This company was terrific from start to finish. Tegan responded promptly with all the info I needed. Payment was simple. A pre-party confirmation call was made, and our hostess (face painter/balloon lady) arrived the next day and did a fabulous job. Thanks, the kids had a blast.

James was extremely prompt in returning my emails and we agreed to a price for removing a built in wine cooling unit. He arrived on time. The job involved a lot more work than anticipated and he was finally able to remove the unit. He was very professional and cleaned up everything when finished. I would highly recommend him.

Ashley is absolutely AMAZING. My husband found when we were planning our wedding for this July. I read over her reviews and was convinced. These reviews do not lie!!! You will not be disappointed. I had a trail run, which I scheduled on the day of my engagement photos. The makeup and hair turned out to be gorgeous. I loved everything about it! On the day of my wedding Ashley did my makeup and hair along with some of my bridal parties makeup and hair. Everyone look GORGEOUS!! She did so great on working with everyone's different skin tone and hair and making them look flawless. Not only did she do an amazing job, but everyone's makeup lasted ALL night, even mine. After sweating almost all night from nerves and dancing, I went to my bridal room right before leaving and saw that my makeup and hair (which is amazing because i was SUPER thin hair and very little of it) still looked the way it did when I started. I was AMAZED! Not only is Ashley great at what she does but she is so sweet, genuine, funny and so easy to talk to. While doing our makeup and hair my girls were having a blast talking to her. I will definitely be hiring her again if I ever need my makeup done for any special occasion and I know my bridal party feels the same way. Plus, she is super easy to work with. I must have change the amount of people getting their hair and makeup done and the style of hair I wanted to my wedding hundreds of times, but she was so sweet and so helpful and understanding of my crazy indecisive personality.

Houman was a professional from the beginning to the finish of this project for our math learning center. The quote was clear and very fair, and he worked easily with our schedule. The workmanship throughout the job was done with high quality materials and excellent handiwork. We rehired him for another job doing electrical and additional remodeling in the center's bathroom. I will be hiring Houman for additional work in the future and will also recommend him to others with no hesitation.

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!

She was nice and did a great job on my daughter . It was her special day.Her Quinceañera. She stay within the guidelines I gave her for her age. She got plenty of compliments aswell as I did. I will say I was tire and stress and didnt really gave much attention to my own makeup until later. The eyes and eyebrows were a little darker then what i would had like but ill give her credit for doing a great cover up since I had forgotten to wax my eyebrows. Like i said I got nothing but compliments.

Cori did an amazing job with the mural we hired her to paint! She was always on-time and had a nice friendly energy. She was prepared with all of her own supplies and was really thorough about cleaning up the project when she finished, which showed that she goes above and beyond for the work that she does. The process was so easy and professional - she came by to do a quick quote, we picked out colors together, and then she painted quickly and efficiently over the course of a few days. I would definitely recommend her for any of your mural or artwork needs!

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.

Cole is an amazing and talented artist and I was blessed to have her do my hair and make up for my wedding. She's very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. I have acne scars and blotchy skin and on my wedding day I felt so beautiful she knew what features to bring out and what to hide. Lets be honest not everyone has flawless skin but I was glowing for sure on my special day. I can't thank her enough for the wonderful job she did! I highly recommend Cole for any special occasion you won't be dissappointed! I love her warm and welcoming personality as well she makes you feel like you've known each other for years!

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.
