I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

I don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

GLAD MAKEOVER EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS!!!! Recently I was invited to a "a semi~formal" Gala.,and found myself seeking out the services of a Professional Celebrity makeup artist. I needed someone to take my everyday self (think running /workout shorts, tank tops, hoodies, scrubs, and running shoes, no makeup, no styled hair) and turn my "ugly ducking" into a "beautiful swan" I went online and was lucky to find the multialent Dorisa Lew. Doris used her skill and experience to put all my fear about hiring a professional, to a rest . I didn't want to look "plastic/feke" and I have a scar that extends from my hairline down into my eyebrow, plus I am blind in my right eye, very, very sensitive. And I wanted my hair tone done up off my shoulders, but something soft, not severe. I wanted a soft, natural, simple, but Classic look. Doris accomplished that and more. She did bring out my " inner swan" , and boosted my self confidence 10x over!!! I cannot say enough about Doris or express how much this meant to me!!! I can't helpf myself to look how so beautiful!!!! Next time I will come again..... Thank you Doris!!!! If you have a need of a professional makeup artist, i highly recommended Doris Lew!!!! She will transform you into your "beautiful swan"

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

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.

Liz is my go-to makeup (and hair!) artist for all of my photoshoots! As a personal branding expert, I provide my clients with visual marketing strategy and a custom photoshoot. As soon as I started working with Liz over a year ago, I noticed a big difference in how my clients looked and felt during their shoots. They don't have to worry about how they look and they feel like a polished up version of themselves, which is key to their authentic representation in images. Liz provides a range of looks based on each person's unique style, and always brings out the best in each person. She's a master at matching skin tones and covering up blemishes while ensuring the right amount of coverage for a flawless finish -- this saves so much editing time! She is professional and makes my clients feel at ease, which is essential because they are going to have their photos taken. I highly recommend Liz for all of your makeup needs -- professional photos, wedding, special events, or just for some pampering and a confidence boost.

Cindy was able to drive out to my house, arrived on time and with a great attitude to do my make up for graduation. Not only was she professional throughout the entire time, but she communicated what she envisioned for my make up and made sure that i felt comfortable and was pleased with the outcome. I love that she really focused on highlighting and extenuating my facial features with her work. She did especially amazing with facial coverage, eyebrows, and making sure my makeup blended well so as to not look “cakey”. I definitely recommend her!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
