  • I loved working with Elana and her team! I came to Elana at first looking only for makeup, but after a disastrous hair trial with someone else, I asked if she could also recommend someone to do my hair. She set me up with Michelle who did an amazing job! I showed her a few pictures and she just "got it". It was exactly what I wanted and I was able to breathe easily after my other experience... On the day of the wedding Michelle (hair), Judy (makeup) and Elana came to our hotel and did hair & makeup for my Mom, Mother-in-Law, Sister-in-Law and 2 bridesmaids. They were really good about listening to the look all of us girls wanted and were also really fast! (and on time). I even changed my makeup look from the trial on the day-of, deciding I wanted my eyes a little different and it was no problem. Thanks ladies for making us all feel so pretty on the big day!

  • First of all I would like to join to all good words which girls addressed here to Elana and her team. It was my great pleasure to meet Elana and Jarmin. I do not live in US and I could use only Internet to find who can help me with my wedding make-up and hair. I sent message to Elana and after her first reply I decided that I found a perfect team to work with. And it is true! They are perfect and hight professional. I was able to know the exact day of my wedding only one week before the event. You can imagine how I was stressed during this one week and at the day of my wedding I had no any idea about which make up I want and which hair dress I prefer. Elana and Jarmin thank you so much that you could feel me and found the best style for me. In 2 hours of their magic work I became an amazing bride and heard many wonderful complements even from unknown people during whole our wedding day. I also like very much that Elana and her team behave with you like with the friend and not like wit... Read more

  • Elana and her hairdresser were great! She and Megan came to the hotel to do my Matron of Honor and my hair and make-up. They were on time and fun to work with! Both did a great job and we looked fab! It was so great to just sit in the room and be pampered on the day of my wedding. So worth the money to not be driving around like a crazy person to a salon...lol!

  • Elana and her team were amazing at my September wedding! They were prompt, professional and made my mom, MIL, bridesmaids and me look amazing. I am not a big makeup person, but Elana did an amazing job of glamming me up but keeping it natural. Definitely get the lashes for one of the options, they look great. I received more compliments about my appearance than I expected and it was so humbling... I felt beautiful!! The application stayed on for almost the entire night... the end I looked a little ragged, but hey, I was dancing a ton! Elana did such a great job at my makeup trial, that I booked her to do my makeup for a friend's wedding too! Two big thumbs up for Elana and her team.

  • Based on the wonderful reviews and after looking through her website, I contacted Elana for more information via email. She was very responsive and accommodating as we worked to schedule a trial at her house. I went to the trial and had my makeup done by Elana and my hair done by Jarmin. They both asked lots of questions to make sure that they were capturing my style. As I typically don’t wear a lot of makeup, I was especially pleased with how Elana was able to apply makeup the appropriate amount of makeup for a bride and still make me look very natural. Jarmin was able to create very interesting and intricate design with my hair in a beautiful updo with hair pinned back in interesting patterns. After looking through more pictures online I realized I had maybe wanted to try a different style I had never done before – a side bun. I contacted Jarmin who gladly invited me to come to her salon to do a second trial. The day of the wedding my hair was even better than I could have ever i... Read more

  • I am a bride that had to plan her wedding from Louisiana & was getting married in Chicago. I found Elana via internet & she was so amazing from the beginning. She drove to downtown chicago when I was in town for my bachelorette party to do my trial makeup. She was so sweet, and does an unbelievable job. Im picky & wanted airbrush makeup and she listened to exactly what i wanted & i just trusted her immediatly! I got so many compliments about my makeup for my wedding day! She is so talented and i feel like ive known her for years! I would defiantly use elana for your special day! You will be SO Happy you did!! Kristy

  • Elana is the absolute BEST make-up artist !! She came to downtown Chicago the day of my wedding and set up in the Hyatt hotel suite. In just a few short hours, she completed makeup for an exceptionally large wedding party (8 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, 2 grandmothers and a godmother). Every single person raved about how wonderful their makeup turned out. At the reception, even more people complimented the makeup job, and many asked for Elana to do future work for them. Elana is reasonably priced, very sociable, will work with you, and provide an outstanding service. I will be using only her for all of my future makeup needs. Thank you Elana for making my special day that much more special.

  • Elana did a great job! Reasonably priced... She had 5 get makeup done and we all looked beautiful! My makeup stayed in place all day - and night and probablly would have made it through the day after had I have left it... The eyelashes were the perfect addition to our day! I never had to worry about running black mascara marks! We all looked fantastic and enjoyed Elana!

  • Elana is just a peach to work with! I communicated with her eight months before my wedding to set up a trial appointment and then booked my wedding with her. She was very receptive to the kind of makeup I wear everyday and the look I was going for. My wedding day make up look beautiful and I got so many compliments from people who normally see me wearing no make up. As far as pricing goes, I also think that it was very reasonable for the quality of make up application and would lead me to use her again.

  • I had a contract through Elana Darrus that was outsourced. Gina did my makeup trial for my wedding in September 2013. The trial was reasonably priced, especially since I went out that same night to test the makeup and it was perfect and it lasted the whole night. Gina came to my apartment in the city of Chicago which was so convenient and was early and prepared. I had never thought I could look that stunning! I did use the fake eye lashes for the first time and that was the best decision I ever made. The day before the wedding, Gina had a family emergency but had the makeup artist that she used for her wedding sub for her the day of. Gina’s replacement already had the pictures and colors and everything from our trial. The wedding day makeup is done very intensely so it does take longer than the trial does; the trial was just about an hour; the real thing was about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Gina’s replacement made the makeup look exactly as Gina had so I was very happy with that. I cri... Read more

  • Elana and one of her other make-up artists, Megan, did the make-up for 9 people on our wedding day. Everyone loved their make-up and looked amazing. Elana does amazing work and no one looks like they have make-up caked on their face. I had Elana do my make-up for my engagement and wedding and it looked amazing. I felt like a celebrity! I highly recommend using Elana for your wedding make-up or any special event.
