Vesta is AMAZING! On my wedding day, she was on time, was very professional and did an excellent job with my makeup. My makeup, as well as my sister and mom's looked gorgeous and perfect throughout the day! I'd work with Vesta again in a second!

Tatiana and her partner, Liz, did hair and makeup for seven of us on my wedding day. They both did an outstanding job - the makeup was stunning but still looked natural. We had a very diverse group... ages ranged from 26-58 as well as all different skin tones and hair types, and everyone looked flawless. The hair styles were all different, based on whatever my bridesmaids wanted, and everybody was so thrilled with the results. I have combination skin that also gets really problematic in the winter time. I was also looking for someone who had a fair number of Asian clients, since not everyone is experienced working with our eye shape. Tatiana was able to make my skin look perfect, and best of all, the makeup lasted all day. The lashes made my eyes pop but were not over the top, and they were comfortable and lasted all day. I don't know how she did it but my hair held up the entire time as well. She very thoughtfully packed us a small emergency kit with bobby pins and makeup sponges in case of tears or unexpected crises. Another bonus is she is extremely reasonably priced, especially for the NYC area. Lashes and airbrush foundation are standard, whereas most others charge extra for these services. Her prices are standard per person per service, and she doesn't upcharge for the bride just because. She puts 110% into each person regardless! Throughout the entire process she was super responsive and flexible. She also showed up right on time and was very efficient - we even ended up running a little bit ahead of schedule. I had such a positive experience with Tatiana (and Liz!) and I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for makeup/hair services.

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.

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.

After my first makeup artist backed out of doing my makeup (about a month before my wedding), I was in a bit of a crunch to find a new one. I found Sarah on Thumbtack and she was awesome since day one! Very quick to respond, easy to work with and totally understood what I was going for. She was able to squeeze me in for a quick trial and I loved my makeup that I booked her right then and there. On my wedding day, she showed up on time, was professional and finished mine + 3 of my bridesmaids' makeup right on schedule - and everyone looked beautiful!! I highly recommend Sarah Jeanne's makeup services to anyone!

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.

I needed someone to do my hair and makeup for a 10:30am wedding. She came on the dot 6:45 am. She had everything she needed for the task. I never needed to retouch anything. 11pm passed and the makeup never smudged.it looks as beautiful as the time she finished doing my makeup. Perfect for my wedding. Everybody kept asking me who did my makeup. Everybody compmimented how beautiful I looked on my special day. She doesnt do just simple weddinf makeup. She does function too. I already sweat a lot ywt my makeup stayed the same. You wont regret hiring her.

Vicky P. is one of the most professional makeup artist and absolutely nailed the exact look that I wanted when she made me up for my baby shower. The transformation was impeccable and all I ever wanted. She truly made me look and feel like a goddess. If ever I need my makeup done she is my ‘go to’ make up artist. She is just that great!

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.

Sheryl was absolutely amazing !! Her pictures don’t say enough!! She made me look amazing without applying so much makeup as I was going for a more dewy glowy and natural makeup. She arrived at my house 10 minutes earlier so she can set up which I loved so she started right on time for me. Also she brought her own ring light which I absolutely appreciated being that I don’t have the best lighting at home. Super professional and VERY clean kit.

All of the above. I'm not a woman who wears makeup and was totally against wearing makeup for my wedding, thank God my niece knew Renelle. Not only was she reasonably priced but, she was willing to do a trial on me. Renelle made me look like a princess on my wedding day and if and when I decide to wear makeup again, Renelle is the ONLY PERSON I would contact Thank you so much

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.
