I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

I am so happy to have found Julie as my makeup artist. If there was one thing I was really stressed about for my wedding it was the makeup. I wanted to look like me and not a cakey overdone mess. I was so worried about it that I made up my mind, after already acquiring quotes which included Julie, that I would do my own makeup even though I knew that would stress me out even more. But my bridesmaids still wanted there makeup done so I went on the hunt again and luckily Julie was still available. I set up a consultation with Julie and told her the change of plans that it would be for my bridesmaids only and after seeing her work on my sister who very rarely wears makeup I was so impressed and excited that I changed my mind once again. I absolutely loved loved loved my makeup I was so happy to look like myself but just a little more glam haha. I felt comfortable and confident. She was so sweet and flexible especially at the end when we had to add more girls and some wanted specifics. Her and her assistant were so great and I would definitely definitely recommend and book Julie again. :)

Amazing Service. We had a theme for our party and the entertainer came dressed in a fairy costume with full makeup as well. She created beautiful face painting images for the children as well as twisting balloons. she arrived in time and had all the supplies ready to go as well as whimsical music to hear in the background! Would highly recommend for any children's party! Kids loved her!

Amazing falls short of a description for my experience with Maribel. Not only did she make me feel comfortable in her work setting but she actually took the time to listen to what it was I wanted of my makeup and followed through with it- something I have struggled with in the past with other make up artists. My makeup looked flawless and lasted all night! Thank you Maribel for your professionalism and the amazing experience. I look forward to seeing you in May =)

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

I was on short notice to find a Makeup Artist who also did hair. I was looking for someone to do both for my good friends wedding in which i was a bridesmaid. I was very impressed with Irene's work after viewing her pictures. She was quick to reply and also reply back quick once I gave her a picture of the dress. She knew right away the perfect eye shadows that would go perfect. The aftermath was very impressive. I loved her work and would hire her again for any future events! :)

Samantha did my makeup for my wedding and I LOVE IT!!!! She was very sweet and did a great job. I like a more natural looking makeup. I'm very picky when it comes to let someone do my makeup because they always apply a lot of product and I feel like I have a mask on. but Samantha did it just right, no too excessively. she exceeded my expectations 👍👍👍

    Dre was the best thing that ever happend to me in my incessant search for a makeup artist for my wedding 9/2017. The first session she spent over 2 hours perfecting the look I wanted, constantly adjusting according to my needs, not what she felt was best. I truly appreciated this about her since I had bad experiences with other artists before her. She was incredibly warm, kind, friendly, accomodating and most importantly exceptionally talented! She did a wonderful job with not just my make up but that of my bridesmaids as well, all in a timely fashion for a very reasonable price. My bridesmaids were so happy and couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful they felt :) I am sure they will be hiring her for their weddings! I hope to continue to visit Dre to work her magic for other events. I would recommend her to anybody for any of your makeup needs! Thank you, thank you, thabk you!

    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.
