Chris did my bridal hair and makeup as well as the hair and makeup of a handful of ladies for my wedding. I cannot speak highly enough of the work she did. She understood exactly what each of us wanted, was happy to make any adjustments we requested, and made us all look absolutely fabulous. She is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Amanda truly is talented when it comes to the world of makeup. I was going to a wedding and needed to look glamorous but also natural and Amanda hit it out of the park. Not only did she reassure me every step of the way what she was doing but made my makeup experience very enjoyable and stressful! Trust me, if you need a makeup artist who is professional, punctual, and TALENTED, look no further! Amanda, thanks for turning me into Cinderella and making me the belle of the Ball!

Not only is Sharleen an amazing makeup artist but she is also extremely educated on all of her makeup products. As someone who’s constantly dealing with rosacea I tend to be very cautious with the products I use on my face. Sharleen reassured me that all of her Younique products were all natural, plant based and great for all skin types, including those who deal with different skin conditions. With that being said I’m extremely happy I chose to have Sharleen do my makeup for my friends wedding day. The work she did was flawless and lasted all day and night (even through the heat,) without having a single reaction on my face! I would not hesitate to have her do my makeup again in the future. I highly recommend her!

Regina did my makeup for a Christmas Eve party. She was very professional and very knowledgeable about my complexion/hair type and how to work with it (I'm a red head), which I was excited about. That night, I got plenty of compliments on my makeup - I'd definitely go back to Regina next time I need my makeup done for an event or a party!

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!!!

I have had my makeup done by Nefris 4 times in the last year and she's done amazing work each time! She really proves how much she cares about her work with how meticulous she is. The fact that she has a great personality is an additional perk. I will certainly continue being a repeat customer for every and any special occasion.

I used GaudeandGold hair and makeup services for my wedding. Calvina came to my house several weeks in advance for a trial run. At the time, I had no idea as to how I wanted to wear my hair. After showing Calvina my wedding dress and veil, she was able to come up with the perfect hairstyle that was simple yet extremely elegant; exactly what I was looking for. Because I’m not big on makeup, I knew that I wanted a natural look, which she was able to achieve with no problems. Being that I’m the hardest person in the world to please when it comes to makeup, I was extremely impressed that I had no changes once it was complete. I was extremely happy that the day of the wedding, Calvina was able to recreate the look. She did such a fantastic job. I was so happy with the way everything turned out on my big day, I would highly recommend Calvina for all your hair and make up needs. She really helped me to feel like a princess.

I couldn’t have picked a better Makeup Artist to do my makeup. I’ve had worse prior experiences where the artist did not respect my wishes and make me look cakey(which everyone knows ruins the night) and Gabrielle was far from that. She even brought me out in the natural lighting and matched my makeup to the lighting inside and out. She was super kind the whole time and always showed interest and compassion into my appointment. I heard about her through a bunch of people and am so glad I listened to the very positive “word of mouth”. I will definitely be going back to Gabrielle for every event I have. She was great!!

I found Jackie on Thumbtack and it was my first time using this website to find a vendor. Jackie was wonderful to work with – from coordinating my makeup trial to my wedding day timeline to making a payment, everything was a breeze. She did an incredible job and made my bridesmaids and I look so beautiful. We all had airbrush makeup done which turned out great and lasted throughout the entire day/night. Jackie is very personable and made me feel at ease throughout the entire morning. Jackie did an excellent job of getting all six of us ready on time. She even touched up a few of us before she left which was great. Thank you, Jackie!

Amanda @ Shade Artistry is great! She had done my makeup for a formal event last year and was completely professional, genuinely invested in doing a quality job and receptive to the look I was hoping to achieve. She was very knowledgable about the products she used and was able to give me a few tips and tricks on how to achieve some of the looks (hello, perfect cat eye!) I often have trouble recreating by myself. Would definitely recommend!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

    My son is getting married in May, however it's in Baltimore. My future daughter-in-law and her mother went somewhere in Baltimore today to have a trail hair & makeup session. I was wondering if someone do mother of the groom's? I'd have to try several hairstyles and I'm a bit nervous about the makeup. I've always done my own, and I never leave the house without some kind of makeup on...Habit Would someone be interested in something like that?Would it be ok if I had someone take pics so I could take them along with me to Baltimore? I just don't know what to do. Do you have a salon I could go to? I'd feel much better than in my own home. Help ... :)
