Clover contacted me right away to discuss what she could offer for our party. She had many options for our kids party. The artwork was beautiful! We did face painting and glitter tattoos. Thank you Clover!!

Valen is was absolutely great for my event. We did a trial run which I would definitely recommend. It helped get both of us on the same page for what I was hoping for and what I would look like with certain styles. At the real event, Valen’s makeup made me feel very beautiful and glamorous with my theme without making me feel like I wasn’t myself and my hair looked great without looking too crunchy or plastic with hairspray. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist!

Tasha was one of the bridal makeup artists that my sister had a trial with. My sister loved the hair and the way Tasha plumped up her lips. Tasha drove to my sister, brought in all the equipment and even stayed late to ensure that we had an opportunity to see the finished product. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. We ended up going with someone who had more experience with Indian skin and hair for the wedding. However, Tasha's work quality in the trial was really good and I just had to leave this review!

Jessica was a dream to work with. We hired her for an in-home makeup session for Halloween. We were excited to work with her to get some glamorous makeup to go with our costumes. We worked with her in advance to provide her with inspirational pictures so she could source whatever colors, gems or glitter she needed. When Jessica arrived day of, she came with all the professional equipment in tow (chair, light, etc.) We were very impressed with her demeanor, her skills, and her spread of makeup - including lashes. The final product was awesome, especially my friend who went as a "snow queen" and had some really cool makeup on. Mine was a little more understated (just heavy eye make up and dark lipstick for my "witch"). Both of us were pleased and were complimented through out the night. Would totally work with Jessica again and recommend her without hesitation!

Andrea was amazing and did a quality job in a very short amount of time. My daughter had 30 kids at her halloween/ birthday party and she was able to paint the face of every child who wanted to have it done in the 90 minute time frame we had her for. She had a great variety of makeup and tattoos, and the faces she made were extremely well done and beautiful. She was also friendly and fun and the kids all loved her. I am very satisfied with her services and would most definitely recommend her to anyone.

The BTSG were great! They were able to complete 6 girls in a timely manner for my wedding. They gave each girl exactly what they wanted for hair and makeup. The were really professional and were great to talk to. I would recommend them to other people and I hope to use them again in the future! Thank you for the great job!

Ani provided make-up for myself. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. She has a wonderful eye for color, respectfully listens to your requests, and moves throughout the getting-ready period of the day with a calm, collected stress-free attitude. Ani is a true professional, and has a passion for her work. She really can do anything, you just have to communicate what you want and you will not be disappointed. I would recommend Ani to anyone in need of a makeup artist for a wedding or a special event, she is absolutely the best!

Thankful i found Ashley via thumbtack. She did my makeup for prom and i received so many compliments. I also wanted to share with anyone that thumbtack is making it very hard for artists like Ashley to get customers. Makeup artists are being charged upwards of 20 dollars just to be contacted and are charged even if you don’t respond ever again. This makes me really sad that hard working women are having their money taken like that. Hopefully you can get in touch with her by googling Glamsformation beauty and getting all her contact info!! She’s worth it!

I have never been more confident in my makeup skills after having my makeup lesson with Ashley! She is incredibly patient and knowledgeable about makeup application and has a fantastic teaching style. I would recommend her to anyone looking for tips and tricks on how to apply makeup. I would also hire her to do my makeup for special occasions. Hands down one of the best makeup artists I’ve ever met (and I’ve met a ton over my lifetime).

Regina did my makeup on Christmas Eve in 2014 and she did an outstanding job! I told her what I would be wearing and she made sure to match my make up to that outfit. The makeup looked very clean and neat on my face and blended in very well. She took the time to make sure it was done correctly and was very professional! I would recommend her to all of my friends and to anyone who wants/needs their makeup done!

If you want the best then Robin is the one you need to go to. My daughter used Robin to do her hair and makeup for her wedding. Robin also did my hair, my mom's hair and three of the bridesmaids hair. Not only did my daughters hair and makeup look fantastic but she appeared like an angel floating down the aisle. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous because of the detail Robin put into the hair design and makeup. When it comes to trusting someone to make that special day memorable we couldn't have asked for a better person. Robin is not only professional, but she takes the time to get to know the people she is working with, their likes and dislikes. She really listens to what you have in mind as far as hair styles go. Not only is Robin a professional hair and makeup artist but she goes out of her way to make your special day as stress free as possible. She knows the time limits you are facing to get everything done. A few months after my daughters wedding, we were attending a friends daughters wedding and her hair stylist got sick. Needless to say they were in a panic. I called Robin and she was able to get to the church and do the bride, brides mother, and bridesmaids hair before the wedding. She's the best!!!

I couldn’t have picked a better Makeup Artist to do my makeup. I’ve had worse prior experiences where the artist did not respect my wishes and make me look cakey(which everyone knows ruins the night) and Gabrielle was far from that. She even brought me out in the natural lighting and matched my makeup to the lighting inside and out. She was super kind the whole time and always showed interest and compassion into my appointment. I heard about her through a bunch of people and am so glad I listened to the very positive “word of mouth”. I will definitely be going back to Gabrielle for every event I have. She was great!!

Erin should have a constellation named after her. She is wonderful, smart, sweet, creative and fast. We had a last minute photo shoot with one of our artists and that artist is a bit hesitant to try anything. Erin brought out the best in her both in her attitude and her amazing work. We highly recommend you sit in her chair and let her do her thing. You will be so happy!

Jackie did my makeup for my bridal shower. I kind of contacted her last minute about it and she was very willing to work with me to make it work. She traveled to my home and did a very good job! Thanks Jackie!

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.
