Hiring Elissya was hands down one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. I live out of town so wasn't able to test a lot of make up artist options and the few I did try made me feel like I didn't look like myself. I booked Elissya based on the photos and description on her website about her approach in helping make sure you look gorgeous but not unnatural and did a test just a few days before my wedding and was thrilled. She was totally open to making a few tweaks to the test so we could know what would be perfect for the day-of so I got to be calm and relaxed on the big day.Sent on 09/13/2014
Elissya was more expensive than other options I'd tried but in the end the complete calm and confidence I got to feel because of knowing the amazing job she'd do was worth every penny. I have never felt more gorgeous (but also completely like myself!). I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Elissya is the BEST out there. Truly. I was so relieved when I finally found a makeup artist who is not only incredibly talented but also responsive and dependable. She is so on top of everything and gives you full peace of mind knowing that you can count on her 100% on your wedding day.Sent on 09/19/2014
Elissya arrived bright and early the morning of my wedding with two hair stylists, Cary and Justina. They made everyone look like the absolute best versions of themselves - simply glowing and beautiful. We had 9 women to beautify (6 bridesmaids, 2 moms and me, all with completely different coloring and hair types) and the Fresh Face team handled it with ease. We stayed right on schedule and actually finished with time to spare. This is so essential because if the hair and makeup runs late, everything for the rest of the wedding day runs late!! The Fresh Face team was such a calming presence and so much fun to be around. Thanks to them, my wedding morning was completely stress free as we sipped on mimosas, laughed, and were transformed into goddesses!!
I am extremely picky about my makeup (I did about 4 trials before booking Elissya) and have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. Elissya and Cary made me look the best I possibly could, and always listened carefully to any suggestions I had. As a true professional makeup artist, Elissya not only makes you look drop dead gorgeous in person but also knows exactly how the makeup will look in professional photos, which is HUGE! We received our pictures back from our wedding photographer recently and I was blown away by how flawless my face and makeup looked. Everything stayed perfectly from the early morning until 1:00 am (including taking photos in the wind in downtown SF). I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Elissya and team!!!
I highly recommend Fresh Face Makeup and if you're looking for an amazing team for your wedding hair and makeup, look no further!! Contact Elissya - you'll be thrilled that you did!

Elissya and Erin are fantastic! They did hair and makeup for me, my maid of honor and my mother for my wedding. I booked them after having a terrible experience with a different beauty team. Elissya returned my contact request immediately after I sent it, we scheduled a trial ASAP and I booked them immediately after the trial. I love the way my hair and makeup turned out and loved it even more after looking through pictures. Elissya knew exactly how much makeup to apply to look perfect in pictures and it lasted all night. I changed my mind about what I wanted to do with my hair basically the day of the wedding and Erin had no problem with adapting to exactly what I wanted. Plus, they were both just so much fun to get ready with and got along with everyone. They didn't leave until everyone was completely happy with their hair and makeup. And now I go to Erin for haircuts and highlights!Sent on 11/11/2013
