What a professional owner and staff! One of the artists did the makeup for my girls for my wedding and was very polite from beginning to end! She arrived early and was very observant of each of the girls' looks and made everyone feel comfortable! Even the girls who never wear makeup were very pleased!! I was delighted! The owner, Adrienne, was very responsive and helpful from the very beginning when I inquired about services and signed the contract! I will be using them again and again!

I have worked in the salon/beauty industry for 10 years and I have never met a better makeup artist than Renee!! She is so funny and sweet, I felt like I was hanging out with one of my best friends and almost completely forgot I was actually having a service done! I gave her a general idea of what I was looking for (a modern take on a vampy, old Hollywood glam), but gave her no specifics and she exceeded my expectations! I have gotten my makeup done countless times and have always gotten trendy beauty looks that didn't really compliment my face, and I didn't have that issue with Renee! I even told her I wanted a heavy dark liner underneath, and she understood what I wanted but that it probably wouldn't as flattering on my eye shape and told me all the ways I can achieve that smokier look without weighing my face down. She has such a gentle touch and is so talented and creative, I cannot stop gushing about Renee! If you have any event that you need some glam for, or just want to figure out wtf to do with a contour, or just want to try a new look for yourself and don't know how to do it, RENEE IS YOUR GIRL!

DaNina is an amazingly talented makeup artist! She is very professional and organized. She will travel to you and set up at your home with her own chair and lighting and everything a makeup artist would need! She listens to you and what you want and more than surpasses your expectations. I don't wear makeup often since I work with kids, but that day she came and did my make up test for my wedding in July, I felt like a million bucks. I have never seen my makeup done so flawlessly before. We used airbrush and it really is like second skin. She also gave me tips on taking care of my skin so I can look and feel my best on my wedding day. I love her work and I will definitely be using her services in the future! Oh, and she is definitely hired to do my bridal makeup in July!

Jordan's work is amazing. She's done my makeup too many times to count and I've had several facials. All of my procedures have gone well. She's very knowledgeable and always helpful in teaching me what I should be doing to achieve the same results that she gets when working with me.

I took an introductory makeup up with Makeup by Mack. The class covered makeup tools, makeup application, and makeup selection, with a good amount of time spent on the face and eyes. The class was very thorough and insightful. All of my questions were answered with a demonstration. Overall the class was fun, and non intimidating. I learned about about makeup application and product selection. I can now apply my makeup in 15 minutes like a pro.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

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.
