FAQs

  • Introduction

    If you have a big event coming up, such as a wedding or prom, hiring a makeup artist can make it easier to get ready. It takes some stress off of you by putting this task in the hands of a professional. It also ensures you get a trained professional to get your look just right.

    A professional makeup artist can also help you get ready for a photo or video shoot, whether it’s for wedding photos, family photos, videos or a new professional photo for your work portfolio. These artists apply knowledge of lighting and how colors catch the light to help you get the best possible finished look.
  • Why do people hire makeup artists?

    People typically hire makeup artists to get a special look for events, such as weddings. People also hire makeup artists when their images are being captured, such as in photo shoots and when making videos.

  • How much do makeup artists charge?

    Makeup artists typically charge a base price that’s between $75 and $125 per person. Several things can increase the base cost. These extra services include things like coming to your location, adding glitter to your makeup, and putting on false eyelashes.

  • Do makeup artists use their own makeup?

    Makeup artists typically use their own makeup rather than the client’s makeup. They typically put their cosmetics in a second container or on a palette to make sure bacteria doesn’t get in the original makeup. However, client requests to use personal makeup can sometimes be accommodated at the makeup artist’s discretion.

  • Do I really need a makeup artist for my wedding?

    While it’s possible to do your own makeup for your wedding, hiring a professional makeup artist can relieve stress on a very busy day. Makeup artists can also offer advice on how makeup will look in photos and can choose products that stand up to heat.

  • How much is a makeup artist for a wedding?

    It typically costs between $90 and $475 for a wedding makeup artist. Things that affect the cost include whether the service is provided only for the bride or if the whole wedding party needs makeup done.

  • How do I find a hair and makeup artist for my wedding?

    To find hair and makeup artists for your wedding, do a search for these specialists and then check online reviews to see what others think of their work. Consider a paid trial run. It’s an extra cost, but it lets you see the work before your wedding day.
