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.

Sabrina did wedding make up for myself, the bride and 2 others at Lake Las Vegas. She was prompt and very dedicated to her art. She answered any questions we had and was very personable. We loved that she really listened to what we liked and didn't like, making sure my sister looked radiant but not overdone. Sabrina went above and beyond to make my sister's wedding day the best it could be. She was on time and even though we (the bridesmaids) were running late, she made sure to take her time with us so we looked perfect. I can honestly say that I wouldn't have changed anything because nothing went wrong; we all looked beautiful and had a cohesive look for the wedding. She left us with a touch up kit of powder and lipshades so the bride would look flawless in her photos and the bridesmaids would as well. I would highly recommend her to any and all of my friends as well as anyone who is looking for a wonderful makeup artist.

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!

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.

Great experience! Maribel is the sweetest and very talented!!! I LOVED the way my make-up came out. I have tried other makeup artists in the past and I've never really liked how it came out. To the point, I'd just wash it off and do it myself. But not anymore!! I am so happy to have found Maribel! I will definitely use her again and recommend her services to all my family and friends! Thank you so much, Maribel!

Jackie was my artist for a wedding and could not have been more pleased. She was punctual, professional and passionate about her craft. She is so sweet and lovely to work with. I have worked with a lot of other makeup artists and I can honestly say she is one of my ultimate FAVORITES! She is truly a gem! She did my makeup and hair and it was perfection. My makeup and hair lasted all day and all night and I even got compliments at brunch in the morning! I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her! Love you Jackie! xo

I loved working with Skye. I hired her to do full makeup for a 70s theme birthday party. Not only is she professional, but she is very sweet and accommodating. Her expertise in makeup shows, because everyone loved my makeup..... especially 2 professional makeup artists at the party. They told me "you lucked out. This girl knows makeup." I'm definitely hiring Skye for my next event and so should you.

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!

I just wanted to say that I recommend Wendy to anyone who is looking for an amazing makeup artist. Not only is she super professional but afforable aswell! She is so fun to be around and super open minded. I hired her right after my trail for my wedding makeup because I fell in love with the job she did. She also ended up dolling my mother and my sister up because they loved what she did wi th me. Wendy also works with a variety of great quality makeup and I loved how she explained what she was applying as she did It and if we wished to make any changes. Wendy is awesome and she made my day that much more special. She will be seeing more of me!

    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.
