I can not say enough about this girl! First of all, my daughter used her & her crew to do her & her bridesmaids makeup in October, after having learning about her, and let me say----they did an absolutely amazing job! Everyone loved their look and their pictures are amazing! She took everything into consideration, including the lighting the girls would be in, and all. She really knows what she is doing! But now I want to take it to another level. What took this WAY over the top for me, was my own personal experiences. I have used her 3 times now, and she is phenomenal! I am older, so I am alot more self conscious about my looks and had some very specific goals and "target areas" I wanted to address with her. (I buy high quality makeup, have had my makeup done before, and have stayed up with application etc, but still had some areas I was just never quite satisfied with the results in certain areas when it came to my own application. I say this only to emphasize that I was not clueless when I came in.) That being said--- I can't even begin to describe what a true make up ARTIST she is, and what she did for me. She also really LISTENED, and really honed in on the areas that were my biggest concerns. She took her time with me, did her thing...and honestly....I never dreamed she could make me look so good!!!! The other thing about her that impressed me is that she really worked with our schedule to be able to accommodate me each time, and was very organized, thorough, knowledgeable, reliable. All of these things together just knocked it out of the park for me. I even live out of town (several hours away), but it was so worth the drive, to get to her!!!!!!

Nicole was amazing and did a terrific job with my make up. She was patient, had me send her pictures of my outfit in advance, made sure I saw and liked all the colors she was going to use and was incredibly kind patient when I wanted things changed as he was putting on my make up. She also did my hair. I would recommend her highly to anyone that wants a professional, patient and talented make-up artist.

Ana did my wedding hair and makeup.She was absolutely great to work with. Before i scheduled my trial makeup/hair with her, i had tried other highly rated artists through weddingwire and i was not happy with the trials. The best thing i loved about Ana was that she was patient enough to first understand your taste and then work with you to create your own style.She did absolutely amazing for my wedding makeup and hair and i highly recommend her.

What can I say... this woman is pure GOLD! I was hesitant about getting my makeup done for my wedding because I didn’t want to look overdone or unnatural but I went through with it hoping for the best. Jessika was extremely responsive, sweet and accommodating leading up to my big day, and when I met her I instantly knew that, at the very least, she’d be my forever girl crush. She has such a bright, infectious energy about her that made all of us gals feel so at ease- she’s just plain FUN- and that counted for so much since I spent the first half of my wedding day with her. As for make-up, you won’t find anyone better! Just trust me. I have never felt so beautiful, and my bridal party agreed that she was the best [make-up artist] they’d ever had. She did a flawless job, and it lasted for hours without needing any retouching! My only regret is that I couldn’t fit her in my pocket and take her home. Get this woman in your life- she’s good for the soul. And your face.

Yarie did my makeup using the airbrush technique and I was impressed with how smooth it made my skin look without being overly made up. She has a real artist's eye for bringing out your best features. She was very professional, on time and efficient. I liked that all her tools and brushes were clean and organized. It was a good experience.

I had a great experience with Fire Blossom Beauty! I've never gotten my hair and makeup done professionally (and I hardly know what i'm doing when it comes to makeup) so I was very happy when I met Michelle who is very down to earth and didn't make me feel like I was asking dumb questions. I wasn't sure what I wanted but she was very patient with me and explained the different techniques. Since I was getting hair and makeup done for my wedding, I was of course semi-stressed out about the end product. I scheduled a practice run with Michelle about a month before my wedding and this definitely eased my stress about how I would look on my wedding day. I was very confident that I would be in good hands! She was also very quick to respond to my messages. On the day of my wedding she arrived early to our appointment so that she could set things up and get started sooner. I'm glad she did this because I am usually a stickler about getting somewhere on time. It definitely helped to take away some of my stress. An overall great experience and you can't beat the price! My hair and makeup remained intact through the entire wedding and even through partying on 6th street until 2AM!

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.

I got married almost 2 years ago and this woman helped me so much!! She used all natural products and did my hair and make up before my wedding! I can't say I got what I was expecting because it was SOOOO much more then what I could have ever hoped for!! She is amazing!! Another thing I really enjoyed is she was so positive!! I wouldn't rather have anyone else!!

The lessons I had with Anna were extremely helpful. I was able to figure out what I was doing wrong with my makeup application. I had wanted to improve my under-eye concealer and blush technique, but picked up that and much more. She is knowledgeable about all skin tones (I am African American) and how to enhance what you have. I highly recommend her whether you are new to makeup or just want to improve.

I recently booked Melissa as my MUA for my upcoming wedding. Although my wedding isn't until May, I've already had a trial run with her for my engagement photos and it went great! I was cautious at first because I wanted to make sure that she would use the right shades and products on my dark skin tone, but Melissa quickly eased my worries. I received so many compliments on how well my makeup blended in with my natural skin tone! She really listened to what I wanted and provided helpful information about the products she used and what she was doing during each phase. Not only did she do a great job on the trial run, she also recommended me to another great MUA when I had to re-schedule my photo shoot for another date and she wasn't available. She even went the extra mile, by telling the other artist each product she used on my skin! I can't wait to use Melissa again for my wedding!

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.
