Tanvi came to my house to apply my makeup for my son’s recent wedding. She was punctual, prepared, friendly, and very professional. As a “woman of a certain age” I was concerned that my look be age appropriate and natural. Tanvi was very attuned to my desired outcome and worked to make sure I was totally comfortable and satisfied. I loved how I looked and received many compliments at the wedding. Tanvi is a very talented artist and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to look their best for a special occasion.

If you want to look beautiful on your wedding day, Tonya is the makeup artist you should call. Not only did she make me feel and look like a star, she did wonders for the groom who had gotten a bruise on his face. Great personality, made us feel at ease and would recommend her 10 times over! Thank you Tonya for making our day special!!!!!! You are the BEST!

I came to Christina because I needed help being the best dressed and most scary for a Halloween costume party. She was very accommodating, efficient, and friendly. My zombie make up looked perfect and stayed that way all night. I would recommend her to anyone for any sort of make up styling!

Erin did my make up for a private photo shoot. She was amazing. She listened to what I wanted. Told me step by step so I could try at home. She is also a great sales rep. Not pushy, only supportive. I highly highly recommend Erin.

My friend and I looked amazing for prom. I was taken back by her makeup collection, definitely had every shade and product we needed. The only thing was it took longer than expected, so I was rushing out the door, but that just means she takes her time. If I ever need a makeup artist again, Natasha Harris is who I am coming to.

She's extremely professional and extremely talented at what she does. I could not hope for a better makeup artist. Her work photographs incredibly well (as a photographer, this is UBER important to me!) she is patient and considerate with the clients and is really sweet and kind to converse with--and so knowledgeable! I love working with her and I will keep doing so for as long as she lets me hire her!

Tani is an amazing make up artist whose most wonderful talent is highlighting what makes you most beautiful. She made me look beautiful on my wedding day, but I still looked like myself. She used Traditional make up method, and I looked as beautiful at 10 PM as I did at noon. She made me comfortable and helped me relax and even explained the product she was using so that I could attempt to replicate the look sometime in the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.
