"and makeup with a single artist or company. I did one full hair and makeup trial and eyebrow waxing with Noelle and also a follow up to narrow the eye color choices for the big day. Allow me to also say Noelle did the best brow wax of my life, seriously. In the lead up to my wedding, Noelle did a great job of communicating and keeping in touch to answer questions, provide tips, get my look right and help reassure me that my look would be flawless. On my wedding day, it was pouring down rain and we had absolutely no cell signal to send the gate code to vendors coming in, but luckily Noelle followed the plan b directions we sent in case that issue happened. Noelle even battled a flooded bridge that almost left her car stranded on one side of the venue! We're talking a record-breaking flood! Despite the heavy rain, these ladies showed up on time and we were so excited to get started! Noelle worked her makeup magic carefully incorporating my wishes from our previous consultations. The makeup looked flawless and stayed on all night. The colors really went well with my overall look, and it just really came together. I loved looking at my wedding pictures because my skin looked so smooth, my blue eyes popped, and my lip color was lovely. Anna Claire pulled off the exact hairstyles we wanted, and worked with our different hair lengths, textures, and styles. She worked quickly and efficiently. First, even though I had 3 trials in total before and had narrowed things down pretty significantly, with all of the planning us girls never truly did settle on our day of hairstyles until Anna Claire got there. She quickly helped us narrow things down to decide what would look right despite a million things going on in the room. Also, I am VERY fussy about stray aways, and I will have a friggin meltdown if my hair starts to look like it is falling apart halfway through the event. Fortunately, I did not have that problem whatsoever and I am SO happy about that. I just feel undone if it gets like that, but my hair was tight and flawless the entire night even when it would normally start to look ragged after dancing, drinking, sweating, etc. I also could not be happier with how she made the flowers look in my hair - there weren't too many or too few, and they stayed in place all night. I got TONS of compliments on how well the makeup and hair turned out. I have to say that I really gave these ladies a tough time with very specific and fussy requests, and I was frequently not sure of how to explain what I was asking for, but they rose to the occasion! I wanted every detail to be perfect and exactly how I wanted it for my big day, and those wishes were honored. We really appreciate Noelle and Anna Claire and would recommend A Divine Beauty Boutique and Spa to anyone!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
