Erica T. Martell, Makeup Artist. Rhode Island, Connecticut, Northeast + Destination


Erica is a makeup artist who specializes in modern, clean beauty and also has the superpower of making people feel like a million bucks! She got her start in the world of theater studying costume design at Emerson College in Boston. When she moved to NYC after graduation, she reached out to fellow Emerson alumni, makeup artist Bobbi Brown, who connected Erica with her team, and she soon fell into the fashion and beauty world there. She worked as a freelancer in NYC for a few years, and then stepped away from makeup to work as a photography producer, where she was fortunate enough to work and travel alongside some of the world's most prominent fashion photographers, designers, supermodels, celebrities and retailers for many years. But she came back to beauty. The transformative power of makeup has been a lifelong passion of hers, although these days she's much more interested in makeup as a tool for transforming the way women feel, as opposed to it being all about the surface. The connections she makes when she's invited to share intimate spaces with women are what she values most in her career. She's passionate about continuing her education and exposure to new techniques and trends—staying current with workshops and classes led by the best in the industry. Exposing herself and her art is a way for her to be humbled and inspired by all the incredible talent that’s out there. This July, after years of being worn down by her husband to move to the beach, they bought their dream house in Rhode Island—where she's now based and travels from.

A boutique-beauty experience for brides in-the-know. Erica is a professional makeup artist from NYC with over 15 years of experience, now based in Rhode Island. With a free-spirited, modern and fashion-forward aesthetic, her style is rooted in clean, natural beauty with an urban, romantic vibe that looks as flawless in person as it does on camera. Expect a sanitary makeup kit updated with the best pro tools and products, punctual and reliable correspondence, and an easy, down-to-earth, caring persona. In addition to her wedding work, she is a well-traveled working makeup artist with television, media, commercial and editorial clients, bringing a well-rounded arsenal to her work. Erica dedicates herself exclusively to one wedding per day, curating your experience to be uniquely YOU.
