I would highly recommend Lily for makeup! She did my prom makeup and I loved it. She aked questions about what I would like often. She also did my hair and I loved how it turned out. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and the hairstyle didn't quite follow the picture but it still looked great! She was even willing to redo it when I asked her to change a little something. Lily was kind and helpful!

I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

Steph is amazing! She made me look so beautiful on my wedding day. She was very easy to work with and she really listened to me and what I wanted my bridal makeup and hair to look like. The look was executed perfectly! She and her assistant were able to get me and 6 girls hair and make up done in on time and on budget. All my girls looked so beautiful too! I would highly recommend Steph for any event!

Phoebe provided excellent service to my mother in law and myself. She did our hair and makeup for a wedding we were attending in Carlsbad. She was kind enough to come to the hotel we were staying at, at a reasonable fee. She addressed some makeup allergy concerns that I had and made sure to avoid them at all cost. Because of her gorgeous work, everyone at the wedding complimented us on how gorgeous we were. Thank you Phoebe!! We definitely know who we are calling when we having weddings to attend to in SoCal.

Never have I felt so beautiful in my life. When Julie handed me the mirror after she was done with my makeup I wanted to cry. But, I new better because I did I would ruin my makeup. She did my makeup for my wedding and I felt like a queen. My makeup was flawless and looked like it was airbrushed which it wasn't. She has a light had and so much talent. I wouldn't go to anyone but her if I needed makeup done in the future. Julie you're the best!

I got the pleasure to meet Janee when I asked her to do my makeup for my wedding in June of this year. She came to my house to do a trial first a few months before and we clicked instantly. Her personality is contagious and her talent is unbelieve. Her choice of colors and her ability to know what to use and not to use per my skin color is amazing. She showed up 4 hours before I actually walked down the isle and seriously did not breath the entire time making sure my whole wedding party had makeup and it was done to her standards. My many meltdowns right before I walked was also not an issue as she was right next to me with her qtip, lipstick, and eye liner the entire time. Janee has a passion for what she does and it showed the entire time I got to have her for my wedding. I can't recommend her enough and I know nobody will be disappointed when they contact her for any special occasion they need makeup for.

We have used Kim and her makeup and her styling skills on many occasions for video production TV commercials. I have also referred Kim to my family and friends who may be looking for a makeup artist for their wedding. Kim will be on time, give you excellent service and give you what you want! If you want the best, no need to look further!

Emily has been my hair stylist for four years. She is amazing! My cut and color is always better than what I envision. It is so clear that Emily is passionate about beauty and looking/feeling your best. She has always taken time to consult about what I am looking for in each appointment. Emily is great at what she does and I will keep going back to her. Emily also did my makeup and hair for my wedding and did a fabulous job. I felt gorgeous!

Cindy was able to drive out to my house, arrived on time and with a great attitude to do my make up for graduation. Not only was she professional throughout the entire time, but she communicated what she envisioned for my make up and made sure that i felt comfortable and was pleased with the outcome. I love that she really focused on highlighting and extenuating my facial features with her work. She did especially amazing with facial coverage, eyebrows, and making sure my makeup blended well so as to not look “cakey”. I definitely recommend her!

Mary was super attentive to detail and I was amazed by her work! I normally don’t wear makeup whatsoever and Mary made sure she listened to my concerns (I didn’t want to look cakey!) My makeup looked natural but appropriate for my event! (Prom) I also didn’t know what I was looking for, but I’m glad Mary was so creative! I got soooooo many compliments from my friends at prom and my makeup lasted UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. I will definitely refer Touch of Radiance to everyone I know and will SO book again if I need to!

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.
