Julie was way more than I could've asked for in a wedding makeup artist. All of my bridesmaids looked amazing as she made sure to put in 110% for each of them. Punctuality is a must on a special day and she took all of that into account. This won't be the last time I use her services or refer clients in need. Thank you Julie you were nothing short of AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Absolutely loved Pryscilla!! She did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. Everyone thought I looked stunning, which couldn't have happened without her. She was also extremely helpful, even at the wedding during our photo shoot! She made sure I was satisfied with everything and made any adjustments I wanted with no problem. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thanks Pryscilla!! 😁

Just excellent! I did a trial for my wedding with Zorahayda and absolutely loved the result! She did my makeup and hair for my wedding and she and her team also did hair and makeup for my sister, mother and mother-in-law. The final result was simply stunning!!! I was incredibly happy - everyone looked absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend her - she is professional, easy to work with and most importantly talented!

When you know you know...and as soon as Iztel did my makeup for a wedding, I knew then was my go to! I love the time she takes to be perfect and precise! Everyone gives me compliments on hair make-up....and especially on the way my eyebrows are shaped! So far, Iztel has done my nails and hair and makeup for special occasions and she will continue to be my #1 choice next to none!

I needed a make up artist and hair stylist last December 23, 2016 for a family photo shoot and found Careli. I'm glad I did, she's great! I love my hair and makeup and it came out really nice on the photos. She took her time and listened to what I wanted. Careli is a new make up artist and definitely will be successful in the industry. She's also responsive on my text and emails so communication was not a problem. The only negative comment I have was that she was half an hour late to my appointment. Apparently, she could not find the La Quinta Resort & Club which is a big surprise as she is from the area. I would have given her a 5-star if she was on time. Anyhow, will definitely hire her again if I'm in the PS area.

Liz is my go-to makeup (and hair!) artist for all of my photoshoots! As a personal branding expert, I provide my clients with visual marketing strategy and a custom photoshoot. As soon as I started working with Liz over a year ago, I noticed a big difference in how my clients looked and felt during their shoots. They don't have to worry about how they look and they feel like a polished up version of themselves, which is key to their authentic representation in images. Liz provides a range of looks based on each person's unique style, and always brings out the best in each person. She's a master at matching skin tones and covering up blemishes while ensuring the right amount of coverage for a flawless finish -- this saves so much editing time! She is professional and makes my clients feel at ease, which is essential because they are going to have their photos taken. I highly recommend Liz for all of your makeup needs -- professional photos, wedding, special events, or just for some pampering and a confidence boost.

Usually I do my own makeup for events and such, but for my wedding I didn’t want to worry about a thing. Typically I don’t trust people to do my makeup, but Cynthia was AWESOME. She listened to my every detail, and was more than happy to work with me in any change I wanted to make (which weren’t many because she did a great job the first time). But even small details like “a little more glue for my lashes” etc, she was willing to do. And I really appreciated that I never felt like a burden to her. She was reliable, punctual, super friendly, and did quality work. I would absolutely recommend her.

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.
