This is the first time I have ever had a make up artist do my make up, and I really enjoyed the experience. She was very professional and punctual. I loved my makeup. My makeup lasted all day. She even gave me some tips/advice about how to do my hair since it was raining. (Hired for makeup only). Thank you, Tatiana.

I was extremely pleased with Steph's work along with my bridesmaids and guests. The hair and makeup looked flawless and held up very well. Steph replicated my hair and makeup from my trial but somehow actually made it look even better on my wedding day. Steph is not only a great hairstylist and makeup artist, but a kind person. Definitely will recommend her to my family and friends in addition to any future occasions I will attend.

Susan is AMAZING, not only as a makeup artist but as a person too. As soon as she came to do my trial I knew she was the one. Susan puts you at ease and makes you feel beautiful. I have had my makeup done numerous times but nothing as excellent as Susan's expertise! She really took her time with me until both of us were satisfied with the results. Many people came up to me and complimented me on my makeup. Thank you Susan for making me feel so beautiful and confident on my wedding day! Marianne

She is one of the most amazing makeup artists that I have met and she only does this on the side. Amna is extremely responsive and gives the bride advice so that she looks her best vs. just doing what the bride thinks looks good in a picture. We hired her for my friends wedding ceremony and we were so grateful that we found her. I reccommend her to everyone I know. Just look at her pics, they say it all! She also has great prices for her services and advises on how to take care of your skin for the perfect makeup application for your specific skin type. I highly recommend!! Thank you Amna!!

Sharon was the makeup artist for my daughter's wedding and entire bridal party (9 of us) on 5/6/17. She is an incredible professional makeup artist and a perfectionist. Everyone looked stunning! Sharon puts 150% of herself into her work. As the mother of the bride,I had a makeup trial with Sharon and she worked with me, to find the makeup colors amd products that looked best on me, with my skin, hair color amd gown. She took the time to answer every singe email and we exchanged quite a few, my doing.) She knew EXACTLY what I needed to look my best. No one in the wedding pasty looked overdone, but we all looked perfect in our pictures and up close. My daughter (the bride), looked absolutely stunning. Sharon knew just how much makeup she needed to look even more beautiful in photos, yet not fake or overdone, up close. So don't think twice about hiring Sharon. She is incredible at what she does, she's prompt, reliable, and can accomplish magic with makeup. You get more than your money's worth. By the way, she is fun and wonderful to have around on a wedding day. Hire her!!!

Jazzmene conducted a wedding consultation for me and unlike other makeup artists I’ve worked with, she actually listened to what I wanted and delivered! I don’t wear makeup too often so she was able to create a natural romantic look for my wedding that didn’t make me feel too overdone. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER! I ended up hiring her to come all the way to MD to do 12 faces for my wedding day. She created a schedule, was highly professional, and did an awesome job. Love her!

As a former painter, Pent has an artists exacting knowledge of color. This puts her work far above that of the normal makeup artist. In my case she was able to identify an almost undetectable orange cast to the base I was using and switch me to another product that made a visible difference. Her subtlety is her strength.

I couldn’t believe I found this stylist in a pinch. It was last minuet and a little late at night. She was able to style my hair and do the makeup of myself and a friend. Her service was professional and I felt completely comfortable having her in my home. Her equipment was top of the line as well. I would recommend to everyone!

She works some serious magic. Very professional, easy to talk to, prompt, and does an amazing job on both hair and makeup. I had seven other girls in my wedding party get their hair and makeup done and every single one of them LOVED their look. Both her and her partner were amazing. Highly recommend!

From the moment she arrives, you are at ease! I am always hesitant to let other people do my makeup....so you can imagine how nervous I was on the day of my wedding. Well ladies, have NO fear...this lady is amazing. If you don’t like something or have any questions she takes the time to stop and listen, talk to you and make sure you are totally comfortable. Not only that but she takes into account how you normally wear makeup so you won’t feel over or under done. I have never felt so beautiful or had so much fun getting my makeup done. Stop looking and hire Alicia for you and your entire wedding party you will laugh and walk away feeling great.

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.
