Flawless Makeup Artist!!
Essie is an incredibly talented Makeup Artist- and truly one of the best people to have with you on your wedding day! She helped keep me calm and laughing all morning (a difficult task on the morning of your wedding). She and her assistant were extremely efficient, and were able to get all 10 people finished with their makeup with time to spare.Sent on 07/24/2019
I've had my makeup done many times now, and never usually feel comfortable with how much makeup is on my face- that was not the case with Essie! My makeup looked and felt natural, but was also photo-ready all day and night. (I should also mention that I cried during the ceremony- ALOT- and my makeup stayed put!)
Lastly, I want to point out how flawlessly Essie and her assistant worked alongside my other vendors, including the Hair Stylist, Photographer, Videographer and Wedding Coordinator.
Thank you so much, Essie! You helped make our day absolutely perfect!

HIGHLY recommend- you honestly can't go wrong!
I honestly do not have enough GREAT things to say about Essie. From her personality to her professionalism to her talent, she provides outstanding work. I got married in August and Essie was able to do makeup for my wife and I last minute. What a life saver she was! We were completely calm and knew that the result would be more than we could ever imagine. I typically lack confidence in general and I am do not wear make-up daily. When I saw myself, I truly felt beautiful and confident. Same goes for my wife. We got compliments the entire day and night. Which, speaking of, everything lasted PERFECTLY all night and I am a wild dancer and all over the place.Sent on 09/18/2019
I'm also not one to be decisive, and Essie was incredibly helpful in giving me advice, suggestions, and insight into what would fit me best. She is incredibly professional, shows up on time, and is efficient within the schedule. She even gives you a touch up kit LOADED with helpful things throughout your wedding day. It's evident that she has experience and a broad range of what she can do. You can not go wrong booking Essie for your special day. If you want to feel calm and confident in a time that can be stressful, she's your girl!!! I could go on and on. We love her and will be using her for any special events in the future!

Everyone looked beautiful!
Essie is an amazing makeup artist. From the moment we spoke, she was professional, calming, sweet, and organized. Our makeup was flawless and just gorgeous! We looked natural but very glamorous. My daughter and I have sensitive skin and the products did not aggravate our skin. I was very skeptical about using lashes because my eyes are so sensitive but I tried them during my trial and now wish I can wear them everyday! Our makeup was perfect through the heat, dancing, and tears! Essie made everyone feel and look like a beautiful version of themselves. She even went out of her way to make my special needs daughter, husband and the groom feel special too. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Essie is!Sent on 08/23/2019
Complimentary trial for any weddings in November thru February!
Being a professional photographer that works with both brides and models, I know the importance of having an exceptional makeup artist - it can make or break your day. Rest assured if you have Essie, you will look beautiful; She's amazing at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone.
Essie has a beautiful makeup style with great attention to detail!
Essie is my first referral when I am asked to do an event on a day that I'm already booked. Her product knowledge and experience is what I admire most about her. She makes each face she touches something to remember and is professional, personable, and a great person to have around on your special day!
