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.

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 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.

He was prompt, and even early! Had top quality makeup products and even provided makeup tips and a take home care set. The makeup stayed on beautifully for the photoshoot, and is still on hours later, and still looks freshly done. He is my favorite makeup artist. Well done!

As I was looking for a makeup artist to do my makeup for my upcoming wedding I was contacted by me alone and I was very happy to see that she offered a rate of $45 for services. I was very much interested in booking her but of course a trial is needed beforehand to make sure you're getting exceptional services. I was informed that a trial would be $50 which was more than what was quoted for services on the day needed . I myself, is very much educated in the cosmetology business and know for a fact that is not how services work. I'm sure Aline is very much a great artist but maybe just not up for my standards in professionalism. Thanks, Wendy 👍

Michelle was incredible! The month leading up to my wedding was filled with appointment after appointment, and she took the time to figure out a date that worked best for me and my family for a makeup trial. She made us all look so beautiful on my wedding day, and we are forever grateful! She was a pleasure to work with and knew exactly what we wanted! If I had it my way, she would be my personal makeup artist every day. 💜💜

Sakeenah at Supreme Makeup & Hair Designs is a very talented, professional, punctual, responsive, and friendly make up artist and hair stylist. She exceeded my expectations for the look I was going for and I was extremely satisfied and pleased with the outcome. She is very easy to work with and listens to her client's input, working together until they achieve the desired look. I was visiting out of state for a theme party and was so happy I was able to find a make up artist and hair stylist who could travel to my hotel and get me all ready. I highly recommend Supreme Makeup & Hair Designs for those seeking a professional who delivers. Her prices are reasonable, her services are fantastic, and you will look AMAZING!!!

Sakeenah is friendly,professional, hard working and punctual. She was patient and informative. She went over and beyond being a wedding hairdresser and makeup artist. I didn’t have a clue of what I wanted and she picked everything according to my complexion correctly. My makeup was flawless and lasted all day. She completed my lace front and styled my hair so beautifully. My dress was wrinkled she made sure she brought a steamer to fix it, I didn’t have hair decoration and she had that to complete my work. She made my day the best.

Veronica was amazing!! She asked for a few photos so she could prepare the correct color matching for me. As an African American woman, this is very important, and she did an exquisite job!!! She listened to the direction of my photographer for the shoot, and she took direction, as well as ensured her own creative agency to ensuring the best look! I absolutely loved my shoot!!!!! I would use Veronica again, and hire her as my personal makeup artist if I could!!!!!

Supreme is exactly what was recieved when recieving hair and makeup from Shakeena on my wedding date. We began speaking a year prior and every so often since then we would touch base and she always knew who I was and what it was I needed and everything. The day of she was so amazing. Celebrating with us till the very last minute. We spent all day with her my girls and I and at the end we were sad she was not coming to the wedding with us. With all the hair types and skin tones she never missed a beat. We all looked absolutely stunning. Most of us including myself as the bride had never worn makeup and she made me feel so comfortable and made me look exquisite. I would never do makeup again unless it is by her. She is no longer just a make up artist to me but a friend. Thank you

I sought out a make up artist at the last minute as I had a filming to do for a virtual conference while I was in the Orlando area (from NJ). I found Saray because I search for top rated and I was so lucky to have found her! I don’t wear much makeup in general and was a bit nervous about looking not like myself. But Saray was amazing!!!! I looked like a better version of myself and it was perfect for being on camera and looking professional. I highly recommend Saray - not only for her wonderful talents but because she is so kind and easy to work with.

I am a 54-year-old mother-of-the-groom who was desperately looking for help in an area I don't live or barely know. I needed a good makeup artist for our son's wedding in Orlando this past weekend. I live near Ft. Lauderdale and had no idea who to contact to help my youngest son's girlfriend and myself. I did a quick Google search, which directed me to this app, and her name was the first popping up. Frantically, I contacted Veronica late at night two weeks before the wedding, and she replied almost immediately! We talked over the phone, send her a picture of the makeup I wanted, and included a picture of myself. We had to do this remotely, and I knew I was dealing with a highly professional and knowledgeable person based on her feedback and honesty. We set up the date, and she came to the B&B were renting near the wedding venue. She was punctual, exact-to-the-second sharp. I asked Veronica if she knew of a good hairdresser who could help, and she recommended two but helped me choose based on what was telling her. Veronica listens, which is rare these days and sets apart professionals from non-professionals! She is nothing short of AMAZING! She is exceptionally talented, friendly, caring, warm, and takes pride in her work. Her main goal IS to make sure that YOU feel BEAUTIFUL! From the beginning, everything was effortless. Phone calls and emails were returned promptly, and she took her time to listen to what I wanted. I felt so beautiful on my son's wedding day thanks to them! Ladies, save yourselves energy, time and headaches, and trust Veronica! She knows what she's doing!
