Hi everyone! I must say that I was very impressed with Ms. K. Artisme face painting designs. She was wonderful and believe me my twin girls were besides themselves. They loved the makeup and I enjoyed watching them and the other kids at their birthday party. I planned on using her during my Halloween batch. You will not be disappointed!

I absolutely love Stephanie! If you're interested in booking a makeup artist for any and all occasions, look no further Stephanie is all you need! I have had my makeup done by Stephanie multiple times and she never fails to deliver an all inclusive professional makeup experience. When I stumbled across Stephanie's work, I immediately reached out to book this hidden gem. Stephanie responded right away and was extremely accommodating and flexible. Stephanie arrived punctually and began setting up her work station right away. It only took minutes for Stephanie to have the most diverse array of brushes and makeup I've ever seen, she even had lighting! Stephanie was professional, friendly, and made me feel completely comfortable. Stephanie is exceedingly sanitary and kept everything cleaned and organized as she worked. Stephanie gave me tips on problem areas I informed her on when doing my own makeup and shared her methods on achieving desired looks. When I looked in that mirror after Stephanie finished my makeup, I was AMAZED! It was everything I wanted and more. Stephanie enhanced my natural beauty without making it seem like I had makeup on just like I asked of her. It was STUNNING and all night everyone kept complimenting me and asking where I got my makeup done. Never had I felt so BEAUTIFUL and at the center of attention.I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone! Stephanie is a brilliant artist! I have challenged her to do both natural and dramatic beauty makeups along with frighteningly beautiful Halloween makeup. Stephanie surpasses my expectations every time. Stephanie has great prices for the value of services she provides. Stephanie has done makeup on me and a group of my friends always within the timeline set. Stephanie even takes professional photographs of the makeup, with permission, and emailed me the pictures!! 10 out of 10. Stephanie is the best makeup experience I've ever had and she comes to you. What more could anyone ask?!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have Emily as my makeup artist for a formal event!!! She came in cheerful and ready to get down to business making me look beautiful! I was skeptical at first, because I'm very picky about how my foundation looks, but she perfected everything. I could never have looked this amazing without her help, and she was a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you, Emily!

I hired Emily with Love n Glow to do the wedding makeup for my bridesmaids and I and I am so glad that I did! I had my makeup trial with Emily the morning of my bridal shower so she made me look beautiful for that event and I got endless compliments on my makeup. She even traveled to my apartment to do the trial which made that hectic day a little easier! I had an early morning wedding so we started doing hair and makeup at 5am and Emily was there ready to go when we needed her. Worrying about if and when vendors will get there on the day of the wedding is not something you want to deal with and even having met Emily only once before, I knew she was reliable and had total trust in her being there on time even with such an early call time. One of the big warnings I got with wedding makeup is that some makeup artists apply makeup so heavily that you don't look like yourself. Emily chose such beautiful shades for our makeup and had such a nice balance so that my bridesmaids and I looked AMAZING, especially in the photos, but so natural that you don't look and say, wow, they have a ton of makeup on. A lot of the girls in the party, myself included, don't wear a lot of makeup on an everyday basis and she was still able to pull off this professional look of natural beauty. My mom owns a beauty salon so I can be very picky when it comes to my hair and makeup, but I wouldn't have wanted anyone else doing my makeup on my wedding day. I am so happy I found Emily and hope I have an excuse to have her do my makeup again in the future. :)

I chose Yanelsi as my makeup artist for my wedding, and her work was absolutely stunning! After seeing pictures of her previous work and excellent client reviews, I knew she was the perfect makeup artist for my needs. She made me look absolutely beautiful! She’s also very open to any personal suggestions, and she’s very kind and gentle. She needs to be your go-to makeup artist for everything! You will not be disappointed!

Jessica is an extremely talented makeup artists. Her communication is above average and her professionalism speaks for its self. She came to my house (brought all her own stuff including a chair and makeup light) and did makeup for me and my 4 bridesmades on my wedding day a few weeks ago. We all still talk about how much we loved our makeup and joke we wish we could always have Jessica on call! She arrived on time and worked efficiently to get us all beautified on time. I can’t wait to hire Jessica again for any/all future events...you should do the same! Thanks for making my (our) day more beautiful!!

I hired Renee for my wedding and bridal shower. She did an AMAZING job! She was everything I was looking for. People are still talking about how good I looked. I literally thank God that I found her. I will most definitely be working with Renee again. Her contact information will forever live in my phone. I had a really hard time finding a makeup artist who serviced both Ethnic and Caucasian skin tones. Though her pictures on her website are mostly Caucasian her background is lovely. Renee was trained in NYC, has previously worked NY fashion week, and has done work for Essense magazine. She isn't like the current MUAs who literally cake the makeup on. I love Renee because she enhanced the features I already had. Her style was perfect for me, my girls, and family. My bridesmaids raved about her. Renee ensured she had every color for our skin tones. She even purchased a variety of different pallets to make sure the day was everything I dreamed of. I love working with Renee. She is one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. Her patience is unreal. She allowed me to be me high maintenance and never batted an eye. Although I hired her for her serviced she in the end became a friend. I really do look forward to connecting with her again. She helped make my wedding day magical.

I was the “Best Mate” in my best friend’s wedding and I was responsible for finding a makeup artist for the bridal party. Evan was quick to respond and discuss options for the girls. He worked with the bride to come up with her look and the look for the group. Everyone was beautiful and he made my job very easy!

I decided on gifting a private makeup lesson to my girlfriend for Christmas. Lana was a pleasure to work with starting with excellent communication and following through with a great lesson. She was extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and enthusiastic. Although I feel my girlfriend's ability to apply makeup increased greatly in a short session, we'll certainly be reaching out to Lana again if there's a big event or if my girlfriend wants to learn a new look. Thanks Lana!

    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.
