Tatiana is an awesome makeup & hair artist. On the day of my Wedding, she came on time and ready to work. She is very polite and listens to you with patience to give you the look that you want. She also gives you recommendations to make you look even better. I was very happy with the end result. I will definitely keep using Tatiana in the future. Thank you Tatiana!

I hired Steph as the hairstylist for my wedding. She worked on myself, my bridal party and my mother. I was blown away at the outstanding job she did. Steph is the utmost professional - She is courteous, patient and flexible and always followed up. Her work is worth every penny. Working with Steph was wonderful, we had an excellent experience and I would completely recommend her services.

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 👍🏼⭐️

Jazzmene conducted a wedding consultation for me and unlike other makeup artists I’ve worked with, she actually listened to what I wanted and delivered! I don’t wear makeup too often so she was able to create a natural romantic look for my wedding that didn’t make me feel too overdone. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER! I ended up hiring her to come all the way to MD to do 12 faces for my wedding day. She created a schedule, was highly professional, and did an awesome job. Love her!

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!

Roya did my makeup for my wedding and thanks to her I looked absolutely amazing on that special day. Roya is a true artist when it comes to makeup and making her clients look their absolute best. Roya is very thoughtful and methodical in her approach when using makeup as a medium to highlight the natural beauty of her clients. I have recommended Roya to other women and they all rave about her attention to detail and her use of only high quality products and brands of makeup. For my wedding Roya not only arrived early to prep my skin but also stayed with me throughout the wedding to adjust my makeup for my second dress change. Roya's artistry is not built on a one size fits all model but instead she captures the natural beauty of her clients by making them look and feel beautiful on their special day!

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!

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 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.
