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!

Tiffany is a very talented hairstylist and makeup artist. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding 2 weeks ago. She stayed with me from 10am-745pm doing the hair and makeup for my mom, sister and I. She stayed after so that I could change my hair and makeup for an evening look. She was a calming soul and I can not thank you enough!

I'm getting married in September, and The Artists will be doing my hair and makeup, and that of my ladies. I went for my trial yesterday, and boy am I happy to have found them! They captured my vision before I knew I had one. Their space is kind of tucked away in an old building on main street in gloucester, it's clean and so cute. The girls, Laura and Erin, are SO nice, very good at what they're doing. As if I wasnt excited enough for the big day! Thank you to The Artists!

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!

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!

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).

Nic is an amazing amazing, bubbly, smiley, person that puts you at ease. She was very attentive and was able to handle all of my crazy requests. She was great when it came to the details and was always checking in with me throughout the process to make sure I liked what I saw. In the case that I didn't like something she was quick to adjust. Overall Nic did a wonderful job creating my natural glowing bride look and I highly recommend her to others!

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!!

Erin should have a constellation named after her. She is wonderful, smart, sweet, creative and fast. We had a last minute photo shoot with one of our artists and that artist is a bit hesitant to try anything. Erin brought out the best in her both in her attitude and her amazing work. We highly recommend you sit in her chair and let her do her thing. You will be so happy!

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!

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 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.
