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!

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 had an amazing time with mylissa. She def knows how to bring out the beauty in you not only with her makeup skills but with her ease and excitement. I never paid much attention to my cheek bones until she said she couldn't wait to get her hands on them. It made me laugh and feel good about myself. Wonderful experience. Will go back for my wedding makeup as well!

Grace was amazing. She arrived on time for my wedding makeup and was ready to work. She had good products and was so attentive to my face. She's a very nice person with a down to earth personality. My makeup did not budge and I was sweating. I would hire her again, she delivered good service with affordable rates.

Amna is beyond amazing! I hired Amna for my wedding to do my makeup and hair. I am extremely picky/specific with my makeup and asked for natural looking makeup with smokey eyes. Amna was very patient and gave me exactly what I wanted. My makeup lasted all day-night, on a outside July day. It was perfect.

Morgan and her girls were very professional. We communicated through thumbtack/email all the way up to a few days before! They arrived on time and set everything up (she even had ring cleaner and let me keep my lipstick and mascara for the day). Whether we were indecisive or picky the girls accommodated to all of our needs! I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a reliable and professional wedding day hair/makeup/nail service. Thank you Morgan!

Ashley did the makeup for my entire wedding party on 6/23/18. Being a person that never wears makeup, and has no clue about any of it, I felt very comfortable with Ashley. She was so kind, funny, and helpful. We received many compliments on our makeup from guests at the wedding. I would 100% hire her again for any future makeup needs.

Christina the owner did my makeup for my friends wedding. She did a phenomenal job. She came to the bride's house fulling prepared. I presented her with a picture of how I wanted my makeup to resemble and I sat in her awesome makeup chair and she was awesome. She took her time. Had aNY kind of makeup you wanted. She airbrushed me and made me look amazing. Before she packed up and left after doing all of our makeup she made sure everyone was fully satisfied and did any touch ups that we may have needed. I would recommend her to anyone. I would definitely get my makeup done again by Christina for a night out, wedding, girls day anything. She is super nice and sweet and does an amazing job.

Iris recently did my makeup for my wedding, as well as my bridesmaids. The entire process - from the pre-wedding hiring phase, to getting ready the day of - was a breeze thanks to Iris! She was so responsive to my millions of questions on thumbtack, quick to answer, and so sweet with reassuring me! The photos of her work speak for themselves; Iris is extremely talented. I wanted a more natural makeup look for my wedding, and she made sure to ensure my makeup wasn't caked on and heavy. She showed up on time, was a pleasure to talk to while she was doing my makeup, was quick (my entire bridal makeup took barely over a half hour!), and not overpriced like most of the other quotes I had received. Best of all, my makeup lasted the ENTIRE day without budging (through outdoor photos and ceremony, dinner, the reception - with a lot of dancing, and an afterparty). I even fell asleep in my makeup, and while my hair was a mess, my makeup still looked presentable! I truly cannot recommend Iris enough, and I hope to work with her again in the future!

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!

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.

    Wow! Jenni’s work is so impressive because she captures the exact look I want with her polished mua skills. I usually bring some of my own tools to my makeup appointments, but they aren’t even needed! She leaves everything in her own hands literally, and I was definitely satisfied with the outcome of my New Years beat. I’ve been going to Jenni for years, and she never disappoints. How could I look elsewhere when my selfies are the bomb.com? - Kay

        I am a professional makeup artist. I love to make people look their best especially in the most important day of their lives. I've been doing this for as long as I can remember. Makeup is my life.

        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.
