I could not say more great things about Jennifer Greising! From our first contact, she was professional and prompt in getting back to me and her prices were so reasonable I was immediately feeling comfortable booking her for my wedding. The week before the wedding, I went to her fantastic studio in Medina for a makeup trial where she helped me decide what would look best with my complexion in combination with what "look" I was going for. I walked away from my trial feeling so confident and ready for the wedding, she relieved a lot of nerves! She showed up right on schedule for the actual wedding day, and even brought along her sister (also a talented makeup artist) to help make sure all 8 of my girls were made up efficiently and on time. We were actually ahead of schedule, which is unheard of for weddings. She even waited around patiently when all the other girls were finished because I wanted my bridal makeup to be the freshest. She brought all her own makeup lights, table, and high chairs, so all I needed to worry about was letting her in the door. I was so thrilled to have worked with Jennifer and would gladly recommend her to everyone I know. Thanks for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day, Jennifer!

Megan is AMAZING! The moment I met her it felt like I had know her for years, she has such an easy going and fun personality, which makes it such a relaxed and enjoyable experience! The preview went great, I am not one to wear a whole lot of makeup so I was hesitant to even have a makeup artist for the wedding, but she listed to my concerns and wants and the result was flawless! On my wedding day I had no concerns and trusted her expertise! I had a million comments on my makeup and all the girls and moms loved their makeup as well! We all looked great! I will refer Megan to anyone who asks, and I will definitely be seeing her again for other occasions!

Daris was the makeup artist for my parents 10 Year Vow Renewal in June of 2018. We could not have asked for a BETTER experience from a makeup artist. She was there when scheduled, even when we were behind and she remained flexible, accommodating and smiling! She left us all feeling absolutely beautiful for the evening, our photos look great and I cannot thank her enough!!!!!! BOOK WITH DARIS of D GILLIAM ARTISTRY. There is no way you could regret it!!

Stephen is very professional, talented, and reasonably priced! I was so happy to have him as the makeup artist for my wedding. He traveled to me for both the makeup trial and the wedding day. This meant a lot, especially since he was traveling from further than the opposite side of the city, and his pricing still remained very fair. On the day of the trial, he gave me a look on the first try that was exactly what I didn't even know I wanted. I had previously sent him a few celebrity photos from Pinterest to describe the looks I like, and he managed to combine them all to create a natural, but still glamorous look. I never wear foundation and when I do wear eye makeup, it is often only once or twice per month, so it was important to me that the makeup wasn't too over the top. Stephen was able to achieve just that, but still make me feel beautiful. I also love that he used false lashes to add a little extra pop to my eyes. Luckily for me, my makeup trial was the morning of my bridal shower, so I was able to test out the look and see how long it would last. I received countless compliments on my makeup at the shower and it lasted all day. On the day of the wedding, Stephen arrived prepared and professional as usual. I had him do my MOH's makeup first while I got my hair done, then my makeup, then my mom, then one of my bridesmaids. Stephen worked on our makeup from about 9am-1pm without a break. He even managed to cut down the per person time for my mom and bridesmaid (since they arrived a little later than planned) in order to accommodate my tight timeline. The four of us who had our makeup done were very pleased with the end product. We all felt beautiful, but still like ourselves. I felt that my makeup was even better on the wedding day than the trial, and it lasted all day and into the night from about 10am to midnight when I washed it off. If you are looking for a talented makeup artist who is willing to travel to you and offer great prices, Stephen with Walkintobeauty is the right choice. I would strongly recommend him!

I have worked with lauren several times ofor all different types of events ranging from girls night out to birthday events and most importantly my wedding. She is extremely talented and her smoky eye can't be bet. In my opinion she is one of the best. I deal with makeup artist on a daily basis and would have to say that lauren's attention to detail and product knowledge and creativity makes her a cut above the rest. I found that when I set down in her chair for the first time I wasn't just a clients but a friend she got to know my style and was able to create a look that was perfect for me! It is my professional opinion as a member of the fashion business that she is a true talent. If you don't believe me try her out for yourself you can't ho wrong!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
