These pictures do not belong to you. You’re stealing them! I’ve seen them on other makeup artists Instagram pages. You are going to charge 1k with lies!!! You never did Paris Hilton’s Makeup!!!

Wow, what can I say?? AMAZING!! We hired her to do my husbands Halloween makeup and he looked incredible!! She even left us with some of her products for touch ups. She squeezed us in between appointments when she heard that we were in a pinch. She is so sweet and kind. I will 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!

After being a bridesmaid several times over the past few years, I've worked with quite a few makeup artists-- when I got engaged last year, I contacted Sarah almost immediately because she stuck out as the best one by far! Sarah was extremely patient with me throughout the planning process (I was not always the most organized bride.) Sarah and her assistant Nicole did a FANTASTIC job doing my, my mom's, and my bridesmaids' makeup for my wedding. Not only did they finish a little ahead of schedule, everyone looked absolutely STUNNING. Both Nicole and Sarah did a great job making us all feel comfortable and making sure that we looked absolutely PERFECT. I would highly recommend Sarah Jeanne Makeup Artistry!!

Daurisa has been my makeup artist for a few events in NYC. The last time she worked with me was for a videoshoot. She's professional, knowledgeable about skin types and even worked with me on my Lupus-ridden skin issues. I've never worked with an artist who knew exactly what I needed and delivered FLAWLESSNESS every single time. I wish her all the best and I KNOW she will go far because she's not only EXCELLENT at what she does, she's also a very caring person and takes each client in as more of a family member than just a client.

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.

Having Cashmeir as your makeup artist is not just a service, it is an experience. Personable, creative, meticulous and a master she takes makeup artistry to a different level. She has the ability of accenting beauty without taking away from the natural beauty of her client. She made me feel and look like a queen. Truly an unforgettable experience.

I had reached out to Katya prior to hiring her to see if she had experience working on dark skinned clientele. She confirmed that she had, and sent me several examples of her work. I was so happy that I decided to go with Katya! She is a wonderful makeup artist who not only arrived at my home on time, but was fully prepared to execute the look I wanted. She made sure I was happy with my look every step of the way and offered to fix anything I was not satisfied with. I received so many compliments throughout the night and I felt amazing! Best part, my makeup lasted all night! I would definitely hire Katya again for another event, and hopefully my own wedding! Thanks again Katya!!

Melissa was amazing! I was having trouble finding a makeup artist for my wedding and found myself on Thumbtack. Melissa contacted me within minutes and after looking at her portfolio, I hired her right away. This might have been risky but it paid off! Melissa did a wonderful job on me, my mother and my sister the day of my wedding. She made us all feel so beautiful! My mother and I don't usually wear much makeup but Melissa was able to make us feel comfortable and beautiful and got it all right on the first try. Not only is she amazingly talented, she was also great company while getting ready. I highly recommend Melissa from MJ Artistry!

I had such amazing makeup for prom! I definatley recommend her and she made sure I was comfortable with everything. It took about 2 hours and everything was just on point. The price was such a good price and there was no flaw whatsoever in my makeup. She has such an amazing personality so I really recommend her.

Ashlee was the perfect makeup artist! I had been searching for a makeup artist for my wedding for a while. I even had two trials with a very talented makeup artist, but she could not keep the makeup light and natural enough while also making me look great :) I had a trial with Ashlee and fell in love! She understood exactly what I wanted and it turned out perfect. On my wedding day she also provided makeup for most of my bridesmaids and family. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and she is extremely talented and professional! Thanks, Ashlee! - Amber

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.

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.
