Elissa, what can I say... You are simply the best! You made me look so beautiful on my most treasured & special day! Everything was so perfect, too perfect that I couldn’t have even dreamt it. You are so talented in what you do, I will always come to you for special occasions. Thank you so very much! I’ve attached a couple of photos so you can see my beautiful make up application. And these are just proofs, not even retouched & look at your amazing work. With love Christina Ellie Make Up Ellie did my makeup for a gala ball at Palladium in February. Not only did the makeup look stunning, it also lasted all night and I still looked fresh at 3am! The fake lashes were great and I received so many compliments about my eyes. The great thing was that Ellie was able to make me up without making it look over the top. And to top it all off, she is just a lovely, warm person who made me feel comfortable as soon as I walked in the door. Thanks Ellie! Rebecca Smith via true local website Ellie Make Up Hi Elissa, Hope your well. Just an email to say thank-you for the amazing job you did on my make-up (September 12th 2009). I just received my wedding photos a couple of weeks ago and they come out amazing. i had endless comments on my wedding day about how fantastic my make-up looked and what a great job you did. You made my bridal party and myself extremely relaxed and comfortable the morning of the wedding and as it was an unexpected 30 degree on our wedding day, we had no problems with our make-up as it lasted up all day/night. Thank-you again for the amazing job you did and for your extreme professionalism. You have been highly recommended to my friends and family. As i have several occassions coming up in 2010, i am sure to be calling you in the near future. thanks, Vanessa Arcadi-Rendina Ellie Make Up Hi Elissa, Thank you so much for yesterday! Just letting you know I went really well, I had such a good day. You made me look absolutely stunning, which made me feel even more confident. Love Christina xx Ellie Make Up Hi Elissa Thanks again for all your help with the model makeup on Wednesday, they all looked gorgeous. Was lovely to meet you and it was most appreciated. Michelle via email Ellie Make Up Hi there Elissa, I was amazed at how you worked at the expo on Wednesday at the Wedding Establishment. You are a true artist with such creative flair. You are ingenious, to be able to change my face from drab to fab in such a short time and it lasted from 7AM until I washed my face off in the early hours that night. I wanted to keep the lashes on forever! I will definitely be using you for as many of my future portfolios as possible. Thanks again! Jaila via email Ellie Make Up Elissa is a true artist and I have been delighted by her work each time she has done my makeup. Her signature style is always glowing and natural but with a sexy, glamorous edge. Elissa did an 'evening look' for me and I received many compliments that night! The eye makeup was particularly striking and really made my eyes 'pop.' She also created a more subtle 'day time look' for me. This look gave me a fresh -faced, radiant appearance and the colours she used really accentuated my features. I would highly recommend Elissa is you want to feel beautiful for that special occasion. Katie Ellie Make Up Dearest Elissa, Thankyou for helping me create such an amazing day fro me. I'm so fussy with my makeup. i LOVED THE WAY i showed you a picture of what i wanted and with ease you knew how to apply that look on me. Thankyou once again. Anita, via sms Ellie Make Up My make up was magic the day of my wedding....Elissa you are an amazing artist, you used your intuition and vision to entwine colours and shades to compliment my dress and my mood. I just love the way I felt once you applied my make up, my skin felt like it was glowing, it felt light as I know you use the best make up available. The best thing about it was that even though it was a hot day and I did cry for most of the day....the make up was flawless, and I trully mean that! you are magical! x M Ellie Make Up Elissa did the make up for my wedding in November 2008. I was very impressed with how professional she was and her large knowledge and experience in the make up industry. The overall look was exactly what I wanted and my skin looked flawless without that caked on feeling. The bridal party looked gorgeous.Thanks Elissa! Melissa Ellie Make Up I would like to thank you for doing our makeup on my sister's wedding day. You made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. I will be recommending you so highly from now on. The bridal party looked absolutely stunning and we are all so extremely grateful to you for your beautiful work. Liyeza via email Ellie Make Up Having had my make up applied on several occasions by Elissa for special occasions such as Weddings, birthdays and other such formal events; I can safely say that I have been ecstatic each and every time. Elissa not only makes you look beautiful but also makes you feel worth a million dollars. Her technique is of a broad range and very versatile in the sense of, appropriate application for appropriate events/occasions. For example, on my wedding day I wanted a classic and elegant look but for my birthday wanted a more dramatic and sensual look. Elissa on both occasions has provided exactly what I wanted. I hope everyone who has had her make up done by Elissa is as happy as I am each and every time! Eleni Ellie Make Up Elissa, you did a fantastic job on my makeup and also on my bridesmaids. It lasted all day and well into the evening and let me tell you, that is hard to find. Your work is flawless. Thank-you, Romina Ellie Make Up I was extremely happy with the make-up that Elissa did for my wedding day. Not only was she reliable and professional, she helped make my bridal party and myself look wonderful on the day. The make-up lasted and I received many compliments through out the day. I would highly recommend Elissa to anyone! Tina Ellie Make Up I would be more than happy to recommend Elissa’s work to any friend or family member that needed the services of a Make Up Artist. Words can’t describe how happy I was especially after quite a few disappointing trials by other Make Up Artists. Elissa took the time to work out exactly what I wanted, she then went above and beyond my expectations. So many of my guests at my Wedding were completely blown away by my Make Up. Elissa is a true Artist! Nadia Ellie Make Up Elissa offers a very professional and flawless service. The makeup lasted the whole night and was beautiful! I was very happy!
