Having Linda do my makeup for my wedding was wonderful! She was on time to the minute , made me relax and feel at ease, and did a beautiful job. I looked great when she finished and it lasted all day. She finished with me at 8 in the morning and it still looked fresh and beautiful when I removed it at 10 that night. I would definately recommend her for your special occasion!

Darling did my makeup for an outdoor wedding in November in Texas. I never really wear a full face of makeup and hardly wear eyeshadow. Darling did the perfect shadow and wing that fit my face perfectly! I have an oily T zone and did not have to touch up with powder once from being outside all night. She is professional, so sweet and a great makeup artist!

Lara Toman was so sweet and supportive with my preferences for my bridal group! I met Katherine (forgive me if I misspelled her name) during my makeup trial, and she did a fantastic job on blending my acne-prone skin with naturally subtle but noticeable colors. I was disappointed that she wasn't there on my wedding day when confirmed she'll be there, but Lara ended up doing my makeup and she didn't disappoint! Basically there were 2 hairstylists and 1 makeup artist there all ready to go. The makeup crew was very patient with my mother, who is, as much as I love her, can be hard to please at times so she had her makeup "tweaked" three times. Plus an unfortunate event happened right before the wedding, so my mother was being discouraging WHILE I was getting my makeup and hair done. Thankfully, Lara and her team were very encouraging throughout my session. They even stayed longer than they should've. That meant so much to me, because my night was amazing from there onward. I highly recommend going with Empire Faces for wedding events. Our makeup came out great in our professional photos!

I really appreciated the time she took to explain the product and how to apply on my face/skin. I found Corey to be very knowledgable as a makeup artist. I have been to others who seem to just about the sale than to take the time to show me what I need to enhance my face. Thank you for making my anniversary so special. It's Royer

I am so happy that I hired Irina for my wedding hair and make up. I had a make up trial and consult with Irina before the wedding and decided to hire her right then. I canceled my other make up trials and I am so glad I did that. I had a crazy wedding day with two events on the same day for which I had requested two different hairstyles and slightly different eye make up. Irina delivered exactly what I had asked for. She also did hair for three other people. She worked really fast without compromising on quality. Her prices are very reasonable - so much so that I was a little hesitant at first because I thought that surely her rates would be higher if she was any good. But boy was I wrong! She was very responsive from the time I hired her to the day of my wedding discussing different potential hairstyles for all of the people whose hair she was working on. I had asked her to show up at 7 am at my apartment and she was pretty much on time and didn’t leave until 4 pm. At times she was my only company on my wedding day and it was nice to have her around.

Jen is such an amazing artist and I hired her for my bridal portraits and my wedding makeup. I could not believe how stunning and natural she made me look. She is a true artist in her craft and is more than reasonably priced. If you are looking for someone to do your wedding makeup, makeup for a photoshoot or anything else - you MUST HIRE JEN! She will take care of you. As a hairstylist myself, she will be my number one makeup artist I recommend in Houston and nearby places. Thanks Jen for helping make my special day PERFECT!!!

Sandra gave me a makeup tutorial that covered a progression of makeup techniques from daily wear to a night out. Leading up to the appointment she confirmed and was easy to reach. She arrived on time and well equipped with lighting and makeup. She was very patient and kind, taught me correct application methods, and explained various tips to correct my application errors. She used a combination of my products and hers and made economical product recommendations for items I did not have. She did not rush through the lesson and made me feel very comfortable practicing techniques. I highly recommend Sandra if you want learn about makeup application and/or if you want a professional makeup artist for a special event.

Christine showed up on time, had her regular makeup and airbrush makeup tools to ensure all requests were met. Good product quality. She is a very sweet and friendly woman who was able to stay focused and keep a calm and professional demeanour regardless of the loud crowd around her. She was kind enough to offer to come back for touchups if needed prior to the wedding ceremony. I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to look and feel good :)

Christine did a fantastic job with my wedding makeup. I did my trial with her before my rehearsal dinner, and she did a great job with my whole family swirling around. She kept her cool, was incredibly professional and friendly, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She was attentive to my preferences and did an amazing job, and her price for the quality of work she does is great. If you're looking for someone who's flexible, attentive to her customers, talented and efficient, then hire Christine!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.
