I met with Winstead at his place to do my make-up for my bridal shower that afternoon. From the beginning he was very professional starting with communication before the appointment, during, and even following up afterwards. I liked my makeup for my event and it lasted through the entire night.

It was a great experience. I am not much of a make-up person and Erin understood that. She was patient with me and gave me a look that made me feel comfortable in my own skin. I would definitely recommend her services to other brides and their parties!

Teresa and Lisa did a phenomenal job for my 12-person wedding group. Everyone from my 10-year old niece to my 70+-year old mother-in-law looked natural and polished. Nothing was over the top. Teresa was very responsive to my feedback from our trial and made adjustments on the day of my wedding that left both my new husband and me happy. I am sure I will be hiring Teresa again in the future!

Carlynn did a FANTASTIC JOB on my wedding day and bridal shower. Gave suggestions as needed and did 12 faces in 4 hours. With the help of her assistant! Make up lasted just about until the next day. Make up didnt feel heavy, too much , or didn't look caked on. It was just right. Matched all complexion, fair, dark, light , and medium! Can't wait to book her again!

Roma was a joy to work with from start to finish. She made everyone feel super comfortable and she made my already gorgeous mom and bridal party even more stunning. Really loved that she took the time to capture the look I was hoping to achieve, and the end result was better than I couldve hoped for. Everyone commented on how great the makeup was and I couldnt have been happier. I would highly recommend her!!

Ashley did an amazing job on the makeup for my wedding. I was so happy with how both my sister and my makeup looked. I was a little disappointed because we ran out of time. We started at 11:30 and had to leave by 1:30. There was only 3 of us, so I assumed 2 hours would be sufficient. My mom's makeup was not complete due to this. I fully believe that if Ashley had an hour to do my mom she would have been amazing as well! Thank you Ashley for all of your hard work.

I hired this company for hair and make-up for my wedding. They arrived on time (if not early :-) ) and got right to work. Both the hair and make-up artists were able to understand my bridesmaids and my visions and ensure that we looked our best. They accommodated all of my requests and did so with a smile. I would fully recommend this company and plan to use them again in the future for other events.

Rita is amazing!! She was the make-up artist for my entire wedding party including my mother and bridesmaids (7) and all of us were flawless!! I would recommend her to any and everyone!! She is patient and will listen to your desires for your make-up. Rita was professional and able to work very well with all of our different personalities. She was and still is a godsend. Every wedding picture that I have is gorgeous because of her work!! I wish I could rate her with a million stars!! -DMM (DMM 6/14/16)

Martha is absolutely amazing! She is talented and understands how to elevate each woman’s features. She understood how to apply my make up for two different events one that was for professional photos and one for a wedding and in both instances the make up was very different but definitely catered to my skin tone! She has a gift and can see beauty in everyone!

Marlisa was a joy to work with. I received so many compliments on my make-up. What I loved the most is my make-up didn't run or sweat off in the heat, that was a bonus for me. I would definitely recommend Marlisa for anyone in need of make-up services.

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.
