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!

She did my hair & makeup for my quinceañera and it came out exactly how I wanted and was beautiful. It lasted throughout the whole night. None of my baby hairs came out even though the morning of my quinceIt's was raining and it was very humid outside. And my makeup lasted the night and I sweated a lot that night and went outside and got a little wet but my makeup still look like it did the morning she did. I also had a surprise dance with a lot of handstands and quick movements and my hair didn't move or get messed. If I ever have another occasion where I needed my hair & makeup did I wouldn't even think about going to another person

Dee is such a talented makeup artist. As a HUGE makeup enthusiast I'm always hesitant to get my makeup done by someone else. I was surely not disappointed. She explained every step and rational for product choice and expertly executed my birthday look. I received compliments all night long. Her artistry ranges from natural "no makeup" looks to full on red carpet glam and for my birthday I got a look right in the middle. What I can certainly appreciate is her cleanliness. No one wants there makeup done with dirty brushes and germs everywhere. I will definitely and without a doubt book Dee again for my next event.

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

Christine did my makeup for my wedding, as well as some of the wedding party. She traveled to my home before the wedding for a makeup trial, and really listened to what I wanted. We made some small adjustments, and on the day of the wedding it was perfect. She arrived early to set up, and would ask if the pressure was OK while she was applying makeup, and was very easy to get along with. This was the first time I didn’t get a headache while somebody else applied my eyeliner. My bridal party looked stunning, and I’ve never felt so beautiful in my life. The reception lasted well after midnight, and my face still held up longer than I did.

I found Evaniss on social media so I decided to have them do my makeup and hair for my wedding. My bridesmaids as well. Elena was my stylist and she did an amazing job. I had a vision in mind and she brought it to life. My photos look amazing and my hair and makeup lasted all night. I will definitely go back to Elena for any special occasion I need hair and makeup for. My bridal party also looked great!

I had hair and makeup services done for myself and my 3 bridesmaids and we were all very happy with the outcome. I had extensions sewn in a few days prior and they were able to work with them and provide the same hairstyle I wanted. All of the girls were very polite and willing to do hair services for 2 of the little girls that also wanted their hair done. Overall, I would recommend blongo to anyone who is looking to get services done.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.
