Nicole did my sisters makeup for prom and she was absolutely beautiful. Her skin looked flawless and Nicole stayed true to the picture we had for inspiration. She knew exactly what she was doing and you could tell she has been doing this for a long time. She was always prompt when communicating about all the details. We are definitely going to hire her for all our formal events! Thanks again for making her look even more beautiful.

I got my makeup done for my prom. I wanted a natural look with bold lips and ToCarra gave me exactly what I was looking for. I'm not a person that normally wears makeup, so I was amazed at how much I still looked like myself even with makeup. I absolutely loved it and will be using her again from my graduation. Thank you again ToCarra.

She did an amazing job. She was on time, very efficient and I loved my bridal party and my makeup. Received compliments all night. The plus side was it wasn’t difficult to remove at the end of the night either but my face stayed flawless the entire time

Noemi did a great job of listening to the concerns and ideas that I had for my prom makeup. She encouraged me to get a little outside of my comfort zone and the results were excellent! I loved my look and would definitely recommend her services.

Mary is amazing! We did a trial run because I don't usually wear very much makeup and I was hesitant about it. I was so impressed with her work and her personality was definitely a plus. She did my hair and makeup for bridal portraits and her staff did hair & makeup for 11 people for my wedding including me. We got so many compliments and my husband still is talking about how much he loved my makeup. He said I looked breathtakingly gorgeous! Mary and her staff are the best :).

Tamala was very attentive to my needs. (I am extremely difficult at times and very picky). I don't wear much makeup and have been known to wipe it off. Tamala made me look really natural and I received compliments all evening about my makeup.She also did makeup on my 14 year old who is very prone to acne, she made her completion look very smooth and her makeup was very natural.

Ana did my wedding hair and makeup.She was absolutely great to work with. Before i scheduled my trial makeup/hair with her, i had tried other highly rated artists through weddingwire and i was not happy with the trials. The best thing i loved about Ana was that she was patient enough to first understand your taste and then work with you to create your own style.She did absolutely amazing for my wedding makeup and hair and i highly recommend her.

This was the first time we have hired someone to do my middle daughter’s makeup. She is so picky and particular with her makeup that doing it on her own was best, but this weekend she decided to give someone a chance and we found Chibbi and he did not disappoint! He was punctual, professional and the quality of his work was amazing! When I asked how she liked it she said she loved it and I responded by saying it is a miracle and she responded with....No, he is a miracle! Truly he is, he pleased a 17 Year Old Makeup perfectionist and that is no easy task....She can’t wait until Prom to get her friends together and get Chibbi to have a Prom Makeup Party! Highly Recommend!!!!

I’m so glad I found Jessika during my very last minute search for a makeup artist for my wedding. First of all, her personality is amazing and all my bridesmaids could not stop bragging about her. Second, she asked and listened to my preferences during my trial and it reflected well on my wedding day after seeing my final look. My girls were impressed by how everything turned out as well.. and that was one of the things I was worried about. Lastly, with the quality of work Jessika provided, her services were affordable and worth every penny. Thank you for your lovely work, Jessika! It was a pleasure meeting you and we hope to work with you again soon! — Theresa

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!

Jennifer was awesome! She was very professional and did such a wonderful job with my niece in getting her ready for prom.Makeup was beautiful and flawless and her hair turned out exactly the way she asked. Jennifer was also very accommodating in that we switched our appt times on her at the last minute. Jennifer really "glammed" it up and gave that little something to make my niece's prom nite special. Thank you, Jennifer!

Suzanne is a superb makeup artist! She considered many things when deciding on colors and asked lots of questions to ensure she used the right makeup. The airbrush looked amazing, made my skin look flawless! The eye makeup complimented my blue eyes beautifully. I couldn't be happier with the result and highly recommend her!!!

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!

I will highly recommend everyone to hire her!! Thanks lea

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
