shaquansia did a great job on my daughters make up today.she took her time and made sure my daughter was comfortable with her first makeup experience from a professional. I really appreciated the fact that she asked her what she wanted as far as colors and makeup options . these days people just do what they want not thinking about the client feelings. we had a 1pm appointment when homecoming was at 8pm. me and my daughter wanted to cancel the appointment in fear the makeup wouldn't last and shaquansia promise us it would so we went, not only did it last I think its probably going to stay until school on Monday. I think she was even more flawless when she left for homecoming . this is a very educated women who knows her job and is passionate about it . we will be back soon thank you for making my daughter look like a princess.

Vanessa is an awesome makeup artist!! She was very patient with me and took time to throughly answer all of my questions. She did my makeup for my beach wedding and it came out perfect! Which is hard for me to say because I am a VERY picky person! She even went as far as providing me and my future husband a wedding day gift the day of our wedding, which was so thoughtful!! And she came to my hotel suite to do my makeup which gave me time to settle my nerves because I don’t think I would be able to focus on driving to her location just thinking about my big day :-) If u are looking for a makeup artist that has patience and make awesome recommendations (she suggested eyelash extensions, which I have never worn before) but she recommended to give my eyelashes a boost, turned out great! It was natural looking and not thick or looked like bat wings that I see some women wearing which looks so unnatural. My makeup looked natural and soft when she was done, which was the look I was going for. I highly recommended Vanessa for your wedding day makeup needs!!!

Laina Coleman is a great hairstylist and makeup artist. She did my hair and makeup for my senior prom and it looked great and held up all night! I got lots of complements on it! I needed a hair cut a few weeks later so I went back to Laina and she did another great job! She's super fun, easy to talk to, and great at what she does!

When it comes to my customers,I focus more on skincare as well as the makeup. Preparing the skin properly gives a more flawless makeup application. I believe it starts with skincare first. Also, I focus on perfecting looks with foundation that look more like skin.

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.
