Lanie did a great job with our makeup, the airbrushing makeup she used held up even through the pictures we took outside in 100 degree heat! I was definitely grateful I had chosen to use her at the end of my big day!

I needed makeup for my wedding at the last minute. I was originally going to go to a salesperson at a nearby mall, but after trying a few out I discovered the ones available were duds. I was also super concerned about the cost of a free lance professional makeup artist, which is why I avoided it at first. Jessica was not only extremely affordable, but she was professional, fast, flexible, personable, and very in tune to what I wanted. I told her I wanted dark and dramatic, she told me I shouldn't with my dress. I went home to my dress after the trial, and saw immediately she was right! Let her suggest what you need! She also takes part in face/body paint, drag makeup, celebrity magazine shoots, hair design, clothing design...she is limitless! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for event makeup.

Traci was extremely professional and reasonable. I attended a wedding and everyone raved about how great my makeup looked. I was a little nervous about using this site and booking an artist that had never done my makeup before, but the experience was well worth it and even better, I have another excellent makeup artists that I can add to my Rolodex

My daughter's senior prom was this year 2015. I knew I wanted her to look spectacular so I got a makeup artist instead of doing her makeup myself.My daughter HATES makeup, but by the time Dawn got finished, she was in love with her new look! I was thrilled, my family and neighbors loved her new look! I thank Dawn J. for helping my daughter go to her senior prom looking like the true diva she is! I would recommend her for any type of event! Thanks Dawn!

Tiffany has done my make-up many times for numerous shoots and I also love her work. Tiffany is very professional and detail oriented in her profession. Her work is excellent and she is also very creative. She is hands down one of the best makeup artists that I have worked with.

Dara was great to work with for my wedding makeup. She does great work, and our photos prove it. She was able to give each of us a different look, and we all looked great! She was very accommodating and open to last minute changes. The day of, we added one more girl for makeup, and she still finished on time. Dara was professional, very sweet, easy to contact, and gave us that extra boost of confidence for our special day. Thanks Dara! I will be recommending you!

    I decided to go with Tara Lowery for my makeup need on my special day. I do not reside in STL so all communication was completed via email. She responded to all my questions and helped me decide a look! Ms. Tara exemplifies true passion for the art of enhancing beauty. She was professional, on-time and down to earth. Not once did I question her expertise (as this was only my second time wearing makeup). I was greatly surprised by the end result. I loved everything about her and the end result. Tara's boutique was a very beautiful space. It made you feel welcomed and her personal touch met you at the door. Overall, it was a great experience and I give it a superior rating! My guests LOVED my makeup and you will not be dissatisfied either!!!

        Claire was absolutely fantastic! She did my makeup for my wedding along with makeup on my 2 bridesmaids, mother, and grandmother. Everyone looked gorgeous from morning to night. Our pictures were done for about 3 hours outside on one of the hottest days of the year and somehow no one looked to be melting (one of my biggest fears). Not only was everyone beautiful, but Claire was fun and professional. I was extremely happy with my experience!

          I have worked with Elana for years. Her doing take up for me for special occasions like weddings, homecoming and prom. She even did my make up for photo shoots, and even when I changed the location on her at the last minute, she was able to drive out to me and was totally chill about it. The makeup was always great. The first time she did it I even kept the eye makeup on through the next day "(though she explicitly tells you not to, sorry Elana it was just too pretty!)”

          I had Pricillia do my makeup for my birthday and I asked for something that made my eyes pop but wasn't over-done looking. I got exactly that! She used colors and lashes on me that wouldn't be my normal go-to but I felt so comfortable and so glamorous on my special day! I loved her upbeat personality and she showed a lot of concern to make sure I was satisfied with the finished look and still felt comfortable and not over-done. I would recommend her to anybody who wants a great experience and an extremely talented artist to give them the ability to look and feel extraordinary! She's 5 stars in my book :)

            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.
