I was nervous, mainly because I'm so shy at first. Ana had a wonderful personality that put all my shyness at ease. We had a great time talking and laughing. She was extremely professional, on time, and most importantly, we both loved our hair and makeup! Our wedding was several hours after hair/makeup and they both held up wonderfully! I would recommend B U 4 Me Services to any one looking for hair and/or makeup services!

Wham! Bam! Glam!

We booked Aline for both hair and makeup for a wedding. She was amazing and did a fantastic job of makeup on both young and older face. The hair updo's were fabulous exactly what we wanted. She was quick and efficient with a lovely manner. If we are ever back in Orlando and needing hair and makeup I would not hesitate to contact her.

Chic Desires was my hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding on 12/13/14 at the Leu Gardens in Orlando. She did an amazing job! A few things went wrong the morning of the wedding, like me giving her the wrong address to my hotel which gave us a late start. Even after that, Brandi remained professional and friendly. She took her time and did an excellent job! Her positive attitude and calmness says a lot about her character as a person. I was coming from out of state, so I had no issues with setting up the place and time to meet with her. She always responded timely to my emails and text messages. I really enjoyed working with her. If she lived closer to me, she would definitely be my hair and make-up stylist!!

Michelle came right on time (even a little early)! She never gave me anything to worry about, which was important considering it was my wedding day. She did my hair and makeup. I was very picky about who I hired because I don't like the typical wedding makeup look I kept seeing on different websites and didn't want to look like I was preparing for a 90's glamour shot. I wanted someone who understood the latest trends, highlighting, who could get my brows on fleek, Kylie Jenner style, etc! She was the one, she "get's it"! The pictures speak for themselves, her work is fabulous and I absolutely loved the beach waves. She was also able to add my clip-ins and did my flower crown and veil for me, which was wonderful. She was very fun and enjoyable to work with. I would absolutely highly recommend her. I wish I lived locally as I would use her for every special occasion.

I recently hired Karmel Design Team for hair and makeup for my wedding last week. From beginning to end I was impressed! Karen and her team of artists were not only professional but made my day so easy. Before I even came out to do hair and makeup everything was set up and ready to go! Karen and the girls even had mimosas poured and ready for me and my family. Since I already had so much on my plate it was such a relief to just sit back and relax while she worked her magic. We already did a trial, which went off without a hitch and once she started I immediately was able to relax for the first time. When she was done it looked even better than I had imagined! We couldn't stop taking pics, it was beautiful! My hair and makeup stayed flawless ALL NIGHT! I really owe Karen and her team a huge thank you for making everyone so beautiful and picture perfect! I would recommend Karen and her team to anybody that wants that flawless glamour look for their wedding day :) so so so happy! Thank you girls!

Leanna puts 110% into anything she does and this is evident in her makeup business. Leanna works hard to ensure that her clients are completely satisfied with their makeup and feel like the queen that they are. Personally, Leanna is my go to MUA because of the quality of her work and her affordable prices. Her bubbly personality makes the experience very enjoyable. I have never left her chair disappointed. If Leanna is nearby 20 years from now, I’ll book her in a heartbeat.

Claudia is a great professional. She interviews you beforehand, discusses all the possibilities and then she does exactly what you ask for. Her work is flawless and she makes you feel at home, at ease and simply BEAUTIFUL. I was pregnant when she did my makeup for a shooting session and I could not be happier with the turnout. My makeup looked naturally angelical.

Joanna went above and beyond to keep me happy. Answered any questions or concerns I had, went over the products she would be using, remained with a smile on her face as she applied my makeup, and took her time so it could be done to perfection. I felt brand new, with the way she did my eyebrows, eyeshadow, a gorgeous natural look and everything else. She did an excellent job and I had a wonderful experience. I would recommend her services to anyone!

Jana did my make up for my trash the dress photo shoot that I did on New Smyrna Beach. Jana was amazing! She is so sweet and kind and certainly knows what she's doing with makeup. She is very knowledgeable with the products that she uses. Jana made my skin look flawless and was kind enough to travel from Sanford to NSB. She makes it look so easy and the makeup photographed beautifully. I was so thrilled with how everything turned out!

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.
