Wedding Makeup

I couldn’t have chosen a better make-up artist for me, my mom, and my bridesmaids on my wedding day! Denise’s style was exactly what I wanted. During my consultation we chatted about the look of the wedding, my make-up style, and any preferences I had – with all this information Denise was able to do my make-up exactly as I wanted and I barely even felt as though I was wearing any make-up. The products she used were light yet they lasted all day without any touch-ups needed. Our photos turned out beautifully and we had endless compliments on our make-up all thanks to Denise’s ability to make us all look so great! I was also lucky enough to be a bridesmaid in another wedding where Denise was doing the make-up…I’m not going to lie I started getting used to looking so good and wouldn’t complain if she came to my house to do my make-up every morning :)

It is my delight to write this letter recommending the exceptional services of Make Up Artist Denise Elliott. Denise made me look and feel beautiful on a very special day in my life…my wedding. She is very skilled and passionate about her work, and approaches each appointment with expertise, confidence, patience, and a commitment to doing the best job possible to ensure her clients leave her chair feeling fabulous about themselves. I cannot recommend Denise highly enough and will be sure to use her services again in future.



I had the pleasure of having Denise do my make up for the launch of our radio station 100.5 The PEAK in November. It was a huge event for me, and Denise did a beautiful job of my make-up. She also did fabulous make-up for my co-worker Tamsin Carling. Both Tamsin and I will definitely be using Denise for our make-up needs in the future.

Denise, I just wanted to let you know there’s no one in the world I would rather have to do my makeup on my wedding day! You did such an amazing job. I don’t think I’ve ever seen us all looking so great!

Makeup Lessons

When my daughter turned thirteen, she was FINALLY allowed to wear makeup. I had been putting the makeup thing off as I had seen too many young girls with too much make up on. I decided to take an educated approach and had Denise Elliot come over to and teach my daughter and her friends how to apply makeup the RIGHT way. It was fantastic! Denise spent time with each girl individually to show them the best way to enhance their own natural beauty, the proper techniques and quality products. She took the time to answer questions and make everyone feel gorgeous! She even gave each girl some samples of products to try at home. It was a huge success! I can’t tell you how happy I am that Denise is the one who taught my daughter how to use makeup properly. My daughter is still having lots of fun with makeup, but she is keeping it natural and not overdone. She gets compliments all the time! I would highly recommend Denise Elliott. She did a great job!


Wedding Makeup

Denise is the "BEST" make up artist I have ever worked with!
I have had her do my make up for various events over the past few years and she has always done an amazing job at making me look and feel so beautiful!
On my wedding day and during the months leading up to the day, she consistently demonstrated kindness, great professionalism, organization, and genuine care to details with the make up for my bridesmaids as well as making me look and feel like a naturally beautiful bride.
Denise has a very special talent as she knows exactly how to bring out your best features, and strengthen your facial weaknesses without making it look like you are wearing too much makeup. She knows exactly how to make you feel naturally beautiful. She is so great to work with and I can't wait till she does my makeup again:) I have and will continue to recommend Denise and her team to anyone as she is a guarantee "Natural Beauty Maker"


Wedding Makeup

Denise was fantastic! Her makeup selection was perfect, using quality products that made my face flawless. Even through all the wedding stress and tears, my makeup didn't smudge one bit! I also appreciated how accommodating she was for my trial day, as well as how prompt and professional she was on the wedding day. The last thing you want is a makeup artist who shows up late! I would absolutely recommend her for anyone's event. Best in Vancouver, in my opinion!


Wedding Makeup

Denise was an absolute pleasure to work with, she was very professional and did a beautiful job. She really brings out your natural beauty instead of making you look fake. She also used this amazing spray on top of my makeup that prevented any of the makeup from coming off throughout the whole day - even though at times I was sweating profusely on my face - the makeup held up!


Wedding Makeup

Denise was amazing to work in every aspect. She is professional yet friendly with a calming energy, she's punctual, a perfectionist, and most importantly, did an amazing job on my mom, bridesmaids, and of course, me! She also scheduled to do my consultation for my engagement photos which was fantastic - not only did I look 100 x better in my photos but I also had the opportunity to connect with Denise before the big day and discuss the "look" we were going for. I would recommend Denise for any style of photoshoot, as she is extremely flexible and creative! The best!

Denise was WONDERFUL!!! She did all of my bridesmaids, my Mom, and me (the bride) and I was SO SO happy with all the makeup. I husband said that I still looked liked me which was important to him. I will be using Denise again and again!!

Denise was fantastic! I loved my makeup on my wedding day, my face was flawless and she enhanced my best features. My bridal party all looked beautiful as well. I would recommend Denise to anyone!!



Denise has a knack for applying the most beautiful make up in the most natural way. She is not only incredibly talented but also a pleasure to deal with as she is both warm/friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. If only I could afford to have her apply my make up every day!

Denise did an amazing job our make-up for my wedding day. She did me, my bridesmaids, my mother-in-law, and my grandmother and everyone looked their absolute best. She is an amazing talent at what she does! I felt wonderful all day because of my beautiful, natural make-up.
