For Indian brides, mendhi (henna) is one of the most important elements of the bridal look. After the henna artist I had previously booked to do my bridal mendhi cancelled on me only three days before my appointment, I scrambled to find another professional online. Thankfully, thumbtack had several choices available, and luckily I picked the right one! Dhara had competitive rates and furnished multiple samples of her work when I asked for them. She was punctual and has a very sweet demeanor. She was able to recreate a very intricate look I had pinned on Pinterest for my feet and lower legs, and created a custom look for my hands and arms based on my peacock themed wedding. She also created simpler custom looks for some of bridesmaids and friends, complete with glitter accents for extra glitz. I was so impressed with her work that I hired her for my Sangeet too, where she spent a few hours doing mendhi for my guests, adding to the festive atmosphere. I have already recommended her to a couple of friends that are getting married later this year, and definitely recommend her to fellow thumbtack users.

I hired Ashley as my makeup artist for my wedding and I am sincerely happy I did! I recieved so many compliments about my makeup, including my photographer. I wanted airbrush makeup with dramatic eyes and soft lips and that is exactly what she gave me! I was thoroughly impressed with how well prepared she was. She also did my matron of honors makeup last minute and she looked gorgeous! Ashley is very professional and has an amazing personality! I can't wait for her to do my makeup again for future events. I HIGHLY recommend Ashley Baclesse!

Thank you Priscylla for all of your hard work at our wedding. She did hair and makeup for 6 bridesmaids, bridal hair/makeup, and mother of the bride. We had a couple of small delays (mostly on our end) but everything turned out beautiful. I felt she was professional, reasonable in price, and was able to make us all look wonderful!

Natalie was the Wedding Artistry Makeup & hair for a total of 8 girls. This was for a sweet sixteen in Eastvale. She completed the job in 4:30 hours. She arrived on time, was very professional and understood our vision. All girls were happy with their hair and makeup. She went above and beyond to try to meet everyone's expectations, without sacrificing the quality of her work. Will definitely work with her again.

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.

I don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

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.

I am soooo late writing this - about a year! I hired Hienny for my wedding last April 1, 2017 Hienny was great to work with and really understood my vision. She came to my home for my hair and makeup trial, which I did befrore my engagement photos. She also put together a team for the day of the wedding to do hair and makeup for my whole bridal party - 9 bridesmaids and my mother and I. It was certainly a circus with a few tiny timing hiccups - but considering the sheer workload we were all very happy! Everyone looked beautiful! I definitely recommend her - she's easy to talk to and understands all the latest trends and has a well stocked kit. Now that I have moved to Newport Beach and closer to her I will be calling her for events! I'l try to uplaod a few photos if the sizing will alow me. Thanks again Hienny!

Amanda did an incredible job on my bridal make up and makeup for my mother and bridal party. Amanda was super detail oriented and asked all of the right questions. Everyone was extremely happy with the results and had just what they wanted! I loved the products she used, especially the airbrush foundation. My makeup lasted all night :) Amanda is super talented and a joy to work with. She spent a lot of time with me during my trial to achieve the perfect look for my wedding day. I would recommend her to anyone I know looking for bridal makeup. Thank you Amanda!!

Samantha is an exceptional makeup artist who I've hired several times and will do so again in the future. I am a commercial producer and I've hired Samantha for shoots for eBay, Levis and others. Her work is top notch. She is always on time, hard working and delivers the look we are going for. She is a genuine and warm person who loves what she does and gets along with everyone. She has a great knack for connecting with her subjects on a personal level and if you've worked with her once, you'll want to do so again.

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long does a henna tattoo stay on?

Typically a henna tattoo stays on anywhere from one to three weeks. Henna artists work with henna paste, also called mehndi, which dyes the skin for a short period of time. An important part of Indian culture, the use of henna has become increasingly popular in the United States, with henna artists providing henna tattoos for weddings, as event entertainment and for other special events. Henna artists typically apply their designs to the palms and backs of the hands, the wrists, up to the elbows, and from the feet up to the knees. To preserve the rich color of your henna tattoo and help it set, avoid water as much as possible within the first 24 hours of application. The color will be richest during the first week. Brides may want to have their henna tattoos applied one or two days before the wedding for optimal results.

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.

What is the meaning behind henna tattoos?

Henna tattoos, as they are called in the United States, have a long tradition in Indian, African and Middle Eastern cultures. For centuries, the leaves of dried henna plants have been ground into a fine paste to be used as a temporary and nontoxic skin dye. This form of body decoration has been used in celebrations, weddings and ceremonial rites of passage in many cultures. Often in Hindu weddings, henna artists decorate the hands and feet of the bride (and at times the groom) with intricate designs. In some Muslim traditions, henna artists paint women with henna designs as they are in their final stages of pregnancy. In the United States, popular culture has adopted this beautiful body art and henna artists provide brides (and sometimes grooms) with temporary henna tattoos. Henna artists are also a popular choice for entertainment at corporate events, birthday parties, bachelorette parties and festivals. Henna artists may charge anywhere from $10 to $300 per hour.
