FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
The cost of bridal makeup and wedding in the UK can vary depending on the makeup artist's experience, the type of services you require, and the location. However, on average, you can expect to pay around £150-£200 for basic bridal makeup, and around £800-£1,200 for a full wedding package including hair, makeup, nails, and tanning.
There's no right or wrong answer to this question - it really depends on the bride's preference and what she feels most comfortable with. Some brides prefer to do their hair first so they have a finished look when they do their makeup, while others prefer to do their makeup first so they can see how their overall appearance will come together. Ultimately it's up to the bride!
It depends on the bride's preference and the makeup artist's skills. Some makeup artists are skilled in doing both hair and makeup, while others specialize in either one or the other. Typically, hair is not included in a standard bridal makeup package, but it can be added as an add-on service.
