Stella did an amazing job at our event - her work is stunning. She moved kids through the line quickly while still providing a great product. She was professional and a joy! Thank you Stella.
Response from Starburst Arts:
Thank you so much for having Starburst Arts! I had a wonderful time painting your incredibly vibrant community of members. I look forward to many more collaborations :)
Stella helped create the Halloween look I had been wanting for a long time, and I could not have been more happy with the results! Definitely worth the money!
On time, set up quickly and made sure to engage all kids!! Art was beautiful, balloons were fantastic. Was a great addition to our party. Kids loved it!!
Response from Starburst Arts:
Thank you for the review- we had a fantastic time at your event and really appreciate the 5 star review!
Be forewarned when booking. Very poor responses via phone, email, website, and facebook.
*Double warning if you try to book this company outside of a third party site like gigsalad*
My company wanted her for an event and we reached out to her personally in May of 2016. She confirmed availability but failed to arrive. We attempted to reach her via email, phone, and facebook prior to the event in September. Needless to say, there was not a facepainter and disappointed kids. She said it was because we never filled out a form and contract. However, she never directed us to a booking form nor sent us a contract. She had four months to make sure we were doing things according to her policies and practices and failed.
We recently hired Stella for an event and she was a thorough professional. Brought all of her own stuff and the kids were super excited.
We had hired Faces By Stella for a benefit 2 years ago and were thrilled with what she was able to do so we booked her again for our 5K walk this past Saturday. Again, we were so pleased with her work and she is so pleasant to work with. She was so good with the kids AND with the adults. I would recommend her for ANY event, she's great and we will hire her again and again! THANKS Stella!
Stella was very nice and did a great job at my twins 8th birthday party. She had a good selection and was able to turn all the boys into zombies. I would recommend her for your next event.
I was very pleased with Faces by Stella. They communicated effectively, was very adaptable with the space and time of the event. They were also very friendly and professional with festival guests and her talent is phenomenal. I would definitely book Faces by Stella again in the future.
Stella - Thank you SO MUCH for the great work at our National Night Out/Night to Unite event the other night. Your work is beautiful and everyone had a great time! Thanks again!
You put a big smile on the children's faces and of course the ladies were raving about the elegant designs. You did such an incredible job.
Looks like people could just not stop coming. I heard those stories about 3 and 4 designs on the same person. Looks like they couldnt get enough of it. You were such a sport and went with the flow.
I truly appreciate your services.
I think you will definitely have more offers coming your way from Rochester!
Thanks much for adding greatly to our fond memories of our little guy's first birthday,
I was able to invite Stella to provide face painting to 50-60 clients, staff and families we serve during our St. Paddy Day event. I cannot wait for the next party to invite her back!
Stella was at our local fundraising event and was so incredible! She was patient, thoughtful and really connected with my daughter. She was under some pressure with all of the kids standing around-she really knew how to keep calm and have fun! She did not seem stressed and was so excited with each person. Definitely worth the wait in line, my daughter didn't want to wash it off!
What to Expect
You can expect a professional, engaging and enjoyable experience with me. I love to have fun with children as I paint them, helping them to feel more comfortable and of course leave with a smile!
Are you attending a Masqurade or Mardi-Gras party? I have you covered. My masks are custom designed to match your theme and facial structure. Many different feathers and trim can be used to reflect your personal style and attire. Each session is 30-40 minutes, depending on the design.Groups of 4 or more receive a discounted rate. Expect a professional, prompt and organized experience. Be at ease knowing that you will be ready for your event on time and in style!
I am an artist who loves to try new styles and techniques and will forever be a student in the face and body painting world. I invest myself into the new concepts and designs that are requested by my customers. Being professional and engaging with each person in my chair, I am sure to bring that special touch of intentional joy to your next event! I am passionate about face painting in addition to my love of people. Nothing can match the amazing process of creating a dazzling design that someone is able to bring along with them. You can hire me hourly or I can provide the "pay per face" method where the patrons of your event would pay me for whatever design they wish. The "pay per face" is a great option for sporting events, festivals & fairs, workshops, conventions and more!
(I am always looking to collaborate with a vendor, a great way to get exposure to your booth at the next big event).
A little bit more about Stella:
My journey began years ago when I decided to begin my world of Improvisation theater which lead me finding work in a haunted house; I was enchanted by the make-up, costumes and scene sets. I continued this adventure for ten years; anchored in entertainment managing, make-up detailing and costume collaborations. My role was created to fit wherever I was needing to be, hustling to make the production one that was safe and a success! It was over those years I really realized how fond I was of Halloween and the makeup world.
It is my enjoyment when working with people of all ages and my passion for make-up that make me a great asset to any event. I am patient, adaptable and know how to have a great time!
Additional Booking Notes
I always provide everything I need for my set-up including a chair and table; I do request a 5'x5' space and a place to dispose of water. I believe you should enjoy your event and leave the details of my set-up to me.
