I was looking for a Makeup Artist to do my makeup for my sons's wedding. I booked a trial appointment with her based on her outstanding reviews. She arrived promptly and did an amazing job. I then booked her for the wedding and as expected, she arrived promptly at our appointment time. Bri has a cheerful and friendly personality. She made me feel very comfortable and did exactly what I wanted. She was perfect! I would definitely hire her again! Thanks Bri!

I hired Courtney and her team to do hair and makeup for my bridal party for my wedding on June 24th at the Delray Sands Resort in Highland Beach, Florida. The entire team was amazing. Everyone absolutely LOVED their hair and makeup. Not only do these girls know how to make a gal pretty, but they are the nicest people EVER!! I felt like they were all my friends, and they were just as excited for my big day as my bridesmaids were. I could not have been happier with their services. I wish they lived in Chicago so I could hang out with them! Haha. Thanks girls for making the morning of my wedding day stress-free and fun. xoxo

I have used Aura numerous times. Every time I am more and more impressed! The first time I met her I was doing a photo shoot for special effects make up. She transformed me from model to zombie, in not only the alloted time frame, but I was the star of the night. Everyone loved my makeup! The next time I used Aura she prepared me for another photo shoot for a vintage pinup. My makeup was amazing, she used airbrush and she also applied false lashes (and they didn't fall off once!) Aura also was my makeup artist for my baby shower. She did my make up using the airbrush and I looked flawless for my big event. I was running late and yet she still created an outstanding look for me. The last time I used Aura (until I have another event) was for my maternity shoot. I actually went to the doctors office in the morning and was told I have 5 hours to go into the hospital (emergency c section)! I hadn't done my shoot yet and really wanted to so I called Aura. She was there and applied my makeup again within the hour! Because of her I was able to have my maternity shoot done and I can't thank her enough (this is my first child). Aura is always on time, very professional, very flexible, and more importantly loves what she does. She is also extremely well priced. I will continue to call Aura and recommend her to my friends.

I had reached out to Roxy as an emergency because my original makeup artist had an emergency. So you can imagine I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to get my make up done for my engagement shoot. Roxy replied immediately and saved the day. I loved the makeup she really understood what I waned and I felt very comfortable. Thank you again for your amazing work. I hope to work with you again. 😘

Mafe arrived punctual to our appointment. She was very professional and friendly. The make up was amazing! Super well defined and clean. Flawless, really. She is professionally stocked up on colors/ tones. The foundation matched me perfectly (I've had my share "pancake" experiences with other artists...) The makeup itself lasted the whole night, only lipstick retouch (drinks and dinner). I was hesitant on fake lashes but, thanks to Mafe now I swear by them for big events. She has done my hair in different occasions and I have also been very pleased with her hair-do work. I don't like writing reviews... but her work is excellent, from the make-up itself to the customer service; and it deserves the time to give it recognition. You won't regret giving her a call for your next makeup session.

Olivia, went above and beyond in every single facet. Even though I hired her to be my makeup artist (after seeing how well she does her own makeup in person, I am very picky btw) she was there for me as a Bride in ways I didn’t anticipate. She helped me in any way possible. Her professionalism is a rarity to find and I was completely surprised by how organized and transparently thorough she was. Her personality is a joy and she really made me feel and look like a Queen. I was truly, a beautiful bride because she listened to what I wanted to feel and look like. Thank you, Olivia. You are exceptional!

Samantha is one of the BEST makeup artists that I’ve ever come across! As a model in south Florida I’ve had to deal with many artists but she is truly one of the top artists. She’s very professional and a perfectionist, but at the same time fun and a total sweetheart.

Jody was an awesome makeup artist. She was prompt to respond to my questions, texts and emails. She worked around my bride's schedule for the trial and was very attentive, understanding and open-minded to my bride's needs and wants. She was at the meeting place on time with all her equipment. My bride was very satisfied with the final product. I will definitely recommend her as a makeup artist.

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.
