I truly couldn't have picked a better makeup artist and hair stylist for my wedding than Gelevia, she is amazing!!! So sweet & funny - I knew immediately after our initial communication without a trial that I wanted her for my big day and she did not disappoint. She was always so helpful and responsive from my first inquiry. We exchanged so many emails and texts and she always responded promptly and never made me feel as if I was bothering her or asking a silly question. I told Gelevia I wanted a soft look to match my fairytale wedding she nailed it! I still looked like myself but glamorous and the makeup lasted through the ceremony, reception and then some. My guests were commenting near the end of the reception that I looked exactly the same as when I walked down the aisle. She did makeup, hair & lashes along with her fellow stylist Keisha for myself the bride and 8 other girls in no time. She is the simply best!!!! She listened and made sure every single person was happy with their look. They were both super fun and positive and dedicated to making everyone feel special and beautiful. Gelevia is such a genuine person that everyone felt at ease and it was as if she was a member of the bridal party. Do yourself a favor and look no further for your wedding makeup artist. Hire her, you'll be so glad you did

Celly has really been great with makeup for darker skin women. I usually let her just go for it! My eyes always pop! We are still working on a lipstick color that works for me. I have fuller lips and a lot of makeup artist shy away from bold colors—especially with my skin tone but Celly and I are almost there—finding what will work for me. I love that she carries her makeup ring light with her—my skin tone is always matched. She’s super precise and patient. My eyelashes are a bit tricky but she always works to make sure they get them on—I’m a blinker! I can’t wait until my next session.

I was fortunate to have the beautiful Ms. Iris apply my makeup before a Davids Bridal gown showcase and I have never felt more beautiful. I was especially pleased with her application of my eye makeup. I look forward to working with her again!

    Amanda did the makeup for a bridal party that I was apart of. She was able to make 8 women with very different faces and skin tones look equally beautiful. She was punctual and polite and made everyone comfortable. I would recommend her a million times over.

    Love working with Janis. She has done my hair and makeup for my wedding, my sister’s wedding and my niece’s senior portraits. Her work is incredible and she is just the sweetest. Kind of cool to have someone who does celebrities also be my personal makeup artist. Book her, you won’t regret it!

    She is super friendly, professional and knows what she is doing. The only person I would trust with my hair. My sister is having her airbrush makeup done by Juli for her wedding. Great work!

    Omg. Kaitlin did an awesome job on my makeup. I was literally glowing lol and I loved it. I was open to any look. I wanted something vibrant and colorful. And Kaitlin really delivered. I could tell she was focused on giving me the best experience as possible. She made me feel very comfortable. Although, I loved the overall look, my brows and eyes were my favorite. I liked the brow product she used and would purchase it. I went out that night and danced a lot. My makeup was still in tact. I would definitely get her to do my makeup again.

    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 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.

    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.
