I needed someone to do my makeup for my senior pics so I googled makeup artist around Dayton. Nicole's thumbtack page popped up & I am beyond happy I found her to do it! She was fantastic. We used airbrush & it lasted all day until I took it off, no shine or anything normal makeup will do. I will def be having her do my makeup for any special occasion! I would recommend her to anyone!! :-)

Mandy is a fabulous makeup artist! Her talent and professionalism ensured my wedding day was flawless! She did makeup for my bride tribe and referred me to an incredible hair stylist, Meghan, from Wildflower Salon in Yellow Springs. Mandy and Meghan were a dynamic duo for my Best Day Ever. I would hire them again and again!!! Thank you so very much, Mandy!!

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.

Tonya did a great job with makeup for my wedding. Being fair haired, it's hard to find a makeup artist who knows how to apply makeup without making me look ridiculous. Not only did I not look ridiculous (always a goal) but I actually looked awesome. thanks Tonya!

Morgan did a wonderful job of aiding me with my wedding planning hair and makeup. I didn’t have a very big budget and she really helped me get the most I could with what I had and made sure everything matched what I had invisioned. She offered helpful advice and helped schedule appointments and made sure I stayed on track. She has all her own makeup and materials and also strives to use all makeup that is cruelty free. She also did all my makeup and hair and I’m not adam of wearing makeup but she did a fantastic job. She used just the right amount of makeup to enhance my natural beauty which is something I really like about what she does. She is always timly and is a good multi tasker. Also offers fair pricing for all her services. 10/10 would recommend for makeup hair or any planning help you may need.

Taylor Elise is a fabulous makeup artist. She participated in our Pamper Day at St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church. She was very engaging with the ladies and listened to what type of makeup styles they wanted. She was able to provide the perfect makeup combinations for our population. All the ladies looked gorgeous at the end or their makeup sessions. Would definitely hire her again!!!

Nanya did fantastic makeup for my fitness modeling photoshoot! I only showed her pictures of the idea I had in mind and told her the purpose of the makeup and she understood it completely. She was very enthusiastic about the makeup and anyone present could see her passion as she whipped away with her fancy and complex makeup tools. Her makeup enhances your beauty without making you look like a totally different person. She doesn't have a cookie cutter look for everyone but instead works very hard to bring out one's unique and best features. She took her time but didn't go overboard with "perfectionism". Her work was excellent and all the while, I didn't feel like the makeup session was a chore. I loved every moment of it.

    Jessica did a FANTASTIC job on my hair/makeup and my bridesmaids' hair for my special day (Oct 9th, 2016). As you can see in my pictures, everything turned out beautifully. She was super sweet, reliable, punctual, and affordable! She even helped with a little bit of set-up when I was falling behind on getting everything done. 5 stars!

    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.
