Mary-Ashanti was amazing to work with, she did hair and makeup for my father's wedding and we were so happy with her work! She made everyone feel beautiful, she was great to work with and we would definitely hire her again. We only had a couple days to coordinate with Mary, but she was super flexible, very communicative via text and Thumbtack, and made the process go as smooth as possible. She also has a great personality in person and all of my family said how much they loved working with her for the wedding day - she made everyone laugh and put the bride at ease. Thank you so much to Mary - you such a pleasure to hire and work with, we look forward to hiring you again in the future!

Mallory was amazing!!!! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for hair and makeup. The look she helped me create was elegant and classy with just a hint of glam, which was exactly what I was going for. She applied makeup without caking it on so that it really just brought my natural facial structure.

Ochanya is absolutely amazing! She provided hair and makeup for a styled wedding and the end result was stunningly beautiful. I sent Ochanya a couple “inspiration” photos, and she completely brought the look to life on the model. She is so talented with makeup application, and I simply can’t say enough about her skills. Highly recommend for any bride, and I can’t wait to work with her again.

I know what you're thinking, oh ye person seeking a beauty guru to tell you which vendor to hire. What makes Glass Slipper the right team, you ask? Okay, then cue Donna Summer’s “I feel Love” and read on… I hired Glass Slipper to transform six bridesmaids and myself into 1920's style women. The hairdos were all different…beautified with serious Flapper finger waves, loads of curls, impeccable Downton Abbey chignons and let’s not forget those bead and feather headbands. Our bridesmaids spanned the globe – half were from Germany and the other from Japan and the U.S. Glass Slipper showed up crazy early on a Sunday morning. They were not only awake, ready, smiling and "in the zone" for hair, but I think I can be a touch arrogant in their favor by saying that they sculpted our heads into some of their best hair art to date. They honored our input and arrived organized with all of the Pinterest sample photos we had provided to them in a spiral-bound Look Book with their own style notes. In other words, they do their homework. They were all about professionalism, good laughs and fast working hands. They finished ahead of schedule because they were mindful of the time without making me or anyone else feel the ticking. And, they work well as a team – no underlying tension or side conversations. They even stayed to help us pin our headpieces. I found this particularly above and beyond since that required them to wait well over 30-minutes for several bridesmaids to finish their makeup applications. Seeing Aleetha, Jessica and Alegra in action, you are aware that they are giving you your hairdo, not their hairdo and you'll never be able to put a price tag on feeling confident because you look yourself (just way, way, better when the sparkly you shines through). What you can do is your damndest to hire the right people to get you 99.9% there. This IS that team and if you don't trust them from the beginning, you'll never trust them and that's your problem. They appreciate beauty and they strive to keep learning about their craft which shows. My recommendation is hire them while you still can.

I was looking for someone to come to my house to do hair and makeup for my wedding on September 22,2018 for me and 6 bridesmaids. All of us are on a tight. I had a Gatsby themed wedding so we were looking for a specific look. I had a trial with several others and you'd up looking like a clown. That's when I came across Marija and Ivana. They put me at ease. Calmed me. Their prices were in my price point. They are extremely personable and professional. They were on time. Extremely friendly. Everyone loced these 2 girls and the magic they created. We all got rave reviews on our hair and makeup at the reception. They literally made us into flappers. I would definitely use them again. In fact I won't use anyone else for my hair and makeup

Mahira did makeup for me, my mom, and my mother-in-law for my wedding. She came to my home in the Bronx for a trial (just me) and then day-of. Her work was perfect on its own, but more importantly, she was open to our thoughts, always asking how we felt, what we liked, etc. Mahira is not only talented, but a great person. I loved chatting with her during the trial and wedding, and her prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend using Mahira for all of your makeup needs. You won’t be disappointed.

Sandra was very professional from the time I booked my appointment until she actually did my makeup. She confirmed my appointment the day before and arrived on time. My make-up was flawless! After asking me a few questions on my preferences she was able to create a beautiful look that was just right for me. Thoughout my make-up session, Sandra explained what products she was applying to my face. Everyone at my son's wedding was amazed at my make-up. I would recommend Sandra to anyone that wants a truly professional experience and a fabulous outcome. Looking forward to working with Sandra again. I felt that Sandra was very reasonable in price compared to other make-up artists I reached out to.

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.

The work Shirley does is very good, I love it because it gives you to choose from many styles and also suggests which one would fit better according to your face, skin color and facial features, use excellent products from good brands and different designers to a better quality of makeup ... she has me makeup for photo sessions and of course for her good work I asked her to make-up and comb for my wedding, I love it because it is very delicate to comb and it is careful, it also makes you a preview a few weeks earlier to know how you're going to want your hairstyle and make-up on the day of the wedding, etc ... also their prices are pretty good or reasonable, you will not regret your good work.

Dorothy was great!! I hired her to do hair and makeup for my wedding. During our makeup and hair trial, she was attentive, listening to what I wanted while giving me great advice (I don’t wear makeup period). I shared my opinions and feedback leading up to the day of (email and texts), and she nailed it! My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted and PERFECT on my wedding day. She even traveled with me to the venue so she could pin my veil and floral hair comb into my hair and add finishing touches before First Look. Thank you so much, Dorothy!!

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.
