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 recently married (May 10th, 2014) in an outdoor ceremony on a rainy humid morning. Jhanna's created an EXACT recreation of the updo picture from pintrest that I sent her as well as a flawless makeup application. She arrived at the chapel early (and thank god because I couldn't so crying so more time was need for makeup) and stayed for touch ups. She was calm and professional. I would highly recommend her service to any bride to be.

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.

Kelley did my makeup before my NPC Bikini competition. She was able to match my spray tan perfectly to my face. The final product was beautiful and lasted through prejudging at 11am all the way to finals at 7pm. I am very thankful for Kelley's great work and would highly recommend her!

I was privileged to have my make up done by Dee a few weeks ago. I was skeptical at first because I am really picky when it comes to who I let do any kind of treatments to my face. To say I was impressed is an understatement. Dee was very professional and friendly at the same time. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. The end result was truly fabulous. I would have her do my makeup again in a heartbeat!

Fatima was amazing, both my hair and makeup were beautiful for my wedding! We did a trial (which I highly recommend) to set everything up and in the morning of the wedding everything went off without a hitch - it was a wonderful experience and my husband and I couldn't be happier!

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!!!

It was really nice to have someone be as excited about my day as I was but also, chill enough to calm me down during the madness. Oh yeah, and we all looked so good! my makeup lasted ALL night and even looked good the next morning! I would highly recommend them!

Brittney is by far the best make up artist I have used thus far. She is very versatile in what type of make up style she can offer whether it be glitter make up/glam/suddle or even costume make up. Besides her many talents she is very personable and professional. I have used her for both my weddings (we had a catholic and Buddhist wedding) and regular date nights before. Not enough praises I can give to this woman, just book her and be Wow'D.

My skills and knowledge of the beauty field is what sets me apart from other artists, I don't just provide a service I provide a complete experience. Professionalism, knowledge of my field and quality work is all my clients ever receive when working with me. My work as an MUA can range from very light and natural to bold bright colors and even very glamour a depending on the occasion, I really try my best to offer my clients exactly what they are looking for.

Now, with 10 years under my belt, I continue to capture not only the beauty, but the fun and quirky side of each person.

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.
