Varian was awesome! Not only did he install my new A/C but he even picked it up from Lowe's for me and brought it to my apartment. He came on short notice right when he said he would and finished the job in 10-15 minutes. I'm feeling much cooler already.

Amazing!!! We had a little misunderstanding about the time, but that didn't even matter! Vesta got both of us out on time and even put "make-up" on my two nieces and made them feel so special. Thank you so much for making all of us feel special! Xoxox

Kurt is versatile and talented, with excellent color sense, so he can offer suggestions about what works well in your space. In both my apartment and country house he has skim coated, painted and created polished faux finishes. He is also fastidious about preparation and clean up. He is a skilled craftsman.

Joolie did a great job with face painting and balloon making. The level of detail on the children who had their face painted was amazing and so was her balloon making. Many adults who attended the event even commented on what a great job she did. Joolie was punctual and professional; she had a line of kids from start to finish and she accommodated each and every one which put her beyond the time for which she was hired. I would highly recommend hiring her and look forward to hiring Joolie should we have events in the future.

I truly had an awesome experience with my makeup artist. She was on time, friendly and patient with me even though I was under a lot of stress for my wedding. When I didn't know the style of makeup I wanted, she told me to relax and that I was going to be a beautiful bride. I trusted her and believe me, she did an awesome job. The details of the makeup was immaculate. My makeup stayed perfect all day and had no worries. She made me look and feel so gorgeous as well as my bridesmaids and maid of honor on my special day. For that I am truly grateful that I chose her as my makeup artist. She is extremely talented and I highly recommend her.

First and foremost Cashmeir is a wonderful, sweet, and humble person. She was very patient and knowledgeable about the products she uses and understands different skin conditions. I have very dry and itchy skin. I'm allergic to eye shadows and Cashmeir knew exactly how to work with my face. She did a fantastic job for 2 days. I love her style, not cakey, not heavy, flawless, and clean. She made my big day even more special that I couldn't believe it myself. I recommend her to everyone, and I mean EVERYONE! I love her work so much!

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've worked with Stacey for a few years now, if we are talking about the same Stacey you know that her personality matches her talent ! Patience is so important in this field and that's what I think makes Stacey so special. She takes time to understand the final vision and won't stop until the client is happy :). Thank you for being part of so many big moments for me and my family. My lady still talks about how the makeup didn't move all night lol. As a man I may not understand the value of this, but to all you ladies reading this, it was a big deal for mine ! Best of luck moving forward !

Danielle did an amazing job for me on my wedding day! She did makeup for 4 of us ladies and I could not have been happier. Danielle was on time, professional and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process. Everyone loved their looks and Danielle worked with us throughout the whole process to make sure we were each happy with our makeup. Danielle was patient and calm throughout the whole process despite all the chaos/excitement that happens on wedding day. She also helped me choose a look that I absolutely loved. Everyone loved how flexible Danielle was throughout the day despite some last minute changes. I'm usually very picky about my makeup and I honestly wouldn't have changed a thing, I would definitely recommend Danielle and use her services again for any special occasions/makeup needs!

Kat was amazing! She asked two questions do you want soft make up or dramatic and then she was off doing her thing. She did the bride and my makeup and both were beautifully done. I was especially impressed with her tools she is extremely professional and patient. She travels with own lighting as well as professional camera for her portfolio (I have seen some makeup artists just use cell phones) this may not be a big thing but it let me know she is very serious about what she does. I normally visit the MAC counter for special occasions but I will be calling Kat again for all future engagements. If I could give her 6 stars I would. Definitely give Kat a try you will not regret it.

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.
