Jessie came to my three-year-old daughter's birthday party to do face painting for her and her friends. She was professional, on time, and did an amazing job! We would absolutely hire her again for a future event, and even for Halloween makeup! Thank you Jessie.

Ashlie was the makeup artist for my wedding, bridals, engagement photos and commercial and I was so pleased every single time! Even if I were to use the same tools and makeup she did, I would not be able to make the outcome the same. The quality of blending, highlighting and color selection is so intuitive to her. She has a passion and a knack for makeup and I would recommend her to everyone!

Alair is amazing! She was pleasant and wonderful while doing my hair and makeup even under the stress everyone else was experiencing getting ready for the wedding. My makeup stayed beautiful all night and only needed a little additional lip color here and there. I definitely recommend Alair.

I'm so glad I found Jessica. I needed my makeup done for a filming project. She was so kind to accept my almost last-minute request and did a beautiful job. I especially enjoyed getting to know her within the short time we worked together. She's so genuine and wonderful; I wonder where she'd been all my life. Jessica works wonders, and I'd definitely recommend her to everyone who needs a makeup artist.

Rachel did an amazing job with the hair & makeup for our product photo shoot. She even brought one of the models who was excellent and very professional. I sent Rachel some hair and makeup ideas I had in mind for the shoot and she executed everything flawlessly. Not only did she show up right on time and was professional, she had a great personality and was fun to work with. I will definitely be calling Rachel again for my next photo shoot! Thank you Rachel!

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!

Natalie did my wedding makeup. I paid for the trial run and the wedding day airbrush application. She did an absolutely wonderful job. After the trial, I only had a couple of changes that I wanted. She executed them perfectly and I looked exactly as I had wanted to look (actually - even better). The only thing I wish she would have done differently is bring more business cards - everyone wanted to have her for their wedding! Thank you, Natalie.

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 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.
