I can't believe it's taken me this long to sing Erin's praises! She was the second makeup artist we contacted for wedding make up (don't even ask about the first one). Erin was calm and cool and funny. She put us at ease during the practice round and was even better on the big day! She completely understood the look we wanted and her work was impeccable. We looked like our best, youthful selves and it was the perfect start to the best day of our lives.

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.

Katie came to my home to do a last minute makeup job for me for my 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration. She was prompt and courteous . She was always sanitizing her equipment, a fact that I love. Her recommendations were right on point and then she focused in on what I wanted . Everyone said I looked amazing! And you know what...I did! Katie took a few years off, without making me look like a youngster, and that I truly loved. All in all I HIGHLY recommend her to do any job...I have my makeup artist for every special event! Thank you Katie!

First let me say, Tenia is beyond a gifted makeup artist. I arrived late to my venue and stressed out. When I entered the room, a hot mess, Tenia was setup, patiently waiting for me. She calmed me down and did her magic; as they say, “My face was beat for the gods”. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t recognize myself. I cannot thank Tenia enough for making me look and feel like a Queen. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist.

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!

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! :-)

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.

Mia was amazing! I hired her to do makeup for the bridesmaids in my wedding. I was a bit nervous about booking someone from the internet without meeting her for such an important day - so we arranged an in home trial. She came to me, did my makeup and was awesome. She has a great sense of humor and definitely calmed my fears. On the day of the wedding, she showed up calm and prepared - my bridal party had all different types of skin tones and facial types and she made each one look beautiful. She did lashes on those that wanted them and it made SUCH a huge difference in the pictures. She was a wonderful makeup artist and I would definitely recommend hiring her for your event!!

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.

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 did a great job for my wedding makeup. Always on time. Reasonable price. Flexible. I would admit that she got the talent! I told her that I wanted lighter makeup than the trail, and she used the right amount of everything that was definitely perfect. Everyone said I was absolutely beautiful on my special day. Thank you very much, Jeanette.

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.
