Excellent makeup artist. I hired her for Halloween and she came last minute and saved the day. I wanted the Queen of Dragons look from Game of Thrones and I thought she did a spot on job.

Shabnam did my makeup as a guest of a formal wedding. She's one of the most professional Makeup Artists that I have met. She asked me what type of makeup I wanted and she did exactly what I expected. She made me look sooo beautiful that I didn't want to put the mirror down. I received so many compliments about my makeup at the wedding, and people wanted to know who had done my makeup. I recommend Shabnam to anyone who is looking for a fantastic Makeup Artist. Azi Ashtiani

Working with Julie was a total breeze, I would recommend her to anyone for makeup! I was searching for a makeup artist for the wedding and stumbled upon Julie's page. I am typically a very low-maintenance type, I don't typically wear makeup during the week, so I just wanted to look like an enhanced version of myself. And, budget friendly was a MUST! Upon first interaction with Julie, I was really amazed by her professionalism. She was ON IT. Count on prompt, detailed responses. She is very open and honest about her product and what my experience with her would be like. She has you fill out a consult form and send looks of makeup you'd like. I was really impressed by the detail- allergies, what your skin type is like, etc. She was also very conscious of my budget and worked with me for what I was looking for. Anyway, we did a trial for the engagement shoot, and spent some time going over looks and trying out shades that worked for my skin. Julie spent SO much focused time on me for my trial. We had a lot of fun working together as she is very easy to get along with. Julie's esthetician background influences her focus on skin. I love how she "pampers" the brides with a special mask before applying the makeup. It really makes your skin glow once all the makeup is done. I've never had my skin look so good! After seeing the engagement photos, I loved the natural look, but wanted a more dramatic look for the wedding. I trusted that she would nail it and she totally did. She made my eyes pop exactly how I wanted them to! I save the best two things for last: 1) We were at the wedding venue from 1:00 pm until 10 pm on an 85 degree day. I spent the entire night after dinner (about 6-10 pm) dancing. So imagine the toll that would take on my makeup. There was a photo taken of me right after and my makeup STILL looked in credible after all that sun and dancing! That was what really sold me on Julie. Not only is the initial product good, but it STAYED good the whole night despite the "wear and tear". That was my biggest "WOW" factor. 2) After the wedding... keep in mind this was well AFTER the wedding. I remembered "hey, Julie knows skincare, maybe she can give me some advice". I sent her a quick email asking about her favorite products and what my skin care goals were, and, in total Julie fashion, I get an incredibly helpful and detailed response for how to take care of my skin! Another big WOW. I couldn't believe how generous she was, even after my event was over. Julie is someone who really cares and is quick and happy to help. Could not recommend her more. Thank you, Julie, for making me look so fly on my special day!

Great experience! Maribel is the sweetest and very talented!!! I LOVED the way my make-up came out. I have tried other makeup artists in the past and I've never really liked how it came out. To the point, I'd just wash it off and do it myself. But not anymore!! I am so happy to have found Maribel! I will definitely use her again and recommend her services to all my family and friends! Thank you so much, Maribel!

Betty did a great job on myself and my daughter. She was a pleasure to have around and had a great variety of excellent products. She was so knowledgeable on the different makeup styles. I learned a lot in a few hours. Her hairstyling was amazing too. I'd highly recommend Betty for any makeup and hair needs. We hope to see her again. Maria

Jessica and her assistant arrived on time with a light and all the tools. The reason for 4 stars is for the hair and having to tone down the makeup. The initial makeup was WAY too dark but Jessica toned it down and gave me a look a liked. However, the hair was curled towards the face in the front and the back was very messy. I ended up redo'ing the front sections of the hair after they left.

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

Irene is an outstanding makeup artist!!! She quickly sent out a quote, and was extremely responsive when asked questions. Even though I was very detailed in what I wanted, Irene did an OUTSTANDING job in bringing my vision to life for my graduation ceremony. She met us at the venue on time, and was super pleasant to talk to. Her prices are very reasonable too. I totally look forward to hiring her again. Don't sleep on her for makeup application - she's truly a professional!!!

    Dre was the best thing that ever happend to me in my incessant search for a makeup artist for my wedding 9/2017. The first session she spent over 2 hours perfecting the look I wanted, constantly adjusting according to my needs, not what she felt was best. I truly appreciated this about her since I had bad experiences with other artists before her. She was incredibly warm, kind, friendly, accomodating and most importantly exceptionally talented! She did a wonderful job with not just my make up but that of my bridesmaids as well, all in a timely fashion for a very reasonable price. My bridesmaids were so happy and couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful they felt :) I am sure they will be hiring her for their weddings! I hope to continue to visit Dre to work her magic for other events. I would recommend her to anybody for any of your makeup needs! Thank you, thank you, thabk you!

    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.
