Chelsea and 2 assistants did hair and makeup for my wedding party. There were 7 people total, including myself and we all looked wonderful. Chelsea is professional and knows how to get the look you want. I felt beautiful on that day and I just want to thank Chelsea for her great work! If you need a talented makeup and hair artist at an affordable price I definitly suggest her services.

I know that I'm not a makeup artist, and I only can judge. Actually I love your makeup, but it's all about you, sister. Don't too hurry to finish for a contribute job. For sure I really love your makeup!

Kerrin was so lovely to work with! From our initial communication to my wedding day, she was very easy to get in touch with and always made sure I was happy and satisfied. My bridesmaids and I had a great experience, and felt beautiful! Kerrin listened to what each person wanted their makeup to look like and easily made adjustments. After researching for wedding makeup artists, Kerrin was the best value hands down, without any sacrifice of quality or experience :)

We scheduled four henna tattoo artists for our high school's SpringFest and they were the most popular attraction all day! We heard nothing but compliments about their interactions with students and the quality of their work!

Tara was recommended to me by my stylist for wedding makeup. From my first interaction with her, she was warm, friendly and professional. She was very responsive and helpful. Tara did a great job of listening to what I wanted and developing a look that worked well for me through our trial. On the big day she did a fantastic job on my look as well as my bridesmaids and mother. I loved the way I looked in the moment and in the photos after. I was also delighted by how well my makeup wore. Even in the last photos of the night, it still looked great. Tara has great energy, she inspires confidence and is fun to be around!

Catherine did my makeup for my wedding last Friday. I would have died with out her! She did an amazing job, was so friendly. Has great prices, she even came to me! Was a doll and even did one of my bridesmaid's makeup for free. I had never met her before my big day but she felt like a best friend, she helped me out more then just makeup. Calmed my nerves, helped with my hair, stayed with my up until seconds before I walked down the isle. Gave me a little confidence boost before sending me off. She was more then a makeup artist, she was my lifesaver! Thanks again love.

Beth did an amazing job on my wedding makeup. I've been to a lot of weddings as a bridesmaid or just as a guest for friends and family and had my makeup done by a lot of different artists, but Beth was by far the best. Her attention to detail is really what caught the eye. I loved that the makeup she did was subtle, and not over the top which is much easier to do. Subtle and beautiful. I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful wedding makeup artist!

I had initially done a trial with Claire in which I wanted very natural looking makeup, then I went home and took pictures and decided I wanted to slightly glam that version up and Claire was fine with the last minute change. Additionally, my mother in law also decided that she would like her makeup done and Claire was able to add her as well, which was really nice. Also, she was able to recommend a product for me that seems really great. She was nice to work with and on a strange side note- her makeup smelled great. LOL.

Moriah made up my husband and I for Halloween. Our basic premise was "living dead girl and guy". Our makeup looked amazing and we were highly complimented all night at our Halloween party. Moriah did great work, showed up on time, confirmed our appointment etc and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to dress up for a party and stand out from the crowd. She spent two hours with the both of us and even helped me put on my fake eyelashes to finish off my outfit :)

I had an amazing experience with CruBeauty. She was attentive, she was fun, she was everything I was hoping for in a makeup artist. I normally do my own makeup so I was super hesitant to let someone else do it, but Cristina made me feel so comfortable it was like she was the one doing my makeup all along! I wouldn’t even consider anyone else when I have someone I can trust 100% now. HIGHLY recommend.

    Shawna is the artist who did my bridal hair and makeup for my wedding. Shawna was a consummate professional from the start of the process through my last touch up and I would give her 10 stars if I could. She is highly skilled and crafted the perfect hair and makeup combination for the wedding. In fact, it felt like she knew what I wanted/needed better than I did! The hair and makeup presented beautifully in the pictures and I would not have changed a thing. Shawna was patient, kind, and helped keep the morning before my wedding very calm. It was like having a friend with amazing skills do my hair and makeup! If you are looking for someone to make you look like the best version of yourself on your wedding day, you should book Shawna or a member of the Lux team!

    You will have the best experience working with Christie! Hands down, she is one of the most talented Makeup Artists in the Pacific Northwest. Christie has spent years training with CHANEL, Laura Mercier and making countless brides look beautiful. She has a natural ability in choosing complimentary colors coupled with perfect application technique which is flawless. She is also a wiz with false eyelashes. Everyone who leaves her chair looks stunning. The added bonus -- Christie is professional, smart and very sweet. I highly recommend CM Artistry!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
