My friend was having Mayra do her makeup for a business video, and I tagged along, and got my makeup done too (since it was my birthday). What a treat! Mayra made me look great--like myself but way better. She was (as others have said) super relaxed and personable. But she's also incredibly knowledgeable about makeup--about which products are best for your skin, about how to make you look like you're glowing from within (isn't that what we all want) and how to use makeup for different purposes (stage, film, a social event, business). Too many makeup artists are one trick ponies, who only do the kind of makeup they themselves wear--not Mayra. She really listens to her clients and helps them achieve their goals. From now on I plan to book Mayra for all of my speaking events and social events. I'm hoping she will still have time for me, since she's so in demand!

Rose was absolutely amazing! She did my wedding hair and makeup and did a fabulous job! She listened to and adjusted for my tastes and did an absolutely beautiful job. For my makeup she gave me amazing fake lashes that looks great and not overly fake. For my hair she put in extensions and did a great job creating a loose wave curl that lasted all night. I can't recommend Rose highly enough. She was also a blast to have around on the morning of my wedding.

Anne was fantastic. I've worked with almost a dozen makeup artists and she was most definitely the best. I showed her a picture of how I'd like my makeup and she did a phenomenal job so quickly. The makeup lasted all throughout the day and night and I received so many compliments. I will certainly be requesting her service again. If I could choose one word to describe her work- FLAWLESS!

Yvonne was a pleasure to work with. She did my wedding makeup & hair. She happily woke up early and arrived at the studio at 4:30am (and it was VERY far from where she lived) to help me prepare for a morning wedding. She took care of me and my bridal party completely. She did a perfect job on my makeup and hair (I was very particular about how I wanted my makeup to look, and she pulled it off). She covered up my skin problems flawlessly. She did a beautiful hairstyle (that we had discussed previously at the makeup trial - she replicated a style based only on a few pinterest photos). Yvonne is very professional and produces perfect results QUICKLY. She did all my makeup and hair styling in one and a half hour. She's very professional, and very honest about prices. She's also fun to work with. She's very punctual as well (as mentioned, she was early for a 4:30am appointment!!!) Above all, Yvonne made me feel comfortable, and I trusted her implicitly to make me feel beautiful during my wedding. I knew after the makeup & hair trial that I didn't need to worry or think about the makeup & hair at all... and I was right!

Not only is Nora a talented makeup artist and hair stylist, but she is very easy to talk to. I never felt awkward having a conversation with her and she really listened to what kind of look I had in mind. Although I just had my pre-trial with her, I definitely look forward to her doing my makeup on my wedding day for my bridal party and myself! I highly recommend Nora to anyone needing hair and makeup for any event.

Jasmene did my makeup for my wedding as well as my wedding parties. She also did my makeup for my maternity photos and made me feel my best when I wasn’t exactly feeling my best. 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!

Amy is absolutely incredible!! Not only is her work amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable and really cares about her clients. She is very flexible and easy to work with. Living in Denver, I only had a short amount of time that I would be in California for the wedding, and she worked with my schedule to make sure I got a trial before the day of my wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and she made sure she had plenty of time to get everyone's makeup done so we were ready on time! On top of that, she was very reasonably priced and worked within my budget. She also found me a hair stylist that fit in my budget as well! All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself loved our makeup and it lasted all night. Her makeup is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend hiring Amy as she is definitely one of the best makeup artists I have ever hired!

Oustanding service! From hiring to executing the day of my wedding. Julie was very attentive to my wants and needs during the planning stages, up to the day of my wedding and even after. She's very loving, caring and professional! She brought a team of make-up artists and hair dressers to where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready, and they did an outstanding job. All of my girls loved and RAVED about their hair and makeup. I'm so thankful for Julie and her team, they really made the process a breeze, was affordable and I will definitely use her services in the future. I highly recommend her and her team

The beautiful girl you see on Phi's thumbtack is my cousin. Phi did an amazing job making my wedding party look like they came straight out of a photo shoot for a magazine. Every bridesmaid looked so beautiful! Their hair and makeup was flawless. As I was planning for my wedding, I took everyone's advice and booked a salon professional to do my hair. Everyone told me since I was the bride, I should spend the money and make sure I had a "professional" do my hair. I went ahead and booked my regular hair stylist. Since she did such a great job cutting my hair for the last two years, I figured she'd do an amazing job with my hair for my wedding. She was so pricey I didn't book a pre run since she was going to charge me full price for her time. Since we had a good client and stylist relationship I went ahead and trusted she would be able to give me what I wanted. Little did I know styling and cutting are two completely different things. She did an okay job with my hair but I have to admit, for the amount I paid, I wasn't completely satisfied. I could tell as she was styling my hair she didn't really know how to pin the curls and it didn't look anything like the picture I brought in. While I was getting my hair done, Phi was busy working on my girls at my sister's house. I didn't get to see their beautiful faces until later on that morning. When I saw them for the first time, I couldn't believe how amazing they looked. Each brides maid had her hair done and make up in a way that complimented their personalities and style. My maid on honor was done up a bit more elaborate than my bridesmaids. My bridesmaids generally did not wear a lot of make up so their make up was very natural and stunning at the same time. To add some commonalities to each bridesmaid, Phi added a floral piece to everyone's hair. Everyone was able to sport a different look but had a similar flower that tied them together. I loved it all! Phi and I are still very close and I've told her numerously, the one regret I have was not hiring her to be my stylist. She did such an amazing job and I love looking at her work on all her new clients. She's so easy to work with and delivers great work and service! Since my wedding she has grown as an artist and I am so grateful to have had an opportunity for her to be a part of my special day!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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 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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
