The Absolute BEST

Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Dagmara P

I will start off by saying that I have NEVER liked any professional makeup I've had done; so, naturally, I was dreading getting my makeup done for my wedding. Then I met Stacie. She is out of this world incredible! I am in love with her work! During my trial, Stacie took the... Read More time to listen to me and really get a sense of my style, who I am and what type of look I was going for. She asked to see pictures of my dress and went to work. The look she created was out of this world amazing. She took what I had wanted and gave it some edge (with my permission) to really go with my dress. It was like a stunning work of art. On my wedding day, Stacie did the makeup for my mom, my 3 bridesmaids and me. She arrived just before scheduled and made sure she was set up and ready to go at our agreed upon start time. She transitioned seamlessly from person to person and kept us on schedule. I think this is so important in someone who you're entrusting on such a special day. I never once had to look at the time because I knew I could count on Stacie to do her job and I did not have to worry about anything she was in charge of. She took her time, never rushed and made us all look incredible. I have never felt so beautiful in my life (and this is pre-hair and pre-dress). The makeup was flawless! For both my mom and I to love our makeup is saying a lot. I will be the first to admit that when it comes to this department we are not easy to please but surprisingly, with Stacie we were just that! My mom and I will 100% use Stacie again for any major events that require makeup. She is so passionate and good at what she does that I have full confidence that the next time I go, I'll just show her what I'm wearing and let her do her thing. She is punctual, dependable, easily reached, and so incredibly warm and friendly. She made everyone so happy and comfortable that morning. Love love loved working with Stacie and cannot say enough amazing things about her!! I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who wants to look like their most beautiful self on their wedding day!


Better than I could have imagined!

Amazing is not enough of a word. I have been in a ton of weddings and have had my makeup done many times, and I have to say that Stacie Ford was the best I have ever experienced! I think the biggest difference between Stacie and other makeup artists is that she genuinely... Read More cares. She explains what she's doing every step of the way and constantly shows you her progress to make sure that you love it. She wants you to look beautiful and be happy. It's not another day to her, it's your wedding day and she is a huge part of it. Stacie and her team were unbelievable to work with. I was a bride who wanted a natural and editorial look and Stacie was able to make my dream in to a reality. She was calming and confident and was a huge help in recommending what would work best with my skin, dress and overall "wedding theme." The day of the wedding, Stacie was pure class. As stressful as the day can get, she remained a calming force and handled all of my bridal party with ease. Everyone looked beautiful and what's even better, their makeup lasted all day. Stacie made me feel like a bride that should have been in a magazine or walking the runway. It was better than anything I could have imagined. I definitely will be using Stacie for all of my events!

I absolutely loved working with Stacie! She is so talented and simply a wonderful person. Stacie and her team glammed up my 7 bridesmaids, my Mom and I on my wedding day and we all looked and felt so gorgeous! I had two trials with Stacie - each trial was for a completely... Read More different look, both of which I loved. Stacie was super receptive to the fact that I definitely wanted to look glamorus, but I also wanted to look like myself. I typically do not wear a lot of makeup and Stacie did an outstanding job of suggesting colors and products that would work well with my skin type. I can't tell you how thrilled I was on my wedding day. Seeing myself all done up literally took my breath away and the makeup lasted all day and well through the end my after-party! I love how sweet and calm Stacie was throughout the entire process and I truly hope I have another opportunity to work with her in the future! If you are considering working with Stacie, do it!!! You will be so happy you did! I would also reach out right away, she books up very quickly!

Stacie did my makeup for my wedding last weekend, along with the makeup for my 6 bridesmaids, mom, and mother in law. Every lady looked stunning and like the best version of herself. My makeup was exactly what I wanted it to be - glowing, natural and effortless. Through my trial... Read More and ongoing conversations, Stacie learned what I like and didn't like and applied that with her years and years of experience and expertise to deliver outstanding quality makeup artistry. The thing that may be mots telling of her talent is that my mother in law got her makeup done after maybe 40 years of not wearing an ounce of makeup. I was nervous that she'd find her makeup jarring but it was in fact the exact opposite - she was so happy, and I thought she looked like just a more polished version of herself. Thank you Stacie for making me and my bridal party all feel like a million bucks on my wedding day! Hire Stacie!! You will not regret it.

I could not recommend Stacie more highly.

HIRE HER. Stacie is timely, sweet, talented, and a perfectionist.

Highly, HIGHLY recommend her as hiring her was one of the best decisions I made during the entire wedding planning process (and I had done trials with several others first!)

I had two makeup trials before I found Stacie and I'm so, so lucky I found her. Stacie has the incredible ability to make you look like yourself but the absolute best version of yourself. Everyone at my wedding told me exactly that and most importantly, I felt so beautiful and... Read More comfortable in my own skin. Unlike other artists, Stacie takes just as much time to prep your skin and make sure it's glowing as she does on the makeup. She's incredibly detail oriented and takes her time to ensure perfection. She had everything written down from our trial with the exact custom lip color she made for me to the combination of eye shadows she used. How you look and feel on your wedding day is so important- hire Stacie, she will not disappoint.

I recently worked with Stacie and her team for my wedding on Oct 1st in NYC and I could not have been happier with the results! Stacie is extremely talented and very detail oriented. She came early with two other make up artists, and they got to work right away. We were on a...

They took the time to make sure every bridesmaid was happy, and provided airbrush and lashes to the whole party.

She stayed longer to make sure my makeup looked right, asked the photographer to see a picture of me on the camera to make sure I looked great in the photos...just everything about her was so on-point and honestly I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist! She will take time and listen to you, work with you beforehand to get the look you want, and then on the day-of will tweak it as necessary but still accomplish the look and feel you guys came up with. She's on such a different level, and the price is more than worth it. You're going to take about a bazillion pictures that day and you want to look the most amazing you've ever looked (trust me!). And she'll make you look like that—like you, just kicked up a couple notches...and the best part is, the makeup lasts ALL day. You'll be so happy to have Stacie with you on your big day. Thank you so much for making mine so special, Stacie!! You and your team are truly the best!!!

Simply put, Stacie Ford is absolutely the best at what she does. I am so amazed at the look she created for me, the two mothers, and my bridesmaid. I met Stacie first for my trial, and everyone I shared the pictures with agreed - Stacie's natural look that lit up my eyes truly... Read More brought out the best in me. On the day of the ceremony, Stacie stayed with me for touch-ups, as photographs were before the ceremony, and helped coach me through them for how I would photograph best. She wasn't wrong - my face stands out beautifully against my detailed Lazaro dress. I was fearful that my face would be washed out, but in every picture I am bright and feel beautiful. Many guests commented that it was the most makeup they'd ever seen me wear, but that I wore it well and looked gorgeous. It was such a great feeling leaving my trial and knowing Stacie was "the one," and an even better feeling to look through photos of the day and know that the look she had created for me was absolutely perfect. In fact, when we shot some additional pictures the following day, I could tell such a difference that I was disappointed I hadn't scheduled another touch-up! I cannot recommend Stacie enough. She is personable, kind, helpful, and supremely talented! Thank you Stacie for all your work for my wedding!!
