Jen and her team were amazing to work with. Not only did she make sure that I got exactly what I wanted for my bridal makeup and hair, but she truly cared how things were going and checked in with me throughout the process. Jen has a great sense of humor and is super approachable and knowledgeable. She took care of me and my bridesmaids and kept us laughing the whole time. The girls' hair looked amazing and I couldn't have been happier with my look. Amazing service for the price.

Karla did a wonderful job on the makeup for my wedding. She arrived on time and did my bridal makeup and the makeup of two others in my wedding party. She got us all ready in plenty of time for the event. She is friendly and easy-going. I thought her prices were very reasonable for the service she offers.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jayde this Sunday for my bridal makeup trial! She was so much fun, engaging and very educative on the tools and types of products she uses. The most makeup I ever wear is shadow and mascara; but once she finished with me, I felt like a super model. :-) The makeup stayed on flawlessly all day and removal was very easy. I can't wait for to be glammed up again on my wedding day!!

Loved having Esha do my bridal makeup, as well as my mom's makeup, and some of my bridesmaids. She's so sweet and professional and knows what she's doing. Her makeup skills are phenomenonal and makes her clients feel like princesses! I asked her to change a few simple things after the trial, and she was totally willing to do so. Everyone was very happy with their makeup, and I got so many compliments. It was so helpful having Esha come to my venue...made it a very relaxing morning getting ready. I would highly recommend Esha for wedding makeup!

Being a makeup lover myself, I knew that when choosing a makeup artist for my wedding I couldn't choose just anyone. All I can say is that Roma is truly amazing!! At my trial, she took the time to ask questions and find out exactly what I was looking for. As soon as she was done, I knew I wanted her to do my makeup for my wedding. When the wedding day came, she traveled to my hotel suite and did the makeup for myself as well as 5 others. She showed up early, stayed 100% on schedule, and was a true professional from start to finish. She is enthusiastic, funny, and so easy to talk to. My makeup came out AWESOME and I received so many compliments. I can't thank Roma enough for making me feel beautiful on such an important day. I would highly recommend her and plan on using her myself for future events!

I know it's taken me FOREVER to leave a review, but I just had to talk about how much I absolutely LOVED Rasheeda from beginning to end! I hired Rasheeda as the Make-up Artist for my wedding. From our first conversation she was soo friendly and down-to-earth, and wanted to make sure she captured exactly what I wanted for my big day. My consultation was excellent. She took her time and tried different looks for me until it was perfect. She never made me feel rushed or was very knowledgeable and patient. On my wedding day, she arrived early and ready to work. My bridal party all ran late, but she was patient and took her time with each and every one of us, and even squeezed in my Mother-in-law at the last minute. Everyone looked amazing and we all received soo many compliments on our make-up. Even my cousin who was one of my bridesmaids, and does not like wearing make-up at all, said she really liked Rasheeda's work. All and all, my entire bridal party had a wonderful experience with Rasheeda! If you're looking for a MUA who is professional, timely, super friendly, flexible and patient, look no further...you'll make the right choice choosing Make-up Junkiez!

Thao was hired to do my bridal hair and makeup. There were never enough words for me to express my gratitude and appreciation to Thao. She has done an exceptional service for my special day. She was absolutely a professional and amazing stylist. She was very patience, creative, and sensational. She has done a wonderful job to help me becoming one of the most beautiful brides. I was very glad to find her from Facebook. She is not only a skillful stylist but she is also very well knowledgeable on cosmetics and skincare. Her informative advices saved me a lot of headaches during my wedding preparation. Check out my photos. I hope sharing my experience with Thao can help you find your right stylist. Good luck!

Gul and her partner were both very responsible and showed up on time for my wedding.. I knew that I could count on them to be there for my special day. From the minute I met Gul, she continued to respond to my messages very quickly and gave very helpful advice and answered any questions that I had. They are both very good makeup artists and only use the best quality makeup and products.. You can count on them to make you look flawless on your wedding day, and they will put in as much time as you need them to get the job done. If you want a makeup artist who will do any makeup look you like, use high end products, and give you only the best advice possible then you can count on these two ladies 100%. They will not let you down. I think more people should know about NGK studio because these two girls truly are experts in the work that they do and they are very hardworking they will not let you down. I promise. I got so many compliments on how flawless I looked the day of my wedding, and how amazing my hair looked that day. People couldn't stop raving over the fact that I just looked like I walked out of a movie.. I was very tired that day too(functioning on only one hour of sleep and they were somehow able to transform me into a celebrity) You will look amazing too on your wedding day four sure=) =) I am usually very picky with who I decide to do my makeup, but there was just something about this girl that I could tell she would do a fantastic job and I was right. Spread the word, these girls are experts!!! Sincerely, Dana

I was a Matron of Honor in a wedding recently and Chei’La was the makeup artist for the bridal party as well as the bride. She really did a beautiful job for us. This was my first time getting false lashes and Chei’La really made my eyes look good and the bride was really stunning! I highly recommend her for your event. She is professional, punctual and definitely knows how to make you look and feel beautiful.

Trisha was amazing. She did my makeup and 5 others for my wedding. She was able to do an add on for us as well. My mom saw how good everyone's makeup was looking and last minute decided to get hers done. She really took her time with each of us. We looked so pretty. For me she did the airbrush makeup. It was flawless! My bridesmaids did not do airbrush but it turned out just as good. Throughout the entire evening each and everyone of us got a ton of compliments on how wonderful we looked. Five stars!!

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.
