I was looking for a hair and makeup artist for a work gala last month. I really wanted to sport a red carpet look. From the get go, Carolina was prompt at responding to my queries and eager to work with me. She assured me she could accommodate the look I was going for, and definitely delivered. The day of the event, she met me at my sister's house where I was getting ready, and was super professional and helpful even though I was running late. She never rushed me or herself, and talked me through the process as she went along. My sisters and I had a lot of fun talking with her throughout the appointment as well. Once finished, she adjusted any little thing I asked for, and even left me with the little tube of lip gloss she used to reapply as needed throughout my evening. Such a fun and easygoing experience, and the results were out of this world! I am continuing to receive compliments on how I looked to this day! I would definitely recommend this company and use them again. Thanks Carolina!!

I hired Theresa Norvicky to do the bridal party’s makeup for my daughter’s wedding at the Harraseeket June 23, 2018. From the very first contact through email and phone calls, Theresa presented as a true professional. She was very detailed in what she offered for services and was very accommodating to meet our groups specific requests and timeline as well. She kept in contact and was very prompt in returning phone calls or emails on any questions or changes we had. As eye lashes later became a request and the mothers of the bride and groom were added to the list, she immediately added an assistant and changed her arrival time in order to meet the demands and timeline of a 1:00 PM wedding. It was very clear Theresa knew the art of makeup.... and was going to make sure each client got the best results !!! Each and every bridesmaid and mother were very very pleased with their makeover ....and the best part my daughter, the bride was amazed how beautiful they all looked! To let you know how good Theresa is at her work of makeup artistry...... my daughter..... the bride , had no intentions of having her makeup done professionally. Even after the rehearsal at the church, the night before ,... she was still saying , “ I’m doing my own makeup. “ After seeing the makeovers of each bridesmaid the day of the wedding, she was amazed what a beautiful job Theresa had done. Needless to say my daughter’s request... Theresa Norvicky did do my daughter’s makeup as well! She not only was beautiful but radiant!! I highly recommend Theresa for your special occasion makeover. She is a true professional makeup artist who cares about the end results. Thanks Theresa for the finishing touches you performed on my daughter’s wedding day! Jayne Libbey

When I need a MUA I will now just go to Jennifer! Her work is amazing!!!! I was at first nervous going on this website trying to find someone to do my prom makeup (prom was also a little over a week away, I was on a time crunch!). But I found Jennifer and instantly fell in love with her makeup looks. I messaged her in hopes she was available and she was! I got extremely excited to know someone like Jennifer was going to do my makeup and knew what they were doing. She came to my house 15 minutes early to set up. She is a big dog lover which is good if you have a dog! Throughout the makeup process, she made me feel secure about doing my makeup. She has lots of products she chooses from as well as knowledge of each product. Overall the look was phenomenal! I fell in love with the look instantly. Jennifers work is great and she really takes into consideration of each client she has on how to make them feel there most beautiful. 10/10 recommend Jennifer! P.S My highlight was poppin'!!

Alyssa was wonderful to work with! She did my makeup (and a few bridesmaids) for my wedding day in September. I received a lot of compliments on my makeup and was she very accommodating to some last minute makeup changes that we didn't do during our trial. She is very professional and I would highly recommend her!

Of all the different make up artists I've been to, Jazmin is by far the best. Not only is she patient and attentive to detail, but she makes sure every aspect is perfect. I've had my makeup done by Jazmin for all different events, whether it be prom, a party, or just date night -- and she kills it every time. Whether you prefer a subtle look or dramatic, she completely fulfills your wishes and enhances your natural beauty. My favorite thing about Jazmin is her honesty and passion (two crucial characteristics in her line of work.) There have been times where I've showed her pictures of how I think I want my makeup to look, and she's said to me, "I don't know if that'll blend well with your eye color. What if we try this instead?" and the results have come out better than I could've possibly imagined. I always look forward to the next time I can get my make up done by Jazmin. I highly recommend her to everyone!

Gina was the hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding. She was extremely thorough but managed her time very well. She was able to complete hair for 2 mothers, 5 bridesmaids, and 1 bride in about 4 hours! Everyone was very pleased with the individualized style Gina choose for them and she was just amazing. She had all of her supplies organized on the table and ready to go right away. I have not a single complaint.

I recently hired Ali to do makeup for my wedding for myself, mom, and bridesmaids, and she did such a stellar job. Ali is professional, calm, incredibly talented, and checks in a lot to make sure you're happy with the makeup. It can be a stressful day for a bride and I felt like she paid attention all day to make sure I was comfortable, prepared, and enjoying the process. I highly, highly recommend Ali - my wedding makeup was flawless and she was easy to work with and super responsive.

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.
