This lady is amazing! I live in Texas but got married in Alabama. I found her through a referral from another makeup artist. Katina was so amazing helping me find the right look for my wedding. She was quick to respond to my many text and emails and also offer advise on what would work with my hair and skin. The day of my wedding she made me look so beautiful, almost like a totally different person, but in a good way. My pictures turned out amazing and I did not blend in with all the white, which is awesome. Her makeup and hair skills are over the top. I would recommend her to anyone looking for makeup and hair for any event. If I ever have something in the future come up, I will find a way to get Katina, even if I have to fly her to me. :)

Looking for a makeup artist and hire stylist? Look no further. Abby is a genius. She made this old bride (at 60) look like a princess as well as my two sisters who are older than me. Everyone complimented our hair and makeup! Abby will make you feel comfortable and have a lot of fun! She takes your wants and needs the the look you want and makes them into reality.

    Mackenzie did an incredible job on my makeup! Not only did my makeup look amazing, but she also really focused on keeping everything sanitary which I find a lot of makeup artists don’t pay attention to. Will definitely use her again and recommend her to all of my friends and family!

    I have worked with Temperance in several occasions but most notably was my wedding day. She was very punctual and professional and did my makeup and the makeup of my bridal party. Her work was amazing and the pictures are flawless. You definitely get your monies worth plus more with Temperance. She listens to her clients and delivers their vision. She is definitely my makeup artist no matter how casual or formal the occasion!

    Wimberley Weems is a phenomenal hair and makeup artist. Since I've been in college I've experimented with my hair styles, and it damaged my hair. Since I've known Wimberley, she has been able to nurture my hair back to its beauty and wonderful health in less than a year. She is very good with shaping and color. She knows all the scientific facts about hair and could turn thin, fine hair into very thick luxurious hair. She gives me all the updated beauty tips with my make up, and because of her I always look like a model. She brings out your natural beauty and makes you feel great about yourself! Beauty and hair! You must contact or hire this talented artist!!💋

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

    A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

    • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
    • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
    • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
    • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
    • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
    • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
    • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
    • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.

    Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

    There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

    On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.

    How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

    A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

    • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
    • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
    • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
    • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
    • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

    How much should you tip a wedding makeup artist?

    Wedding makeup artists ensure you and your bridal party are looking your best bright and early on your wedding day. Tipping a wedding makeup artist for their hard work is standard practice, and is also greatly appreciated. A tip of 15 percent to 20 percent of the total bill is appropriate. You may consider tipping extra if the makeup artist or someone on their team went above and beyond — for example, squeezing in Aunt Martha at the last second or redoing a flower girl’s hair free of charge after she dunked it in the fountain.

    A gratuity is a reflection of a job well done, so if the wedding makeup artist was late, did a shoddy job or didn’t provide all the services you negotiated, you are not required to tip. Talk with your wedding makeup artist prior to the event to ask how they prefer payment and gratuity to be handled. Can you pay by credit card the day of the event and include a tip then? Do you need to pay in cash the day of the event? Find out ahead of time how to manage payment for services so you can be prepared with cash or credit cards as needed. Even better, delegate the task of payment to someone in your bridal party so you can just enjoy your day.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
