I was hesitant to hire a makeup artist for a full day of photo sessions without meeting her first, but it turns out my anxiety was completely unnecessary! Chelsea did a phenomenal job on every single client, including one who does hair and makeup professionally herself and couldn't stop talking about how much she loved her hair and makeup. We will definitely look forward to using her again!

Tara was recommended to me by my stylist for wedding makeup. From my first interaction with her, she was warm, friendly and professional. She was very responsive and helpful. Tara did a great job of listening to what I wanted and developing a look that worked well for me through our trial. On the big day she did a fantastic job on my look as well as my bridesmaids and mother. I loved the way I looked in the moment and in the photos after. I was also delighted by how well my makeup wore. Even in the last photos of the night, it still looked great. Tara has great energy, she inspires confidence and is fun to be around!

Jamie did makeup and hair for my wedding! She was lovely and kind, patient and friendly. I don't wear much makeup regularly, so I wanted a bright and natural look. She listened to all of my concerns and did a wonderful job. She also makes her own makeup line, which was very good on my skin. I fell asleep without washing my face and there were no breakouts! Even in the 95 degree heat and an outdoor wedding, her hair and makeup held up wonderfully :) If you want a great listener and professional artist, Jamie is the one.

Working with Claire was a delight! Not only did she do a fantastic job with a really nice natural looking look but she's a joy to talk with while she's working, I've had my makeup done a couple times before but they always made my colors a little too dark especially on my pale skin and eyebrows. However, Claire was very considerate with her choice in colors for me and I really enjoyed my experience with her. 20/10 would recommend!

Moriah made up my husband and I for Halloween. Our basic premise was "living dead girl and guy". Our makeup looked amazing and we were highly complimented all night at our Halloween party. Moriah did great work, showed up on time, confirmed our appointment etc and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to dress up for a party and stand out from the crowd. She spent two hours with the both of us and even helped me put on my fake eyelashes to finish off my outfit :)

I had an amazing experience with CruBeauty. She was attentive, she was fun, she was everything I was hoping for in a makeup artist. I normally do my own makeup so I was super hesitant to let someone else do it, but Cristina made me feel so comfortable it was like she was the one doing my makeup all along! I wouldn’t even consider anyone else when I have someone I can trust 100% now. HIGHLY recommend.

As a photographer, it was nice to work with an experienced polite makeup artist. She's really talented, quick, and her work is outstanding. She's super friendly and funny which is a nice change compared to other short tempered and ego driven artists I've worked with in the past. 5 stars, I'll work with her on my next shoot without a doubt.

    You will have the best experience working with Christie! Hands down, she is one of the most talented Makeup Artists in the Pacific Northwest. Christie has spent years training with CHANEL, Laura Mercier and making countless brides look beautiful. She has a natural ability in choosing complimentary colors coupled with perfect application technique which is flawless. She is also a wiz with false eyelashes. Everyone who leaves her chair looks stunning. The added bonus -- Christie is professional, smart and very sweet. I highly recommend CM Artistry!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
