  • Elaine was amazing!! She was so flexible and helpful on my wedding day. She went out of her way to make sure I was happy and that everything was perfectly the way I wanted. She was so patient and kind. Patience and flexibility were so important to me for my vendors because there's no way to predict exactly how the day will go!! Not to mention that she has so much experience in the field and is so talented. There really isn't a better makeup artist or hairstylist in town!!

  • Elaine did my makeup for my sister-in-law's wedding and I knew I had to use her for mine! She did a beautiful job in my trial and I felt comfortable that I would look like a polished version of myself on my wedding day. She did the makeup for myself, my mother, my mother in law to be, and my 5 bridesmaids. Everyone loved their makeup!

  • Boy was I lucky to find Elaine.. she is fantastic! If you're looking for a makeup artist for your upcoming wedding, look no further! Not only is she sweet and fun to work with, but she's also incredibly talented with a great eye for detail. I had 6 Bridesmaids, my mom, the MOG and myself(9 total) on the list with what I thought was a tight timeline, but Elaine covered us all with time to spare! She even stayed just to do touch ups for everyone, and they all looked gorgeous! She created a seamless look for all the girls and we all felt like princesses for the day. I cannot speak highly enough of Elaine! I would definitely recommend her to everyone. She's great to work with, does a wonderful job and will keep you at ease no matter what's going on with her calm presence. I could go on and on.. Thank you Elaine for being apart of our special day and making us all feel beautiful!

  • Elaine was a Godsend to have on my wedding day! Not only is she incredibly talented, but her personality put me at ease on a somewhat stressful day. She was more than prepared for anything that came up. Each one of my bridesmaids had their own beautiful style, and I felt absolutely beautiful on my wedding day! That is truly a gift. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding make up artist!!! She's an absolute joy. -C. Taylor

  • I loved that I was able to dance the night away without dark eyes or stray hairs. I looked photo ready; so worth treating myself! She was pretty booked up, but was super flexible in fitting me in. LOVED the way everything turned out! Thank you!!!

  • I booked Elaine through a recommendation from my photographer (and I learned that these do not come easily since vendors are putting their own names on the line when recommending others). Elaine was amazing and thankfully available (as she does limited number of weddings each month). Her MANY years of experience clearly show through in her professionalism, personality, and flexibility…and of course her MAKEUP and HAIR was exactly what I wanted. I did a trial run with Elaine just for my hair, showing her just a few pictures (that matched my style and age range obviously) and she picked up on what I wanted immediately and able to replicate it during the trial. I ended up booking her for my mom’s makeup and hair as well (without a trial) and she catered to the fact that my mom typically wears no make-up and has frizzy, curly hair. Elaine came to my hotel the day of and was right on time (I in fact was running behind and frantically jumping out of the shower drying my hair as she was a... Read more

  • Elaine is the best. Look no further. She's incredible at her job. Her artwork speaks for itself. We've known Elaine for 3 years and since then she has done all our events, my wedding, my sisters, my friends, and any event I need in between.

  • I'm not ready for this relationship to be over!!! Elaine is the best of the best! She is professional in every sense of the word and a very talented makeup artist. She is quick to respond to all correspondence, very clear about pricing and timing. AND she's hilarious! I switched my hair style a bit the morning the of the wedding and she was able to do it perfectly. I felt like the most beautiful bride. My bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law were all extremely pleased with their hair and make-up and were amazed how she fit us all in. I can't say enough about how wonderful Elaine is to work with. She is a rare find...book her, you won't be dissappointed!

  • Elaine was perfect. She was very responsive over email (which was comforting for me since I was planning a wedding in NC while I was living in CA), she arrived on time on the day of, she was very friendly and pretty darn funny, and she estimated the time it would take to finish everyone's hair and makeup PERFECTLY. We were out the door right on time, which was very important to me. Oh, and did I mention the fact that we all looked AMAZING? We had a classy yet earthy feel going on, which included a herb garland I wanted in my hair, and she incorporated it PERFECTLY. I was able to enjoy my special day to the fullest because I knew I looked exactly how I pictured and I looked AMAZING. That's a good feeling to have.

  • I had the pleasure of having Elaine do my hair and make-up for my wedding along with my wedding party. Elaine is like having another girlfriend helping you get ready except she does an exceptional job with make-up AND hair and she kept us on-time. Actually, I think I was ready EARLY for the first time in my life. Wedding hair and make-up is expensive but Elaine is really the best value you are going to get in Raleigh, she comes with so much experience and she is so easy to work with. I recommend the trial, I did it with my bridal portraits...my portrait looks amazing and it had to be the make-up. I didn't really like my engagement pics and I think it's simply because I didn't have enough or the right make-up on. It really makes a difference! Elaine is such a gem to have in Raleigh, any pictures I take going forward she will be doing my make-up. Thank you, Elaine for making "getting ready for the wedding" such an easy and relaxing experience!

  • Elaine is the most amazing makeup and hair artist. She listens to your vision, but also comes with creative ideas to make you feel and look your best on your big day. Elaine's professionalism and bright spirit is a breath of fresh air compared to the natural chaos that ensues on your wedding day. She helps to keep your day fun and enjoyable. She not only had the ability to transform myself into a glowing beauty, but also my entire wedding party. After getting my pictures back, I'm in awe at how she was able to create a look I'd always dreamed of- oh and that lasted the entire day and night - even outside!

  • I was the mother of the groom and Elaine made this special day even more perfect for me!!! Because of her I felt wonderful the entire day! She did my hair and makeup flawlessly! Despite me throwing a last minute change on her for hairstyle. She listened to my feedback and was so calming, courteous and professional. When I requested a trial, she was quick to respond and scheduled it in a timely manner. She also referred me to other beauty professionals (tan & spa) who were amazing and gave me discounts because she was my referral! The value she provided to me for the day was the confidence that this middle-age woman could still feel beautiful. Priceless!

  • What a great find! After waiting until the last minute to decide on hair and makeup for my big day and after being told "no, already booked" by more people than not, I stumbled across Elaine. By luck (truly), Elaine was free the weekend of my wedding and felt the need to jump on the opportunity. I used Elaine for my hair and makeup, and for the hair of 4/5 of my bridesmaids; nobody left disappointed. The trial run of the makeup went well, and Elaine was very open to hearing about my feedback and made notes on what was done so that it would be perfect for the day-of. On my actual wedding day, the makeup was even better than the trial run (making my mother cry just by looking at her), and everybody's hair was exactly as they had imagined/had envisioned. Both the make-up and hair lasted through the night (and even held up through the rain). Responses to emails could sometimes be delayed (she is a busy lady) and even though there was some confusion in getting to my townhouse that did cut i... Read more

  • Elaine was great to work with. She was friendly, professional, and very organized. I did a trial hair/makeup run with her about a month before the wedding and loved both the way it turned out and that she took such great notes and pictures to make sure she could do it all again on the wedding day. She was also incredibly flexible. I ended up having to add a lot more hair services after I signed the initial contract, but she didn't miss a beat and brought in extra help to get everything done. I also wanted to get makeup done for my handicapped grandmother before the wedding; Elaine was more than happy meet my grandmother while she was still in the car, so she wouldn't have to get out of the car twice. (And my grandmother looked beautiful!) Overall, I am glad I hired Elaine - she worked quickly, was very calm on the day of the wedding, and did a great job.

  • Elaine is professional, personable, and flexible. That said, I did not feel that the makeup/hair quality matched the price. I wish I had gone with someone else or just done my own makeup/hair.

I am really floored by this and hope we can settle this soon!!!!!
