Jazmine was amazing, we kept in contact up until the minute she arrived. I made many changes along the way and she accommodated all of them. Our makeup was flawless and lasted all night with so much dancing and pictures I was surprised. Jazmine gave us just what we wanted and added her professional touch to make us look so amazing. Very satisfied wedding party of 5 and then a last minute add on. She is a professional, she worked in a very tight space and made it work well. I will be using her makeup service again and again. Thanks Jazmine

I have nothing but good things to say about Event Hair and Makeup. Tonya did my hair for my wedding. She came to me during her vacation to do my hair trial! On my wedding day, she came to my hotel room with an assistant and they both did an amazing job with my bridesmaids and myself. A few of my girls needed their hair taken out and redone several times, and these ladies were so professional and understanding, really wanting to make sure that everyone was happy with the way they looked. As for my own hair, I couldn't have been more thrilled with the way it turned out. It was just the way I had envisioned, and my groom loved it. I highly recommend Tonya for your next event.

It was a little rushed, but that is the only negative thing about my experience. She was really flexible and kind. She was open to my ideas and did my makeup well.

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!

I have used Corey (AKA BrushLuxe) for several occasions. I heard about Corey through a friend. I've not been disappointed. She listens to me about styles, colors and designs and together, we create an idea which she always executes with precision. Always well worth the price. I would absolutely recommend Corey/BrushLuxe for makeup design.

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

Renee has been doing my hair and makeup for at least a decade. Her attention to detail shows in the quality of her work. She has done everything from a simple trims to my hair, color correction (in the case that I regrettably dyed my own hair or someone else did ) , blonde highlights without ruining the health of hair , makeup looks for various events. She is amazing at her craft, her art, her passion.

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.
