"Elyse was very professional and did a wonderful job doing my makeup for my wedding. She explained all products being used and the importance of skincare. She also did my spray tan. I was very impressed that the products used on my skin did not stain my clothing leading up to my wedding. My makeup lasted fresh all day since 9am. Elyse also used airbrush and shine control for my husband. He was very pleased and did not look shiny for photographs. My mom loved how Elyse did her make up as well. What I loved most is that she doesn’t make you look overdone. She enhances your natural beauty and uses the best skincare and beauty products. I highly recommend Elyse to anyone looking for a talented makeup artist."

"Elyse has a style that enhances natural beauty in an amazing way. I was so thrilled and excited for my makeup after we did the trial and then of course for the wedding day, it was perfect. I felt like myself and at the end of the day, I didn't feel like I was taking off a mask of makeup. My husband was also very pleased with it and didn't think I looked unrecognizable. My mother and maid of honor's make up turned out just as beautiful and they were very happy with it!! Thank you so much Elyse for your hard work and for helping enhance my special day! It was truly wonderful!!"
"Elyse did a beautiful job with my wedding makeup. My makeup was timeless, simple, and highlighted my best features. She was very professional, easy to get a hold of, and willing to work around my busy schedule. I would highly recommend her!"
"From consultation to the wedding day, Elyse was not only extremely professional and personable, but she was also accessible and just as excited as I was about creating that perfectly natural yet bridal look for me. I am Japanese with black hair, dark eyes, and my skin is of light complexion. She knew exactly the colors and textures that would enhance my features. She is also an amazing listener - she understood my preferences and implemented them so beautifully. She takes her time to get to know you, your style, and concerns, and together with you, meticulously creates that look you love. On the day of the wedding, she was at the hotel in advance of the appointment time with sanitized tools. Her bright smile and cheerful personality made me feel relaxed on a hectic day. My husband, mom, and friend who had their respective makeup done by her had nothing but great things to say about her and her skills as well (my husband got the men's makeup which came out wonderful - perfect skin for the cameras!). Lastly, I should add that I had to plan my wedding half way across the country. She worked with me with regard to scheduling everything seamlessly. Thank you Elyse!!"
"Elyse did an AMAZING job on my make up for my professional shoot. I was so nervous because of my skin and a little self conscious and she was so warm and made me feel comfortable. After doing my photo shoot and seeing the results I am blow away! I never knew how great natural makeups could look in photos! Will be using her again very soon!"
"I am a headshot / fashion photographer here in El Paso and had the pleasure of working closely with Elyse during various photoshoots! Her knowledge of skincare and makeup is impressive. She knows the fine differences between event makeup and makeup for on camera. If you plan a night on the town with your husband or a photo session for your next business cards, Elyse is the right MUA for you!"
"Elyse did an amazing job on my wedding trial makeup, as well as my wedding makeup. She was so accommodating and very responsive whenever I had questions. She also worked with my event coordinator and my hair stylist (which Elyse recommended, who was also amazing), and it really helped take off some of the stress brides have to deal with. It was all perfect - she listened to EXACTLY what I wanted the bridesmaids makeup to look like. I wanted a more natural look for everyone, including myself. I actually looked like myself, and not someone else’s version of myself. I highly recommend Elyse. And I will definitely be calling her whenever I need my makeup done."
