This was BY FAR the most beautiful I have ever felt. Betsy is an absolute doll and such a incredibly wonderful person to work with. I have no clue how she does the work she does, but the results are beyond stunning. I've always been a huge tomboy but had a gala coming up with a group of friends that was 'Old Hollywood' themed. She made me look STUNNING and I felt so amazing all night long. I'm also getting married later this year and am already planning 100% for her to be my 'makeup artist' through the entire process. Thank you so much, Betsy!!!! You know exactly how to create beauty :)

SM Makeup was fantastic! Chelsy was the lead stylist for our day and Sarah was the lead makeup artist. They were absolutely wonderful. They listened to what each person wanted ranging from the bride to bridesmaids to moms and grandmas. Each lady looked stunning. The team was professional, accommodating, and fun. SM Makeup was among the best priced in the Minneapolis are too. I highly recommend to any bride!

Caitlin is extremely professional and kind-hearted, and has a way to make people feel at ease. She started by showing me her portfolio of people whose makeup she has done, and then asked a few questions as to what I was really looking for, and we looked at pictures and talked until we had come to an agreement! She let me give feedback and look at myself throughout the process to make sure we were on the same page. She did my makeup and my hair. Overall it was a great experience and I was gorgeous afterwards!!

Aleah was great! She trekked in the snowstorm to my office to do my makeup prior to a video shoot. I have not had good experiences in the past with makeup artists...they always make me look like someone else! Aleah listened to me and truly gave the soft, not-too-made-up look I was seeking. I now just hired her to do the makeup for my whole company on the day we are having photos taken for our website. She is fantastic!

Taylor did the makeup for my wedding day and is such a talented makeup artist!!! We did a trial a few weeks before and made a few changes for the exact look I was hoping for on my wedding day. My skin looked great which is a miracle because my skin is FAR from perfect! I honestly would not have felt as awesome as I did that day if it wasn't for Taylor doing my makeup. To top it off, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I highly recommend her for your wedding day or big event!!

I was first intrigued by Melissa because of her all-inclusive pricing for bridal and bridesmaid makeup, but if I knew then how great she would be to work with, I wouldn't have even looked at hiring anyone else. She is prompt, reliable, professional, and above all, good at what she does. The initial consultation was great too, and helped us come up with a "look" together before the big day. She was so great to work with, and though it's unnerving to truly trust someone with the biggest day of your life, she really delivered. She was funny, played music while we got ready, and helped put us all at ease and added to the fun of getting ready on my wedding day. We had a huge bridal and wedding party, so she brought an assistant to cut down on the stress and timing pressure, which I really appreciated too. I loved my wedding makeup, and my husband could not stop telling me how beautiful I was on our wedding day! Melissa was wonderful, fun, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced and reliable makeup artist for their wedding day.

I hired Lisa to do my makeup for my wedding this past October. She was fantastic! From our first conversation, she was incredibly friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Lisa made it a priority to understand the style of my wedding and bridal look, and was very helpful in providing makeup ideas that would work for me. She was on-time and ready to go for both my trial run and wedding day. She also did a great job helping my sister and MOH with her makeup. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a makeup artist! I cannot say enough about her talent and the quality of her work!

We just had our trial makeup session few days ago and I had an AMAZING experience with Jen. She was attentive, super helpful with suggestions and catered to my skins needs. We got to try various products that ultimately resulted in a beautiful outcome that was loved by us all. Cant wait to have her do my makeup on my actual event <3

      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 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.
