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.

Ruba's makeup application is absolutely amazing! First of all, my makeup lasted all evening and all night (I had a very long event). No runs, no smudges and no wear offs (8 hours!) Second, she is very professional and flexible (she was able to come to me last minute because I couldn't travel. She uses the best, high quality products, had many choices for lashes and customized my makeup to my every specification. I highly recommend her if you are looking for an artist.

Alyssa was highly responsive from beginning to end, and remained a constant professional when we needed her to be flexible (as often is the case with unexpected changes at the last minute with weddings). She came prepared and was friendly throughout. She did absolutely great job with my hair and makeup. My only reservation was she was booked for other engagements and could not be flexible by staying later and that cut into the time it took to do the makeup for my mom. Instead of doing my moms hair I wished that time was spent dedicated on doing her makeup only. In my initial request, Alyssa was booked for makeup only for my mom so when she asked if my mom wanted hair too, we assumed she had time to do both the makeup and hair, and we did not think twice when Alyssa started with my mom’s hair first. My moms makeup was really the priority as I had requested. Alyssa did provide a $15 discount for the “light makeup” and I appreciate she did that. If given an opportunity to work with Alyssa again, I would book her again in a heart beat however my recommendation would be she clearly communicate given time restrictions on a day like; by asking if my mom wanted her hair done also lead us to believe she had enough time to do both. I would have preferred she concentrated on the makeup only as we had discussed prior.

Just excellent! I did a trial for my wedding with Zorahayda and absolutely loved the result! She did my makeup and hair for my wedding and she and her team also did hair and makeup for my sister, mother and mother-in-law. The final result was simply stunning!!! I was incredibly happy - everyone looked absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend her - she is professional, easy to work with and most importantly talented!

Paru did my makeup for my son's birthday party. She was kind enough to accommodate me into a very busy schedule. She arrived promptly to my house (which was a HUGE help with a little one at home) and applied the makeup during amicable conversation. When she finished and I looked in the mirror, I couldn't believe my eyes! She gave me the gorgeous soft glam look that I was hoping for, and made me feel 100% comfortable and beautiful! Everyone loved it, and the makeup lasted all day! She was so professional throughout the entire process, made me look (and feel) beautiful, and was also reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family and use her makeup services again if needed in the future. :)

I hired Itzel for one of the most important dates of my life, my wedding, so of course I wanted my makeup to be immaculate the day of and thankfully she did just that. I had a beforehand trial with her to ensure I knew what to expect on my wedding and I loved that she took the time to listen and actually gave me options on what would look best for my facial features. She loves what she does and it definitely shows in her work. I would recommend Itzel if you want good quality makeup work done for any special event. Thanks Itzel for meeting my expectations and more <3

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!

Lorena did an amazing job, I could not have been happier with the way my hair and makeup turned out. She came to do my hair, but because I was running late she offered to do my makeup for me too. It was super last minute, but she was still prepared and did an amazing job. My prom hair and makeup was on point. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs their hair and makeup done. Great job, and she was very nice. She was able to make good conversation and it helped keep things from being awkward. I had a wonderful experience, and she helped make my prom night that much more memorable. Thanks again girl! Great job &#128076;&#128077;&#128077;

Maria's work is exquisite! I can honestly say that I've never felt so comfortable having someone else do my makeup. She's very social which makes the experience even better and not awkward at all. If I could I'd have Maria do my makeup everyday.

So happy with the way my makeup turned out for my graduation ! I was going for a natural look, not too much makeup but just enough to add some glam ! Was super happy with the way Amber took her time with my makeup , loved the quality products she used on my face . I love the convenience ; she was able to do my makeup from my home which made getting ready for my big day so much easier! I would definitely recommend her and will for sure be requesting her services in the future for all my makeup needs ! Highly recommend (:

My face was flawless! I received sooo many compliments throughout the day. I showed her a pic of the look I wanted and she replicated it perfectly. Monica was very knowledgeable and patient with all the questions I had about her recommendations. I’m definitely referring her to anyone I know that needs to have their makeup done for any special occasions. Plus the fact that my makeup still amazing from 8am to 11pm was just icing on the cake.

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 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.

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.
