For this, you might need someone who holds a good amount of experience and has the skills to bring your imagination into reality. When you get all of this, you will have to pay for it too.

The price is quite high as compared to what you might pay for your pre-wedding festivities like haldi, sangeet, cocktail ceremony where the package is usually not more than INR 10000 - 20000. However, bridal makeup is altogether very different. Not just the artist uses only high end products, the entire process is quite time consuming and might take up to 4-6 hours. 

What All Does Bridal Makeup Package Include?

Your bridal makeup package will not only include your makeup but a lot of other things. Most commonly, bridal makeup packages include the following - 

  • Lehenga draping 
  • Hairstyle (Including hair extensions and hair accessories)
  • Nail paint

However, the offer packages may vary from one artist to the other. For instance, some makeup artists don't offer hairstyling in the package and you might need to hire a different team for your hairdo altogether. It is up to the bride if she wants to book an artist who offers a complete package or get separate professionals to do her makeup and hair.

Does The Package Include Travel And Accommodation Charges?

If you are hiring a makeup artist from the same city, you don't have to pay for their travel and accommodation. However, if you are having a destination wedding or travelling to another city and want the artist to travel with you too then you will have to pay for their entire travel and accommodation. A lot of makeup artists also charge an extra amount if they are called to a different location to doll you up. 

If that's the case, you will have to inform your artist prior to the wedding day and discuss with them how they plan to reach the venue.
