Top Makeup Artist related questions

Makeup artists charge between $100 - $400 on average, but it depends on the type of makeup you need, whether it’s the peak season for events, the location, travel fees to your venue, and any extras. For example, the cost of bridal makeup is usually around $60 - $1,000 per person for the bride and bridal party. If you want to get your wedding hair done, expect additional costs from the artist. Be sure to specify the makeup services you need to get the best offers from the best makeup artists in your area.

A professional makeup artist uses quality products and special techniques to enhance your natural look, usually for a wedding or special occasion. With an eye for color and an artistic flair, they can create any look you’re after and ensure that your makeup is long-lasting and photo-ready for your upcoming event.

You can expect professionally applied makeup to last for up to 12 hours. If you’re planning to be at a lengthy event, your makeup artist may provide you with samples to quickly blot your face and touch up your setting powder and lipstick. This is mostly common for brides who want to maintain their beauty for their wedding photos. 

Makeup artists don’t need any formal qualifications - the most important thing is experience, skill, and quality products. Some acquire a cosmetology license to offer a range of services apart from makeup application in salon settings. Most states, however, do not require a cosmetology license for those working in non-salon settings, such as private events, weddings, or photoshoots. 

The best way to find a talented makeup artist near you is on Airtasker. With plenty of makeup artists to choose from, you’ll find the right artist for your style and your budget. Be sure to read reviews from previous clients to get the right professional for your job. 

A professional makeup artist has access to top quality products that ensure your makeup stays put and helps you look your best in photos. A makeup artist will ensure you have a flawless finish and won’t require touch-ups throughout your event.

What do makeup artists do?

Hiring a makeup artist is the best way to reduce your stress and enjoy the lead-up to an event. They’ll meet you at your chosen location, whether it’s your home or a venue, and talk about the look you want to achieve. But the exact inclusions and process you can expect will depend on the type of makeup service you need - whether you want the entire bridal party to look good in wedding photos or need someone to do your makeup for a private event. With Airtasker, you'll have no shortage of talented makeup artists ready to assist you. Here are some of the makeup services you can expect:

Bridal makeup

Most brides want bridal makeup that looks natural, is long-lasting, and photographs well. Your makeup artist will use cosmetic products that are specially designed for this purpose. They’ll start with using a primer on your skin to provide a smooth surface for your foundation. Airbrush foundation is often used in bridal makeup to ensure full and even coverage without looking or feeling heavy. A wedding makeup artist will apply a long-wearing lipstick that complements your entire glam look. Finally, they’ll use a natural eyeshadow palette to enhance your eye color, along with false eyelashes and waterproof mascara to frame your eyes.

Special occasion makeup

The biggest difference between special occasion makeup and bridal makeup is in style. While bridal makeup is often kept classic or natural, you can opt for a more glamorous or dramatic look for a special occasion. Your mobile makeup artist will still ensure a flawless finish that’s long-lasting so you can look great all day and night, whether you’re at your high school formal, awards night, or a special date. 

Hair styling

Many mobile makeup artists also have a hairdressing background and can help you with mobile hair styling as well. It’s a great way to save time and money and keep things simple while you get ready for your special occasion. Your makeup artist will be able to create a cohesive look, with a hairstyle that matches your dress, accessories, and your jewelry. They’ll discuss your preferred hairstyles, and then use a range of products and tools to create your look, including a hair straightener, hair curler, hair pins, hair elastics, and hairspray.
