Erin made me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day! Typically, I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I knew that I wanted to take it up a notch for my wedding. I let Erin know all of this when we did my makeup trial. I loved the look she gave me for the trial, but there... Read More were tweaks to be made, which we discussed and Erin followed through on to a T. One of those being that on my wedding day, she slowly built my eye makeup so I could decide when it was the right amount for me. The finished result was exactly what I wanted and I felt gorgeous in person and in photographs. I looked like a more glamorous version of myself, not someone I didn’t recognize. Erin was great at understanding what I wanted. Looking back at my wedding photos, I’m so thankful that I chose Erin and feel 100% confident recommending her to anyone I know.

Honestly, Erin was hands down AMAZING for my wedding. I enjoyed working with her every step of the way. She was hugely helpful with all of the planning and scheduling my bridesmaids, myself, and my mom. Erin arrived bright and early on my big day and did a beautiful job on... Read More each person. I loved that she convinced my super low key mom to try fake lashes!!! They looked SO good!!! I had so many compliments on my makeup and I loved that she made me feel like a more "glam" me on my wedding day and made sure I was completely comfortable with the way that I looked. Erin is super approachable, responsive, and was very flexible scheduling my trial. I realized after my trial that I wanted to change my under eye coverage a little and Erin was great when I asked her about it. She was all about making sure that I was happy and that I felt my best on my wedding day. I would HIGHLY recommend Erin to any bride that wants to SHINE and feel confident on her wedding day!!!!!

I looked like me.

All I wanted on my wedding day was to look like myself. (Well, a more polished version maybe!) I was nervous that I would look like someone else after all of my hair and makeup was done when my husband was expecting to see the person he has loved all these years walk down the... Read More aisle. Erin is amazing. She listened to everything I wanted and more... She recommended different styles during our consultation, was prepared with pictures to see what I liked and didn't like, and is an expert at contouring... My skin looked flawless and my makeup effortless. I was more confident than I have ever felt in my whole life. She blended everything perfectly and many guests commented that I looked so natural and like myself that day. The best part about Erin though isn't her incredible makeup skills, it's that you WANT to be around her on your wedding day. She is absolutely hysterical, sweet and friendly, and knows her place in your wedding day. She'll fit right into your schedule and make you feel at ease. I cannot say enough about her... Except for that you have to book her services and be happy you did when staring at your wedding pictures for years to come :) Here's my wedding video if you want to see the make-up and process for yourself:

Wedding Day Make Up That Lasts!

Reviewed on 1/27/2015

When it comes to doing make up, I'm clueless and didn't know where to start when the time came to look for a make up artist for my big day! Erin was recommended to me by a friend who was familiar with Erin's work. I took a chance and went with this recommendation. And this was... Read More one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day! Erin was extremely professional, punctual, fun, and she LISTENED!! As I mentioned I don't know the first thing about make up and I explained to Erin that I wanted to look as close to who I really am as possible. Erin took this information and made me look flawless. If I wanted something changed, she changed it with no problem and no pressure. The amount of compliments I received on my make up that day were overwhelming and I have her to thank! My wedding day happened to be the rainiest day of the year and I was concerned about my make up lasting the entire day. Erin told me not to worry and she was right. My make up lasted the entire day, through rain, smiles and tears and it was easy to take off that night! Erin also did the make up for my bridal party whose skin color ranges from light to dark skinned and all my friends were happy with their make up! Their make up lasted the entire day as well! I would definitely recommend Erin for your make up needs on your BIG day! She will make you feel and look like a princess. :-)

Beauty has No Age

Ms. Taylor knows her audience! I am in my 60s and was hesitant to have my make up done for my daughter's wedding, due to the fact that I did not want to look like a young clown. However, that was not the case at all with Erin. She fully understood that I wanted a natural evening... Read More look. She reassured me that she would we let me look like myself. I did, but definitely much better! My under eye circles were concealed, my eye lashes were full and my skin glowed. I received numerous compliments throughout the evening regarding my oh so natural glow! Erin has an artistic talent. She understands age and direction. I highly recommend her in applying make up on what I call old skin. I did not feel like a young clown. I felt my very best. Thank you Erin.

"The 6th Kardashian"

Reviewed on 1/21/2015 Jessica W

The only "thing" that actually lasted on my wedding day! My dress ripped, my hair fell down (true headbanging style), my nails chipped, but my make up did not move an inch. It was even flawless the next morning for brunch...individual eyelashes included! I chose Erin to do my... Read More make up for multiple reasons: her talent, professionalism, ability to handle constructive criticism extremely well ie: more blush, less eye make up, fuller lips, etc., and patience. Erin took her time while applying my make up and made sure to check in for my approval throughout the process, which I greatly appreciated. I demanded to look like the 6th Kardashian. I wanted to be total glam- fuller lips and lashes, a more slender nose and of course flawless skin-- including back make up for a few acne scars! Erin did not once laugh at my request. She said got it! I loved that about her. She understood that the bride wants to look her very best. As it is indeed, her day! I danced my dress really, I did! However, my make up was still in true Kardashian form. I was astonished! I even slept in my full face of make up, which is against my religion. Low and behold the next day my make up still looked flawless. My family and friends thought I had Erin do my make up again. Thank you Erin for making me look my very best. I cannot thank you enough. Erin I wish you nothing but the best in your make up career. Without a doubt in my mind, you will go far! I highly recommend your services to every bride, bridal party, and/or female who wants their make up done. A five star rating and beyond.

Bridesmaid make-up done well!

Reviewed on 1/18/2015 lauren r

Erin has done my bridesmaid make-up twice now in the last 2 years and I honestly wish she was the make-up artist working every wedding I am in! The first time was actually the first time having my make-up done professionally so naturally, I was a little nervous. I remember... Read More sitting in the chair to start out and her taking one look and saying, "Yup! I know exactly what to do for you!" I didn't have to explain myself, her idea was exactly what I wanted. I don't wear a lot of everyday make-up (the basics really), but being that it was the first wedding I was in, I wanted to look more glamorous than the everyday version of myself. After about 20 minutes, I took a look at the finished look in the mirror and was blown away by how natural, yet glamorous her work made me feel! I got so many compliments that night! The second wedding was no different and actually in that case, her assistant did my eye make-up and was wonderful too! She was great to work with and Erin was there to add input where needed. They were both so professional when I asked if my eyes needed to be darkened a little in a specific spot-- they agreed and jumped right now it! It was great to work with a team that agreed with me and didn't make me feel like what I wanted was a bad idea. Unfortunately, I do not live in the New York area so for my own wedding, Make-up by Erin was not an option. However, for my own bridal make-up trial, I brought pictures of the wedding I was in that Erin did my make-up as the example of what I wanted-- that's how much I loved her work!

Simply The Best

Erin was a pleasure to work with from the start of the trial. She is fun, professional, and stylish. She was extremely patient with a very indecisive bride and worked with me until I was happy.

Erin did an amazing job on my wedding day beautifying myself as the bride, my bridesmaids and moms of the bride/groom. I am a self-discribed "make-up" girl who wanted a very glam look - I had a very hard time finding a bridal makeup artist who wasn't trying to force "natural" on... Read More me. Erin translated my vision perfectly and I couldn't be happier! I also had many bridesmaids who weren't big into make up and she was able to create a look that made them comfortable as well. She has an amazing personality, the girls really just loved having her around. Thanks Erin!!

Thank You, Erin!

With so many choices to make for our wedding day, one of the easiest by far to make was working with Erin. Erin was the first and only person I had a trial with, and for good reason - she was amazing! Not only did the makeup look natural (though much prettier than my... Read More day-to-day), Erin is just such a pleasure to get to know. She makes you feel totally comfortable, and is really personable - I felt like I was talking to a friend that I knew for years when sitting in her chair! She did the makeup for me, my bridesmaids, and my mom and mother-in-law, and made everyone look and feel great. And, kept everyone moving along on time (very important)! After all was said and done, a guest told me weeks after the wedding "you were a bride who actually looked like herself!". What more could you ask for? Thanks so much, Erin!

I used Erin for my makeup artist the day of my wedding for myself, MOB, MOG & 8 bridesmaids and I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with her and the way that everyone's makeup looked that day. From the first meeting where we did a trial she really listened to...

I have never felt more beautiful in my life...I wish I could hire her on a daily basis! Thank you Erin!

Erin did my sister's wedding day makeup (plus 5 BM's and MOB) 4 months before my big day. Everyone loved their look from 20-60 years old! I had already booked her for my wedding day makeup as well. As a bridesmaid, I had more fun letting Erin layer on the full lashes and... Read More dramatic eye makeup. I really loved it. It was 90+ degrees out, hot and very humid. Unbelievably, our makeup stayed ALL DAY. For my own wedding day, it was most important to me to look natural and like myself. I don't wear eye shadow or liner, but I like a defined brow and clear, even skin. I have fair skin and was married in December, so I didn't have a tan to help me out. Erin did such an amazing job. Of course, I had a stress blemish that needed covering and she made it disappear... all night! The foundation matched my skin perfectly, she really took the time to get the right color. She also advised that I wear some eyeliner and shadow for photos. I trusted her and am glad I did. She did a first round of eye makeup and was totally open to me wanting less or more. She toned it down a little bit, not an issue at all. It also completely down poured in the middle of my outdoor ceremony. I really put this makeup to the test! It looked flawless even after and I went straight into pictures. Erin is talented, knowledgeable, professional, and good company for the morning of your big day :) I recommend her to everyone - so book soon!
