“To be honest, recommending’ Elisa isn’t strong enough a word – I feel extremely sorry for every Bride in Britain who DOESN’T have her as a make-up artist!
Elisa immediately understood the concept & vision of exactly what I wanted my wedding make-up to be; it is the one day of your life, where your face will be at its most photographed; you don’t want to mess about.
As soon as I met Elisa, I felt completely at ease with her total & utter professionalism AND her friendliness & warmth. More importantly, I was astounded with the results of my make-up trial, completely blown away. Elisa’s skill with her art is second-to-none; she is absolutely at the top of her game.
On the day of our wedding, Elisa made my bridesmaids look utterly stunning, with no initial trial or meeting, Elisa had no idea of their appearance, skin, or even attitude to make-up (which varied from fussy to non-existent!) yet all my bridesmaids looked & felt fabulous – and it REALLY shows in the photographs.
As for me, my wedding make-up was the only thing I had complete confidence in on the day – I knew there would be no stress, nothing would go wrong – and more importantly, I would look how I had always envisioned looking on my wedding day – like my hero Bridget Bardot! But in the end, my new husband summed it up nicely; he said I simply looked ‘Mesmerising’.
Thank you Elisa – and I’ll be booking a MAC Masterclass as soon as the honeymoon is over, in the hope of re-creating how beautiful I looked and felt on the most special day of my existence :-)”

“Elisa did my make-up and my 3 bridesmaids on my wedding day. She was amazing and did a fantastic job. All my bridesmaids have very different tastes when it comes to make-up but Elisa managed to please them all and they all looked beautiful. Elisa did a great job with my make-up too, I hadn’t slept most the night and was unfortunately ill on my wedding day, but you would not have guessed after she worked her magic on me! Not only was she professionally great but also a lovely, warm person to have with you on your special day.”

“After bonding over a mutual love of Mac products, I couldn’t wait to book Elisa to do my wedding make-up. She was really approachable and very willing to listen and help narrow down all of my ideas. My trial was great too. I was totally confident in her abilities and delighted with my look-another big tick off the list! On the day she made me feel completely relaxed. When I finally looked in the mirror I still felt like ‘me’ but a much more glamorous version! I had many “film star” compliments about my make-up and it lasted the whole day. I was also given a my lipstick free for touch ups after the meal. Do not hesitate to book Elisa for any special occasion, she and her work are amazing!”

“I got married on the 3rd August 2013 and had planned to do my own makeup thinking it would be less hassle by not having additional people around.  I could not have been more wrong.  I visited Elisa a few weeks before for a trail run and on the day she came to the hotel.  My makeup was light, natural and flawless and best of all it lasted the whole day.  Elisa was a delight to have around on my special day and did a wonderful job at keeping us all calm.  She even did some finishing touches to my daughters makeup and when the time came to get me into my beautiful wedding dress she was happy to help.  She is very professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her for any special occasion.  Thank you so much Elisa for being part of my day and helping to make it so special.”

“Being a typical Virgo I have to admit I am a rather annoying perfectionist, this annoying trait was amplified when the words ‘wedding’ came into the equation. I tried and tested many make up artists, from well known make up counters, recommendations and surfing the internet, with disappointment and panic before thankfully coming across ‘Elisa’. Now luckily I have done the research for you. Without hesitation I would highly recommend Elisa, she importantly listens to what look you want to accomplish, has great advice, an amazing make up range and created wonders on myself, my three bridesmaids and my mother, all whom have very different skin and hair colorings, with a professional relaxed manner which made me feel very calm and confident on the day.”

“Mum and I had our make up done by Elisa Drummond. My mum was worried about having too much makeup on and not looking natural. Being 65, she thought no one could make her look and feel wonderful ….then Elisa did a trial and made her look 10 years younger !!
My makeup was very classic and understated yet I felt a million dollars ! Elisa knew exactly what to do with my skin type and tone and really advised me on how to get the best from my features. I still use the tips that she gave me and will always be grateful to have shared the morning of my wedding with such a talented and lovely young lady. Elisa made such a big impact by doing such beautiful makeup yet you hardly knew she was there…that’s a professional for you!
All the bridesmaids were pestering Elisa for tips and help with their final touch ups and Elisa never once appeared to be bothered or lack enthusiasm to help and share her knowledge. Not only is Elisa a great makeup artist she genuinely knows her stuff and I will continue to rave about the service she offers to anyone that will listen!!
Although I certainly don’t plan to get married again, I will definitely use Elisa for my next big event!”

“Elisa was recommended by a friend and from the moment I met her she put me at ease and made the whole experience special. We discussed colour choices and recommended shades that would suit my skin tone. On the day of the wedding she kept me calm when the nerves kicked in and ensured everything was prefect. Myself and my four Bridesmaids received so many compliments on the day and I was so impressed that my make-up looked perfect all”

"Elisa single-handedly did the make-up for me, my three bridesmaids, three close friends, Mother, and my Aunt on the day of my wedding, and we were all absolutely thrilled with what she did. We felt amazing! Not only was Elisa incredibly skilled in make-up application, but she was wonderful to have with us on the day. Incredibly friendly, putting everyone at ease, and ensuring we had the best morning possible. 

I couldn’t recommend Elisa highly, or thank her, enough!"

Annalise Macarty

"I booked Elisa to do the make-up for my wedding and she was absolutely wonderful! From the moment I first spoke to her on the phone her bubbly personality came across along with her professionalism and I instantly decided to book. At the trial Elisa listened to what I wanted - a fairly natural look with bright pink lips - and set to work. She created a more polished version of me, that still looked like me. And then she recreated the same on my wedding day- it was perfect! My bridesmaids and my mum were also very happy with their make-up. She is truly a genius with make-up :) If you are looking for a friendly, professional make-up artist who will enhance your natural beauty, look no further! Book Elisa today!"

Katie Hannington

"Elisa is so fantastic at what she does, from arranging everything on email and by phone, to the make-up for my trial and the day itself, Elisa was so friendly, professional and understanding. Elisa's goal is always to ensure you're totally happy with everything and worked with me to achieve the exact look I was after, even though I couldn't articulate it very well myself and changed my mind a few times!

Having Elisa there on the morning of my wedding just felt like having another friend there and she was a really calming and lovely presence on what is naturally quite a busy and emotional time.

Elisa also arranged everything with the hairdresser and together managed to do hair and make-up on me, my four bridesmaids and my Mum with plenty of time to spare! Everyone looked so beautiful and the perfect blend of natural but stunning and long-lasting (I didn't need to touch it all day), which is surely the holy grail of bridal make-up. 

I would (and indeed have) recommend Elisa to anyone looking for the perfect make-up for any special occasion."

Charlotte Ludgate

Elisa is a truly talented and skilled makeup artist and from the moment we first spoke to the moment I left my parents house to get married, she was a pleasure to work with.
She listened to my thoughts and helped my mum find her perfect "look" during our trials.
On the actual day of our wedding, Elisa was a calming influence amongst the chaos and it felt more like a friend was doing my makeup than someone I'd only met a few months before! All 5 of us who had our makeup done were thrilled with the results and I'm still thinking of excuses of other events that I may need my makeup done for so I can work with Elisa again.
I really would recommend Elisa to anyone and everyone.
