Such a great makeup artist! She did a fantastic job on my my and me for my parents' 50th Wedding celebration. What an amazing eye she has. I had such compliments all day and many wanting her name! She went above and beyond by giving me makeup tips and bringing me mascara to keep. Loved it and can't wait to use her again. Thank you Jaz!!

WOW!!! We hired Ashley as a last minute replacement for a magazine cover shoot that we were creating over the Labor Day Weekend. It was meant to be!!! We went into a panic when our makeup artist backed out - there was no need. She eased our tensions, her bubbly personality and professionalism combined with serious skills helped to create one of the best photo shoots we have ever participated in. EVERYONE wanted her card - models, hair, designers!!! The most experienced model didn't take her makeup off before leaving - I asked her why - she said she had never had anyone do her makeup as good as it was and she wanted to enjoy it!!! Thanks Ash!!! We will see you again! Bill & Kris

What can I say about Ms. Daurisa? She is an absolutely talented, patient and FABULOUS makeup artist! The first time Daurisa ever did my makeup, I was hooked and since that day I don't want anyone else to do my makeup. I have extremely teary eyes and I'm a blinker anytime a pencil comes near my eyes, this is a nightmare for most makeup artist, but not for Daurisa. She was so gentle when applying the makeup and so patient with me. Her professionalism, precision to detail and, outstanding talent all came out in my fabulous makeup. Not only does Daurisa see beauty in you....she also brings it out.

Tammi was professional from the first correspondance, through the makeup trial and the wedding day. Our makeup was flawless and Tammi was true to her word- that our makeup would last 12 hrs. We looked sensational from 8:30 in the morning until midnight when our beautiful day was over. She did such a fantastic job - the makeup was so natural looking and the pictures are exquisite! Thank you for everything Tammi - I will recommend you to anyone having a special event that would need a makeup artist.

Krista did my hair which was a bit unique and complicated with a variety of braids, volume with extensions. I can't express how beautiful my hair turned out! The style perfectly matched my vision. Everyone complimented me on my hair even when I posted it on Facebook it was the hair then the dress. Krista brought her associate, Casey to do my makeup which also turned out very very beautiful. I don't wear makeup and she made me look 10 years younger with soft romantic colors to highlight the good parts of my face. They were both prompt, professional and respectful of everything by returning whatever they moved such as chairs to their original spots. Even making sure they have rubber wheels to not scratch the pine floors that were in the old farmhouse we got married in. I would highly recommend using Kouture Beauty Designs for your wedding or any event. I will hire them again in January for part two of my wedding! Thanks to both of you!

So grateful to Corey for saving the day! My regular makeup artist had a family emergency the day of my red carpet event. I put out an early morning SOS, but wasn't hopeful I would be able to find someone on such short notice. Corey responded promptly, chatted with me and offered to come out to me early that afternoon. She showed up on time, set up quickly and I immediately felt at ease. Corey works very quickly and couldn't have been nicer; my makeup looked so pretty, my friend (who NEVER wears makeup) asked her to do "a little something" to her face too! Thanks again Corey. You stepped in to prevent my little disaster and earned yourself a new customer.

Had a blast. My mother and I took a makeup class for beginners. Jeannie was professional, and didn't mind us asking a 101 questions. She broke down every step, so beginners like us knew exactly what to do. And we was allowed to bring my own tools and makeup. We will definitely be taking another class soon

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.
