I took one on one classes with Yesenia and she is an amazing teacher! I went from knowing very little about applying makeup on myself to being able to do multiple looks on my own.

Melissa is an outstanding makeup artist. She never does my face w/out looking to see who I really am. Foundation color, eye and lip colors chosen in class taught by her and Holly Fulger have saved me hundred$ of dollar$ I would have otherwise wasted on buying the WRONG MAKEUP! She'll teach you how to makeup your own face - and she won't hold back any secrets.

I was lucky enough to be "made up" by Stephanie for a stylized wedding shoot! She does amazing work! The shoot was running behind and so she had only a limited time to do my makeup, but wow does she work well under pressure! She made me look and feel like a million dollars. Not only is she the best MUA I have worked with but she is by far the nicest and most genuinely caring one! I would recommend her to everyone I know that is in need of getting their makeup done, feeling pampered and all the while feeling like they are chatting with a friend!

    Brittany is AMAZING!! She did my hair and make up for my wedding and I have never felt more beautiful! She also did hair and make up for all six of my bridesmaids and they looked absolutely stunning. She truly went went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did she do a wonderful job, she was also such a blast to have over. On your wedding day you do not want to be stressing about your hair and makeup and with Brittany I was put at ease knowing that she was going to do an amazing job. Thank you Brittany!

    Felina is a magician, plain and simple. My eyelashes are very light colored and relatively short, so I decided to experiment with lash extensions. As a total newbie to this process, Felina was great about explaining how it works, what to do and not to do in order to keep the lashes at their best, and she told me exactly what she was doing (and why) throughout the application process. The whole session took about two and a half hours, and I'm so pleased with the end result. The lash extensions look natural, elegant, thick, and luscious. They are light and I can't feel them on my eyes, which was an important element in my decision to get them (applied falsies feel too heavy and itchy on me). The overall look of the lashes is like I'm wearing subtle lengthening and volumizing mascara. They're not so thick and dark that they look like permanent makeup, but they eliminate the need for mascara applied each day. Overall, Felina gets 5 stars for the process, end result, price, and level of comfort she set up for the appointment. I will definitely be returning!

    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.
