She was very down to earth when doing my make up while also staying professional. It was my first time ever getting my make up done and she made me feel very comfortable and there was not a moment where anything felt uncomfortable for me. As soon as I showed up, she was ready to do my makeup and the environment in which she did my makeup was very clean and relaxing.

This woman is all magic! I was in need of a makeup artist with talent at a good price and she was it! She was my fairy god mother on the day of prom because I felt like Cinderella! She came to my house, set up, and worked her magic! I highly recommend Shajarazade to anyone in need of a makeup artist who does good quality makeup for a reasonable price!

Terri is an amazing makeup artist, she and her assistant were prompt and fast. I hired her for my cousins' entire bridal party, the bride and 2 other family members including myself. She knows how to make you look like the best you, not a made up someone else. My mom hates makeup but she loved the natural look that Terri have her. I prefer bolder and contouring and for each makeup preference Terri was able to satisfy the bridesmaid. Her personality is funny, calming and easy going which is very helpful during hectic event days. I use many makeup artists while traveling and will use her again and again.

Wow! Words cannot express my makeup session with Natasha. I was in Charlotte for a wedding. She was the only makeup artist who responded on a Sunday. She was fifteen minutes early and the transformation was exceptional. She is a gem.

I worked with Que on a recent photoshoot. She was soley responsible for hair, makeup, and style. She was very professional. She even provided breakfast for us. Her vision was clear and she adjusted well to the weather conditions, which made the other models and myself very comfortable. I would recommend her for any special event.

Alice was the makeup artist for myself and and group of friends for NYE. She was very professional and courteous! She showed up early to set up to ensure she could take time to do everyone’s face exactly how they wanted it! She was very knowledgeable about what products to use for each skin type and shade. She had a variation of deep to fair tones, dry to oily skin types and did an amazing job on all of us! I got so many compliments on my makeup for the night! I can’t wait to book her for my next event!

    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.
