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 used her for both my wedding trial makeup and wedding day. On trial day, I wasn't sure what I wanted so I ended up with glam makeup, which was really nice but not quite what I was looking for. On my wedding day, all I asked for was a softer look and it was beautiful! She considered how my hair was and what my dress looked like and matched the look perfectly. I have some skin issues and she was careful about making sure everything was covered, and even asked how my skin was doing the next day after the trial. Very professional and friendly!

I've always been a bit hesitant to get professional advice or makeup done because my skin is so picky! When I hired Christina to do my wedding makeup though, she listened to me and worked with me, and made my extremely dry skin dewy and radiant for my wedding day! I would recommend Christina to anyone looking for a clean, natural (or bold!) look, and a boost of confidence! She is fun to be around and totally patient for those of us not so accustomed to getting our faces pampered! Thanks Christina!

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!

Antonia did a wonderful job with my hair and makeup for the Indian wedding. She also went out of the way and set up all the jewelry that goes into the hair and the duppatta that needs to rest on my head. She didn't know how to set the dupatta but she looked it up on youtube at last minute and did a perfect job setting it up. The make up and dupatta stayed as is for the entire evening and I didn't have to worry about the touch up. Antonia is very sweet and charming and customer satisfaction is her highest priority. Thank you so much for making me look so pretty.

Jamie did makeup and hair for my wedding! She was lovely and kind, patient and friendly. I don't wear much makeup regularly, so I wanted a bright and natural look. She listened to all of my concerns and did a wonderful job. She also makes her own makeup line, which was very good on my skin. I fell asleep without washing my face and there were no breakouts! Even in the 95 degree heat and an outdoor wedding, her hair and makeup held up wonderfully :) If you want a great listener and professional artist, Jamie is the one.

I had my hair and makeup done by Julie for a wedding that I was a part of. I could not have been happier with the final result. She really listened to me and by doing so, was able to achieve the look i was going for! She far exceeded my expectations! She’s very professional and has an extremely likeable personality. No “awkward silence” feeling with her! :D

Working with Claire was a delight! Not only did she do a fantastic job with a really nice natural looking look but she's a joy to talk with while she's working, I've had my makeup done a couple times before but they always made my colors a little too dark especially on my pale skin and eyebrows. However, Claire was very considerate with her choice in colors for me and I really enjoyed my experience with her. 20/10 would recommend!

I've had my lashes done a multipel times with Melissa and she has blown the competition out of the water! In the past, which other lash extensions, it looked like I was wearing heavy makeup (the opposite of natural, which is what I get with Melissa), the chemical smells were strong, my lashes were uncomfortable and I would get glue in my eye. Melissa is super pro in application, technique and manner. She plays music during the process so you can relax and stay still which ensures the best application. I have nothing but amazing things to say about her makeup abilities as well! :) I'm very picky with makeup (I rubbed off half my wedding makeup because it was "not me") and Melissa has nailed it every time, at least 20 times.

I don’t usually leave reviews, however, Cristina did my wife’s makeup for our wedding, and oh my god I cried. My wife just looked absolutely beautiful, and Cristina had catered to all her needs and listened to everything she had to say about the makeup application. Not only was Cristina extremely skilled, she was so patient and hardworking; you could really tell that she puts all her heart into her work. Hire her, you will not be disappointed.

    Rene has done my makeup on three separate occasions, and I've been very happy with the results each time! She can do dramatic makeup, but can also do a more natural look (but the best version of natural). She is good about listening to what a client wants, and really is an artist. I would wholeheartedly recommend her!

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.

      About

      Hello and welcome! I'm so excited to share my story and passion with you. I began my career in beauty unexpectedly seven years ago working with industry-leading brands like Smashbox, Christian Dior, and MAC. The world of cosmetics challenged me and intrigued me, and the more I learned, the deeper I loved my work and the further I chased my beauty education. I sought out the world's most renowned artists to learn from and guide me. My passion stemmed not from the glitter and the gloss (although those are loads of fun!) but from the smiles and tears from my lovely clients. The makeup experience is deeply personal and intimate, each client comes to me with their own insecurities and hopes, and I take so much pride in my ability to bring my expertise in harmony with your vision to create artful and customized beauty. I enjoy the versatility in my work, whether it's pampering a bride on her most memorable day, or working with a team of creatives to breathe life into their art. It is a blessing to love what I do, and I truly can't wait to work with you!

      About

      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.
