I had Summer and Milly doing makeup and hair for my wedding. There were five of us getting makeup and four of us getting hair and we started at 10:00am and were done by 2:00pm. Summer and Milly were great to work with and listened to what we all wanted. All of us wanted more natural makeup and it still looked great in the photos. I got married on the coldest, windiest day we'd had in two months, but still wanted to wear my hair down. Milly did a great job creating the look I wanted and despite the wind, it held up for all the important parts (photos and ceremony). I went with Extreme Beauty because they provided a makeup artist and hairstylist, were more affordable than anything in the DC area, and included a trial. The trial was crucial and helped me get the look I wanted. Everyone looked beautiful for the wedding and Summer and Milly traveled over two hours to get to the venue!

Salon Chloe provided AMAZING hair and makeup service for my wedding on August 15, 2015!! From the very beginning Cassie was great to work with- she was super easy to contact and responded right away to my emails and texts. I booked a hair and makeup trial at Salon Chloe and Cassie took the time to answer all of my questions and helped brainstorm different looks for the trial. I loved the hair style and natural makeup look from the trial and we decided to use it for the wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Cassie was flexible and helped arrange for a few last minute makeup additions for my some of my bridesmaids. The morning of the wedding, Cassie and her team arrived early, got set up, and then transformed myself, my two mothers, and seven bridesmaids into a picture-perfect group of women, and they finished right on time! We all looked beautiful. I absolutely loved my experience working with Salon Chloe and 100% recommend Cassie and her team for future brides and bridal parties!! A++++ service, loved the experience, super professional, AWESOME all around!

Hi everyone! I must say that I was very impressed with Ms. K. Artisme face painting designs. She was wonderful and believe me my twin girls were besides themselves. They loved the makeup and I enjoyed watching them and the other kids at their birthday party. I planned on using her during my Halloween batch. You will not be disappointed!

We hired Mary Katie to help us look our best for our family photos. She is a very sweet person. Most importantly, she is a total professional. She made us all look beautiful. Additionally, the products she used were not cakey or flakey. All makeup products were light and lasted for a very long time. I loved what she did with my eyes. She did a smokey look and I received many compliments. I will definitely use Mary Katie again.

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.

Summer did such an exceptional job on the make up for my wedding! Not only are her makeup skills top notch, she is also very down to earth and caring which is exactly what you need on your wedding day! She did makeup for myself, my 7 bridesmaids, my mother and my step mother and everyone looked absolutely stunning!!! The makeup also lasts ALL DAY LONG! You will not be disappointed by Summer's work ethic, bright personality and creative genius. The onsite makeup also created a relaxed atmosphere that I would highly recommend to every bride out there. Do yourself a favor and hire Summer for onsite makeup needs! She will blow you away, trust me! :)

Jamilah did makeup for my photoshoots. She replied promptly to my request and was on time at 7 am both days. She was able to create two different looks - a natural one and a dramatic one. She did a good job of matching my skin tone, which is important as a woman of color. Very professional and was able to explain what she was doing each step of the way. The pictures turned out great!

Amanda and Blush Beautiful were absolutely perfect to work with for my wedding last weekend. She came on-site to our venue, which made things very convenient. She was responsive throughout the planning process and made me feel gorgeous on my wedding day. I was absolutely thrilled with my makeup and received many compliments throughout the night. I'd recommend her ten times over to brides looking for makeup services for their big day. Thank you, Amanda, for everything!

Debbie was early and managed to fit an extra girl in for makeup the day of my wedding. She did a perfect job on us. The makeup for each girl suited their style perfectly. I wanted a natural look and she did an amazing job at making me look like a beautiful bride without applying a ton of makeup. I still looked like me, but better. We made fast friends and we were all sorry to see her go when makeup was done. I 120% recommend her, and will be hiring her again in the future!

Athena is such a sweetheart to work with, and her talent speaks for itself! I hired Athena to show me the ropes of basic makeup application, and she went above and beyond; she met me at Sephora, helped me pick out the correct foundation, and showed me the tricks of the trade. I also hired Athena for a makeup night at my house, and everyone attending LOVED it. She is so warm and friendly, and she custom-tailors her makeup to your wants and needs. I work in the wedding industry and see so many makeup artists, and I can tell you Athena is one of the top artists out there! You will not be disappointed if you hire her.

I had Andrea come to my house to do a trial makeup session for my upcoming baby shower. WOW! She did great. I let her do her own thing when it came to creating my look and it came out fantastic. She is very knowledgeable on makeup application and is friendly and fun to be around! I have already hired her officially to complete my makeup for my baby shower next month. Thank you so much! :)

Brooke provided makeup services for my rehearsal dinner. She was incredibly attentive and professional. I have acne scarring and she was able to conceal it so I felt gorgeous on this special day. Brooke continuously asked if anything should be changed and made sure I liked the look. I highly recommend Brooke for your make up needs

She's friendly! She did not pack the makeup on my face which I loved. I'm not a big makeup fan but she always makes it look natural as possible. I went to her 3 times and I loved each one! No complaints!

    Jasmine did a phenomenal job on my makeup for my wedding and was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was proffesional throughout the entire process, she took the time to ensure that I was completely happy with everything she did. I have extremely sensitive skin and she made sure that everything she used skin/makeup was good for sensitive skin. I couldn’t believe how amazing I looked and my bridesmaids wouldn’t stop looking at themselves, she made everyone look and feel beautiful. The makeup lasted throughout the entire night. I loved her so much that I have already booked her for a photo shoot that I have in the upcoming year and one of my bridesmaids will also be booking her for her upcoming wedding. BOOK HER! You won’t be disappointed!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
