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!!!!!!!!

Rebecca is an absolute professional. She went above and beyond to help staff 5 Makeup Artists in both LA and Las Vegas. She and her team needed very little hand-holding, and produced high quality makeup at an affordable rate.

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 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.

She did my prom hair and makeup, and it came out so good! She was very friendly, easy going, easy to work with. Also she does everything to your preference which was really really nice. I am definitely going to go back to her again. She is very much on the professional level for both hair and makeup.

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

I hired Jen to do my makeup, my mother's makeup, and my mother in law to be makeup for my 9/2/2018 wedding. She arrived on time was pleasant and she did an amazing job. At my wedding, everyone kept telling me how beautiful I looked. My mother never wears makeup and is always in sunglasses. Jen did my mother's makeup and everyone also could not stop commenting on how beautiful my mother looked. My mother in law was also commented on how beautiful she looked. Jen did an outstanding job. If I ever have any other important event, I will not hesitate to contact her.

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.

She did an amazing job for prom! Great job on make up it lasted me all night! When she put the lashes on I didn’t even know they were there. She was so nice and sweet. Had top of the line products at least it felt like it and she really matched the foundation well. The hair looked flawless I was so happy with it! I was a better me by the end of the day!

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.

Raina was very professional and time-efficient. I was able to show her a picture of what I wanted and she was able to recreate it perfectly, and even put extra glitter/shimmer when I asked for it. I really appreciated the time she took to make sure everything was perfect. She did my prom makeup and I loved the way it came out. My makeup lasted all night. Very friendly and helpful. 10/10

I booked Nathaly for Queen Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert last minute and she came through for me. I wanted to go for a natural but kind of bold eye look, but once she was done there were a few things I didn’t like and she fixed it right away and made sure I loved my look before leaving. She was very professional and had great conversation I would recommend Nathaly to any one looking for a free lance makeup artist and I would book her again in the future. Thank you Nathaly!!!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

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.
