Melissa is an amazing hairstylist/makeup artist. She works very hard and is always aiming to please her clients. Beauty is her profession but she LIVES it!! Just take a look at her work, it speaks for itself. Melissa Morgan did my makeup for a photoshoot I did for Breast Cancer awareness. I had no hair, so my face/ makeup was very important for me to feel as confident as possible. I felt absolutely beautiful! The makeup was exactly what I wanted & couldn't have been more perfect. So if you are looking for someone to listen to what YOU really want & make you look and feel fabulous, Melissa Morgan is your girl!!!

I came to L.L. Nicole looking to have my make up done for a night on the town at an upscale event. What impressed me most about the service was her professionalism. She really took the time to find out what I wanted my makeup to convey and from there she used her skills to give me a look that was better than I even imagined. I have been doing my make up for years now and of course have seen pictures of professional makeup jobs but never did I imagine that I would look so good. She also gave me some great tips such as how to better blend my eye shadows when doing my make up myself. I will definitely use her services again for future engagements!

    When I first met Emi, I was enchanted by her beauty and unique style. Her hair was so gorgeous and her beautiful big eyes.. I had to ask if she was a model. She told me she was a hair stylist and makeup artist.. I always say I want someone who I feel is beautiful and knows what they are "selling".. She is a walking advertisement for her Art! I've been in Myrtle Beach for 17 years and she is the Best stylist I've ever known here! I'm so glad she has graced the coast of the Carolinas with her presence and talents. now Myrtle Beach will be more beautiful! I've recently run into friends who have fresh, new "young" looks (as I'm 50!) She's rejuvenating and giving the Cougar crowd fabulous flirty looks! Thanks Emi Jennifer

    I had Renee do the makeup for me and my bridal party of 8. It was a lot of girls, more than expected. After the first few girls got their makeup done, those who were supposed to do their own asked if Renee had time for them lol. She was very professional and accommodated everyone and was so sweet. Highly recommend her!!

I would love to create the perfect look for your next event and show you exactly the kind of makeup magic I love.

    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.
