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 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... Read More tight schedule, and they were able to do makeup for myself, my mother, and 8 other bridesmaids with no issues. They took the time to make sure every bridesmaid was happy, and provided airbrush and lashes to the whole party. Stacie also was available prior to the wedding for trials for myself, my sister and my mother. She has had a ton of experience in the field, and it shows. I would definitely recommend her to any bride!

Please do yourself the biggest favor and book Stacie IMMEDIATELY for your wedding!! She is a wonderful makeup artist and made me look absolutely stunning on my wedding day. She was by far the best vendor I worked with, so skilled and talented and also such a warm and calming... Read More presence. 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!!

We all looked like the very best version of ourselves for our very special and important day. After several unsuccessful make up trials with other artists, I was... Read More lucky enough to have found Stacie, who from the very start made me feel comfortable. I am someone who is extremely particular about my make up and have been doing it myself for long enough to know exactly what I want, and Stacie worked through all of my quirks, even offering tips and guidance on how to enhance my everyday make up. She was sweet, hip, and a lot of fun- but most importantly she was a professional. She had great communication and was punctual. She was an awesome addition to the preparation dream team I hired for my big day!

I don't usually post reviews but after the stellar service I received from Stacie I had to write one. We all know how difficult it is to find an honest review but I assure you this one is. After searching and searching for a makeup artist, I came across Stacie Fords website and... Read More her reviews were excellent. I reached out to her and she responded quickly and gave me an estimate, but because I only had a party of three one of her assistants was going to do the makeup instead. I thought about it some more and decided to look for another makeup artist that did both hair and makeup. I found Daniela Rodriguez site, and took a leap of faith but what a disaster, talk about flaky non responsive and made the whole process stressful. I mean how can you call yourself a professional, and say you have a studio on your site and not have one, and be close to two hours late for a trial, then use regular mac foundation for airbrushing? Then completely ignore emails and phone calls? Hopeless, and with only a month to my wedding, which was this past April, I decided to reach out again to Stacie. She was like an angel that answered all of my prayers. She was so kind and answered my email quickly. Due to all the stress, my skin was breaking out and so I was worried about how I would look on my wedding day. I explained my situation and I told her because of my skin I'd prefer if she did my makeup. She was so gracious and said she would do it even though she usually does larger bridal parties. I was so happy and even happier when I arrived to her studio which was beautiful. She listened to everything I said and was patient. She is a true professional and has so much quality high end makeup, the possibilities are endless. On my wedding day she arrived early and had a diagram with all of my makeup requests we had discussed during the trail and even gave me bag with samples to touch up my makeup throughout the night. It was a very long wedding day from 11:30am to 12pm and my makeup was as pristine as when first applied. Seriously, all I did was reapply lipstick after eating and that was it. I was so happy with the outcome and she did such a great job with my makeup you could not see a blemish in site, yet very natural. She is truly gifted and talented, if you're in doubt, trust me you will be pleasantly surprised. On top of that she is a doll such a pleasure to work with. So in the end, everything worked out for the best and I owe that to Stacie.

My groom and I are both from Ireland but currently live in Singapore so planning a destination wedding on the other side of the world was a challenge! However Stacie was fantastic to communicate with over email, which was so important to me. One of things that I valued most was the honest invaluable tried and tested advice imparted by Stacie as to which are the must-have products for your make-up bag and what particular products would be fantastic for my eye-shape, colouring etc for all occasions, not just for my wedding day. She has transformed how I do my own make-up and I don't know how I lived without some of the products!! Last but not least, Stacie and her team were fantastic to be around during the 'getting-ready' process - fun and calming at the same time!
