Nicole was prompt and professional but very friendly and good company! She asked a lot of good questions ahead of time to make sure she understood the hair and makeup I wanted, and how they would work with my attire for the evening. Because of that, she was able to work very quickly while still doing a fantastic job and absolutely nailing the look and effect I was going for. I hope to have a reason to hire her again soon!

I had an ongoing MUA for 10 years. When she couldn't make it, I called Bia. She was very open to my wants and adjusted things that I wanted and was very professional. She is super friendly and very talented. I like the total glam look which isn't an amateur task. Bia blew me away with her abilities and being a makeup carnoisseur myself I can personally attest to her work. DO NOT HESITATE to hire her! Grab her now before she moves on to bigger things and more expensive pricing. Yes, she's THAT good. So good, in fact, I'm having her come do my make up once a week from now on. If you want to look on point then this is your girl!! Alicia Hardy

I cannot say enough great things about Inner Beauty and the work Shanae. From the moment I confirmed booking, she was VERY responses and followed up several times to confirm. She spent nearly 90mins on my makeup and make me look like something out of the movies. She was even able to help provide extensions for my girlfriend that really made our Halloween costumes come together perfectly!! She is AWESOME and I will definitely be using her services again next year!!

Tres Unique Beauty Lounge did such an amazing job of glamming up my wedding entourage! I love the owner ToCarra so much! I had so much anxiety when selecting my MUA, partly due to the fact that I live in Dallas and got married in the Austin area. After my first conversation with ToCarra I knew she was the one. I felt like I had know her forever! She was kind, supportive, professional, and so accommodating throughout the entire process. I originally booked ToCarra for makeup services for 8. Literally, days before my wedding I asked ToCarra if she and her team would be able to do hair for my girls. She said yes! She brought in a team of 3 amazing artists who I love just as much as her. My wedding day was much more special, just because they were there. The final count for for both hair and makeup was 10. All of my girls were so happy with their look! We really appreciated the sweet gift bags you gave us, nice touch. Thank you Tres Unique for glamming my squad!

Ana did my hair and makeup for an event and she was absolutely phenomenal! I showed her a picture of how I want my makeup and she did it better than the picture. My hair stayed in place for both day and night festivities. She accommodated me and drove to my place without having to charge a fee and she was so kind! She had all the right makeup tools in case you have sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin etc. - she comes prepared!

Michelle was awesome to work with! She did hair/makeup for my wedding last minute, traveled to us and she did an amazing job on both my friends and I. During my makeup application, she also tweezed a few stray eyebrow hairs (oops!), applied false eyelashes and left a lipgloss so I could retouch my lipstick throughout the night. Seriously, she went above and beyond and she truly helped me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day. We all received so many compliments on how great we looked and we'll definitely find an opportunity to use her again.

Monica does a beautiful job. My sister’s makeup artist backed out at the last minute so I logged onto Thumbtack to search for a new makeup artist. Monica replied within minutes. Monica was very patient with us. We all wanted a different look and she gave us what we requested. My sister’s and I received many compliments throughout the night. Thank you, Monica for coming through at the last minute and helping us make our sister’s day, special.

About

No two faces are the same, no two makeup applications are te same. I understand that some people have personal preferences and that everything isn't meant for everyone. I try to be absolutely honest at all jobs, with that being said, if that hot pink, neon green/ blue/ or even black doesn't look good, imma let you know and NOT let you know. Even if it means me not getting paid

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 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 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.
