She is extremely professional and punctual. I found my to go makeup artist now. Look no further. She is reasonable and doesn’t try to break your bank like other makeup artists, especially when they know you have an event they jack up the price...unacceptable. With Erin she is affordable, loves what she does and an incredible personality. She gave me exactly the look I wanted. The makeup lasted the whole event. It was so beautiful I didn’t want to take it off. Thank you for such an outstanding work of art. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Where do I start? I submitted two separate TT requests to find a makeup artist and hair stylist to help make three promotion models look their best for my company's photo and video commercial shoot. When Jen responded to my request for a hair stylist, not only did she provide a quote for the service as well as a very beautiful work portfolio, she also told me that she and her team known as the Glam Squad did both hair and makeup. "A Mobile Glam Squad"...... What? I didn't request a team, but a team was the answers to my prayers because they were able to save an incredible amount of time for 6 different sets/scenes at the studio. Jen is so professional and laid out plan on how she and her team would apply their beautiful makeup and do their hair. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome and will definitely be working with JM Designz for all of my company's makeup and hair needs in the future.

I could not have been happier with DC Elite Image. Teresa was accommodating (came to my home to do my makeup for a holiday party), super friendly and professional to work with - and I simply loved my results! I would recommend her without hesitation to any individual or organization needing a professional makeup artist. And I will certainly be a repeat customer!

I am so glad that I hired Addi as my makeup artists for my wedding! Not only is she incredibly talented, but so CALM, accommodating, and flexible - it can be hard and stressful to organize a large group of people on such an important day, but in Addi's hands our morning went off without a hitch and everyone loved their final looks! During my trial, she made sure we settled on a look I was 100% comfortable with and confident in, but also that she knew would photograph well and have staying power. Everyone's makeup lasted through a full day of pictures, an evening wedding, and a night of dancing. I can't recommend her enough - you won't be sorry you hired Addi!

Francisca is amazing! She was prompt and did a fantastic job. I couldn't believe how quick she was. She is so friendly and easy going and informs you what she's doing throughout the whole process. She's a sweet and extremely talented makeup artist! She even let me know what ringlights she uses when she takes photos. I go to the DC area often, so I will definitely be using her services again!

Karma’s Kreations provides an excellent experience. I booked her for 5 bridesmaids. Her makeup application was beautiful and held the entirety of the ceremony and the reception. She was always quick to respond to questions or messages in general. She maintained her professional throughout, even though due to mishaps not related to her some of the bridesmaids had to be rushed. It did not change the the quality of her work. Aubri did an amazing job all the way around and with her affordable rates. You can’t find anyone better. I definitely recommend and will definitely be using her again! Thank you Karma’s Kreations for such an awesome experience!

I never normally write reviews but I was so impressed. She made all of us feel special and beautiful. Most makeup artist only do makeup one way( which I hate) but Jaydes makeup capibilties and talents were able to stretch from my daughter (13) who's makeup was very beautiful and age appropriate to my Great grandmother(81) who's makeup was light and elegant. But most importantly my husbands jaw was on the floor. Lol.. THANK YOU SOO MUCH.

Esha and her team made me feel beautiful and super glam on my wedding day. They patiently curled a million of my 26 inch extensions and made me look amazing. My ladies were all super happy with the way their hair and makeup turned out. I loved that she did my makeup the way I like and didn't try to give me a natural look like a lot of makeup artists do! I got compliments all night!

She gave me a natural look with a soft glow in addition to a bold purple lip color. She was very sweet and she took time to adjust the makeup to my preferences. I will definitely ask her to do my prom makeup. Her prices were very cheap compared to other makeup artists. And the makeup done was outstanding. Extremely pleased.

She was absolutely the best. She did the makeup for 3 of us. She was everything we could have asked for in our first professional makeup artist. To say we loved it, would be an understatement. We all felt and looked AMAZING because of her.

One thing you should know about JDozier is that she has integrity and is a master at what she does! I appreciate flawless NATURAL makeup application that is not heavy...stays in place...and compliments MY face (not the skill level of the MUA) and she delivers EVERYTIME!! She is very responsive and manages our time extremely well. If she says that she will be there you can count on her with no questions asked...she confirms the appointment, she follows up, and her pricing is straight forward! Her brushes and products are always clean (shes serious about it too...and we should all appreciate clean brushes...AMEN). She asks questions to determine your tastes and shes honest about the outcome (which I appreciate). JDozier will also gave me the confidence to try new looks...I tend to stick to what I know but she has an eye that you cant help but trust (side note: she put this pretty blue liner...yes blue...on my eyes the last time she did my makeup and I LOVED it...I would have never thought twice about that color but it complimented my look very well). And another reason why she will be my MUA of choice for life...I contacted her a few weeks ago to do my moms makeup. I explained that my mom has had so.e health challenges and hasnt worn makeup in about 15 years or more and I wanted her to feel beautiful. JDozier delivered...my mom LOVED HER MAKEUP...she was so confident and that is something I will never forget! Honest review...always a great experience!

Krystal did an amazing job on my makeup and hair. She knew what I was looking for and I wanted some adjustment afterwards which she did great. The hair and makeup looks fabulous for my shoot. The only small downside was her punctuality, she was 30min late which worked out well for my timing that why I still give her 5 stars. I would recommend her to anybody looking for a stunning makeup

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
