Elizabeth is AMAZING! She did my make-up for my wedding and my mom's. She worked with me to make my make-up natural; similar to what I wear everyday, but with a tad bit of spice with a flawless finish that I did not need to touch up all evening long. She was on time and... Read More accommodating for both my trial and the day of and her loving personality made it even more of a joy to work with her.

I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth on a recent shoot that I photographed and I couldn't sing higher praises. We were in a crunch for time as we were shooting outdoors, so she gladly and effortlessly did a majority of the clients makeup in the car on the way to the... Read More location. Her work is absolutely stunning and flawless. Not to mention, she can range from highly dramatic to the most natural and soft look. She is a highly talented artist and kind soul.

Elizabeth is so amazing! I am so glad that I found her. For my wedding last September she did my makeup, as well as the makeup for my sister and my mom. Elizabeth is extremely talented and creative - not to mention sweet and down to earth. Our makeup looked gorgeous! She was... Read More able to listen to the direction that I had in mind and then use her creative vision to turn my vague statements into an amazing look for me on my wedding day. On top of all that, she was so professional. She showed up on time, was quick to answer my emails and questions and was very understanding and flexible when I had to reschedule my trial makeup run a few times. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist - I definitely plan on calling her again for any special occasion where I need to look and feel extra beautiful! Thanks again Elizabeth :)

Elizabeth did my bridal make up, as well as my three bridesmaids and achieved exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to look like myself, but still have enough makeup on for the pictures. I could not have been happier and she totally accomplished exactly what I envisioned. A... Read More natural, classic, bronze-y look. My bridesmaids were super happy too (no one touched up what Elizabeth did – and these girls are picky ) and one has hired her since for a wedding. In addition to her expert make up skills, she is just a genuinely good, sweet, kind, patient person and was an awesome energy to have the morning before I walked down the aisle. Would recommend her and use her again without a doubt. Thank you Elizabeth!

You will not be disappointed, hire Elizabeth!

Elizabeth is fabulous. My makeup was beautiful and natural. I looked like my best self without being overdone. She also did makeup for three of my friends and a little grooming on my brother (who was officiating) and the groom. Everyone was happy with her work and looked... Read More beautiful. She made the guys feel very relaxed and helped them to feel a little manlier by telling them she has done sportscaster makeup!

Elizabeth is BEYOND talented. We hired Elizabeth for my wedding in November. All siz of my bridesmaids wanted to get their makeup done by her because they saw how beautiful her work was. Normally when bridal parties get their makeup done I am used to half the girls washing their... Read More face and starting over and the other half touching up what was done....not with elizabeth!

Thank you Elizabeth! You are amazing!

Elizabeth is incredible! She did my wedding makeup (and some of my bridesmaids' and mommas' makeup, too). I don't wear much, if any, makeup and always opt for a minimal look; I wanted to look like myself on my wedding day. After our makeup trial, I knew Elizabeth was just who I...

I wanted leave a review because I know how helpful these are while searching for wedding help. I just got married in July 2016 and I can't thank Elizabeth enough for being apart of my wedding day!! I felt so beautiful and pampered and I really enjoyed her company. She is easy to... Read More talk to, very sweet and professional. In addition to my make up, I had 9 bridesmaids and my mom, and almost everyone had something done. We had a few scheduling set backs the day of and she was so patient accommodating to our changes.

I have only amazing things to say about Elizabeth!! From setting up a trial to the make up on the big day, she continued to impress.

Is it possible to want someone to not only do your makeup on your wedding day, but everyday of your life? If so, I would like to have Elizabeth make me look pretty everyday. She's the most talented makeup artist I've ever seen, absolutely incredible. Elizabeth did makeup for my... Read More engagement photos last year, and for my wedding this past spring.
