I鈥檓 pretty much gonna give up on finding a MUA at this point lol they are either booked 3 weddings on my date, or they are $600 just makeup for me, or needs $1000 makeup minimum cuz right now October is still peak season even with covid lol
Anyway, have no idea MUA is the one I鈥檓 gonna have a hard time to find 馃槀

    Try the thumbtack app. You should be able to find one there.

    Where do you live (if you don't mind me asking)? Also, is that a price you feel comfortable paying? I live in FL and I've never seen a mua charge $600-1000.

    Kentucky! I honestly think weddings here are way more expensive than some of the bigger cities! I would pay up to $200-$300 for a good makeup. The $1000 minimum place wasn鈥檛 terribly pricing per person, but I only have 2 bridesmaids and the owner said 鈥渙h if you have more than 4/5 bridesmaids you should be good鈥 lol 馃槀 our state still have 50% capacity for gathering, so I don鈥檛 understand why they think it鈥檚 ok to ask such high minimum for wedding makeup

    I could understand if that is both hair and makeup; but not just makeup! Yikes. Definitely search around.

    Well, there are a lot of mua's that travel (mine travels). I would look into wedding wire for your area, and maybe ask friends that you know. Also, many Mua's on Instagram travel. Maybe you can find one you like and pay the traveling fee (which I think would still be cheaper than the $1000 minimum)

    I'm really surprised by that. My hair/makeup team is a fairly well known (I think) salon out of Charleston, SC and they are $125 each for hair and makeup for me. I'm very surprised it is that much for you in KY.

    Me too! I feel like most of the MUA are booked at this point, anyone left are the ones are too expensive or maybe they were booked before covid so they are only changing price on new clients.

    Actually I was quoted $750 - $1000 for just myself in the Keys for next weekend because it鈥檚 a 鈥渉oliday鈥 weekend, I鈥檓 having a sunrise wedding so it鈥檚 鈥渁fter hours鈥 - so they are out there.

    I was quoted that much and more for next weekend and that was inquiries months in advance - they wanted to charge extra for a holiday weekend, after hours, on-site, etc.


    I鈥檝e opted to do it myself and honestly with some YouTube tutorials - I have my makeup looking better than most professionals.
    You could try to reach out to a cosmetology school and see if a student would be interested in making some extra money.

    I think that is the best option! Either way I think you'll look stunning on your wedding day. Best of luck!

    Woah that is expensive. Is it just you who needs makeup or your bridesmaids as well?
