I hired Ashley for my October 5th wedding. She did an amazing job! We did a trial ahead of time and she came to my place. She arrived on time and was so friendly. I immediately felt comfortable. Then once I saw my makeup I knew I found my makeup artist for my wedding! I wanted my wedding makeup to be natural but also look good for photos. Ashley gave me the exact look I wanted! Not only is Ashley talented and professional, she is really genuine and kind. I love her and her work! I highly recommend her. My wedding makeup was flawless and natural looking and the best part was that my makeup stayed that way until I took it off at 1:00am! My makeup withstood the tears, laughter, hugs, smooches, eating, drinking, dancing, and all the photo taking! I couldn't believe it when looked in the mirror when we finally got back to the hotel, it truly looked like my makeup had just been applied (I had her do airbrush makeup- airbrush makeup is amazing and the application process is so relaxing)! AMAZING! So needless to say, I highly recommend Ashley. Oh- also- Ashley provided makeup services for some of the ladies in my bridal party. Each of them had their own requests for their specific makeup style/look and all of them were also super happy with Ashley's work! I can't say enough about Ashley. You won't be disappointed she is a true artist!!!!!

We had an absolutely Outstanding experience with Rebecca Castro and her professional makeup team! I'd never utilized Thumbtack before and once I made my initial post in search of a makeup artist I'd heard from Rebecca fairly quickly. I was a bit hesitant about finding an artist out of my area but she is willing to travel for assignments and we are grateful she was available and willing to make the trip from Hollywood to Bakersfield. We needed a total of 5 "Day of the Dead" makeups done for a Halloween party and she and her team delivered! Rebecca is very professional. Excellent communication from booking to sitting and she has a tremendous eye for detail. Our group received numerous compliments on the quality of our makeups.throughout the night. We were very pleased with her service and will absolutely book with her again. If you want your makeup to look absolutely fantastic, select Rebecca as your artist! You will not be disappointed!

Adriana was very nice when she came over. But for some reason when I asked for the trial for my hair and make up, I was under the impression that I will get both on that day - hair and makeup. But Adriana only does make-up. So we still decided to do it. Since she drove so far to see us. I was looking for more of a natural look, but after the trial my face felt very caky and the foundation immediately got in the creases under my eyes and made me look older. And I didn't like how my eyes looked. My mother-in-law's makeup looked really good though. But we still decided do our makeup ourselves for my boho wedding. But I'm sure she is very good if you are looking for more of a dramatic look.

Julie met all my expectations and went beyond what was required by showing up to my appointment 30 minutes earlier (4:30 am). Julie has a very professional demeanor and is very attentive to details. Julie made my USC graduation pictures something to be admired for many years. Anyone seeking a great makeup service by a true professional should seek Julie's expertise.

Alyssa was wonderful. She was punctual, she knew what she was doing and she did a great job. I was worried that my hair style wouldn't stay since I don't have a lot of hair. She worked miracles and was able to get waves in my hair that looked great all through the evening event(she did my hair at 1:30) and into the following day. Her makeup was perfect! This was a bollywood party so we were wearing very blingy clothes. She was able to do the makeup without it looking like it was TOO much, and at the same time it was not too light. She did a little bit of a dramatic touch, but it was subtle. The makeup stayed late into the evening as well. She was punctual and gave really good value for the price. I hope to have Alyssa do our makeup again for our next event.

Paru did my makeup for my son's birthday party. She was kind enough to accommodate me into a very busy schedule. She arrived promptly to my house (which was a HUGE help with a little one at home) and applied the makeup during amicable conversation. When she finished and I looked in the mirror, I couldn't believe my eyes! She gave me the gorgeous soft glam look that I was hoping for, and made me feel 100% comfortable and beautiful! Everyone loved it, and the makeup lasted all day! She was so professional throughout the entire process, made me look (and feel) beautiful, and was also reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family and use her makeup services again if needed in the future. :)

My time with Victoria was amazing. She was friendly, professional, and responsive. Her makeup skills are awesome and she made me look beautiful. Not only did my skin look flawless and airbrushed, but my eye make up was perfect for the events I was attending. She did exactly the look I wanted on the first occasion and the second time I used her I asked her to pick a look, and wow she delivered ! Victoria can give you that holiday night time glam look as well as a soft daytime look which I love. I will definitely be using her services in the future!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
