Flawless and Amazing
I would recommend Kelly to everyone. My first phone call with her went amazing. Kelly answered all of my questions and heard all of my thoughts. When I first met her for my trial( which was the day of my bridal shower... brilliant idea on her part!) I explained that I had some nightmare experiences in my past. I told her that I normally don't wear a lot of makeup but I wanted to look my best. She responded with you want to look like the best version of you on your best day. She got it!! She pulled out my best features and made me look flawless. I was glowing! And yet, I didn't look like I had a ton of makeup on. I also explained that my mother was nervous about her makeup on my wedding day. She has been fighting cancer for ten years and feels old and unattractive. Kelly was so supportive and sweet about it. On the day of my wedding, she made my mother look amazing. I cried! She looked amazing. She looked so healthy and beautiful and I haven't seen her smile so much in years. My bridal party was flawless and they couldn't stop talking about how great they looked and felt. I will definitely use her again! Thank you so much Kelly for everything!Sent on 09/19/2020

Amazing work! I did not do a makeup trial and had never met Kelly before, but I was confident in her work based on other's photos. She communicated very well, especially with changing regulations for Covid-19. When she called me the day before my wedding to let me know she wasn't feeling well, she already had another makeup artist lined up. Jane was great! She did excellent work on everyone, including my mom and mother-in-law who were slightly nervous about having heavy makeup due to past bad experiences with other artists. Jane enhanced everyone's natural beauty. She was kind and fit in very well to the morning's festivities. Thank you for making me feel beautiful, but still like myself on my wedding day!Sent on 11/07/2020
Makeup New England's reply:Baileigh, I was so sad to not be the one to work with you.

Amazing Makeup and Service!!
I searched for a while to find a reasonable makeup artist for my wedding day. What first drew me to KellyFord Makeup was the quality of her work! After reaching out to Kelly, she replied almost instantly, quoted me prices, and set up an online portal for the contract. It was so easy to book with Kelly because everything was done online- no headaches of signing and scanning contracts, etc. Her responsiveness was amazing, and she even set up our makeup schedule for the morning-of 8 months before the big day! I scheduled my trial with Kelly in January, but had to change it due to another conflict. Kelly was super flexible and responsible yet again! Kelly definitely takes pride in her work and makes it clear that she likes to stay on schedule- music to this type-A bride's ears :-)! On the day-of, Kelly arrives early (along with another artist) and both worked diligently for 4 hours straight! Both Kelly and Natalie were easy going, happy, calm, and made the morning so wonderful! The bridesmaids were all happy with their service and I was thrilled with how my makeup came out- the compliments were endless! I really cannot recommend Kelly enough! She was an integral part of my wedding day and I am so happy I had her!Sent on 03/08/2020

I have been extremely lucky to do what I love and to showcase my talent in many different areas including, weddings, magazines, celebrity, T.V., and corporate settings.
Enhancing ones natural beauty and highlighting your best features is what I do best .
Correct makeup application at every age is imperative for a natural, youthful appearance. I'm happy to say that I've mastered this technique.
Each of my clients step out of my chair a new friend who is holding their head a little bit higher, feeling a little more confident, sexy, beautiful, and strong.
I’m a makeup artist and mother to 3 beautiful children.
My love for makeup goes back to my childhood.
I have been lucky enough to be professionally applying makeup for the past 4 years.
Although I am skilled and thoroughly enjoy working with clients of all ages, I find a special fulfillment when I can help the more mature client look and feel their very best.
I am a seasoned hairstylist, graduating beauty school in 2001. I always stay educated on the current trends, styles and products so I can offer a variety of options and knowledge specific to my individual clients needs.
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved to make people feel their best.
Giving my brides a romantic updo is what I do best!
Weddings are my favorite because, well, I just love, love!
