This review is SO LONG OVERDUE, it’s embarrassing. A friend of mine sent me a screenshot of a photo of me from Erica’s website, and I thought, well, it’s never too late for a 5 star review!
I met Erica and Nicole almost 4.5 years ago when they...
did my hair and makeup for my engagement shoot. A year later they worked their magic again on my wedding day, and almost two years after that, the three of us came full circle at my maternity shoot. I can’t even begin to describe how outstanding the quality of their work is. These girls are so incredibly talented. We’ve all been in a situation where we’ve had our hair and makeup done and gone home and just felt “ehh”, and then tried to fix it and made it worse . Get those thoughts out of your heads. Not going to happen! Once they’re done with you, you won’t have to think about your hair and makeup for the rest of the day.
I have really oily skin (nose, forehead, eyelids), and always carry oil blotting sheets with me to use 1-2x on a normal day. I remember looking in a mirror maybe 8pm on my wedding day (after having been in a full face for close to 10 hours) and there was no oil shine in sight! I could not believe it. It was like the makeup was blessed before being airbrushed onto my face. MIRACLE. It looked just as perfect as it did when Erica applied it that morning. And one thing that I really loved and that stayed with me was that I had some makeup picture ideas that I showed Erica during my various times with her, and if she knew it wouldn’t work for my face, she would tell me, and then explain why! She won’t let you look like a fool just because you like purple eye shadow. Sometimes you just need that person to tell you no. Same thing with my hair! I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted, and Nicole pulled the ideas out of my head and gave me a beautiful hairstyle that flattered my face, dress, and the overall look I was going for each time she styled me. When we had our first look reveal on our wedding day, the first thing out of my husband’s mouth was “I didn’t think you could look this good!” Lol thanks, Honey! Hahaha but he was right. I looked like the most beautiful me I could ever hope to look like.
Aside from the talent that Erica and her team have, these girls are SO NICE! Funny, down to earth, and by the end of your time together, you’ll feel as though you’ve just spent the day with your good friends. Even if you have the personality of a brick, they will find a way to loosen you up and make sure you have fun and are calm on a day that can be very stressful for everyone involved.
As a repeat customer, I can’t recommend Erica Does Makeup enough. They will make you the most beautiful you on one of the most important days of your life.
