I had an Indian wedding and Brishna did my makeup and hair for Mehendi, wedding ceremony and reception. Brishna did a good job with my makeup and hair for all the functions. My wedding veil was literally 20 pounds and she did a great job with fixing it, and it stayed at the same place for the entire wedding. I had many questions regarding my wedding look leading up to the wedding but Brishna always made herself available to answer my questions. Thanks for all the help. I really appreciate it.

Iman scheduled me in last minute after my original makeup artist canceled on me. I'm so glad she canceled because Iman did a beautiful job on myself and my entire bridal party. I would recommend.

BJohn was very easy to work with. She did an awesome job on my makeup for my daughters wedding . My main concern was having my makeup melt off. After 12 hours including heat of the day & dancing my makeup looked as fresh as when it was applied. BJohn was very professional and I would recommend her in a heart beat. I received a lot of compliments on my smoky eye look. THANK YOU BJohn Sophie T. Wozniak

My mom and I hired Joanne for my bridal and bridal party make-up. She was such a pleasure to work with! She offered a trial run so we could play around with different colors and looks which really took a lot of the stress off because I knew exactly what to expect. She was extremely communicative throughout the whole process. On the day of she really took her time and made sure everyone looked perfect. I couldn't have been happier and received so many compliments. I would highly recommend her for any make-up needs!

I had makeup done for a private photo shoot recently and the service was impeccable! She was prompt , on time and very professional! Not only did she teach me how to apply my makeup, she gave me wonderful tips for a flawless face, her work speaks for itself! I was very happy that the tone of makeup was beautiful and it really fit my skin tone, as thats what was most important for me..I looked fabulous! I was skeptical as I am new to wearing different eye shadow shades but when I looked in the mirror I was in complete awe, that not only did I just get a full makeover at an affordable price but I felt absolutely fabulous and I knew my pictures were going to come out Perfect! I would definitely book her again for my beauty needs and tips!!

Leila is amazing at doing make-up. I have watched her do make overs on people but I have also watched her apply make-up on her bare face and witness the beautiful transformation. The thing that impresses me the most about her is the infinite styles of make-up she can and does accomplish. You want a natural look? Done. You want a sexy exotic look? Done. She loves the art of make-up and it shows. Anyone needing advice and services, she's the one to go to. I highly recommend her.

Kimberly is by far the best hair hairstylist I have found here, I moved here from England where Hairstylists are very well trained so I am very picky about my hair and my stylist, I give Kimberly a big thumbs up. Oh and I love my colour too.

    In many occasions I've used Beauty by Ayonna. I've always had plenty of ideas and she makes them come to life with an artistic flare. Most recently she was the make up artist for my wedding party. Everyone especially myself were truly pleased with the job done. Plenty of compliments as a result of her dedicated work. So even if it's simply for an small event, a formal engagement or simply a girls night out, I will again turn to her not just for services but also advice!!

      Danielle was recommended to me by a friend of a friend for makeup and hair for weddings. I contacted her and she responded ASAP and set up a trial AT MY APARTMENT (which was just amazing... it was a spa day and I didn't have to go anywhere). I loved her trial and I hired her for the following year. She drove three hours to Jackson, NH from Boston and was perfectly on time and ready to go before I was even fully awake. I could not have been more thrilled with what she did!! My hair and makeup were absolutely perfect. She also did my bridesmaids hair for the big day..... everyone looked like they hopped out of a BHLDN website (soft romantic up do's with loose twists and braids framing their faces perfectly). I would highly recommend Danielle for any event large or small, she was the perfect person to have there that morning. She kept me calm and collected with her sweet personality and she was making me laugh so hard it was sometimes hard to keep a straight face for lipstick. I have attached a few photos, hire this girl if you want to worry about one less thing on your big day! Xox Alycia

        About

        I like to bring out and enhance the persons natural beauty. So many others like to cover up simply because it is make up. But if you do it right you can still use make up to enhance the beauty within that person, as well on the outside.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        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.

        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 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.
