Ways to Save Money When Hiring a Bridal Makeup Artist

Written by Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry

Weddings can get expensive, but there are many simple ways to save money when planning your big day. This is especially true when hiring a bridal makeup artist. If you are like most brides, you’ve probably never taken makeup classes on bridal makeup, which means you will need someone who knows what they’re doing. Here are a few ways to get professional makeup services for your wedding day without breaking the bank.

Exchange Makeup Skills for Photos

A simple way to save money when booking a makeup artist is to hire a recent graduate from makeup academy. When a makeup artist graduates from makeup academy, they need a great portfolio to help them land jobs in the real world. But to create a good portfolio, most artists have to do some work for free or for a much lower rate in exchange for photos they can use for their portfolio. To get professional makeup services for free or for a cheaper rate, simply provide them with photos from the weddings in exchange for their services.

Ask for Group Packages

Another way to save money on professional makeup services for your wedding day is to ask for group packages. Group packages that include makeup for the bride as well as the bridesmaids might reduce the cost for the bride. You can ask the bridesmaids to pay for their own share. Don’t forget to ask other members of the wedding party such as mom and the mother-in-law if they would like to get their makeup done as well.
