Kelsey was my make-up artist for a series of short films that I acted in. She is a very talented artist and I am always impressed with the work she has done for me as a make-up artist, as well as with photographs of her work I have seen of others' makeup & hair. Kelsey is very professional and her personable & relaxed demeanor always puts me at ease. I look forward to having her do my hair soon!

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.

Very first time getting my makeup done and I can honestly say I love it!! My makeup artist Meagan was very professional and easy to talk to. She made me feel very comfortable and informed me about the products she uses. I gave her an idea of what I wanted and she did exactly that! I definitely recommend her to everyone! I received so many wonderful compliments on my makeup. She's awesome and I will be returning! Thanks!

I have been going out of my way to schedule the days of my events to make sure katie does my makeup for years. I am a VERY picky person when it comes to my face and for the last 8 years I have not been disappointed once! I am confident she will be able to do whatever look I throw at her. Me, my sister and mother would not recommend any make up artist over katie. I would give her 5 stars over and over again

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!

I was a model for Miranda's make up and a photographer shoot! She has a face mold and did full on green fairy magical make up. It turned out so well and she came right to my house to do it all. Miranda is so nice and I got comfortable with her so quickly which made it easier as the person getting make up. All our photos turned out amazing and I'd never back down from another opportunity with this talented artist! :)

    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.

      About

      I've been a makeup artist for over 20 years. I do makeup for special occasions, as follows: engagement photos, showers, weddings and any event that you need to go to and feel pretty. As a makeup artist, I believe that we all have special features, and it's about bringing them out, either by contouring cheekbones or your nose or adding fake eyelashes. I love what I do, especially being a part of the wedding day. I'm all about making your life easier, especially on your big day. I can come to you and your bridal party. I use amazing products from all over. I'm not prone to use and stick to one. There are different products that I like. MAC, NARS, Color Lab, and Urban Decay are a few of my favorites. I don't have a website set up, but I do have a portfolio with before-and-after pictures that I'm sure you'll be amazed with.

      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.
