Vesta is AMAZING! On my wedding day, she was on time, was very professional and did an excellent job with my makeup. My makeup, as well as my sister and mom's looked gorgeous and perfect throughout the day! I'd work with Vesta again in a second!

The services of this extraordinary artist are overwhelmingly satisfying. I first received her service of makeup for my birthday party. Ever since I came across her skill and talent to bring my vision to past she became my go to makeup artist. I appreciate her willingness to jump in and rescue my makeup mess ups. Her skill and talent are matched with professionalism. Her timeliness and cleanliness are always to be noted. When I recommend her to various females I never fail to mention her down to earth personality. I have gotten make up tips and style ideas all while having laughs and a relaxing experience. Overall when you book with this wonderful artist prepare to be Wowed and Blown Away.

This is the first time I have ever had a make up artist do my make up, and I really enjoyed the experience. She was very professional and punctual. I loved my makeup. My makeup lasted all day. She even gave me some tips/advice about how to do my hair since it was raining. (Hired for makeup only). Thank you, Tatiana.

Dany was excellent! I loved having her do my makeup - I don't wear a lot of makeup but Dany was very patient with me and tear ducts! My makeup looked fabulous for my engagement photoshoot in NYC. Honestly, I can not recommend Dany enough! She did a great job! I got compliments on my makeup all night long at my friends wedding!

Clarissa did my makeup for a night out on the town and she did an amazing job. Even though the lighting in my apt wasn't so great, She nailed the look I was going for and I got so many compliments that night. She was on time and had everything she needed to glam me up. I will definitely keep her on speed dial for my next big outing. Thanks Clarissa you made my night! :-)

Mahira did makeup for me, my mom, and my mother-in-law for my wedding. She came to my home in the Bronx for a trial (just me) and then day-of. Her work was perfect on its own, but more importantly, she was open to our thoughts, always asking how we felt, what we liked, etc. Mahira is not only talented, but a great person. I loved chatting with her during the trial and wedding, and her prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend using Mahira for all of your makeup needs. You won’t be disappointed.

I had my first makeup lesson with Kat and it really exceeded my expectations. She is so professional and friendly. The set up was amazing, very organized and clean. She gives detailed instructions and takes her time to explain each step. I literally have zero knowledge in makeup and no experience at all and she has so much patience and nicely corrected me and would show me the right way to do it. My end result was flawless and I'm so happy with it. I already set up my next lesson with her and I can't wait to absorb as much as I can of her knowledge.

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!!!

This was only my second time getting my makeup done, and I abosultely loved it. Not only is she my cousin, but she’s an amazing makeup artist who’s worked very hard to get where she is now. I really loved how she beat my face, she always asked if i liked this and that. I don’t know much about makeup, so she even taught me some stuff as well, as she was doing her thang❤️. Honestly, I loved the beat, Boook her❤️

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 !!

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.
