I LOOOOOOVE Erica! She is so sweet and fun to work with. I utilized many of her services prior to the wedding, not just her makeup artistry for the day of. She uses as many organic products as she possibly can which is good for my sensitive skin. I had so many compliments on my day of makeup - all thanks to Erica!

Erica was amazing. We had a daytime wedding (11:45am ceremony) out in Cazenovia and she came to the house at literally the crack of dawn to start doing everyone's makeup. I think we were 7 girls total so she came maybe at 7am. She brought so much makeup, every color you could possibly want. She did eyelash extensions if you so desired. I especially loved the airbrushed foundation, it looked so natural. She also brought her own makeup chair which made you feel like a celebrity. Erica is truly a professional. My ladies were all gorgeous to begin with, but with Erica's very natural touches they looked flawless.

As the bride, Erica did an absolutely amazing job on my make up the day of the wedding, and all my bridesmaids. During my planning process she was very quick to respond anytime I contacted her and was very pleasant to interact with. She took her time with each girl and did their make up exactly how they wanted. I asked to look natural and Erica did exactly that. We all look beautiful! Highly recommend Erica!

Erica provided the best quality of service that a bride could ask for on her wedding day. She was prompt, and easily reachable leading up to the wedding. My bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law, and myself got our makeup done by Erica. Nobody felt rushed or overlooked. My grandmother commented to my mother how well all of our makeup was done and wished she had gotten hers done as well.
I would highly recommend any of Erica's services. She extremely professional and will provide the best job a bride could ask for.

Erica is INCREDIBLE! She can make anyone at any age look fantastic. She did makeup for myself, my MOH, the mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and my 81 year old grandmother. She knew how to make everyone look incredible, and she was great about listening to what features they wanted to highlight. We all photographed looking incredible. Erica is sweet and attentive and is so easy to do business with. DEFINITELY USE HER!!!!!

I am so glad that I found Erica when I was researching makeup artists to do my wedding day makeup. She is awesome! I was so excited to try out the airbrush makeup, that I actually had her do my trial a whole year before my wedding. When I went in for the trial, I explained to her the look that I wanted to have on my wedding day and she nailed it on the first try. I looked and felt amazing and could not wait to work with her again. Throughout my wedding planning, she always responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. On my wedding day, she did an incredible job, giving me the exact look I was going for. I received so many compliments from my guests about my skin and makeup. I really enjoyed having her there on my wedding day. Not only did she do a fantastic job on my makeup but she was a lot of fun to have around. She is very personable and great at helping everyone to relax. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of makeup artist. You will love the feel and look of her work.

I worked with Erica for both my engagement party and my brother's wedding reception and had amazing experiences with her. She is very versatile and provided me with two completely different looks both times I had my makeup done by her. She has a very calm demeanor and is focused on meeting the clients needs. Also, she can work with all ethnicities and skin types. I am of Pakistani decent and was very happy with her ability to tailor the makeup application to my traditional clothing and complexion. I live 1.5 hours away from her and truly believe it is worth it to have her travel to you!

I really don't know how to put Erica's work into words... but I will try. Erica is truly in this profession to make people happy. She know what she is talking about when it comes to skin care! Not only did she do my wedding make up for me and my whole bridal party (did i mention she came to us!), she did an amazing spray tan, and prior to the wedding gave me an amazing facial that made my skin glow!!! Erica has a great personality and is so much fun to work with! You can show Erica a pic and she can make you look just like it, on the other hand you can say do your "magic" and she knows excatlly what to do to make you sparkle! I've been married for 2 months now and am still seeing Erica for all of her amazing services!!! You would be silly not to use her!

She made me look like a movie star!!! So professional, totally adorable, and SO WORTH IT! She just moved to a brand new location in Syracuse, so book her now! Erica is amazing at what she does. She even gave me a little touch up bag with lip gloss and blotting sheets. If you think you can just do your own makeup for your big day, or have a friend do it, you are totally missing out.

Erica is simply awesome. She is an incredibly sweet and talented young professional. My mom and I had her do our make-up for my Oct 21st wedding in Skaneateles. Even with all the tears, not a smear or smudge-as promised!!! I had a trial session done at her house which I highly recommend-that way you can get to know one another and discuss your expectations and her recommendations in person. My friend Jacqueline also used Erica for her wedding- she looked like a beautiful blushing bride as well! Thanks Erica- All The Best!

Erica was top notch. When you look at her website to learn about her services, it definitely feels like you're dealing with a celebrity-level make-up artist---but when you meet her in person it's like getting to know the girl next door. There's no diva behind her expertise, even though she has the skills to back up an attitude if she wanted to. She's super down-to-earth, funny and relaxed. She's very good at what she does, and is able to execute a great look just by talking with you and a getting a sense of your style. I wasn't sure what I wanted, other than a "dramatic eye that didn't look too nightclub" and that was all she needed to hear in order to give me the perfect look on my wedding day. The airbrush stuff is resilient, too. After my trial-run application I went straight to the gym for a workout and the make-up was perfectly in tact after 60 minutes of sweaty fun. Good thing, because after a night of dancing at my wedding I STILL wanted to look just as good as I did at the ceremony 5 hours earlier : ) I would recommend Erica to anyone who wants to enhance their natural beauty. I felt like myself, only amplified. The spray tan, airbrush make-up, and Erica's calm and relaxing demeanor set the stage for a perfect day. I'll definitely find excuses to use her again!

I found Erica through my husband's friend to be the makeup artist for my wedding, and she was absolutely amazing. When I had a reaction to a facial before my big day, she got me into her studio within an hour to help me fix it. During the makeup trial, she took a ton of time to listen to my preferences and make adjustments so that I would have the look I wanted when I walked down the aisle. On my actual wedding day I didn't have to worry about anything because she did my makeup exactly how I wanted and made me feel beautiful.

In a nutshell, Erica has both the talent for doing makeup and the professionalism that a bride needs to look like her most beautiful self and feel calm on her wedding day.

Erica did the makeup for my bridal party this July. She did an amazing job on everyone and we were all so thrilled with the way our makeup turned out. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional! She did airbrushing on myself, my mom, and four girls in my bridal party. I loved the airbrush effect...everyone's skin looked flawless. Erica was also very personable, which I think is important. We got ready at my parents house and it was fun to have her there with all of the girls. I would definitely use Erica again and recommend her for her skill and personality.

Erica was awesome to work with! From the moment I saw her website, I knew I had to have her do my makeup on my wedding day! Airbrush makeup was a must for me. She always responded quickly to my inquiries, and was very flexible in scheduling my trial appointment which was so helpful since I do not live in the area.

On the wedding day, it was fantastic to have her there with us getting ready. I had booked her to do makeup for 8 women, and an extra person ended up jumping in. She was very flexible and accomodating to us!

Everyone's makeup was flawless, she does such a fantastic job! Everyone at the wedding complimented how great all the bridesmaids/moms looked. Not to mention I felt like a supermodel on my wedding day, and want to have her do my makeup every day!

I would recommend Erica in a heartbeat to anyone for any occasion that you need/want your makeup done. The prices were reasonable, and the final product is amazing!

Erica was AMAZING! My makeup artist canceled on me 2 weeks before my wedding and I was freaking out until I came across Erica's website. I contacted her and within an hour I had a consultation setup as well as the day of my wedding scheduled. She's both professional and stylish and helped me pinpoint the exact look I was going for. My makeup looked FLAWLESS on my wedding day with the airbrush method she uses and looks so natural and radiant. I received compliments all night and it lasted until I took it off that night. Thank you so much!

Having my makeup done professionally by Erica Abdo was one of the best aspects of my wedding! She showed up on time, was personable, professional and most of all made myself, my maid of honor and mother look fantastic. Her work is great because she enhances the beauty of each woman without making you look "made up". I received many compliments about how natural the makeup looked and it stayed on the whole day throughout tears of joy and humidity. Erica was so fun to have in the bridal suite - I really recommend her for your special day. She is worth it!

Make up was done beautifully, it last almost the whole day and the artist was very sweet and professional however the rates for one service were a little pricey. For example to get one service done such as the eyes cost almost half of what it would to have a full face done. The only way to get a group price was if you had minimum of 5 bridesmaids and the bide was more expensive and there was really no differences in the quality or the look. This being said, it would make it hard and expensive for a bride with a small wedding party or for people who have allergies etc to things and therefore need minimal services such as just the eyes being done.

Erica does the make up spots on the Syracuse channel 9 news on Monday mornings. Erica did an ammmmmmmaaaaaaazing job on everyone's makeup!!!!! She was very flexible and professional. She went with the flow and did more people's makeup than orginially scheduled. I paid for everyone to get their make up done and it was worth every penny! She airbrushes the foundation and uses MAC makeup. My husband doesn't like when I wear alot of make up and was kind of worried I wouldn't look like myself on our wedding day. He was so taken back on how I looked and couldn't stop telling me how beautiful I looked! My sister in law still had her make up on the next day and it looked like it was just freshly applied! I would recommend her to anyone!
