Ronee is a professional and sweet makeup artist and hair stylist. It's clear that she loves what she does! She was early on my wedding day and stayed right on schedule. She was able to finish all 6 of my bridesmaids hair and/or makeup and finished off with my bridal makeup and hair in a timely manner. She wasted no time and listened carefully to what each of us wanted. Definitely recommend! :)

Ruth is a true professional. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to make-up techniques and latest trends. She made me feel at ease and created a look that was stunning without using too much make-up per my request. She enhanced my natural features and suggested a color palette that really went well together with my skin tone and outfit. I was very pleased with the final result. My make-up looked amazing in our family photos too and I received lots of compliments. I highly recommend Ruth as a makeup artist.You will not be disappointed and will be contacting her anytime you want to look your best!

I just don't have enough good things to say about Tammi. She was easy to communicate with and very responsive when trying to hire and schedule. I was able to consult with her for my lesson within just a few days of hiring her. She was punctual, professional, pleasant and came completely prepared for my lesson. She taught me step by step how to create the make-up look I was looking for, explained the techniques to me and made sure I understood them, and and explained what each product she used was for. She did not try to sell me any makeup - she simply showed me how to use what she had brought with her. She also advised me on the makeup I currently had and whether it was sufficient to obtain the look I was seeking. She followed up that day by sending me an email detailing every step of our lesson, along with the list of products of she had used, and many links to obtain those products, should I choose to use them. This was my first Thumbtack experience - and it was superb! I HIGHLY recommend this makeup artist! :)

She is absolutely amazing!!! I would recommend her to anybody who need a makeup artist. She was very punctual, she showed up at the time she said she would. Which is very important because I hate when people are late and she wasn't. Her communication was great and she really wanted to understand my vision for my fashion photoshoot. She really understood what I was wanting with the photos I sent her. When she arrived I didn't say anything to her specific to the make up. I just let her do her thing and she did the makeup spot on to what I wanted. All in all she was very professional, sweet, high quality work and her response time was almost immediate. I will definitely use her again!

Annalisa R. is AMAZING!!! Not only is she talented but she gave me exactly what I wanted for my birthday look! I got so many compliments about my makeup that night and it all stayed in place till I had enough of my fun. She was very nice, made sure to ask me what I wanted, and made me comfortable about the look before we started. As I have stated before the end product was just great and love that she is not scared to play with any colors!( this is important to me because a true makeup artist doesn’t have just one look they can do all) I will continue to go to her for any event I have in the future and would highly recommend this beautiful gal!

Liz is by far the most talented makeup artist I've been to! She works with your features and I LOVE the way she enhances the eyebrows, eyes and skin tone to look polished and elegant. I've gone to her for both Brides maid and Gala makeup and up-dos. Both times everyone complimented my make up and hair 😍😍😍😍

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.
