Sarah's work is exceptional and flawless, which were the commentaries that resulted from my look at my brother's wedding. She is professional,timely and organized. Sarah has been doing my hair (weaves: sew-in and wigs, braids) and makeup for the past 3 years in regards to all major events in my life. I have recommended colleagues, family members,and friends to her just by the look of her final masterpiece, which speaks for itself. She is a wonderful and talented makeup artists, who is also personable, accommodating, and pleasant to be around.

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.

Sharon and her crew did an amazing job with myself and my bridal party. Although the timing of the day was affected due to the amount of time spent on each person, they took their time on each person and everyone came out beautiful and flawless. Each of my bridesmaids had completely different skin tones and looks and the makeup artists were able make everyone look fabulous. After working with artists in the past, I appreciated how much time Sharon spent with me during my trial to get my look perfect. She is very patient and truly a perfectionist. She does an amazing job and her prices are very reasonable. I would definitely hire her again.

Mallory is the best. I've had my makeup done a number of times by makeup artists, some good and some bad, but none ever this awesome. I mean it, the whole experience from start to finish was superb. Mallory really knew what she was doing and her prices are fair. She accommodated my changing schedule and never made me feel like I was a pain in the butt. She was on time and made my experience very relaxing. The next special event I have, she is the one I will be calling first. Thanks Mallory!

I will definitely recommend Antonina for both her talent and professionalism. I hope I have the pleasure of working with Antonina again!

Sarah was AMAZING! From my trial with her all the way through to my wedding day, Sarah was there to answer my questions and work with me to design the perfect look for me! We tried several looks and Sarah was able to put the trial together with our conversations about how I wanted my makeup to be and she gave me exactly what I imagined! In fact, EVERY member of my bridal party looked gorgeous and so did my mother and mother-in-law. Everyone had different skin and different ideas about what they wanted and Sarah just did it all FLAWLESSLY! More than that, she played a huge role in helping to keep me calm all day. Sarah stayed until I was fully ready to walk out the door attending to whatever I needed. She even crawled on her hands and knees under my dress to help me adjust my garter and strap me into my shoes. Sarah went above and beyond for me from the first time I met her and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did to make my day special. Not only is she an extremely talented makeup artist, but she is a truly genuine and caring person, as well. I cannot wait for my next event where I need to be dolled up because Sarah will certainly be my first call! Thank you, Sarah!!

Daniela’s makeup was stunning and me and my 2 friends all got compliments. She did a really good job on all three of us for our prom and the makeup stayed on all night. Daniela was on time and answered all of my questions beforehand, prom wouldn’t have been the same without her doing our makeup.

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.

I was given the name of these ladies as a referral from our makeup artist and oh man were they incredible!! They did the hair of 8 girls the morning of my wedding, and everyone looked soooo beautiful! - They were so personable and were so fun to hang out with the morning of the wedding. They did incredible work on our hair - and i was so worried my curls were going to go flat (as they usually do whenever my hair is done) and they held PERFECTLY well into the next day. My bridal party still talks about how wonderful they were, and even went as far as to helping my guys pin flowers to their jackets since they weren't sure how to. They were so much fun and everything looked so great! thank you sooo much for your help and love!! Trish & Ari Palomino

Mahira is a phenomenal makeup artist. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is seeking a professional for any occasion. She will take all the time needed to make you look perfect, I left out of her studio feeling the most confident I have ever been in my life. I felt like a walking Goddess. And because she uses high quality makeup... I was able to be a Goddess for the entire night; I even went to sleep and woke up without a smudge!!! I would definitely use her services again."

Kat was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, and extremely personable. She was one of the first makeup artists that I truly listened to me and executed my desired look down to a T. She spent an entire hour doing my makeup and making sure that it was perfect, and all for a great price. I highly recommend Kat, and I will be using her for all my upcoming events and makeup needs.

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.

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.

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.
