working with you was great , you do beautiful makeup.
Elana Darrus was fantastic last weekend at the Grand Hotel Wedding on Mackinac Island. The Bride, Ashley, had perfect makeup that was not overdone. Ashley brought Elana all the way from Chicago to solely do her makeup in Northern Michigan, a compliment in itself! I would highly recommend Elana to anyone.
