking manager who will take care of all the logistics for you.

how much would hair and makeup (together) usually cost?

Hi Rosanna

A good bridal business should provide you with a transparent price list so you do not have to guess when you are doing your budget.  At Faces Makeup and Hair we have our price list available for download from our website.  We charge a set pricing per person and it does not depend on the number of people in your bridal party.

How much is an average cost for makeup?

Hi there, I've been quoted around $900 for make up + eyelashes for myself and two bridesmaids and hair for us all plus a blow dry for my mum +$50 travel fee. Another bride has told me that is an outrageous price, so now I'm unsure. Is this an average price for hair and make up or would that be paying above average? Thanks!

Hello there,

The price a makeup artist charges will basically depend on their experience and reputation.  A bridal makeup can cost anything from $50 per person (this is your Avon lady down the road) to $500 per person (this is the celebrity makeup artist).

We are a multi-award winning business and as a price guide we currently charge:

$280 (incl. GST) for the bride's makeup and hair

$210 (incl. GST) for a bridesmaid or mother's makeup and hair

which you will find to be very reasonable for the quality of service we provide and the experience we have.

Wondering which hair hairstyle goes with what dress neckline?

When choosing a bridal hairstyle, it is more important to consider what suits your face shape rather than what goes with your wedding gown. That said, if you would like your gown's neckline to show, consider an updo.

Always have a trial with your hairstylist beforehand to make sure both of you are on the same page.

Check out our gallery for some inspiration pictures.

Is it better to book one specific make up artist, or a makeup artistry company with multiple artists

There are pros and cons either way.  Generally speaking, you get a more personalised approach from an individual, but if you book with a company, you will have access to back up makeup artists in case one specific makeup artist falls ill or unable to attend due to unforeseeable circumstances.   At Faces Makeup and Hair we have striked that balance by maintaining a close-knit team of 7 stylists only.  You can specify the stylist you want for your wedding day (and your trial).  If you do not have a preference, we will allocate one to you and you will have the same stylist for the wedding day as well as for the trial.  (In any case we all have a similar style you won't be able to tell the difference between our stylists from our gallery photos!)

I've never gotten a spray tan before... should I try it a few times before the wedding?

Or do you have any other ideas or suggestions?

Hi Ruby - definitely!! You want to make sure that you love the colour and the coverage before you commit yourself to the real deal.

In addition, what would be really helpful is to arrange a trial makeup session with your professional makeup artist 2 days after you have had your spray tan done - in that case you can make sure that the colour of your foundation will blend flawlessly into your spray tan, and that the colour of the makeup will work with the spray tan colour of your choice.

What is the best kind of lipstick to wear on your wedding day?

I'm not sure what kind of lipstick to wear, matte? Or liner all over? Or a specific brand that stays on?

Hi Kelly, from our extensive experience we would recommend using a combination of liner, lipstick and lipgloss (unless you want a completely matte finish, in which case you can skip the gloss). Each of these products has a different function - the liner will prevent the lip-colour from bleeding into any fine lines around the lips; lipstick provides the intensity of the colour that you want (which can be sheer or rich), and lipgloss provides beautiful dimensions to the lips which we found particularly nice in photography because of the way that it reflects light.

You generally only need to re-apply lipstick and lipgloss during the day. There are techniques that a professional makeup artist can do to make the lipstick stays longer so you do not have to re-apply too often.
