For me, trying to find the right makeup artist was one of the hardest things to do for my wedding, especially when you don't wear a full face of makeup all the time and every trial with a new artist cost money. If those things are true for you too, let me assure you that Bridal by Lerin is the right one for you! From the moment I met Lerin I knew her personality was one I would love to have around my friends and family on the wedding day, she's bubbly, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about her craft. She also listened and asked what I wanted (even though I don't know a lot about makeup) and actually gave me what I wanted! After our trial I loved the looked but once she left I noticed a few other things I wanted to change, I sent her that feedback and like an absolute professional she took those changes and gave me exactly the look I wanted for my wedding, even better she slayed my bridesmaids faces as well! When she wasn't making them laugh, they were taking a million selfies because they loved their looks so much and my bridesmaids were African-American and Caucasians so to find a make-up artist who does both really well was another plus for me. Please hire Lerin for your next wedding or event! She is exactly what you need to look like your best self on your wedding day! I'll definitely continue to work with her for big events and parties I'm attending like birthdays, holidays and other weddings. Thank you so much Lerin! I'm so excited to see how all of my pictures turned out with your golden touch!

I could not be more grateful for finding such amazing makeup artists for my wedding. I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to makeup (I have done my own makeup for all of my brothers weddings instead of getting it done) but she made me feel so beautiful without being over done. My main concern was if she'd be able to cover up a few blemish scars and she completely did! My bridesmaids​ and I were beyond pleased and would use her a million times over. Thank you so much !!!

This was my first experience using Thumbtack and was very pleased with the service I received, especially since I needed someone to work with me within 24 hours of my posting. Patricia was highly professional --- responded to the request quickly and then arrived promptly, discussed her approach, and listened to what I had to say --- and delivered beautifully. I requested her services again two days later for another event when a make-up artist bailed out at the last minute. I truly appreciated her ability to create two different make-up styles that were appropriate for the separate events. Her airbrush device conked out but with her techniques, it did not appear to be necessary. She took her time in the make-up application to ensure perfection, yet the session seemed to go by quickly because it was a lot of fun working with her.

I have been in 3 weddings and they were by far the best make up artist. If you didn't like, they were happy to fix it for you. I gave a direction but they knew exactly what I wanted. Thanks again!

Farah is the best make up artist I know. I would have not trusted anybody else to do my make up the day of my wedding. She made me look absolutely stunning. Not only did she do a great job but she also listened to me and what I wanted and made it happen. She did my bridesmaids make up as well, and they all looked just beautiful.

Eva is the BEST makeup artist. She is extremely professional and makes you feel like a princess. I had originally hired Eva for my bridal makeup but after my bridal trial I ended up hiring for several other events including my wedding makeup. The day of the wedding she arrived early, got everyone done ahead of schedule but made sure everyone looked great and was satisfied. She definitely goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. I will definitely hire her for future events.

Living in cities like LA, D.C., Scottsdale and Chicago, Brandon is as good as it gets when it comes to a flawless makeup applications. Not only is he incredibly funny and cute, but he knows products, ingredients, and tricks for just about everything! Even his glam looks look fresh, natural, and effortless - glowing and healthy looking skin is his thing. He truly is talented and probably the most knowledgeable professional artist I've ever met. He has a true passion for his craft! I would trust him for any and every occasion! TRULY THE BEST! and be prepared to fall in love with him within seconds, he is that makeup artist you put on speed dial.

My family and I attended a Chai Lifeline Purim party on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, where Tamar from Tamariel paints was face painting the kids...as usual, Tamar did an amazing job, not only face painting, but making ALL my kids, special needs kids included, feel like a million bucks. She is wonderful, patient, and skilled. She gives each child her undivided attention. We have been to many functions where Tamar has worked, and my children look forward to getting face painted by her. It is the highlight of every party, and when Tamar is not there, they are very disappointed. I would recommend Tamar and Tamariel paints to anyone looking for a great face painting experience.

I recently was in a wedding and Anjali was doing make-up. I am not a big make-up person and find myself wiping off a lot whenever I get it done, so I initially passed. However, after seeing how amazing the other girls looked I had to! Anjali was super nice about the last minute change of heart and was professional the whole time! I loved my make-up and even my mom really liked it (she's usually helping me wipe it off)! I felt beautiful all night. She really understands working with all skin shades which is the main reason I've run into issues in the past. Loved her!!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
