Katina was literally the most helpful and perfect hair and makeup artist I could have had. As per all weddings, the morning was crazy. Yet Katina kept her calm and did all of our hair and makeup with the help of her lovely assistant so perfectly. She is so sweet, so easy to talk to about anything, and you can tell she knows exactly what she is doing and how to bring the best face out of anyone :) I am still to this day getting compliments on how beautiful I looked on my wedding day. The pictures are phenomenal but to be honest my makeup was flawless the whole day through - and my wedding had a serious downpour that drenched both me and my husband and the wedding guests! I would without a doubt have katina do my wedding all over again. She is the total package: sweet, easy-going, talented, and efficient. Thanks so much Katina, you made my wedding day go with such ease and I’m so thankful that I found you!! ❤️

Abby is wonderful. My bridesmaids and I all had such a good and peaceful time with her on the morning of my wedding. She listened to what we wanted and did exactly what we asked for. She is easy going, reasonably priced, and fun! I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup. Also, my wedding day was a bit hot, and I sweated on my face...but somehow, I didn't look like I was sweating at all. I looked completely dry. Amazing.

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!

I had a wonderful experience and Coco made me feel right at home. She patiently listened to both mine and my mothers wishes and gave expert advice. I'll be sure to recommend her to anyone and everyone who needs hair and makeup done. Plus, by the time my event started(6 hours after I saw her) my makeup still looked beautiful.

I am a creative, well rounded professional with over eight years experience in air brushing and manual techniques of application on all races and ethnicities. Undoubtedly, I feel I would be a great asset to your event, by consistently executing optimal results. My degree in Communication Studies with a concentration in Nonverbal Communication had afforded me specialized insight, eminently distinguishing me from other makeup artist. It has given me in-depth knowledge of the physical components and factors that influence attributes such as a person’s perceived level of attractiveness, professionalism, trustworthiness, and creditability; all of which are paramount in appealing to the viewing public and guest of any nature. With this in mind, not only am I able to enhance the overall attractiveness of the client, but also formulate a look that communicates professionalism, trustworthiness, and creditability to the viewing public. My personable and perceptive disposition creates a safe and welcoming environment for my clients, promoting collaborative efforts in maintaining and perfecting the best and most current look for the client. Communications is a field in which I have great interest, but hair and makeup artistry are my true passion. If hired, your event will provide me the opportunity to incorporate both my interest and passion, ultimately fulfilling a life goal of mine. Thank you for your time and consideration.

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.
