Tracy and her makeup artist Brandi were phenomenal! From the trial to the wedding day, they were perfect. They took all of our suggestions and visions and brought them to life. They are sweet and kind and very pleasant. It was nice having them come to us to our hotel when we got ready. They were very punctual for the trial run and most importantly the wedding day! They catered to all the needs of the girls having services done. They were not pushy or rude.your wedding day should be the most special day and Tracy and her team completed it! I would highly recommend them! Great pricing and service! 5 stars for sure!

    I had my makeup done by Kelsey for a wedding. I have used other makeup artists in the past and found myself whipeing it off because it was so much more makeup than I was used to wearing and I didn’t even look like myself. Kelsey did an awesome job as evidenced by the many complements I received during the wedding reception (and it looked natural)! I wish I could have her apply my makeup everyday!!!

    Pam was truly amazing makeup artist. I felt like a celebrity with her following me around for my wedding touching me up as I kept crying due to such an emotional day. She did a amazing job on me and my girls. I loved her and would highly recommended her for anything you may need makeup done for.

    Wow!! I just checked out the many incarnations of Darlando and I am blown away! Talk about the ability to transform. He is on it for real! Even before I checked out pics of his many incarnations, I saw Darlando's ability to be a chameleon with his looks and persona when I saw him in to completely different stage performances. Darlando appeared in my play "The Brownstone" (oops, did I not say I am a playwright? Well, I am). In it, he played a regular, blue-collar, neighborhood guy in the 1970s who loved to dance. He blew everyone away with his dance number in the play. I wasn't even jealous when the audience clamored for an encore of his dance performance at the end. I became a HUGE fan and I wanted to see Darlando wherever he was performing. I caught him in a performance of La Cage and, all I could say was, WHAT!!! He was gorgeous. The makeup was flawless and so glamorous; the long, flowing locks were on point and looked so natural; the Wonder Woman figure was outstanding and the sexy outfit was painted on. With those ultra-high heels, sexy strut (and whip!), he was an audience favorite. It was so hard to believe that he was the same person who played a regular guy in "The Brownstone." Besides his ability to do phenomenal hair and makeup. He knows how to put just the right outfit with the look to make the look work. Also, looks like he's a foodie, too! Who could ask for anything more? I could. I think I will have Darlando do my makeup just see something different. Sometimes you just want a change. Check out "The Darlando Experience." Sorry if I'm gushing but I love his looks! Laura,

      Liz is fantastic. I was so excited to share my stylist with my sister-in-law for her wedding. Liz arrived ready work, early, even though she was traveling a distance to see us. She had four girls with all different hair lengths and types to work with and who all wanted very different styles. We shared pictures and Liz was confident with her ability to make it happen for each of us - and she delivered. We had an additional challenge - the mother of the bride decided last minute to have her hair done also, and she's always very fussy about her hair so she was a challenge. Liz found out about mom and how she normally wore her hair to make sure that mom would feel comfortable. All around Liz did an amazing job and everyone looked great. I can't thank Liz enough for the amazing work she did.

      Gaby is extremely knowledgeable, talented and friendly. She takes her time making sure colors are right for you, and explains what she is doing and why as she takes you through cleansing your skin to the final brush of blush to your cheeks! Gaby totally changed how I prepare my skin and apply my makeup. She is a true 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.
