I can't say enough great things about Kate! She did an AMAZING job with makeup for my wedding for myself and my eight bridesmaids. I don't usually wear makeup and wanted to look like myself in photos, Kate exceeded my expectations and gave me the perfect, natural look. My bridesmaids also loved their makeup and she even finished ahead of schedule (a huge plus on wedding day!!). I can't recommend her enough. THANK YOU, Kate!!

Rubi did my makeup for a trial before my wedding. It's obvious that she's talented and took her time, which I really appreciated. At the end of the day, I decided to do my own makeup for the wedding because I prefer a super natural look and very rarely put on anything more than mascara. But if you're a makeup lover, Rubi's amazing and you'll be in good hands :)

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!

    Kirsty did the makeup for my entire wedding party and myself! She arrived early and scheduled plenty of time in order to devote enough time to each girl. She is the sweetest person in the world and made me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day! If you're looking for amazing makeup by a truly amazing person, Kirsty is the best choice!

    I had completely given up hope for finding someone to do my wedding makeup. When I told my MOH I was going to do my own, she suggested we go pick out colors and I was so lucky to find Jorden!! My makeup was fresh and pretty all day long in hot/humid weather. I use her for every special occasion. I can't express how grateful I am to her. Attached are the day she did a quick test run and my wedding day. She is the best!!

    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!

      I hired Shalisa as my make up artist for my wedding in 2015. We had a bridal trial about 2 months before and she really listened and was able to execute the look I wanted. I don't wear makeup on a regular basis (mascara and Chapstick kind of girl) but I wanted to look polished and still natural for my big day. Shalisa did an amazing job of accomplishing that! I received so many compliments. She's very professional and delivers what you want for your occasion.

        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.
