Look no further! Honestly i couldn't stop smiling when i saw the end result! Emma was very sweet, perfectly on time and very patient. She brought a wide variety of products from really nice makeup brands and all her brushes and products were very clean which was something i was initially worried about. Overall, a very good pick.

On my 75th. birthday Ellie did my makeup for my birthday party. No one could believe my age after Ellie's expertise putting on my makeup. It made me feel like I was 55 instead of 75. Ellie certainly out did herself and I recommend her highly.

Flawless memories did an amazing job on my hair and makeup along with all of my bridesmaids. Which is a tough job because we all have different hair types from tight spiral curls to a poker straight hair. Annie made all of makeup look beautiful and she even did a great job including our flower girl in the day. I highly recommend Flawless Memories to everyone.

    Chloe was fantastic. She has an instinct for this and is very diverse. I'm not a big make up wearer and some of my bridal party was and she managed to make everyone happy and beautiful!

      Caterina has been doing my make up and my hair for over 20 years and she is amazing. I have very curly hair and wouldn't trust my hair to no one else. I don't like wearing makeup so when I have to wera it for special occasions Caterina does a great job in making me look fresh and natural. Great hairdresser and make up artist.

      What makes my services stand out from other services is not only the quality of the work but the fact that every costumer walks away with exactly what they imagined if not better. I take consultations very serious and make sure nothing is done with out complete understanding from both sides. I also do not have a problem stating my professional opinion if I feel something you want is not possible with what we have to work with or if I feel like it would not properly suit you I will make you aware. With that being said if you still want what u had in mind i will do what is asked and not what i think should be done. I also am very versatile from working with different textures and skin tones, too a wide range of looks from natural, to avant-garde styles.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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 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.

      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.
