I had wedding photo shoot this Wednesday and hired Julie as my makeup artist and hair stylist. She offered a trial, which helped both of us to know what may work best and she adjusted the makeup accordingly. She is also very considerate and easy-going in. I strongly recommend her for your wedding makeup.

Erin was awesome! She did our hair and makeup for a 25th anniversary party. My sister has tight curly hair and Erin straightened it and threw in some big curls. She looked amazing! Erin pinned flowers in our hair and did an amazing job with big smoky eyes and awesome lashes. It was a great experience and she is worth ever penny!

Nataliya is wonderful. I submitted a late request to get my makeup done and she was able to work with me. Not only was the makeup beautiful, she was a joy to be around. I highly recommend these services.

Lexi did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup trial. It was really convenient that she was able to travel to my home. The curl on my hair turned out beautiful! She knew which makeup shades to choose to work well with my skin tone and took her time to get everything right. I can't wait to see everything together on my wedding day. She is also very easy to talk to and get along with. Thanks Lexi!

Bonita is an absolute awesome makeup artist. I've had the pleasure of having her so my makeup twice and I am hooked. I'm a person who never or rarely wears makeup, so I was unsure of what to expect. But Bonita came in and made everything so easy. All I had to do was sit and smile. She is very professional, she knows what she's doing, she asks questions along the way, is tinely, and great overall. I recommend her to anyone. If you give her an idea, she can make it happen for you, or if you prefer her to freestyle she's still awesome. She provide tips as well while doing your makeup, which is a huge plus because you can learn a little about how to pamper your own skin in between.

She was hired to provide hair styles and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. She and her staff did an amazing job and had several comments on how well they did. They also traveled to my home. She is very reasonable with her prices as well. I recommend her and her staff, they are awesome and very professional. I also hired her as my hair dresser and see her every 6 to 8 weeks along with her nail tech she has on staff. She's a 50 minute drive for me but well worth the travel.

Stephanie did my makeup for a casual night out in the town. She completely exceeded my expectations!!! I first got in touch with her over social media. She was extremely responsive and did everything she could to make sure she worked with my schedule (my schedule is always so filled). I went to her makeup studio in her apartment, she actually lives close by. It was SO clean, and she made sure I was comfortable. My makeup looked exactly how I wanted. I have a wedding in august and will definitely be going back to her!!! No need to look any further for a makeup artist - Steph was the best!!!

Katie was amazing at our fashion show that we had done for a charity for Florence Crittenton. She stepped up to the plate and did the makeup for our fashion show models. The models spoke highly of her on how professional she was. I would highly recommend her work. Thank you from Watercolors High Fashion Desert. Scottsdale Arizona. Shelley Wood

I needed a makeup artist for a video shoot. Peggy agreed with only a few days notice and accommodated me by adjusting other commitments that she had. She arrived exactly on time, and immediately went to work. She is a professional in all respects, and did a great job. Those on the set said I looked 5-10 years younger! Peggy stayed throughout the full shoot, and made adjustments that were needed as time went on. I would highly recommend her.

I had admired Joanna’s makeup and professional work for many years while following her on Instagram. When the time came for my big day, there was no question as to who I wanted to help out with my wedding makeup. She not only made me feel like the most beautiful bride, but masterfully created each look my bridesmaids were wanting as well. She can effortlessly complete any look you throw her way. Joanna has now done my makeup for several different occasions, my wedding being one of them, and I have never felt prettier. I recommend Joanna with the highest regards to anyone looking for professional makeup, whatever the occasion. She is unmatched to anyone else you will find! I can’t wait until my next booking.

I have never had my makeup done by Tiffany, BUT I have known her for almost 11 years. One thing everyone knew about Tiffany growing up was her flawless style, and her even more so perfectly flawless makeup. Over the years her love for makeup has grown into something even more flawless. She is so wonderfully talented!

I was so excited to have my makeup professionally done, and I was not disappointed. Adrienne not only did an amazing job with my makeup, but she made me feel more confident and beautiful as well. She was so sweet and kept me laughing the whole time (which probably made it harder for her to do my makeup, now that I think about it). The end result was amazing! I was so happy with how I looked! I will definitely be going back the next time I have photos taken. Highly recommended!

I loooovvved having Cheryl as my wedding makeup artist. She has such a sweet personality. She arrived early and was ready to work. I wish she could do my makeup everyday. I got so many compliments on my wedding day about my makeup. My makeup lasted all day long on top of that. She is truly an artist. She listened to what type I was going for. I wanted soft glam look for my day. She offered what type of colors would look good with my skin tone. She also used products that would look good for photography. All my bridesmaids loved her as well. You won’t be disappointed if you hire her!

Mel did my make up when I was a bridesmaid for my friend’s wedding. The air brushing made my skin look flawless! She also did makeup for most of the wedding party and they all loved how it turned out ❤️

    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.
