Indira Tannetta is a true artist in every sense of the word. I worked with her in the greater Boston market and knew her to be one of the most sought after Makeup Artists in our community. Indira has it all going for her, easy to work with, even, steady, passionate, creative. Beautiful in the company of her,with her heart, smile, and natural perfection. Most impressive is Indiras artistry and perfection, an innate ability to capture each clients desired appearance, not stopping at the makeup application, inspiring and enhancing her clients personal style from head to toe! I couldn't imagine how Indira could improve, I completely enjoy watching her grow as a woman and artist and look forward with anticipation to the great work she will undoubtedly produce in the future, Indira is the very best!

Anne and MJ did a fantastic job with hair and makeup. My bridesmaids and I looked so beautiful. We received so many complements. Our makeup did not fade throughout the night either, it stayed on through the tears, the sweat (from the dancing) and everything else. The same goes with our hair. It stayed curly and in its place all day and night. Overall, the hair and makeup experience was better than I ever expected. Anne and MJ were also super nice and flexible with our schedule. They met us at a private residence, completed all of our hair and makeup in the alloted time (even with 20 minutes to spare), and were very conversational through the whole thing. They both were so professional, but also relaxed and not stressed. The entire experience with Anne and MJ was so amazing and I couldn't have asked for better hair and makeup artists.

I cannot recommend Anna enough! I was desperately searching for a smart, creative, and reliable makeup artist who would understand the look that I was going for, and I found all of that and more in Anna. She was incredibly professional from the get-go and her response time was very quick -- just what a bride needs! She was very patient and gracious when I was running late for both the trial and the wedding day, and she managed to get me, my bridesmaids, and my family all made up in time anyway. And we all looked stunning! I felt like I was in the capable hands of a friend the whole time. Definitely a positive experience all around and I will be giving her number to everyone I know!

Excellent experience, I highly recommend her. I have used Mandi for makeup applications for many formal events I have attended. She did a beautiful job on transforming me and I loved my makeup which always holds up throughout the events. Unlike so many people who advertise for these services, Mandi has a degree and is a board certified and licensed Esthetician and professional Makeup Artist. Her education and years of experience in her field really show! She is a true professional and has a beautiful spa! I go to her studio on a regular basis for facials, waxing and other services. I have seen a huge improvement to my skin. Her prices are so affordable I am able to go monthly.

September was amazing! She held a tutorial for a bridal shower we had. She provided snacks and drinks for us as she worked on the bride's makeup. The place was nice snd had great decorations. Most importantly, the makeup and tips were amazing. Her demo even showed up how to go from a day to night look. I almost forget, the tutorial came with recommendations and personalized notebook. If Im ever in need of a makeup artist against the New Orleans area, Im using her. I recommend her for any occassion!

    Sylvia has done my makeup for many special occasions. I've gone to her for my senior pictures, prom, homecoming, graduation, pageant portfolio, pageant interview, and various pageant events. I absolutely love when she does my makeup. I do not trust many people to try new things on my face but I have total trust in her. She always makes me look so alive and I always get so many compients on my makeup. She really knows what she is doing and always leaves me looking beautiful.


    I have been a licensed makeup artist and esthetician for 4 years now. The industry took me to Miami where I learned from top makeup artists. I am now back in New Orleans and working, doing makeup for the New Orleans Telemundo news anchor. I am eager to be back and do what I have a talent and passion for.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
