Makeup was one thing I knew I didn’t want to worry about on the day of my wedding, and it came out perfect at my trial with Kasia! Kasia is a true professional, and I know she will make me and my bridesmaids look gorgeous on my special day!

Thankful i found Ashley via thumbtack. She did my makeup for prom and i received so many compliments. I also wanted to share with anyone that thumbtack is making it very hard for artists like Ashley to get customers. Makeup artists are being charged upwards of 20 dollars just to be contacted and are charged even if you don’t respond ever again. This makes me really sad that hard working women are having their money taken like that. Hopefully you can get in touch with her by googling Glamsformation beauty and getting all her contact info!! She’s worth it!

Over the years, being an actress, I have worked with many professional makeup artists. Christina from Divine Elegance, by far made me feel the most comfortable any makeup artist has. And the end result was absolutely great! I would recommend her to anyone!

    My daughter hired Jess to do hair and makeup for her wedding. She did my hair in a braided up-do in a matter of minutes! It was a style that she recommended for me that I was very comfortable with. I applied half my makeup and then she finished the rest in a matter of a few minutes and made me look gorgeous. She then proceeded to do 4 other girls hair and makeup. My daughter looked stunning! I highly recommend her.

    I recently had the pleasure of having my makeup done by Eve Grenon. She gave me a gorgeous smokey eye that really made my blue eyes stand out for my senior pictures. At the reveal, I was blown away! Eve did such a wonderful job, she really listens to her clients and goes above and beyond!! She's so talented, and I can't wait to have my makeup done by her again!

    Dekd.out is a personal friend who did an amazing job putting together this makeup look for a birthday event. She kept all her makeup tools sterile, which is SO important to me. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire application process. I got so many compliments on my makeup. Am definitely going with dekd.out for all future events calling for that extra glam!

      I loved my experience with JenniG. I am the type of girl that does not have much experience with makeup and only really likes a natural look with a little pop when i go to events like weddings. Jenni understood and perfectly executed what i was looking for !!! Which is something that i have had trouble with before with other MUAs. I loved my look and definitely will be booking Jenni in the future.

      Ani was great right from the begining. She arrived on time, actually a tad early which was even better since the party girls couldnt wait for her. She did an awesome job on each of the girls. Such a great makeup artist!

      My friend had gotten married and Nicole did the entire bridal party's make up.... I felt like a completely new woman once she finished my make up. She was very patient with me because I asked a ton of questions, professional, and exceeded expectation... Great experience!

            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.

              I am getting married at the Heritage Hotel in Southbury. I would like a quote on if an artist came to the hotel to do my makeup (airbrush, faux eyelashes etc) and my maid of honors I think she just wants traditional makeup no lashes. I would like to know how much for a trial and also what airbrush makeup is used.
