Bethany did my makeup for my daughter's wedding. She did a great job! She knew I was a little nervous about it from a prior bad experience with another makeup artist which left me feeling ridiculously made up. I don't usually wear much makeup , so after Bethany put it on me, she had me take a break to let me get used to the look. Then because she did such a good job that I actually had her apply it a little heavier! I had tons of compliments that night...even from my teenaged son and his friends! I wholeheartedly recommend Bethany to do your makeup whether for a casual or dressy look!

Lo isn't just a makeup artist/hair stylist/stylist. It's truly as if she sees you for the best version of yourself and who you want to be, and brings that to life. I've used her for photoshoots, a wedding and a WHOLE bridal party, hair styling and more, and she always FAR surpasses my wildest dreams. A true pro, amazingly inventive and the most fun and easy to work with.

I recently had a photo shoot done, and Ashely did an absolutely wonderful job with my makeup! I am a person who generally doesn't wear much makeup, as I like to feel natural and don't like the cakey feel that some makeup has, but at the same time, I wanted to have a professional looking face for the camera. Ashley understood all this, and used the right amount of makeup that highlighted my features while keeping it natural and perfect for the camera. I didn't feel like there was too much "Makeup weight" on my face. It lasted all throughout the day and my eyeshadow never creased in my eyelids, which is usually my biggest pet-peeve. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing their makeup done for any event! If I ever get married, or when I have an important music gig, I will definitely be calling Ashley!

Canaan. is. amazing. She is everything you would want in a wedding makeup and hair artist! She styled all of my bridesmaid's hair (all 7 of them), and did the makeup for me and my maid of honor. She finished them in a reasonable time, and we have never looked or felt more beautiful. Canaan is professional, friendly, and most importantly, incredibly talented. Further, her rockstar personality fit in with me and my bridesmaids like she was one of my old, longtime best friends - that made me feel so at ease and comfortable during both my one-on-one trial and the morning of my wedding! You will never feel like a stranger is in the room. Further, I have had many bad experiences with makeup artists where they don't listen to what I want or what I envision - you will NOT have this issue with Canaan. She listened to me, to my concerns, and to my desires, and created my wedding-day image that was better than I could have ever hoped for. I swear to you, she will not disappoint. She was absolutely one of the best decisions I made during my entire wedding process, and I cannot say enough positive things about her.

Hannah makes you feel so special when doing your makeup. She compliments you and really listens to your requests and gives very helpful advice. She makes the, sometimes long, process of getting your makeup done go by so quickly with her personable personality. It feels more like you're hanging out with a friend, then a makeup artist, while she makes you look beautiful. Would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of makeup services.

Kenisha did my makeup for my wedding, and I looked fabulous! She was also available to do a few of my bridesmaids' makeup and they looked stunning as well. I had gone to several other makeup artists for consultations prior to Kenisha and she was the best! She knew how to recreate exactly the style I wanted and has a natural gift. She was very professional and very personable. I would highly recommend her as someone to do your makeup for any special occasion.

    Karlee is a fantastic make up artist! I have gotten her to do my makeup for many occasions, sorority events, birthday parties and just days when I wanted to feel pretty! Not only does she do the best job on making you feel like your prettiest self but she is such a sweet and caring person you are in a comfortable setting while having your makeup done. Karlee is great about listening to your exact beauty needs and delivers on bringing out your best features. I would 10/10 recommend Karlee or all of your beauty needs.

    Rebecca did an amazing job! We used her for 11 of us to get ready for a big night out during my sisters bachelorette party. She and an assistant got us all ready (hair and makeup) in 3.5 hours. They were so fun, easy going, and talented. We would definitely use her again!

    Becca does absolutely amazing work! I used her for my engagement photos, bridal portraits, and wedding day. I not only felt beautiful, but also received so many compliments from others. My make-up showed up perfectly in photos - I didn't look over-done at all, just the best version of myself and it lasted all night without touch-ups. Even my photographer, who does editorial shoots in addition to weddings, and has worked with countless hair and makeup artists, was extremely impressed with her work and even requested her information for future collaboration. When it comes to how you look in photos that you will have and share forever, an experienced and talented MUAH is an investment that you will not regret. Whether you need make-up for an event or photography, you will not find a better option than Made by Beck!

    Kyla did an amazing job on mine and the bride's makeup the day of the wedding! She creates each look different and unique to the person. It lasted all day and all night. She knows what she's doing and encourages you not to shy about what look you want. I highly recommend Kyla. I plan on having her be my makeup artist for special occasions in the future.

        Kelsey drove all the way to Lewisburg to do makeup for my wedding. She was there on time, which I can't say for myself. She did a beautiful job on my hair and makeup, redid my daughter's hair (6 yrs old) after she ran around the farm and messed it all up, put little blush and lipstick on her to make her feel special and refreshed my mom's makeup after she went out to help in the heat and sweated the majority of it off. Then, when I lost the keys to my mom's car, she was so great and calming as I burst into tears. She was a dream. You couldn't do any better than to hire her for your day! Thank you, Kelsey!!!! :)

        I pay attention to detail. I make every one of my clients stand out among the others.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        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 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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
