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.

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.

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.

Was a wonderful experience- make up was AMAZING. Everyone who saw it commented on how amazing it looked. The only downside was the hair was $60 and at first looked amazing but within an hour was flat. That being said I would go back for makeup again and again! Farah is an artist.

Michelle was absolutely incredible! The wedding makeup she did for me was everything I wanted and more. Michelle had used airbrush foundation which gave me a flawless and soft complexion in all my wedding photos and the eye makeup was exactly the right amount of color and warmth I wanted to add to my eyes. I got countless amounts of compliments on how my makeup looked on my wedding day and it's all thank to Michelle. She was both helpful and supportive throughout the whole process in creating my makeup look and hair styling. We did a trial beforehand and she was even able to travel to my wedding venue to provide both the hair and makeup services for my wedding day (August 2019). It was a stress free process and I do not regret hiring her at all. She was well worth the price for her services and her prices are both affordable and reasonable. Her skills are also versatile to give you both a natural or bold look depending on what you want. Aside from her talent as a makeup artist her personality is also both calming for an anxious bride and she is just warm and kind in nature. I found it incredibly comforting to have such a professional makeup artist there on my big day. I highly recommend Michelle. Thank you for making me look my very best on my big day!

Michelle was fantastic! I used her hair and makeup services for my wedding. I had 3 sessions with her which included 1 trial, 1 photo shoot day, and 1 wedding day. On my wedding day she also provided hair and makeup for my maid of honor. Michelle is a talented hair and makeup artist. She was on time, extremely friendly and outgoing, and very accommodating. All of her cosmetic products came off so easily at the end of the night too! She definitely provided the best deal I found on Thumbtack and elsewhere on the internet. Would highly recommend! Thank you Michelle!!!

Noemi was the best! She was punctual, took into account all my preferences, and was extremely accommodating. She is an artist with makeup and hair and made me look stunning on my wedding day. She also reduced the wedding day stress and anxiety with cool music tunes that helped me relax. I would highly recommend Noemi. She's a true professional!
