We hired Julie for one of our commercial video shoots less than a week before production was slated to begin, and she was a consummate professional who everyone on the set loved working with. She showed up on time with a high-end professional setup and, most importantly, gave all of our talent for the day the perfect looks that we were going for and in a very efficient timeframe. I plan on soliciting Julie's services for any project we have in the future that requires makeup/styling and would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a commercial-grade makeup artist.

I wish I could give her 6 stars because she absolutely deserves them! Janay was amazing!!! I seriously cannot give her enough praise. All my girls, my mom and I looked absolutely stunning! Everything from the trial to the wedding day makeup was perfect. She made sure to stop and show us her progress to make sure it was what we wanted and made adjustments if necessary. Although she got everything just perfect so really there was no adjusting that needed to be made. She even kindly offered to help some girls that weren't even getting their make up done by her. Janay is really friendly and easy going and has a great personality which made having her as my makeup artist such a pleasant experience. Her assistant also did a great job. I would definitely recommend her and hire her again! Thank you, Janay!

Jessica and her assistant arrived on time with a light and all the tools. The reason for 4 stars is for the hair and having to tone down the makeup. The initial makeup was WAY too dark but Jessica toned it down and gave me a look a liked. However, the hair was curled towards the face in the front and the back was very messy. I ended up redo'ing the front sections of the hair after they left.

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 so happy with my makeup. Everyone said how gorgeous it looked. Some of the pictures I showed as examples of what I wanted were really bold but she made me look perfectly "done up" rather than overdone or clownish

Ellie was great! Very professional; I do not normally wear a lot of make-up and everyone said I should have it done professionally, so I found Ellie. She listened to my concerns and more importantly she gave me exactly what I wanted. I just got my wedding video and I cannot believe how great my makeup and skin looks! Ellie was very affordable, she came to my venue and made me look and feel beautiful! I would definitely recommend her and I will be using her again the next time I have a special event to go to because her make-up rocked!

I loved my make up. I was getting so many compliments and asked where did I get my make up done. She knew exactly what I wanted. She has great customer service and she's up to date with all the styles for makeup. Best make up I have ever gotten. I feel it's better make up than the MAC girls do at the mall.

I have used Glamarazzi Brides a few times all with different looks and I always walk out feeling beautiful and with more knowledge of skin care, how to apply makeup and what works best for my face shape and eye shape. I always receive the best compliments and my makeup lasts all day.

The day of my wedding 7/15 my makeup artist cancelled. When I tell you, I was stuck, I just cried, I panicked, I didnt know what to do. Immediately my one of my bridesmaids/friend suggested Tay, she had used her before and really loved her work. I called her and left a msg, as she was with another client but she text me back for the location and said she would come within and hour and do as many faces as possible. 4 ladies including myself, let me just say she is a Wonder Woman. Not only did she come within an hour, she got all of our makeup done in a timely manner with precision. Flawless is not even the word to describe. She is a magician with those makeup brushes. She really knows her stuff, tay is so sweet and personable. She is definitely a true artist, if you need to book and artist and are on the fence book with Tay, you will not regret it at all, my only regret is that I didn’t book her in the first place.

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.
