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.

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.

Courtney did a great job with my makeup working on a tight timeline for social event. I was very satisfied with my makeup and hair. She asked what makeup I normally wear, and asked for images of preferred styles to get a better understanding of my makeup wants and needs. Her service was prompt, professional and high quality. I highly recommend Courtney for all the reasons listed above.

After speaking with her on the phone during the bridal consultation, i was planning to book her to do my makeup for my wedding. Then the next day she said she was unwilling to do my makeup on the big day. I’m disappointed with the service.

I speak all over the world and use this service for professionals when I'm in town speaking or promoting an event. I was thrilled with the work Anthony did for my makeup and hair. His team also provided photography services for my event. They arrived punctually and were finished right on time for me to attend the first phase of my event. The result was a successful event with great shots I can use in my future marketing efforts. I highly recommend Anthony and his team. When I'm in Atlanta again, I will definitely use his services.

I hired Kalena and Refined Glam to do makeup for myself and 9 special guests (friends and family) who came from out of state to attend my 50th birthday celebration. Kalena did an amazing job listening to each person and giving them what they wanted while maintaining a 1920s glam look. I highly recommend her and would use her services again.

Anthony (makeup) and Star (hair) did a fantastic job. Anthony was extremely communicative and responsive throughout the planning and booking stages. He asked many questions to ensure we were aligned on needs/expectations and arranged for a phone call in advance to ask a few additional questions about my plan for my hair. He and Star arrived on time, quickly got to work setting up and had me finished early. Their work was on point with what I had asked for and very professional. My friends and I enjoyed chatting with them while they worked - both were very friendly and fun to chat with. I would definitely recommend their services and use them again in the future.

Davisha is absolutely amazing. She is a very talented MUA, and am so glad I trusted her with my big day. The quality she provides is undeniable that she has been doing this for some time, and has been perfecting her work over the years. She is always prompt with responses, and didn't overcharge me for her services! Some MUA will take advantage of brides just because of the "wedding" title, but I didn't get that from this Vonshae Beauty. Davisha is also excellent at matching makeup to all complexion types. She spent the same amount of care and consideration on my bridesmaid as she did me (the bride) so we were all flawless! And that was important. Just give her enough time to complete her work. She also came prepared with all the equipment she needed and listened to my requests! Overall, I was very satisfied and felt like a princess for a special day! I would book with her again for any/all important days. Take a look at her portfolio and let her work speak for itself. You will not be disappointed.
