I hired Esha to do my wedding makeup in addition to my six Bridesmaids, two Junior Bridesmaids, Flower Girl and both Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom and I could not have asked for a better makeup artist to take the lead on getting us glammed up and ready for the day! I will be the first to admit that I am the WORST at portraying what I want in my look when it comes to makeup but that didn't phase Esha at all. My big thing was that I wanted to look natural and still very me.. as a girl who doesn't wear a ton of makeup every day that can sometimes be a little harder when you get in front of someone who knows makeup only because my idea of "not a lot of makeup" and a professional artist's may not be the exact same interpretation but Esha and I got on the same page from the very start. Esha completely nailed it and brought my whole look together. I would 100% recommend a trial. I did my trial the morning of my bridal shower to see how I liked it, how it held up and what changes I wanted to make. Esha was so wonderful and open to my notes I made at the conclusion of my bridal shower day. I wanted a full to see it all and really pinpoint what I liked and what I would want to see a little differently. For example, I went with certain pictures for the trial and then realized my own ignorance in not understanding what I showed her was more of the smokey eye look.. so looking back on pictures from my bridal shower, my makeup looked incredible but it was too dark for what I wanted as my wedding day look. Following up with Esha was a breeze and I sent her a few more pictures and she instantly got on board with what I wanted.. explaining the difference in the looks I showed her. To me they looked the same until she pointed out what wasn't! The trial was SUPER helpful because I tried the airbrush and a certain lip color but the morning of the wedding I went with HD makeup (because I was LOVING how my bridesmaids were looking) and completely went a different route with lip color. Neither of those changes threw Esha off at all. She worked efficiently and was extremely calm and laid back the entire morning.. the high emotions of the morning didn't fluster her at all. For all my bridesmaids she made sure I told each of them that if they didn't like something, to speak up and she would very happily change it because her main concern was us feeling comfortable in our looks, not being personally offended by someone wanting to change something. From the mothers to bridesmaids, to my young junior bridesmaids and tiny flower girl.. she knew how to do each age and skin complexion without fail. I have to thank Esha for her patience with me because the week of the wedding I had a "panicked bride" moment and she handled it all with poise and reassurance that all was good. It rained on my wedding day (ALL day), there were tears (but she teaches you how to cry and not ruin your makeup, bonus!!) and I sweated my tush off on the dance floor and then continued the party downtown Annapolis and let me tell you this.. my makeup was as flawless at 3:00 in the morning as it was at 12 noon when my look was complete... just as Esha promised it would be! Cannot thank you enough for getting me wedding-day-ready and all 11 of the best women in my life looking and feeling amazing! You've got my recommendation and I look forward to having an excuse to hire you to do my makeup again in the future! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! When the first two words that come out of your groom's mouth when he sees you is "Oh Shit".. you know you're looking drop dead GORGEOUS! Wouldn't have happened without you, Esha!! I looked like a bride and felt like my true self. That was a major win in my book!
