I really enjoyed working with Jess!! She was so much fun and so personable with everyone, and I loved the end result. She did makeup for me and my bridal party and it all looked so gorgeous. I would say the only issue is that she was running late due to some navigation issues, which wasn't really her fault. I know the last couple girls were really rushed through because of the limited time, but she definitely did the best she could with the time she had and everything worked out okay!

Bea did my makeup for a photo shoot. She did an amazing job, was friendly, reasonably priced, and just plain fun to work with. My pics look amazing. I would definitely use her again, and/or recommend her to anyone looking for a professional makeup artist.

While planning my weddng, I got ill and exhausted from a bug. The last week before our wedding, my desire to have my hair and makeup done so I could feel like a "princess" was at the top of my list. I googled and searched online, had a great experience with thumbtack for hiring our wedding photographer so I felt I could trust this method again. Sharlene was awesome in responding right away, offered me an exceptional price and provided me with above and beyond service. Not only was my consult perfect, ( I highly recommend this) but Sharlene drove to my home early am on a Saturday so I could be sealed in the salt lake temple and be on time. Hair, extensions, lashes, makeup all done exceptional. Not only did I look like a princess I felt it!!!!! Will use Sharlene again, have no hesitation in recommending her, and am so thankful for thumbtack for offering exceptional professional services and talented people! Bella Huntsman Bountiful Utah

Natalie was so awesome!! She did my makeup perfectly for my sons wedding. My mom, sister and niece thought I looked so beautiful, they then wanted their makeup done by Natalie and she was kind enough to do all their makeup too. We all looked fabulous!! She was very professional, did a great job and put up with our pre-wedding nerves. I will definitely hire her again!!!

I hired Alair to do my makeup for my wedding. She was willing to come to my house, which made it so much easier for me. Unfortunately the person I had lined up to do my hair wasn't able to do it at the last minute, but Alair saved the day! Not only did my makeup look absolutely stunning, she did a wonderful job on my hair too! I felt and looked so pretty, and I can't thank Alair enough for making my wedding day everything I'd hoped it would be. I would not hesitate recommending her for any event - you won't regret it!

Natasha is a makeup guru! She knows what works for your skin tone and skin type! I’ve always had trouble making my eyes pop! But Natasha made my eyes brighten and taught me quick tips that I didn’t know existed! I also never really could nail a good contour, Natasha knows where to contour right. She was professional and used her time effectively. 10/10 for her!

Just utilized the services this past weekend of the "amazing" Miss Sara Maselli! She was awesome! The event was a Sweet 16 for my daughter. Both she and I do not normally wear makeup. She kept us glamorous, yet natural, and communicated to us throughout the entire experience! She listens, creates, and is extremely passionate about her area of artistry! I would hire her again and again! Feel so fortunate to have found such a jewel! Thank you, Sarah!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
