I wrote a previous review in August. Cheryl did my bridal makeup for my wedding as well as my bridesmaids. She was amazing! Makeup did not budge from 8a to 2a the next day. I had 4 outfit changes and was sweating. Only touch up I needed was lipgloss.

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.

Angel did an incredible job on our hair and makeup for my sister's wedding! There were three of us and my 17 year old niece who generally wears little makeup was so impressed with how Angel did her makeup, she wants to see if she's available to do her makeup for prom! Thank you Angel for everything!!

Theresa is very friendly and talented! She did my wedding makeup as well as the makeup for my bridesmaids, my mother and the groom's mother. She had a lot of people to do, but she got them all done and everyone looked great! As a bonus, the makeup lasted all night!

Hanna is insanely talented. I'm a professional photographer and have hired Hanna for more jobs for my models than I can count, and every time she nails it. She listens to my ideas and interprets them in a way that fits perfectly with what I need for my photo shoots. Plus, and this is HUGE in my line of work, she is able to stick to the schedule and never runs over into the time scheduled for shooting (something I've had other makeup artists do). Not only is Hanna talented, but she comes with a down to earth and laid back approach, and a great sense of humor.

Laura provided makeup for my best friend who was the Bride and her entire wedding party. I was one of the many bridesmaids that got the pleasure of being dolled up by her. She made me feel gorgeous and my makeup lasted through all of the day and evenings festivities! She had a good amount of bridesmaid to work on and I felt each got the special attention they deserved. Everyone looked amazing! I would highly recommend Laura for your next special event or occasion.

    Sarah Shaw did mine and my girls makeup for my wedding. She was very professional and did a beautiful job! After a super successful trial run, I knew I chose the right person for the job and on the day of the wedding, I felt amazing. I told her what look/feel I was going for and she nailed it. I would recommend Sarah for any event!

        Andy did my makeup for my wedding and I loved how it came out! I don't usually wear make up so I wanted a natural look and thats exactly what she did. She was very friendly and professional. I recommend her to anyone I know looking to get their make up professionally done.

        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.

        Ahh I am so glad that I found Tiffany. I wanted a very natural look and she did just that! It's the most beautiful I have ever felt and I loved that I look like me not a perfect doll on my wedding. My hair was so romantic and young! And oh my girls rocked it! She was able to manage to work with a variety of hair (long, short, curly, straight, thick, thin). Her assistant make up artist was fantastic! Tiffany was just adorable and she is soo reasonable and so accomodating! Will definitely contract her services again!

        Amanda is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!! She had me (bride) and three other bridesmaids on my wedding day. Amanda showed up ready to work and stayed right on schedule the entire time. I received sooooo many compliments on how stunning I looked on my wedding day. I would recommend her for any event!!! Note the four women Amanda worked on we're all very different complexions and looks. All I can say is wow. And my makeup was perfect ALL DAY!!!!

            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.

            Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
