I have to say it was my first time looking for a makeup artist on the internet and I was worried I would be disappointed . To my surprise and pleasure, Teresa was a blessing . I hired her for a Quincenera I was attending and she was so professional and caring . I felt like a friend who really cared about how i looked and felt was helping eat ready . I am a stay at home mom and I wanted to feel amazing that day and she did just that. her work is not only perfection but she really cares about how you want to look and feel . a great artist . Thanks again and I am looking forward to our next event . ..

Anne was fantastic. I've worked with almost a dozen makeup artists and she was most definitely the best. I showed her a picture of how I'd like my makeup and she did a phenomenal job so quickly. The makeup lasted all throughout the day and night and I received so many compliments. I will certainly be requesting her service again. If I could choose one word to describe her work- FLAWLESS!

Yenisei did my makeup for my engagement pictures and I wouldn't have wanted to go with anyone else. She arrived on time (early, actually) and was well prepared. She's friendly, courteous, and did a beautiful job! Yenisei knows that I almost never wear makeup so I'll typically feel like iIm wearing too much when I get it done, so she really works around my fears and pushes me out of my comfort zone but still makes me fell comfortable with the amount of makeup I have on. I usually let her do her own thing and it always turns out beautiful. I loved my makeup so much last time that I tried to wear it for two days straight! You won't go wrong with having Yenisei as your makeup artist!

The makeup artist was professional and on time. She knew what she was doing. My suggestion would be to have a look in mind ahead of time so you can guide her before she starts.

I hired Cynthia to do hair and makeup for my wedding party (bridesmaids and flower girls) last Sept. 16th 2017. Cynthia is an excellent makeup artist. She was on time, stuck to her schedule and did wonderful job with my girls. Me (bride) and my girls and the flower girls are absolutely look stunning when she finishes up the makeup and hair. I never been so beautiful before until the day of my wedding, she definitely transformed my beauty into the highest level! I received a lot of compliments during and after my wedding. I personally recommend her to do your makeup and hair, she has a lot of experience and she knows what to do even if we didn't had to do a trial, I can tell based on what she did to me and my girls. Thank you Cynthia for making me look like cinderella on my wedding day!

Farrah was amazing to work with, I hired her to provide hair styling on a photoshoot and Farrah was a joy to have around. As a makeup artist in the community, I can vouch that Farrah is trustworthy, cares about the clients needs and is extremely professional. The hair styling was beautiful, and the guest was blown away with Farrah's talent. Would work with her again.

The only problem you have when Audra does your makeup is you never want to wash your face again!!!! She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional but she also was very educational and didn't mind answering all my questions about products and how to's. And her kit is immaculate!!!!!! In a perfect world Audra would be the only person that ever did my makeup! She is by far the best makeup artist I have ever worked with!!!

Tallie is absolutely wonderful. She is a motivated and skilled makeup artist that is passionate about her work. I have called her a few times to do my face, and I've loved the results every time. She is always super flexible and willing to accommodate. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an artist to help them feel like their most beautiful self! A lot of artists just do whatever they want, but honestly I really like that she always listens to what kind of look I am shooting for. Tallie is super friendly and ALWAYS prepared... the first time, she brought a straw so that I could continue drinking my seltzer without smudging my makeup, and also conveniently had some Advil when I was suffering from a headache the second time. Amazing makeup and service, 5 stars well deserved!

Talented and sweet, Jesse is fantastic! His makeup is as good as it gets. I LOVED working with him and would not recommend anyone else. His approach to makeup is exactly what it should be: enhancing the natural beauty and features for every client. He has a gentle touch and allowed me to sparkle in my own particular way. I had done trials with at least 5 other makeup artists and always walked away feeling like a clown. Jesse was exactly the opposite. When I looked in the mirror it was the most beautiful I have ever felt. It was the perfect combination of natural yet glamorous. Exactly what I was looking for! I felt like me –just with allot of extra confidence and glow! He did my makeup and also my 5 bridesmaids and mother's wedding makeup in June in Sacramento, CA. He was extremely flexible and never took any suggestions personally. He reassured me he would do whatever it takes to "make it perfect" day-of. That is what he did and more! My bridesmaids truly LOVED their makeup and were so excited to get "all pretty" with Jesse. He was extremely flexible - from our 1st trial to the day of, he listened to all of my concerns and preferences perfectly. He stayed with me to do touchups, which was so important, especially if you shed a little tear at the ceremony (wich I did)! Hes also extremely responsive and speedy on email, which is always comforting for a bride. I'm wholeheartedly impressed with Jesse and his makeup capabilities. I looked exactly how I imagined I would look when dreaming about my wedding day as a girl. He helped in making it a day I want to live over again and again.

Tiana is amazing. I needed someone to come last minute and do my makeup for a wedding i was attending and she was more than willing to come and meet me as soon as possible! Not only was she friendly and professional, she was such a great makeup artist. She listened to everything i wanted but still added a little flare that made me look like i was absolutely glowing. I will for sure be throwing her name out there for anyone that needs their makeup done.

Jaime was my Bridal hairstylist and she made the experience perfect. She helped me color my hair up to the wedding to the perfect shade of Auburn. She interpreted the multiple styles I showed her on Pinterest and came up with the perfect blend of an updo and having it all down. She recommended the most amazing makeup artist. Your hair and makeup artist spend the whole day with you and Jaime is not only professional but so fun to be around. She did a few of my bridesmaid's hair and they were all overjoyed by the outcome. She balances what the bride wants and what the bridesmaids want like a pro, leaving everyone satisfied. I recommend her fully! She even helped my nervous mom relax and feel pampered after running around setting up. If you want to enjoy the getting ready process, look no further than Jaime!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
