Kelsey provided hair and make-up services for myself and make-up services for my bridesmaids for my December wedding. She was incredibly helpful and responsive while planning and arranged for another hair stylist to come with her to assist in doing my bridesmaids' hair. Both she and the other stylist were incredibly professional and sis spectacular work. Several guests comments on how well everyone's hair and make-up turned out. I would definitely use Kelsey again!

I found Trese while I was just winging it and hoping for the best, since I reached out for a MUA at the last possible minute. My makeup was PHENOMENAL. We laughed together the whole time, and I left with great face for the bridal party photo shoot I was attending. Highly recommended. Thanks again Trese!

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%.

Crystal was a pleasure to work with. She always arrived on time or early. She is very professional, but at the same time, it was just like hanging out with a friend. The makeup for my bridal party and I looked great and she addressed all of our concerns about it lasting through the night. The touch up kits she gave us were great, but I really didn't need too much touching up through the night. I highly recommend Crystal as a MUA and would use her again.

Jackie did a wonderful job from the moment she arrived until the minute she left. She was professional and courteous, and also just a good person to be around, as she kept me distracted and calm before my big day. I loved the products she used on me and the final product - my bridal makeup! - was outstanding. I found Jackie via Thumbtack and I am happy that I did. Highly recommend.

Sarah is an amazing make up artist!!! I have been using her for many years and have never been disappointed! I have used her for simple nights out, New Years ever, my wedding, baby shower, christening, etc. My wedding makeup was flawless and lasted all day. I could not have asked for anything better! My entire bridal party looked beautiful!! I received compliments on my makeup all day. She is very accomadating and always asks what look I would like. She comes to my home and is always on time and very thorough. My friends have used Sarah for their weddings too and were extremely happy with her work. She is the best!!! I love having her do my makeup!! I highly recommend Sarah as a make up artist!!!

Stephanie was great! She really took the time to understand what I was looking for in the session and provided not only fantastic skills in applying the make-up, but also a full consultation to help me understand some of the intricacies of color selection. I received exactly what I was looking for, but have never been able to create for myself. I will be using her services again and look forward to another wonderful experience.

Katie did my bridal party makeup for my wedding. She was amazing!!!! Katie got to our suite super early in the morning because I had a early wedding. I have a lot of bridesmaids and she was so fast and the looks were beautiful. I highly reccomend Katie for your makeup needs especially for timed high stress events like weddings.

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!

She was very prompt & on time for my appointment. She started with a consultation. She also let me know I had dry skin & educated me on what products to use. The makeup she did for my wedding & bridal party was amazing.

I had the privilege of getting my make up done by Cher Jay a couple of weeks ago. As a busy working mother of 3, it was so nice to feel glamorous for an evening! Cher Jay doesn't just do your makeup. He creates more of an "experience" instead. I was greeted and perched on to a movie star style chair. He had very high tech lighting that was specific for cosmetic/beauty services. He offered me a beverage, made sure I was comfortable and chit chatted with me about how I typically wear my make-up, etc. Cher Jay was very thorough in telling me exactly what he was doing. I told him to just create his own vision and that he certainly did! By the time I walked out of there, I was put together like I have never been before. His work was absolutely outstanding and not a pore went untouched! I loved the finished product so much, that I literally slept on my back all night. He did such an amazing job, that I managed to get another day out of it! Not many women would admit that... But it is a true testament to his work. I can't wait to see Cher Jay again!

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.

I have been getting my long, thick hair cut and styled by Rosie for almost 20 years. It's not easy to deal with thick hair. She has always done a great job! Up-dos, prom, weddings, and special occasion hair and makeup, she's does them all very well!

      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.
