"I was referred to Erin through my hairdresser Julie Potter and it was the best decision I could have made to hire her for my big day! From the trial at my bridal shower to the final touch up on my wedding day Erin was so awesome. She was professional, attentive and her airbrush work was flawless! All my bridesmaids, mother of the bride and mother of the groom looked FABULOUS and the compliments just kept flowing all night. Erin is such a sweetheart and I HIGHLY recommend her services to make you feel beautiful on your special day."
-- Lindsey Valenti, Clifton Park, NY
"Erin was spectacular to work with, and more than I could have hoped or asked for. She responded to all communication quickly and fully. Her contract was clear, professional, and included all the information I needed. She paid careful attention to all the information I gave her about what I was going for with the makeup look. She was on time and super efficient for the makeup trial, and she listened to and fully carried out the changes I requested between the trial and the wedding. The final look she created for makeup on the day-of was fantastic. Her work was so lovely that people added on after seeing what she was doing - a change she totally rolled with (she was also super efficient and organized, and sensitive to making sure we had enough time for everyone).
Also (and for a makeup vendor, just as importantly) - she was absolutely wonderful in the bridal suite on the day-of. She was relaxed, kind, and fun to be around. She made me and the other ladies feel totally at ease and taken care of. She was a terrific addition to the day. I seriously could not recommend her enough."

I felt beyond beautiful because of her work. Erin did an amazing job. I highly suggest hiring her for your next event. All my bridesmaids were in love as well."

“I am a photographer and I’ve worked with Erin as my makeup artist numerous times. Because I specialize in boudoir and glamour it is very important to me that women who come in for a photo shoot have trust in me and my collaborative crew. We greet women together, then Erin spends a good 45 minutes with the woman doing her magic, while I am setting up for the shoot. In that time, I know Erin represents herself and me well, she is kind, knowledgeable, attentive to details and willing to try different things to accommodate a client. Her expertise in make up application makes a joy to work with for any photographer: there is barely any retouching needed after her application of makeup. Erin is always on time and comes well prepared. She works fast and accurate, which is great for clients and photographers. I highly recommend Erin as your makeup artist be it for a photo shoot, wedding or any other special event."
