Mia did a fantastic job on everyone’s hair and makeup on my wedding day. We communicated pretty extensively about my vision, she listened and asked questions to make sure she understood what I wanted, and she was very prompt in our communications. Mia is also very creative; I had two back to back ceremonies that required a dress change and I was struggling to find a hair style that would work for both ceremonies. When we met to talk about my vision she came up with a slight hair adjustment that was quick to do, but gave me a different look! I was very happy with my makeup and both my hairstyles. On the day of the wedding Mia arrived on time, she made everyone (including myself) feel at ease and kept things light! She was very polite and professional. I would highly recommend Mia for weddings and other special occasions!

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!

She gave me a natural look with a soft glow in addition to a bold purple lip color. She was very sweet and she took time to adjust the makeup to my preferences. I will definitely ask her to do my prom makeup. Her prices were very cheap compared to other makeup artists. And the makeup done was outstanding. Extremely pleased.

Ashley did an amazing job on the makeup for my wedding. I was so happy with how both my sister and my makeup looked. I was a little disappointed because we ran out of time. We started at 11:30 and had to leave by 1:30. There was only 3 of us, so I assumed 2 hours would be sufficient. My mom's makeup was not complete due to this. I fully believe that if Ashley had an hour to do my mom she would have been amazing as well! Thank you Ashley for all of your hard work.

Judith and Jossi are kind and professional, and it was fun to have my trial hair and makeup done by them. I only had vague ideas of what I wanted for my updo and makeup, but these artists did their magic and I was amazed by the outcome. I trust them completely with my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup on my wedding day.

I am so happy that I hired Anna to do all the hairstyling for my wedding. I loved her work! She stayed on schedule (7 hairstyles + my makeup in 4 1/2 hours), was very responsive to my requests, and made me feel beautiful for my wedding day. She did my makeup in addition. I don't usually wear much makeup and she did a nice, natural look that felt really comfortable.

Maryam is the best makeup guru/artist I know! She will make you feel comfortable. There won’t be any awkward moments because she will talk to you and have conversations with you the whole time. The results are always beautiful and professional. She has a talent and it shows when she does makeup. She understands what kind of style you want and tries her best to satisfy customers. She is very sweet and loving and is very understandable. I loved the setting of her makeup station and the lighting. While she was doing my makeup, I did not worry at all that she’s doing something wrong. I trusted her because she’s just that kind of person. And I loved my end results! She made my prom day bomb and my graduation day! I am definitely going to her again if I want to get my makeup done.

Rita is amazing!! She was the make-up artist for my entire wedding party including my mother and bridesmaids (7) and all of us were flawless!! I would recommend her to any and everyone!! She is patient and will listen to your desires for your make-up. Rita was professional and able to work very well with all of our different personalities. She was and still is a godsend.

I was given a complimentary makeover by Julianna. She was very nice and explained every product and it’s purpose. The products were of good quality and made my face feel light, as if I had no makeup on. The finished product was outstanding. Everyone raved about my makeup. Julianna is a true professional. She is also a wife and a mother. Her family is beautiful and kind.

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.

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.
