Marisa did my makeup for my wedding on October 11. Upon her arrival, I was dealing with a stressful situation (last min wedding prep problems), so I was very tense and frustrated. I feel terrible that Marisa had to hear my frustrations. However, Marisa was completely reassuring and laid back on that day, so once we started my makeup application I felt much better. My makeup looked absolutely amazing. I felt truly beautiful and like a princess on my wedding day. My makeup has never looked as good as it did that day. I received so many compliments. Many family members and friends said I looked like a model:) My mother also had her makeup done that day and she felt beautiful. My mother told me she received lots of compliments as well. I am so glad I chose Marisa for my makeup artist on my wedding day. She is the best in her field!!! I highly recommend her for any special event!!!!

Nicole was the perfect choice for my wedding makeup. She traveled to my home for the pre-trial and helped me choose the best look that would work with my wedding dress. She gave suggestions but also listened to what I wanted. On the day of the event, she was calm and professional. My photographer even commented that Nicole was faster than most other makeup artists she had seen at weddings. Thank you, Nicole!

OK. Bia is one of the most professional makeup artists I have ever met. Not only is she wonderful at what she does, but also listens to her client. Her makeup arsenal is filled with products that look amazing on skin. I am usually hesitant when a makeup artists does my foundation and brows, but Bia's expertise allows her to never make mistakes. She did me and my sister's prom makeup (pics included!) and everyone kept asking who did it! They marveled at how glowy my face was and the precision of my brows. Overall, I HIGHLY URGE anyone and everyone to HIRE BIA. Don't regret not allowing her to do your makeup.... Thanks Bia and my sister and I love you!

Wow! What life savers lol! Let me tell you guys that without these ladies I would've been so lost. As a new bride to be I was really overwhelmed with the many hair options out there....*sigh* I mean, hair up? down? side? WHAT! I had so many other things to plan that this at the time wasn't even a priority. I found Tres Unique Beauty Lounge a few weeks before my wedding date. I was afraid the the last minute planning on my part would be a problem but ToCarra (owner) was very nice, sweet, and most important understanding. There was no speech about the proximity of my wedding date or the inability to secure a wedding day or time with her. She was very flexible and relieved my stress. I went to the pre-trial to secure a look for hair and makeup. The hair/makeup artist she paired me up with Alex was very nice and man! she can work a contour and eye shadow like no other! lol! I did make some changes in between the pre-trial and wedding , they flexed without a problem. They (Alex and Shelby) arrived at the reception site before I even got there and made the tension of the day , at least for that part, disappear. They used quality makeup and were very supportive. My maid of honor that was worked on by Shelby looked absolutely beautiful! She color matched her perfectly, even after the last minute add on I needed for her. Alex definitely gave me a beautiful face for my wedding day. As my now husband said " Your makeup isn't dull or boring, it definitely has character! You are beautiful" .Compliments from everyone at the wedding and I'm looking forward to looking at my wedding pictures to show off the magic she created. Overall, I recommend these ladies to anyone who needs a makeup/hairstylist for any occasion. They are very professional, flexible, dependable and best of all, a comfort to those of us brides to be who need a lil TLC in the process... Thank you ladies, I am truly grateful.

I was overwhelming pleased with Yomakeup! I had a makeup artist cancel at the last minute for my wedding and Jessika saved me! Everyone commented on the whole night how wonderful all of our makeup was done. If I ever have another event or need to have my makeup done she will be my first call. She will also be my recommendation to anyone that asks.

I am a wedding photographer. I have photographed hundreds of weddings in the past 15 years. Because of this I know that cameras will pick up any sort of makeup disaster, badly applied foundation or miss applied lipstick! One thing that I was worried about is the caking eye makeup that is a surefire way to highlight every fine line and wrinkle. Even brides with no visible wrinkles end up with these lines from makeup quit often. Yarie was amazing and my makeup did not cake, my foundation did not slid down my face, leave lines or smudge all night. It was also not over done. I loved it and her. I will recommend her to all of my brides and to anyone else looking for Makeup Artistry!

Haley provides on-site wedding services for the bride, bridesmaids, mother of the bride. She arrives early and sets up her mobile salon station in the bridal suite. She did a fabulous updo for the bride and also does flawless airbrush makeup. The bride was picture perfect throughout the entire celebration with temperatures in the high 90's during the outdoor ceremony. Haley is very friendly and does beautiful professional hair and makeup. We have asked her to be our preferred hairstylist and makeup artist. She is in my opinion the best in town for special event hair and makeup. Some of our brides have also used her airbrush tanning service a couple of days before the wedding and it looks natural and never orange. We highly recommend her and refer all of her services to our customers and Brides.

      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.
