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!

Not only was she on time but she was professional and they were so fast (not too fast) they were able to get us done early. Tanya is an awesome stylist and makeup artist. She did my makeup so well that I was speechless when she handed me that mirror. Would hire her again in a heart beat. No stress, no mess! Tanya you rock girl thank you so much.

I highly recommend using Stephanie for any occasion! She is very professional and very talented. Her prices are very reasonable compared to other makeup artists I researched. She is also very responsive and easy to communicate with. We communicated via text and she always responded in a timely manner, even if I reached out several times a week. After having my makeup trial with her, I immediately hired her for my wedding. A lot of stress comes with planning a wedding but makeup was something I never had to stress about. I had a few questions about different products and different makeup styles. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and gave me trustworthy advice. She really listened to all my wants/concerns and my makeup came out perfect! It is also very evident that she is passionate about what she does. My mom, my aunt, my four bridesmaids and I all had our makeup done by Stephanie for my wedding. Everyone has completely different tastes when it comes to makeup. I told Stephanie what guidelines I wanted her to follow for my bridesmaids. She was able to accommodate each bridesmaid’s style while sticking to my guidelines. Everyone was so happy with their makeup, my mom even cried when she saw herself in the mirror. (FYI - my mom’s makeup did NOT run when she cried!) Everyone’s makeup also stayed on the entire night, even after the wedding was long over. She was very punctional the morning of my wedding as well. She came early to set everything up so the setup time did not take away from the time she had to do anyone’s makeup. I don’t have anything bad to say and wouldn’t change a thing!

Emily is very professional, has great punctuality, knows her makeup, and has a great personality as well and is very easy going which is very calming to a bride. She did the makeup for my wife and I on our wedding day in two separate locations. and she far exceeded what we ever thought we'd look like. We would highly recommend Emily to anyone. If we ever need a makeup artist in the future we will be hiring Emily for her excellent services again.

Jessica is an extremely talented makeup artists. Her communication is above average and her professionalism speaks for its self. She came to my house (brought all her own stuff including a chair and makeup light) and did makeup for me and my 4 bridesmades on my wedding day a few weeks ago. We all still talk about how much we loved our makeup and joke we wish we could always have Jessica on call! She arrived on time and worked efficiently to get us all beautified on time. I can’t wait to hire Jessica again for any/all future events...you should do the same! Thanks for making my (our) day more beautiful!!

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.

Kelsey was the hair and make up artist on the second season of our web series "Method or Madness" as well as on the music video for Isle of Rhodes that we produced. We absolutely loved working with her. She always worked quickly without ever sacrificing her quality of work. She was a real pleasure to have on set with her great spirit and sense of humor, especially when we were working some very long hours. We highly recommend her! She's a true gem!

I was the “Best Mate” in my best friend’s wedding and I was responsible for finding a makeup artist for the bridal party. Evan was quick to respond and discuss options for the girls. He worked with the bride to come up with her look and the look for the group. Everyone was beautiful and he made my job very easy!

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.
