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 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 made me and my bridesmaids feel beautiful on my wedding day! She did an amazing job with airbrush makeup, which made us flawless for the entire day and night! Stacey also helped me move around the schedule when the girls' hair times got off track- very helpful! She is a calming presence, which is definitely nice on a wedding morning... I highly recommend Stacey!
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. And to top it all off (while she makes you look gorgeous) she is a fabulous person. She is fun, warm, engaging and just a terrific person. She is clearly a highlight of my year as "MOB"! I only wish I lived closer to Stacey so she could do my make-up more often and we could hang out! She is terrific!!
My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon and the first thing I felt I absolutely needed to do was write a RAVING review for Stacey. She made me look BEYOND gorgeous for my wedding. She and her two associates (Michelle for hair and Dara for make-up) were so fun and so personable. I trusted her 100% and could not be happier with the results. I just got my pictures back and OMG - the girls look amazing! All my bridesmaids have been in weddings before and the feedback was unanimous: the hair and make-up they received from Stacey and team was the BEST they have ever had. She really brought out the best in each of us. I highly recommend using her - she is SO talented and worth every penny! Thank you Stacey!! Kathleen
Stacey is the absolute best. She not only gave me the most beautiful makeup for my wedding day, but she is such a calm and wonderful presence to have around right before those big life moments! She did my makeup, as well as my entire bridal party, my mother, and my mother-in-law, and throughout a 12-hour day including photos, an outdoor ceremony, and dancing like fools, our makeup was flawless throughout the whole event.
Stacey and her assistant were incredible. My fiancé said I looked the best I'd ever looked after my brief makeup trial, so I couldn't wait for Stacey to work her magic on our big day. She adjusted my look slightly once she saw my dress, which i really appreciated, and my husband was floored when he saw me. What more could you ask for?! My mom, mother-in-law, and bridesmaids also all looked stunning. I couldn't have asked for a more professional, on-time, sweet, and talented makeup artist and I'm so lucky to have found her. I can't wait to work with her in the future for other occasions!
My wedding party cannot say enough about how talented Stacey is! She blew us away with her ability to make everyone look flawless bringing out the best in each of us. I received compliments all night as did my mother and bridesmaids. Stacey works with every age group and can work with any skin color. We never looked so beautiful. In addition, she has a fabulous personality contributing to the fun and happiness of the occasion. We felt like celebrities and look forward to another occasion for a Stacey Frasca experience! We highly recommend her as the best.
I had the most difficult time finding a make-up artist for my Wedding Day – not for lack of artist availability, but because I was so nervous I’d be disappointed and not have my vision become a reality. Before I knew it, I was 30 days out. We were at the point where my Mother-in-Law was booking trial appointments for me. Website after website I searched – every vendor on the Knot, suggestions from family, friends and former brides, etc. I loved some of the work I saw, but I didn’t love enough of one artist’s gallery to pull the trigger and book… until Stacey Frasca of Studio 28. Not only was her website informative and her gallery uber-impressive, but her 6 consecutive years of the Knot’s “Best of Weddings” (It’s now 7-years!) and 4 years of Wedding Wire’s Bride/Couples Choice Awards could not be over-looked. If I needed reassurance my vision would come to life, this was certainly it. I contacted Stacey and when she replied with my date open, I was ecstatic. I met with Stacey her Wellesley Studio just 21-days before my wedding. She looked at the Pinterest pictures I brought, listened to my ideas, likes and dislikes and ultimately put together something more beautiful than the vision I had in my head. I booked her on the spot. On my wedding day, Stacey arrived at the hotel on-time and quickly got to work on 4 bridesmaids, my mother-in-law, aunt and of course, me. She kept on schedule which allowed us to get to the ceremony on time. What I thought would be a stressful morning, wasn’t. Stacey was able to keep the atmosphere relaxed and positive and fun. Most of my bridal party wears very little makeup and I was really worried about looking at my photos later and not being able to recognize anyone. Stacey was able to beautifully accent everyone’s features and make us feel glamorous. The airbrush make-up was light and left our skin flawless all night long. Oh! And the artificial eyelashes definitely made our eyes pop perfectly. I’ve never felt more beautiful.
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 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 is amazing to work with! She is so professional and talented at her craft. She made all of my bridesmaids and family members feel beautiful and most importantly made me as the bride glow more than I thought possible.
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 but the best part was they all said I still looked like me. Each of my 7 bridesmaids and 2 mothers were obsessed with their looks as well! She is such a talented makeup artist, but was also incredibly easy to work with, and one of the kindest most easygoing vendors. It is so important to feel comfortable and happy not just in your makeup but also to have awesome people around on the day of your wedding, and I can't say enough about how comfortable she made everyone feel. 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! You will not be disappointed!
Stacey is fantastic! She made my bridesmaids and I look gorgeous. Everyone had their own look depending on what they liked which was great. She is such a talented make up artist and we received so many compliments. Stacey coordinated the order my bridesmaids would go in which was great! I would highly recommend her for any event!
Stacey is absolutely wonderful. In addition to being extremely talented and making you look beautiful, she listens and will work with you to get you the exactly what you want. I had a large wedding party and she was so calm and fun. Everyone loved getting their makeup done by her. With Stacey, we were all so happy and ahead of schedule, I couldn't be more happy with how I looked on my wedding day.
To all future brides looking for a professional make-up artist, look no further! I highly recommend Stacey - she's a top notch and really knows her stuff. I don't wear a lot of make-up and my only request was to look natural with an extra special touch for my big event. I also had a noon church wedding (7/23/16), cocktails and dinner reception so I wanted my make-up to last all day. Stacey did such a wonderful job - she was very nice to work with and makes you feel really at ease while she does her magic! 5 stars for Stacey! Stacey did my make-up and my mom and everyone raved about how great we looked all day! THANK YOU AGAIN STACEY!! I have already recommended you to my friends and will definitely be in touch for future events! :)
The highlights of my experience using Stacey for my wedding makeup: - Her positive, fun attitude - She will make you look like the best version of yourself. She's intuitive about what will look good on you but also listens carefully to your vision and ideas - She works well with so many people & personalities - She came to me on the wedding day! I highly recommend her!
Stacey is fun and professional. She really takes into consideration what you might actually wear for make-up on a daily basis and then goes from there to build a fabulous look that you are still comfortable with for your wedding day. I had the airbrush application, while my bridesmaids and the mothers had traditional applications. Everyone's make-up lasted throughout the day and looked gorgeous. I highly recommend Stacey!
Stacey is a true professional! She did my bridal makeup. First, her airbrush makeup does look way better than a regular one and is very natural, but glamorous. Girls, the airbrush makeup is really like a second skin and makes your face glow! My skin looked perfect. Second, Stacey has been very responsive and good in guiding me. Third, I have originally scheduled with her assistant who left before my wedding day, and Stacey charged me the assistant rate even she did the work by herself. Stacey also did a makeup for my mom and made her look yonger, which was the goal. I would recommend Stacy for bridal and mother of the bride makeup!
Stacey is professional, timely, and unbelieveable at what she does! She was extremely fast to reply to my questions I had before the wedding and made sure I was comfortable and 100% happy with everything! I don't wear a ton of makeup on a regular basis so Stacey was a great help in deciding in the look I was going for. She created a flawless natural look for me. She also taught me a few things about application of makeup - her products are amazing and last all day - i am constantly using her lip liner and lipstick - STUNNING. Stacey was so flexible and accommodating on my wedding day. I had last minute additions who wanted their makeup done and she fit them right in. Everyone looked so beautiful. I am so happy with my experience with Stacey and would recommend her to everyone! She wants you to look your best just as much as you do - she will do everything she can to make that happen!
Stacey is absolutely amazing. When I went in for my trial, I wasn't able to clearly articulate what type of make-up look I was going for on my big day, but she was able to take my direction of "not too much, but glammed up" and translate that into exactly what I wanted (and even more)! She asked me details about my wedding and we took the time of year, day, location, and dress style into consideration as she build my customized look. And on the day of, she replicated the look perfectly. Stacey also happens to be the sweetest person in the world and made me feel so relaxed and even more excited while all the girls were getting ready on the day of the wedding. I cannot recommend her enough for your wedding make up!
Amazing!Reviewed on 12/15/2015 Brigitte N
Stacey did such an amazing job on make up! She knows her stuff! We had a trial at her studio and she just went over everything and did my whole face as if it was the wedding. She is super sweet and has such a calming voice. I did my make up in my mom's room and she just knew how to relax me and make me look beautiful! She made me look flawless! My make up stayed all night even after sweating and crying :) She also gives you great names of people for anyone else you may need ( eye brows, tanning etc) Stacey is completely worth the money!
Wedding Make upReviewed on 12/08/2015 Danielle D
Stacey did my makeup for my October wedding and she did a wonderful job! I am one to not wear much makeup, and Stacey made my makeup so natural looking. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. The air brush makeup was really cool and so quick and stayed on all night. Stacey is so nice and fun to work with. She had her assistant, Tracey, with her who helped to my bridesmaid make-up. Her assistant was also really nice and did an amazing job. I wish I had Stacey around to do my makeup all the time. She is a wonderful person to work with and she knows how to make a bride look and feel beautiful! I'm looking forward to Stacey doing my make-up for my sisters upcoming wedding. I would highly recommend Stacey Frasca to any bride looking for someone to do their make-up!

Stacey is amazing!! So easy to work with and so quick to respond to any questions you may have (and I ask a lot!). She is very professional and works with you to create a look that you will love (even for people that don't typically wear makeup like myself). The airbrush makeup is AMAZING and flawless, I am obsessed. I would recommend Stacey to anyone that is looking to get married! I used Stacey and her assistant on my wedding day to have 10 make-ups done on site, they worked quickly and beautifully. Everyone loved the airbrush and looked great! Thanks Stacey!!
Best Hair/ Make up aroundReviewed on 12/06/2015 Kara F
I loved all my girls and my hair and makeup I couldn't have asked for two better people to make my wedding day so special. Prices were reasonable, they were on time, so friendly, and did amazing work. I would recommend them to anybody else that is getting married or has a special event coming up.
Could not have felt more beautiful!Reviewed on 11/14/2015 Debra K
I am so, so glad I booked Stacey for my big day. My makeup looked perfect and exactly how I wanted it. As someone who doesn't normally wear makeup, any makeup usually feels like a lot but Stacey made me look so beautiful and glamorous yet natural at the same time! I booked my hair through her as well with Meghan, who was great. In addition to making everyone look stunning (from bride to grandma to young niece), they were both so friendly and professional. I felt they went above and beyond to make everyone feel and look amazing, and they even managed to calm down a bridesmaid having a tantrum (thank you!). Stacey is simply the best!!
Stacey is just amazing. She is hands down the best make up artist around. She did my SIL's make up for her wedding and I was so impressed I had to have her for mine. Stacey was a pleasure to work with. She responded quickly to emails and phone calls, listened to exactly what I wanted, and delivered the perfect result. My mom, who wears very little make up, looked absolutely stunning, without looking "all made up". She made my make up look fresh and coordinated it with the time of day and style wedding I was having- casual, beachy, afternoon outdoors. It stayed perfectly through the next morning! And even when I was running late for her ( bc I was getting my baby ready for our wedding), she was calm, patient and thorough and even made some changes from my trial that I requested. I hope to have another event where I have the opportunity to use her skills again. Thanks Stacey!
