Made up by Elle is a makeup service company whose story began in 2006. Back then Founder, Elvire Emanuelle, had recently completed several fashion shows while studying Fashion Merchandising at Virginia Commonwealth University, which was just ranked the #1 School of Arts by US News. It was actually her sister, and bride-to-be who admired her style of simple distinction, and requested for her bridal party to be made up the same way. "You can do makeup as a profession, you know. You're really good."

...and so the romance began.

Years later and after working as both a Certified Makeup Artist for MAC and Manager and Artist for Dior Cosmetics, it turns out her sister was right. Elvire utilized her background in fashion, and experience in beauty to launch Made up by Elle, a company that would exemplify purposeful beauty and fashion. While it began as wedding glamor, it has bloomed into an established makeover service, providing on-site professional makeup applications, hair styling and wardrobe styling.

Today Elle works on commercials sets for brands such as ADT, on SAG feature films, behind the scenes at New York's Fashion week, for print advertisements and retail catalogs, for bridal studios and for countless other clients. She is known especially for her ability to seamlessly transfer into different genres of makeup styles with equal skill and to create looks that fits each individual perfectly.
