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 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 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.

Amanda did my makeup for a Vampire Ball and the final result was everything that I hoped for and more. Amanda listened to my ideas and worked her magic. Not only is she an extremely talented makeup artist but she is a lovely person to chat with. I highly recommend Amanda for any makeup needs that you have.

I browsed through dozens of makeup artists before I found Shanna and the minute I sat in her chair for my wedding makeup trial, I knew she was the one! She is focused, detail oriented, and her professionalism can’t be beat. I highly recommend Shanna for all your makeup needs and can’t wait to post additional photos from the wedding!

Wow Amanda was such a pleasure to work with! We came in from California for a wedding and she did my hair makeup as well as my mother in law’s. She listened to what we wanted and what was important to us and did a fantastic job we were both extremely pleased with our looks! She was very friendly and had wonderful recommendations of things to go do and see for me and my family! If you are looking for a skilled friendly makeup artist who will listen to what you want and exceed your expectations, she is the one!

I had a Halloween Themed wedding and Stephanie completely blew me away. Not only did my bridesmaids and I look amazing but the look lasted the whole night and I didn’t worry about it once, through dancing and hugging relatives, I couldn’t have had a better makeup artist. She was so professional and made it a comfortable environment for each us. I highly recommend her for any occasion 🎃👰🏼🤵🏼🦇

Hiring Chrissy to do my makeup was the worst experience in the beauty service industry that I have ever had in my life. For starters, she showed up at least 25 minutes late, complaining of traffic and parking. There are few things that bother me more than being late. You charged me $100 for one hour of your time. Check the weather. Check the traffic. Be early. Then there was the unfortunate realization that this woman is NOT a professional makeup artist. I've had my makeup done enough times to have some expectations of pro, and her profile on this site and reviews are borderline fraudulent. A couple important distinctions between Chrissy and what you can expect from someone who has been formally trained in this service: Hygiene: my first indicator that I was dealing with a novice was when she unloaded her products and they were all in disgustingly dirty bags. She pulled her brushes from a case that was visibly dirty and didn't wash them before or after use. She dipped the brush in the product itself which effectively means that the germs and bacteria from all her former clients were being blended and smudged into my skin. I am still broken out from this. Brows: I could tell that something was wrong right away from the look on my boyfriend's face, so I stopped to check in the middle and almost lost it. She used a blending brush (opposed to a sharp angled brush) to apply powder to not only my brows but a solid quarter inch around them. I wish I had taken a picture, it looked that ridiculous. Like a grey border around my ENTIRE eyebrow. She tried to convince me that some people like their brows that way. I've never met someone who likes uneven brows with a quarter inch of powder around them, but to each their own. Lashes: She applied my lashes poorly and with white glue. Both were lifting along the inner lash line and she didn't apply an eyeliner over it. The lashes were cheap and not fitted to my eye properly. It took me days to get the glue off completely. Lip: She started applying a lip gloss (opposed to a matte stick or liner as I requested) to my lips and I could feel how sloppy it was going to turn out. I looked in the mirror to find that she had tried to over-line with gloss applied with a cheap brush, so it ended up all around my mouth. Literally had smudges of red on my chin and nose. A TOTAL MESS. This is the point that I stopped her and took over because there was no way she was going to clean up that line without destroying my foundation (which inevitably happened). I spent hundreds of dollars to attend a black tie, destination wedding and wanted to treat myself to look special for the occasion. I was crushed when I realized that I was not only going to have crazy looking makeup, but be LATE FOR THE WEDDING. There may be some that appreciate her particular style, but that doesn't change the fact that it isn't in line with standards of this profession. I have to be honest, I became very upset with Chrissy and asked her to leave. I felt misled, taken advantage of, and frankly pissed off. I am sure that she will respond with all kinds of excuses, but know that I am taking the time to do this as a warning to others. She claimed to be a esthetician, and I shudder to think that this woman is out there performing treatments on skin given her shockingly low consideration for hygiene.
