Cassandra is truly untouchable with her talent!! After traveling the WORLD and making THOUSANDS of people feel beautiful and look stunning. She has a wealth of knowledge and skills that surpass's even the greatest makeup artists. She did my makeup and my best friends make up for her wedding last year. After listening to us about what we pictured in our head's, she went to work, combining her vision's with our's. We were her blank canvass and the final result blew us away! I have never felt like supermodel material, but on that day, I felt like I looked the best I had ever looked. She made me feel like a movie star! As for my best friend Jessica...Well, words cannot describe how beautiful she looked on the most important day of her life. She was timeless. When Jessica looked in the mirror after she was done, she was completely speechless with nothing but a smile spread across her face. It moved me to tears. I will never forget that moment. Not only is Cassandra wonderful at listening to her clients when they tell her their vision, but she is also a great conversationalist! So easy to talk to and truly a pleasure to be around. I would recommend her to everyone and anyone. No matter how big or small the occasion, no matter how young or old the person. She is worth every dollar!

Having no connections or whereabouts in regards to anything in North Carolina I was petrified when I had to find a makeup artist for my wedding in Cary, NC. The Little Makeup Artist saved my wedding giving me peace of mind that was desperately needed. Her work is beyond amazing, I spent a long time researching only to find that no one compares to her work. Her products are top of the line and everything is nice and clean. Besides from being a great makeup artist she is wonderful company. I cannot recommend Divya enough.

Julia is an incredibly tallented hair stylist & makeup artist. I felt so beautiful & at ease on my wedding day, thanks to her. Julia listened to my request, provided a trial hair consultation, and did some magic to make my hair dreams come true. I gave Julia the task of creating a hairstyle that could fit under a motorcycle helmet, could be windblow & stay glamorous for hours. This girl has an eye for style & she is a great support to any bride or bridal party. Oh and did I mention she is fun, lovely, handworking, efficient & works well in a variety of settings including proms, banquets, black tie events, weddings, or any time you want to feel your best.

Ms.Bree is the woman to come to if you are in need of an excellent make-up artist. I struggled for so long to get my makeup looking the correct way. Just one visit with Bree's blessed hands and my makeup has been correct since then. Bree was professional, calm and honest. She didnt make me feel bad about things that i was doing wrong. She had good conversation, we laughed a lot. Overall i had a great time and I will definitely go to her again. Thank you Bree😊

Ava is a talented makeup artist with very artistic my first impression of her was friendly with an incredible personality I spoke with her and told her what I was looking for she let me know she listen to me by repeating back to me what I stated I wanted. She seem very confident which made me feel comfortable right away and it let me know she would take good care of me. During the application she educated me and generally offered me tips on how use makeup and how to apply makeup for day/ night time looks to do for myself in between appointments at home. Overall it was a great experience and Ava provided a positive environment as an established makeup artist she performed an excellent job and as for the results I left looking flawless. So I definitely recommend her as a go-to person for a makeup application service at anytime for any occasion.

I was the Maid of Honor in my best friend's wedding and Vivian was amazing! She was relaxed and professional from the second she arrived at 6am on the day of! She was able to whip out 3 bridesmaids, one mother-in-law, the beautiful bride, and even a last minute addition, all by picture time at 12:00pm. She was upbeat and positive and her makeup was amazing and lasted throughout the night! The bride looked absolutely stunning and she made sure to take just as much care with all of the bridesmaids as well! From the first time I talked with Vivian over email, she has been nothing but prepared and professional. She helped the bride create her vision during the trial makeup session, and later followed up with email to get selfies of all the bridesmaids in order to prepare lip and foundation colors. She even brought an extra stick of lipstick to give to the bride so she could reapply on the day of the wedding, if needed! I could not recommend Vivian more! If you are looking for a professional and punctual makeup artist who's phenomenal at her trade, then look no further.

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.
