Ande was my makeup artist and photographer for my wedding. She did an amazing job. My makeup was tailored to what I was comfortable with and the photographs are my most treasured possessions. She managed to capture all those special moments, especially the ones I couldn't be there for. Overall she managed the day well and even provided some much-needed advice on timing. Ande has a knack of making people feel comfortable while capturing the perfect shot. If you ever need a talented photographer, she is most definately your girl.

I had Cassie do my makeup for a murder mystery party. She did a wonderful job working with my costume to reflect the era and theme. The whole night party goers commented on/complimented my makeup. I would recommend Cassie for any occasion that you want to look good. She will wow you. :)

Crystal has done my make up for a couple occasions, my favorite look so far has been for a birthday dinner in a smokey eye and bright lip. She is not afraid to be bold and creative, which I loooove. She is a well rounded makeup artist that keeps up with trends but can also execute a classic look flawlessly. I enjoyed that she shared tips with me that inspired me to get more creative with my everyday look. She pays attention to detail, is very nice, and professional. She made me feel and look gorgeous every time, plus all the compliments I received only reinforced that! All my friends have been asking about her because they love her work and I do too! Will definitely come to her for my upcoming wedding! I highly recommend her, you won't be disappointed!

    I absolutely LOVED how Maddi did my hair and makeup for a wedding. I am not the type to wear makeup what so ever. She made me feel beautiful and confident. Her work was definitely noticed. Everyone I talked to complimented how well my makeup and hair was done and asked who did it. She is extremely talented and I can't wait to book her for another occasion!!! Highly recommend her. You won't regret it!

      Rakhee is amazing at what she does.. I have been going to her for facials since we moved to Bakersfield. Since then I have treated friends and family to facials and body wraps with Rakhee. Every one that has been to her claim she has magic in her hands. About a year ago I had an event to go to and I decided to get my makeup done. I was amazed at the transformation she did. Since then I have hired her for many occasions including weddings, parties and most recently halloween. The makeup application was perfect for each occasion and I have gotten compliments every time. I myself am pretty good with makeup but going to Rakhee for makeup does wonders. Most recently she conducted a class - makeup 101 where she focused on teaching some basics and creating looks. The best part was that she actually took the time to show me how to do the looks myself and guided me in picking good products from my favorite brands. I highly recommend her.

      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.
