What our clients are saying


Vaeda Mann

Miss Mississippi Teen USA
– 1st Runner-Up Miss Teen USA 2014

From the moment I walked into Eskew Consulting studio honestly having no idea what ‘image consulting’ meant or what our meetings would hold, I felt an immediate sense of warmth, comfort, and welcoming. Brittney didn’t just TELL me that pageantry is a business or how truly important it is fulfill my year as a titleholder but HOW to accomplish those things to the best of my ability. Brittney has such an awesome, caring soul and one that genuinely wants to see YOU shine, and I think that’s what makes her so wonderful at what she does. She helped me set goals and discover myself—things I will carry with me far past my years as Miss Mississippi Teen USA. Whether I was at school, in my Miss Teen USA interview, or on stage as one of the final two standing at Miss Teen USA, I always had Brittney’s words ‘stay true to you’ on repeat in my mind and in my heart, and I knew everything would happen the way it was supposed to. I’m beyond thankful not only for her sponsorship, but for her friendship as well.


Gracie Gipson

– Miss Junior Teen United States 2015

It has been an honor to work with Brittney Eskew on my journey to become Miss Junior Teen United States. I had been competing in pageants for less than six months when I attended her workshop the evening before my state competition. I learned so much during that time that I was eager to continue working with her in the months leading up to Miss United States Week. Britney was able to identify my unique strengths and provide me with the skills and confidence to stay true to myself going into the Miss Junior Teen United States pageant. She provided invaluable advice and instruction to help develop my stage presentation, wardrobe, platform, and interview skills, all of which were instrumental to my success. In addition, her styling team kept me looking my best all weekend long and were so much fun to spend time with during those early morning sessions! Brittney is simply the best; not only because she believed in me, but because she helped me to believe in myself.


Abigail Aleman

– International Junior Princess 2015

Where do I begin? I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done in Abigail’s preparation process prior to the International Junior Miss pageant. Your guidance has been essential. You have helped Abigail polish her skills but still remain true to herself. Being that we are in different states, I was super nervous about Skype sessions being effective, but I can tell you, they are. Abigail looked forward to every session. The tools you have provided for her to work on in between sessions have helped her grow and be more confident than ever before. I remember telling you how worried I was about Abigail aging up into a new age division and competing with girls up to 2 years older than her. You put my mind at ease telling me she could do it and hold her own. You are amazing in every sense of the word! Abigail loves and looks up to you so much! She truly does. You have a very special place in our hearts and we look forward to working with you for many years to come. Abigail’s dream of 3 years has come true! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Lexie Perry

– Miss Tennessee's Outstanding Teen 2014
– 1st runner-up Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2015

The day after I won Miss Tennessee's Outstanding Teen, I was asked if I would feel comfortable changing my platform. Of course I was skeptical with nationals being only 4 months away, but Brittney assured me I was in good hands. I hadn't previously donated much time to my soon-to-be platform and I was worried I would be unprepared during my interview at Miss America's Outstanding Teen. Brittney gave me so many good tips and hundreds of questions (literally!) to ensure I was as ready as possible when I stepped through those doors for my interview! Not only did I win 1st runner-up to Miss America's Outstanding Teen, but I was also finalist for Teens in Action, an honor given to those who have exemplified outstanding community service. I could never thank her enough for all of the work she has done for me and her sponsorship of the Miss Tennessee's Outstanding Teen organization. Thank you so much, Brittney!


Kirsten Verble

If I had to choose one word to describe what Brittney has given me it would be "confidence." Through Brittney's knowledge and expertise in pageantry, she perfected my interview skills, poise on stage, taught me to believe in myself and above all to be "me" despite what others think. Recently I was able to capture the title of Miss Jr. Teen America 2015, a coveted national title! Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Brittney in all that she did to help me prepare to compete at this level. In addition to in-studio sessions and Skype sessions she also supported me any time I needed words of encouragement or had wardrobe questions. I must also mention that her hair and make-up team are perfection and gave me that winning look. A big thank you to Eskew Consulting!! I will never be able to express how much you mean to me. You are more than I ever imagined or hoped for in a pageant consultant! With continued support from Brittney ,who knows where I may end up, there are limitless possibilities.
