Annaliza is amazing. She did my makeup for a wedding I was attending. She was on time, very professional and friendly. I don't usually trust my face to someone else (since I pretty much know how to do my own makeup). Also, I had never had my makeup done by Annaliza so I basically just took a risk and hoped she would make me look lovely. Also, I'm black and I was concerned that she may not have experience with black skin and that the foundation she would use would be the wrong shade (I've had tons of makeup artists who are basically clueless about makeup on women of color). Needless to say I had no reason to be concerned. I wanted a glam but natural look and she delivered. She made me look flawless, took into consideration the dress I was wearing and even suggested another shade of lipstick she thought would look better with the dress (I originally wanted red). Boy, was she right. The color she chose was perfect ans I never would have picked it for myself. She went the extra mile to leave me a sample so I could touch up my lipstick throughout the day. The interesting thing is that I never had to do that or touch up any of my makeup over a 12 hour period. I not only looked glam but also natural and that's not easy to pull off. Also, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that I actually fell asleep when she was doing my makeup. Finally, I never write reviews, but Annaliza surpassed my expectations so I decided to write one. Annaliza is plain simple, just fabulous. Next time I want my makeup done for an event I'm definitely calling her.

Finding and working with Frances for my wedding hair/makeup was a complete life-saver! She was extremely easy to communicate with, was well prepared, punctual, and determined to leave me with a look that I would be more than pleased with. Booking my consultation was a quick and painless phone call. She was mobile and came to my destination (for both consultation and day of). She made sure she was there early, ready for me to roll through at the last second as we were setting up. I absolutely LOVED my make up and ADORED my hairstyle for the night (which I had been worried about since I'm not blessed with amazingly plush hair. I received so many compliments on my hair!). Everything about the makeup/hair interaction went smooth and easy. Frances herself is funny, easy to understand and was so prepared that it helped keep me calm as it became closer and closer for the ceremony to begin and honestly, I can't thank her enough for that. I would absolutely book Frances for any event make-up/hair that I had in the upcoming future. Thank you, Frances! You made me look and feel like a beautiful lady on my big day!! (I'll try and update this with some pictures once I have them back from our photographer.)

Working with Julie was a total breeze, I would recommend her to anyone for makeup! I was searching for a makeup artist for the wedding and stumbled upon Julie's page. I am typically a very low-maintenance type, I don't typically wear makeup during the week, so I just wanted to look like an enhanced version of myself. And, budget friendly was a MUST! Upon first interaction with Julie, I was really amazed by her professionalism. She was ON IT. Count on prompt, detailed responses. She is very open and honest about her product and what my experience with her would be like. She has you fill out a consult form and send looks of makeup you'd like. I was really impressed by the detail- allergies, what your skin type is like, etc. She was also very conscious of my budget and worked with me for what I was looking for. Anyway, we did a trial for the engagement shoot, and spent some time going over looks and trying out shades that worked for my skin. Julie spent SO much focused time on me for my trial. We had a lot of fun working together as she is very easy to get along with. Julie's esthetician background influences her focus on skin. I love how she "pampers" the brides with a special mask before applying the makeup. It really makes your skin glow once all the makeup is done. I've never had my skin look so good! After seeing the engagement photos, I loved the natural look, but wanted a more dramatic look for the wedding. I trusted that she would nail it and she totally did. She made my eyes pop exactly how I wanted them to! I save the best two things for last: 1) We were at the wedding venue from 1:00 pm until 10 pm on an 85 degree day. I spent the entire night after dinner (about 6-10 pm) dancing. So imagine the toll that would take on my makeup. There was a photo taken of me right after and my makeup STILL looked in credible after all that sun and dancing! That was what really sold me on Julie. Not only is the initial product good, but it STAYED good the whole night despite the "wear and tear". That was my biggest "WOW" factor. 2) After the wedding... keep in mind this was well AFTER the wedding. I remembered "hey, Julie knows skincare, maybe she can give me some advice". I sent her a quick email asking about her favorite products and what my skin care goals were, and, in total Julie fashion, I get an incredibly helpful and detailed response for how to take care of my skin! Another big WOW. I couldn't believe how generous she was, even after my event was over. Julie is someone who really cares and is quick and happy to help. Could not recommend her more. Thank you, Julie, for making me look so fly on my special day!

I don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

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.

Samantha is an exceptional makeup artist who I've hired several times and will do so again in the future. I am a commercial producer and I've hired Samantha for shoots for eBay, Levis and others. Her work is top notch. She is always on time, hard working and delivers the look we are going for. She is a genuine and warm person who loves what she does and gets along with everyone. She has a great knack for connecting with her subjects on a personal level and if you've worked with her once, you'll want to do so again.

Brigitte is a fabulous Esthetician and Makeup Artist. She has been waxing my eye brows for over a year, and I truly look forward to going to see her. She is very professional, and has a soft touch and a great eye. She has also done airbrush makeup for me, and I was blown away by how beautiful it looked and how long it lasted. Brigitte provides great service, and is a valuable investment! You are sure to feel as pretty as I always do when Brigitte is done with you!

After the makeup artist I initially booked cancelled on me last minute, I was forced to turn to Thumbtack as I scrambled to find a last minute replacement. Luckily, Amanda answered my call. And since she was the first one to answer me, I rewarded her for it by booking her for the gig. The only hitch with Amanda was finding a place to do my makeup, as I wasn't going to be renting a hotel room due to only being in town for one day (not to mention I live within driving distance of San Francisco, so renting a hotel room for one day wouldn't have made any logistical sense). Luckily for us though, her friend allowed us to do my makeup at her studio. I even got to attend a party and drink an Orangina and get some snacks beforehand. This aside, the process went smoothly, and I was pleased with the end result. I even enjoyed the small talk Amanda and I made during the session. I was happy with the job she did, and I attended the charitable event I wanted the makeup done for with a pep in my step, blessed by the fact that I was made to look beautiful by Amanda Mutchie. I'd highly recommend booking her, and I might do so again in the future, provided I have the money and the time. Thanks again, Amanda.

I needed a last minute hair and makeup artist for our company event and I was so happy I found Lesley! Not knowing exactly how I wanted to look, she took the lead and created her work of art. She did an absolutely flawless job! She worked with my skin type, and easily blended the perfect color of foundation for my skin tone. She's super cool with a calming presence. I've received a lot of compliments about my look the entire night. I'd definitely recommend her!

Hiring someone to do my hair and makeup was something I have never done and I was definitely feeling out of my element. However with my stepdaughters wedding and the photos that would be done-I really wanted to go all out. "Emma" was very responsive to my messages and questions. I immediately felt comfortable. She arrived on time, had everything she needed with her and was an absolute delight to have in my home. She is a true professional and did a fabulous job. I got so many compliments at the wedding. If you want to go to an event/special occasion I strongly recommend hiring 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.
