Whether you are walking down the aisle or rocking a boudoir shoot my approach to beauty is simple - look like yourself, only better.

Together with my clients, it is always my absolute pleasure and goal to create a look that has them wishing I could come to their house every morning to be their hair and makeup magician.  

Most of my clients tend to be brides (it is still amazing to me how many people get married on this island - Victoria is truly a destination wedding hot spot), but my services really extend to anyone that wants to look and feel beautiful for any life occasion. Whether I come to you, or you visit me at the Elate Cosmetics Studio in Bastian Square, you would be surprised how many reasons there can be to hire a professional hair and makeup artist. From having dinner with your partner, to updating your business profile, planning a family photo shoot, or even graduating, whenever there is going to be attention on you or a camera flashing I am here to help you look your best.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my website and I wish you all the best on your beauty adventure!!

 

A special note to all my brides.....

You have already done the hard part. You have found the one true person to walk beside you in this journey called life. Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable and anticipated days in your life and you deserve to look and feel like the most beautiful version of yourself. 

With 17 years experience and over 1000 brides, it is still an absolute honor to be chosen to spend time with someone on their wedding day. From the moment your initial inquiry is received, to the words "I do", it is my promise to do everything I can to make the beauty portion of your planning effortless, and your wedding day magical.   

Sincerely,

Erin

 P.S. You will also be comforted knowing that I can tie a mean bow and bustle a dress like a pro.
