Getting my makeup done by a professional was something that I had never done. However, for my wedding I wanted my hair and my makeup to look great and Valen made it possible! After the trial, I knew she understood what I wanted, and everything looked amazing the day of the wedding. My family and friends loved my look. Valen had no problem coming pretty early to my house to get the job done on time. In addition, she offered different ideas for my hair and makeup, and she was very helpful when giving me advice about what to do with my hair (braid, updo...), what would and would not work based on my features, where I could find certain hair clips I wanted, etc. It was a wonderful experience, she made me feel comfortable and confident, and I have no doubt recommending her! Thank you, Valen!!

Cheryl is very professional makeup artist. She responds to my inquiries even before the day of our appointment. I had flaky skin during my event but she was able to work it around to very flawless glowing skin.

I was looking for a hair and makeup artist for a work gala last month. I really wanted to sport a red carpet look. From the get go, Carolina was prompt at responding to my queries and eager to work with me. She assured me she could accommodate the look I was going for, and definitely delivered. The day of the event, she met me at my sister's house where I was getting ready, and was super professional and helpful even though I was running late. She never rushed me or herself, and talked me through the process as she went along. My sisters and I had a lot of fun talking with her throughout the appointment as well. Once finished, she adjusted any little thing I asked for, and even left me with the little tube of lip gloss she used to reapply as needed throughout my evening. Such a fun and easygoing experience, and the results were out of this world! I am continuing to receive compliments on how I looked to this day! I would definitely recommend this company and use them again. Thanks Carolina!!

Tiffany is a very talented hairstylist and makeup artist. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding 2 weeks ago. She stayed with me from 10am-745pm doing the hair and makeup for my mom, sister and I. She stayed after so that I could change my hair and makeup for an evening look. She was a calming soul and I can not thank you enough!

I love seeing Justin for makeup! He makes me feel amazing every time I leave. I have had my makeup done with numerous makeup artists and feel like Justins work truly tops all.

I feel so lucky to have been referred to Michelle when planning my wedding!! She is the absolute best makeup artist I have ever worked with, and made everybody stunning on my wedding day. We were thrilled to book her for my sister's wedding as well, where she worked her magic on the bride and 9 bridesmaids with time to spare! She manages to seamlessly move from each person's individual style to the next, and really listens to everybody's requests with perfect results every time! If you're lucky enough to have Michelle there on your wedding day (or any event), you don't have to worry about anything else:)

I found Laura on a whim. I was in need of a Make Up Artist for a wedding less than 5 days away. She responded so quickly and was able to come to me. She was wonderful during our consultation and delivered a flawless look. My friends and family were amazed upon my arrival to the venue. I will definitely hire Beauty Babes RI again!

I found Jackie on Thumbtack and it was my first time using this website to find a vendor. Jackie was wonderful to work with – from coordinating my makeup trial to my wedding day timeline to making a payment, everything was a breeze. She did an incredible job and made my bridesmaids and I look so beautiful. We all had airbrush makeup done which turned out great and lasted throughout the entire day/night. Jackie is very personable and made me feel at ease throughout the entire morning. Jackie did an excellent job of getting all six of us ready on time. She even touched up a few of us before she left which was great. Thank you, Jackie!

Shannon is amazing! After my makeup artist cancelled weeks before my wedding, I came across Shannon and am so happy that I did- she was willing to schedule a trial right away and make it work in such short timing. She came on site for the day of our wedding and arrived on time and ready to go. She was professional and flexible in a tight space as all the girls got ready and coordinated with my hair stylist to work at the same time. She is an amazing artist- I loved everything about my makeup on our wedding day. Thank you Shannon!
