I enjoyed my experience with AD Hair and Makeup! She was super friendly, and it was worth my money for her to come to our house rather than have to go to a store or another artist for makeup services.

I was extremely impressed with Shelley and her work! I did a trial run of makeup, and I looked stunning! She came to the hotel and did some bridesmaids makeup and my own. My makeup stayed all day without budging! I also loved how we had the option for fake lashes. They really made everything stand out! She is extremely professional, and her prices are very fair! I highly recommend Beautiful-You-Makeup-Artistry for all of your makeup needs!

Brittanye did the makeup for my sister and I for my wedding. She listened to my suggestions for tweaking the look from the trial to the big day, and our makeup looked great in the wedding pictures. She was fantastic and fun to work with, and I highly recommend her!

Allison did an amazing job doing makeup for our photo shoot a few weeks ago. She was completely understanding of our needs, and the needs of the model, i was a perfect symbiosis. She was extremely professional and flexible with our schedule. We can't wait to work with her again, thank you Allison!

Cigi's makeup studio was an absolute pleasure to work with! My wife and I had our makeup done for the annual Freaker's Ball at the Midland and we got nothing but compliments all night on how great we looked! The staff was great and their skills are second to none! We will definitely be back next year for our Halloween makeup needs. If you're in the KC area and need anything done I would highly reccomend Cigi's!!!

Jessica was the perfect makeup artist for my wedding! I was blown away at how she managed to create the exact look that I wanted. She totally got what I had been envisioning and used her incredible talent, creativity, and perfectionism to achieve my dream wedding look. I have seen her do makeup for other friends of mine, and I'm always impressed with her skill and talent. Jessica and her team are so enjoyable to work with because of their warm and friendly personalities. I could not have asked for a better team of makeup artists and I think anyone who hires Fix Beauty Co. for hair and makeup would be thrilled with their decision.

    Dee came to my home. She arrived on time ( perfect). Ms. Dee cornrowed my hair into a nice bun, that took one hour. I was pleased with my style. I would contact her again. Very friendly. Great service.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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 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.
