Lety was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is the definition of makeup "ARTIST", as she transformed my look and made me feel beautiful on my wedding day! Lety is flexible, punctual and friendly, all of my girlfriends/bridesmaids enjoyed her presence and quality of the work done. I would definitely hire Lety again is a heartbeat for any other special ocassions!

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.

Amanda is the most professional make-up artist I have ever worked with. Amanda is reliable, and her background backs up her artistic skills. Amanda has done gel manicures on me several times, and she is very creative and patient when it comes to her artwork. Amanda is an excellent makeup artist, who is understanding, kind and professional. Amanda has a real gift, and she is a true artist! I greatly recommend her services!

Brigitte is a fabulous Esthetician and Makeup Artist. She has been waxing my eye brows for over a year, and I truly look forward to going to see her. She is very professional, and has a soft touch and a great eye. She has also done airbrush makeup for me, and I was blown away by how beautiful it looked and how long it lasted. Brigitte provides great service, and is a valuable investment! You are sure to feel as pretty as I always do when Brigitte is done with you!

I have used the Blo Out Lounge in several occasions. Not only for Hair services, but for makeup and eyebrow sculpting as well. They are always professional, prompt and helpful. I have referred them for wedding services and also brought in my niece for their Itty Bity service. Great place to include as an afternoon out with the girls and be pampered.

She is the best makeup artist I've ever met!! I respect her because she has passion and keeps studying. She understood what I wanted and how I wanted even if I didn't have clear idea myself. She didn't make me different person, she brought out my original charm. I think not all makeup artists can do that. It means she made me feel confident. I really appreciate her. She knows what makeup is!

I’ve gone to over SO many makeup artists, but never loved an experience as much as with Michaela!!! First and most important, I looked the hottest I’ve ever looked. I felt beautiful which led to me having the best night. Second, she was so prompt to getting back to me when I reached out regarding prices, availability, and services. Next, she was on time and ready to go. I didn’t have to wait which can be rare, or at least I’ve experienced a lot of people in the past be late. She was extremely respectful and fun and made me feel comfortable. And finally, she listened!!! She didn’t just do what she felt was right, she gave me what I wanted!!! I loved her and her work and will recommend her to everyone I know!!!

I honestly don't know what I would do with out Edyn and her incredible makeup skills. I was in a modeling competition where we were expected to show up with our makeup already done. Edyn woke up at 6am for me! I went to her house and she did my makeup in an hour! A little more than a basic glam look. I felt so beautiful that day and was constantly getting compliments on my makeup. I went to the final round of that competition and I 100% believe it couldn't have been done without Edyn. Thanks again girl! <3

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.
