I traveled down from the Bay as my son’s wedding was over the weekend. My physical limitations keep me fairly unable to easily get around for even the easiest of errands. So, I was very happy to have found Jackie and her readiness to travel to me, with all of her equipment and bags of makeup cases, and bright studio type light, etc. Jackie was very timely and spent as much time as was needed with me. She brought specialty items to help with a current/temporary puffy eye issue I’ve had. I could not have been happier with Jackie’s services. She did my makeup impeccably and really listened and heard my concerns with how I envisioned it as well as concerns I’d had from a past occurance elsewhere with the makeup being far too bold. As well, my makeup lasted from the morning when applied, absolutely perfectly with no touch-ups needed, thru to the complete end of night (including the after party at my hotel past midnight!). I’ve never had my makeup last without needing to touch-up now and again throughout the day/night. The next time I’m in need for an event I’ll hope hope hope Jackie is available!!

Jennifer did my makeup for a wedding that I was a matron-of-honor in. I was going for a "Great Gatsby" & with finger-wave styled hair, I needed makeup that would stand out. Jennifer not only transformed my drab new-mom face, the makeup held up through 8+ hours of 100 degree Central Valley Heat, countless family hugs & numerous anti-shine sheet dabs. I am so glad I didn't go to MAC, where I would have had to purchase $50 worth of makeup I would never wear again. Jenn made me look like a Rock Star!

Veronica's makeup quality in my opinion cannot be, and wasn't (from my other trials) beat. She works with you to make sure you are completely satisfied, and goes through what she's using and why. And maybe to others who do their makeup for themselves most days, it would seem redundant I suppose, but to someone like me who had no experience I was really glad I got to understand everything that was being put on my face. And even if you did have experience it's still nice to know, just in case you have allergies, sensitivity, (etc.). If you want someone who honestly takes the time to work with your skin type, is a blast to be around, and has you leaving there feeling beautiful, then Veronica is your gal. Also, I am grateful she was able to help with my hair. I will be using her again for formal, prom, anything really!

Christina is amazingly talented! We hired her on our feature film Caretakers and she was able to produce high quality spfx makeup quickly and replicate the effect consistently. She is great at recreating scars, cuts, burns, and all kinds of gore. Also she was able to make our actors look like they’d just been balling their eyes out. There’s nothing she can’t do!

My business stands out because it’s really all about the makeup. Whatever you’re wanting to accomplish for example a full face for an event or a makeup lesson on how to get the perfect brows you’re walking away with product and feeling confident in how to use those products. I am a full time Impulse Beauty Counter Manager at Macy’s which allows me to “freelance” for makeup. It’s an area that is fun and exciting, an area that I have many different products to choose from for every skin type and color. Instead of paying for one nights of makeup, you’ll book an appointment with me at Macy’s and get your makeup done with a $50 minimum purchase of products that best work for you. I apologize for the quality of my pictures as they don’t showcase my work, please head over to my Instagram account for better quality and more pictures of my work!

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.
