Kelsey styled my hair for an important event and did a wonderful job. My hair stayed perfect all day and was exactly what I asked for. She's a fun girl to chat with and she makes you fell very comfortable and welcome when you are in her chair. Her makeup skills are unmatched. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a stylish and creative hairdresser or makeup artist.

Brandi provided makeup application lessons for my friend and I. I was impressed with Brandi's professionalism. She was punctual, transformed her work area to make me feel like I was in a makeup studio, and provided great tips. I especially appreciated that she modeled how to apply the makeup, then allowed me to practice myself. I truly learned a lot during her instruction, and will definitely use her services again.

Christine was the makeup artist for my sister's wedding and she was absolutely phenomenal. She was at the salon before we were, was very upbeat and was a joy to be around. The work she did was beautifully done for each individual. Christine was very professional and well prepared. She was very friendly and had no problem doing different looks for my sister and her bridemaids (such as myself). Highly recommend Christine, will not disappoint!

I've had the opportunity to have Cher Jay do a makeup application on me. I've been doing makeup on myself as long as I can remember and have had other people apply makeup on me but my experience with Cher Jay was one of a kind. His techniques had me curious as to how he did it. My overall look was a soft, warm and natural look but it brought out specific features on me that I've never paid much attention to. I loved my eyebrows! He softened up the arch of them with a rounder appearance and it really made a difference. My foundation looked flawless and the contouring was complimentary to highlighting my cheekbones and jawline. I haven't felt this pretty in a long time! He was very professional, pausing here and there to make sure I was doing good and providing me sneak peeks at what he was doing. I felt that he cared about my opinions even though I didn't have any since I loved everything he was doing! He is very thorough, very clean (constantly sanitizing his equipment and his hands), and the appointment stayed on track. I couldn't be more happy and would recommend him to anyone who's looking for to feel beautiful from the inside out.

Ashley did my makeup for my engagement photos and I was thrilled with my look! I wanted to look like the best version of myself and she achieved just that! I've had my makeup done in the past, but this was my first really good experience. I will definitely be working with Ashley in the future for upcoming special events!

    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.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
