Essie is amazing!

I had the best experience using Essie Cohen for makeup for my wedding. All of my bridesmaids LOVED, as did I, and we all loved spending time with her the day of our wedding. She does an amazingly beautiful yet natural look and the EYES!! So good. I got SO many compliments on how perfect it was. Not to mention, throughout all my crying, my makeup stayed perfect. Couldn't recommend her enough!!

Perfect Wedding Makeup

I would choose Essie over and over again! She has perfected the elevated natural look that I wanted for my wedding day. She made my bridesmaids and I look (and feel) beautiful with makeup that lasted all night! It is obvious that she has many years of experience under her belt. She is extremely professional and personable. Her and her team made things so easy for me for a stress-free wedding morning!
