Due to the amount of bookings and clients that need makeup services, I love to work with local hair stylists in the area that specialize in hair specifically. This cuts out any question as to wether you will receive services that have the same quality of work on your event day. It is incredibly important to me as a Makeup Artist to make sure that I also have that time to really connect with each and every one of my clients. It is more than just doing makeup for me. It is about making myself present, ensuring that you feel seen and heard, and that I understand exactly what style it is that you are looking for. Most importantly- I want you to be able to have fun! So, by working with a hair stylist that specializes in your needs for your event, we can coordinate the days schedule a lot more smoothly and really give you the focus that is needed in perfecting each: hair and makeup! You deserve that! You deserve to be invested in equally as much as you are investing and trusting in us to provide you that service!

- With love,

Elle

    Honest and trustworthy!

    I ended up hiring a different vendor, BUT my experience with Elle was seriously wonderful. Y'know brides get charged for trials left and right, making just finding a makeup artist an expensive task in and of itself. Elle's trial cost get applied to the total cost of your service -- so that's awesome. And separately, when I had to let Elle know that I've hired someone else (due to totally unrelated reasons) she refunded me for my trial.

    Honestly, I didn't expect that. It's hard to find vendors who aren't trying to upcharge you or take advantage of you just because you're having a wedding. Elle is one of the reliable and trustworthy ones in this industry. When you're spending big bucks to make your wedding day wonderful, you want to hire a vendor team who will have your back.

    So, I would definitely recommend her!

    12/10 do recommend

    Elle did my bridal makeup and the makeup for my bridesmaids at my recent New Year鈥檚 eve wedding. I knew I wanted to use her for my wedding after having her do my makeup at a friends wedding. Even as a bridesmaid she made me feel so special and glamorous. The experience I had with her as a bride was nothing less than perfect from beginning to end. She spent time getting to know me as a human and was available to me anytime I needed her. She not only does phenomenal makeup, but provides education and a genuine connection as she does it. When you sit in her chair you can feel her passion for what she does and it certainly comes through in her work. She is a true artist. I asked for a classic glam look with a Ruby Woo red lip (which is no easy feat). Days after my wedding I am still getting compliments on my makeup. It was simply stunning. I can鈥檛 thank her enough for making me feel flawless on my big day. I would recommend her without hesitation to everyone.

Super Sweet. Gabrielle is a master blender when it come to matching all skin types, tones, and minor scars. Very efficient, quick and thorough. Elle Beaute Events is the only make up artist I refer to all of my Brides.
