Tai , I never wear make- up, so when my son was getting married I knew I would have to try out several makeup artists. I wanted to make sure that I could find one who could help me feel comfortable all day and look great in these memorable pictures. I tried out several and Tai made me feel like a friend from our first meeting. We talk while she did the test like old friends. After my make-up was finished, I went out and ran some errands. I felt glamorous. I had told her my daughter also wanted her makeup done for the wedding but she was unable to come to the test. Tai was gracious and handled it in stride. I didn’t feel rushed the day of my son’s wedding and felt quite pampered. My daughter and I were stunning. I will use Tai in the future and I would HIGHLY recommend her.

Delia was great! She was so warm and friendly and listened to my overall concerns. She left me looking like a million bucks without having to spend that much. I was pleasantly surprised because she was much more affordable than other makeup artists. Delia definitely knows what she's doing and I would hire her again, I got many compliments on my makeup, which lasted all through the night. The only not so positive thing I have to comment is she did run a little late due to another appointment, but she was still very professional, and let me know, rather than keep me waiting for her, which was much appreciated.

I can't say enough about Kate. She was incredibly responsive, made all the girls feel at ease and went ABOVE and BEYOND what is expected of a makeup artist. She was helping style hair, helping with dresses, giving everyone touch ups and pointers. She truly is the BEST in the business. And if it's not for her personality and kindness, my makeup was absolutely FLAWLESS and lasted the entire night. Everyone made comments on how beautiful it was. I can't say enough about Kate and if you are looking for a make up look no further! Thank you again Kate for making my Wedding Day PERFECTION!

Patricia and her team did hair and makeup for all of my bridesmaids and flower girl and my hair. I typically wear a lot of makeup so I was too nervous to have someone else do my make-up, but I was really happy with how my hair turned out! She even put my clip-in extensions in for me. My mom and a few bridesmaids didn't like their hair and ended up re-doing it themselves, but I guess that's how it goes - some people are just more picky. Also, one of my bridesmaids had a little reaction to the false eyelash glue that was used but she just has sensitive eyes and skin so we took them off and used a different glue. I would just make sure to tell your makeup artist if you have any sensitivities. Overall, I thought it was a great experience. All of my bridesmaids felt so pampered having their hair and makeup done and I think it reduced everyone's stress levels the day of the wedding. We were able to just sit back and relax in the hotel room while Patricia and her team worked their magic on us. They were there all morning from 9am until around 1 working hard and I really appreciated it. Also, Patricia is just one of those people that's nice to be around. It felt like she and her assistants were part of the family hanging out with us! Thanks again, Patricia!

Lisa did my makeup as a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding. I felt like she really understood what I wanted and was able to give recommendations. Some makeup artists say "pick you own color" and she was able to say what blush/lipstick/etc. she thought would look best with the eye look. She also did great brows!

Eva is the BEST makeup artist. She is extremely professional and makes you feel like a princess. I had originally hired Eva for my bridal makeup but after my bridal trial I ended up hiring for several other events including my wedding makeup. The day of the wedding she arrived early, got everyone done ahead of schedule but made sure everyone looked great and was satisfied. She definitely goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. I will definitely hire her for future events.

Lilly was absolutely fantastic to work with. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as hair and makeup for several of my bridesmaids. Everything looked perfect and held up well. She was also very responsive to feedback. I had some changes to my makeup look after my trial and the final product ended up perfect. My hair also held up incredibly for the entir night. Would absolutely recommend and hire again.

Living in cities like LA, D.C., Scottsdale and Chicago, Brandon is as good as it gets when it comes to a flawless makeup applications. Not only is he incredibly funny and cute, but he knows products, ingredients, and tricks for just about everything! Even his glam looks look fresh, natural, and effortless - glowing and healthy looking skin is his thing. He truly is talented and probably the most knowledgeable professional artist I've ever met. He has a true passion for his craft! I would trust him for any and every occasion! TRULY THE BEST! and be prepared to fall in love with him within seconds, he is that makeup artist you put on speed dial.

Professional and efficient! Allison was so pleasant and after I showed her a picture of what I wanted for an updo, actually made my hair look better than the picture I showed her. Her makeup artistry was fabulous- and her attention to detail was much appreciated! (Blending down to neck) you won’t go wrong if you hire her! She really has exceptional talent with makeup!

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!

My makeup artist, Nika, arrived right on time and gave me exactly the natural look that I asked for. My face looked terrific in the photos I took that day, and the makeup stayed on until bedtime. I’d definitely recommend her to everyone who is looking for professional makeup artist. From now on, she is my favorite.

I'm in love with Jorden!! My bridal party and I got our mqkeup done by Jorden before my wedding and to say that she is incredible is an understatement. Her customer service, authenticity, and overall talent is above and beyond any other makeup artist. She made me feel beautiful and my makeup lasted all day and night through the July heat and lots of dancing-talk about quality! Thank you Jorden for making me look and feel beautiful on my special day!

Erica was great! She took her time doing my makeup and also took steps to make sure I was happy with my overall look. She was very patient and professional and I could definitely go back to her to get my makeup don for another special occasion. My only complaint is the glitter​ from my eyes getting everywhere else on my face, BUT for me, it wasn't a big deal at all, just a little added shimmer :)

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.
