The Absolute BESTReviewed 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 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!Reviewed on 5/12/2015 Rachel K
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 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!
Stacie's attention to detail was incredible. She took the time to create the most beautiful makeup for me and my bridesmaids that was cohesive and unique for each person. I would recommend her to any person looking for a chic, glamorous, and polished look for your big day. Stacie is nothing short of amazing!!!!!
My Best Bridial Decision - Stacie FordReviewed on 10/27/2015
When reflecting back on our big day in New York City on August 28th 2015, one of the best decisions was selecting Stacie (Ford) to do my make-up. From the moment we met to do a trial, I felt in expert hands and never looked back! Stacie really help me find the perfect make-up look for me for my wedding day. I did a number of trials before meeting Stacie and her approach was so different to everyone else's - she took her time, she gave honest feedback and recommendations, she simply just KNOWS make-up! Stacie also did my make-up for my engagement shoot - a totally different look from the wedding day - that suited my outfit and central park surroundings perfectly! 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! She was genuinely interested and excited to hear all the wedding details and that is the type of energy every bride loves on her wedding day. I want to go to Stacie for another make-up session the next time I am in NYC.
Stacie Ford is INCREDIBLE.Reviewed on 10/26/2015 Samantha F
Stacie went above and beyond to make not only my face, but my day look absolutely perfect. She was organized, timely, focused,- and of course most importantly TALENTED. I am an actress and have had my makeup done on multiple sets for TV and film and Stacie was the best makeup artist that I have ever had work on me. She listened to me and added her opinions months in advance so that we carefully crafted and executed the exact look that I wanted. I will use her again and again in the future for other events. If you can book her- do not hesitate, this woman is GOLD AND TALENT. You will feel incredible without feeling like your makeup is caked on. Not to mention I woke up the next morning after a HEAVY night of dancing and drinking AND an after party AND HAPPY CRYING and my makeup was perfect. Just sayin'!
Excellent Makeup Artist!!Reviewed on 10/14/2015 Lindsay N
Stacie did my makeup for my September 2015 wedding and I was blown away by her talent, professionalism and experience. She did an amazing job. My makeup looked exactly how I wanted it to look and she is an expert at enhancing natural beauty. Stacie was also really pleasant to work with and made me feel very calm and relaxed the morning of the wedding. She and her team did makeup for all of my bridesmaids as well and everyone looked SO gorgeous. Before I booked Stacie, I had a few makeup trials with other artists and was not satisfied. Once I had my trial with Stacie, I knew I had found the right person! She is so good at finding the right tones and specific makeup products for your skin, style and preference. I will recommend her to all of my engaged friends and I hope she will do my makeup again sometime in the future!
Wedding MakeupReviewed on 10/14/2015 Dana B
Stacie and her assistant provided makeup for my wedding. I did two trials with Stacie beforehand with two completely different looks (i drastically changed my mind) and she executed both looks flawlessly. I have had makeup done for friends' weddings in the past and never liked the results, but with Stacie I still felt like I looked very much like myself. She listened carefully to my likes and dislikes and executed what I wanted perfectly - and elegant and elevated version of my natural look. Would definitely recommend her!
Best Choice for Makeup!Reviewed on 10/13/2015 Amanda A
Stacie was fantastic. She did the makeup for 9 of my bridesmaids plus me and everyone looked flawless all day. Her airbrush is light and natural looking, and stayed on perfectly in the hot August weather. I have recommended Stacie to all of my friends!
The Best!Reviewed on 10/10/2015 Elisa
I know I am just adding to the chorus of 5-star reviews, but I am so happy I chose Stacie for my wedding makeup! (I found her on a wedding blog...and she made me look as beautiful as the models she works with). She is also a calm, kind presence, which was important to me. And she is truly an artist when it comes to choosing colors. She provided a touch-up kit for me but I honestly didn't even have to use it...my beautiful makeup lasted through rain (hurricane Joaquin), through tears (cried through my vows, through all the toasts), & through sweat (dancing until 2 am)! I highly recommend her! I can't wait to get my professional photos back-- the ones I've seen so far are incredible.
So talented and lovelyReviewed on 10/08/2015 Jessica T
Working with Stacie was terrific. She is so sweet, lovely to be around and she did such an amazing job on my bridesmaids and I on my wedding day. Before Stacie, I had never once in my life had a good experience with a make up artist (usually frantically trying to fix it afterwards) and I'm so glad to have finally found someone great. I will definitely contact her again on special occasions in the future. She's the best.
The BEST!!!! After conducing an exhaustive search for a makeup artist for my wedding (held on 9.6.15), I came across Stacie and immediatley loved her work. When I met her in person, I fell in love with her even more! After seeing tons of terrible "wedding" makeup out there, Stacie was a breath of fresh air. She took the time to listen and truly understand what I was looking for, and even offered to do multiple looks on me at the trial (which is very rare!) She is an extremely talented makeup artist and really is a pro at using makeup to bring out your best features. She also explains to you what she's doing each step of the way, so you really understand what she's doing and why. In addition to my makeup, she also did makeup for my mom and bridesmaids, and they also commented on how fabulous she was! (Stacie made sure to bring helpers to keep our schedule on track!) In addition to her immense talent though, she is also an amazing person. She has great energy and is super fun, which is exactly what you want as you and your bridal party are getting ready before the wedding! Every photo I've seen of myself and my bridal party is just beautiful, and the makeup even managed to last throughout the day and night! She is a miracle worker! I really could go on and on about how wonderful Stacie is, but she made me look and feel my best on my big day, and for that, I can't thank her enough! Ladies- stop your search now- you won't find a makeup artist better than Stacie!
Beautiful Bridal Makeup and Hair!!Reviewed on 8/02/2015
Stacie was responsive and thorough in all our email exchanges. I had a tight hair and make-up budget for my wedding, which was taking place in less than two months. Stacie worked within my budget me to find the perfect make-up artist Alexa. She even helped me find a hair artist, Nyema. Both were absolutely wonderful, they all made the experience stress free and super easy. I was planning my wedding from 3,000 miles away and Stacie's responsiveness and willingness to help me find artists within my budget was a true gift. Both Alexa (make-up) and Nyema (hair) were true artists - they did beautiful work on my hair and face. I felt like a celebrity on my wedding day. The make-up was natural, elegant and polished and the hair looked exactly like the photo I provided. I couldn't have asked for a better company to work with on my wedding day. If you're looking for hair and makeup artists on your wedding, I highly recommend Stacie Ford.
Absolutely Fabulous!Reviewed on 5/15/2015 Hannah D
I cannot recommend Stacie enough! I was introduced to her through my wedding coordinator, and from the moment I emailed Stacie she was so helpful with my (many) questions and helping to organize the prep for my big day. She made me look like the most beautiful version of myself, which is exactly what I wanted. At my trial in her studio, she took the time to understand the look and feel of our wedding celebration and of my vision for the day. She had lots of wonderful suggestions but immediately she created my perfect bridal look - better than I could have even described it. Stacie's professional artistry and products resulted in the most beautiful photos. It is so important to work with someone you enjoy - she is so lovely and wonderful. It made the morning of my wedding so special. Stacie also did the makeup for my sisters, grandmother, and mother of the bride. She made everyone look stunning! My mother was so over the moon she wants Stacie to do her makeup for every future affair! Your wedding day look is so important. Stacie knows how to create that and becomes one of your favorite people in the process!
Wonderful Makeup Artist!Reviewed on 5/10/2015 Margaret F
It was such a pleasure to work with Stacie! From the trial through the big day, she was the epitome of professionalism. I prefer a more natural face, and was nervous about appearing too "made up." Stacie was sensitive to my anxieties, and came up with a beautiful, classic look I absolutely loved. (She was also gracious when, on the morning of the wedding, I got cold feet about the bolder lip we'd planned to do; she worked with me to find just the right color.) Stacie made all the other ladies in the wedding party look gorgeous, too—from my mom to my 16-year-old cousin.
Wedding day makeupReviewed on 5/08/2015 Meg G
I was nervous because I don't wear a lot of makeup. I wanted to look natural and like the very best version of myself. I felt so incredibly beautiful on my wedding day.
amazing!Reviewed on 4/14/2015 Lauren L
Even before meeting Stacie, she was considerate in getting to know me and understanding my style and how this would relate to my make-up on my wedding day. Stacie was knowledgeable about make-up and what would look good on me based on skin tone, hair/eye color, etc. On the wedding day, Stacie ran on schedule all day. The make-up on myself and all the bridesmaids was perfect. She did a flawless job and I can't recommend her enough!
Amazing wedding makeup!Reviewed on 12/26/2014 Karen H
I hired Stacie to do makeup for me, my bridesmaids, my mother, and the groom’s mother for my wedding in NYC. I knew from the reviews, photos, and descriptions of her style that she would be a great choice and even still I was blown away by the amazing job that she did for my wedding. At the makeup trial with Stacie, she was so accommodating of the fact that I didn’t have any pictures or very concrete idea of what I wanted, just that I was looking for something that would look good on me. We tried out color options until we found the ones that were perfect for me. She even found a lipstick that I loved (normally I hate the look of all lipstick on me)! I spent the trial taking notes of everything she chose for me and have since bought a lot of the great products that she uses, because I had never been able to find colors that worked so well on me. Day of the wedding she arrived at the hotel promptly and was ahead of schedule for the whole day. All of the bridesmaids looked great and loved the makeup she did for them. Even the mothers, who never wear makeup, felt comfortable in the look she did for them. One of the bridesmaids emailed me immediately after the wedding to get her contact information so she could schedule an appointment with Stacie! The makeup she did for me for the wedding was perfect - I have never felt more beautiful than I did that day. Every single one of our wedding photos looks fantastic thanks to Stacie! I got so many compliments about how great it looked all night long. I can’t wait to have some reason to get my makeup done professionally again because I want her to do my makeup again! Stacie is a true artist, an extremely nice person, and I cannot recommend her any higher!
Master of Makeup!Reviewed on 11/11/2014 Amanda W
Stacie Ford is truly amazing. I, like many brides, don't usually wear a lot of make up and it was a distressing search for me to find someone who could really glam me up without me looking overdone. Stacie does just this. She is so friendly and calm. She does a trial with you so that you can get as close to your day of look as possible (but she of course topped it on the wedding day!). She's absolutely incredible as was her assistant. They handled my bridal party of 9 effortlessly and everyone looked so beautiful. She transformed my face and I felt natural, beautiful and glamorous. I can't praise her enough!!
A gorgeous artist!!Reviewed on 10/12/2014
Stacie was soooo easy to work with! We were planning a wedding from Australia, but she was very easy to converse with over email & always efficient & reliable! Stacie was also the most relaxed and friendly person to work with- just what you need on your wedding day! On the day Stacie worked tirelessly to create a beautiful look for each of us, from 2 brides, to 2 bridesmaids, to 2 mothers of the brides! Each of us came away with a look we were delighted with! Thanks Stacie- we couldn't have been happier!
Stacie is a pro!Reviewed on 9/15/2014 Sara A
Stacie was such a pleasure to work with! She is unbelievably sweet and patient, really listening to the needs of the client and helping to make sure that every detail is attended to. She made me feel super comfortable at my trial and was really helpful with planning out the logistics for the day, helping me to figure out all of the details related to having a big bridal party. She was very patient with testing out different looks and had great ideas: she chose a makeup look that would best fit my wedding style and really brought her passion and skill on the big day. She was exceptionally approachable and kind, and even made my mom, mother-in-law, and all my attendants feel very special. She's really a pro, providing great service and excellent professionalism. I wholeheartedly recommend Stacie!
Wedding makeupReviewed on 9/12/2014 Laura B
Stacie and her assistant did an amazing job at my wedding this August! I first met Stacie during my trial over the winter and I was immediately impressed. She was knowledgeable about each product she was using, explained her techniques, and noted how my skin and the makeup application might change on my summer wedding day. Her looks were soft and not overdone, which I loved. Stacie and her assistant arrived on time the morning of my wedding and neatly set up their professional array of products. Stacie made sure to note the color of the bridesmaid dresses and what our mothers were wearing to make sure the makeup would compliment it. Overall, I would recommend Stacie to any bride - she made me and my bridal party look flawless!
Top notch makeup artistReviewed on 9/06/2014 Cassandra P
Stacie did amazing makeup for me for my wedding. I found her after doing a trial with another makeup artist that was less than stellar. She is pricey, yes, but you get what you pay for. My wedding guests told me I looked like I should be on the cover of a magazine. Stacie listened to what I wanted, was very flexible in terms of scheduling and showed up early on my wedding day. She also helped calm my nerves when I started getting stressed out. I highly recommend her to all brides.
My Makeup ArtistReviewed on 7/15/2014 Nehemie J
Let me start off by saying Stacie Ford is the most talented makeup artist I have met. She takes her time and is a perfectionist. She makes sure you are satisfied and goes out of her way to ensure you are happy on your special day. Prior to the wedding, we communicate via email/phone and she was quick, thorough and her prices were reasonable and so worth it! On the day of the wedding, she did an outstanding job.My bridesmaids looked phenomenal, and I was completely blown away by how fantastic my makeup was. We were all in awe of the great job she did. She is a masterpiece and you will not be happier with any other makeup artist than her. Stacie is also a great person with a great personality. Thank you so much for making me feel so special on my big day and making me and my girls look exquisite. Love Nehemie Varikos
Stacie FordReviewed on 6/26/2014
Stacie is a true professional- very responsive, incredibly executed my "natural, but elegant" vision for makeup. Loved the way the makeup looked in person and pictures!
Incredible Makeup and Hair TeamReviewed on 6/26/2014 Rachel A
I consider myself one of the luckiest brides to have been able to work with Stacie and her amazing team! They transformed all of us (my bridesmaids, mother-in-law, mom and myself) into looking and feeling the most beautiful we have ever looked. Everyone showed pictures of hair inspiration and were amazed at how close their hair looked to the photos! They let Stacie work her creative magic with makeup -- everyone looked stunning! She knows all the latest makeup trends, does incredible airbrushing/lashes and everyone looks natural and glowing! I cannot say enough about how talented Stacie and her team are! You will NOT regret hiring them to work their magic on the most important day of your life!
