I'm so glad that Shelly was available to do my daughter's hair and makeup for her senior prom! Shelly was very professional, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. She is very friendly and has a great sense of humor. I loved that she shared makeup tips and tricks with us as well! She definitely knows her stuff! My daughter's makeup turned out absolutely gorgeous...she looked like an Egyptian princess! Her makeup was natural, fresh, and young; perfectly appropriate for her age. Her hair was simple yet elegant...just as she requested. My daughter said that she received compliments all night on how beautiful she looked. You could just tell by her smile that she felt beautiful and confident. When she finally came home, her makeup still looked fresh as did her hair! (8-9 hours later!) Thank you so much Shelly; you made my daughter's senior prom that much more special and memorable for us! Your craft is perfection and we definitely look forward to working with you again in the future! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Everything about working with Jessica was amazing. She is a truly talented artist, and I would not have wanted to work with anyone else for my wedding. Would (and will) highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hair and/or makeup artist for a wedding, or any special event. She was fun to talk with, open to ideas, and a really positive presence during the morning of the wedding. She showed up early to start! And in the words of my bridesmaids, "she's not just a hair and makeup artist, she is literally a magician." She was really quick to respond when I messaged her, and was a true professional. Thanks so much for being a big part of what made my wedding morning great Jessica!!

Jordan is a true gem!Her exceptional talent and artistry in makeup are only made better by the fact that she is a stunning individual as well, both inside and out. Jordan was my makeup artist for my wedding and she has done makeup for many of my friends as well. I cannot look back on my wedding photos without being reminded of how beautiful I felt, but also how natural it looked. I looked like the most beautiful version of myself and that created so many gorgeous photos and memories that I will have for a lifetime. Jordan creates such a comfortable environment and is more than happy to accommodate any vision you have for your day. And if you're like me, and don't know a whole lot about what you want she is able to utilize her wealth of creative abilities to create a look that is beautifully and uniquely you. She made me feel completely at ease and her contagious energy made me feel even more pumped for my big day! You cannot go wrong with Jordan. You will be blown away by her work, her reliability, and the pride she takes in every look she creates.

    Heather is a patient and creative makeup artist. She walked me through every step so I could attempt to duplicate the application at home. Heather listened to my request for covering my red spots, and she made my skin look flawless! Her products are top notch and long lasting. The studio Heather has is comfortable and calming. I would recommend Heather to anyone looking for a professional makeup artist. She is amazing!

    Amanda did wigs and makeup for me when I played the role of Flora in Opera Philadelphia's LA TRAVIATA in October, 2015. Amanda is wonderfully kind, professional and talented. When I mentioned I had sensitive skin, she heard me and adjusted the amount of foundation she applied. My wigs were short bobs with killer cut and color, so the eyes had to really pop to stand out -- Amanda gave me a great saturated smoky eye with plenty of light around the lashes so my eyes could be both sexy *and* seen from far away. Lips were a deep, sexy red and the shading she added to my cheek bones pulled the look together gorgeously. In addition, Amanda's positive, calm, supportive presence made the time beneficial as I prepared to focus in on the character I was playing. I would recommend Amanda to anyone, it was a please to work with her!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
