I just had my makeup trial run for my wedding and Julie was fantastic! I'm positively thrilled with how my makeup turned out. It has now been almost 6 hours (plus driving in the Arizona heat); my face and lashes still look flawless. My full faith is with this talented makeup artist for my wedding!

Erin and her team were great. I was looking for hair/makeup for my wedding in Sedona and her prices and quality of work were more than fair. Her team was excellent and kept right on track to be finished right on time for pictures. All of my gals were very happy with their hair and makeup and all the ladies accommodated everyone's requests. Hiring someone in Sedona was very expensive and Erin was half the price with no sacrifice on services. She came up to Sedona without any hesitation or issues. I was having difficulty with what to do with my fine hair and she accommodated me with hair trials and working with my vision. In the end, it turned out perfectly. Thank you, again, for being a part of our wedding day and being so graceful and accommodating for us!

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 wedding. It was myself and 4 bridesmaids/my mother. She did a wonderful job! I was nervous for my mom to get her makeup done because she is over 55, but she looked fantastic and natural. It was nice to have the quality work and an enjoyable, comfortable, personality to be around for the day. I recommend Stephanie!

I had a wonderful wonderful experience with Peggy as my makeup artist for my 25th wedding anniversary in Scottsdale Arizona. It was very enjoyable; the makeup was very flawless, it lasted in the heat of the Arizona sun and throughout the evening. I really enjoyed it and the pictures really do show how beautiful I am. Lol! But, it also shows how experienced and how wonderful of a job Peggy did on my face. Thank you very much for making my 25th wedding anniversary such a blast! Latrice Owens

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 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!

Sarah came over at 7am on a Saturday and did a wonderful job with my hair and makeup! I had a photo shoot at 8:30 am and everything went so smoothly despite the early hour. She is so professional and made sure that my makeup is exactly how i liked it before she left, so I felt really confident going into the shoot :)

I've known for a long time that Essence did her own makeup and would always look flawless. I didn't know that she could portray the same beauty on-to others until I witnessed it first hand. I later asked if she could do the same for me and needless to say, I to was FLAWLESS! Thanks Essence! I have never been happier!

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.
