She came a long way for a very good price and did very well on my makeup. It looked a little bit caked on but only if you got right up in my face. It looked great in pictures. She did everything I asked and used all new stuff and didn't mix anything.

My work has been featured in magazines and a few music videos. I worked for MAC cosmetics and many day spas, but now I want to branch out and have the freedom to work for myself. I use mostly MAC makeup and VS PRO. I would love to work with you and give you the perfect makeup for whatever occasion, which includes holding classes for makeup beginners.

1. What is included in my 'consultations'?- I will ask YOU, the client many questions pertaining to the service/(s) that YOU want so I will UNDERSTAND as much as POSSIBLE about you and what look you are going for. 2. I will allow you to tell me ANYTHING you need and show me photos of what you are describing to me until we are BOTH satisfied an comfortable in knowing we BOTH understand what YOU want. 3. I will take EVERY precaution to do ANY chemical process on your hair so that it does MINIMAL damage but YES ALL chemicals do SOME damage to EVERY hair type. 4. I will ALWAYS cut less first, because I can ALWAYS cut more but I cannot regrow your hair in that moment!!! =0) 5. If you are unsure of what you want but you know you want a NEW look, I can and will discuss at length with you what I think will look best on and for you and even do what is necessary to show you on your head what it will look like BEFORE cutting or chemically processing your hair. 6. High and Low lights AND Permanent hair Color requires UPKEEP and requires more visits and more of a financial commitment by you, the client, it requires using the proper products at your home as well, I will discuss ALL of this with you BEFORE you commit. 7. If and when you are ready to change your chemical process and go with your NATURAL color or go curly with a perm or a chemical straightener, PLEASE DO NOT change stylist without telling them before your chemical EXACTLY everything you have had done to your hair in the past 5 years at least! 8. I am child friendly and LOVE to do children's 1st haircuts, they are very special! I have had 3 boys of my own and the 1st cut is a baby book memory, let me know and I will offer this to your child free if you are my client AND I will pick up the 'First hair Cut' package that has a lot of goodies in it for the parents to always remember this moment =0). 9. As a Nail tech, I offer manicures and pedicures but I do NOT do the Acrylic or Gel nails and I DO NOT do Silk Wraps, I have had ALL of these done to my nails that have ALWAYS been naturally long and strong and each of these has damaged MY nails in some way, not saying it is bad for YOU but I will NOT give THESE services! 10. I accept cash payments and business & personal checks, I charge 35.00 for any and ALL returned checks and I will only deposit the check once and if I receive a check that it returned ever I will NOT accept a check from that client again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.
