Dawn, Dawn, Dawn!!! Amazing and very talented. You can tell she loves what she does. She is very patient, attentive and honest. Dawn was a gift from my girlfriend Betty who I can't thank enough. I was very stressed and I was over trying to find a makeup artist to can work with darker skin complexions. Well, Betty worked her magic and gave me Dawn last minute. Day of my trial, first thing I noticed was that Dawn washed her hands prior to touching my face. At that very moment I knew she was going to be my makeup artist. She gave me skin care advice and products to use on my skin up until the wedding. Where they do that at????!! To top it off Dawn drove to Galveston Texas for light light light bridal makeup, whereas any other makeup artist would have told me I'm wasting their time. She worked with me to perfect the look I wanted day of. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I can't boost enough about her quality of work! If you are looking for a makeup artist I truly and definitely recommend Dawn. She is the truth!!!! My pictures prove the type of work she can do!

I contacted Leslie for a makeup lesson. She responded immediately with her availability. She asked me a few questions to see what I was hoping to learn. I explained that I felt like as I age I wasn't equipped with the proper techniques to apply makeup to correct the changes I'm not thrilled about and enhance the features I do like. My lesson was yesterday and Leslie arrived promptly with makeup case in tow, fully loaded and ready to go. She was so patient with me, she went through the makeup and brushes I already owned and told me which items were useful and, pointed out products that I didn't have that I may want to invest in. The great thing about this was I knew Leslie had nothing to gain by suggesting a brush or makeup item. She didn't care who or where I bought the items from. She also pointed me to quality products at reasonable prices in case I didn't want to spend a fortune trying to apply my makeup. When a product really mattered she told me it's worth the investment. Many times when I go to cosmetic stores / beauty supply stores I feel like there are always vendors there pushing their product and the sales people are too. I often wonder if they truly think those products are best for me or if they have something to gain by making the sale. She allowed me time to jot down notes as she taught me how to apply my makeup and she gave me great explanations as to why she goes in the order she does and anatomical landmarks to follow when I'm doing this myself. The finished product was more than I could have asked for. I don't usually walk around looking in the mirror but to be honest I couldn't help myself, I felt fantastic! I think every novice and those needing refreshers would definitely benefit from a class with Leslie!

    Angela was great, this was my first time using thumbtack and so grateful to have found her ta the last minute for my engagement photoshoot. She listened to what I wanted and what look I was going for, and the makeup was amazing. I didn't want to take it off at the end of the day. My friends have asked and I would recommend her to any of my friends and anyone else.

    I would like to brag on how pretty my wife looked when she walked in the other day. I have seen her plenty of times over the years made up, but this time I could really tell she Loved her new look just by how she wanted me to start taking pictures to capture her look. Great job and she found her permanent beauty stop!👍😀

      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.
