I can't say enough good things about my bridal makeup experience with Steph!! From the start, she was professional and super easy to get in touch with - while being warm and friendly at the same time. From our first phone call through our demo and all the way through my wedding day, Steph made my mom, my bridesmaids and I so happy and comfortable! She really knows her stuff and wasn't phased at all when my MoH started with a half-up/half-down look but came back two hours later and asked for a full updo. I knew whoever I hired for to do my bridal hair and makeup would be spending a considerable amount of time in a big house with my crazy family running in and out, so it was really important to me that the person I chose could roll with the punches and help me stay relaxed in the midst of the chaos....Steph was definitely the best woman for the job. I'm still getting compliments a week later on how beautiful and natural our makeup looked, and I can't stop looking at photos of my updo and wondering how it's all my own hair. There about a million reasons why I wish I could go back and relive the day, but one of the biggest is because I wish I could get pampered and beautified by Steph all over again. She is THE BEST!

I hired Tatiana to do my makeup for my bridal shower. She was on time (at 7am!), confirmed the day before (since I forgot), texted with me, and most importantly, she did a great job! She happily dealt with my huge crazy dog and a house full of loud visiting family members. She did exactly what I asked of her and even made a change at the end when I decided I wanted to go darker on the eyes ☺️ the makeup lasted all day and looked wonderful! I would definitely recommend her 👍🏼⭐️

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 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!

I loved my experience with JenniG. I am the type of girl that does not have much experience with makeup and only really likes a natural look with a little pop when i go to events like weddings. Jenni understood and perfectly executed what i was looking for !!! Which is something that i have had trouble with before with other MUAs. I loved my look and definitely will be booking Jenni in the future.

Audra did my wedding makeup, and I truly have never looked more beautiful (before or since). I have hyper-sensitive, rosacea skin with a lot of freckles, and she was able to make me incredibly naturally look even and dewy. Everything she did lasted ALL night, no shifting, smudging, or budging. She also applied eyelash extensions that were amazing. Her Vivalyn products work wonders, and Audra works magic!

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!!

Ashley and her team were amazing to work with! For my wedding, I had 8 girls doing hair and 3 doing makeup so it was a huge task. They were punctual, skilled, creative, and receptive to any feedback we had. They were a joy to work with and we all looked gorgeous thanks to them!

    About

    What I do, is not "just a job". My professions, my career are a mirrored impression of the kind of person I am. I take in the individual clients' features, hair movement, eyes, lips and determine what make-up, colors and hair styles will look excellent and beautiful on THAT particular client. No two clients are the same. The same goes for my event planning, no two parties, weddings, etc, are ever the same, they are exquisite and beautiful,on anyone's budget.

      I like to think that my work is above and beyond a clients expectations. I have several years of experience in the fast paced and high stress environment of event planning and makeup. I draw from my credentials as a holistic skin care specialist , my extensive education, and my background working everything from runway to print. If you want to look fabulous and you want your event to look fabulous , I'm your girl. I'm also very calming and an excellent communicator.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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 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.
