Charles helped me with a range hood install. This was no simple feat as it meant running ductwork through my 100+ year old house, cutting into walls that likely haven't been touched for decades. Charles handled it like a champ in a little under a day for a price that was very reasonable. I need to take care of a few other odds & ends and already have him booked to come back!

Holly is an amazingly talented makeup artist. Being one myself and having the pleasure of working along side her for shoots and weddings, it is always a great experience. Her professionalism with her work and clients is a rarity today. To be a part of it is a privilege. I would recommend Holly for all your photos, weddings, and other special events that require Extreme Beauty.

Mike completed the project in a courteous and professional manner. He took time after finishing to explain to us what needed to after he was gone. As he left he us he said that if we had a problem with the new lawn contact him and he would help out. In summary I would use mike's company again and recommend him to others.

Katie was very professional and responded quickly. She was easy to communicate with and made me feel very comfortable that she would arrive on time or even early for our appointment. She provided both hair and make up for our event and we were very happy with our finished look. She has a wonderful personality that made us feel instantly comfortable and she really listened to what we wanted and recommended age appropriate looks and colors. My daughter could use more shimmery make up whereas I needed more matte, muted tones. I was very happy I chose Katie and would definitely use her if I come back to Maryland for another special occasion. I would highly recommend Katie. I read in one of her reviews that she was always on time or early and that was absolutely the truth!! That is a great quality to me!!

Marvin and his crew were very professional. They took 3 days to finish the job. Other contractors said 3 to 5 days. They showed up every morning at 8 am , just as they said they would. For me, that was important. They worked as a great team. Everyone knew their job and performed it professionally. When I need other work done, they get the first call, Thanks Marvin.

Summer & Milly were such a pleasure to work with. They both were very flexible with me to find time for a trial, and with very little direction were able to find a look that I thought would be perfect for my special day. For my wedding day, we had six bridesmaids, one bride and one mother of the groom to get hair and make up done in five hours - and they succeeded! They both handled everything we threw at them with so much grace and a positive attitude. We loved spending our morning with them in the bridal suite, their contributions and comments to our conversations were the best. They did an excellent job making us all look beautiful. I also need to give extra props to Summer for making the poison ivy on my arm disappear, that truly was magic. Thank you again Summer and Milly, you started my wedding day off on the right foot!

So we bought a house that needed a total renovation and I reached out to Thumbtack for help. Dimitri was the first to respond. I met him and several other contractors at the house to interview and for them to give their costs of the total job. Dimitri stood out with his ideas and attention to detail. He listened to what we wanted and respectfully gave his opinion if there was something he felt would not give us satisfaction in the end. His pricing was fair as it was not the highest or lowest but I just liked his approach to our needs. We picked Dimitri for the reasons above and many more. He was always available via phone or in person to discuss matters and was open for changes and additional add-ons. His crew was on time everyday and they kept a clean and neat work place. Specialty sub-contractors that Dimitri brought in to do work were all top grade in my opinion. Thank you Dimitri for a job well done. Our house is Beautiful. Jim T. Lititz, PA

Troy installed a glass and slate back splash for us and did a really nice job. Troy was great to work with, he was able to get to our job in a good time. He set a day and time and was punctual ans finished the job the same day. The tile work looks great! I would hire Troy again and would recommend him to anyone.

I had Ryan and his team out to complete a paint job in my living room, dining room, high foyer, and hallway. They were excellent to work with from the beginning. They were able to complete the job in a timely manner and were very professional. I liked their service so much that I have booked an additional paint project with them for my large finished basement. I also learned that they finish garages! I will be having them back to complete that as well!

I have not yet had Larry do any work for me but have seen the work that Larry has done. He has a great eye for color and is able to turn any old piece of furniture into a beautiful finished piece. He has also painted many pictures onto pieces of wood which creates a very old and antique piece of art. I have seen the walls he has painted and they are beautiful..so many different finishes. He is very creative and will give many good ideas while doing his work to create a lovely piece of art. He has been doing this work for many years and I would recommend his artistic talent to those looking for something different and unique.

If you are in the throws of wedding planning, you can rejoice now that you have found Aida!!! Not only will she make you your most stunning self, but she will make your life so simple! In the midst of planning a wedding, it was such a relief to have a pro like Aida handling all things beauty. We began communicating about five months before our big day. I told her my ideas and shared some of my favorite inspiration photos. From those images, she developed a one-of-a-kind up-do, which she customized during the trial. It was seriously perfect. On the day of, The Bridal Beauty Specialists traveled to my family's house with all the goodies in tow, airbrush makeup, blow-out tools, up-do necessities, lashes, etc. Aida had already taken care of scheduling and pricing for me and my six bridesmaids (+ my mom and one unplanned aunt), so there was nothing left to do but enjoy the day and get pretty! We chose to pay individually on the day because that is what worked for us, but Aida will tailor the day based on your wants and needs. I could go on and on, but all you need to know is that working with Aida is a dream. She and her beauty team are extraordinarily talented (not to mention fabulous company!), and I guarantee they will help make your day so special. Thank you again, Aida!!!

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.
