Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

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.

Suheli is a very friendly makeup artist and she listened to exactly what look I wanted from only a few photo's perfectly. She is a really gifted artist and a kind person to work with.

Beverly is an amazing makeup artist! I'm always skeptical of makeup artists because I feel like I envision a look and it turns into something else, but Beverly was very attentive and understood what I wanted and worked to recreate the look. Also during the makeup application she explained things as she went along and my makeup lasted (it was for a wedding) from the morning until night through the hot new York City summer weather. Definitely recommend Beverly! She's amazing. by by Beverly

I hired makeup masters for my wedding on 8/12/22 and was amazed by my makeup artist. Sahi took care of both myself and my maid of honor and made us look absolutely flawless. We were both enamored with our look and couldn't stop looking in the mirror. In all actuality, I was apprehensive about this session because I had hired another makeup artist 3 months ago (not through makeup masters) and although the look was good, my face felt cakey and as if I had 10lbs of makeup on. With Sahi, our makeup felt lite and ethereal. It was a wonderful experience.

Omg Tajila made me look like a goddess. I have horrible acne and some scars . after she did my makeup I was legitmally in utter shocked how clear my skin looked. From the eyeshadow to the makeup it was so beautiful . I will be hiring her for everything and anything in the future. I cannot believe how talented she is the best makeup artist I have ever hired. And trust me due to my acne and skin I've gotten my makeup done a lot for dates , weddings etc ..... I truly cannot believe how beautiful I look. Thank you Tajila you are a true artist and beyond talented, words wouldn't be able to describe how professional wonderful you were.

Tiffany is awesome! Best makeup artist I've ever ever booked for my special day. Very sweet and profesional, she used the colors that complimented my face and it stood on all day and night - I didn't even need a touch up. I highly recommend Tiffany if you ever need long lasting makeup done.

Kathryn is a professional who loves what she does. I was so stressed, since I’ve been working long hours lately, but she helped me relax, she even offered tea and played music that I really enjoyed. I loved my makeup, it lasted all night Everyone commented on how good my makeup looked and I felt great. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist.

I 100% recommend her! She was so professional and organized. I was nervous hiring a makeup artist especially for such an important day, prom. But she couldn’t have made it such an easy and amazing process. The makeup look came out better than what I envisioned. I got complaints the entire night. I would definitely hire her again!

I was helping my friend (the bride) get a makeup artist for her wedding for her and the bridal party and came across makeup masters. I was sure that we would be happy with their service but our experience was the complete opposite and we regret having worked with them for two main reasons (quality of work and customer service) which I will elaborate on below. 1. We had bridal makeup and two bridesmaid hair styles done. Both the bridal makeup and the bridesmaids hair styles were okay (nothing special and nothing that we couldn't have done on our own). The main reason why we wanted a professional is to get a service that we otherwise would not be able to do on our own. The owners of Makeup Masters work with different artists that are located in different places and so for anyone who wants to use their service, I would recommend asking about who your artist will be and also getting more information about the work the artist has done before (verified pictures, reviews etc...). The artist we got was nice but her work was not that great so I recommend getting as much info as you can about your artist. We had sent pictures of what we want our hair styles to look like and our finished styles looked nothing like what we desired not even close. 2. The customer service was horrible. I initially spoke with Brenda (the founder) who was nice and accommodating so first experience was good but I then spoke to Scott (CEO) and he was very rude and unprofessional. They changed the price of the hair styles 2 days before the wedding and Scott denied receiving pictures we sent a month ago (that Brenda confirmed and spoke to me about over the phone at the time). I would say have every discussion with them in writing. The worst part of it all was how rude Scott was when speaking with me. There is NEVER ANY EXCUSE OR REASON AT ALL to be disrespectful, rude and unprofessional to customers. They said they have the best customer service in the country but I would say this was one of the worst customer service experience I have ever had so potential future customers please beware.

My niece turned 16 and the makeup artist my sister booked wasn't able to keep the appointment. It was the day of the party and I came with a last minute request. My niece looked amazing. I am so grateful for her squeezing my niece in and the work was phenomenal. Please book her, you won't be disappointed. P.S. I don't have that many photos but will update the review when the photographer sends the photos because I really want people to see how beautiful her makeup was.

It was one of my best experiences hiring a makeup artist online because you always have the doubt because it is the first time that she treats you and more for an occasion such as your wedding it was very professional,on time and the products very original for sure when I’ve another special occasion I'm sure I will contact her again and recommend her to my friends and family.

I found Leylya online at the last minute in my search for a makeup artist . She responded promptly and provided her cost upfront . She arrived to my home on time and equipped to work. She was extremely pleasant and professional throughout the entire experience and explained what she was doing as she applied the makeup. I was worried using someone for the first time especially because my skin was sun burnt from vacation and multiple shades of brown from cheek to chin but she did a wonderful job blending and made me feel beautiful. I requested a natural look and that was definitely achieved. I would highly recommend her services. Thank you so much Leylya

Very professional. I enjoyed my experience with Jazz, she understood exactly how I wanted my look. This was my first time getting makeup done by an artist; I was kind of nervous because even tho I wanted a smokey eye, I wanted a natural look on my face. She understood exactly what I wanted. I loved my make up and I got so many compliments at my graduation that is crazy. Even after the event, people that didnt atten
