Vesta is an amazing makeup artists! She made me, my mother, sister and best friend look absolutely stunning for my wedding! Everyone complimented how good we looked all night long and in the photos. She really listens to what you want and knows how to accentuate your features and make you look flawless. She has a great attitude, is patient and has a great way of calming jittery bridal nerves while making you look gorgeous. I highly recommend her!

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!

Sarah was AMAZING! From my trial with her all the way through to my wedding day, Sarah was there to answer my questions and work with me to design the perfect look for me! We tried several looks and Sarah was able to put the trial together with our conversations about how I wanted my makeup to be and she gave me exactly what I imagined! In fact, EVERY member of my bridal party looked gorgeous and so did my mother and mother-in-law. Everyone had different skin and different ideas about what they wanted and Sarah just did it all FLAWLESSLY! More than that, she played a huge role in helping to keep me calm all day. Sarah stayed until I was fully ready to walk out the door attending to whatever I needed. She even crawled on her hands and knees under my dress to help me adjust my garter and strap me into my shoes. Sarah went above and beyond for me from the first time I met her and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did to make my day special. Not only is she an extremely talented makeup artist, but she is a truly genuine and caring person, as well. I cannot wait for my next event where I need to be dolled up because Sarah will certainly be my first call! Thank you, Sarah!!

Daniela’s makeup was stunning and me and my 2 friends all got compliments. She did a really good job on all three of us for our prom and the makeup stayed on all night. Daniela was on time and answered all of my questions beforehand, prom wouldn’t have been the same without her doing our makeup.

Briana did the makeup for myself, my bridal party, my mom & she even had time to do the makeup for my cousin that was not in the wedding. I absolutely love Briana from the 1st time I met her which was during the makeup trial. She wanted to know what I wanted, what I liked & what I didn't like. I even changed my mind on what I wanted after the trial & she had no problem adjusting to what I wanted done differently. The bridesmaids makeup was fabulous! No touch ups were need through out the night; that's how great the makeup was done. My makeup was also flawless. I loved it so much that I did not want to take it off at the end of the night. Overall, Briana is a great makeup artist. She's professional, she is an expert in her field & she is just a great person in general. I highly recommend Briana & will be contacting her again in the future.

I highly recommend using Stephanie for any occasion! She is very professional and very talented. Her prices are very reasonable compared to other makeup artists I researched. She is also very responsive and easy to communicate with. We communicated via text and she always responded in a timely manner, even if I reached out several times a week. After having my makeup trial with her, I immediately hired her for my wedding. A lot of stress comes with planning a wedding but makeup was something I never had to stress about. I had a few questions about different products and different makeup styles. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and gave me trustworthy advice. She really listened to all my wants/concerns and my makeup came out perfect! It is also very evident that she is passionate about what she does. My mom, my aunt, my four bridesmaids and I all had our makeup done by Stephanie for my wedding. Everyone has completely different tastes when it comes to makeup. I told Stephanie what guidelines I wanted her to follow for my bridesmaids. She was able to accommodate each bridesmaid’s style while sticking to my guidelines. Everyone was so happy with their makeup, my mom even cried when she saw herself in the mirror. (FYI - my mom’s makeup did NOT run when she cried!) Everyone’s makeup also stayed on the entire night, even after the wedding was long over. She was very punctional the morning of my wedding as well. She came early to set everything up so the setup time did not take away from the time she had to do anyone’s makeup. I don’t have anything bad to say and wouldn’t change a thing!

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!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have Emily as my makeup artist for a formal event!!! She came in cheerful and ready to get down to business making me look beautiful! I was skeptical at first, because I'm very picky about how my foundation looks, but she perfected everything. I could never have looked this amazing without her help, and she was a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you, Emily!

I hired Emily with Love n Glow to do the wedding makeup for my bridesmaids and I and I am so glad that I did! I had my makeup trial with Emily the morning of my bridal shower so she made me look beautiful for that event and I got endless compliments on my makeup. She even traveled to my apartment to do the trial which made that hectic day a little easier! I had an early morning wedding so we started doing hair and makeup at 5am and Emily was there ready to go when we needed her. Worrying about if and when vendors will get there on the day of the wedding is not something you want to deal with and even having met Emily only once before, I knew she was reliable and had total trust in her being there on time even with such an early call time. One of the big warnings I got with wedding makeup is that some makeup artists apply makeup so heavily that you don't look like yourself. Emily chose such beautiful shades for our makeup and had such a nice balance so that my bridesmaids and I looked AMAZING, especially in the photos, but so natural that you don't look and say, wow, they have a ton of makeup on. A lot of the girls in the party, myself included, don't wear a lot of makeup on an everyday basis and she was still able to pull off this professional look of natural beauty. My mom owns a beauty salon so I can be very picky when it comes to my hair and makeup, but I wouldn't have wanted anyone else doing my makeup on my wedding day. I am so happy I found Emily and hope I have an excuse to have her do my makeup again in the future. :)

Jessica from Belle Chic Beauty was wonderful to work with! I was in desperate need of a hair stylist & makeup artist for my & my fiancé’s engagement pictures, and because most salon aren’t open on Sunday I was struggling. Thankfully, Jessica curbed those troubling thoughts. She was extremely prompt & professional. I had pictures printed of my vision, & as she applied my makeup & styled my hair she asked question to ensure she was doing what I wanted. My pictures turned out wonderful thanks to Jessica’s attention to detail & skill set. Thank you Belle Chic Beauty!

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.
