The services of this extraordinary artist are overwhelmingly satisfying. I first received her service of makeup for my birthday party. Ever since I came across her skill and talent to bring my vision to past she became my go to makeup artist. I appreciate her willingness to jump in and rescue my makeup mess ups. Her skill and talent are matched with professionalism. Her timeliness and cleanliness are always to be noted. When I recommend her to various females I never fail to mention her down to earth personality. I have gotten make up tips and style ideas all while having laughs and a relaxing experience. Overall when you book with this wonderful artist prepare to be Wowed and Blown Away.

This is the first time I have ever had a make up artist do my make up, and I really enjoyed the experience. She was very professional and punctual. I loved my makeup. My makeup lasted all day. She even gave me some tips/advice about how to do my hair since it was raining. (Hired for makeup only). Thank you, Tatiana.

I was taking part in a video shoot for the nonprofit I work for and needed makeup for camera. I have no experience with makeup and Sharon put me at ease. Sharon came through to my hotel and took care of my makeup. She even sent me on my way with some powder and lip balm to apply on set. She was communicative, prompt and professional. If I ever needed a makeup artist again in NYC, I would definitely reach out.

After my other makeup and hair stylist had to cancel two weeks before my wedding, I was lucky enough to find that Mallory was available. We did a consult a week before and walked through what I was looking for. Not only was she able to do my hair and makeup, she did makeup and hair for 3 bridesmaids and my mother-in-law - who all wanted different styles and she was able to accommodate everyone. My makeup stayed in place through tears during the vows all the way to the end of the night. And my hair still has curls the next morning! She was professional and fun and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

I reached out to Clarissa to do my makeup for prom and she was amazing. She travelled to me and arrived on time. I was completely in love with my makeup. She worked quickly but carefully to make everything perfect. I wasn't sure what look I wanted to go for at first but she gave me her recommendation and it turned out to be amazing!! She was able to completely transform me for my prom and I would highly recommend her.

Having Cashmeir as your makeup artist is not just a service, it is an experience. Personable, creative, meticulous and a master she takes makeup artistry to a different level. She has the ability of accenting beauty without taking away from the natural beauty of her client. She made me feel and look like a queen. Truly an unforgettable experience.

Mahira is the absolute best!! From day one, she was incredibly accommodating and perfectly captured the look I was going for. She is so talented and loves what she does - it truly shows through her work. I could not be happier that I chose the BeautyCall Glam team for my special day, and I can’t wait for the next event I go to so I have an excuse to call Mahira and have my makeup done!

I had my first makeup lesson with Kat and it really exceeded my expectations. She is so professional and friendly. The set up was amazing, very organized and clean. She gives detailed instructions and takes her time to explain each step. I literally have zero knowledge in makeup and no experience at all and she has so much patience and nicely corrected me and would show me the right way to do it. My end result was flawless and I'm so happy with it. I already set up my next lesson with her and I can't wait to absorb as much as I can of her knowledge.

She was absolutely amazing. She arrived prompt and finished in a timely fashion. Extremely professional and personable. So gentle when applying my makeup. Her set up is absolutely phenomenal. She takes pride in her work and it shows. Her makeup is top tier as well as her brushes and equipment. All around wonderful experience. My makeup stayed in all day even through a very hot photo shoot they I did outdoors. My photo does not have a filter, just great lighting. I will definitely be using Jennifer again.

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.
