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.

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.

It was wonderful to have Stannear as our makeup artist! She got me and my sister ready on time for a wedding reception. She was so professional and came with two ring lights, a chair and a stand. She took her time to color match and understand what look we wanted. The makeup was flawless and stayed on perfectly all night long! The eye makeup was especially amazing. I highly recommended Stannear if you’re looking for a professional makeup artist who delivers high quality looks!

Ericka is truly a master of her craft. She did a fantastic job transforming me into the Joker for Halloween! I had never worked with a makeup artist before and she went above and beyond to make sure I had the best products and was comfortable throughout the entire process.

This makeup artist was horrible. I hired her for my prom makeup, although She showed on time and was kind; her makeup skills lacked, after she did my makeup its was as if a 5 year old did my makeup. I told her in advance that I was a dark skin women and she said she was experienced with dark skin which was clearly untrue she put blush all over my face when I took a picture with the flash on all you could see was the pink blush that made my face caked, she also glued the false lashes on MY eyelid, so we had to take off the eyelashes.The eyeliner was also awful. We also redid the eyebrows which she over filled and made me look way older than I was. The makeup looked like 80's night. We spent over 30 minutes trying to fix this horrendous act. Total disgrace. I would highly not recommend her. The makeup didn't look professional nor was it high brand.

Wow!! Lina is such an incredibly talented makeup artist and stylist. I recently had a trial session with her for my upcoming wedding and she did an incredible job. She listened carefully to what I wanted, took a ton of time with me and executed the look I was aiming for flawlessly. She’s also fun to be around. I can’t wait to use her services again!

From star to finish, I had a wonderful experience working with Liana! From the initial consult to wedding day, Liana was super responsive and on top of everything. I did my wedding makeup trial at her home and was blown away at all of the product and equipment she had at her home was enough to make you feel like you had 'star status.' Liana was flexible. She was concerned with what I wanted my wedding "look" to be and she was willing to do some trial and error to make sure she nailed it and I loved it! Liana did bring along a FANTASTIC partner that was able to help with updos and my bridal hair style. She did the most beautiful braid in my ~24" of hair. I'd recommend Liana for any of your makeup artist needs and I'd ,hands down. trust her referrals and partners. Looking forward to the next chance I have to work with them. Thanks, Liana!❤
