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.

I hired Ashley for my October 5th wedding. She did an amazing job! We did a trial ahead of time and she came to my place. She arrived on time and was so friendly. I immediately felt comfortable. Then once I saw my makeup I knew I found my makeup artist for my wedding! I wanted my wedding makeup to be natural but also look good for photos. Ashley gave me the exact look I wanted! Not only is Ashley talented and professional, she is really genuine and kind. I love her and her work! I highly recommend her. My wedding makeup was flawless and natural looking and the best part was that my makeup stayed that way until I took it off at 1:00am! My makeup withstood the tears, laughter, hugs, smooches, eating, drinking, dancing, and all the photo taking! I couldn't believe it when looked in the mirror when we finally got back to the hotel, it truly looked like my makeup had just been applied (I had her do airbrush makeup- airbrush makeup is amazing and the application process is so relaxing)! AMAZING! So needless to say, I highly recommend Ashley. Oh- also- Ashley provided makeup services for some of the ladies in my bridal party. Each of them had their own requests for their specific makeup style/look and all of them were also super happy with Ashley's work! I can't say enough about Ashley. You won't be disappointed she is a true artist!!!!!

Julie met all my expectations and went beyond what was required by showing up to my appointment 30 minutes earlier (4:30 am). Julie has a very professional demeanor and is very attentive to details. Julie made my USC graduation pictures something to be admired for many years. Anyone seeking a great makeup service by a true professional should seek Julie's expertise.

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.

Amanda did an amazing job on my hair and makeup! I am not "makeup/hair savvy" and she 100% nailed what I wanted on my wedding day. I absolutely loved the way I looked and get asked who did my makeup and hair all the time. Absolutely AMAZING!

She is a wonderful person the way she does makeup is amazing. The only thing I would say is maybe have her do foundation and then add the airbrush makeup I believe it would make a difference and give you that full coverage look. This feedback is based on my experience, thank you Bridgitte !!!!!

I came across Shadez Fx by chance and am so glad I did! Lets start with their response and flexability. Our event started quite early and so I was totally impressed by their ability (and willingness) to show up super early to make sure we were up and out on time. The set up was quick, efficient and very professional. They had every tool you could ever think of and more! My makeup was beautiful and just like I was hoping. This was for my wedding shower and so, of course, it was super important to feel confident about my makeup. Sure enough, I got a ton of compliments and my features stand out in pictures. I recommend Shadez Fx with soooo much enthusiasm!

Kim did mine and my daughters hair & makeup for my daughters 15th birthday party. She had all ready done a trial makeup prior and I love that she was able to give her a natural look since my daughter doesn’t wear makeup. The day of the actual event both our makeups were intact until it was time to wash our face. I was expecting to look a mess after having danced and gotten sweaty but that didn't happen... I can’t wait to have another chance to hire Kim. Thank you so much for your amazing work!!

Rani is hands down the most professional MUA I've ever had the pleasure of working with. She was communicative every step of the way from beginning to end. She's reliable and a joy to work with. And then the makeup: I LOVED the work she did – she captured the exact look I wanted and needed. I'm already looking forward to working with her again on the next photoshoot!

Not only was Brit and her team so much fun, but they were incredibly talented and professional! From the phone consultation, I knew I needed Brit for my wedding. Besides being such a pleasure to work with, the makeup and hair turned out better than I could have hoped for. Everyone in the party was more than happy, and it definitely gave us some confidence boosts! Highly recommended! Still waiting on professional photos, so not any close ones of the makeup to share.

I don't want to go to anyone else! I needed my makeup done in a specific way for a photoshoot, and Emily surpassed my expectations! She is one of the most professional makeup artists I've had the pleasure of meeting, not to mention her personality made me feel at ease the whole time. Even my photographer (who is very picky) said the look was exactly what he was going for! If you need makeup done by a professional artist, Emily will definitely deliver. Thanks, girl!

    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.

    I’ve gone to over SO many makeup artists, but never loved an experience as much as with Michaela!!! First and most important, I looked the hottest I’ve ever looked. I felt beautiful which led to me having the best night. Second, she was so prompt to getting back to me when I reached out regarding prices, availability, and services. Next, she was on time and ready to go. I didn’t have to wait which can be rare, or at least I’ve experienced a lot of people in the past be late. She was extremely respectful and fun and made me feel comfortable. And finally, she listened!!! She didn’t just do what she felt was right, she gave me what I wanted!!! I loved her and her work and will recommend her to everyone I know!!!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
