Erika was my lifesaver!! In preparation for my wedding in September, I went thru 2 other make-up artists and was very disillusioned with the two other professional makeup artists work. It was just about a month before my wedding and I did not have any confidence that I could find someone I felt comfortable with. Erika did not look at the clock for my trial and did not end the consult until I was truly happy with the look. She is a true perfectionist and will do whatever it takes to make sure you look AMAZING! For example, my skin is very oily and I was very concerned about my makeup melting off just after a few hours after the ceremony. Erika specifically went out and purchased special foundation for my skin type to make sure I would look flawless all night - and I DID!! My bridesmaids absolutely loved her as well and she took just as much care in their make-up. Before my consult, she asked for selfies so that she could see the shape of my face and also asked for pics of the look I wanted to achieve. She takes the time to see what works for your face based on your face structure but always asks throughout the session how you are feeling with the look. She was also able to completely blur my sun spots and my make-up did not look at all caked on. I feel abundantly lucky to have found her for my special day. She is worth every penny and you are worth looking amazing so DO NOT hesitate and call her! Thank you Erika for making me look as special as I felt on my wedding day to the love of my life!! (People kept saying how my sons looked like my brothers, thanks to you!!!)
Erika Lee is a total pro! I was lucky to have found her when I was looking for a make-up and hair stylist for my two daughters' headshots. I was apprehensive about hiring someone, afraid that they might not understand my vision, but after talking with Erika and emailing some of my ideas, she was able to create both natural looking make-up for my younger daughter and more dramatic looks for my older daughter. She was organized and easy to work with. We were so pleased with her work that we hired her again a couple of months later for a music video where she created beautiful artistic make-up looks. Her attention to detail and dedication to her craft are beyond impressive! She never let her guard down on set, even though it was a long, chaotic day she maintained her energy and did such a fantastic job of staying focused. I am so thankful to have worked with her on our first video and can't wait to work with Erika again. Talented, dedicated and professional!
I am merely adding my voice to the soaring chorus in praise of Erika Lee. If you're searching for the best makeup artist to meet your needs, look no further! Erika is a top-notch professional as well as a lovely human being. She strives to provide you with exactly what you're hoping for in makeup artistry. I reached out to Erika for my bridal makeup - something about which I knew virtually nothing - after visiting several websites and reading reviews; hers were exceptional. I was immediately struck by her professionalism and empathy: she responded promptly in the midst of her busy schedule and offered reassurance as I scrambled to arrange my Thanksgiving Day wedding on short notice. It was clear that she wanted the best for me, which included a preliminary focus on proper skin care before applying makeup. She also helped me clarify the kind of "look" that I was drawn to, something I hadn't ever considered before. Kind and patient, she encouraged me to give her candid feedback in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome. Erika combines her skills in artistry and photography to work her unique magic. My makeup journey with her was fun, joyful, and filled with laughter along the way. Erika added immeasurably to the beauty of my wedding day; she helped me look my best, and I'm forever grateful.
