I reached out to Candice at the last minute after my makeup artist bailed on me less than a week before my wedding. She promptly responded and I was fortunate that she was available on my wedding day. I took a risk by moving forward with her without doing a consultation first but my bridal party's makeup came out great. Candice was professional and accommodating and ensured my day went as planned.

Brishna was amazing! I worked with her for my pre-wedding trial and wedding day makeup and hair. Her and her team also did hair and makeup for my bridesmaids. I was thrilled with her work and felt amazing all day. Brishna and her team really know what they're doing, and took special care to ask us all about our looks and skin types and everything. My makeup and hair lasted all day and night, and I got so many compliments on my entire look. Not only is Brishna a talented makeup artist, she is a really kind and fun person to work with, and super friendly. She also went out of her way at my pre-trial to make sure my eyebrows were looking good, a huge plus! Thank you for everything Brishna!!

Dayana did an awesome job with my makeup! I needed my makeup done for a pageant I was competing in near Fort Lee and Dayana knew exactly what kind of look to give me! She was lovely to work with and even helped us with directions when we got a little lost. My makeup was one of my favorite parts of the day. Thanks so much Dayana!

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

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.
