Mia saved me from an absolute wedding disaster! When my makeup artist canceled THE MORNING OF MY WEDDING, Mia came to the rescue and was at my house later that morning. She perfectly mixed foundation on the spot having never met me before, added gorgeous faux lashes, and basically made me look 100 times more glamorous than my everyday. She was also a pleasure to sit with for the hour and put me at ease the entire time. I was such a harried mess that morning but hanging out with Mia really turned my day around. I would absolutely recommend her, she's worth the higher price point for her skill, professionalism, and personality.

She was fantastic! All of my bridesmaids hair looked fabulous, my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. She was able to do everything from just a few inspiration photos. She was punctual and very easy to work with and she was able to do my mothers makeup even though she wasn’t originally asked to when hired. Great quality, great qualifications, great pricing, AND able to do both hair and makeup.

Angela was great. She showed up early and was able to do my mom and sister-in-law's make up for my wedding. My makeup was natural, but lasted all night. She was great!

I've gotten my makeup done by makeup artists on a few occasions, and I picked Maria at Make Up Artist Pro Group after my cousin used her for her wedding last year. I was really impressed with how my makeup turned out, and she was incredibly sweet and calming to the bride, which I knew would be an important quality to calm my own wedding day jitters. Since I had recently gotten engaged, I made sure to get her card, and called her a few weeks later when I set my wedding date to book her. When my wedding day came, she arrived early and was really pleasant. She kept me feeling at ease and stayed right on schedule throughout. It was clear that she keeps her kit and her supplies sanitary, and the products in the kit (other than the few products of my own that I preferred she use) are of great quality. They even gave me the option to purchase some of the products for touch ups. Throughout the whole process, she was very professional. I had a lot of specific ideas and requests for my big day makeup, and she was comfortable trusting my preferences for certain products. My makeup looked gorgeous. Totally perfect and more flawless than I ever could have imagined. My three bridesmaids looked absolutely beautiful. Most importantly, my makeup photographed beautifully. I could not have been happier. I'm so glad that my cousin found Makeup Artist Pro Group first, and that I decided to book them for my special day.

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.

When I started planning my wedding, I knew Elzi from Makeup by LZ had to be the one doing the makeup for me and the bridesmaids. Her ability to accentuate the beauty of everyone comes so easy but you can see how much time, patience, and dedication she puts in her work to make sure the best of the best gets created. She is beyond friendly, makes you feel comfortable and makes the process a whole lot of fun. There is a clear communication between you and her so the client always has a say and she tries her best to accommodate any changes. If you ever need makeup doing by Elzi I would strongly recommend her, always!

If you are looking for a talent, fun and memorable experience Eva is the artist for you! She really caters to your needs and spends time working with you to get your desired look. I am pretty new to makeup so she also spent some time teaching me little tricks that I could do at home! I went for a natural Smokey eye and Eva did exactly what I asked, I highly recommend her!

Trisha was wonderful to work with! She was running a free trial for hair and makeup and I was so happy with the trial run that we hired her for the wedding day. She did my makeup for engagement photos and also the hair and makeup for the wedding (along with my mom and 3 bridesmaids). I love that she offers traveling services, it was so nice to wake up at the wedding venue and have the beautifying team come to us. :) I was very happy with my bridal look (loved the airbrush makeup) and everyone looked amazing. A huge thanks to Trisha for making us look beautiful on the big day!

Sara did an amazing job doing makeup for me and my bridesmaid on the day of my wedding. (2.16.2017) She met us at the venue (we were able to get ready on site) on time, and worked carefully but yet at a great pace; she did all seven of us (plus a mother who wanted a small touch up) in about 3 hours and 30-45 mins. She brings good treats with her for the party to munch on while getting ready and music, so we were able to have fun despite the hustle and bustle going on to decorate and get the venue ready! She also uses completely natural makeup, so anyone can have their face done. My sister is very sensitive and has reactions to a lot of mainstream products, but she was fine after Sara did her makeup and the rest of the day! Our professional pictures are not in yet but I have a few here from one of my bridesmaids that give a good look at some of our faces. My friends are already very beautiful women but Sara transformed them into glamour models! I would highly recommend her! Thank you again Sara for your service :)

Carolyn Thombs is amazing! Truly an artist. Three of us had her do our makeup for a black tie party and we were beautiful. I loved that she asked each of us what we were looking for and made suggestions that fit our features. She is very professional and engaging and working with her was so easy and stress free! We received so so many compliments on our makeup that evening. All three of us looked like we had just stepped out of a magazine. I highly recommend Carolyn for anyone who is looking for a makeup artist with a passion for what she does. She is simply amazing!

    Kendall has colored my hair, styled it, and trimmed it. She does exactly what you want, doesn't do whatever she wants, and it turns out perfectly. It's hard to find a hairstylist to trust but I've found one and I'll only trust her with my hair from now on! She also does makeup! She has done my make up for a few special events and I've never felt more beautiful. Her collection is still growing but she has something for everyone. Overall Kendall is extremely talented and I trust her to make me 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.
