My trial run with Tiara was a breath of fresh air. She's so easy to work with and is very detailed in her work. She's a great listener and tweaked my hair and makeup look until we got a better idea of what the game plan is for my wedding day looks. She's also totally okay with any last minute changes on anything. I really appreciated her flexible approach and positive attitude, especially since the last two trial runs I had were not very successful ones and one of the stylists got aggravated with me. Being very inexperienced in communicating hair and makeup looks to stylists, I appreciated that she was able to understand my style of 1920's retro timeless look without me having actually said those words. I know I can count on Tiara to make sure my mind is at ease about my hair and makeup needs on my wedding day and I know she'll make me look the most beautiful I've ever been on my very special day! I definitely recommend Tiara Styles for your Bridal look needs. As a definite plus, she also happens to be an amazing human being and very fun to be around, and I'm so happy I met her!

Jen was FANTASTIC. She did makeup for myself and two friends for a Girls Night Out and listened to what we wanted, but also gave suggestions. Very friendly, kept the conversation going, and made all of us feel very comfortable. Her work is on point and even being very particular about my makeup (I’m always worried I won’t like what gets done), I felt gorgeous and fierce all night! I would 100% recommend Beauty to you by Jen to anyone. She does beautiful soft natural romantic makeup but she can absolutely do fierce, rocker chick makeup that rivals the Hollywood look!

I cannot thank Donna enough for the amazing wedding makeup she did for me and my bridesmaids. Not only was the makeup itself amazing, but she went well beyond her role to help ensure everything went smoothly on the special day. I would highly recommend her for makeup for any event. I honestly am so grateful for everything that she assisted with on the wedding day!

Jessica was my MUA for my wedding. Her service was excellent. My makeup was flawless! She even stayed around to touch things up when I became teary eyed during my photo session. If you need a MUA for a wedding, homecoming prom, or just because, Jessica will definitely take care of you!

Let me start by saying I do not wear makeup. I attended an event that *required* makeup and booked Whitney to do my makeup. My skin was raidiant, the makeup felt light and it lasted until the next day! She did such an amazing job she literally made me want to start wearing makeup daily

Courtney is an eye brow expert! When I first came to her she put me in brow rehab after having a bad experience somewhere else with a brow wax. After the second time seeing her I felt like my brows were back to normal and better than ever. She recently tinted my eyebrows which was amazing. They looked fuller and natural. I trust her 100% with my brows and I am even going to use her as a makeup artist for my engagement photos. She is such a professional and anything she touches turns out fabulous!

Brittany was absolutely fantastic! Very professional, friendly, and organized. I have been to her for multiple services including makeup and eyelash extensions. I was a little hesitant about getting eyelash extensions at first, but Brittany explained the process and after care in great detail....AND THEY LOOK AMAZING!! She listened to my concerns and worked with them. My lash extensions were defined yet natural! She really takes her time and it shows! If you are looking for quality service and product, go to her. Hands down. She is the best!

In my experience of working with Jackie, I have not only learned about the make up itself, but I've also learned about me! What do I mean? Well, I never knew that I had red tones in my skin complexion which enable a beautil bronze glow when the lighter blush is applied. Mrs. Jackie is not only an amazing make up artist but she a women of empowerment; knowledge is power and that's how she enabled me! Thank you for your kindness and warm embrace making me feel like a part of your family. God loves you and He is specially fond of you if you are graced with her presence and transformed at the hand of her skill! Shalom.

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.

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 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.
