Sana and her team (Shanelle and Marina) provided makeup and hair services over 2 days for my wedding weekend for 15-20 women (bridal party and family members) each day including my own. Sana was extremely organized and responsive from the first time we connected through Thumbtack. She gave me an excellent quote and was able to accommodate hair and makeup for such a large group. Initially, I had scoped out a different hair and makeup artist for myself before I had contacted Sana but after doing a trial with her, I was sold on her. She is so talented! She stayed in touch with me closer to the date and worked out a schedule with me to make sure we could get everyone ready on time. Her and her team did a fantastic job over the wedding weekend! Not only did they work diligently and quickly for hours to make sure everyone looked beautiful, they were super fun to work with and patient in understanding the look each individual was looking for and making adjustments as needed. Sana set up time aside to do my hair and makeup for my pre wedding day event and my makeup for my wedding day. Both days she gave me the looks I wanted and the airbrush makeup was flawless – it lasted all evening. The pictures of my makeup look amazing and already I’ve had people asking me who did my makeup for me. Thank you Sana and team for all your hard work and for making me, my friends and the women in my family look and feel amazing!

Robin was a fantastic hair and makeup artist to work with. I'm a photographer based in the Chicago/Milwaukee area and had a large shoot in Denver that I had to pull together on short notice. Robin responded to my request quickly with a clear quote and great examples of her work. I was confident from the start that she was the right choice for our project. Robin's communication was perfect, she was punctual, and her work with our models (different ages, skin tones and genders) was all spot on. Highest recommendation for this professional and talented makeup artist.

Christina did an outstanding job as a makeup artist for my daughter, her bride's maids, the mother-of-the-groom and mother-of-the-bride. She was friendly and professional. Christina asked a lot of questions to ensure she was meeting each individual's desires. I highly recommend Christina as a makeup artist, whatever your event.

I found Kelli on Thumbtack when searching for a makeup artist for my wedding. After our first makeup trial she had suggested a schedule leading up to my wedding with a series of chemical peels and dermaplaneing so my face was in tip top shape for my big day. I'm so happy I did!! Knowing my skin was on a routine to lead up to my big day was a huge stress relief. On my wedding day Not only my makeup but my whole bridal party's makeup was fabulous. Thank you a million Kelli💕💗💕

Heather might have magic powers. She has taught me practical hair and makeup styles I can use every day, and she has also transformed me into a super Va-va-voom vixen. I learn something from her every time, and always leave feeling beautiful and confident.

    I would highly recommend Cassandra for any occasion where you want to look and feel like the best version of yourself. She is punctual, professional and versatile. She did my makeup for a photoshoot, and I have never looked so good! These are pictures I will treasure forever, largely because my makeup is on point!

    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.
