Jada and her makeup artists were absolutely wonderful. Their makeup was flawless, and they were upbeat and happy the entire time. Jada was very professional in all her communications, and made all of us feel at ease. We had six makeups to do, of different ages and complexions, yet all of our makeups were equally well done and amazing.

Iman is an amazingly talented make up artist! She did my prom makeup and I swear, I've never gotten that many compliments before in my life! She's very personable and flexible! I asked very last minute if she could come earlier than our scheduled appointment time and she did just that with no hesitation, ifs, ands, or buts which shows her excellent customer service skills and willingness to go above and beyond for her clients! She answered all my questions and took care of all my concerns. She's really one of the best MUAs around, don't sleep on her!!

Alisha did a phenonemal job with the hair and makeup for my bridal party this past Saturday. She delivered the look that I wanted-Old Hollywood and even added some touches to the hairstyle that I wanted to take the look up a level. My new husband is still talking about how fabulous me and my girls looked. I gave her very little notice and she came through!

    Jen was fabulous! She was very patient with me wanting a specific look, and she made me look and feel beautiful. She was always easily reachable by text, phone, and email. She is incredibly talented. She did my trial, engagement pictures, and bridal makeup. She also did the entire wedding party, including the moms. All of my bridesmaids loved their makeup as well

    Tiamet provided EXCELLENT bridal makeup service for myself and my bridal party. When I initially contacted her and explained that my original makeup artist was no longer available, she rearranged her schedule to ensure she was available on my wedding day. Tiamet listened to my wishes when I told her how I envisioned my makeup, and she completed my look perfectly. She used airbrush makeup and it lasted all day and evening. I tend to have oily skin, however, my skin was flawless to the end of the evening (impressive). Not only did Tiamet provide excellent makeup service, but she was my rock pre-ceremony by keeping me calm =). I highly recommend Tiamet!!

    Haley is a genuine sweetheart and is amazing at what she does. I had her do a trial run on me for my bridal make-up and I cannot express how much I loved it! I have pretty bad uneven skin with sprinkles of acne scars and she covered it all up flawlessly. She used regular make-up as well as airbrush (which was really cool and made me feel like a superstar getting a spa treatment lol) She has an awesome fun personality so we chatted and that seemed to make the time fly by. She is also very gentle handed which is nice because I have had some make-up artists be more rough and kind of pound the foundation onto my face - but this was just nice and relaxing :) She is very knowledgeable and talented when it comes to make-up...a true artist. Haley is open to discussing your vision, what she thinks from her experience, and open to doing whatever look you’d like. I actually went out on date night after the trial, and I am writing this review upon waking up ... with a face full of intact flawless make-up, still!!! Quality, people 👌🏼 Book with Haley - you will be ensured an amazing experience!!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How long does a henna tattoo stay on?

    Typically a henna tattoo stays on anywhere from one to three weeks. Henna artists work with henna paste, also called mehndi, which dyes the skin for a short period of time. An important part of Indian culture, the use of henna has become increasingly popular in the United States, with henna artists providing henna tattoos for weddings, as event entertainment and for other special events. Henna artists typically apply their designs to the palms and backs of the hands, the wrists, up to the elbows, and from the feet up to the knees. To preserve the rich color of your henna tattoo and help it set, avoid water as much as possible within the first 24 hours of application. The color will be richest during the first week. Brides may want to have their henna tattoos applied one or two days before the wedding for optimal results.

    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.

    What is the meaning behind henna tattoos?

    Henna tattoos, as they are called in the United States, have a long tradition in Indian, African and Middle Eastern cultures. For centuries, the leaves of dried henna plants have been ground into a fine paste to be used as a temporary and nontoxic skin dye. This form of body decoration has been used in celebrations, weddings and ceremonial rites of passage in many cultures. Often in Hindu weddings, henna artists decorate the hands and feet of the bride (and at times the groom) with intricate designs. In some Muslim traditions, henna artists paint women with henna designs as they are in their final stages of pregnancy. In the United States, popular culture has adopted this beautiful body art and henna artists provide brides (and sometimes grooms) with temporary henna tattoos. Henna artists are also a popular choice for entertainment at corporate events, birthday parties, bachelorette parties and festivals. Henna artists may charge anywhere from $10 to $300 per hour.
