Noel showed up on time and with all necessary supplies. She knew I was on a tight time schedule so she had pre-selected colors/shades based on a picture I sent her to save time. Unlike other makeup artists she listened when I said I wanted light/natural looking makeup and did not overdo anything. My husband thought my makeup looked better than the salon I normally go to and she was extremely reasonably priced. I warned her in advance that my 16 month old would be with me during the appointment and it didn't seem to phase her when I had to take a minute to take care of my daughter. I was extremely satisfied and would definitely hire her again.

Ralphann was fantastic! Truly a caring and nice individual, she is also a true expert in her field. My wedding hair and makeup looked incredible, both in real life and in the photographs! The make up application lasted in 94 degree heat with 90 percent humidity, looking almost as perfect at midnight as it did at 3 pm. If you want an expert makeup artist that is also a good person, pick Ralphann and her Beyond Beauty team.

We LOVED having Nyssa as our makeup/hair stylist. She arrived right on time and was ready to get started. She did the bride’s hair and makeup, the MOB’s hair and the MOG’s makeup. The Bride showed her a picture of what the she wanted and we were so happy that her hair looked exactly like she requested. Nyssa is a joy to be around and we enjoyed getting ready with her. She has a sweet, calm, stress free personality. Highly recommend her!

    Not only did my makeup look AMAZING , but after finding out the hairstylist canceled at the very last minute Diana offered to help out immediately with out any hesitation! She was beyond wonderful and I would most defiantly recommend her services to anyone looking to get their makeup done professionally. She made the whole process easily and not at all stressful from our initial conversation, to the consult, to the day of. She surpassed all my expectations; if there were more than 5 stars she totally earned them! Oh and the value (price point) was great. It goes to show just because something is affordable doesn't mean its lacking on quality.

    Kelsea did a great job on my makeup! I gave her a few different pictures that I wanted to follow and she made me look better than those pictures! :) I dont really know much about makeup but she helped explain what she was using and why it was neccessary. I also asked her a few questions about skin products to use for acne as well and she helped point me in the right direction. I would definitely recommend kelsea for any occasion!!

I recommend Nikki for any makeup services....you won't be disappointed.

    I love Irene's work! I recently did a trial makeup with her for my upcoming wedding and I was amazed. With my oily skin tone I've never found a foundation to match my skin type. She did an amazing job!

    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.
