Ana and her makeup artist were a pleasure to work with! I booked them for my and my wedding party's hair and makeup, and they did an amazing job! They were easy to work with, fun, professional, and, most importantly, we all looked and felt wonderful! We all received tons of compliments! I especially liked how they listened to everyone's requests and worries, and made us all feel at ease. I highly recommend B U 4 Me services!!

Ashley is amazing! She showed up on time and got right to work. She did my wedding makeup. She finished me and my five bridesmaids makeup on time and we all looked flawless. I was worried and didn't want my makeup to look caked on. She did such an amazing job with matching our skin and executing my vision. I was so impressed. She is very talented! If you are looking for a makeup artist I highly recommend Ashley.

Definitely will re-hire this team! They are professional, friendly, fast and talented. Karen accommodated two hair-dos when she only had time for one without sacrificing quality (that girl is super quick!), and Melissa's makeup was exactly what our party wanted. The best part is that our makeup looked fresh all night (over 12 hours) with the standard makeup option. Overall we were extremely satisfied.

    Loved my makeup that she did for my senior prom. I usually don't like my eyebrows being filled in, but tori made them along with the rest of my make up look so natural and made sure it fit my face unlike other makeup artist have done!!

    Kaitlyn did a wonderful job with my daughter and her wedding parties makeup. My daughter looked beautiful, the make up was perfect and lasted the entire evening. When I arrived I noticed how personable Kaitlyn was with all the girls. She went above and beyond what she was hired for and helped the girls with touch ups to their hair and anything else needed. Kaitlyn was an absolute pleasure to work with. She arrived on time and as mentioned stayed until everyone was happy and had everything they needed. Thank you again for helping to make daughters wedding a perfect day!

    Bree Angelique is an inspiring, new, up-and-coming artist! I loved watching her work with my girlfriend. My lady has natural beauty that is without need of makeup, but Bree swooped in and essentuated her features and made her feel like the Queen she is. So glad we worked with her! And they had fun, too! My girlfriend seemed to learn a lot from it. I just sat and watched lol I don’t know anything about makeup. But I know she looked good!

    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.
