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 enjoyed working with Reem Kara. She was extremely patient with myself and all of my bridesmaids. She was able to complete 10 faces in record time and everyone looked stunning. She perfectly matched the makeup for every face and I had "Every" skin tone as bride maids. She was very beautiful herself as well, She looked like a makeup artist. She was prepared and her personality was so contagious. Right before I was on my way out to walk down the aisle, she rubbed lotion on my arms and told me to stand up tall and not to slouch. I made a perfect decision hiring Reem Kara and she will see me again very soon.

Cori Templin with Twisted Bristles was outstanding! I could not have been happier with anyone else. She was such a delight to work with. She painted my whole family's faces for a Halloween parade and did a phenomenal job! Everyone was asking who our makeup artist was! I cannot recommend her enough. She is super talented and I do believe she is capable of creating anything with her art work! If your trying to decide on someone, stop thinking about it and just hire her! You won't be disappointed! I'm sad I have to wait a whole year for next years Halloween parade to have her paint our faces again!

Keka did an excellent job with my hair and makeup for my wedding yesterday. She also did my bridal party and everyone was happy with the result. Keka also did my engagement photo shoot and this served as my trial to see if I would like her style. I immediately got along with her. She was professional and easygoing and her warm personality made a stressed out bride feel at ease. When we did my bridal hair and makeup trial, I had 2nd thoughts about my hair and she immediately offered to do a 2nd hair trial at no cost. Her clients' satisfaction and happiness come first for her and I really appreciate that. I would hire Keka again in a heartbeat and so should you! Thanks for making me beautiful on my special day, Keka!

I did a trail for my wedding makeup with Isca. I've never really had my makeup done and I wear a little makeup to work so I didn't want to look like I belonged in a coffin. I was so happy with the way she did my makeup I hired her to do my makeup for my wedding this Sept. Her work is amazing and I would highly recommend her to everyone. She is also super sweet and easy to get a hold of, she always responds promptly. If you are looking for a makeup artist look no further than Isca!

Brittany is one of the most talented makeup artists I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her passion derives not only from her love of makeup but also her love of making people feel beautiful. Moreover, she always has the best new products on the market. A part of me wants to keep Fox in Cotton my little beauty secret!

    Man let me tell u this girl saved my life. My previous makeup artist stood me up for a very important photo shoot and I had NOONE. I found miss Nicholle on Facebook and called her and asked for her availability hoping for a miracle. When I say sis got there in 20 minutes! I will forever be greatful for her saving me, we were a little pressed for time being that I was in a time crunch but she worked it out like a dream. Thanks Nicholle! I’ll be calling to book u soon.

    I had the pleasure of having Ayanah of Finesse By Royal do our makeup and lashes for a photo shoot and birthday celebration. She came prepared with makeup fitting four different skin tones which she matched us perfectly. She was extremely professional, punctual and attentive paying attention to details from each client. Ayanah of Finesse By Royal has a true calling as a talented makeup artist. I highly recommend her and I plan to use her in the future.

    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.
