I have only GREAT things to say about my entire experience with From Hair to Eternity. Everything from the trials to the wedding day went perfectly. My hair and makeup came out beautiful and flawless and Carolina created exactly the look I was hoping for--she is truly talented at what she does. My maid of honor looked beautiful and was very pleased with her hair and makeup as well! On my wedding day, Carolina (along with her husband Carlos who helps her with hair) were able to work on myself, my maid of honor, and my two flower girls. After they were done with us, we asked if they could also do hair and makeup for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law (who were not previously in the contract), so it was very last minute, but Carolina happily took care of them too! Carolina & Carlos are so nice, fun, and professional, I felt so comfortable around them and so confident that they would make us all look beautiful on wedding day! I would definitely use them again for any special occasion in the future and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

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!

Morgan and her girls were very professional. We communicated through thumbtack/email all the way up to a few days before! They arrived on time and set everything up (she even had ring cleaner and let me keep my lipstick and mascara for the day). Whether we were indecisive or picky the girls accommodated to all of our needs! I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a reliable and professional wedding day hair/makeup/nail service. Thank you Morgan!

Angel did an incredible job on our hair and makeup for my sister's wedding! There were three of us and my 17 year old niece who generally wears little makeup was so impressed with how Angel did her makeup, she wants to see if she's available to do her makeup for prom! Thank you Angel for everything!!

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!!

Suzanne did my makeup for my wedding and did a spectacular job. Unfortunately, I had been really sick for 24 hrs before, and was a little "green." Despite that, I came out as beautifully as I had hoped. Also, her cheerful nature is a joy to be around. I was so happy with what she did, that I decided to spurge on makeup for a family member's wedding, although I played no special part. Once again, the job was great! Thank you Suzanne! You'll definitely be hearing from me again.

I barely wear makeup but when I went to Amanda, she made me feel comfortable and look beautiful. I have had terrible experience in the past with makeup artist, Amanda make the process enjoyable and relaxing. She is the only person I would allow to do my makeup when going out for an event. Would recommended her to anyone who is looking for a makeup artist.

Ashley was very kind , she did my makeup for a friends wedding and while I’m not accustomed to full coverage makeup I was happy to see that I looked very natural. She was very positive throughout the makeup application and emphasized that her work was just accentuating my attributions. Be prepared to feel fierce and empowered.

If you want the best then Robin is the one you need to go to. My daughter used Robin to do her hair and makeup for her wedding. Robin also did my hair, my mom's hair and three of the bridesmaids hair. Not only did my daughters hair and makeup look fantastic but she appeared like an angel floating down the aisle. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous because of the detail Robin put into the hair design and makeup. When it comes to trusting someone to make that special day memorable we couldn't have asked for a better person. Robin is not only professional, but she takes the time to get to know the people she is working with, their likes and dislikes. She really listens to what you have in mind as far as hair styles go. Not only is Robin a professional hair and makeup artist but she goes out of her way to make your special day as stress free as possible. She knows the time limits you are facing to get everything done. A few months after my daughters wedding, we were attending a friends daughters wedding and her hair stylist got sick. Needless to say they were in a panic. I called Robin and she was able to get to the church and do the bride, brides mother, and bridesmaids hair before the wedding. She's the best!!!

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.
