Valen is was absolutely great for my event. We did a trial run which I would definitely recommend. It helped get both of us on the same page for what I was hoping for and what I would look like with certain styles. At the real event, Valen’s makeup made me feel very beautiful and glamorous with my theme without making me feel like I wasn’t myself and my hair looked great without looking too crunchy or plastic with hairspray. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist!

Cheryl is very professional makeup artist. She responds to my inquiries even before the day of our appointment. I had flaky skin during my event but she was able to work it around to very flawless glowing skin.

Carolina and her husband were amazing! They saved my day after my makeup artist cancelled last minute the week before my wedding. They were professional, on time, and made my day incredibly relaxed and wonderful! They were wonderful with my 10 year old daughter! They finished in a very reasonable amount of time so i was not rushed at all! They made my day amazing and i could not have asked for anything more! My makeup and hair came out amazing i truly have never felt more beautiful in my life! They were better then i could have ever expected!

Tasha was one of the bridal makeup artists that my sister had a trial with. My sister loved the hair and the way Tasha plumped up her lips. Tasha drove to my sister, brought in all the equipment and even stayed late to ensure that we had an opportunity to see the finished product. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. We ended up going with someone who had more experience with Indian skin and hair for the wedding. However, Tasha's work quality in the trial was really good and I just had to leave this review!

Chris did my bridal hair and makeup as well as the hair and makeup of a handful of ladies for my wedding. I cannot speak highly enough of the work she did. She understood exactly what each of us wanted, was happy to make any adjustments we requested, and made us all look absolutely fabulous. She is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I would recommend her to anyone.

I cannot recommend Erin and Laura enough. I hired them to do my wedding makeup and hair for my wedding party. They were very punctual and accommodating, even when I asked for a venue change not long before the date. I showed Laura a few photos of what I wanted and she was able to reproduce the look perfectly. Erin received minimal instructions from me and did a beautiful job with all my bridesmaids. I was warned that non-Asian makeup artists might have trouble working with Asian faces and hair, but these two had no difficulty at all. And for the price, it's a steal.

I saw her reviews and immediately wanted her. I told Khushboo that I was in need of a makeup artist for my brother’s graduation. Now, it’s not a normal graduation and many people are showing up fashionable. So I needed a artist who was fast and efficient and Khushboo beat all my expectations. I will definitely hire her again for a second time because she was wonderful!!

I feel so lucky to have been referred to Michelle when planning my wedding!! She is the absolute best makeup artist I have ever worked with, and made everybody stunning on my wedding day. We were thrilled to book her for my sister's wedding as well, where she worked her magic on the bride and 9 bridesmaids with time to spare! She manages to seamlessly move from each person's individual style to the next, and really listens to everybody's requests with perfect results every time! If you're lucky enough to have Michelle there on your wedding day (or any event), you don't have to worry about anything else:)

I have never been more confident in my makeup skills after having my makeup lesson with Ashley! She is incredibly patient and knowledgeable about makeup application and has a fantastic teaching style. I would recommend her to anyone looking for tips and tricks on how to apply makeup. I would also hire her to do my makeup for special occasions. Hands down one of the best makeup artists I’ve ever met (and I’ve met a ton over my lifetime).

Nic is an amazing amazing, bubbly, smiley, person that puts you at ease. She was very attentive and was able to handle all of my crazy requests. She was great when it came to the details and was always checking in with me throughout the process to make sure I liked what I saw. In the case that I didn't like something she was quick to adjust. Overall Nic did a wonderful job creating my natural glowing bride look and I highly recommend her to others!

Nicole has done a video shoot "regular" makeup look for me and it was wonderful, very natural. As a new business owner my video had to be fun and inviting but I wanted a very neutral look. I also had Nicole do an over the top look for an event that was a masquerade ball. She is artistry in makeup and it was a transforming look to compliment my costume and my character. I have to say Nicole is the whole package in service offerings. She can do anything!

I have had my makeup done by Nefris 4 times in the last year and she's done amazing work each time! She really proves how much she cares about her work with how meticulous she is. The fact that she has a great personality is an additional perk. I will certainly continue being a repeat customer for every and any special occasion.

I’ve been a long time customer of Cindy’s. Going on 5+ years now. She’s an expert in cutting my hair, coloring my hair, and styling it. I always leave her chair feeling beautiful. I’ve also seen her work first-hand on brides and entire wedding parties from makeup to hair. You’re in good hands with Cindy. She always takes her time and doesn’t end a job until you’re 1000% happy. The passion in her work is what keeps me a happy, satisfied client. I’ve recommended her to all my friends and family without a second thought.

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 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.

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.
