Among st all of the wedding planning, I think finding a trustworthy and flexible hair and makeup artist is one of the hardest and most important items to find! After all, their work is what will live in ALL of your photos, videos, and family and friends memories! I found Mayra through Thumbtack at Make it Happen! From the start, Mayra was awesome. Very prompt to respond to questions, gave advice on ideas, and super accommodating to the changing # of women needing services. Her and Lluvia (hair) graciously were able to fit in one of my bridesmaids who initially did not want services until the day of and also my mom. What a relief! The trial was also a blast. We got to experiment with different ideas and also get to know their style. They are both so friendly, fun to be around, educational, and professional. I think the most impressive thing about both Mayra and Lluvia is their attention to detail. Mayra truly makes a canvas out of your face and applies makeup so diligently and meticulously. She blends the perfect shades for your complexion and genuinely considers what you like and do not like. She is also very inquisitive about what you like and do not like so she clearly understands what and how to apply your vision. Often times you show hair and makeup artists a pic and they can rarely match it - in this case they both matched the elements of the pics I was after that best fit my look and style. Every single one of my guests was blown away at their work and many of my engaged friends are now asking for their services. I am so thrilled for our pics!! Thanks again Mayra!

Chantelle provided wedding makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother. She did an amazing job making everyone look absolutely gorgeous and yet still natural and like themselves. My makeup stayed beautiful all night long -- after 12 hours, when I got home at the end of the night, it still looked incredible! She's also great fun to be around: chatty, funny, sweet, and just a beacon of light. She's exactly the kind of person you want around on your wedding day (or any day) to help you laugh and stay calm. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, have already recommended her to one friend, and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a makeup artist!

I have to say it was my first time looking for a makeup artist on the internet and I was worried I would be disappointed . To my surprise and pleasure, Teresa was a blessing . I hired her for a Quincenera I was attending and she was so professional and caring . I felt like a friend who really cared about how i looked and felt was helping eat ready . I am a stay at home mom and I wanted to feel amazing that day and she did just that. her work is not only perfection but she really cares about how you want to look and feel . a great artist . Thanks again and I am looking forward to our next event . ..

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!

Liv came to my rescue when I found out my makeup artist/hair doesn’t do my engagement trial during weekend. Not only she was available but she gave me such a great affordable price for trial and wedding. She also gave us discount for eye lashes! I knew she didn’t have to do that. She always responsive when I have questions. She listens to my ideas/wants. She doesn’t pressure me with anything. She has a fun personable personality which is easy to talk to and get along with. I definitely will recommend her to people and will hire for future special occasions.

Amanda did a great job on my wedding makeup. She did my entire bridal party as well as my mom. Everything turned out perfect and she really made everyone look their best. She does not do overly heavy makeup, instead she brings out everyones most beautiful qualities. She uses high-end products, which we all loved. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a makeup artist for any occasion. I already can't wait to for her to do my makeup again.

Farrah was amazing to work with, I hired her to provide hair styling on a photoshoot and Farrah was a joy to have around. As a makeup artist in the community, I can vouch that Farrah is trustworthy, cares about the clients needs and is extremely professional. The hair styling was beautiful, and the guest was blown away with Farrah's talent. Would work with her again.

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!!!

Adrianne is the best! She really is so sweet and really takes the time to understand what her client wants. When she did my makeup for my engagement shoot, we discussed thoroughly what I wanted and as she did my makeup, she would stop to ask if I wanted more or less. Her attention to detail and also to what I wanted was something that you cannot find in my makeup artists. I would definitely hire Adrianne again for any of my makeup needs! The final look was exactly what I wanted while still looking natural - Adrianne did exactly what I was hoping for! Thank you, girl - you're the best!

Working with Stephanie was truly amazing. She was super friendly, accommodating, and really skilled in her art. She did my wedding make up for my myself, my maid of honor, my mom, and my sister, able to capture exactly what we wanted - glam and boho all at the same time. She also did really well with my mom's more natural makeup and my sisters more "junior bridesmaid" version. She also did our make up trial at our home, and made the entire experience dare I say fun and relaxing! I cannot recommend her enough! I all be for sure referring her to all my friends getting married or having special occasions. She also went above and beyond, staying for my ceremony so we can all have touch ups before the reception. Full service with a smile, lots of laughs, amazing work, and making everyone feel like their best selves - all for a great value! Everyone without a doubt loved their hair and makeup! Once I get back from my honeymoon, I will definitely have a make up lesson or two. I wasn't able to get great photos but she has some of our event on her instagram. You will not regret working with Stephanie!

Jelise was AMAZING! She is a sweetheart and did a great job with my makeup for a video shoot that I did with my band! I am hiring her again for our next video shoot because of how great of a makeup artist and person she is. She was punctual, nice, did a great job for my hair and makeup, and was even talkative (in a good way so there were no awkward silences)! We were happy with her work. Jelise, you are awesome!

I had a 1920's party to attend and it was was costume required. I am not good with doing my own hair and makeup. I contacted Glamourmaid Cosmetic Artistry Consultant Tasha for help. She replied immediately! I left all makeup and hair decision making to her. I absolutely loved the final product! I felt so beautiful. Tasha is very focused while doing her job, she was on time, researched what she wanted to do with my makeup and hair. I look forward to working with her in the future and will recommend her services.

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.
