I hired Vesta to come do my hair/makeup for my wedding. Her work was flawless, she is so easy to work with and can adapt your ideas to work with your hair texture/length. We had a great morning together, and my hair/make up held well throughout the evening.

Tatiana did a great job with hair and makeup for my wedding. I didn't have a wedding party so I only needed services for myself and my mom. Tatiana offered skilled services for a great price. My mom and I were both very pleased with the trial and final look.

Sharon has done make-up parties for me in the past and I've always been a fan. However, I had a black-tie gala to attend and thought I would try her services for my make up. What a difference she made in my appearance. She did an amazing job. Throughout the night everyone complimented me on how wonderful and amazing my make up was.it was better than the makeup for my wedding!!!! Hands-down she is awesome. She takes time I work with your akin and she gave me lashes!!!! I will use her again and again. Did I mention she does house visits?! Awesome!

Mallory did my make for my wedding at the Hyatt Regency and she was amazing. My photographers even loved Mallory’s professionalism, her very organized and clean work station. Mallory went above and beyond my expectations stuck to our timeline of events on my wedding day. She did my makeup exactly the way I described and everyone who had their make up done was very very pleased!

I hired Remi to do my makeup for a wedding I was a part of. She did a phenomenal job! Remi arrived on time for my appointment to go over details for my look, which I appreciated. My face was very elegantly done and had the perfect natural look I was going for. Remi was very personable and made sure I was happy with the results. I definitely will be using her for all my events. I recommend her to all!

Sarah Munoz of Sarah Jeanne Makeup Artistry was my makeup artist for my wedding last month and she was fantastic!! In six hours Sarah did makeup for 8 people. She did a beautiful job! We got ready at my parents house and Sarah had no problem going there for my trial or for the wedding day. She arrived early to set up and in all the hours she was there I'm not sure I saw her sit down once. Sarah is extremely professional. During my trial we talked about what I wanted and she talked me through everything she was doing. She is a friendly and delightful person. At the trial while she was serious about her work, but she took time to get to know me and joke around a little. On my wedding day, again extremely friendly, but very serious about her business. She had a deadline and met it without breaking a sweat. Many people complimented the bridal party's makeup throughout the day and even at night when it was all over someone made a comment to me that my makeup still looked great after so many hours. I would highly recommend Sarah for any occasion.

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.

Katya did a fantastic job on my makeup for a wedding I was in. She spoke with me before the wedding to get an idea of what I wanted. She spent time reviewing the information I shared and used it to plan a personalized makeup design just for me. On the day of the wedding she traveled to my home and spent two hours making me look beautiful! She shared her thoughts first to get my approval and then she got to work. Katya was very thorough in her work and explained what she was doing every step of the way. She continuously checked in with me to make sure I was good and to make sure she was doing what I wanted. She was committed to making sure I was 100% satisfied! I was so pleased with the end result and I got tons of compliments at the wedding about how gorgeous my makeup looked. I couldn't believe how long the makeup lasted! Katya applied my makeup at 6:45 in the morning and the wedding wasn't until 4:30pm with a reception that went to midnight! The picture below of me and my son was taken at about 7:00 pm...and my makeup still looked great!! Thank you, Katya, for a wonderful experience!

So glad I found Danielle to do my wedding hair. Communications were easy and she was very nice to talk to. She charged a very reasonable price and did an amazing job. I received compliments on my hair from wedding guests. More importantly, she was very helpful on my day. It was very chaotic with many girls getting ready and heading out of the door. She kept reminding us on the important stuff, even though it was not her job and could have left as soon as my hair is done. She was warm and genuinely enjoyed her job. I highly 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

Danielle did an amazing job for me on my wedding day! She did makeup for 4 of us ladies and I could not have been happier. Danielle was on time, professional and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process. Everyone loved their looks and Danielle worked with us throughout the whole process to make sure we were each happy with our makeup. Danielle was patient and calm throughout the whole process despite all the chaos/excitement that happens on wedding day. She also helped me choose a look that I absolutely loved. Everyone loved how flexible Danielle was throughout the day despite some last minute changes. I'm usually very picky about my makeup and I honestly wouldn't have changed a thing, I would definitely recommend Danielle and use her services again for any special occasions/makeup needs!

Kat was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, and extremely personable. She was one of the first makeup artists that I truly listened to me and executed my desired look down to a T. She spent an entire hour doing my makeup and making sure that it was perfect, and all for a great price. I highly recommend Kat, and I will be using her for all my upcoming events and makeup needs.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
