Vesta did my trial makeup for my wedding and she was absolutely phenomenal. I felt beautiful! She was professional and finished within a timely matter. I was referred to her by several others who had used Vesta for their wedding day and they had nothing to say but great things. I can not wait to have her there on my special day and for her to make my bridal party and I feel extra special and beautiful!

There are not enough stars to explain how absolutely fantastic the entire team is! My biggest concern going into booking a hair and make up artist has been finding a team that I felt could take on the many skin tones, hair textures, and number of people in my bridal party. M.A.D.EUP was a God send. From the initial phone conversations, to email follow up, I felt completely comfortable with not only Mary and Dj's capabilities. I also felt for the first time that a make up vendor was listening to my concerns, but actually came up with ideas to match my style and comfort level. Not only did I feel confident and sexy in my bridal make up, but two of my other bridesmaids who got their trials done looked FLAWLESS. Mary and her team talk the talk and walk the walk. Everyone was so pleased with their trial looks (as well as the professionalism and vibe of the team), that two of my bridesmaids who are also engaged are planning on booking Mary and her M.A.D.EUP team for their upcoming weddings as well. This is the most at ease I have felt with a vendor thus far, and I will absolutely be referring them to EVERY engaged friend I have!

Tatiana has been great with her job and punctuality on the day of the wedding day. I did a trial with her before the actual wedding and she listened to my needs carefully. The hair and make-up on the actual day hasn't been anything else but what I want. She is very easy-going and a good communicator who gives valuable professional opinions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a bridal make-up and hairstyle do.

Mallory did my make for my wedding at the Hyatt Regency and she was amazing. My photographers even loved Mallory’s professionalism, her very organized and clean work station. Mallory went above and beyond my expectations stuck to our timeline of events on my wedding day. She did my makeup exactly the way I described and everyone who had their make up done was very very pleased!

She was a life saver! 4 days before my wedding I had to find another makeup artist. She was very professional and asked a lot of key questions before we even agreed to a contact. Wasn’t able to do a trial and was very happy with my results, as I now had to trust that she would come through for me on my day. I absolutely loved it! Thanks you so much again!

Remi was truly amazing the day of my wedding. She arrived at the venue even before me and was eager to get started. In total she did the brides hair and make up as well a sister both mothers hair and make up in just 3 hours. Professional and listens to your preferences but not afraid to make recommendations I wouldn't hesitate to use Remi again.

I got my hair done with the rest of a bridal party this July. I showed her my Pinterest board to give her an idea of the styles I liked and she nailed it! Even happier that it stayed in all day and night. All the girls looked great.

Extremely talented make up artist with incredible attention to detail! My make up for the wedding I attended was stunning and the exact look I wanted for the occasion thanks to her creativity and skills! The makeup also lasted for the entire night, including through the typical wedding ceremony tears. Highly recommend BeautyCall Glam!

Dianelle did such a beautiful job on my hair and make up for my wedding. She is so sweet and truly was a pleasure to work with. I even bawled my eyes out the entire time and my make up didn't budge. She was even willing to drive to my parents house an hour away on short notice. She is very accommodating and her prices were reasonable. I would definitely hire her again.

The work Shirley does is very good, I love it because it gives you to choose from many styles and also suggests which one would fit better according to your face, skin color and facial features, use excellent products from good brands and different designers to a better quality of makeup ... she has me makeup for photo sessions and of course for her good work I asked her to make-up and comb for my wedding, I love it because it is very delicate to comb and it is careful, it also makes you a preview a few weeks earlier to know how you're going to want your hairstyle and make-up on the day of the wedding, etc ... also their prices are pretty good or reasonable, you will not regret your good work.

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.
