About this Vendor

Goal: To create the most beautiful version of you.

As a makeup artist in Los Angeles, I find it incredibly refreshing to work with brides.

The high energy of a wedding day is the environment I thrive in. I am driven by my passion for helping people and I hope that in the process we can learn something from each other. I want to listen and deliver what you have in mind and makeup you feel effortlessly beautiful while keeping a stress free environment. I make booking and scheduling easy. My 8 years as a makeup artist and hair stylist will have you at ease and feel totally taken care of when it really matters. See more of my work work at www.bridesbystephanie.com

Stephanie is your girl!

Reviewed on 9/30/2014

Stephanie is amazing! I'm almost embarrassed to say this for fear of sounding like a bridezilla, but I had 7 makeup trials! I'm a hairstylist and makeup artist myself so my standards on extremely high since I could just do it myself. I really just wanted to be a bride on my... Read More day and be pampered. I finally breathed a sigh of relief when I found Stephanie. She was so mellow and knew exactly what I wanted. I felt like a freaking Victorias Secret model when she was done! I got asked over and over who did my makeup for my wedding because I looked that good. I ended up booking her again and this time it was for my babyshower :) look no further, Stephanie is your girl

Stephanie is an incredibly talented, professional, and quick makeup artist (without compromising quality!). It also helps that she is super funny and kind, helped my wedding day jitters a whole lot. I truly felt my most beautiful and best because of Stephanie and her team. We... Read More had a big job to do as my bridal party was 11-people deep, a tea ceremony, and long portrait session to prep for! Both Stephanie and Dominique (hairstylist) were so accommodating and highly skilled. Every single one of the gals said they absolutely loved their work and would hire them without a second thought for their bridal beauty needs. My make up stayed on the entire night, she gave me a touch up kit, and I received many compliments about how wonderful my bridesmaids looked :) Stephanie even paid a visit to my husband's suite for a few minutes to touch up an overnight breakout. I did a make up and hair trial with Stephanie and Dominique a few months before the wedding - that was very helpful as we got to know each other, played with looks, really got to spend time and figure things out. I appreciated how much time and energy they spent perfecting my look. I was at ease understanding how quickly they work while still achieving a pro makeover. This helped calm my mind about the day-of as I knew they would be able to make their magic happen within all of our timelines. I would recommend Stephanie and her team for every make up/hair styling need. They are a joy to work with and they are experts at their craft.

Stephanie is incredibly talented makeup artist and did a great job on me and all the girls. She also recommended a wonderful hair stylist. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!

I am so lucky to have found Stephanie and her crew on The Knot. I was planning my wedding remotely and could only rely on pictures and reviews. I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found this team. From the very beginning she was so easy to work with and very professional in her... Read More accommodations. She was understanding of my hectic travel nurse schedule and made sure to keep in touch and reach out along the way to ask questions and schedule my hair and make up trial.

They took note of all of my requests and made sure to tweak things here and there to make sure they achieved the look that I wanted. It made for a very stress free experience for that I am so thankful. Like any bride on their wedding day I was a nervous wreck. But they came in with such a calm and chill demeanor that we all fell effortlessly into their work flow. I felt like an absolute goddess when they were done with me! I couldn't believe I could ever look so beautiful and it was all thanks to this team! I was so happy with how everyone's hair and make up turned out. She did myself and 10 other women including bridesmaids and both mothers! They did incredible work that lasted the entire day and night! I think the bridesmaids hair stayed so well they didn't even know how to take it down! Tremendous thanks to the Brides by Stephanie team it was amazing working with you all! I highly recommend to any and every bride and only wish I had more events to go where I could use their services! Thank you eternally Stephanie!

Stephanie and her team are the ultimate professionals. They are very communicative (which is a gem of a trait among wedding vendors), prompt, fun to be with, and are incredibly talented at what they do. They clearly love their work and it really shows. They listened to what I... Read More wanted and were very collaborative in figuring out what works best for my face and the type of wedding I was having. I was a ball of nerves on my wedding day, and I immediately calmed down when I saw Stephanie and her team. They allowed me to really enjoy the day and not have to worry about schedules, even when my bridesmaids were running late. They did hair and makeup for me, my mom and 2 aunts, and my 3 bridesmaids - all of whom are of different ethnicities and hair types, and everyone looked amazing! One of my bridesmaids is from India and actually wants to fly back just to have another session with them - she was that impressed with their work. I love love loved my wedding day look - it was beautiful and slammed up but more importantly, it was still very me. I couldn't recommend them more.

And not only is she extremely talented and highly skilled at her craft, but the products she uses are high quality and she's also super professional/on top of things, which gives a stressed out bride-to-be some much-needed peace of mind knowing that hair and makeup will go smoothly and beautifully. She's quick to respond to all emails and questions, is on time, understands well what you do and don't want to look like, sends a day-of schedule well in advance, and is an all-around wonderful person who is perfectly friendly and makes you feel at ease. Stephanie is so talented and easy to work with. You won't regret having her work her magic on you on your big day!

I found Stephanie after a failed and frustrating first make-up attempt with another individual which left me looking like a person I did not recognize. So during our first trial she asked me what I envisioned and for pictures of what I tend to do when I apply make – up myself. I... Read More told her I wanted to look “bride beautiful” but still like myself and she immediately got what I was saying and did just that. The day of the wedding she was able to not only replicate that make up but even enhance it based on some follow-up conversations which left me looking even more beautiful. She also did a very good job making sure my girls had a similar look too each other while still keeping it unique for their distinct skin tones and facial structures and made sure the make-up fit their individual unique personalities. But there are many people who do good make up, so the most important thing was that she was wonderful, happy, cheerful, patient, and kind. As many brides know, these days can get overwhelming, so when I had a little stress attack with all the attention I was receiving and the appointments I had to keep (hair, make up, first look, bridal picture, walking down the aisle, etc.), she was able to give me a little breather, move the schedule around for me so that I got a break (causing her having to stay a little later) and move me into a private room so that I could get my hair done in quiet and calm me back down. In short, I recommend Stephanie to any bride who likes great make-up and a friendly calming person taking care of them during their special day.
