Nancy is a very well experienced, exposed, and informed makeup artist. I did not know any technical way of explaining how I wanted my 'look' to be, but her warm personality blew away my worries. Through very easygoing chat, she was able to sense what I want, and created the perfect look ;) I also very much appreciated her close attention to natural, healthy, and hygene makeup using her top notch skills! Definitely recommend her!

Lindsay is remarkably creative and so sweet to work with! When I have a problem figuring out what to do with my hair (or makeup) she's right there with honest, good suggestions. Not only does she do a fantastic job, she's fun to talk to as well! It's an overall great experience!


I dedicate my time to make people look fabulous by braiding hair, applying makeup, eyelashes and eyebrows to make my design look uniform after braiding the hair. This is what I love doing.

I have been a self taught Make-up Artist for 7 years and counting. I attended Paul Mitchell Academy in the winter of 2012. The make-up course that was offered there DID NOT meet my expectations. So I withdrew and moved back to Fargo. I started at Josef's School of Hair Design in the spring of 2012. The make-up course there was being taught at a basic skill level which I feel I already accomplished and wanted more of a challenging experience. I took it upon myself to furthur my education and skill level through all available resources and continue to perfect my craft daily. This has been my passion since I was little and knew this was my calling in life. You will NEVER leave my chair unsatisfied. I will go above and beyond to make your experience worth your time and money. I will make sure you are as beautiful as you were once you entered the room but with just a kiss of makeup. I also assist my clients with beauty tips, advice and secrets. I graduated MUD (make-up designory) master of make-up artistry program in LA with a 4.0 to chase my dream of a special fx make-up artistry to the movies and television shows. I hope one day to teach make-up and maybe open my own school that just strictly teaches make-up since sadly there is no make-up artistry school in the midwest to my standards. My make-up skills have been featured in weddings, proms, burlesque shows, photo shoots and films (one film that won an award at the Portland Film Festival. In LA I demoed at comic con, worked at Emmy award winning Steve Prouty fusionfx shop (Mrs. Doubtfire) worked on many films, Tonedeaf, Scars (with producer Jackson Rathbone of the Twilight series) assisted professionals like international makeup artist Shanna Cistulli, worked alongside sculpture and makeup artist Michael Shawn McCracken, Ray Schaffer, I was special Effects makeup artist on the short film Hijab. My work was published in the Makeuo Designory’s schools 2018 catalog. Here are just a few of make-up products I use: Mostly M.A.C, Stila, Make-up Forever, BH Cosmetics, Nars, Sephora, Benefit, BenNye, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Laura Mercier, Marc Jacobs, Tarte, elciè foundation, Sugar pill and Bobbi Brown. Brush sets I use: M.A.C, Morphe, Sigma and Bobbi Brown Thanks for reading about me. I hope to work with you one day. Take care. The thing I love about Make-up is there is no limits to what you can do other than the limits you place on yourself.


I have been a licensed esthetician and makeup artist for 12 years. I love what I do, I can hardly call it work! I have experience with bridal parties, pageants, proms, photo shoots and more!

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.
