Recently I just had a wedding and was privileged to have Mayra and her team be in charge of my moms' as well as my hair and makeup. Mayra did an AMAZING job. When people saw me on that day, they all aspired for taking photos with me. I looked amazing in the photos---I don't normally do, but with the makeup on, I looked superb --- and the moms looked amazing in them. My mom got so many compliments from her coworkers; it was very exciting for her. My makeup stayed on with no trouble all day long, and was told that I need no retouch since Mayra uses high-quality makeup. My mom and I loved her work and would like to stay in touch with her for future events, and possibly makeup lessons! Mayra was amiable and helpful the whole way through. I didn't know much about makeup products or the techniques of applying makeup. She taught me tricks and basics as she was doing my makeup during my bridal consultation, and she answered all the questions I asked. She was attentive to details and needs, accommodated to clients' preference but also provided professional opinion. She was both very knowledgeable and well-equipped, and she can handle all skin type and skin color. I had a wonderful experience and I think having known her was a wonderful gift. I would definitely recommend her!

I worked with StyleBee for hair and makeup services for myself and my bridal party and was beyond satisfied! Stylists were professional, friendly, accommodating, and overall contributed to a positive wedding day experience! I received many compliments, especially on my hair. And the ease of the stylists coming to us, rather than going as a group to a salon, cannot be overstated.

Super professional, super friendly, applied makeup to 11 children. As a producer, when a department is "seen and not heard" that means they are doing their job incredibly well. Would definitely hire again.

Vinnia did my makeup for my wedding and I was so impressed. She was responsive, friendly, and did such a great job. I really appreciated that she came to my place for the trial a month before, and then traveled to my wedding and was right on time. She made me look like Marilyn Monroe (as my mom kept saying haha), and then even did a complimentary hair and eyelash touchup for my mom when she was done with me. I couldn't be happier. Hire her for sure!!!!

I absolutely couldn't have been happier working with Susan and the Jireh Artistry team. I felt like I was a little late to booking my hair and makeup team, one of the last vendors I secured for the my May 2017 wedding. This was the first time I used Thumbtack and to be honest was a little nervous, because I was worried that the net they casted to reach various vendors was very wide. Susan responded to my inquiry quickly and our back and forth was very professional and easy. She was very accommodating for the trial and I was so happy with how she worked my hairdo. I provided a couple of pictures and she put her own twist on it. Fast forward a few months to wedding day. The team was there on time and setup quickly to stay on schedule, actually ahead of it. There were a total of 15 services (hair and makeup) and we were timed perfectly. Everyone from my bridesmaid to my mom to myself were so happy with the work. The team was warm and easy to talk with. It is such a long chunk of time to be with people on such an important day and no one felt like strangers. Seriously so warm and fun. I consider this such a thumbtack success story. I would recommend Jireh Artistry to anyone who needs hair and makeup services. I honestly felt so confident all day. I normally never wear my hair up and usually am so self conscious when I do, but never second guessed my decision all day and felt like I only needed to apply lipstick, really no touchups. Thanks again for being a part of the most memorable day.

Jennifer did a great job on my makeup for my wedding day! She was right on time and did both my makeup and my sister's (maid of honour's makeup). I hired her at the very last minute and she was able to accommodate me and made me look gorgeous for the big day. I gave her a few looks and she chose well out of the looks that I provided. Thanks, Jennifer!

The only problem you have when Audra does your makeup is you never want to wash your face again!!!! She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional but she also was very educational and didn't mind answering all my questions about products and how to's. And her kit is immaculate!!!!!! In a perfect world Audra would be the only person that ever did my makeup! She is by far the best makeup artist I have ever worked with!!!

I’ve received tons of compliments on my makeup and photos thanks to Jasmene’s listening ear to hear what her customer wants and be able to actually execute the look. Thank you!

Alexaly was amazing!!! She was super sweet and so fun to work with. She is passionate about makeup and was very professional, showing up exactly on time to my place. I had her do my makeup for Outside Lands Music Festival and she made me look beautiful! I don't normally wear a lot of makeup, and she did a great job of bringing out my features in a natural way. I got a lot of compliments on my makeup that day and I will definitely be using her services again in the future!

I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.

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.
