After researching the different makeup and hair professionals in Las Vegas that specialize in African-American women makeup and hair I decided to go with Pin Up &go. Leigh was just awesome from the beginning with all the questions about her hair and make up f(I was concerned about the foundation matching up not looking to light) to the final end. She did the most beautiful job on both hair and makeup. My husband told her that she needs to come to Atlanta to show the makeup artist how to do my makeup. I must admit she did the dang-gone thing. If you all are looking for a makeup and or hair artist ladies please call Leigh you will not be disappointed.I cannot put enough words into this review as to how beautiful her work is.Thanks again Leigh.

Chic style and fabulous makeup artist! MAC professional and she knows all the tricks and current techniques! She made our wedding makeup last all day and my father almost passed out because we looked like famous movie stars! Sara knows what's up with trends and feature enhancing. She was great with each of our personal styles and different looks from my heavy eyeliner to my Mothers natural look. Sara is talented and professional, she came to our hotel the event day and will come again for my wedding next year too! Thank you Sara!

Keanna was my makeup artists for my cousins wedding and I cannot speak more highly of her. I just hired her to do my engagement photoshoot and will hire her again for my wedding. I lover her attention to detail and how she contours my face. It's rare to find someone who cares as much about the finished product as she does and is always willing to take imput. I always look fabulous when I leave her chair!!!

My name is Amber. I live in Atlanta, Ga. I'm a model, so needless to say I know a good makeup job when I see one. Tiffani Black did me and my 2 bridesmaid's makeup for my wedding in Las Vegas 9/19/15. She did a great job and in a timely manner. She's very professional. My pictures came out perfect. We were very pleased with her work! And if I ever need a makeup artist in Vegas again, I'm definitely calling Tiffani.

I had Jaelli as my makeup artist for my wedding Saturday, April 14, 2018 she had along with her an assistant to help out for myself along with my bridal party. She did contact me that she was going to run late, but she still made it and reassured us that we'd be done ontime, and she even offered to have an assistant come to us if we needed any touchups or anything. She was really sweet along with her assistant I believe her name was Tyler. My girls enjoyed their work, and loved their looks and I'm not of a makeup person so I didn't know what kind of look to go with Jaelli already made me beautiful on my special day. Everyone loved my look and was complementing me all night how beautiful I was as well as my husband. My own daughter didn't recognize me she said my Mommy is so beautiful and it just made my tear and feel so special. Being a mommy to 2 little ones I have no time to make myself beautiful or anything so to get those kind of compliments Jaelli worked her magic. I loved working with her, and I'd recommend her to anyone looking into makeup artists.

My experience with Y.S.H beauty services were spectacular. She first did a consultation to see what makeup worked well with my skin tone and would be best for my wedding! Which with her doing a consult first made me believe right then and there that she was serious about her profession and was prepared to make my day special and run smoothly on her part. I was more than pleased with my makeup, especially the focus she put in the blending and she made me absolutely fall in love with my eyes! Her personality put the icing on the cake! She truly shines bright, and her talent shows just that! Would definitely hire her again for any event!

Wanted to hire a make up artist for my best friend's bachelorette party in Vegas and came across Kristy. Best decision ever for our girls night out!! Kristy's work was outstanding! Because of our other expenses in Vegas we wanted to treat ourselves and not break the bank and Kristy worked with our budget with no hassle I cannot say enough how easy she made it for us. Working with a big group we had to change up our original meeting time, number of girls in our group and each time Kristy was accommodating and had the best customer service I could ask for. She came to our hotel at the exact time she said she would be there and was sooo easy going. We had a great time just hanging out with her getting ready. Our end result for make up was amazing. Each and every one of us had a different look. We didnt know what glam look we wanted for a night out but she would just look at us and come up with our look and were soo soo happy. If you need a great makeup artist while you're in Vegas for a special event/night out who will do great work for a great rate and have fun while you're getting your make up done,....get Kristy. Hiring her again next time we are back!

    Ladonna is so conscientious about trying to please, she really cared and listened to what I wanted, then gave me solid advice about what we needed to do to reach those outcomes! I love how easy going and warm she is, and she is a one stop woman, nails, hair, makeup! I walked in feeling unsure and not really knowing what I wanted, and walked out feeling confident and chic! Thanks Ladonna! I highly recommend you!!

    I contacted Shawnice with Divine Treasures to get photos taken of my five year old for her birthday. Our first theme was a princess theme, we even rented a unicorn! Our second theme was a fairy theme. We met Shawnice at Floyd Lamb Park. She was already there; set up with a few different locations for pictures and some ideas and props to incorporate our 2 dress changes, my 5 yr old (who was super excited), and a live animal! Shawnice was super friendly and brought great positive energy! My daughter immediately took to Shawnice’s fun loving direction and laughed at all of the funny faces and noises Shawnice made to keep my daughter in good spirits and comfortable during the session. Shawnice’s creative eye brought my daughter’s five year old princess fairy theme pictures to life! She was professional, enthusiastic, friendly, incorporated my wants and opinions into the pictures, and captured special moments that will literally last forever!!!! I love that Shawnice was our photographer this time around we will be using her for all photo shoots! She made our experience a memorable and magical one!!! Thank you Divine Treasures!!!!

    She was the makeup artist for a photoshoot I was at with 4 other girls. She did a full face with lashes for 5 girls in about 3 hours. She was super nice to talk to and really knowledgeable about makeup. Her kit is awesome as well. I highly recommend for any special occasion!

    I hired the True Virtue Team to get Myself and 12 of my bridesmaids ready. 4 artist showed up 30 min before start time to set up. It was like an army of talent was there to make my day amazing. Every single one of us looked phenomenal at the end and the special attention Rebecca and Dee gave me, well if it weren't for them I would have become a Bridezilla that day with some hiccups that popped up. They gave me an appreciation bag to add to my experience and all the makeup they used on me was in there with some extra goodies. True Virtue team are all so attentive and truly masters of their craft. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for wedding or anything of the makeup sorts. Professional, friendly and just overall great people.

    Amber has been hired by me several times for both stage makeup as well as on special occasions. She is not only very good at detail but also at teaching you how to duplicate the look as well. I will definitely continue to use her as my artist.

    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.
