Jaime did an absolute stunning job on myself and my friend Becca. We both looked dropped dead gorgeous and got many compliments. This was Jaime’s first time doing makeup for a body building show which required very dramatic and heavy application. She was punctual and detailed. We couldn’t have asked for a better make up artist. Thank you Jaime for making our day special and stress free.

Christina has always been extremely professional and enjoyable to work with. She always arrives on time, with a good attitude, ready to work and tackle anything through the day. She's very fun and makes everyone relaxed and comfortable. She's also completely willing to lend a hand, teach, and share her expertise. She's extremely talented and a joy to work with, I love having her do my makeup and teach me when I'm doing makeup any time I can.

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!

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.

She was so welcoming, and would respond within a couple minutes, and after my plans changed she was so easy to work with. The makeup was incredible, very talented and will definitely hire again and recommend to anyone who's looking for any kind of makeup.

Stephanie is amazing! She knows exactly how to bring out all your best features and make you look like the best possible version of yourself. She takes a painterly approach to her craft that sets her apart from other makeup artists, I wouldn't hire anyone else to do my makeup, she's the best!!

Marian was superb in helping our 16 year granddaughter with makeup, body image, color and style tips appropriate for her age. She did this by listening thoughtfully to Laura’s input, showing her what makeup to use for daytime that complimented her skin and eye color on half her face and then having Laura practice applying to the other side. She emphasized posture and tactfully stressed avoiding mannerisms that distract from a message. (Often those a Mom stresses but coming from a professional the words had an impact.) Shopping was fun because Marian’s pre-selected items prompted Laura to try new styles and colors which she liked. Laura returned home with new fashion knowledge, self-awareness and a back-to-school wardrobe. We would highly recommend Marian Rothschild. MR

    Tierney is incredibly gifted! I wanted to feel special for an event I was attending this summer and she made me look exactly like how I wanted to feel - beautiful and still so much myself. Her talents kept me feeling gorgeous the whole night! Beyond her abilities to provide makeup for a special night out, Tierney also offers phenomenal special effects makeup and makeup for photo shoots, etc., as well. Look no further for your makeup needs!

    Kimberly is an amazing talent. She did the Dia de los Muertos makeup for my book trailer and launch party. It was fantastic! She was wonderful with my teen models and so well prepared. Everyone was amazed at her gorgeous creativity.

    I love changing the look of someone or just making them feel special for whatever occasion, if it is for your wedding or just as simple as taking family photos, the sky is the limit. I will come to you and we will do a 2-4 hours consultation. This can either be in one day or we can break it up into two. My goal is to make this as stress free for you as possible. My specialty is makeup and updos. Feel free to ask as many questions as you can, again this is your day. I am just there to make you look and feel beautiful. Hope to meet with you soon, Cherie

I studied at Makeup Designory in New York City and have worked for salons, modeling agencies, and as a freelance artist in Connecticut, New York, and Miami. I offer stunning, professional work using up to date techniques and skills.

    I have sephora experience, I can give you lots of tips for particular skin types. While I do makeup I like to teach my clients in order for them to learn and also do their own makeup on a daily basis and feel confident about it!

    Professional makeup artist providing wide range of services to Northern Colorado.


    I do people's makeup. What makes my business great is I see what my client wants first. Then if they don't know, I suggest the looks (colors, bold or settle), showing them pictures or videos. I also watch videos and look up pictures just in case the client doesn't know. I provide a good service.


    We provide on-location professional makeup services. We provide makeup for bridal parties, engagement photos, special events, photo shoots, and lessons. We offer the highest level of customer service and flawless application that lasts all day and all night and customized to bring out the most beautiful you.


    My work stands out from the work of other beauty professionals because I take the time to listen to the opinions and concerns of my customers before starting the service. I want my customers to feel and look beautiful, but I also want them to feel like themselves.

    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.
