Tiffany is an amazing make up artist! She was very professional and quick to respond to messages when I was first inquiring about make up services for a wedding. This past Saturday she came up to Nashua, to apply make up for my wedding to myself, as well as my bridal party. We all received many compliments of how beautiful our make up was. I would definitely recommend hiring Tiffany! Thank you so much for everything!

Michelle did the make up for my wedding a couple years ago. She was recommended by my hair stylist and I could not have been happier with her! We had a mix of styles and ages - She did the make up for the mothers of the bride and groom, aunts, bridesmaids and me, the bride. Some of us like a more glam look and others prefer a more natural look and Michelle was able to accommodate everyone. She made each girl feel beautiful but still comfortable. I've been to a few weddings where people are borderline unrecognizable but for my wedding Michelle did the perfect look for each girl so we looked fabulous but not overboard. She helped me pick out the perfect eye and lip colors and would make suggestions without any pressure. She did about 8 girls in just 4 or 5 hours and it never felt rushed. She was responsive, on time and went above and beyond for us, traveling to 2 locations (hotel and venue) just to get a few pictures of us getting ready at the venue. Her prices are comparable to others I have seen but the quality of her work and her customer service are worth a lot more. Not to mention she is fun and sweet and a pleasure to have around on the big day! I cannot say enough great things about Michelle and would highly recommend her to any friends getting married in the area. THANK YOU MICHELLE!!!!!!

Khushboo was fabulous! I wanted to have my make up done for a friends wedding since it was outside and I wanted my makeup to last all night. This makeup application did not disappoint! Khushboo used airbrush, applied fake lashes and knew what colors to use on my eyes to match my dress (without even seeing the dress). I received compliments throughout the night about how "fresh" my makeup still looked. Thank you Khushboo!

Suzanne was great! She did an amazing job on my wedding day make up as well as my bridesmaids and mother. She also made me feel so calm and relaxed. My bridesmaids loved her work and one of them hired her for their wedding in September! Thanks again Suzanne, you made me feel "FLAWLESS" on my big day! :)

Sharleen is the sweetest person. She does an amazing job, I’m having her do my wedding day make up but my trial was fantastic! She knew the exact colors that would look great on my face and gave all my bridesmaids tips and answered questions the entire trial! I highly suggest Sharleen she is professional, reliable, and knows what she is doing!

Charlene and Monica are absolutely outstanding and I would recommend their services to anyone! I initially had reservations about using a team that I found online, but upon meeting these 2 wonderful women, all of my doubts were shattered and they seemed to know my hair and make-up needs better than I did! They are so friendly and personable, reasonably priced and they work together as an amazing team- which my entire bridal party commented on. I had a thousand compliments for both my hair and make-up and I have never felt so beautiful. I will absolutely use Charlene and Monica again and I hope to do so in the future. Wonderful team!

    I first met Justine when she did my hair for my sister-in-law's wedding. My hair was on the shorter side but she managed to get some pretty amazing curls in my hair! I decided that when I got married that I would definitely be booking Justine for the event! Sure enough, when I got married Justine did my hair, most of my brides maids, and my mom and mother-in-law's hair!! Justine is is always professional and works hard to accomplish the look you're looking for or has great ideas if you don't have a clue what you want! I would highly recommend Justine for bridal and bridal party up-dos :-)

    When I started my search for a wedding make up artist, I was extremely self conscious to go to anyone because of a lifelong struggle with terrible skin. I've never wanted to have someone "see" my skin without my usual cover up routine, as I struggle with both dry and oily skin and large pores that make me feel uncomfortable to be in public naturally. But Jen changed this for me. Not only did she jump right into my rescue to set up a trial appointment just 3 months before my wedding, but she really made me feel better about my skin and even took the time to educate me about what products I should and shouldn't be using, and what style make up applications will give me the results I am looking for! After the trial, she followed up to see how I felt about it hours after the application and if it was still giving me the results I was looking for! I was blown away that after 8+ hours, my face wasn't getting "shiny" from oily skin and my eyeliner wasn't smudging all over my eye lid, like it does when I do my own make up. It was a dream come true and EXACTLY what I needed for my wedding day! We had some back and forth leading up to the wedding to make sure we were both on the same page of some of the slight changes we were going to make and she was with me every step of the way. Jen and her assistant were prompt on the wedding day and fit right in with my bridal party and family! Once again, making everyone feel comfortable and laughing with us as we got ready for the rest of the day. They were even able to accommodate last minute requests for a couple of family members that changed their mind and wanted to have their make up done (life savers!) last minute! When I walked down the aisle, I had never felt more beautiful and more confident to show off MY skin. And even better, my husband was SO happy, that even with my make up professionally done, he still saw "me" at the end of the aisle - the exact look I wanted on our wedding day :) And once again, not only did my make up last 8+ hours, it lasted twice that amount of time AND through an outdoor photoshoot in the rain at our Venue!!! Amazingggg doesn't even begin to describe the worth of having Jen as my make up artist. Her talent is incomparable and I can't wait to refer her to whomever may need the perfect wedding touch!

    What a wonderful experience! Alyssa was on-time and everyone looked beautiful!! We are a very picky group and she did my bridal make-up, mother-of-the bride and my whole bridal party and everyone was thrilled!! We went with airbrush make-up and it was amazing...none of my redness showed (Rosacea), it lasted all night and looked beautiful in the pictures! Highly recommend her for your big day!

    When I was planning my wedding back in the summer of 2011, I had a vision of how I wanted everything to look, including my makeup. Simple, light and natural. Those were the only three words I used in my trial run with Tina, and that's exactly what I got. She perfected the look, and recreated it exactly on my big day. Tina traveled to Cape Cod in the wee hours of the morning to prepare for the bridal party. Despite the initial headcount I gave her prior to that morning, two extra bridesmaids expressed last minute wishes to get their makeup done. She accommodated so well and timed all the 'maids perfectly, and left ample space in the morning for my application. I was so pleasantly surprised that my makeup lasted all day and into the reception. My own application certainly never does that! In addition to makeup, Tina provided a calm presence throughout the whole morning and quietly orchestrated the flow of events for hair, makeup, getting dressed and calming nerves. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Tina for your next big event, be it a wedding, reunion, etc.

    Madeleine did my make up for prom my junior year and it came out so good I had to go back. My senior year prom make up was unbelievable. It was what I got the most compliments on. Because of Madeleine I felt absolutely stunning.

    I loved my makeup. Great experience. Better than going to Sephora to get your makeup done. She taught me a few things I didn’t know about make up as well. Great person to meet.

    Very professional and knows a lot about hair and make-up. Very inexpensive for the work done. It was great that she's right in the North Shore area. I would schedule with her again.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
