If you're looking for a prompt, professional makeup artist with a fantastic personality, look no more Sharon is your girl. I love her work. She gave my daughter the look she wanted for her High School prom. Her work was very clean with just the right amount of color and glamour to make my daughter shine. I highly recommend her for whatever occasion you have in mind to make your look and day special. I would definitely hire her again.

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!

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.

Jazzmene conducted a wedding consultation for me and unlike other makeup artists I’ve worked with, she actually listened to what I wanted and delivered! I don’t wear makeup too often so she was able to create a natural romantic look for my wedding that didn’t make me feel too overdone. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER! I ended up hiring her to come all the way to MD to do 12 faces for my wedding day. She created a schedule, was highly professional, and did an awesome job. Love her!

As a former painter, Pent has an artists exacting knowledge of color. This puts her work far above that of the normal makeup artist. In my case she was able to identify an almost undetectable orange cast to the base I was using and switch me to another product that made a visible difference. Her subtlety is her strength.

Sharon was the makeup artist for my daughter's wedding and entire bridal party (9 of us) on 5/6/17. She is an incredible professional makeup artist and a perfectionist. Everyone looked stunning! Sharon puts 150% of herself into her work. As the mother of the bride,I had a makeup trial with Sharon and she worked with me, to find the makeup colors amd products that looked best on me, with my skin, hair color amd gown. She took the time to answer every singe email and we exchanged quite a few, my doing.) She knew EXACTLY what I needed to look my best. No one in the wedding pasty looked overdone, but we all looked perfect in our pictures and up close. My daughter (the bride), looked absolutely stunning. Sharon knew just how much makeup she needed to look even more beautiful in photos, yet not fake or overdone, up close. So don't think twice about hiring Sharon. She is incredible at what she does, she's prompt, reliable, and can accomplish magic with makeup. You get more than your money's worth. By the way, she is fun and wonderful to have around on a wedding day. Hire her!!!

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 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.
