We hired Mary Katie to help us look our best for our family photos. She is a very sweet person. Most importantly, she is a total professional. She made us all look beautiful. Additionally, the products she used were not cakey or flakey. All makeup products were light and lasted for a very long time. I loved what she did with my eyes. She did a smokey look and I received many compliments. I will definitely use Mary Katie again.

I hired Esha this past weekend to do my hair and makeup. Esha was a total professional and did an amazing make up job, not just for me but also for all the bridesmaids. I will definitely hire Esha again to get my make up done.

Aubrielle was perfect! She applied makeup on my stepdaughter's face for her prom and she outshined each and every girl at the prom. Her look was nude with a splash of glam. Not only was she on time, applied the makeup well, and super nice, she educated me on the who, what, when, where, how, and why on applying and using makeup. Too bad she is located in Maryland because I am getting married in Chicago. I hope I am able to find someone just as good. In the meantime, going forward, I will be using her for any upcoming events. Thanks Aubry! :-)

Lynette was prompt, professional and FUN! Not to mention the absolutely awesome makeup services that she provided for our event. Lynette absolutely transformed us and her makeup choices could not have fit our occasion or our outfits, more perfectly. I would definitely call upon Lynette again with no hesitation. Thank you, Lynette, you were amazing!

I loved my experience with Jayde during my makeup trial. I wanted someone who was not only professional and great at what they do, but also personable. Not only did she beat my face to the gods (lol), she was also very funny and cool to talk to. She is now officially the makeup artist that my family and I will use in a lot of official events. I am confident that she will make me the most beautiful bride on my wedding day.

Summer did such an exceptional job on the make up for my wedding! Not only are her makeup skills top notch, she is also very down to earth and caring which is exactly what you need on your wedding day! She did makeup for myself, my 7 bridesmaids, my mother and my step mother and everyone looked absolutely stunning!!! The makeup also lasts ALL DAY LONG! You will not be disappointed by Summer's work ethic, bright personality and creative genius. The onsite makeup also created a relaxed atmosphere that I would highly recommend to every bride out there. Do yourself a favor and hire Summer for onsite makeup needs! She will blow you away, trust me! :)

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.

She was fantastic! All of my bridesmaids hair looked fabulous, my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. She was able to do everything from just a few inspiration photos. She was punctual and very easy to work with and she was able to do my mothers makeup even though she wasn’t originally asked to when hired. Great quality, great qualifications, great pricing, AND able to do both hair and makeup.

Jamilah did makeup for my photoshoots. She replied promptly to my request and was on time at 7 am both days. She was able to create two different looks - a natural one and a dramatic one. She did a good job of matching my skin tone, which is important as a woman of color. Very professional and was able to explain what she was doing each step of the way. The pictures turned out great!

What a blessing to have come into contact with MUA Rita for my last minute bday party!!! Not only did she free her scheduled to BEAT my face for my 40th birthday party, but she also stayed after finishing my makeup to help me style my hair and all the finishing touches. It felt more like a good friend had stopped by to make sure my night got off to a BEAUTIFUL start. Forever grateful!!! :) Nichole Hyattsville, MD

I had my makeup done for a formal event that I was attending. Martha was amazing from start to finish. She was quick to respond when I reached out to her and set up an appointment time that would work for me. When I arrived at her location she was totally prepared for me. We quickly collaborated on what I wanted and she got to work. She was efficient and professional throughout the entire appointment. Her work was amazing! My biggest concern was making sure that it would stay on for the course of the event and while I did end up sweating off most of my foundation (lots of dancing in a hot room), my makeup still looked beautiful. I will continue to use Martha for any of my make up needs. Her professionalism, experience, talent, and honest, sweet, and caring personality are totally worth it!!

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.

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.
