Ellen and her team were amazing from the start of the day. They took care of me (the bride), my Mom and my 8 bridesmaids--the whole team was on time, completely profession and I could not have been more happy with the results. The day went completely smoothly and both my make-up and hair were just as amazing as my trial several months before--I would say if anything it was even better for my special day. I was super pleased with Face the Day from early on in the planning process early this year right up until my wedding day. Ellen helped me to plan out a timeframe to ensure me and my bridesmaids were camera ready right on time. I would absolutely recommend Ellen the Face the Day team for any future make-up/hair needs for a special event or wedding. I never felt prettier!

I cannot recommend Face the Day highly enough! Since I was an out-of-town bride, I was only in New York the week of the wedding, but the Face the Day team was able to fit in my trials on the Monday before to accomodate my schedule. On the day of the wedding, my hair and makeup, as well as that of my mom, maid of honor, and aunt, looked flawless and stayed put for over 12 hours. They did a great job of listening to what we wanted and delivered the natural look we all were hoping for. Thanks for making us all look fantastic on my wedding day!

What can I say to fully express how amazing Ellen is? There are truly no words to describe how perfect my makeup was. Ellen is an expert in what she does in every sense of the word. I loved my consultation where she did 2 looks on me. I loved them both. Then, I, of course, kind of changed my mind and went with a slightly different look for the day of the wedding. Ellen somehow understood all of that (both in terms of being flexible and just in terms of knowing what I wanted better than I did). My bridesmaids also looked AMAZING. To be sure, I did not want to look "fake" and neither did my husband (girls who look too "done-up" is kind of our pet peeve) and that's exactly why Ellen was so effective at giving me the exact look that I wanted. She's patient and a perfectionist. I looked like the best version of me on my best day. It's a joy to go through the process with her.

She also has been extremelly accommodating throughout the process. When she actually comes to you in the bridal suite, she brings personality and happiness to the event. I genuinely enjoyed having her around. Worth every penny! I literally cannot wait for the next excuse that I have to ask her do my face again!

Ellen did my make-up for my September 2013 wedding, and from the very start of my trial run with her, I knew that I was in good hands. Ellen is a great listener, and after discussing what I had envisioned for my make-up, she created a really beautiful look. Wedding make-up artists in New York can be pricey, but Ellen’s rates are incredibly fair…and the results are incredible! Ellen used airbrush makeup for me and my party, and everyone looked flawless. Ellen was also kind enough to refer me to my hairstylist, who was equally fantastic. She made the whole process easy, streamlined and fun. Her outstanding reviews are well-deserved!

OMG!!! Ellen is amazing!!!! Brides to Be.. I'm not sure how to describes Ellen's work so I'll simply say. The day of my trial once Ellen was finished, I turned around to my Bride to Be and tears fell from her face instantly!!! Now if that isn't the seal of approval, then I don't know what is. If that doesn't do it for you, the day of my wedding was one of the hottest days in New York, I must tell you that my make-up was perfect that entire day. Still not enough for you. Welp! There's a final photo that was taken the night of our wedding (1:30am), can you believe people thought it was taken during our reception our. Ellen goes with the flow!! She's laid back, she's funny, she's on-time and bless her heart for lugging that Diva Kit of hers around New York to cater to this Chicago bride. What I'll remember most, I turned around to look at my mom on my wedding day and she said "you look like a porcelain doll, your face is flawless" Ellen Girlfriend... YOU ARE THE BOMB.COM!!!!!!

Cannot sing Ellen's praises enough.  I found her after searching the net for MUAs who are experienced with Afro skin tones.  This was very important as my party included shades of brown from the lightest to the darkest.   After my trial, not only did I love the look of her work, I loved her vibe.  On the day of Ellen and her assistant Cybil showed up on time (6:00 AM on Memorial Day way out in Long Island) and worked their magic.  The makeup was my gift to my bridesmaids and they loved it.   They all decided that they will be hiring Ellen when it is their turn to get married.  We all got so many compliments.  Honestly flawless work.  
My favorite part of hiring Ellen was seeing the makeup she did on my teenage daughter (not too much but absolutely beautiful) and my mom.  My mom NEVER wears makeup, not even lip gloss and had initially refused to get her makeup done as previous attempts at makeup had left her itchy and uncomfortable.  I spoke to Ellen about this and Ellen advised me to try out some makeup brands for sensitive skin.  I never got around to doing a trial run for my mom but nonetheless Ellen was able to do my mom's makeup with nary a complaint from my mom.  She was beaming the entire day and looks so beautiful in her pics.  My aunt told me that she has never seen my mom happier.  Of course she was happy to see her baby daughter get married but I know some of her happiness was because she knew she was gorgeous. As an added bonus Ellen introduced me to the fabulous Diana who did my hair as well as some of the members in my bridal party.

Cannot sing Ellen's praises enough.  I found her after searching the net for MUAs who are experienced with Afro skin tones.  This was very important as my party included shades of brown from the lightest to the darkest.   After my trial, not only did I love the look of her work, I loved her vibe.  On the day of Ellen and her assistant Cybil showed up on time (6:00 AM on Memorial Day way out in Long Island) and worked their magic.  The makeup was my gift to my bridesmaids and they loved it.   They all decided that they will be hiring Ellen when it is their turn to get married.  We all got so many compliments.  Honestly flawless work.  
My favorite part of hiring Ellen was seeing the makeup she did on my teenage daughter (not too much but absolutely beautiful) and my mom.  My mom NEVER wears makeup, not even lip gloss and had initially refused to get her makeup done as previous attempts at makeup had left her itchy and uncomfortable.  I spoke to Ellen about this and Ellen advised me to try out some makeup brands for sensitive skin.  I never got around to doing a trial run for my mom but nonetheless Ellen was able to do my mom's makeup with nary a complaint from my mom.  She was beaming the entire day and looks so beautiful in her pics.  My aunt told me that she has never seen my mom happier.  Of course she was happy to see her baby daughter get married but I know some of her happiness was because she knew she was gorgeous. As an added bonus Ellen introduced me to the fabulous Diana who did my hair as well as some of the members in my bridal party.  Read less
