How much do makeup artists charge?

Makeup artists charge $60 to $170 per person on average for a basic, non-bridal makeup application. Freelance makeup artists charge $50 to $120 per hour. Makeup artists charge a flat rate, per hour, per half-day, or full-day, depending on the service.

Common services or skills include:

  • Traditional makeup
  • Airbrush makeup
  • Bridal makeup
  • False eyelashes or extensions
  • Hair styling
  • Brow shaping or microblading

How much do makeup artists charge for weddings?

Wedding makeup costs $80 to $300 for the bride and $75 to $150 per person for the bridal party. Most brides choose a hair and makeup package, which costs $180 to $600 total. Some makeup artists apply some basic makeup to the flower girl for $10 to $50.

What is a makeup artist?

A makeup artist is a person who is trained to apply cosmetics, usually for special events or photoshoots. Makeup artists usually perform a consultation or trial to see if their skills and products are a good fit. A basic package typically includes:

  • Primer
  • Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Blush
  • Eyeliner
  • Eyeshadow
  • Mascara
  • Lipstick
  • Setting powder or spray

Some makeup artists include airbrushing, contouring, false lashes, or a touch-up kit in their basic service. Others offer these features for an extra charge.

How long does a makeup artist take to do makeup?

A makeup artist takes 60 to 90 minutes to do most makeup applications. Wedding makeup takes 60 to 90 minutes for the bride and 30 to 45 minutes for bridesmaids. Complex styles or designs take longer than simple or everyday looks.

Do you need a license to be a makeup artist?

Makeup artist licensing rules depend on the state. Most states require a cosmetology license in salon settings. However, most states do not require a license for non-salon services like weddings, photoshoots, or private events.

How much should I tip a makeup artist?

Most customers tip a makeup artist 15% to 25% after the application, but it's not always necessary. Freelance makeup artists who set their own prices do not typically expect a tip. Most customers tip for exceptional service, much like other industries.

Tipping a makeup artist at a beauty counter is not expected, and some businesses don't allow it.

Goldie at Bast Hair Salon

You know how go to a new stylist, and you don't know what to expect? Well, I have been seeing Sokhunthear and I am happy to say, she has exceeded my expectations! What I like about her, is she takes her time and makes the cut how you want it. I work at a hospital so I work with and see a lot of people. Ever since I've been going to her, I get so many compliments on my haircuts. And did I mention she does makeup too! I don't wear a lot of makeup, but she did my lashes and made my makeup very natural. It was a nice makeover for a night out. I would absolutely recommend Sokhunthear at Flaunt! :-)
