Ana was great - so much personality, she made the day fun. I had bride makeup done, and it looked GORGEOUS! She also did my hair, and I didn't know what I wanted specifically, but she did a good job interpreting what I did want :) She also did my daughter's hair and makeup (light makeup and a side sweeping braid) which was adorable, and my daughter felt like a princess. My mom's makeup was also done beautifully. Would definitely recommend!

Aline did my daughter's hair and make up for prom. My daughter showed her photos of hair and make up that she liked and Aline did them exactly as the photos. Aline was very courteous and professional. I would most certainly use and recommend Aline's services again.

Sakeenah did wonderful work with my stepdaughter’s hair and makeup for prom. It needed to be a long-lasting look and an early appointment time, and Sakeenah shared her thoughts on a style in advance. Very professional and personable!

Chic Desires was my hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding on 12/13/14 at the Leu Gardens in Orlando. She did an amazing job! A few things went wrong the morning of the wedding, like me giving her the wrong address to my hotel which gave us a late start. Even after that, Brandi remained professional and friendly. She took her time and did an excellent job! Her positive attitude and calmness says a lot about her character as a person. I was coming from out of state, so I had no issues with setting up the place and time to meet with her. She always responded timely to my emails and text messages. I really enjoyed working with her. If she lived closer to me, she would definitely be my hair and make-up stylist!!

She is gorgeous inside and out. I have had so many issues finding the correct shade match in concealors and foundations. She took her time and found out the exact match. Any look you are going for she is able to achieve. Also I have problem skin and I never feel comfortable having makeup removed but Dee can talk you into anything (lol) she helped me get the right products for my skin. I happy I met her- she will keep you flawless!!! You will never go to another makeup artist!!!

Bri was absolutely amazing. I had a wedding makeup trial, facial, and brow wax. During the makeup trial I had a minor melt down from wedding complications. Bri was so supportive and professional, offering her services and even providing other contacts. HIGHLY recommend her for any beauty needs. She herself is beautiful inside and out!

    Loved working with Nadine! I had no problem getting in touch with her, she was prompt, personable, and did an amazing job on the brides makeup! She had a large inventory of supplies with every color pallet you could imagine that could suit anyone's makeup request. Another bonus is that Nadine is extremely cleanly, no makeup brush was used twice and disposable lipstick and mascara applicators were used and promptly thrown away. I have nothing but good things to say about Nadine, it would be a mistake not to hire her for your makeup needs.

    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.
