Naykia was absolutely amazing, my bestfriend i came down to Miami for her 21st birthday. Naykia was in contact with me from the beginning super helpful at answering all of my questions. I have met a lot of makeup artists but no one like Naykia she is super friendly and professional. Her work is flawless me and my friend were getting compliments all night long. Naykia is very talented and i wish she was located in Vancouver Canada i would use her for all my events. Ladies if you are in Miami you need to book with Naykia best make up artist i have worked with. thank you again Naykia. When i get married i will without a doubt be flying you down here!

I hired Martha to do my make-up for my wedding that I was having on the beach. I have never had my make-up done professionally so I was a bit unsure of the results. Martha arrived early to do my make-up, which was awesome because I was afraid from all I have read from other brides who had other make-up artists who did not follow a schedule. Martha arrived with a hair specialist who assisted with placing my headband and veil (unfortunately, I had to redo those because pins were not used to secure anything in place). Both ladies were extremely personable. Once done, I loved my results! I wanted it to look natural and I got just what I asked for. I am still waiting on pictures from my photographer but from my selfies and friends' cameras, the make-up was amazing! I would hire Martha again!

I was getting married and was super nervous about finding someone good. I also needed someone who would come to my house at 7:30 am on a Saturday. Nicole had amazing reviews and she told me 7:30am was not a problem. She was extremely nice and did my hair exactly the way I wanted it. She also did a great job on my makeup. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone who needs a hair stylist or makeup artist. The best if the best........

Ali is nothing but kind and flexible with her clients! She represents her business very very well. Ali is incredibly responsive, which I appreciated because I had to plan my entire wedding in only 3 months and she was so quick to respond with any questions or concerns I had! Her hair and makeup artists, Tania and Rebecca were SO sweet and bubbly! It felt as if my best friends were doing my hair and makeup for my wedding because they made you feel so comfortable and beautiful. Both artists are unbelievably talented. Tania created the most amazing hair style; it was exactly how I envisioned it would look and she totally rocked it! Rebeca is a pro with makeup as well. She covered up spots on my face I thought would be there forever. She catered to all of my bridesmaids makeup desires on what they preferred. I would highly recommend these girls to anyone! All so sweet, kind hearted and amazing at what they do. :)

Glad I hired Michelle as my makeup artist for a party. She was prompt, professional and most importantly had an amazing personality! She asked a lot of questions to make sure I received the makeup job I wanted. I decided to let her do what she does best; letting her use my face as a blank canvas. She chose foundation over airbrush, my eye color, lipstick etc. I am glad I let her choose everything! I looked absolutely spectacular and it was all because I trusted her expertise! She really knows what she is doing! During my makeup application, I loved how she would tell me in detail what she was doing at that moment and what product she was using. She gave me a lot of recommendations! Michelle is definitely one of the best makeup artists in South Florida! Hire her....you won't regret it!

Veronica was wonderful. Pleasant and professional. I've done my makeup with tons of people and I know a lot about application and products and Veronica was very knowledgeable about both. She definitely knows what she's doing. I have dark skin with acne marks and dark circles and she was able to conceal everything and make me glow for my photoshoot with my daughter. I got exactly what I asked for plus she told me what she was doing and shared what products she was using. She was on time and prepared with all of her professional equipment. I plan to use her for all of my upcoming occasions.

My experience with Emily was AMAZING!! I hired her for a Christmas Party and she arrived on time, was professional, and my makeup looked beautiful. She also did some loose curls on my hair and they held up all night. I received so many compliments throughout the night. In addition, she also did my wife’s makeup and it was light, natural and very elegant. You can tell she loves what she does and I will be using her again this upcoming week for another Christmas Party. If you are looking for a makeup artist that has the skills, professionalism, and reliability... then Emily is your choice. Thank you Em!!

All around terrific talented artist with a great personality that shines through her work. She was one of the makeup artists for A CELEBRATION OF LIFE “8” fashion show presented by Pat Casterlow and Friends. There were over 20 models participating in the show and the makeup for all of them was simply beautiful! She arrived early in order to set up her work area and be ready to start working so the entire process moved smoothly. She worked with a calming presence and personality that contributed to making the experience fun and festive! She’s a true talent.

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!

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.
