I hired Noel to do the makeup of Judge Mablean, who is the star of the syndicated court show Justice with Judge Mablean. I needed someone with expertise in production and lighting and making sure the talent's makeup was camera ready. Mablean was in Virginia Beach for an event and agreed to shoot some custom promos for the local station, WSKY that carries her show. Many of the details of the project came together last minute including a slight shift in the timing of the event, and Noel was flexible, easy to work with given that I was not onsite to communicate with her directly and she did a wonderful job with Mablean's makeup and was very professional with the talent and the producers. If you are looking for an experienced, dependable and talented professional in the makeup industry I would highly reccomend you hire Noel! Thanks for all of your assistance Noel. You were truly a pleasure to work with. All the best, Michelle

Lisa was incredible! She was one of the first makeup artist to respond to my request and she did an outstanding job! I was a little scared to hire a makeup artist that I've never worked with for such an important event but she killed it! She traveled to me, arrived 15 minutes earlier to set up and one hour later - my fiancé didn't recognize me. I would definitely recommend her services. Great job again!!

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.

We LOVED having Nyssa as our makeup/hair stylist. She arrived right on time and was ready to get started. She did the bride’s hair and makeup, the MOB’s hair and the MOG’s makeup. The Bride showed her a picture of what the she wanted and we were so happy that her hair looked exactly like she requested. Nyssa is a joy to be around and we enjoyed getting ready with her. She has a sweet, calm, stress free personality. Highly recommend her!

Diana transformed me into a beauty. I liked how she applied each makeup, she explained what she was doing and why. She recommended some great things for me which works. I left at ease. The makeup was spot on, I was pleased with it because I don't wear makeup everyday. I felt like a totally new person and everyone complimented how pretty I looked.

    Lena did hair and make for the bridal party and myself (mob). My hair and makeup was fabulous. She managed to get all this done while being a bridesmaid herself.

    Krysta did an awesome job on my makeup. She took the time prior to make-up application to understand exactly what type of look I was asking for. I wanted a fresh look that would enhance my features in a professional way. I was having make-up done for my a picture being placed on my business card and I didn’t want an over the top look but more of a natural subtle look. I am very happy with the outcome and Krysta will be my go-to make-up artist for all my special events. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family. She even stepped in as my photographer! Thanks again Krysta! Helen

    I love Irene's work! I recently did a trial makeup with her for my upcoming wedding and I was amazed. With my oily skin tone I've never found a foundation to match my skin type. She did an amazing job!

    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 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.
