I requested Sabrina to do my makeup for my wedding, I do not wear makeup at all and didn't really know what to expect but I knew what and how I wanted to look. She was very professional she was on time. She came in setup and didn't waste time. She did three people in a little over 2 hours. We were all women of color and she match our skin tone beautifully! Every one loved our make up and lashes. Thank you for making my day that much more special.

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.

I hired Ruba to do my makeup for a photoshoot and we met for the trial makeup to get an idea of what look I wanted to go with, she was AMAZING. The makeup looked stunning and I'm soooo excited for the photoshoot! She listened to what I wanted and made her own suggestions as the professional. Hire Makeup by RUBA, you will not be disappointed. The makeup was high quality and I am very satisfied.

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.

Maribel came to do my hair & makeup for my wedding as well as a bridesmaids hair & makeup another two just hair. My makeup lasted looking fresh all day until about 2am when I washed it off. One of the bridesmaids hair that she did was my own daughter and she had curls and they stayed intact. She also has a great personality makes it seem like you've been knowing each other for years. Which makes everything much more comfortable. The work she does is exceptional!! I will definitely be hiring her again in the future.

Everything about Patty is amazing. She did my hair and makeup in a parking lot for my engagement pictures with less than a hour to do it. Not only did she finished before the hour but she super amazing. I already hired and paid for my wedding day make up but if my bridesmaids don't use her I may hire her to hang out at my wedding to make sure I look prefect all day because I liked her so much.

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.

Mélanie is the only makeup artist I go to for the past few years now and I'm glad I do. I love the way she works and does her job so well. I don't even have to say any word for her to begin my makeup that's how much I trust her.

I would give Crystal more stars if I could! Seriously one of the best makeup applications I have ever had, and I have had a lot of people and friends do my makeup too! She was also very good at communicating and arrived & finished on time! Without a doubt, I would hire Crystal again if I am in SoCal =)

Doicelina did my makeup for my July wedding..she was amazing! She did a wonderful job, which turned out great and was also efficient. As I don't wear a lot of make-up she made sure not to have too dramatic a look, but still enough for my big day. All smiles here! Highly recommended!

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.
