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.

Experience and whole process was wonderful. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find someone to do my prom makeup but then I found Kimberly and I'm so glad I did. I showed her some pictures of makeup I liked and she was able to create one and it was beautiful.

Keka was amazing! I could not have asked for a better Makeup and Hair experience for my wedding. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about what would looks would be ideal with my dress. Not only did she have great ideas, but she was so flexible. On my wedding day, one of my bridesmaids hair styles needed to be changed four different times. Keka was so calm and worked with her as we tried to find the right look for her-- we finally found the right one! Keka had a large amount of makeup products for a range of skin tones and skin types. My wedding makeup stayed on throughout the entire night! I danced all night and we had wedding pictures outside in the New York City heat in June. She was phenomenal! I could not have asked for a better experience.

Anthony was available on short notice to do my 14-year-old daughters makeup for her 8th graduation party. My daughter was very nervous, as this was her first time wearing a full face of makeup, but Anthony made her very comfortable. Anthony’s application was age appropriate, natural, classy, and Dad approved. Anthony included a lip-gloss and makeup sponge for touch ups, but her make up lasted all night; no touch-ups required. She received so many compliments from her friends (and their Moms). She was truly the belle of the ball.

Tai-lo did an amazing job with my makeup looks for my four-day West-African traditional wedding. Each day, she came prepared to transform me into a QUEEN. Whether I was wearing African garments or my white gown, each makeup look was unique and tailored to the theme of that day. What I really loved about working with Tai-lo was her work quality and professionalism. She was consistently punctual and kept her word in everything we discussed. She uses top of the line cosmetics and it showed since I had to keep my makeup on all day and it was still in tact through sweat, tears, and many many hugs! I was a bit skeptical using Thumbstack to book a makeup artist for an event of this magnitude but I am so glad I came across her and will definitely be using her services again in the future!

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!

    There aren't enough superlatives to describe the job Marissa did for my daughter's wedding! Marissa was an absolute joy to work with. She did our makeup for the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. From the very first time we met Marissa at the makeup trial; my daughter, her maid of honor and I knew we had picked the right artist. She listened to what the bride wanted and made her look so beautiful while keeping my daughter natural looking. This was exactly what she wanted. Marissa worked with us on times and locations to make it all easier for us. The day of the wedding Marissa was there from 9:00 until 7:00 to make sure everyone had perfect makeup through all of the pictures, the ceremony and the reception. She completed a marathon makeup session that included the bride, 4 bridesmaids, a Grandmom, mother of the bride and mother of the groom. She was patient with all of the craziness of the wedding day and actually calmed us down! I highly recommend Marissa! She listens to what you want and does not stop until you are completely satisfied. Thank you Marissa for making this wedding so special.

    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.
