Clover contacted me right away to discuss what she could offer for our party. She had many options for our kids party. The artwork was beautiful! We did face painting and glitter tattoos. Thank you Clover!!

Valen is was absolutely great for my event. We did a trial run which I would definitely recommend. It helped get both of us on the same page for what I was hoping for and what I would look like with certain styles. At the real event, Valen’s makeup made me feel very beautiful and glamorous with my theme without making me feel like I wasn’t myself and my hair looked great without looking too crunchy or plastic with hairspray. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist!

Cheryl is very professional makeup artist. She responds to my inquiries even before the day of our appointment. I had flaky skin during my event but she was able to work it around to very flawless glowing skin.

Carolina and her husband were amazing! They saved my day after my makeup artist cancelled last minute the week before my wedding. They were professional, on time, and made my day incredibly relaxed and wonderful! They were wonderful with my 10 year old daughter! They finished in a very reasonable amount of time so i was not rushed at all! They made my day amazing and i could not have asked for anything more! My makeup and hair came out amazing i truly have never felt more beautiful in my life! They were better then i could have ever expected!

Tasha was one of the bridal makeup artists that my sister had a trial with. My sister loved the hair and the way Tasha plumped up her lips. Tasha drove to my sister, brought in all the equipment and even stayed late to ensure that we had an opportunity to see the finished product. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. We ended up going with someone who had more experience with Indian skin and hair for the wedding. However, Tasha's work quality in the trial was really good and I just had to leave this review!

Alicia was extremely professional but also affordable and very personable and it felt like my hair and makeup was being done by a friend that I have known for a long time. She makes everything extremely easy for the bride and bridal party as she came to my apartment in Massachusetts for the trial and later came to my parent's house in RI for my church wedding hair and makeup and then traveled to my house in RI the next day for my 2nd day ceremony/reception hair and makeup. She brought 3 other hair/makeup artists with her on the big day and everyone's hair and makeup came out stunning. Both days, I felt my hair and makeup was flawless. For the church wedding, I requested a more natural look and the next day a more glam look; each of which I was extremely pleased with. Not to mention Alicia and her team were able to do all of my bridesmaids hair and makeup flawlessy as well as my mom, grandmother, and mother-in-law. 2 of my bridesmaid have their own upcoming weddings and are extremely interested in using Alicia again. I would use her again in a heartbeat. Not only were her services extremely affordable, but she is able to do a wide variety of styles and ages and she is extremely flexible, professional, and friendly! Highly recommend!!!

Jessica was a dream to work with. We hired her for an in-home makeup session for Halloween. We were excited to work with her to get some glamorous makeup to go with our costumes. We worked with her in advance to provide her with inspirational pictures so she could source whatever colors, gems or glitter she needed. When Jessica arrived day of, she came with all the professional equipment in tow (chair, light, etc.) We were very impressed with her demeanor, her skills, and her spread of makeup - including lashes. The final product was awesome, especially my friend who went as a "snow queen" and had some really cool makeup on. Mine was a little more understated (just heavy eye make up and dark lipstick for my "witch"). Both of us were pleased and were complimented through out the night. Would totally work with Jessica again and recommend her without hesitation!

Andrea was amazing and did a quality job in a very short amount of time. My daughter had 30 kids at her halloween/ birthday party and she was able to paint the face of every child who wanted to have it done in the 90 minute time frame we had her for. She had a great variety of makeup and tattoos, and the faces she made were extremely well done and beautiful. She was also friendly and fun and the kids all loved her. I am very satisfied with her services and would most definitely recommend her to anyone.

Ani provided make-up for myself. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. She has a wonderful eye for color, respectfully listens to your requests, and moves throughout the getting-ready period of the day with a calm, collected stress-free attitude. Ani is a true professional, and has a passion for her work. She really can do anything, you just have to communicate what you want and you will not be disappointed. I would recommend Ani to anyone in need of a makeup artist for a wedding or a special event, she is absolutely the best!

I saw her reviews and immediately wanted her. I told Khushboo that I was in need of a makeup artist for my brother’s graduation. Now, it’s not a normal graduation and many people are showing up fashionable. So I needed a artist who was fast and efficient and Khushboo beat all my expectations. I will definitely hire her again for a second time because she was wonderful!!

I cannot say enough about my experience with Suzanne. She was professional and courteous from day one. She was prompt with our correspondence. Always very positive and cheerful. As far as her performance, I could not have asked for more. She made me feel so at ease and special on my wedding day. I looked so elegant and beautiful. Truly tapped into exactly what I was aiming for which was not easy as I was very vague with what I wanted. Even I was not sure. Suzanne was also very fun and personable. She felt like an old friend laughing with my mother and friend and other wedding professionals. She is exactly what you are looking for in a makeup artist. Someone you can trust on your big day. I would recommend her over and over again. She also sent me a very thoughtful gift after the wedding congratulating us. Hire her!

I have never been more confident in my makeup skills after having my makeup lesson with Ashley! She is incredibly patient and knowledgeable about makeup application and has a fantastic teaching style. I would recommend her to anyone looking for tips and tricks on how to apply makeup. I would also hire her to do my makeup for special occasions. Hands down one of the best makeup artists I’ve ever met (and I’ve met a ton over my lifetime).

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.
