the best thing to do is to honesty look up others in your area who do what your wanting to do and see what they charge. everywhere is different you want to over price or undercut those artist working in you area.
I'm asking purely for research purposes, but in a freelance area of work, how much would you charge per shoot?
Do you charge per hour, per project, per model, or per day?
How much, if any, do you charge for a Kit Fee?
Do you charge for travel expenses if the shoot is out of your local area, if so, how much?
All responses are appreciated.
I am located in Maryland and I finally found some rates of other local artist. It has been suggested to start a little lower in price if you are inexperienced which I am I took this and my kit into consideration in regard to my pricing. My kit is complete and I use quality makeup M.A.C, Urban Decay, Graftobian HD Cream foundation, Ben Nye powders correctors and concealers, I do use drugstore mascara some lipsticks and liners.
I am thinking for event makeup prom/night out etc $50/$55 with lashes
For weddings $150 for the bride that includes a trail , her lip color and blotting paper as a gift
Bridesmaids $60 per person considering possible 10% Off offer for 4 or more (I've seen a disc for 4 or more offered by several artist)
Would my prices be considered gauging?
I've been sharing some of my work that I've done on family and friends and I have gotten inquiries one was for a wedding in November. The bride wanted makeup for herself and 4 bridesmaids I quoted her my price and she acted like it was outrageous. I also had an inquiry for prom who also acted as though my pricing was outrageous. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here if anything? I would really appreciate any tips or suggestions.

Thank you for your response. I settled on my pricing after doing research on several reputable artist in my area. I thought it was reasonable as well I guess I will just stick to my guns and wait for a customer that understands I'm providing a quality service not cut rate. My bride may be relenting she is agreeing to a trail I'm charging for the trail of course that amount will go toward her service if she decides to move forward.
