"What I loved about Yelena, was that she adapted her style to make each person in the wedding party look her best, bring out their natural beauty and make everyone look great together. Her skill was so obvious she convinced a very skeptical bridesmaid to get her make up done - and she was so pleased with the result. If you have demanding perfectionistas or no-fuss gals - Yelena will find the perfect make up for each of them making everyone beautiful and happy on your wedding day. You did a fabulous job for me - thank you!"

"I just wanted to take a few moments to thank my makeup artist Yelena. She did an amazing job on my makeup, but what counted the most on my wedding day was her way of making me feel comfortable and her flexibility. My ceremony took place at the same venue as my reception, and my biggest fear was that I would have mascara running down my face because I am usually very emotional. Whether or not my ceremony and reception could take place in the same day really depended on the flexibility of my makeup artist, and her willingness to return in the evening to touch me up. Just knowing that she was willing to be "on call" for me was a huge relief and really counted for a lot! She was a pleasure to work with in the morning as well, as nerves can run pretty high on the morning of your wedding day - Yelena with her calm personality made me feel at ease. I just wanted to thank you for being a part of my special day! .... All the best, and I'm sure that whenever I am up for looking fabulous - I will surely be giving you a ring!"

"As a bride, you want to achieve that "perfect natural look" for your wedding day and really just look like the best version of yourself. Yelena was able to perfectly capture that look. She is truly a very talented makeup artist, and a pleasure to work with. My girlfriends and I had a blast with her, and I am so happy to have had her be a part of the most important day of my life."

"Based on great hearsay from others I hired Yelena to do my makeup on my engagement day and I was so pleased with her work. Shes artistic and patient and met every expectation. She had done five of us and everyone had looked beyond words beautiful. She is creative and patient and worked with me in what I wanted. She is fantastic and I will definitely hire her again for future events!"

"Dear Yelena, It was just beautiful working with you! My family and I all loved your work ...beyond that, you really played such a great role to ground me in the midst of chaos!!! I also appreciated the patience you exhibited as much intensity was rolling around you. Lots of people have already messaged me to find out who the makeup artist was for their upcoming events/weddings!"

"Yelena did my sister's, sister in law's and my make up on the day of my wedding party. She was fast and did an amazing job. I was so happy with the way my make up looked and the way it showed up in photos. Thanks Yelena!! The photos turned out great!!!!!"

"Like a pandora box .. Your talents at every makeup session .. You've done an amazing job at all my events throughout the year - engagement, bridal shower and wedding day. Always showing my good side :) So easy to work with and ever so gifted. Luv ya"

"I hired Yelena as my make-up artist for my wedding, and I would highly recommend her to any bride. A lot of her work that I saw on her website was very dramatic and exciting stuff, but she assured me that she could put together a more natural look for me for my wedding day, and she definitely did - I am so happy with how I looked and she really worked with my suggestions. I looked like myself, but more radiant - I felt totally gorgeous :) We had a really tight schedule and she still managed to do beautiful make-up for myself, my mom, and my 5 bridesmaids, in our busy hotel room with children running all over the place! She was prompt and professional, and also really easy-going and nice. It was super fun to have her as part of my big day. My girls and I got tons of compliments, and our make-up lasted all night (I still look great in my 2 am reception pics!). She was also really accommodating in terms of scheduling my make-up trial to go along with my engagement photos. I am very happy with my decision to hire her."

"Yelena is absolutely amazing at her art. In the fashion/bridal world, she was Ottawa's hidden gem...a true master makeup artist! I have worked with Yelena for about 3 years before she moved to BC and have never been disappointed. She can turn any face into a masterpiece. She is able to take an idea that a model, photographer, or bride has in their mind and make it into reality, exceeding everyone's expectations with her finished product. I recommended her to do my sister's makeup at her wedding...if that isn't a good indication of how good she is, then I don't know what is! Not only is Yelena a great makeup artist, but her prices are very reasonable and to top it all off, she is very sweet and easy to work with. A true professional!"

"Yelena is a very talented makeup artist! I was very impressed with her work. She was very meticulous, and even did prep work before meeting me at my makeup trial by asking me to send her pictures of different makeup styles so she could get inspired. She responded to my emails promptly and was flexible at being available at any time to start the makeup the day of the wedding. The bridesmaids loved her and she did a fantastic job on all of us! My makeup lasted the whole day, and I felt beautiful and glamorous. She emphasised all of my features in the right way and made sure I was picture perfect! I would recommend Yelena to all my friends, and hope that I am able use her talents once again in the future!"

"Yelena played such an important role in what may have been the most important event of my life. She was reliable, sweet, comfortable to work with and most importantly she is great at what she does. My wedding was a traditional two-day event. On both days Yelena understood and nailed the traditional bridal look that I was hoping to attain, and I was so pleased with how everything turned out and stayed intact throughout the night. I thank you for your hard work, creative abilities, charming nature and I would not hesitate for a second before recommending your work to others. I would love to work with you again in the future and I wish you all the best."

"Having Yelena as my makeup artist was one of the best decisions I made when it came to my wedding this past June. Right from the first time I contacted her, she was completely enthusiastic, professional, and I felt very safe leaving my makeup in her hands. Doing all of my wedding planning while living in another city was challenging, and it really helped that she was prompt with responding to emails, and so flexible with meeting for makeup trials when I was in town. In fact, she did not one but two fabulous makeup trials on me, as I was a very picky bride and she wanted to make sure I was 100% happy with my look for the wedding day. Yelena - I will forever be grateful to you for helping make my wedding a dream come true - the makeup looked amazing all night, and it was exactly the look I wanted. I love you for helping me achieve my dream wedding look - thank you again SO much!"
