Over the course of her two-decade career, makeup artist and aesthetician Robin Erb has dolled up brides for more than 150 weddings and helped her studio win praise on CBS Boston’s list of "Best Places for Eyelash Extensions." Using unique methods she learned throughout the years, she flatters clients' facial features with expertly applied makeup and skin-rejuvenating treatments.
