Eddie did tile flooring in the master bedroom. He took 6 days to finish the project. He is a hard worker and wants the customer to be satisfied. The time frame to do the work was extended by 2 days, so I would recommend setting a fixed rate for a project like this. The quality of work was good and I would not hesitate to hire him in the future.

Lloyd was extremely professional, not only did he come on a weekend, but he ran around town for almost two hours to find a few parts that would better match our already existing decor. After finishing the door jamb repair, Lloyd also helped repair our trim on the inside that was damaged without charging. He even left us a few materials and instructions on how to finish a separate project. Definitely above and beyond service, price, and professionalism. If I ever need something repaired in the future, I know who I'll call. Thank you Lloyd.

I highly recommend ProCoat to anyone looking for a very professional, skilled painting company. I had the whole interior of our house painted and am very pleased with the outcome as well as the time frame in which it was completed. Miguel the owner of this company has clearly found his calling. In addition, I also had a special "custom room" done.... with a double stripe around the middle of the room, it turned out amazing!! Thank you so much ProCoat for your hard work and great customer service!

I am a little late but I cannot say enough about the experience I had with Ruth! My husband and I eloped and I still wanted to feel beautiful and special on our day. Ruth exceeded my expectations! I had ALOT of things going on, moving from TX to CO plus eloping, getting my make up and hair done was that much easier. Ruth called me and asked for me to send her ideas of what I had wanted done...again I couldn't have been more please and happy with what she did for me! Not to mention she is just so sweet and personable. I would use Ruth for all my hair and make up needs if I could! Words cannot express how happy and easy she made things for me!

Came out when promised and made sure the playground site met my needs before leaving. Looking to use him for outdoor kitchen and fire pit in future. Only reason not 5 stars is one end I have no idea how to block off or contain, I will probably have to call back out for finish or figure out once I select borders. Thank you

Timing on getting a job completed, ranks fairly high when you have a busy schedule. I was needing some painting done on a newly installed bathroom door, prior to a special event that I was having at my house. Andy's timing and willingness to get the job done was outstanding. Do to my work schedule, I have had to change dates a couple of times with Andy. He works around his schedule to make it happen. I haven't mentioned that he is punctual, fairly piced and has a friendly out going personality. I now have Andy coming back to complete another job in a couple of weeks. Thanks for being there Andy!

If there was an option for 10 stars, I'd pick it! Fantastic from start to finish. Mr. Flores and his crew were absolutely top-notch in every regard. They arrived on time, every morning and cleaned up their work area and my home every day before they left. Everyone was polite and professional and were obviously experts in the jobs they were performing....consulting with me and keeping me informed every step of the way. Also, in terms of value and cost, Mr. Flores provided me with a VERY reasonable estimate and, did not attempt to jack up the price or gouge me for something "hidden." I cannot be happier with Mighty Oak! I already have asked them to come back for another small job next week!! Thank you Ronald, Rueben and Rick!!!

I can't say enough good things about Sue. On your special day you want everything to be flawless, your make-up especially. That's exactly what Sue does. Flawless make-up. She helped and guided me with how I wanted to look and what would work best for to all the pictures! I couldn't have been happier! If I could give her 100 stars I would!

Alex installed a 24" and 36" grab bar in ceramic tile of the bath and installed a new shower head. He was on time, very professional and courteous. I'm pleased with his work and price. He also cleaned up the area completely when he finished the job. I recommend you contact Alex as your handyman!

I contacted Thumb tack for so contractors to give me bids on putting in four walls with three doors, and finish the walls. Resurrection put in the lowest bid and was a little concerned about that but, after work was started and finished I was please with the workmanship and definitely and the cost to have the work done. Would recommend Resurrection for any job.

I hired Nelda for my event and could not have been more pleased. She is a joy to work with and I feel like she is part of my family. She went above and beyond what I expected and she truly made my wedding special. My family and I could not stop talking about how awesome Nelda is and how she made my day so perfect. I would recommend her to anyone. You will not be disappointed!

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.
