OMG! Where would I start?! I needed to have some professional business head shots done for my upcoming business launch so I started looking for a makeup artist. Krista came up as the top Thumbtack artist in my search area and I felt that, after checking out her reviews and website, she was the artist for me. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER with my choice!! I am a woman "of a certain age" (ok; I'm 51) so it was important to me that my look reflected the very best professional, energetic me. I am THRILLED with the results! I have included a Before and several After pics (Krista took these Afters... Who knew that she is also very talented photog to boot!?!). Happy! Happy! Happy! I should mention that I do not normally wear very much makeup... Mascara is my product of choice, so I was a little nervous that I might not look "natural" with all the makeup being applied. Krista reassured me all through the process, explaining how lighting and angles can affect how the makeup will show up in photos, taking photos along the way to demonstrate her point. She is truly Makeup MacGyver. TRUST her advice!! It was bang on. As well, she kept me laughing all through the shoot. She is such a warm and funny human being. This has been by far one of my most favorite experiences in recent memory! I will definitely be hiring Krista for all of my business event needs and I really think that you should hire her too!

Toia was beyond amazing. She was able to transform this simple girl into someone glamorous. She deserves the title of beautychakra. My makeup lasted all day despite the hot sun and some serious Latin dancing. The beautychakra fantastic quality, value, more than expected results for a very fair price. Will use her again for future events 😀👍.

Very professional lady and very nice lady. She made my event very special. I even had "butterflies" before event. She put on some music to help calm my nerves. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has a special event come up. She also arranged for my hair to be done at the same location as my makeup. Very much appreciate all of the hard work and details that Theresa provided for my event. If I ever have another event, I would call Theresa again. Highly recommended. Thank you Theresa.

    Camelia has done an outstanding job. Not only does her talent show in her work, but her attitude and expertise surpass no other in her field. Never have I seen such an amazing talent. She has a natural apptitude, a natural passion for the hair and makeup industry. She knows without a doubt what will work and what wont on a person. An eye for detail not many stylists possess. The details are what make this young woman highly sought after. I have seen many many stylists over the yrs. But her work is by far has been most amazing. Its not enough to call yourself a stylist, Camelia has shown this world time and time again that you cant replace the passion or "know how" it takes to BE a successful stylist. I have enjoyed seeing her through last couple of yrs. The quality of her work is bar none to anyone I have ever known! Ms. Camelia is an asset to anyone that requires her expertise. You wont go wrong!

    Karyn did my competition hair and makeup for my first ever competition. To this day, it was my favorite make up job yet. It looked perfect just enough but not,overly done. Not only is she incredible but she is such a sweet soul. I had a fun time carrying conversation with her. I would recommend her any day.

    Donnie is so fun to work with! She did my makeup for a photoshoot later in the day and I was very happy! Be aware that she has what I call a large personality (which complemented my extrovert nature). Out of everything, I have to say she rocked my eyes to the max! She helped me get into my dress and jewelry and away I went! Thanks so much Donnie! I highly recommend!

    I was fortunate to have the beautiful Ms. Iris apply my makeup before a Davids Bridal gown showcase and I have never felt more beautiful. I was especially pleased with her application of my eye makeup. I look forward to working with her again!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.
