I hired Kasia off of Thumbtack to makeup design a shoot in Northampton, MA for a web series based out of Los Angeles, and I can say with absolute confidence that the quality of her work rivals that of industry professionals working on network television. We required Kasia to create two different special effect looks for very swollen and irritated eyes. Kasia exceeded our expectations. Not only was the look incredibly authentic and horrifying (as we had intended!) she created it on a relatively low budget with a very short window of time to execute the look. She was patient, proficient and a joy to work with on a very fast-paced set over the course of an incredibly long day. On top of that, she did simple, clean and beautiful base makeup for all other actors on set. I would hire her again in an instant!

Hiring Steph to do makeup for my wedding day was the best decision I could have made. From my trial to my wedding day she helped me figure out exactly what I wanted. She is patient, down to earth, and exceptionally talented. My bridesmaids all loved having her there as we got ready and they looked stunning. I have never been a big makeup person, so professional makeup has always made me a tad nervous. I can honestly say I have never felt as beautiful as I did on that day! I didn't want to wash it off! I would recommend her with no hesitation to anyone looking for a makeup artist for any occasion. Thank you so much for everything!

Grace did my makeup for my wedding. Not wanting to feel over done, but hide my hyper pigmentation was a concern for me. She was at the venue right on time and was fun to spend time with while she did our makeup. When she was finished I was so pleased with the outcome. Fully covered but not too heavy and really stunningly done. Thank you so much for your help on one of my biggest days.

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!!

Carina did an excellent job at the Halloween Party we hosted and was sure to get through all the kids that wanted facepainting before the party was over. Her work is incredible and was most definitely the hit of the party! She even coordinated facepainting based on the children's Halloween outfits. My daughter did not want to wash her face last night :)

Over the years, being an actress, I have worked with many professional makeup artists. Christina from Divine Elegance, by far made me feel the most comfortable any makeup artist has. And the end result was absolutely great! I would recommend her to anyone!

Thankful i found Ashley via thumbtack. She did my makeup for prom and i received so many compliments. I also wanted to share with anyone that thumbtack is making it very hard for artists like Ashley to get customers. Makeup artists are being charged upwards of 20 dollars just to be contacted and are charged even if you don’t respond ever again. This makes me really sad that hard working women are having their money taken like that. Hopefully you can get in touch with her by googling Glamsformation beauty and getting all her contact info!! She’s worth it!

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 !!

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.

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!!

    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.
