Mandy did the make up for my wedding and we all looked stunning. Even with a hot, outside wedding our make up stayed perfect all night and washes off smoothly. Love the air brush and lashes

Tanvi 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.

Brie did my makeup for my bridal shower and also the day of my wedding! She was amazing! Brie stayed completely professional through all of the requests between myself and my husband to be, my bridal parties last minute requests, and the stress and tears while she was doing my face the day of the wedding...!!! I would not and could not have asked for a better professional to be there! We all looked stunning thanks to her!

I had a bridal party of 6, myself included. Morgan was scheduled to meet me at my mother's home the day of the wedding (no trial makeup session, I'm broke xD) I am always shy about meeting new people so I was very pleased right from the start how easy Morgan was to conversate with. A MUA with a personality is a plus since you are going to be stuck with them for multiple hours. Once she finished applying make up to my bridesmaids it was my turn. Without a trial she was able to give me a GORGEOUS look on the first try. She was very knowledgeable and was able to recommend products based off our skin types. At the end of the day my bridal party looked flawless and I would definitely hire her again!

I enjoyed getting my makeup done by Megan. She made me feel very relaxed and at home, almost as though I had known her forever. She was very professional. She took her time to make sure that the makeup came out perfectly. I loved my look, I will absolutely go to her again and recommend her to anybody that needs their make up done, whether it's for a night on the town, a photo shoot, or formal event. She is my go-to person.

The first time Lauren did my make up was for a wedding I was in last July. I was so impressed with her work that she has been my go to makeup artist ever since. She has done my makeup for events, New Year's Eve and my birthday. She even did my mother's makeup for my parents anniversary photoshoot. That was my mother's first time getting her makeup done professionally and she was thrilled with how good she looked! Lauren is professional, kind, and really takes pride in what she does! I recommend everyone go to her!!!

Julia has provided me with three services: Facial, Brow Wax, and Make-up Application. I started to see Julia to improve my appearance and my skin. She advised me of a skin care regiment that improved my problem areas. My eyebrows are unruly, but somehow Julia is able to tame them, shaping them to perfection. I like a natural look to my skin where make-up is involved. Julia has provided make-up application on several occasions, including weddings. She works with colors and pigments that compliment my complexion. Best of all, you look like yourself, only better! Julia is very warm and welcoming. On every visit, I leave feeling very de-stressed!

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.

Sarah did make up for a photoshoot that I was involved in and I couldn't have been more satisfied with her work. She's an amazing make up artist who was on time, prepared, and flexible. She was also very kind and accommodating to the rest of the people who were involved with the shoot. I will definitely be using her services again in the future!

Zoe Inez did a great job for me. I had never had professional make-up done before, and wanted it done for photos. It made a huge difference! The make-up hid imperfections, brightened my face and definitely made me look years younger. She was also very nice and talked to me beforehand about what kind of look I wanted to achieve.

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.
