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

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!

Briana did the makeup for myself, my bridal party, my mom & she even had time to do the makeup for my cousin that was not in the wedding. I absolutely love Briana from the 1st time I met her which was during the makeup trial. She wanted to know what I wanted, what I liked & what I didn't like. I even changed my mind on what I wanted after the trial & she had no problem adjusting to what I wanted done differently. The bridesmaids makeup was fabulous! No touch ups were need through out the night; that's how great the makeup was done. My makeup was also flawless. I loved it so much that I did not want to take it off at the end of the night. Overall, Briana is a great makeup artist. She's professional, she is an expert in her field & she is just a great person in general. I highly recommend Briana & will be contacting her again in the future.

If you are reading this review to decide weather or not to book Event Hair &Makeup you should stop reading now and go book them before someone else does! I truly could not have been more pleased with the service we received. Tanya was the first vender to respond to my request for on location hair and make up quotes. Her rates were on the low end for what we were asking for. (This scared me a bit because you often get what you pay for.) She promptly returned my call when I decided to try out her services. When discussing details for a trail hair and makeup session, I discovered she was nearly 2 hours away from my home and yet she did not hesitate to accommodate us. She called to confirm time and location the day before the trail session and arrived on schedule. She was prepared and professional as she listened to what "Becca" (the bride) was envisioning for her look. We quickly became confident in her skills. Becca LOVED the look Tanya created and told me later she felt beautiful. Even after the long drive and time she had already spent on Becca, Tanya agreed to also give me a hair cut to update my look. The day before the wedding again, Tanya called to confirm the time and location. On the day of the wedding when we arrived at the venue Tanya and her assistant Nellie were already there and set up ready to start. They both worked for hours on hair for the bride,maid of honor,bridesmaid,mother of the bride, and mother of the groom. Also, without any complaint they did hair for the brides sister-in-law as a least minute add on. They did undos, long curls, braids,half up half down and even added hair acsessories. We were ALL very pleased with the results! Tanya did all the makeup and her skills are amazing. I need to mention here that the bride is a redhead with very pale skin tone and one of the bridesmaids was Asian with carmel skin tone, and I have old lady skin. Tanya was able to flawlessly match and blend the right foundation to each of our very different skin tones and the results looked so natural. As a make up artist Tanya treated each face as an individual canvas and give us fresh glamour without caking on the makeup. We again were ALL beyond pleased with the results. If the skills, great price and professionalism that Event hair and Makeup team brings to an event is not enough, Tanya's personality was always light and fun and had a way of making us relax, enjoy and forget about the stress of the wedding ceremony. In my opinion, Event Hair and Makeup demonstrated professionalism and outstanding skills . Tanya is an amazing makeup artist and Tanya and Nellie are both gifted in achieving a wide range of hair styles. I will not hesitate to book them again for our next event. I feel confident in recommending them.

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 hired Emily with Love n Glow to do the wedding makeup for my bridesmaids and I and I am so glad that I did! I had my makeup trial with Emily the morning of my bridal shower so she made me look beautiful for that event and I got endless compliments on my makeup. She even traveled to my apartment to do the trial which made that hectic day a little easier! I had an early morning wedding so we started doing hair and makeup at 5am and Emily was there ready to go when we needed her. Worrying about if and when vendors will get there on the day of the wedding is not something you want to deal with and even having met Emily only once before, I knew she was reliable and had total trust in her being there on time even with such an early call time. One of the big warnings I got with wedding makeup is that some makeup artists apply makeup so heavily that you don't look like yourself. Emily chose such beautiful shades for our makeup and had such a nice balance so that my bridesmaids and I looked AMAZING, especially in the photos, but so natural that you don't look and say, wow, they have a ton of makeup on. A lot of the girls in the party, myself included, don't wear a lot of makeup on an everyday basis and she was still able to pull off this professional look of natural beauty. My mom owns a beauty salon so I can be very picky when it comes to my hair and makeup, but I wouldn't have wanted anyone else doing my makeup on my wedding day. I am so happy I found Emily and hope I have an excuse to have her do my makeup again in the future. :)

I have never had my makeup done professionally before until my cousin's Bachelorette party... I was not really big into makeup but Yanelsi did my makeup and totally changed my mind forever ... She made me feel so Gorgeous...I never realized how much makeup could make me look an feel so differently about myself... I felt like a Model .. Yanelsi is an Amazing and Beautiful person inside and out... I Will never ever go to anyone else but Yanelsi to go get my makeup done for special occasions and now she started doing makeup workshops where she actually teaches u to do ur own makeup... I went to her first Makeup workshop and was totally blown away from all the info she gives u about ur skin and how she explains how to apply ur makeup... She is so calm and patient going around to each perrson and showing them exactly what to do.. She also does makeup for Weddings, Proms, special occasions or even if u just want to look good on a night out... She did my cousin's makeup for her Wedding and my cousin looked absolutely stunning ... Flawless Makeup by Yanelsi is my forever go to Makeup Artist

Renee was so great to work with not only is she sweet but she does fabulous work. I didn't know what I wanted going into my trial since I don't usually wear much makeup. Renee gave me multiple looks at my trial so I could choose the one I felt best in. After a few days I sent an email with the final look I wanted and she nailed it on the wedding day. Simple with dramatic eyes, it felt like I wasn't even wearing makeup and the lashes lasted all night. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day, nor have I ever received so many compliments on how natural and beautiful my makeup looked. I highly recommend Renee!!

I normally don't write reviews, but I felt the need to do so since this is the first time that I received exceptional service from a makeup artist. Nicole is a very personable individual and a great listener. I had an idea of how I wanted my makeup, but I did not know how to describe it in words. Nicole was very patient with me and she walked me through the entire process. Overall, she is a personable and professional individual who is extremely detail oriented. Her delivery exceeded my expectations, I will definitely go back to her.

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.
