Thumbtack Spotlight

Makeup By Elana

(2 reviews)

Doing someone's makeup is very personal; you are very close to that person, and you have to make the client feel comfortable in the first few minutes. It's all about the client and what she or he wants.

Elana Green started her business after completing a course at Makeup Designory in NYC. She was 18 then, so she had a difficult time proving her skills to everyone. The truth, however, is that despite her age, Elana knows a lot of things about makeup than many other makeup artists. By the age of 20, she had already accomplished a lot and still continues to prove her worth at present.

I keep my clients happy by learning who they are and how they like [their] makeup. [It's] all customer service!

Her typical clients are brides, models, and everyday people. She has done Halloween makeup and photo shoots. She loves teaching and making her clients look and feel gorgeous. Her most successful project was a jewelry shoot, and it shows in the stunning makeup photos. With her given talent, there's no doubt that all of them are very pleased with her service.

I can tell you how great my work is, but [it's] never as good as experiencing it!

They say that actions speak louder than words, and Elana certainly can prove it to you!
