Grace was amazing. She arrived on time for my wedding makeup and was ready to work. She had good products and was so attentive to my face. She's a very nice person with a down to earth personality. My makeup did not budge and I was sweating. I would hire her again, she delivered good service with affordable rates.

Morgan and Destiny provided hair, makeup, and nail services to me and 4 other members of my bridal party on 9/10. Both ladies are bubbly and put me at ease while they artfully applied makeup and created beautiful hairstyles. They are both skilled stylists, and they use quality products. Even the flower girl approved (and she's a very picky four year old!). I would not hesitate to recommend the Behind the Scene girls to any bride.

Suzanne is an awesome makeup artist! She has a way of making you feel fabulous. She has done my makeup for weddings and parties. My daughter just had her makeup done for her prom. I would not trust anyone else for an occasion where I wanted to look my best. Suzanne is the best!

Robin did both my makeup and hair for my wedding day and to say it was an amazing experience I think is an understatement. My makeup came out beautiful, along with my hair which held up until 4am the next day! She was so welcoming and really made my special day, that much more special. I couldnt have been any happier to have Robin as my stylist. As I'm sure every bride is worried that everything turns out perfect,especially when it comes to their hair and makeup, my stress was lifted after talking to her for awhile and her giving me honest opinions. Her confidence gave me a sense of relief. Needless to say I couldn't leave without friending her on Facebook! She's is without a doubt very talented.

Last week I had Marianna to do my makeup to go to a wedding. I had schedule with her in the last moment. To be honest I was very afraid since I haven't heard about her job before or had any reviews about it, but I figured it out she is new in town. However, I was surprised about her work ethic and experience. I have never been so happy about my makeup... everyone had told me that I look gorgeous. I confidently recommend her!!!

Jackie did my makeup for my bridal shower. I kind of contacted her last minute about it and she was very willing to work with me to make it work. She traveled to my home and did a very good job! Thanks Jackie!

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 got my makeup done for my college graduation and was absolutely amazed with the results. The first thing that caught my attention was her confidence when she walked in the room. I don’t usually wear makeup so I didn’t know which look I was going for and she told me to sit back and relax and I was at loss for words when I saw the results. I had a beautiful Smokey eye with gold glitter, she made my foundation look flawless and gave me the most incredible highlight. I will definitely book Brianna for all of my special events in the future including my wedding!

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        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.

        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 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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
