  • “I had Elin do my makeup for my senior pictures. I can not even tell you how happy I am with the photos. I had no idea I could look so flawless. Everyone I gave them to were so impressed. Elin Rocks!

    – Megan Client
  • “You did the make-up of Colleen, her bridal party, and myself. I must say that I have never looked better in pictures! You did a wonderful job! I got soooo many compliments that day, but the main thing was how happy I was with the pictures that I will keep my whole life long and are up in my house, my daughter’s house, my mother’s house, etc. so I see them constantly. I resisted doing the pro makeup but Colleen insisted and it was definitely the right thing to do for me. I even had a friend who told me to do my own makeup, but after the wedding, she was asking me who did my makeup and was interested in visiting you sometime. It was an amazing difference.
