Stacey is amazing! She came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint! At my trial I wasn't sure what I wanted but she was able to create a flawless look that we tweaked a little bit for the day of and I could not be happier with how it turned out. Stacey had 6... Read More applications the day of my wedding, she was efficient and professional. She created a schedule a head of time which made the day run very smoothly, (she even was ahead of schedule). I was nervous about starting make up so early in the day and having it last but that was not an issue! Stacey gave everyone some touch ups before she left and we opted for the airbrush foundation which lasts all day and night (worth the extra $$)! We also chose to get false eyelashes, which I highly recommend. Stacey has many different types and they are very natural looking. Many of our guests even commented on how great the make- up looked!! I would highly recommend her for your wedding day!

Stacey is THE best!! Not only is she a true professional that really knows her stuff but she also listens and asks about your wishes.

I've been struggling with how best to share this review of my experience with Stacey on my wedding day this October (venue: The Crane Estate). I want to start by stating that Stacey did do a beautiful job on both my and my bridesmaids' makeup. The makeup was in keeping with... Read More both my desired style and wedding color scheme. However, unfortunately, I was quite surprised by Stacey's lack of professionalism. Stacy arrived 30 mins late (she did call with a heads up citing traffic-which I googled to find to be standard for that time of morning). When she arrived, she got set up and we began the makeup process. Unfortunately, because she was late, we needed to change around our hair/makeup schedule several times to accommodate. However, the larger issue was that Stacey proceeded to take numerous personal phone calls while doing our makeup-I would have no problem with a quick family call etc. (we're all friends here) but she took client calls to schedule new jobs and repeatedly said "well, I'll be done here soon", making us feel like we were standing between her and what she'd prefer to be doing. If it were not my wedding morning (I wanted to stay upbeat/calm), both my MOH and I would have strongly commented on her proceeding to take not 1 but 5 personal calls while doing my makeup! When the makeup was done, I then had to ask for several adjustments and was told it was perfect the way it was (apparently my preferences were not relevant on my own wedding day). I simply ended up fixing one skin issue and toning done my lips on my own after she left. This was truly a disappointing experience for me (especially as I had thought Stacey would turn out to be my most trusted vendor). Upon my return from my honeymoon, I left a clear voicemail on Stacey's phone (which I've reached her on previously) about my concerns and said that I would welcome the opportunity to connect directly vs. sharing my concerns in a review. However, I never received a call, email, or any form of communication in return. As a result, I have made the decision to share my experience here for future brides' reference. Addition: Given Stacey’s reply, the Knot has asked that she edit/remove her response within 48 hours, as it is in violation of their conduct policy (personal attacks). As I was in tears upon seeing Stacey’s shockingly unprofessional reply, I have also chosen to respond. Stacey's commentary was simply not true: I never met with even one other makeup vendor, I've never received anything but compliments on my home previously, our kitty was no where near the makeup, and my 'work' number belongs to my personal/work phone (I just asked that she use my other phone as my primary contact). I am 31 and have been with my now husband since I was 18; while important, the makeup really wasn’t what this special day was about for me. I took the same amount of time in the makeup chair as my bridesmaids and the changes I requested were in keeping with the feedback from my trial. Lastly, Stacey unquestionably took 5 calls during my makeup application alone (confirmed with my bridesmaids) + additional calls during the morning. My choosing not to raise the issue before putting on my wedding dress does not mean no concern existed. Stacey's post was hurtful not only to myself but to my family and husband as well. For future Brides/Mums, I hope that you consider the way Stacey choose to conduct herself/speak to a client before making her part of your special day.

Stacey and her team were truly one of the best parts of my wedding day! I felt absolutely beautiful and my look lasted all day and night! She brought out my best features and my makeup was absolutely flawless but still so natural. Everyone complimented how beautiful I looked...

She and her team came all the way to Martha's Vineyard for my wedding day with a super early call time without hesitation or extra charge. I would urge every future bride to book her ASAP!
