Natural Beauty, Ahead of Schedule!
I don't have enough kind words in my vocabulary to begin this review for you, Kelly! Perfectly professional correspondence, absolutely no issues with coordinating schedules, very easy to get in touch with.Sent on 11/12/2019
I was nervous to choose a makeup artist as I didn't want to end up frosted like a cake on my wedding day! I don't usually wear much makeup beyond powder and mascara; Kelly reassured me that her style is very natural with an emphasis on products that are good for your skin. At my pre-wedding make-up trial, Kelly made sure to give me every opportunity to let her know if I didn't like the way something was turning out, and reassured me that I wouldn't hurt her feelings and that she wouldn't take it personally; her priority was to give me a look that I loved. AND SHE DELIVERED!
On my wedding day, I felt so beautiful just looking in the mirror once my makeup was complete that I was brought to tears. Kelly hugged me, kept me laughing, passed me water, gave me a break to let my butterflies settle; she is truly an artist who loves what she does, and I couldn't be more thankful to have had the opportunity to spend such a large part of my wedding day with her (all of my girls have said the same!)
TIMELINESS. Kelly knows how to manage herself, her art, and a big group of people. I would say this was one of the best parts about working with her; she prides herself on being on-time and ahead of schedule, so I knew that was one thing I didn't have to worry about.
Makeup New England's reply:Ashleigh, thank you so much for this kind review. You are one of the sweetest people I've met. I hope our paths cross again. xo

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

My go to artist!
I hired Kelly for my best friend's wedding in April and Kelly did not disappoint! She was on time, kept the schedule flowing as it should and was so upbeat and professional. Everyone received so many compliments on their makeup! Also the best part....hours after dancing and sweating and the makeup looked just as good as it did when she first applied it! I will never have another artist besides Kelly and look forward to her doing my own makeup for my wedding next year! Thank you again Kelly for being so amazing!Sent on 04/22/2019
