I used Touch of Blush Beauty for the makeup for my son's wedding. It was the first time I ever had someone else do my makeup. I did not know what to expect. I was THRILLED with the results. Brittany did a fantastic job!! I had SO many compliments. (I was the mother of the groom.) She responded almost immediately to my online questions before hand. She arrived promptly. (I LOVED that she came to my house.) She had everything she needed. She determined exactly what makeup to apply. She was very friendly and professional and made me feel comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Wish she could do my makeup ever day for me! Thank you, Brittany!!

I had a pretty specific look in mind for my event, and the final product reflected that very well--Katie was very attentive to detail. She also considered my skin type (combination) before using products on my face. Overall, the application was flawless and long-lasting-- I only had to touch up twice with oil blotting sheets in the entire night! Also, the price is extremely reasonable. She doesn't even charge for false lashes. For $40, and the quality and attentiveness Katie offers, I'd recommend her over the makeup artists in the Ulta/Sephora/MAC stores.

She has done multiple highlight sessions, multiple hairstyles and makeup for date nights for me. All have came out perfect, have been going to her for over a year now and I refuse to go anywhere else. Absolutely amazing in all her work and lovely person. Even the experience in the place was great. Very calm upbeat vibe. Also gave great tips on easy hairstyle and how to do things with my hair and makeup on a regular basis. Also gave me a lesson on some hairstyles that I wanted to learn how to do. She is just an amazing person and stylist.

      Shannon was outstanding to work with. She was friendly and professional and arrived early. She listened to what I what I wanted and she asked relevant questions. She made me look and feel beautiful but still like myself. She also did a great job (totally age appropriate) with makeup for my 9 year old stepdaughter. I was on the fence about hiring a makeup artist for my wedding but I'm so glad I did. I can't say enough about how wonderful she is! I would absolutely hire her again!

      Charlotte did my make up for a photo shoot and it was PERFECT. She did exactly what I wanted from the pictures I showed her. It was the perfect blend of glam and who I was. She didn't make me look like a painted face, but rather highlighted my features. Highly recommend her! She's got a natural talent that many don't have.

      Although there was a slight miscommunication about the services I needed, LA rolled with the punches and gave me an awesome haircut and updo for my wedding. I would definitely hire her again and would recommend her to others. I would also like to note that the weather was extremely unpredictable and she was still on time for both appointments.

      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.
