Such an amazing experience to with Elyse Simons!! SHE IS A PERFECTIONIST! Every detail was perfect. She did my makeup for my engagement photos shoot and drew out what shades she used for everything she had placed on my face that day. I couldn't believe how organized and perfect she was! I would highly recommend her for absolutely ANYTHING! All of my friends/wedding party were SOO happy with their outcome!

Thank you Elyse!!!

So happy to have had Elyse do my makeup for my wedding day! Elyse is kind, knowledgeable, and such a gem. I moved back to El Paso a year ago and my skin has been struggling. I was looking for someone to color correct any blemishes, while still making me look natural and flawless. Elyse went above and beyond! We did a bridal preview a couple weeks ago and it left me confident knowing that no matter the condition of my skin on the big day my makeup would still look great! The makeup lasted all day, and didn't budge through tears and late summer heat during the day. Super grateful for Elyse, and will definitely be reaching back out for any future events!

Elyse is an absolute gold mine of experience and knowledge. She was so professional and sweet. She made us all feel so beautiful and understood each of our different skin types, colors, and eye shapes. She was able to bring out and enhance the unique natural beauty we each had. The makeup absolutely lasted all day!! Through tears, sweat, weather anything and everything. It all stayed put. I would book her again and again for any future events.

If you book her, you won't regret it.

Elyse did my makeup, nails and spray tan for my wedding day, and I couldn't be happier with the results. She was attentive, understanding, and ensured everything felt right for me. It wasn't just about looking good, but also about feeling comfortable and like myself. I genuinely appreciated her down-to-earth approach and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a genuine touch on their special day.

I had the pleasure of working with Elyse for my branding photos and I was absolutely stunned by the results. My makeup was natural, it matched my skin tone, and most importantly I felt confident in my own skin. She walked me through the process, and before I knew it, I was finished and camera ready.

Elyse is amazingly experienced, talented and professional.

Elyse's attentiveness and focus solely on me during my photo shoot was so reassuring, especially since I was nervous about getting my photo taken. Then I found out her work has been published by magazines internationally and I was thrilled to have been able to work with her! I really loved how involved Elyse was in the photo shoot and how open she was to feedback on the makeup.

Elyse was absolutely amazing!! I did both my trial and bridal makeup with her and I've never felt so beautiful! The airbrush makeup lasted all day and looked fresh at the end of the night. When I did my engagement photos, my fiancé accidentally sprayed almost a whole bottle of champagne in my face and my makeup didn't budge! She tailored all makeup looks to each of my bridesmaids and everyone looked stunning! I highly recommend Elyse for all makeup needs; she is truly a miracle worker!

Elyse did my bridal makeup along with my 8 bridesmaids, mother, and grandmother. She did an incredible job! She was so professional from start to finish. Her makeup skills are unmatched to any other professional I have come across. I wanted to look as natural as possible while also looking like I was wearing some makeup. Elyse delivered the most beautiful, natural, enhancing makeup. She made me and my friends feel beautiful!!! She started at 6:45am and was with us until 4:30pm right before I walked down the aisle. She truly is the best makeup artist El Paso has to offer. She is kind and great at her job.

From the second I met Elyse at my bridal preview, she was very professional, welcoming, and genuine! She enhances your natural features that way you look drop dead gorgeous on your day, but also still look like you without having your face caked with makeup. I was obsessed with my final look at the bridal preview and couldn't wait for the wedding day! We hired her to not only do my makeup, but my mother, mother-in-law, and 9 BRIDESMAIDS. Elyse took the time to fabricate a schedule for the appointment time for each one of us. She came to the hotel with a second makeup artist, arrived on time per the schedule, and did each one of the ladies makeup perfectly. We all felt not only natural, but beautiful! The makeup was so well done that it lasted until 4 in the morning! No Streaks, blotching, missing eyelashes, etc. She also made sure each one of the ladies, including myself, had a kit with everything we would need for the big day. I am beyond grateful to have been told about Elyse and absolutely recommend her for your wedding or any other big event!

Elyse did my makeup for my professional photo headshot which will be used for my work platforms, social media, and business cards. She did a phenomenal job. This was not my first time using her services, I'm a repeat customer. Elyse does an amazing job with first listening to your desired look then does her magic in making that come to fruition. She is a gem, kind, hardworking and attentive. I highly recommend you choose her to do your makeup for any event. She is highly skilled with flawless results.

I went to Elyse to get my makeup done before a corporate headshot photoshoot. She did an incredible job - the makeup felt lightweight, and it enhanced all the right features. She was also very personable and easy to get along with during the session, and she made sure I was right on time for my shot. The makeup came out great in the photos-she even provided me with some great tips for the future. I highly recommend Elyse for makeup services, and, based on my overall experience,

I imagine that her makeup lessons are

also just as great!

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 with 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 made my wedding day makeup experience all I could want. The was flexible to work with overlapping hair schedules and a very demanding mother of the bride. She adjusted her technique depending on what each person wanted and everyone was left happy. My makeup lasted all day, even in the El Paso heat for our outdoor ceremony. I most enjoyed working with Elyse for her professionalism, expertise and amazing work.

Alejandra Ruiz Alarcon

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 ad shine control for my husband. He was very pleased and did not look shiny for photographs. My mom loved how Elyse did her makeup 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.
