My husband and I got married September 26th 2015, Kate did the makeup for myself, 3 bridesmaids, and my mom. To say she nailed it would be an understatement! She came to the salon we had our hair done at. By the time we were finished, I looked like a porcelain doll, and my bridesmaids and mom looked stunning! I am a cryer. I cry a lot, so my wedding day was NO exception. She had our makeup all done by 1:30 pm. By 11:00 pm, I still looked flawless. After all the crying, hugging, sweating, and kissing, my makeup (and my bridesmaid's and mom's) hadn't moved. As we were leaving the reception, I still had people coming up to me saying how flawless my makeup looked. I cannot recommend this young lady enough. She went above and beyond what I expected of a makeup artist, and I am so glad I had found her for my wedding!

Jane is amazing! She provided the makeup services for my wedding party and everyone looked beautiful! I was able to meet Jane for a trial appointment first and she did a great job of providing suggestions, but also listening to my feedback. We kept in touch in between the trial and the big day, so I had no worries about timing or communication. She also has a great personality and the whole bridal party enjoyed a fun and relaxing morning of being pampered. I would highly recommend Jane for any wedding or special occasion!

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!!

oco did a killer job with our wedding makeup. She did makeup on me (the bride) 3 bridesmaids, one bridesman, as well as mother and grandmother of the bride. Each of our looks were unique and beautiful and photographed incredibly well. I truly have never felt so beautiful. We all had such a great time with Coco, she helped add to our fun get ready vibe the morning of the wedding and she fit right in. During our first meeting, Coco asked all the right questions to get the right look for my big day, and helped me feel at ease. She constantly stayed in contact, was prompt and reliable. I would sincerely recommend Coco for any of your makeup needs. She more than exceeded my expectations, and you better believe if I need to look stunning for anything, I will give her a call :)

Moira did the makeup for my sisters wedding for the bridal party and the mother of the bride. She not only has technical skills and made all the girls feel beautiful she also is very personable and was easy to communicate with. She was accommodating to my sisters requests and wishes and even met her at the hotel to do her make-up trial. I wish I lived in Cleveland and could have Moira do my make-up every day!

My career with MAC took me across the country and exposed me to celebrities, New York Fashion Week, and some of the absolute best Makeup Artists in the industry. I've attended master classes hosted by Alex Box and Rick Baker. I worked backstage at New York Fashion Week at Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, and Delpozo. I've been sent as the Key Makeup Artist for Steven Tyler, Dorothy Hamill, and Johnny Weir. It's safe to say that I wouldn't be the Artist I am today without MAC Cosmetics. I have always had a strong passion for makeup and the fashion industry, and spent my teenage years watching runway shows on E! every Saturday morning. I started stalking the MAC counter downtown Chicago, until one day, a MAC Artist finally said those words I dreamed of hearing... "Why don't you work here?" That was 2005, and since then, I've worked for MAC in several positions and locations including MAC PRO in Chicago, Resident Trainer in Minneapolis, and Trainer in Cleveland. I'm excited to be starting fresh in Cleveland, Ohio as a Freelance Makeup Artist. I know that my 11+ years experience, talent, and professionalism can serve this terrific city well.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
