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 👍🏼⭐️

They were affordable and very responsive to emails. The 3 girls we had the day of the wedding were fun to chat with. Most everyone's makeup held up but almost all our hair had lost its curl. I think we just needed more hairspray since it was a on again/off again rain day. My only big comment is that at the end it felt very rushed. They said they would touch up my hair/makeup at the end (since they insisted the bride go first in the morning) but at the end I turned around and all the chairs and make up was packed up. Other than putting on my lipstick last, there was no other "touch up" done. I wish I had inisted that they touch up my curls and put the veil in before they took off.

Makeup was one thing I knew I didn’t want to worry about on the day of my wedding, and it came out perfect at my trial with Kasia! Kasia is a true professional, and I know she will make me and my bridesmaids look gorgeous on my special day!

Sharon was the makeup artist for my daughter's wedding and entire bridal party (9 of us) on 5/6/17. She is an incredible professional makeup artist and a perfectionist. Everyone looked stunning! Sharon puts 150% of herself into her work. As the mother of the bride,I had a makeup trial with Sharon and she worked with me, to find the makeup colors amd products that looked best on me, with my skin, hair color amd gown. She took the time to answer every singe email and we exchanged quite a few, my doing.) She knew EXACTLY what I needed to look my best. No one in the wedding pasty looked overdone, but we all looked perfect in our pictures and up close. My daughter (the bride), looked absolutely stunning. Sharon knew just how much makeup she needed to look even more beautiful in photos, yet not fake or overdone, up close. So don't think twice about hiring Sharon. She is incredible at what she does, she's prompt, reliable, and can accomplish magic with makeup. You get more than your money's worth. By the way, she is fun and wonderful to have around on a wedding day. Hire her!!!

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.

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!

I requested Evonne to do my makeup, along with 2 others, for a wedding we were attending. She was outstanding. I could not be more thrilled with how amazing she did on all of us. She gave me the exact look I wanted and was efficient with clock! Not only did she make us all beautiful, she was so fun to be around and her personality is like no other! I enjoyed how passionate she was about her love for makeup. It was great receiving compliments on my makeup and being able to suggest her to others!! I will be using her for all of my makeup necessities and will be referring her to all my friends and family!! Thank you!!

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.

Dekd.out is a personal friend who did an amazing job putting together this makeup look for a birthday event. She kept all her makeup tools sterile, which is SO important to me. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire application process. I got so many compliments on my makeup. Am definitely going with dekd.out for all future events calling for that extra glam!

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!!

    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

    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.
