Name: Elissa Gia - DIRECTOR
Makeup Inspiration: Too many to name, but Troy Jensen and Mario Dedivanovic are my ultimate favourites. Also the celebrity makeup style of Beyonce, Gaga, JLO.
Favourite Makeup Look: At the moment it is the Mod Cat Eye.
Lips or Eyes?: This is a tricky one. For a full look, intense and dramatic I can’t go past the sexy bronzed and gold smoky eye. For a quick and simple yet effective look, I love a simple, clean eye and a slap of Giddy Luxe Lisse Creme on the lips - orange - perfect for blondes!
Biggest makeup blunder on myself growing up: Almost everyone does the blue eyeshadow, including myself - mine went all the way up to my unplucked brow!
My Role with éllie Makeup: Owner, Founder & Director
Favourite éllie Makeup Product/s and why; How do you use it? My all time fave - Luxe Lumiere - intense luxurious skin, golden immaculate glow, tricks the eye to believe your skin is absolutely hydrated and flawless even when it is not. Can be worn on its own or mixed into foundation. It is heavy duty glam!
What would you describe as your makeup style?: Peachy, dewy and all about luminous skin. If that is perfect then everything else falls into place on the face.
How does having your makeup done make you feel? It is rare to actually have my face done, but when I am done up I feel my inner confidence expand and extra sexy too. Natural can be beautiful too.
In your opinion, what’s the biggest makeup faux pas? Dry, flaky and cakey skin and unblended eye shadow!
