"I had my hair and makeup done by Elena at Makeover Galore. She's amazing and super nice! I was thrilled with the outcome and got many compliments from even strangers when I was out and doing my photoshoot. I'm happy that I booked with her and she gave me exactly the look I was going for! I highly recommend her services!!!"

"Elena was lovely to work with and did a fantastic job on my wedding-day makeup. I was referred to Elena at the very last minute, as my original makeup artist fell through just days before the wedding. She quickly arranged a trial for me (the day before the wedding!!!) and was very friendly and pleasant. She arrived early for our day-of appointment to set up, and my makeup looked flawless all day. I couldn't be happier with her work!"

"Elena did my hair and makeup for my professional headshot. She did a spectacular job. It looked very natural, yet improved my look. I liked it so much, when I was planning a video I had her again do my hair and makeup. She is so talented and friendly. It was a pleasure doing business with her."
