Styling my own hair and makeup for my wedding day was out of the question, as I would have absolutely no idea what I was doing! I turned to old faithful (Google) and found Stacey, who stood out above the competition with her prompt and courteous communications, stellar work and competitive pricing. Plus, she was one of the only stylists in the area that would still work with me even if none of my bridesmaids booked a service!
Stacey and one of her amazing partners Rachelle fit me in for a hair and makeup trial, at the last minute, a month before the wedding and I was ever so thankful for that! They listened to my wants and after the trial they welcomed suggestions and took them to heart. They were both so supportive from beginning to end, I felt as if they weren’t just my stylists but my friends as well!
On the day of the wedding they were extremely patient when I was running behind and had to adjust the timing. Stacey even accommodated the mother of the groom (even though the MOG didn’t originally book a service) because she had some down time due to my schedule change! Both Stacey and Rachelle’s work was gorgeous and they really want to make sure their client is 100% happy. They stay calm, cool and collected which is very important for a day that seems to go at warp speed. If you book Stacey you not only get a talented and passionate stylist but you also get a shoulder to lean on during the crazy and someone who truly understands your vision.

Stacey and her team did an incredible job at our La Jolla winter wedding. As her last bride of 2013, I cannot convey nor describe how lucky we were to have her. Stacey and her assistant handled my hair / make-up, tackled two spunky & adorable flower girls, two bridesmaids and my mother-in-law. It was nothing short of perfection.
Here’s why I loved and recommend Beauty by Stacey:
•My make-up was flawless. I have never looked so good in my entire life.
•She is extremely kind-hearted, funny and a pleasure to be around.
•My loose, unstructured messy up-do didn’t move all day. No headaches from bobby pins either.
•My make-up lasted ALL day. No shininess, raccoon eyes or issues even though I cried A LOT.
•She listened, looked at my Pinterest pictures and delivered.
•Fake lashes … they made a huge difference in all the photos.
•She uses fantastic products. I wish I had her make-up collection.
•My girls looked amazing.
•My flower girls were adorable. Courtney, Stacey’s assistant, took one look at the picture I had and made it happen. It was impressive.
•My mother-in-law looked stunning. I have never seen her smile so big.
•She always kept me informed.
•She responded quickly to any questions or emails.
•She was flexible, reliable and early.
•Her pricing is realistic and worth every penny.
•We had a last minute addition (night before) and they showed up earlier than scheduled to accommodate. This was such a blessing.
•Last but not least, we had the make-up / hair trial the day I went dress shopping. This not only helped us find the perfect dress but allowed me to have a polished vision for my big day.
My mother and I instantly felt a connection with her and loved her endearing, sweet and warm personality. She is full of energy, jokes and unbelievably talented! Hiring her was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding day.

Stacey is awesome, and I couldn’t have asked for a better makeup for my wedding. Stacey is very easy to work with, and they are on time when they come in to our hotel room in an early morning. They are fun to be around, and make getting ready at 6am not so bad. The makeup is flawless, and it lasted through a very hot afternoon outdoor wedding, until my late night family dinner. I also received tons of compliment from my guests. We are booking her again for my coming photoshoot, and I highly recommend her to anyone.

I don’t even know where to begin to explain how amazing Stacey and her assistant Rachelle were. Words cannot describe how fantastic they were and how great of a job they did! They were energetic and hilarious, and were able to get down to some serious business, as well as being able to put up with my crazy family/bridal party 🙂 I would highly recommend Stacey and her team for ANY of your beauty needs!

Stacey is a true professional. Our wedding was a destination wedding in Temecula, CA, and we met Stacey just 2 days before the wedding for a trial, and she was amazing! She worked with our schedule, and came to meet me and was able to transform a couple ideas for hair and makeup into what I wanted exactly. She is very patient, talented, professional, and so sweet!
For the day of the wedding, Stacey and her assistant Rachelle, were a rockstar team. They made myself, my daughter (maid of honor), and my mom look and feel amazing. I would highly recommend Stacey for your special day!

Stacey was wonderful! She came to my hotel room to do my wedding make up and bridal party hair. Her web site is informative and easy to use. I liked that I originally got a lot of info just from looking at her site. She always called and e-mailed me back quickly and it was easy to secure the date with her my making a PayPal payment. She was so nice and super fun to have with me and my girls getting ready for my big day! We all had a great time chatting with Stacey and she did an absolutely fabulous job on my Bridal make up and styling my bridesmaids hair. We were all so happy with the results and she was reasonably priced. I found many hair/make up artists charged to travel to you on your wedding day but Stacey was not. I got the air brush make up and I REALLY liked it. it was not greasy (my face is) and it help up great all night even after the frosting facial I got at my cake cutting 🙂 I followed Stacey’s advice and kept the make up look clean and classic and I am so happy with how all my pics look! I highly recommend Beauty by Stacey, she is professional, talented and fun!

Stacey is truly a gifted makeup artist! Now, in the interest of full disclosure, Stacey is my cousin. Our relationship does not change the fact that she has a real gift for creating beautiful makeup and is a true artist. Throughout my planning process, Stacey was so willing to help me figure out what my makeup should look like. She let me bounce ideas off her, she gave me honest feedback based on her experience and also sent me many ideas/examples to look at. She was also willing to do a couple of trials with me, and I greatly appreciate her willingness to make time for me despite my indecisiveness! Come the wedding day, she was super prompt and professional. She has a bright spirit which makes everyone around her happy and calm. When I finally looked in the hand mirror to see what she had created, I almost started crying. My makeup was PERFECT, and it lasted the entire day without needing a touch up. That’s what I call GREAT makeup! Michelle D. Newport Beach, CA via The Knot
I can’t begin to explain how truly talented Stacey is!!! She did my makeup for my wedding and was able to make me look glamorous while still looking like myself. She is a true artist and such a sweet person as well! She showed up early and ensured that all my bridesmaids were done in time. I was so pleased with my makeup for my big day and it still looked awesome at the end of the evening!! Thank you Stacey!! Amelia H. Los Angeles, CA via Wedding Wire
I originally met Stacey at a vendor fair at my wedding venue, where she was having a raffle for free day of bridal makeup. So naturally I entered myself in the raffle, and when I got the email 2 days later saying I won the raffle, that day I didn’t realize exactly how lucky I was to have Stacey as my wedding makeup artist, but I do now!
Stacey has been absolutely amazing, from doing my makeup for engagement photos, to coming and doing a special bridal trial, because as most brides do I had a mini freak out and needed some reassurance, and the day of the wedding my makeup along with my bridesmaids makeup was flawless! Among the many stresses a bride goes through the day of her wedding, my wedding makeup was not one of them because I knew I was in good hands with Stacey! Stacey is so much fun to work with and an absolute professional! She is incredibly patient, perpetually happy, and incredibly TALENTED! I would definitely recommend booking Stacey to do you makeup for any special occasion! Kristen E. San Diego, CA via The Knot
I want to first off tell you that I signed up just so that I can spread the word about the AMAZING job Stacey did for me on my wedding day. I am not one for wearing makeup so I was very hesitant about how I would look and feel. Needless to say, with Stacey’s skills my makeup was flawless, natural and more importantly beautiful. Her techniques and ability really helped accentuate my facial features, my makeup didn’t feel heavy and it lasted from sunrise to well into the night. If you want everyone to comment on how gorgeous and beautiful you look I would highly recommend booking Stacey. Hanh D. Temecula, CA via The Knot
Stacey was nothing short of an angel when it came to helping me with my wedding and her team was amazing. My wedding lasted over 3 days in San Diego which I had arranged from the UK and Stacey was a god send through out all 3 days. Not only did she work do my hair and makeup amazingly, Stacey and her team worked on 10 of my friends and family who were all very happy. Stacey kept me calm, was my therapist and made me smile. Her communication is great, she is punctual and very professional yet extremely open and friendly. Thanks girl your a superstar! Anu D. London, UK via The Knot
Stacey came to my home a month before the wedding to do the trial, and we instantly connected. She knew exactly what I wanted and what I was looking for. The day of the wedding, she arrived a little bit earlier with plenty of time not only to do my make up but also my Mother’s, my sister’s and a friend. We all looked beautiful. Even on a hectic day like the wedding day, she was very calm and that radiated through the room helping me be calm on my day. Awesome job! Thank You. Jennifer R. Irvine, CA via The Knot
Stacey was a great pleasure to work with. I decided to work with her based on a single phone conversation with her (as I lived in another city), and really liked her positivity and can-do attitude. I was nervous upon meeting her three days before the wedding itself for the trial, but she showed up early and was ready to go immediately. She is easy to work with and be around, and that made me very comfortable having my hair and makeup done. I would highly recommend Stacey to anyone looking for a true hair and makeup artist. She worked wonders with my hair, and it was highly praised throughout the wedding. Reeti D. Washington, DC via The Knot
Stacey and her assistant did makeup for my wedding party and I. They did 7 adults and 3 flowers girls, ranging in age from 4 to 60. On the wedding day, they both ended early and allowed plenty of time for the photographers to capture the moments pre-wedding. Stacey did 2 trials with me, in my home, to really hone in on what I wanted for my wedding makeup. She listened and delivered. Many brides look back on their wedding and see decisions that would have done differently – which I have done as well – however Stacey would still be my makeup artist of choice if I had to do it all over again. She is amazing! Stephanie E. New York, NY via Google+
Stacey was amazing at doing my hair and makeup for my wedding. I’m so glad I found her. She came to do a trial and not only was she really professional and expert in her artistry, but she was so much fun too. I enjoyed the whole process. The thing I noticed was that my makeup lasted really well – she came in the morning and by evening it still looked exactly the same, even through a whole day out and about and a pilates class. I had done three make up trials so far and hadn’t been fully happy with any of them – but with hers I felt great right away. Nothing was too much trouble and she happily worked with me until we had every detail just right. On my wedding day, she arrived right on time, and it was like seeing an old friend with how friendly she was and how interested in all aspects of our wedding. The makeup was equally as good as the trial, and I felt great all through the wedding ceremony and reception. It lasted well and I had many compliments on how I looked. There is no more important day to feel self-confident than one’s wedding day, and I have to say that Stacey was a huge part in me having that amazing feeling. I would recommend her highly without any hesitation. Dr. Nicola D. San Diego, CA
I LOVED Stacey and what she did with my hair and makeup for my wedding. She is such a sweet person and made me feel so comfortable. Aside from how much I liked her as a person, she did an AMAZING job on my hair and makeup and is truly a professional. She did a trial on my hair and makeup the day before my wedding to make sure she knew exactly what I wanted. I wasn’t even sure exactly what I wanted and she helped me figure it out. The evening of the trial she sent me a confirmation of the colors I liked and everything she used and pictures. I was just more and more impressed with her after each interaction. I would HIGHLY recommend Stacey to anyone. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and Stacey made that happen. Wonderful person and a true Pro! Meredith E. Massapequa, NY via Wedding Wire
I found Stacey via the internet after my sister who was supposed to do my hair and make up for my wedding had to cancel a month before the big day. Stacey arrived right on time. She is wonderful, professional, friendly, and very reasonably priced. I’d recommend her to all brides Jennifer E. San Diego, CA via Wedding Wire
Stacey is a great make up artist! She done my make up for my sister in law & brother’s wedding. At a reasonable price it came out great and natural. I enjoyed her airbrush foundation, and how she put on fake lashes & eye make-up. I would recommend my friends to her cause she creates the best look during any special occasion! Thank you so much Stacey for bringing out confidence & outer beauty I thought i never had! Xoxo Marigie S. San Diego, CA via Yelp
What can I say about my make up artist Stacey… She is an amazing person, down to earth. She’s a people person and is easy to talk to. She makes you feel comfortable during the whole process. During our trial, she listened to what I wanted and delivered. I wanted a more natural look but a little pop on the eyes. On the day of the wedding, Stacey arrived early. So she can prepare and get things ready. She was friendly and professional at the same time. She did my daughters hair with curls and she did a great job. The hair lasted all night. She also did my bridesmaids and they looked good. When It was my turn, she noticed that I was getting anxious and she made sure that I was calm and at ease. She kept me distracted from all the chaos around the house. What I really loved about how she did my make up, was she placed the fake lashes that made it look so natural. She also colored my eye brows which i normally don’t ever color them in. But she made them look natural and beautiful. She made my eyes pop. And she used this amazing air brush technique that made me look beautiful. My make up lasted the whole night. And for my hair, she did a sock bun just the way I wanted and it didn’t move or mess up. I kept getting compliments on my make up. I usually don’t wear that much make up but I’m glad I chose Stacey to make me look beautiful. Tina I. San Diego, CA via Wedding Wire
Stacey was awesome! She made sure that we were relaxed even when time was going by too quickly for us. She was quick with my hair and make up and it was perfect! I know many that will take their time for perfection. But Stacey was able to perfect each detail in our hair and make up. It was definitely impressive! Stacey, knows what she’s doing and have high confidence that the individual will be more than satisfied with her work. Very professional! Arien S. Hawaii via Wedding Wire
Stacey is an amazing makeupartist! She has done my makeup on a few occasions. Her versatility in style is a wide range but I personally think she’s best at the natural look. Each time I’ve had her do my makeup I always got compliments on how amazing it looked. She knows how to make a gal feel beautiful!!! Repeat customer right here! Heather L. Poway, CA via Yelp
I’m not a make up person but of course I needed to look perfect for my best friend’s wedding. Because I do not wear make up daily, I wanted more of the natural look. Stacey did an amazing job in bringing out my natural beauty!!!! I received so many compliments at the wedding! I loved how she made my eye brows look so perfectly lined and filled in!!!! Thank you for an exquisite job on my make up!!!! DeAndrea K. Chula Vista, CA via The Knot
Stacey did such a beautiful job on my make-up on my wedding day. She brought out all of my natural features without having the make-up feel heavy or “caked” on. Thank you for making me feel like the most beautiful bride!!! Veronica S. Chula Vista, CA via Yelp
I was referred to Stacey by a old coworker. I can’t even tell you how amazing the experience was. She’s so positive and really makes you feel like family! My photo is actually used on this site…. She is soo creative, she actually used a necklace as a head piece which I just fell in LOVE with… Not to mention, when I showed my grandmothers the photos… They about cried!! I can’t wait for my next opportunity to get glam’d up!! Maybe my 30th birthday bash…??!! Allison A. San Diego, CA via Yelp
Stacey is a very talented artist!! Her work was unquestionably beautiful! She totally went above and beyond what I was thinking. Plus, I’m pretty sure she gave me a bargain. I can’t help but feel like she gave me special treatment, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she treats all her clients that way. Even still, I can’t wait to have her do my make-up again! Already referring her to all my friends! April S. National City, CA via Yelp
Stacey is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. She has amazing product knowledge and is very responsive to each client’s individual tastes, concerns and style. I highly recommend choosing Beauty By Stacey for all your makeup needs — from Bridal, Prom or just a night out on the town. Jon Polmar Photography Carlsbad, CA via Yelp
Stacey is amazing! She made me look absolutely stunning on my wedding day. She listened to my ideas about the look I wanted to create and gave me her professional opinion. I felt beautiful and knew I looked beautiful too. I would highly recommend her, she is professional, courteous and reasonably priced. via Wedding Wire
Stacey did an amazing job with my make-up when I was a bridesmaid for my friend’s wedding! She had never worked with me before but she had all the right tones and touches to make me feel naturally beautiful inside and out (and for someone with low self-esteem, that’s saying a lot!)! Not only was she incredibly nice and easy to work with, but the make-up she applied stayed on throughout the entire day and never once felt smudgy or cakey. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a make-up artist for any kind of event and would definitely use her again myself! Kristine G. Corona, CA
Hi Stacey, Thank you so much for helping me with my makeup. I have seen a few pictures and you made me look like a different person. Again do you want to move in and do my makeup all the time? HAHAHAHA. Thank you again and I am glad you could be their to share our big day together. You made it a very special day for me!!!! Tracey K. Poway, CA
