The thing that made me choose Tiffany over all the other makeup artists on this site was her 1 negative review (145 positive reviews). Most people don’t even respond to negative reviews but Tiffany responded, explained what happened, apologized and offered her services to this client in the future. That really won me over. I live about an hour and 15 minutes+ from Tiffany. She booked a hotel room in my city the night before just so that should could make sure that she arrived on time for my special day! She was 5 minutes early. I’m sure the hotel room cost just as much as her very reasonable price for the services she provided which means she cares more about growing her brand than profit. I do not wear makeup at all and didn’t want heavy makeup. Tiffany went over everything with me and gave me the look I desired. She also brought her own chair and lighting which I thought was amazing. She was very professional and friendly and she has a client for life. I will refer her to all my friends and anyone who asks. Thank you so much Tiffany for helping make my day amazing!

Felice is so easy to communicate with! She makes sure she'll be prepared to come in for a trial run. She's asked me what kind of look I'm going for and she seemed very confident she'll be able to deliver. I'm not a makeup person so I feel scared of the cakey look or having-too-much-makeup-look. She rests assured that whatever it is that I want will be delivered in a tasteful way. Also, since she lives in the same town as I am (Rowlett), she didn't charge me travel fee! How awesome is that! Her pricing is VERY reasonable and VERY affordable. I've looked online using wedding planner websites and I have friends who are makeup artists and charge twice as much, even their trial runs, in my opinion, are very pricey (around $80). Felice, however, doesn't charge trial run if you're the bride. $10 trial run if you're a bridesmaid or guest. She's able to keep her trial run affordable if she can have multiple trials in one appointment at the same location. I have a bridal makeup trial run coming up this weekend. I've only communicated with her through phone and I can already tell that making sure I am very well taken care of is a priority. I can't wait to meet her and feel confidently beautiful on my wedding day!

I absolutely loved my makeup and hair with Candace! I've been through many makeup artists in the process of wedding photography, and Candace was by far my absolute favorite. I'm rarely impressed with people, so this was great. To expand on why I was happy, I'll explain the major factors that drive my opinion. First, Candace was responsive to my needs and experienced enough to actually work with my thick, fluffy Indian hair! Second, she actually spent a great deal of time going through the Pinterest photos I sent her and created my look accordingly. Third, she was willing to travel to me and start at 5:30 am to accommodate my ridiculous time schedule for photos in Atlanta. Fourth, she knows makeup: she has a collection of the best, high end make up products--I spend so much time and effort on my daily makeup regimen, so I wanted an expert, not someone claiming to be an expert. Several others who gave me quotes didn't even know the brand Urban Decay, which is ridiculous for a makeup artist! Fifth, she is the first person to know how to tease my hair even better than I could--no one has done my hair to my liking before! In addition to all this, her warm, bright personality and ability to relate to anyone make her a charming professional to spend 2 hours with. I couldn't be happier and will be coming to her for all future needs.

This Ms. Monday!! Where do I begin? Just wonderful!!! I swear, everytime I think about her and how she added to the "complete" feeling she gave me on my Wedding Day, I just want to burst out in tears. She was professional, really funny, and all over nice! I cannot wait for my wedding photos to come back. I know the makeup application will translate well into photos! I wish I could steal her and keep her in my pocket so she would forever be with me instead of in my memories! Great MAC application. If you're looking for a makeup artist, choose Latonia Monday!

Jenn was amazing! She is timely, professional, incredibly talented and so sweet. She did all 5 of my bridesmaids hair in 2 hours. There were a variety of styles, updos and down. They all looked beautiful. If that wasn't enough, when my makeup artist was struggling with my false eyelashes, Jenn jumped in a saved the day with some of her own. Did I mention that morning before making my bridal party gorgeous, she worked her magic on the Dallas Stars Cheerleaders for their calendar shoot? So cool. Maybe I'm gushing, but she deserves it. Hire this girl, she's the best and I can't say enough good things about her!

So glad I chose Rafaela for my photoshoot. She was able to accommodate me last minute when the artist my photographer hired fell through. My makeup was perfect for the camera and stayed put the whole time.

Where do i start?! Jasmine was beyond my expectations, i asked for soft and romantic and she made me feel so beautiful! She prepped my skin so well before the glam and my skin was loving all the products she was putting on my skin! It’s like you are getting a skin therapist and a makeup artist all in one! She definitely knows what she is doing and i would recommend her for soft look and bold looks as well she can do it all! Not only that she has a great personality that makes you feel very confident in her work ethic and her overall performance as a makeup artist!

I have to tell ya, after reading the previous reviews before mine.... I feel so proud to call lauren my makeup artist. I found her way back when she was working for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, I came as a random mom who just needed to be shown how to refresh my looking. I was assigned to Lauren, and she’s been more than just a makeup artist to me from that day forward. Not only did she do my wedding makeup a few months ago when I had a destination wedding in Miami..... but she also started doing my lash extensions here is Dallas. You can’t trust just anyone to work so closely to your eyes, it’s such a high risk! But lauren is a professional and certified in everything she does. You can tell this young woman has passion beyond belief. You will certainly love her! She’s the right choice for you!

I have never had the best experiences getting makeup done by other artists, so for prom I really wanted it to be done well. Misha's responsiveness to every detail of my face, her patience in understanding what I wanted, and her execution of it was beyond amazing! The best part about having your makeup done by Misha is that rather than transforming your face into someone else by bombarding your skin with 100 different products, she flawlessly accentuates your natural features with products she knows would best suit your skin. Overall, very pleased with my experience with Misha. Her work is absolutely stunning!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
