What can I say about Steph other than that she is the most down to earth, fun, caring, and kind person! Not only that, but she's AMAZING with hair! She made me and my girls feel so beautiful! All of my girls were raving about their hair all day long. She worked from 5:30 AM all the way through to 9:00 AM with no breaks, and somehow managed to be super sweet, and not get tired! I was so impressed with Steph from beginning to end. She has made this whole process so easy. I even made a change to the way I wanted my hair styled the MORNING of the wedding and she went with it, no hesitation, and I LOVED it! I cannot thank Steph enough for everything. DON'T HESITATE - BOOK STEPH IMMEDIATELY! :)

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 👍🏼⭐️

I was recommended Amna from a mutual friend. Hiring her to do my prom makeup was the best choice I made. She made my getting-ready-for-prom experience not at all stressful and rather enjoyable. Not only was she exceptionally sweet and funny but she was incredibly helpful. She took the time to communicate with me about what I wanted out of my experience with her and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. She also explained everything she was doing during the process and the products she was about to use on my face. As someone who isn't the most experienced with makeup, she really took the time to help me figure out what would compliment my face. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking and she will definitely be seeing more of me in the future.

This weekend, my mom and I had my hair and makeup trial (for my upcoming wedding) with Morgan and Destiny. I am so happy I chose to hire Behind the Scene girls for my wedding, and can't wait to see them work their magic on my bridal party in a few months. I was initially so nervous about finding an appropriate place to do the trial, because my apartment is so small, but these girls are literally a travelling beauty salon...prepared with chairs and mirrors and all! The girls were extremely knowledgeable, professional, and personable. They were also sure to check in with us every so often to make sure they were achieving the "look" we wanted, from eyebrow shape, lipstick color (mine had to be 2 blended colors to match one of my wedding colors), to the size of our curls. They also made us feel comfortable enough to ask for anything to be adjusted as we went along. My trial makeup and hair held up pretty much all day, too. I feel 100% confident putting the rest of my bridal party in the hands of BTSG for my wedding day. Excited to meet the other members of their team too. Thank you ladies! Excited for July!

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 went to Amani Aulaqi to do my makeup for a wedding. Her work was outstanding! Even tho I showed up a little late she still took me in and made me look so beautiful. I came to her with a specific look I had in mind and let me just say, I was way beyond happy with the results. She's just an amazing artist and she makes the experience really joyful. She's very kind and even after the wedding my makeup still looked fabulous to the point that I didn't want to wash my face. Thank you Amani for your amazing work.

    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.

    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.
