Wow! From the very beginning, Sara was super helpful in all aspects. She and her assistants did an amazing job with hair and makeup for 11 women on my wedding day. Everyone raved about how nice, sweet, understanding and talented they were. Sara knew exactly what to say to help relieve some of my stress of normal wedding day shenanigans. I could not have been happier. Thank you so much Sara!

I can't say enough good things about Steph!! I hired her to do our hair and makeup for my wedding. We don't live in California so we didn't get to do a practice run but it didn't matter, I was thrilled with the results! I interacted with several hair and makeup professionals but from the start, Steph was the most professional and most on-top of everything. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup, and it lasted all night. She was able to take our ideas, offer some advice and get us the look we wanted. Hire her! She will make you feel beautiful and special!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

Never have I felt so beautiful in my life. When Julie handed me the mirror after she was done with my makeup I wanted to cry. But, I new better because I did I would ruin my makeup. She did my makeup for my wedding and I felt like a queen. My makeup was flawless and looked like it was airbrushed which it wasn't. She has a light had and so much talent. I wouldn't go to anyone but her if I needed makeup done in the future. Julie you're the best!

Kim was quick to reply to the makeup lesson request and had some great ideas. We hired her for a how to makeup lesson. My bestie and I had an amazing experience with Kim. She showed us how but made us do it. By using that approach we actually learned how to use all kinds of helpful techniques! We now know how to use our tools and makeup to make our best look. We highly recommend Kim for any makeup needs you may have. She’s funny and so genuinely kind.

Alla did my makeup on a couple of occasions. Once for my friends’ wedding and another a personal photo shoot. She was very friendly and made me look beautiful, I was getting compliments all over. She is also very gentle and soft to the touch, careful in her work and takes in count all your wishes. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who appreciates amazing skill combined with great personality.

Blue was amazing! We first met when he came to do my makeup for my bridal shower. And after that it was history! Haha I was hooked! I knew he was extremely talented about 5 minutes into us meeting. I instantly knew he would be perfect to do my makeup for my bachelorette and wedding. So 2 months later he was on a flight to Cabo for my wedding! Best decision ever! He was awesome and totally rocked it. He did my makeup as well as 6 of my bridesmaids, my aunt and mother in law. I loved everyone's look. He made my special day becoming a bride so incredible! He is my go to from here on out!

Cindy was able to drive out to my house, arrived on time and with a great attitude to do my make up for graduation. Not only was she professional throughout the entire time, but she communicated what she envisioned for my make up and made sure that i felt comfortable and was pleased with the outcome. I love that she really focused on highlighting and extenuating my facial features with her work. She did especially amazing with facial coverage, eyebrows, and making sure my makeup blended well so as to not look “cakey”. I definitely recommend her!

    Amazing work on my hair and makeup. I’m EXTREMELY picky And very particular about how other people do my hair and make up. Often times I don’t like people to do it for me and I like to just do it myself but I trust Meztli to do it just the way I ask. Give her a shot you won’t be disappointed!

    Mary was super attentive to detail and I was amazed by her work! I normally don’t wear makeup whatsoever and Mary made sure she listened to my concerns (I didn’t want to look cakey!) My makeup looked natural but appropriate for my event! (Prom) I also didn’t know what I was looking for, but I’m glad Mary was so creative! I got soooooo many compliments from my friends at prom and my makeup lasted UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. I will definitely refer Touch of Radiance to everyone I know and will SO book again if I need to!

      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.
