Makeup by Tashi

Paula M.
Verified review

Tashi showed up on time to the booking, she came well prepped and very professional. While doing my makeup, she ensured I was comfortable and she gave me the exact look that I picked out of pictures. We were in a rush because my time to leave did change, but my makeup turned out flawless. I got compliments all night and my makeup stayed intact the entire night. I would definitely recommend Tashi and have found my personal makeup artist!

Out of all the make up artists that reached out to me she was the BEST and your prices are more than reasonable. She's very sweet and extremely professional. She has always been responsive, flexible, and patient. I had two make up trials and one hair trial before my wedding day. She worked with me to ensure I was completely satisfied with the look I wanted. I also had her do a make up trial on my mother as well as the wedding day and mother looked AMAZING! She loved how she looked and the way the make up felt on her face. Alexanderia is personable and caring. She goes above and beyond and her work speaks for itself. I can't forget to mention she helped me and my mom learn more about make up products and how to apply everything. Bottom line: She's the best and you'll regret it if you pass her up. :)

Sarah is a wonderful makeup artist. Sarah was able to match my skin tone perfectly! That's a hard tasks because I have undertones of red in my skin. Sarah suggested cleaning solutions and toners for my skin type. Sarah is extremely patient and made me feel very special. I absolutely love her personality and friendly demeanor. I endorse her 100 percent!

Jessica Hoffman is definitely a hair artist! She can see what hair style fits a person just by looking at them. She knows what she's doing, listens well to what you want, and can work you in whenever it's possible. She's fantastic with hair color and with the keratin treatments.She's the only one I trust with my hair!

I have been a client of Clarena's on several occasions. She was able to do so many different looks on me that were all amazing and taught me a lot about makeup and what works for me. She really knows her stuff. She is professional, sanitary and makes sure you leave her chair 100% satisfied with your look and experience. I have seen her work magic on women of pretty much every skin color and type. In my opinion, don't waste your time and money going to another makeup artist. She is the best, hands down.

    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.
