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.

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!!

I called on Iris pretty late at night and she responded quickly to my surprise. Her makeup skills and recommendations are on point. I thought I wanted a certain style of eye makeup, but because my eyes are pretty small, she recommended something I've never thought of before and BOY was she right. I looked AMAZING!!! All my life I've been doing my makeup all wrong for my type of facial features and Iris showed me how to enhance what I do have. Iris is a great makeup artist and a great teacher as well. She going to be the makeup artist I call on and recommend in the future. P.s. I'm transgender and still sometimes get nervous in situations like this because I don't know how people will react to me. Iris was very kind and treated me like a life long friend. I never once felt awkward at all. You can tell she has a lot of experience doing makeup for all types of people. Highly recommended !!

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!

Alicia was amazing!!!!!! She did my and my mother’s makeup for my sister in law’s wedding. She took the time to make sure we were both happy with our looks-which we were. We were both able to communicate with her over the phone before the event and she made sure we were comfortable during the entire process. I would recommend Alicia to anyone who needs makeup for their special event. She’s fabulous!

    Jesika is a talented and highly creative hair and make-up artist. I would say she's actually a designer. She is incredibly diligent in studying style and then recreating it. She did my hair and make-up for my wedding as well as for several creative, themed photo shoots (vampire, fairy tale and 1950s themes). She is funny and laid-back and put me at my ease every time I worked with her. But she's also very precise and perfectionistic (in a good way!). She's the best make-up and hair artist I have ever worked with. I highly recommend Jesika's services for weddings, photo shoots, prom hair and make-up, and personal style consulting and tutorials. She's also very reasonably-priced for the amount of work she puts in to making you absolutely gorgeous.

    Dana did hair & makeup for my sister and me when we were attending a full-day wedding of close family. We had great communication with Dana; she was very professional & punctual, and showed up with all her own materials/equipment, she rolled with the punches (working in my hotel room, where my 4-year-old was still asleep in the bed when she arrived!), and she really listened to my style requests. Our hair & makeup lasted beautifully through the 12+ hour celebration. And her rates were very reasonable! Thank you so much, again, Dana!

    Makeup by Alexis Gambardella was an exceptionally positive experience. I was fortunate to find Alexis via Thumbtack-- thrilled to find someone of her talent and ability to do the makeup for my recent wedding. Alexis is very professional and responsive to any and all inquiries in a very timely manner. Hiring a certified makeup artist was important to me-- Alexis is a star!! AND, she helped to make this recent bride feel like a star! With the skilled makeup application, the result was polished and classic. It is my great pleasure to highly recommend Alexis Gambarella. Oh, and her pricing is fair-- great value!!

    My friend had gotten married and Nicole did the entire bridal party's make up.... I felt like a completely new woman once she finished my make up. She was very patient with me because I asked a ton of questions, professional, and exceeded expectation... Great experience!

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          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 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.

          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.
