Kelsey did my hair and makeup for my wedding this past July. She was on time and kind enough to do everything at my parents house. I showed her pictures of what I was going for and she made me look and feel more beautiful than the models in the pictures. She was easy to talk to and made the process so comfortable and relaxing on a stressful morning. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Juna was wonderful! She did my makeup on my wedding day, as well as the makeup of several family members. She did an amazing job, was super personable and friendly, had high quality products, and really listened to what each person wanted. I'd recommend her 100%.

I found Crystal last minute on Thumbtack after my previous wedding day makeup artist cancelled on me shortly before my wedding. Crystal was able to fit me in on short notice. Despite being the impending wedding she found time to squeeze in a trial (and even drove to me). During the trial she asked numerous questions about the wedding, the look I was going for and my taste preferences. I greatly appreciated her allowing so much feedback. In addition to listening to my opinions, she was also incredibly professional and friendly. On the day of my wedding she showed up early and ready to go. The makeup turned out perfectly. She also gave me a wonderful goody bag for touch ups throughout the day. While applying the makeup she helped keep me calm by being incredibly personable. I appreciated having her as an extra cheerleader in my corner. If you are looking for a make-up artist who is knowledgeable, personable, and professional I would highly recommend Crystal.

Tiffany did my makeup for my engagement pictures last year. I was thrilled with the finished product! The airbrush makeup was fantastic! We took pictures on a very hot summer day, and even after the heat, walking through downtown Birmingham, and rubbing my face through out the day my makeup stayed put. Tiffany captured the look I was going for and I got a lot of compliments on how flawless it looked. Tiffany is very sweet and very professional. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your wedding day,engagement pictures, prom etc. Tiffany and the airbrush makeup are the way to go! I am so happy I chose Tiffany Elder.

Make-up from Tia Regular is flawless.This makeup artist from Detroit will have you right and tight for whatever event your going to.Using her own makeup line dollfacer cosmetics, she has diversity to create a face.Being one of her clients is amazing.My first experience with the lovely lady was for the then sold out Between the Sheets concert at Joe Louis Arena,starring R&b singers Trey Songz and Chris Brown.I was giving a look that made my feel beautiful and confident.My look insisted of contouring of the cheekbones for a slimming face effect,a mocha sparkling Smokey eye.Also upper and bottom lashes with a pink lip for a pop of color.Not only was I ready for the concert,I was ready as if I had backstage passes for a meet and greet.In my opinion Tia gives inspiration for women to uplift themselves as a person,not only with her insight on life,but with her makeup talent.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Beauty by KD. I was hesitant at first because I've had my makeup done before and felt like the artist didnt listen, but not Beauty By KD. She did my makeup for a wedding, and she was very friendly, really listened to what kind of makeup and nails I wanted and took her time and didnt rush. Definitely coming back!

Christine did my makeup for my wedding, as well as some of the wedding party. She traveled to my home before the wedding for a makeup trial, and really listened to what I wanted. We made some small adjustments, and on the day of the wedding it was perfect. She arrived early to set up, and would ask if the pressure was OK while she was applying makeup, and was very easy to get along with. This was the first time I didn’t get a headache while somebody else applied my eyeliner. My bridal party looked stunning, and I’ve never felt so beautiful in my life. The reception lasted well after midnight, and my face still held up longer than I did.

    Ladies Ladies Ladies Mrs. Hill is a amazing makeup artist. She is very professional. She took the time to find out what colors we were working with what time of day the event was what was the event was it inside or outside all of these things play into what type of application you want for the best possible look.It looks like she is painting a canvas when she is applying the makeup on your face. She takes a clean blank canvas and turns it to a thing of beauty. My daughter's makeup was so natural and beautiful for her prom. My baby was already beautiful but her makeup application just made her more beautiful. I can not say enough wonderful things about our experience. If you want a Natural glow for your special occasion take your canvas to Mrs Hill and allow her creative juices to flow i just love her thank you thank you thank for making my baby's look for prom great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Milissa did my makeup for my wedding and I can't say enough good things. It looked even better than I could have imagined. She also helped do my bridesmaids and my mom's makeup and they all looked stunning. She was also on time, and helped keep 12 girls on schedule which is no easy task! I highly recommend Milissa! Thank you, again!!!

        I have been a client of Russ's for the past 3 years and I couldn't be happier with all of the services he provides. He is my absolute go-to for professional makeup application whenever I have a special event to attend and he is just as talented at giving me makeup application lessons. Russ teaches in such a way that I never feel overwhelmed, and he always makes sure that I am comfortable applying each technique he's taught me before I leave. I absolutely LOVE my eyelash extensions that he put on me. They are so easy to maintain and the compliments I receive on them alone are worth the time and cost. I also get my brows shaped by him as well as go to him for my spray tans. Every service he offers is executed to perfection and performed in the most professional manner all the while being extremely affordable. Russ is a complete beauty expert and he never fails to make me feel amazing inside and out everytime I leave his studio.

        I have worked with Jeanette for 10 years, both as a model and makeup artist for still photography. As a model, Jeanette knows how to "work it", she knows the technical aspects of lighting, stage direction and interaction, and she understands her role as a model as it relates to the project. As a makeup artist she is always on the ball and attentive to the need of the shoot. Working with male executives and doctors who are not used to having makeup applied, she is respectful and puts the client at ease. Her practices and training in the use of makeup follow safety and sanitary standards. Jeanette's work speaks for itself. She is a multi-talented professional that is an asset to any production.


        I am a traveling makeup artist. I have 7 years of experience. I am available for weddings, proms, girl's nights and special events. I can do costume and theatrical makeup. Eyebrow shaping services are also available. Light hairstyling services are also available.

        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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
