Simply Gorgeous by Erin
Absolutely LOVED my make-up and my entire bridal party's make-up. Erin and her assistant did an amazing job! Very professional and easy to work with. Wouldn't use anyone else if I needed my make-up done in the future.
Erin was wonderful to work with. She did such a beautiful job on my makeup and the makeup for my bridal party. The trial really helped me feel comfortable about how it would turn out the day of the wedding, too. I just got my pictures back and I'm so happy I had my makeup done by her. It photographed so well!
Erin and Julie both worked on my wedding party (7 women) and they both did an amazing job. Together, they were able to finish everyone over an hour early, but this was done without any of us feeling rushed at all. I felt gorgeous on my wedding day and received so many compliments all through the night. The wedding party, including my mother and mother in law, all looked beautiful as well!
Erin was very professional throughout the entire experience and was always very responsive. Erin has a very calming way about her work, which is definitely a good quality to have in someone who is helping you get ready for your wedding...
Erin did the makeup for myself and 4 other ladies in my bridal party and everyone looks amazing. Erin finds a way to compliment the features of each person that are already beautiful and enhance them without making them look made up. She is a true talent and she is friendly and calming on top of that. Everyone that got their makeup done by her got a lot of compliments about how amazing they looked. She made my oldest sister and my mother not only look but FEEL beautiful and that alone to me is priceless. I would recommend Simply Gorgeous by Erin to any bride who wants to look flawless on her wedding day.

Michelle, I just read this and you brought a tear to my eye regarding how your mother "feeling" beautiful meant so much to you. Nothing beats having our "mommies" feel as wonderful as they truly are. :)
There's really nothing to say other than, if you want amazing makeup that will last you ALL day/night book Erin!! She's an amazing person on top of it all, she was so calming to have around the morning of the wedding too, I couldn't have asked her for more!
Oh and for those of you out there that are criers like me - the makeup stays on flawlessly!!! I cried ALL day and I swear my makeup still looked Amazing at 1am the next...
Erin has a very calming demeanor which is great leading up to the wedding, but invaluable on your wedding day. My whole bridal party commented on it. Her skills are tremendous, not only did I feel gorgeous, so did the 9 women in the bridal party with ages ranging from 7-70! Erin and her assistant traveled from CT to NY for the wedding day and were at the salon set up and ready to go before we even arrived. They finished an 1 1/2hrs early without ever rushing. They listened and were open to suggestions from the bridal party and everyone left happy! I would absolutely recommend Simply Gorgeous by Erin not only for your wedding, but for any occassion where you want to look your best!
The make-up looked beautiful. I never wear make-up so I was unsure about getting it done because I didn't want to look "overdone." It looked so natural and came out great in the photos.
Everyone looked so beautiful!!!!! It was very convenient having her come to the house...it really was a huge help to make sure everyone was ready on time. They were very flexable, I had to change the time because my photographers were getting there earlier than I thought, and they were very accommodating. It was amazing to see how beautiful everyone looked. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
I had Julie for my wedding makeup. I think everyone in my wedding looked flawless. I was extremely worried because I have acne. I was worried that she wouldn't be able to cover it the way i wanted it to be. Julie did an amazing job and made my pesty pimples disappear.
So happy with these girls!! Beautiful makeup for myself and wedding party!!! Very professional and amazing job. So happy I used them for my wedding makeup :)
Erin was truly a pleasure to work with for my wedding day. She is professional, warm and very talented. Within a few minutues of meeting her at my trial, I knew I wanted to work with her. She was very welcoming and really listened to how I wanted to look on my big day. In the end, we made a few small changes to my original trial and the end result was gorgeous- absolutely perfect! My makeup looked fantastic all day long. I received many compliments and would absolutely recommend Erin one hundred times over!!
Simply Gorgeous by Erin was outstanding!
My trial went amazing. She emailed me back swiftly when I had concerns about covering up some tanlines. She is so incredibly knowledgeable. I even changed the time for her to arrive at my house (at 6:30am!!) to do make up for me and 4 other girls less than a week before the wedding. She did it all willingly, happily, and professionally. To me, you cannot put a price on feeling exceptionally beautiful ALL day on the most important day of your life. And when I say ALL day, I mean my make up didn't smudge or run from 10:00am til 11:00pm. I just cannot say enough about Erin. She is fabulous!
Erin was great, the makeup looked wonderful, I got so many compliments on it! She was friendly and professional and I would love to work with her again in the future and would definitely recommend her to other brides.
Erin was amazing since our very first email correspondence. She was professional and friendly, and was timely in her responses (Something that seems easy to come by with wedding professionals, but in fact is not.) She had a way about her that made me feel at ease with my decision to book a trial with her. Upon meeting Erin, she exuded style, warmth and expertise. I knew within 5 minutes of being in her presence that I wanted her to do the makeup for me and my girls on my wedding day. Once I looked in the mirror upon completion of my trial, my decision was solidified times 10! She absolutely nailled the "Old Hollywood Glam" look that I was going for. I saw my fiance shortly after leaving my trial, and he was floored! I still left looking like myself, but Erin was able to play up my features and transform me into a glamorous bride-to-be! I also left feeling like I had made a lifelong friend. My makeup, my mothers' makeup and my bridal party's makeup the day of our wedding,on March 25, 2011 was incredible! Each girl looked absolutely gorgeous! I have never received so many compliiments as I did that day (and still do 4 months later!) Everyone asks the same question..."Who did your makeup?! I need to and want to know!" I have since referred Simply Gorgeous by Erin to everyone looking for a makeup artist, and will continue to do so in the future!
As a Mother of the Bride, I thought using a makeup artist was only for the young. Erin made me feel so relaxed and comfortable with it...she was such a happy, friendly person. She kept us all laughing through the day. I have some health issues that are obvious in my skin. Her techniques and skill made me look 20 years younger and healthy again!!! I walked into her wedding feeling joyous, health and energized - it made my day!!
Erin made me feel like a superstar on my wedding day. From my request for "lashes for miles" to "flawless looking skin" she listened and executed my vision perfectly. I am so happy with the way my makeup looked for my wedding, I would recommend Erin to anyone I know if you want to look perfect on your wedding day!
Erin has done my make-up for several occasions (weddings, special events, night-on-the-town, etc) and it is always flawlessly beautiful. I will continue to use her in the future and highly recommend her to my friends, family, or anyone who needs a talented & professional make-up artist for any occasion.
For being a person that doesnt wear much makeup she knew exactly how to beautify me so I'd feel comfortable, beautiful, and confident. Erin has such great talent and is an amazing artist- she cares about not only making you look amazing but she shows a true care for people and her clients. Connection for me is a great thing...Simply Gorgeous by Erin would be the first I'd ever recommend for any event!!! Amazing! Great attitude, great service, and is very professional!!!
I was so happy to have found Erin! Not only did she do a fabulous job on my makeup for my wedding, she has also been great to do business with. I have been lucky enough to work with her at my studio where she hosted workshops that taught clients how to feel confident with their makeup and technique. She is down to earth and professional, and listens to your needs. I highly recommend Erin to anyone looking for a talented makeup artist for your next event.
Very professional and friendly !!! Highly Recommended
Always a pleasure to work with.
Hands down one of the best makeup artists we know. Erin is an amazing person who adds a level of comfort to the room:) Erin is an amazing choice for your wedding. She did the make up for our wedding!!
Erin does everything in her title, makes you "simply gorgeous" for your wedding day. Not only does she do an incredible job, she is a great pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to any of my brides and models when getting married or building their portfolio. If you are in need of a MUA for your wedding, do yourself a favor and book Erin.
Simply Gorgeous by Erin will help your wedding day be very special.
1. Do your research and compare not only prices but the over all feeling you get when speaking with the artist:
* Did the artist or receptionist respond within 24 hours or less?
* Were they friendly or were you treated like just another client?
* Did they take the time to make you feel comfortable with your final look?
* Did you have a good connection with them?
2. Make sure that not only is the makeup artist talented and meets your requirements on technique and application but also that she or he does business in a professional manner. There are talented artists all around you but not all of them are as business savvy. This is a huge day and each decision counts.
3. Make sure the artist is on time for your trial and responds when they say they will. If they can't be counted on for these things, they may not be dependable for the wedding day.
4. Like them as an individual! The artist is going to be around you for at least a few hours on a day that you're excited but also may be nervous - the artist should help calm you and only add a pleasant vibe to your day.
