I was looking for a Makeup Artist to do my makeup for my sons's wedding. I booked a trial appointment with her based on her outstanding reviews. She arrived promptly and did an amazing job. I then booked her for the wedding and as expected, she arrived promptly at our appointment time. Bri has a cheerful and friendly personality. She made me feel very comfortable and did exactly what I wanted. She was perfect! I would definitely hire her again! Thanks Bri!

Courtney was awesome! I've gotten my makeup done by different artists and I never really love the outcome. She did n excellent job in keeping me look like me on my wedding day. She was super professional, nice and attentive to what I wanted from the beginning. I look forward to working with her in the future.

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!

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!

Tatiana was not only very professional and talented but also made it a priority that her clients felt special and beautiful. I was flying into Boca Raton for a wedding and needed to find a makeup and hairstylist to assist myself and 5 of my family members get ready. From the beginning of the process Tatiana was honest and responsive and we were all happy with our final looks. She was a perfectionist with our hair and our makeup was stunning and flawless. Even after a whole night dancing our makeup looked just as fresh as it did during the morning afternoon it was done. I highly recommend Tatiana for anyone looking for a hair and makeup artist for a special occasion.

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!

    I am so grateful that Devon was my hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding! From the beginning, she worked with me to decide on a style that would fit my personal style and wedding theme and then she scheduled two trial sessions with me pre-wedding to ensure there were no surprises and no hiccups the day of the wedding. Not only that but she worked with me on getting my make up just right. This was important to me because I never wear make up and so I didn't want to end up with something that was overbearing for my personal style, yet was appropriately classy for the occasion. She also helped to create a beautiful faux flower arrangement in my hair using bits of flowers that my florist had given me. And she gave my matron-of-honor a beautiful up-do that was complementary to mine and beautiful in its own right. Throughout my time working with Devon, she was professional and friendly, punctual and competent in her work. In the end, I had both a hair style and make up that left me feeling radiant and gorgeous - exactly how a bride wants to feel on her wedding day! I would highly recommend Devon to any other bride in the Palm Beach County area. Thank you so much Devon for all that you did to help make my wedding day extra special!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
