Everything about this experience was amazing. My makeup artist had cancelled with me last minute and Kate was able to fit me in to her schedule. The makeup was phenomenal!! She is so talented and I was in the end grateful my other artist cancelled because I was way happier with her!!

Rubi was the makeup artist for my best friends wedding recently and she was amazing! She was so sweet and she did a fantastic job and made sure it was done well and we were happy. My makeup lasted well into the night until I took it off! She was very reasonably priced too!

Jess was a godsend! I reached out to her a couple weeks before my wedding 10/29/16 after our original makeup artist didn't feel like the "right fit." She was able to squeeze me in for a trial and was super accommodating for our wedding party of 7 people. She was efficient, worked well with each individual's preferences, and made everyone comfortable and at ease- and feel fabulous! She did great work and was at a great price point, I would highly recommend Jess to any bride!

      I have had my make up done for numerous occasions- weddings, work events, fashion shows, etc. I have tried large company and independent make up artists and I can honestly say that no one has come close to Kirsty's talent and care! She takes her time, explains her process and caters to your desired look and colors. Her work is versatile and individualized for different skin tones, textures, etc. I have, and will continue to recommend Kirsty to all people looking for a make up artist- for whatever the occasion! Kirsty, your work is amazing!

      Stephanie is absolutely amazing! She was my makeup artist for my wedding! I specifically had her focus on myself, my mother, as well as my maid of honor. No complaints and I would hire her a thousand times over again for every major event that I have if I could. Highly recommended!

      My experience with Teshanna was amazing. She did an awesome job with my hair and makeup and was professional and prompt with her responses to my questions pre-appointment. I also loved that she was able to travel to me and the entire experience was effortless. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome stylist and I will definitely hire her again.

      Alicia was really great about taking ideas from what I wanted and adding her own tips and knowledge into creating a perfect bridesmaid look. She has a wide range of make up brands, colors, and looks for anyone. She was always very professional and made adjustments based on my preferences. Having a practice trial was great because it gave us both the opportunity to test out different looks to make sure it was perfect for the big day. The make up lasted the entire day; through tears, sweat, and rain thanks to her high end make up and setting spray. I would highly recommend her make up business to anyone!

        Shalisa is both an amazing artist and a skillful business professional. As someone new to the world of make up, and usually quite uncomfortable with the whole experience, I'm very selective with who I let near my million-dollar face (lol). Shalisa made my session painless, educational, relaxing and quite enjoyable. I sat in her chair, with no vision or goals beyond "hook it up", and that's exactly what she did. I highly recommend her services for women across the spectrum of comfort and experience with makeup, and to anyone looking to learn more about how to apply their own, while taking good care of their skin. She meets you where you're at, and accentuates your existing beauty--which is what she does as a friend as well :)

        I worked with Rebecca for my own wedding back in 2014. She provided both hair and makeup. I had the pleasure of working with The Hitching Post this past May for a friends wedding as well. Everything was phenomenal from start to finish. Extremely professional and detail oriented!

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          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 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.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
