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.

I can’t rave enough about Supreme Hair and makeup. The day of my wedding Sakeenah and Jasmine arrived on time and set up a professional makeup work station. My maid of honor and I relaxed and drank mimosas while the girls got to work on us. It was a wonderful experience, and worth every penny! Sakeenah did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup. I felt beautiful and the makeup lasted all day. Sakeenah is a very talented artist, and is also a lovely person. Do not hesitate to book Supreme Hair and Makeup for your event.. you will be very glad you did!

I can’t say enough about Amanda! She is a true hardworking professional who is an artist with hair and makeup. I do not wear much makeup aside from a little eyeshadow, liner and mascara. For my wedding day I wanted something special. I wanted the pictures to really stand out from my standard look. I have oily skin and was really worried about it staying put all night. I chose the Runaway bride package with airbrush makeup, lashes and hair. I will say, it takes time, be sure to factor that in! This is not a fast process- but a complete transformation that will make you feel beautiful and pampered. My makeup and hair lasted ALL night and came off easily once I was home using makeup remover. I never broke out or had to retouch. My skin was like satin (FAR from what it normally looks like!)- I absolutely LOVED it! My pictures will be a permanent reminder of how lovely Amanda made me look on my special day. Thank you!

I would definitely recommend Gabrielle to anyone. She was very professional from the minute I spoke to her on the phone to book a session. She followed up as it came close to my event. The day if she was on time. The is extremely organized and sanitary, which I found very impressive. She is very friendly, professional, and outgoing. Gabrielle listened to what I wanted, and she exceeded my expectations. I was extremely happy with how my make up turned out. Usually my makeup does not last all day. By the end o the night it's running half way down my face, and I'm shinier than a polished bowling ball. But for the first time my makeup lasted all day, literally! If you are looking for a real deal makeup artist, hire Gabrielle you will not be disappointed.

Savannah did amazing job with my makeup for my maternity shoot. She takes a lot of pride in her work and is very professional. Not only is her work speaks herself but she has a very down to earth personality which is very hard to find these days when looking for a professional make up artist. I love her work, quality and personality that I booked her again to do my make up and her for my baby shower in May! And let’s not forget to mention, her pricing is very reasonable 😃 will definitely use her for future events
