We had Annaliza do the makeup for our model for an activewear photoshoot. She did an amazing job and even touched up our male model. She even stayed on site during the whole shoot in the cold to touch them up and she was a pleasure to chat with. The makeup looked even better once we reviewed the shots! She's someone I really want to work with again. Amazing job and very sweet!

I requested Sabrina to do my makeup for my wedding, I do not wear makeup at all and didn't really know what to expect but I knew what and how I wanted to look. She was very professional she was on time. She came in setup and didn't waste time. She did three people in a little over 2 hours. We were all women of color and she match our skin tone beautifully! Every one loved our make up and lashes. Thank you for making my day that much more special.

I hired Ashley for my October 5th wedding. She did an amazing job! We did a trial ahead of time and she came to my place. She arrived on time and was so friendly. I immediately felt comfortable. Then once I saw my makeup I knew I found my makeup artist for my wedding! I wanted my wedding makeup to be natural but also look good for photos. Ashley gave me the exact look I wanted! Not only is Ashley talented and professional, she is really genuine and kind. I love her and her work! I highly recommend her. My wedding makeup was flawless and natural looking and the best part was that my makeup stayed that way until I took it off at 1:00am! My makeup withstood the tears, laughter, hugs, smooches, eating, drinking, dancing, and all the photo taking! I couldn't believe it when looked in the mirror when we finally got back to the hotel, it truly looked like my makeup had just been applied (I had her do airbrush makeup- airbrush makeup is amazing and the application process is so relaxing)! AMAZING! So needless to say, I highly recommend Ashley. Oh- also- Ashley provided makeup services for some of the ladies in my bridal party. Each of them had their own requests for their specific makeup style/look and all of them were also super happy with Ashley's work! I can't say enough about Ashley. You won't be disappointed she is a true artist!!!!!

Priscylla was absolutely terrific! She was beyond professional, very responsive and extremely attentive to my specific requests with regard to my hair & makeup needs ... and wanted to be absolutely certain I was pleased with the results. I would definitely use her again when I am in California and have already recommended her to my sister in law in Burbank.

Julie met all my expectations and went beyond what was required by showing up to my appointment 30 minutes earlier (4:30 am). Julie has a very professional demeanor and is very attentive to details. Julie made my USC graduation pictures something to be admired for many years. Anyone seeking a great makeup service by a true professional should seek Julie's expertise.

I hired Ruba to do my makeup for a photoshoot and we met for the trial makeup to get an idea of what look I wanted to go with, she was AMAZING. The makeup looked stunning and I'm soooo excited for the photoshoot! She listened to what I wanted and made her own suggestions as the professional. Hire Makeup by RUBA, you will not be disappointed. The makeup was high quality and I am very satisfied.

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.

We needed someone to do stage makeup for my 15 year old and MissO was perfect! She made my daughter look stage ready without the "caked on" look; on the contrary the makeup looked quite natural. She's very professional, friendly and talented and her price point is reasonable. I'd definitely recommend her and am looking forward to hiring her again soon for our family photo shoot.

Jessica and her assistant arrived on time with a light and all the tools. The reason for 4 stars is for the hair and having to tone down the makeup. The initial makeup was WAY too dark but Jessica toned it down and gave me a look a liked. However, the hair was curled towards the face in the front and the back was very messy. I ended up redo'ing the front sections of the hair after they left.

Paru did my makeup for my son's birthday party. She was kind enough to accommodate me into a very busy schedule. She arrived promptly to my house (which was a HUGE help with a little one at home) and applied the makeup during amicable conversation. When she finished and I looked in the mirror, I couldn't believe my eyes! She gave me the gorgeous soft glam look that I was hoping for, and made me feel 100% comfortable and beautiful! Everyone loved it, and the makeup lasted all day! She was so professional throughout the entire process, made me look (and feel) beautiful, and was also reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family and use her makeup services again if needed in the future. :)

Kim did mine and my daughters hair & makeup for my daughters 15th birthday party. She had all ready done a trial makeup prior and I love that she was able to give her a natural look since my daughter doesn’t wear makeup. The day of the actual event both our makeups were intact until it was time to wash our face. I was expecting to look a mess after having danced and gotten sweaty but that didn't happen... I can’t wait to have another chance to hire Kim. Thank you so much for your amazing work!!

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.
