Well I have never had my Hair and makeup done by a professional, so I did not know what to expect. WOW....Not only did my daughter and I look more than amazing, Anne made it a lot of fun as well no problems working with my impatient teen who changes her mind every 2 sec. I very much recommend Anne if you need any hair or makeup done she is so worth every penny, I herd whispers all evening how nice I looked, I have been married over 25 yrs. and was hit on at the bar 3 times, my husband said I looked awesome, and could not stop just looking at me. I will call her again... My daughter was pleased as well,.that's saying a lot she just turned 18

I had a great experience having Ramsha as a makeup artist for a wedding party. She was prompt with scheduling and came to my designated location on the day of service. She listened to my ideas and made me feel very comfortable. She also included eyelash application free of charge! Overall, I would definitely hire her again and would recommend her to my family and friends. Thanks a lot :)

J'Hanna with Le Luxe came to my house and made everything extremely convenient. She did a great job and provided me with exactly what I wanted. Her service was very professional, and my makeup lasted all day. I would definitely recommend Le Luxe Beauty Concierge, and J'Hanna in particular.

Makeup by Rai

Laurie A.
Verified review

I needed help with hair and makeup on pretty short notice, and despite Rai's busy schedule (freelance makeup, retail job, nonprofit job AND pre-med at OSU), she was able to help me. She absolutely went above and beyond to give me a natural daytime look before morning interviews, then a dramatic evening look for onstage later in the day. She even agreed to do my hair (I begged), even though she is primarily a makeup artist. She did an amazing job! I hope I find myself in the Columbus area in need of a makeup artist - and maybe a hairstylist too. :) I posted pics of her amazing work on Instagram @laurie_tsilianidis. Rai is an extremely talented artist and a beautiful person.

I am new to Columbus and wanted my makeup done for New Years Eve...so i signed up on thumbtack for a makeup artist and Rahela called me within the hour! Although it was kinda far to drive from where I lived, it was well worth it! She did an outstanding job. I wanted something simple with a darker lip color and she did exactly that! It was perfect for my dress and hair and wasn't too much. I was a little nervous at first because i usually do my own makeup but the end result was gorgeous and she really listened to what I wanted and the look I was going for!! Thanks again Rahela!! :)

Ladies - if you are looking for someone to do your makeup for ANY occasion, LOOK NO FURTHER!!!! Alexis is the whole package. Not only was my makeup amazing, but I have never connected with someone so easily and quickly! My wedding day would not have been the same without her. She has such a warm and welcoming personality - she even helped my bridesmaids perfect my hair. It was like i had an extra bridesmaid :) And guys, let me tell you - when i woke up the day after my wedding, after a wild night of partying - MY MAKEUP WAS RIGHT WHERE SHE PUT IT!!! She made my dream a reality and made me feel like a princess with my beautiful makeup. I could not have made a better choice and I can't wait for the next time I need some makeup done, cus i already know who I'll be calling!! Love you Alexis!!!

I usually hate to get my makeup done, but Amna took those fears away. She was super sweet, super attentive, and listened well. It was a relief to find a makeup artist that not only listens, but adds her own flare to customize my look for my birthday party. I am a woman of color, so it was relaxing to know she had the correct foundation colors to match my skin tone. I got so many complements and I will be using Amna again!!

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.
