Mary did my hair/makeup for my fitness competition (special event makeup). She was amazing! I am extremely picky, it usually takes 3 make up artists just do my brows! She really listened and made sure I was happy with my hair/makeup. She was very professional and made the whole day stress fee!! I plan on booking again for future competitions and photo shoots.

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.

On my wedding day, I gave Mallory quiet a task! Mallory was both my make-up artist and hair stylist for myself, my mom, and my seven bridesmaids. Leading up to my wedding Mallory responded to all of my messages quickly and professionally. She arrived at the wedding venue the day of the wedding on time and began hair and make-up right away. Given the task of doing nine peoples hair and make-up is not an easy job, but Mallory did an absolutely amazing job. She worked quickly and straight through, one girl after another, with no issues. Mallory is extremely talented and I am so glad I was able to have her on the day of my wedding. (THANK YOU)

Daurisa has never been less than outstanding when providing her services to my colleagues and me. She is just a sweet individual who takes pride in her work and is compassionate about her clients. She has applied my makeup for a company event and it lasted the evening of dancing and debauchery. Ok, maybe there was not any debauchery but, there was dancing and lots of it and my face remained the same. She even met me for lunch once and accompanied me to the M.A.C. store so that I could find a nice bold color lip color that complements my skin tone. I didn’t have to feel anxious about being in the store because she was with me and she was the same outside of my office as she was when she was doing my makeup. Her fees have always been reasonable, if not less than some other make-up artists I have seen and what she does is just that, its art. No job is too small, she did my face for a holiday party and she does entire bridal parties. I look forward to working with her again and the next time, I may even get the smoky eyes with eyelashes package that she spoke about. I make it a habit of not highly recommending anyone. I make exceptions when talent is being overlooked. I HIGHLY recommend Daurisa.

If I could leave more stars I would. My makeup artist couldn’t make it last minute and she was available. She showed up on time and was so sweet. She had very light hand and her work was amazing. I normally don’t wear any makeup and she made it so i didn’t have to much on that I would feel uncomfortable. She used very light and smooth products. Over all Great Work!! #happybride

Rondha was my hair & make up artist for the Ms. Full Figured USA 2015 Pageant. She is incredibly talented. She was extremely attentive to my needs as a client. Her choice of hair and makeup helped me win the title of Ms. Full Figured USA Plus 2015. I will always use her services when I need to look extra special to an event. Thank you Rondha! You are amazing!

Aysh make-up team went above and beyond my expectations of how I imagined to look the night of my wedding reception. I had a panic attack because my previous make-up artist cancelled on me last minute, but everything happens for a reason because I am so so so happy that I ended up with Aysh. She understood right away what I was looking for and she gave honest opinions of what she thought would look best on me. She is fast, patient, and overall a kind human to have around on a stressful day. I highly recommend her and her team for your wedding or any function!

I had hired Danielle for my event unfortunately she wasn't able to do my make up due to a terrible tragedy however she immediately offered one of her friends who's also a make up artist and she was amazing! Danielle is very professional she called me the morning of the scheduled appointment and afterwards to make sure I was satisfied with the work her friend did. Danielle is the best!

As a former painter, Pent has an artists exacting knowledge of color. This puts her work far above that of the normal makeup artist. In my case she was able to identify an almost undetectable orange cast to the base I was using and switch me to another product that made a visible difference. Her subtlety is her strength.

It's the biggest day of our life. Our wedding day. Muinat came in and by the way she came in on time as we discussed. She has turned everything around. Honestly I was not expecting anything like that. My wife just looks like one of the cover girls on TV. Everything matched perfectly with the dress, the jewelry just the way she ever dream of. I have enjoyed that day pretty much. Thank you Muinat. People couldn't recognize her at the wedding. The make up was magnificent. I would recommend Muinat every day and any day as make up artist. Love you Muinat. You made our day. Thank you.

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.
