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!!!!!!!!

Kelly went above and beyond for my wedding! had a terrible makeup and hair trial prior to meeting with Kelly for my trial. It made me very apprehensive to have another trial to begin with. Kelly listened to my concerns, never pressured me into a style/color/look that I was not comfortable with, and always let me know she was available for any wedding needs. On wedding day, she accommodated to my early wedding schedule (starting at 5:30am)! There was some downtime between my hair and makeup, so she did some airbrushing on my MOH and sister (at no extra cost for me). My MOH and I were running late to my ceremony, and Kelly checked us out of the hotel we were staying at. When it came to the actual ceremony, she helped my MOH put on my wedding dress (I had a tea ceremony dress) and stuck around to do touch ups on my makeup. I truly appreciate her dedication to her craft. She made me feel like myself, but just enhanced! I highly recommend Kelly!

Jen is a very skilled makeup artist. I've used her several times and I would definitely recommend. What I liked most about Jen is her ability to enhance the natural beauty by applying her artsitic skills in makeup to suite your event. She is up to date with makeup trends. She is passionate about the art of makeup and has her own unique classy elegant touch to it. She is definately my ‘go to’ person when it comes to makeup and she has a great personality over all!

I needed a make up artist and hair stylist last December 23, 2016 for a family photo shoot and found Careli. I'm glad I did, she's great! I love my hair and makeup and it came out really nice on the photos. She took her time and listened to what I wanted. Careli is a new make up artist and definitely will be successful in the industry. She's also responsive on my text and emails so communication was not a problem. The only negative comment I have was that she was half an hour late to my appointment. Apparently, she could not find the La Quinta Resort & Club which is a big surprise as she is from the area. I would have given her a 5-star if she was on time. Anyhow, will definitely hire her again if I'm in the PS area.

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.

I was stressing trying to find the right makeup artist for my wedding, and am SO happy to have come across Lesley. Not only is she an amazing girl who made me feel instantly comfortable, but she is so talented! Everyone kept telling me that my make up made me look like a princess (which is exactly the look I was going for). The airbrushing was awesome and my makeup lasted the entire day without any touch ups needed--even after spending hours on the dance floor! I absolutely recommend her to anyone needing makeup services. Thank you, Lesley!!

Honestly the best experience I've ever had. I've had my makeup done before by an artist and she wouldn't listen to anything I said. I said I wanted to have my makeup done a certain way and she completely did the opposite. Selene listens to what you want and lets you know a better way of getting what you want that goes well with your complexion so you leave looking amazing and happy. I love how she takes the time to think of what she is going to do instead of just getting on and out. She is absolutely astounding!

Let me start by saying Gabryelle is amazing! Not only is she a talented makeup artist but she is so much fun and makes you feel comfortable. Gabryelle did my makeup for a wedding that I was the maid of honor in and I hate to say it but my makeup looked better than the whole wedding party and even the bride. My best friend (the bride) told me she wished she had Gabryelle do her makeup instead of the MAC makeup artist. Gabryelle is truly someone who is passionate about her skill and it shows in her work. I just can't say enough about how amazing she is but if you get the privilege to have her do your makeup you will see as soon as you look in the mirror. I will definitely be using her again in the future and recommending her to anyone who needs a makeup artist.

I needed a last minute makeup artist for a photo shoot. I found MakeupSicknessByAly and she was so sweet and totally accommodated me by traveling to me! She was so funny and listened to every detail of what I wanted done. If you are looking for someone that you will be able to use for multiple events, give her a try, she is worth it!

    First and foremost I love Marissa. She is professional, kind and an amazing makeup artist. When I approached her about my wedding, she was just as excited as I was which was refreshing from a vendor. She genuinely cares about you and your special day and wants to make sure you look and feel absolutely stunning. My makeup for my wedding lasted all day and night and looked equally flawless from start to finish, through dancing and the elements! She truly made my special day by making me the most beautiful bride and I will always recommend her to any and all of my friends!

      Although I had to cancel the appointment due to a medical emergency, Brittney and Candice could not have been more understanding and kind about the situation. They are quick to respond to any questions or requests you may have and are very professional. Even though I didn't get a chance to use them this time I would definitely hire them again in the future.

      I'm so happy I discovered Taylor. Taylor did my makeup for my engagement photos. She asked about the location (Idyllwild), she made sure the makeup was appropriate for the location. After having such a great experience with her I knew I needed her to do my makeup for my wedding day. She made me look absolutely beautiful. I didn't want anything too heavy(because I still wanted it to look like me). She played up my best features-my eyes and lips. Everyone I spoke to complimented my makeup. If you're looking for someone to do your makeup for a special event or if you want to try something new Taylor is your girl!

      Debra did an outstanding job in working with me to achieve the exact look I was hoping for. I would recommend Debra's professionalism and outstanding artistry to any of my family and friends because she does excellent work. She was patient and calming to me as she prepared me for my wedding. In any future events I may be a part of will definitely include Debra doing my makeup.

      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.
