Michelle is one of the most talented and sought after makeup artists in the industry. She has incredible range which allows her to create looks that are soft and romantic, elegantly sophisticated and most importantly natural. 15 years of experience have developed her intuitive ability to interpret a woman's personal style and she uses this talent to make her clients look and feel like the most beautiful version of themselves.

Michelle’s passion for beauty, art and fashion influenced her life’s path from a very early age. Her journey as a makeup artist began upon graduating from FIT and working with MAC Cosmetics. While there she was able to fine tune her skills as an Artist and perfect her beauty techniques by working with women of all ages, ethnicities and individual style preferences.

Eventually, Michelle moved on to become one of Bobbi Brown’s most “in demand” makeup artists and has enjoyed making women feel beautiful and empowered for over 10 years with the company. Working with a line that has a clean, fresh and modern approach taught her how to use makeup as a tool to enhance a woman’s natural beauty while enabling her to develop her own signature style.

Michelle provided makeup services for me, 4 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls on the day of my Wedding on October 16th 2016. We all loved our makeup! Our makeup lasted all day and night and we all looked beautiful! She is amazing! She was punctual, friendly, patient, graceful and listened to and took care of every request. She is a professional, kind, and talented artist. She is an absolute joy to work with and I look forward to booking her again.

Where do I even start...

I hired Michelle to do the makeup for myself and my wedding party this past September. I can't even begin to say enough great things about not only her work, but her personally. She is super talented, warm, friendly and easy-going. She listens to what you are envisioning as well as makes suggestions. On my wedding day, my makeup looked so glamorous and perfect. I am really particular about everything too, but it was just stunning. My skin was dewey and glowing. My husbands mom never really wears makeup or dresses up for that matter, and her makeup brought TEARS to her eyes. She said she had never seen herself look that way. So beautiful.

So for real, don't look any farther... book her! And don't wait, she books up fast. Check out her website. The before and after's speaks for themselves!

Michelle is truly as good as it gets, and just did my makeup for my August 2016 wedding. After evaluating recommendations for many high-end makeup artists, I was still concerned that I was going to look too old-fashioned and cliche bridal on my wedding day. I was almost at the point where I was OK with doing my own makeup, as I have really never been as happy with an artist as I am with myself doing my makeup. I was really looking for someone who was going to have the most advanced and fresh approach to my wedding day makeup, and I completely found that in Michelle. She is incredibly professional, highly responsive, and took extremely detailed notes while doing my trial. I felt completely confident in choosing Michelle as my makeup artist for my wedding from the day that I met her. Michelle really cared about my skin - what I am prone to and what products would be best for me based on that. If you are someone who is a product junkie and cares a lot about skincare, you can feel confident that Michelle knows and works with the best of the best and will adjust her approach based on your skin. I have gotten so much feedback from people about my makeup - looked like myself but the best version of myself - and my mom, mom-in-law, and girls who joined me for makeup would definitely agree. Her presence on my wedding day was calming and positive and I felt like I was in the best hands ever. Look no further, and 100% treat yourself to a trial.

I can't explain to you just how pleased I was with Michelle on my wedding day. Finding a make up artist that I loved was a struggle, I had 6 trials with different people...I kid you not, 6. Every one made me look like an entirely different and cakey person. I was starting to lose hope! Michelle was able to make me, my mom and a few other family members look like US but stunning and natural. She was awesome, fun, professional and calming! She's now officially my go to make up artist!

Michelle is literally phenomenal at her craft! It didn’t require much effort to find a make-up artist because after I found her I knew she was the one. I fell in love with my trial but that almost didn’t even compare to the actual wedding day! The make-up was perfection. Exactly want I envisioned and above my expectations. My friends are still talking about how gorgeous it was! I was glowing, and comfortable! It lasted the entire day, through the ceremony, pictures and the party! At the end of the night my make-up still looked perfect! Besides the obvious of wanted the best for your day I can’t speak highly enough of having Michelle with you during the getting ready process. She did my bridal party, Mom and MIL as well. You would think this could get stressful and intense but with Michelle at the helm we fed off her amazing relaxed demeanor. She is a joy to have with your on your big day and I can’t recommend her enough. Now if I can get Michelle to do my make-up every day….!

Michelle is AMAZING!! Her makeup for me and my whole family was absolutely fantastic. We all looked gorgeous!! And on top of being making all of us look fabulous, she continuously went above and beyond throughout the course of my wedding day to make sure that many things outside of our makeup were PERFECT (e.g hair, dress, etc.) She even helped with the bustle!! Very Very Very highly recommend!!

Michelle was amazing! From the trial to the day of wedding, everything was perfect. I had my entire bridal party, mother and MIL receiving the service and they all looked soooo beautiful, like nothing I've ever seen before on them. All my girls were raving about her because it was THAT GOOD! On top of that, she's really cool to chat with, which was something difficult to find with other makeup artists! Michelle and her team arrived on time and ensured that we had the best lighting at hand to make colors look as natural and glam as possible. She's also quite fast too, so if you're on a time crunch, she will have you ready. I enjoy doing my own makeup and struggled with deciding whether to do it myself or have someone else do it and hiring Michelle is a decision I'll never regret. No bride wants her wedding day to become more stressful by having to worry about it and we all know we may have off days, so certainly not a chance I was willing to take! My husband was in awe when he saw me and his reaction was priceless. I look forward to working with her again for some other occasion! Thank you Michelle!

I have to say throughout my wedding planning I was so concerned with my dress, the band and flowers that I had totally forgotten all about make-up and hair! I thought to myself "what's the big deal, I'll find a good make up artist in the city...can't be that tough?!" Well I was wrong...
Prior to Michelle, I had 5 make up trials and they were all awful. I consider myself a bit of a make up connoisseur and can do a really good job at applying it myself. I've received many compliments in the past , so my standards are/were pretty high!! After my trials I really started to lose hope and thought that there is no way I will be applying my own make up! That's when my wonderful florist referred me to Michelle Stern. When I called Michelle, she was available for a trial and I booked her right away. I don't have an Instagram (I know) so there wasn't much research done prior to our appointment. I have to say she is AMAZING! When I sat down she was able to assess my face right away and know exactly what I was looking for my wedding day. It's very rare you feel this comfortable around a professional and in your gut you know that you trust them to do their best work! .... I absolutely LOVED my make up trial and booked her on the spot (good thing she was even available for my wedding date!) The night before, we had rehearsal dinner and of course I had Michelle do my make up. We went a little darker (smoky eye-which I wanted) and every guest kept complimenting me on it! She is extremely professional, fun and charismatic- you can see her technique and style is original and her contour is on point!!! What I really loved about working with Michelle is that her standards were pretty hight as well. Let me tell you if she's unhappy with something (ie. a single eyelash not cooperating) she will keep re-doing it until it's totally perfect! That's the kind of a make up artist/professional any bride wants by her side for the big day. ;-)

Look no further! Michelle is the BEST makeup artist and truly talented. She did my makeup for our engagement pictures and wedding and I couldn't been happier. She took her time to understand what each person wanted and made them look wonderful. The makeup was natural yet made everyone look like enhanced versions of themselves. I felt beautiful each time she did my makeup. My bridal party kept raving about their makeup days after the wedding.
She's the person you NEED to have by your side on your wedding day. She went above and beyond by calmly helping to diffuse a situation between a family member and the bridal party. I cannot thank her enough for this!!!
Michelle is fun, calming, and professional. I will definitely be using her services again.
Thank you so much!! Xo
