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 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.

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.

Irena is a talented makeup artist. She provided makeup for six of us for an engagement party. She works fast and required little set up space. Her makeup is beautiful and she adjusted the looks for each of us to suit our requests. Irena is reliable and friendly and her prices are fair. We all enjoyed working with her to make this special day a little more glamorous! I highly recommend!!

I was in need of an emergency as my daughter was taking Senior Pictures and the makeup artist we had made an appointment with was no call no show. My daughter is as so upset and crying. I decided to google makeup artists and found J.Jamal Beauty. I sent a message that I needed someone as soon as possible! She responded right away and met me at my home fully prepared with all of her makeup tools. She did a wonderful job asking questions about the photo shoot and did her makeup accordingly. My daughter looked beautiful and she was so happy! I would recommend her to everyone and plan to use her again in the near future. Thank you again for doing such a work job and at the last minute as well.

I was nervous about getting my hair and makeup done by someone other than myself for prom, but booking an appointment with Crista ended up being a great and lucky decision! She was so kind, made me feel comfortable, and best of all made me feel beautiful! I truly don’t think you can find a better makeup artist than her, so for that I highly recommend. Thank you Crista!

I had a short-notice need for a professional makeup artist for a video shoot. Ozzy checked all the boxes you'd wish for a perfect partner: she responded instantly, asked thorough questions about my needs, showed up on time, and, best of all, gifted me with the perfect look that will let me look back at these videos with joy and pride. She has incredible knowledge, talent, and expertise in makeup that looks natural on the one hand but has just that little "extra touch" as being in front of the camera lens requires an additional edge. My makeup held up all day, and I will certainly come back to Ozzie for any needs and any days I need to look flawless and stunning alike. Highly recommended!

Outside of looking and feeling beautiful, this was THE BEST experience I’ve ever had! I traveled out of town for a work gala and reached out to Gabby two hours prior to my event in hopes that I could find a makeup artist last minute. She responded immediately and was able to accommodate me the same day! My makeup come out absolutely flawless (transformation/pictures attached). I also asked Gabby to do my hair completely unplanned AFTER she arrived and she was able to not only style it but also fix my clip in hair extensions that were ripping apart. Gabby, I cannot thank you enough for being super resourceful, easy to talk to, and for making me feel amazing. I was getting compliments left and right the whole night. I highly recommend hiring Gabby!
