Monique at Unveiled Ego was responsive in all my queries, reasonably priced for beautiful work and very professional in all my dealings with her. Ultimately, I had to cancel due to the bridal parties makeup being covered elsewhere; if that were not the case, I'm absolutely certain I would have had nothing but rave reviews for her quality of work.

Thanks again Ami!!

Laura was great! She showed up on time and did make-up for three of us for my daughters wedding. My make-up looked really great. Not overdone or too dark. My eyes are super crepey and they looked really good. Laura did my make-up at 11 am and it still looked the same at 1:30am when I got home! I highly recommed Laura :)

Monica did my trial and day-of bridal hair and make up. She has a very flexible schedule and I was able to set up an appointment at my convenience. She is a pro! I normally don't put make up on even on a special ocassion, so I had requested for a light make up but would look elegant at the same time. She did a great job on the trial and she did awesomely amazing on the actual wedding! I did not regret a thing about my make up/hair. I felt lovely throughout the night!! She provided me a touch up kit which was well appreciated! Loved her work.

Working with Patricia was great! Before we met she was very responsive and answered all my questions. She was very sensitive to my needs and asked me detailed questions to make sure she was giving me the look I wanted. She made me feel at ease with the whole process. Not only can she do makeup, she is a wiz with hair! She did my hair and makeup for my bridal shower and I got tons of compliments. Hiring her again for my wedding day! Highly recommend.

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.

Lilly is amazing!!! She and her assistant Tina did hair and make up for me (bride), 5 bridesmaids and my mom for my wedding this August. I cannot express how happy I am with her work and how thankful I am to have met her. During the trial, she spent HOURS with me, doing several hair styles and make up looks until I was 100% satisfied. Initially I didn't know what I wanted and Lilly was very patient and understanding the whole time! On the day of the wedding, Lilly and Tina were able to get hair and make up done for 7 people without any problem! All of my bridesmaids and my mom looked absolutely beautiful and everybody was extremely satisfied with how they looked. Lilly is VERY talented and very creative and I will definitely recommend her to everyone I know! Thank you again for all of your hard work and for making my bridal party and I look beautiful on my special day :) <3

I am quite the novice when it comes to makeup and its application. However, Almaz is very professional and knowledgeable with cosmetics. She explains how she is applying the makeup and the products she is using, as well as offers some great makeup tips/advice which can be very helpful for someone like me! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is seeking a professional for any occasion. She takes the time needed to make you look perfect! I was very pleased with my results, and would definitely use her services again.

Professional and efficient! Allison was so pleasant and after I showed her a picture of what I wanted for an updo, actually made my hair look better than the picture I showed her. Her makeup artistry was fabulous- and her attention to detail was much appreciated! (Blending down to neck) you won’t go wrong if you hire her! She really has exceptional talent with makeup!

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.
