My name is Elena Malevanaya and it is a pleasure to meet you and introduce myself. Makeover Galore has always been a dream of mine and now that it’s here, I’m very excited that you’ve chosen my team to be a part of your special day or event. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity!
A little about me… I began my career as a professional make-up artist and premiere hair stylist in 2008. I received my education in Cosmetology at San Mateo Community College and through my years of experience and education, discovered I wanted to specialize in bridal styling. I found it very enjoyable meeting the brides and working with them to create a look that would complete their special day.
Wanting to stay current with the latest techniques and tools, I’ve continued my education by attending schools for make-up and hair in Europe and in the U.S. I’ve become certified in make-up by KRYOLAN Professional Make-Up (https://us.kryolan.com/), one of the world’s first professional make-up brands that has been around for over 70 years. And I’m also certified in airbrushing by TEMPTU PRO (https://temptu.com/pro/), which is one of the leaders in airbrush makeup tools.
I continue to enhance my skill set whenever I can and have done several editorial and commercial photo shoots, as well as, make-up and hair for head shots for several of my clients. I’m always on the look out for ways in which I can bring both the latest looks and styles to my clients, because when they’re happy, I’m happy.
I look forward to working with you!
