I was in desparate need of makeup application for my daughter for prom, since my sister had training for a new job and was no longer available. After a few days of researching artists on StyleSeat, I stumbled across Monique's page and decided to take a chance - her pictures were amazing. I am soooo glad I did! All I can say is she is awesome. When she set up the lights and strapped on her brushes, I instantly knew I found the right person. As she begin to work, I felt witness to the creation of a masterpiece! I stood back in awe. She wowed everyone in the room, and when she was done, my daughter beamed with beauty and confidence.

It was an amazing experience to work with Lerin. We hired lerin to do make up for an Indian wedding and she did a phenomenal job! We were a party of about 30 ladies and she accommodated each and everyone's requests. She stayed a lot longer than we had talked about and i really appreciated that. Her drive and passion for her work is motivational! If you want an amazing makeup experience then i would recommend Lerin! Thank you for everything!!

Ami did such an amazing job of providing stunning makeup to myself and my family members for my wedding! It was over 95 degrees when I walked down the aisle and you couldn’t not even tell in pictures because my makeup was applied so well! She was early to the house we were getting ready at, was professional even in a relaxed setting and worked diligently the whole time. I very much so recommend her to be a part of any day you want to look stunning! Thank you again for making my day that much easier and stress free!

Patricia was absolutely wonderful! Not only is her work extremely professional, but she is so nice and personable and makes the makeup and hair experience an absolute pleasure. Also, we ran into a snag where we needed to shoot our film for another day and asked her with less than half a day notice if she could come again the next day... and she happily complied. I could not recommend Patricia more! :)

Laura was pleasant and made me feel very comfortable. We did a trial run for my upcoming wedding and I was very pleased with the results. She finished my makeup at 11:30 a.m. and it lasted all day until I removed it at 10 p.m. I have oily skin and blotted makeup throughout the day with a Kleenex and it still held up! Can't wait till big day application. Thank You Laura!

Monica and her team were absolutely wonderful for my wedding in September of 2016. They arrived on time, were so pleasant, and worked very diligently to complete my hair and makeup, as well as hair styles for my mom, our flower girl, and 7 of my bridesmaids. Monica was extremely accommodating when I requested 2 additional stylists and a certain time frame in our schedule. My hair and makeup was done well at my trial (during which she generously did a trial for my mom, too!), but the second time around for my wedding - WOW! I literally could not be happier. I was so happy with each, and they stayed all day and all night, after having it done around 9 in the morning. My bridesmaids were so, so pleased with their hair styles as well, and so was I. I would highly recommend Monica for both hair and make up services! Thank you so much Monica and team for making my day so beautiful!

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.

Jennifer has a gift for teaching makeup application skills and for makeup artistry and I'm so glad to have found her! I've attended 2 classes at her home and walked away from both classes feeling beautiful and with a lot more confidence in my ability to apply contour, highlight, and different types of eyeliners. She teaches on a model, and then guides your practice, even making suggestions as to fun colors to try from her makeup stash. Thanks to Jennifer, I'm enjoying trying different colors and flaming it up a bit. I immediately felt welcome at her in- home classroom. Jennifer has created a warm, friendly environment to learn from her and also your classmates in the group classes. I hoped to learn a lot, and she exceeded my expectations. I look forward to attending more classes and will definitely use her for special events.

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.
