Vesta is amazing. My makeup artist cancelled a couple days before the wedding and I'm so happy Vesta was available. She really listens to what you want and doesn't cake on product like many other makeup artists, and it will last all night. I also had her do my hair and it was perfect and secure all night. I bought the wrong kind of extensions and instead of letting them go to waste vesta was able to use them to give my hair more body. I cannot say enough great things about her. Book her!

Sarah's work is exceptional and flawless, which were the commentaries that resulted from my look at my brother's wedding. She is professional,timely and organized. Sarah has been doing my hair (weaves: sew-in and wigs, braids) and makeup for the past 3 years in regards to all major events in my life. I have recommended colleagues, family members,and friends to her just by the look of her final masterpiece, which speaks for itself. She is a wonderful and talented makeup artists, who is also personable, accommodating, and pleasant to be around.

Tatiana was so great! She did my makeup on the day of my elopement in NYC! She showed up right on time and was very professional. She was also very sweet and I felt as if a friend was doing my makeup on the day of my wedding. I highly recommend her and would definitely hire her again :) thank you Tatiana!

Sharon and her crew did an amazing job with myself and my bridal party. Although the timing of the day was affected due to the amount of time spent on each person, they took their time on each person and everyone came out beautiful and flawless. Each of my bridesmaids had completely different skin tones and looks and the makeup artists were able make everyone look fabulous. After working with artists in the past, I appreciated how much time Sharon spent with me during my trial to get my look perfect. She is very patient and truly a perfectionist. She does an amazing job and her prices are very reasonable. I would definitely hire her again.

Mallory is the best. I've had my makeup done a number of times by makeup artists, some good and some bad, but none ever this awesome. I mean it, the whole experience from start to finish was superb. Mallory really knew what she was doing and her prices are fair. She accommodated my changing schedule and never made me feel like I was a pain in the butt. She was on time and made my experience very relaxing. The next special event I have, she is the one I will be calling first. Thanks Mallory!

I hired Remi to do my makeup for a wedding I was a part of. She did a phenomenal job! Remi arrived on time for my appointment to go over details for my look, which I appreciated. My face was very elegantly done and had the perfect natural look I was going for. Remi was very personable and made sure I was happy with the results. I definitely will be using her for all my events. I recommend her to all!

I was new to thumbtack and choosing a makeup artist for my wedding day seemed like a daunting task. I was pleasantly surprised when I found Sarah! From the moment we began to correspond about what I envisioned for my day, she understood what I wanted and delivered! She was very professional sending confirmation emails and was prompt in arriving to both the makeup trial and on my big day! After my makeup trial, I became excited for my wedding and knew I had made the right choice in hiring Sarah. She made me feel beautiful! If there is one thing I regret is not hiring her for my shower!! I recommend Sarah for any occasion. You won't be disappointed!

I am an independent wedding planner for clients based in the tristate area. I started using Dani Makeup as my go-to make up artist for weddings and formal events. Daniela has an exceptional work ethic. She is very flexible on scheduling and catering to my clients' needs. She has an exceptional eye for makeup tailored specifically for the clients. With over 15 years of experience, she brings many different techniques and different looks that will cater to any style or look. She brings a unique and fun charm during the sessions that puts clients at ease and makes the most of the entire experience from start to finish. Her rates are competitive but reasonable for the talent and ambiance she brings to my clients. I would highly recommend using her services for any formal event.

I truly had an awesome experience with my makeup artist. She was on time, friendly and patient with me even though I was under a lot of stress for my wedding. When I didn't know the style of makeup I wanted, she told me to relax and that I was going to be a beautiful bride. I trusted her and believe me, she did an awesome job. The details of the makeup was immaculate. My makeup stayed perfect all day and had no worries. She made me look and feel so gorgeous as well as my bridesmaids and maid of honor on my special day. For that I am truly grateful that I chose her as my makeup artist. She is extremely talented and I highly recommend her.

Danielle has done my makeup for numerous occasions from my high school prom to being a bridesmaid at all of my friends' weddings. Not only is she an amazing makeup artist, she is very kind and makes sure that you love every aspect of your look. I love asking her to explain how she does every step and trust her to do an amazing job each time. I usually don't even come with a plan because she knows what would look best on me better than I even would! Thanks Danielle, will definitely keep coming back!!

Kat was amazing! She asked two questions do you want soft make up or dramatic and then she was off doing her thing. She did the bride and my makeup and both were beautifully done. I was especially impressed with her tools she is extremely professional and patient. She travels with own lighting as well as professional camera for her portfolio (I have seen some makeup artists just use cell phones) this may not be a big thing but it let me know she is very serious about what she does. I normally visit the MAC counter for special occasions but I will be calling Kat again for all future engagements. If I could give her 6 stars I would. Definitely give Kat a try you will not regret it.

Pent is an amazing artist! She was very punctual and professional. She made sure my mother and I were comfortable during our trial. For someone who does not wear makeup everyday, her makeup was not heavy on the face or caked on. It looked very natural. She encouraged us to give our thoughts on if the makeup she was creating on our faces were going in the direction of what we wanted. I recommend grabbing her as a makeup artist for any event or occasion you need to get glam for.

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.
