Wedding makeup artists specialize in providing professional cosmetic services to members of a wedding party. They may focus solely on the bride or extend their services to the bridesmaids, flower girls, groom and immediate family members.
Many established makeup artists offer a variety of wedding packages that often include an initial consultation and a trial makeup session before the wedding. The total cost of this service takes into account the required amount of work, number of people and special requests. Experienced wedding makeup artists can charge between $500 and $2500 as of 2014. Some states require makeup artists to obtain a cosmetology license before working on paying customers.
