It depends on how you are icing them, a 1M swirl will take more buttercream then the rose style, etc. But I usually count on it taking 4TBSP buttercream per standard size cupcake, 2TBSP for a mini cupcake. Multiply those numbers by how many cupcakes you are doing and you have the amount of buttercream you need.
