I don't do traditional makeup, but on principal I would suggest that you do not charge separate rates. Rather, I would charge a single rate but let your potential clients know that you use airbrush and traditional methods depending on what the look calls for and so forth.
I charge $15 extra right now for airbrush. The makeup can be a little more expensive but mainly the setup and cleanup is the main thing I think. You have to clean out the machine between each makeup you do (like foundation, lips, cheeks, etc). So it's a little more expensive.
I don't charge a different price for airbursh. I would suggest to bump up your makeup service price over all (to cover the new technique you've learned and the extra overhead from that new method)...but charge the same price.
I charge $25 more for airbrush and so do most...I've seen ones that dnt charge more but that's because they r new at it and dnt know how to sell it...sometimes I throw it in for the bride when they book alot of bm n family
I do not charge extra; but that is because I book at half and full day rates and my contracts are based on a job's needs. I do weddings occasionally and when I do I bid the job just as I would a commercial job without "extra" costs. Just unprofessional and not good business management. Just my opinion.

Ashleigh, I would suggest you check out the Search function and check out some of the many threads we have had on this subject. You might get a response here, but this topic has been covered in depth before and you will probably appreciate the perspectives that have already been covered.
