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 :)

Taylor did an amazing job! She took the time to listen and ensure she was giving each one of us exactly what we wanted! Everyone loved their makeup and her work seriously last all night long through crying and sweating on the dance floor I looked in a mirror at 11pm ( she did my makeup around 10am) and my makeup still looked perfect! She even helped my grandma out by covering a large bruise on her face. I couldn't be happier with the work she did for myself and all the lovely ladies in my wedding party! Plus she is very sweet and easy to talk to which is a great plus when she is spending hours on hours with you on your 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!

Heather is new to the makeup profession, but that does not show in her work. She is very timely and puts a 100% into her work. I have never had a time where I went out of an experience not liking the look. Heather is truly amazing and I will continue to recommend her to everyone.

    Mariya did an AMAZING job on getting me glammed up for a party. She knew exactly what shade to use on me and how to make my eyes pop and did exactly what i wanted! Looking back at pictures, I liked my makeup more that was done by Mariya than my makeup artist on my wedding day. 10/10 i would recommend her services and I'll be calling her again and again to get my makeup done by Mariya!

      Charity fixed my hair for my wedding. She did a great job, both at my trial and the day of the wedding. I really liked the hair products she used to keep my hair from getting oily throughout the day. She is easy to talk to and very understanding when I explained to her the type of updo that I wanted. I've recommended Charity to all my friends and family for formal updos! Thanks for making me feel beautiful :)

            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.
