Michelle is simply the best!! My wedding day make-up not only looked stunning and perfect with my gown, but also lasted the ENTIRE night. To the point where when I got back to the hotel around 2:30am, it still looked amazing and I did not want to take it off. She's that good.

I scheduled my first trial with Michelle on a friend's recommendation. I wasn't sure of the exact look I wanted and met with her multiple times ahead of the wedding. She was extremely patient, answered all of my many, many questions, spent time looking through my inspiration photos, and was so willing try out whatever I asked. She is also extremely responsive--don't underestimate the value of this when working with tons of vendors. She was so easy to work with and I never had to worry about whether she would get back to me.

On wedding day, Michelle arrived early and was such a calming and fun influence on me and my bridal party. I was concerned because I barely slept the night before you would never know it -- her ability to create that 'bridal glow' is nothing short of magic and I have never felt more beautiful (or awake!). Michelle did makeup for a few family members and bridesmaids as well--everyone looked so beautiful and she was also more than willing to make any adjustments or changes that were requested. She also really took her time with each one of us which I appreciated.

Michelle is fantastic at what she does and an absolute pleasure to spend time with--I can't wait to work with her again soon. Hiring her will be one of the best decisions you will make!

Michelle Stern is an incredible makeup artist and I am so incredibly happy that she did my wedding makeup! I was told about Michelle from a friend and the second I met her, I knew she was going to be my makeup person. She listened to exactly what I wanted, gave me sound advice on what looked best for wedding makeup, and, above all, took her time to make sure you look perfect. Everyone in my wedding party who had their makeup done by Michelle looked gorgeous and received so many compliments. No one felt that their makeup looked heavy (which was a huge concern of my mom) and the makeup lasted flawlessly the whole night. Moreover, she not only did a beautiful makeup job, but made sure my skin was well hydrated and glowing. Michelle is also very fast at responding via email/phone, extremely professional, and just made me feel calm and happy the day of. To be that talented and then also have a fantastic personality is something you need in your makeup artist and Michelle fulfills that and more!!

Professional Network & Endorsements

There are plenty of make-up artists out there, but to find one who is exceptionally talented and punctual is very rare. Michelle is affable, dedicated and has a great aesthetic no matter the skin type or ethnicity - she's one of the best! I recommend her highly and without reserve.

As a photographer I have had the chance to work with Michelle on many weddings and boudoir shoots. I've always found her work to be beautiful because she pays attention to detail and knows just how to enhance each woman's best features. When it came time to do my own head shots I knew had to hire Michelle for makeup! Since this photo was going to be the first impression new clients would have of me, I knew I could trust Michelle to make me look like the most beautiful version of myself! I am always confident when I send new clients to Michelle because in addition to her talent, she is extremely reliable, responsive and friendly!

Michelle and I worked together on a classic wedding at the Yale Club last October. My client hired her to apply the makeup of a few ladies in her bridal party. The ladies were so impressed, all the others asked Michelle to apply their make up as well. Michelle's work is excellent. She is so efficient and her personality is a great asset to my day of team. I look forward to our next wedding together!
