Words cannot express how grateful I was to have had Resena as my makeup artist on my wedding day. She actually made me look at least 10 years younger, and the detail of my makeup was absolutely flawless. I a was simply amazed, because I looked like a completely different person. I wish I had enough money to hire her on a full time basis.

Lorena did my makeup for my wedding and she did a stunning job! I don't know the first thing about doing makeup myself but I knew I wanted a look that fit naturally with my face and didn't paint a plastic facade! Lorena was able to see my super light complexion and craft a beautiful style with her professional skill and tools! I have already and will continue to recommend Lorena to anyone looking for a professional make up artist! Other logistics, she was on time and professional and complete my make up in the allotted time frame given. She is a lifetime artist too, once she knows your face, you'll never want anyone else to do your makeup!

Laurel was fantastic! I hired her to do makeup/hair for my wedding. (Bride, Matrons of Honor, Bridesmaids, Mother of the bride and mother of the groom) She was so accommodating and quick to answer any questions I had leading up to the big day! All of my girls had their own ideas of what they wanted to do with their hair/makeup and Laurel made it happen. They all looked absolutely stunning on my wedding day and I couldn't have been more please with my hair and makeup. As great as she is with hair, she's even better with makeup. It's definitely her wheelhouse! I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a professional, talented, sweet hair and/or makeup artist for any event-- especially a wedding. She traveled such a long way for BOTH my hair trial and wedding! She's awesome!

Jaclyn was my makeup vendor for my wedding on December 13, 2014. Jaclyn's professionalism, friendliness, and kind spirit superseded my expectations. I met with two other makeup artists before being blessed to find Jaclyn....I tell you....I didn't know if I would be able to find a makeup artist that would do my makeup the way a bride should look on her wedding day (natural beauty with a glow) instead of someone about to hit the runway or on the movie screen (cakie). Jaclyn did just that. I also had a party of 8 ladies..all of which had varying skin color types as women of color typically have. Jaclyn was timely in applying everyone's makeup, everyone's makeup matched their skin color perfectly and everyone looked so very beautiful. The contouring she did was perfect. She did such a great job that I felt that their were 9 brides instead of just one. :-) The wedding guests and others who have seen our pictures on facebook are still asking about the master mind behind our makeup...people who don't even live in Tennessee are wanting to gain information about our wonderful makeup artist to determine if somehow they can book her. I would recommend Jaclyn 1000 times for any social event and look forward to using her again for any future social events I may have. I loved her!

Absolutely adore Lecia! Her responsiveness, her talent, and her flexibility were amazing! The day of my trial I had asked Lecia to try something different on me as I thought I wanted to look completely different from my normal days. Not only did she accommodate, but when I realized in the end that I may have asked for a bit too drastic, she worked with me to find a great balance in what I was comfortable with but felt amazing in. She is such a delight to be around and makes the whole time you are with her so calming and fun! I would absolutely recommend Lecia and her team to anyone looking for hair and makeup for any event!

I hired Mary Elise to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. i was unsure of what I wanted for my hair so she let me bounce ideas off of her and gave me advice and we decided what we both loved. She did a trial (which is hard to find people to do but I felt I really needed one to feel comfortable) and we discussed any changes I wanted to be made. She made note of the small changes and on my wedding day was it was perfect! I absolutely loved it! She also did my makeup for my wedding which was flawless! She was on time and really had a hand in my wedding not being too stressful! She made this part of the wedding something I really didn't have to worry about! I would absolutely recommend her!

The first time I used Elaina Dilts Makeup was for a modeling job. She was so professional and memorable that when it came time to choose a makeup artist for my wedding, it was a no-brainer. Before the wedding, I asked Elaina to do my makeup for engagement photos. It was a chance for me to check out her bridal makeup skills before committing to a trial run. I immediately set up my trial run and booked her for my wedding. Elaina listened to all of my needs and was well prepared for the trial run. At the run through, she asked questions to ensure everything was up to my standards and suggested things when I was unsure exactly what I wanted. I felt so comfortable with her unique skill set and level of expertise. The morning of the wedding was a bit stressful as most weddings are. The one thing that I did not have to worry about at all was my makeup. Elaina did a fantastic job! She was on time, efficient, caring, and adept. I looked beautiful and it lasted all day and night. I highly recommend Elaina!

    We hired Kristina to do the makeup for a short indie film. She was always on time, listened carefully to what we wanted, and had the skills to create many different looks for our actors. I've also experienced and seen her make-overs directly. She is unlike other makeup artists in style and technique in creating a look that draws attention to the eyes. Exceptional work.

    Kyla did the makeup for my wedding and I was SO happy with it. I'm always worried with makeup because I'm an everyday only mascara girl. She made it so natural and absolutely perfect for my big day. I couldn't recommend her enough, it was just what I wanted, even when I wasn't quite sure what I did want. She did an amazing job.

    Cordnie came in last minute as a wedding makeup artist replacement. Originally I chose a different artist that was a little more well known, but the artist cancelled on me last minute. Cordnie not only quickly found time to do a trial session prior to my wedding date for comfortability, but she was on time, the makeup was flawless, and she worked swiftly enough that people outside of my wedding party were able to buy her services as well before the wedding began. Our makeup lasted from 12 noon until 11pm when the wedding ended. That says a lot about her products. From what I saw, she used mostly Mac, which was comforting for me. I would recommend her to anyone! She went above and beyond, and We couldn't have asked for better.

      I'm a certified makeup artist. It's definitely hard being new in the world because I've started off pretty slow, but it's an experience. I love seeing my clients' reaction after I'm finished with the look.

      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.
