Amazing!!! We had a little misunderstanding about the time, but that didn't even matter! Vesta got both of us out on time and even put "make-up" on my two nieces and made them feel so special. Thank you so much for making all of us feel special! Xoxox

GemFaceNY earns every star and then some! Michelle is an absolute talent and the BEST I have ever seen in the business. We had her for my daughter's first communion party and it was a delight to see how each child's face was a canvas for her artwork. Absolutely beautiful work! I highly recommend GemFaceNY for your future party's. Thank you so much Michelle for being a part of our special day.

Kurt is versatile and talented, with excellent color sense, so he can offer suggestions about what works well in your space. In both my apartment and country house he has skim coated, painted and created polished faux finishes. He is also fastidious about preparation and clean up. He is a skilled craftsman.

I hired Mallory Cosmetics for a JC based movie shoot. We were on a very tight schedule and budget and working on logistics at the last minute. Mallory was an AMAZING addition to the set. She did a fantastic job with our teen and adult actors - applying just the right look we wanted for the shoot, and adjusting it as needed. She was able to create unique looks for each day which was a unique way to approach the character development that we hadn't even considered. She intuitively knew what to do for each of our characters. Mallory certainly didn't have to, but she even pitched in on the set and contributed in ways which were so helpful - she was just terrific. She was on time, extremely professional, and a lovely, enthusiastic person that we were very happy to work together with. Definitely using her on future assignments when we're in the area! Thank you Mallory!

Sharon is an amazing makeup artist. She did my makeup for my undergraduate and graduate graduations and it was fantastic both times. She does an amazing job of giving you a naturally beautiful look as opposed to an overdone look. I have had makeup done by MAC artists twice and Sharon does a better job by far. The photo speaks for itself. I will not hesitate to reach out to Sharon again the next time I need to have my makeup done for a special occasion.

Working with Cash was absolutely amazing. She was always on time and she did exactly what I asked for and gave great recommendations as well. Could not have asked for a better MUA. She really made my day very special and I looked like a queen all day. I loved the fact that her products were of great quality and how clean she was. Her videographer was great too they were an amazing pair to work with and will definitely be hiring her in the future.

Mahira is the absolute best!! From day one, she was incredibly accommodating and perfectly captured the look I was going for. She is so talented and loves what she does - it truly shows through her work. I could not be happier that I chose the BeautyCall Glam team for my special day, and I can’t wait for the next event I go to so I have an excuse to call Mahira and have my makeup done!

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.
