K. Artist did an awesome job at our event. She was early, took care with each child to make sure they got the face-painting they wanted and made sure each child saw the end product and was happy with their results. I highly recommend her services. She is professional and her work is incredibly well done.

It was my wedding day, I needed a makeup artist, she was the only one who showed me her work. She did an amazing job on myself and my bridal party. The makeup was so light yet still so amazing. I would definitely use her again if i had another major event. On the plus side she had an awesome personality she was very outgoing and so warm hearted.

My makeup was fantastic & so was Ashley. Ashley's not only professional but also very sweet. I needed her services for my sister's wedding, I was a bridesmaid. The glitche was that I was pregnant and past my due date. Ashley was so patient as I didn't know if I would actually be able to attend the wedding up until that very day. Ashley was very punctual & professional. The makeup was wonderful. I got compliments the entire day/night. And it stayed on all day - thanks Ashley for helping me look so beautiful on my sister's big day!!!

Emily was kind, professional and all around wonderful! My trial was included in my package and she took her time to talk me through what she was doing and made sure that I was comfortable and confident. She didn't rush me or make me feel as if I couldn't ask her to change or do something different. On my wedding day she got to my house before start time and was set up ready to go early which was so nice as a bride you don't want to have any worries! She was very professional and a joy to have as a part of my wedding day. She did my make up, my mom's and my two maids of honor. We all looked natural but glamorous. The make up did not feel heavy and lasted for hours on all of us. She even gave us touch up baggies. I would definitely recommend her for any formal event. Thanks Emily!!!

Elaine did my makeup and my four bridesmaids for my bridal shower and the girls looked amazing!! One of my bridesmaids highly recommended her so I wanted to try her out for my bridal shower. I have to admit I'm not very easy to please so I gave her my very long list of how to look and at the end I must say I never felt so amazing my make up was flawless and smooth. She is absolutely a true professional. I am DEFINITELY going to hire her for my wedding in August hope she is available.

Steph came to my home on time and completely organized every time. I have gotten my hair and make up done on several occasions and my hair cut and colored as well. She has educated me on products that are best for ME! And I feel like a queen for every event she glams me. I will never use another stylist. My only regret is that I didn’t have her for my wedding! 5 stars and I’ve already booked her for more

I hired Renee for my wedding and bridal shower. She did an AMAZING job! She was everything I was looking for. People are still talking about how good I looked. I literally thank God that I found her. I will most definitely be working with Renee again. Her contact information will forever live in my phone. I had a really hard time finding a makeup artist who serviced both Ethnic and Caucasian skin tones. Though her pictures on her website are mostly Caucasian her background is lovely. Renee was trained in NYC, has previously worked NY fashion week, and has done work for Essense magazine. She isn't like the current MUAs who literally cake the makeup on. I love Renee because she enhanced the features I already had. Her style was perfect for me, my girls, and family. My bridesmaids raved about her. Renee ensured she had every color for our skin tones. She even purchased a variety of different pallets to make sure the day was everything I dreamed of. I love working with Renee. She is one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. Her patience is unreal. She allowed me to be me high maintenance and never batted an eye. Although I hired her for her serviced she in the end became a friend. I really do look forward to connecting with her again. She helped make my wedding day magical.

    Sam made me feel very comfortable and made me look amazing. She asked a few questions like what type of event was i going to, the color of my dress and shoes, and how i was wearing my hair. The make up lasted ALLLLLLL night and i didn’t have to worry about adding or touching up anything. It was fun wearing eyelashes for the first time and she’s did them so well that i didn’t want to take them off lol. They felt very natural and they didn’t irritate my eye. I recommend Sam to any and everyone that wants to feel and look amazing on a special day or night. Thanks a bunch Sam 😘😌

    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.
