Working with Erin for my Pamper Yo'Self event was perfect! She was able to create amazing looks for all the guests and was so professional! She even walked through a mini makeup application lesson for each guest, explaining what they can use and how to create products that they may not have. She tailored everything to each person's skin tone and complexion and the women looked gorgeous!

Words cannot explain how amazing Addi is! She did the makeup at my wedding for myself, the bridesmaids, mothers, AND she did my eyelash extensions. When I went for my trial, I immediately knew how professional and talented Addi was as we tested out different looks for each eye, cheeks, etc. And then on my wedding day she exceeded everyone's expectations. From my mother to my girls, everyone was so pleased with their makeup and lashes. I never felt more beautiful with the makeup service Addi provided. She is definitely using high quality product!! She was so easy to work with, professional, punctual, and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend.

This was my first experience with getting a professional makeup application and I was not disappointed! I am not a heavy makeup wearer and know nothing about foundation, contour, or lashes. Aubrielle talked me through her process and educated me along the way (she even let me keep the lashes). She had professional products and came prepared (she brought a chair and lighting!). This was my first big stage performance and I didn't want to worry about messing up my makeup or it not being visible to the audience. Aubrielle took care of everything and got me ready with time to spare. I felt like the only thing I had to worry about was bringing the performance. The makeup application was perfect and exceeded my expectations as it matched my skin tone and type. I felt like I owned the stage ^.^ I will definitely use her again if I'm in the area!

My purpose for employing Chance-Lawrone Makeup Artistry services was for an upcoming dance showcase. What stood out from the initial start of gathering proposals was the rapid response in professional messaging and the pleasantness in responding to my questions on the phone. Another area that caught my eye was the website which reflected the breakdown on services and the before/after photos. Our initial trial, I felt comfortable, she respectfully listens and decipher at times the direction I wanted to go with my makeup. Jayde wanted to make sure we had the look I was trying to attain so, the day of the event it would be as simple as 1, 2, 3 done! During the whole process, she offered flexibility when it came to scheduling and shared ‘DIY tips’. It was truly a very calm, stress-free day… She made me look and feel ‘Picture Perfect’ and the makeup lasted throughout the whole event. She truly did an amazing job and would recommend Chance-Lawrone Makeup Artistry services to all. AA

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.

Judith and Jossi are kind and professional, and it was fun to have my trial hair and makeup done by them. I only had vague ideas of what I wanted for my updo and makeup, but these artists did their magic and I was amazed by the outcome. I trust them completely with my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup on my wedding day.

For years I’ve been trying to find an amazing stylist that I can trust with my hair and then I found Karla. Hands down the very best hair stylist I’ve met in a very long time. I may not be able to go to her often but when I do she slays my hair every time! My mom even goes to her now and absolutely loves going to Karla. It doesn’t even feel like I’m at the salon I feel like I’m at my best friends house! And now she does makeup which is the best! Definitely beat my face for my birthday!!! You would have to be out of your mind to not get your hair or makeup done by Karla!!!!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.
