Vesta is amazing. My makeup artist cancelled a couple days before the wedding and I'm so happy Vesta was available. She really listens to what you want and doesn't cake on product like many other makeup artists, and it will last all night. I also had her do my hair and it was perfect and secure all night. I bought the wrong kind of extensions and instead of letting them go to waste vesta was able to use them to give my hair more body. I cannot say enough great things about her. Book her!

This is the first time I have ever had a make up artist do my make up, and I really enjoyed the experience. She was very professional and punctual. I loved my makeup. My makeup lasted all day. She even gave me some tips/advice about how to do my hair since it was raining. (Hired for makeup only). Thank you, Tatiana.

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.

Sarah's work is exceptional and flawless, which were the commentaries that resulted from my look at my brother's wedding. She is professional,timely and organized. Sarah has been doing my hair (weaves: sew-in and wigs, braids) and makeup for the past 3 years in regards to all major events in my life. I have recommended colleagues, family members,and friends to her just by the look of her final masterpiece, which speaks for itself. She is a wonderful and talented makeup artists, who is also personable, accommodating, and pleasant to be around.

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!

We had a very stressful situation where I found myself with no makeup artist 24 hours before a very important event for the company I manage. I can not be happier with Remi, she was on top of her game, on time and she rocked it like a boss. Definitely will hire her again for upcoming jobs and I highly recommend her services.

Devon came to my house this past weekend to do my makeup trial. First, he is extremely pleasant, congenial and easy to work with. I told him that I don't wear a lot of makeup and that I wanted a soft, natural look. He listened and went to work. The results are in the attached pictures. Devon is a perfectionist which I really like, and from his years of experience, he knew exactly what to accentuate, what to cover, etc. Devon was my 3rd trial on Thumbtack. The other 2 makeup artists were ok but could not capture the look I wanted like Devon did. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Devon! You will be thrilled with the results!!!! I know I am!

Dany was amazing. I was super nervous about the quality of the makeup during 90 plus degree weather at my our door shower. At 1 am my makeup was still flawless and had many compliments during my party. I will be using her services in the future :)

It was very nice working with her. I never try red lip before and she found a color that I was comfortable with. Usually makeup artists pick the wrong color for me that I don't like but Tiffany gave me lots of options and we tried lots of colors and she just knew what was right for me. She didn't convince me to wear something I didn't like she made sure that I loved it and I really really did! Now I'm not afraid to wear red lip or both lips anymore she help me find right color for me! She's the best! Thank you again Tiffany so much you really change the way I look at colors can't wait to work with you again!!!!

Cashmeir knew what she was doing. I had her do my makeup for my wedding. I asked for a soft look and she delivered it to me. I first thought I had too much make up on, but it turned out to be perfect especially for photo taking. My pictures came out so good. Me and my husband were very happy. I would recommend Cashmeir to anyone who wants a quality makeup artist.

Couldn't have picked a better makeup artist for my wedding than Jomora, she is amazing!!! So sweet & funny - I knew immediately after my trial that I wanted her for my big day. If you're looking for someone to contour your entire face and make you look like a different person this is not the vendor for you. I told Jomora I wanted nude lips, smokey eyes and lots of lashes- she nailed it! I still looked like myself and the makeup lasted from 10am until after mid night. She did makeup & lashes for the bride, mother of bride, & 7 bridesmaids in 3 hours! She is the best!!!!

Susan responded to my request for a makeup artist after the person who was supposed to do my makeup for my son's wedding cancelled 3 days before the date. We spoke on the phone, and I told her I wanted to look natural, not "made up". She knew exactly what i meant. Susan arrived early for our appt..and was thorough in explaining how she was going to apply the makeup. She asked me questions to make sure that she understood the look that I was expecting her to achieve. She is very easy to work with, very friendly, yet professional. She was concerned that I was happy with the eye makeup, had me check it, and adjusted anything that I wanted as we went along. I was concerned that my makeup would last for this entire "special" day, even if it wasn't airbrushed. Susan assured me it would, and she was right! My makeup looked fabulous. My husband and son said it looked a "thousand times better" than the trial makeup I had done with the other makeup artist. I got many compliments all day long. I was so pleased that Susan was the "artist" who did my makeup. I highly recommend her for her artistry, her professionalism and friendly personality.

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.

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.

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.
