From the moment that I met her in her studio, to the day of the wedding, Elizabeth put me at ease. She is unbelievably talented and also has this wonderful, earthy personality that made her a delight to work with. Elizabeth's rates were very reasonable and she put so much time and thought into making me and my bridesmaids absolutely beautiful and natural on the wedding day.  You will not go wrong in choosing her - she works with you to get the look that you want!

I loved working with Elizabeth for my September wedding. I was planning everything from out of the country, so finding vendors I trusted was so important. Elizabeth was communicative and helpful throughout the process. I was drawn to her portfolio because of her specialty in natural looking makeup. I wanted to be more glamorous than usual, but still look like myself. She got what I was going for right away and I had a great trial experience in her cute studio with water views. She is very easygoing and puts you at ease -- perfect for when it gets hectic in the bridal suite on your wedding day! All the ladies who got their makeup done for the wedding looked beautiful, and everyone felt like they got what they wanted. It's not easy to please that many women! My makeup lasted ALL DAY AND NIGHT on an unusually hot San Diego day during an entirely outdoor wedding. Even when I said I felt sweaty or shiny, people told me my makeup still looked flawless. What more could you ask for??

Elizabeth Root was amazing! She is so talented and professional! She helped make it easy for the day of by giving me a template of a schedule for all 9 of the girls getting their makeup done and she stuck to it. Each of my bridesmaids were extremely happy with the way their makeup looked and Elizabeth did it exactly how they wanted it. As the bride, I didn't know exactly what I wanted. I showed Elizabeth a few pictures and just emphasized on wanting it natural because I normally don't wear a lot of makeup. She was so helpful and kind leading up to the wedding and I put my trust in her and WOW the makeup was beautiful. Besides being an amazing makeup artist, she is down to earth and I was super comfortable having her there while we were getting ready for the special day. I recommend Elizabeth for any event you have! She is fantastic!

Choosing LIz to do my makeup for my wedding day was one of the best decisions I could have made. Not only is she a rockstar at what she does... But she is a sweet and calming breath of fresh air (which is exactly what every bride needs on their wedding day).

After I scheduled a trial with her, I knew it was game over. I have never felt SO pretty, but the best part was that I still felt like me. I'm not used to wearing much make-up so I was worried I would feel like a drag queen lol. But that was not the case... Liz asked how I usually did my makeup and went from there so that I still looked like myself by the time she was done. Just a more beautiful, flawless, vibrant version of myself haha. What more could a bride ask for?! She also did my mom's makeup on the day of the wedding and she LOVED it. All the pictures turned out amazing and our makeup lasted the whole day (dance party included).
My best advice for brides? Choose Liz. You will not be disappointed.

Elizabeth did a fantastic job on my make up for my engagement shoot. I didn't go with a defined idea of what I wanted, and left it to her expertise to make me look my best. She asked questions throughout the process to make sure I was comfortable with her approach. I was thrilled with the result and didn't want to take it off at the end of the day! Unfortunately she has another booking on my wedding day, but I highly recommend her for her professionalism, skills and warm personality.

Elizabeth did my trial and then my makeup for my wedding in July! She is amazing! I loved every detail of my makeup and she knew exactly the look I was going for! She also is very calm and not frazzled at all which makes getting your makeup done a nice and pleasant time! She was super sweet and she made me look beautiful for the best day of my life!!! I highly recommend Elizabeth for makeup! She is an artist!!:)

-Stephanie P.

Elizabeth is so amazing! I am so glad that I found her, thanks to her amazing Yelp reviews. For my wedding last month she did my makeup, as well as the makeup for my sister and my mom. Elizabeth is extremely talented and creative - not to mention sweet and down to earth. Our makeup looked gorgeous! She was able to listen to the direction that I had in mind and then use her creative vision to turn my vague statements into an amazing look for me on my wedding day. On top of all that, she was so professional. She showed up on time, was quick to answer my emails and questions and was very understanding and flexible when I had to reschedule my trial makeup run a few times. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist - I definitely plan on calling her again for any special occasion where I need to look and feel extra beautiful! Thanks again Elizabeth :)

Elizabeth did an awesome job.  I loved my bridal makeup and my girls looked wonderful as well.  Wanted a more enhanced natural look and it came out great.  I also sweated and danced all night and the makeup stayed put!

-Martha F.

Elizabeth was my amazing wedding makeup artist a few weeks ago! She is so sweet and has a calming spirit! The combination of a mimosa and Elizabeth is exactly what I needed to reduce my anxiety and allow me to enjoy my big day! She also did a great job with my mother-in-law and my mother. My mom never has her make-up done and was nervous, but Elizabeth did a great job! My mom looked 10 yrs younger! Elizabeth was very flexible, reasonably priced and came to my house for the wedding trial. I felt beautiful all night! Thanks Elizabeth!

-Katie M.

Elizabeth is amazing! She did my wedding make-up along with a handful of my bridesmaids and my mom and everyone loved how it turned out! She did a trial for both my mom and I at two separate times in two separate locations and after the trials were completed she was very responsive to requests for changes for the day-of make-up. She was always prompt and had no problem travelling to wherever we needed her to be (my trial in Hillcrest, my mom's trial in Carlsbad, and Wedding day in Rancho Bernardo). On top of being amazing at what she does, she is super sweet and great to have around when everyone was getting ready. I would recommend Elizabeth 10 times over to anyone looking for someone to do their wedding make-up!

Elizabeth is AMAZING! She did my make-up for my wedding and my mom's. She worked with me to make my make-up nature; similar to what I wear everyday, but with a tad bit of a spice with a flawless finish that I did not need to touch up all evening long.  She was on time and accommodating for both my trial and the day of and her loving personality made it even more of a joy to work with her. I found her simply on the internet since I was new to the area and could not have been any happier. The highest of recommendations!

-Jill O.

Elizabeth is seriously amazing.  I still feel incredibly lucky to have had her as my makeup artist for my wedding.  As someone who is fairly makeup-phobic, Elizabeth was an absolute godsend.  She listened and absolutely nailed the look I was going for.  I also have to say that Elizabeth is one of the most calming people I've ever met and created a quiet space to do makeup that I swear brought my stress levels down two notches on the Big Day :)

-Shannon L.

I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth on a recent shoot that I photographed and I couldn't sing higher praises.  We were in a crunch for time as we were shooting outdoors, so she gladly and effortlessly did a majority of the clients makeup in the car on the way to the location.  Her work is absolutely stunning and flawless. Not to mention, she can range from highly dramatic to the most natural and soft look.  She is a highly talented artist and kind soul.  I really look forward to working with her again in the future. 

-Katherine Griffin

She is amazing.  She made me feel like a princess, she's so nice and really fun to hang out with.  I loved the products she used and her vision was exactly what I was looking for, and her input was super helpful.  She even comes to your house and is super flexible with her schedule.  I loved working with her and will use her again for all my events in the future.  Thank you Thank you!!

Liz was a makeup artist at one of my modeling shoots! I don't have the best skin in the world and she made me look like a porcelain doll! One of the best makeup artists I've ever had the pleasure of working with! Not to mention she is one of the sweetest and most down to earth people. I'd recommend her to anyone! :)

-Madison Jones

Elizabeth is GREAT! She is a wildly talented makeup artist, and the nicest, sweetest person! She did my makeup for my wedding, as well as my mom & mother in law. She was perfectly punctual, had a calming presence. She made us all look absolutely beautiful, and yet natural and simple. She's easy to work with, has great ideas and DOES A GREAT JOB!!! Thanks Elizabeth

-Kate K

Liz was recommended to me by one of my brides maids for my wedding day makeup and out of all the things in my wedding makeup was very important. Liz was very professional, on time, prepared with tons of make up for the day of. I felt at ease knowing Liz would do a great job! Liz did an amazing job! I looked and felt beautiful! I didn't have to recheck my makeup at all it stated on perfectly late into the night. I am excited to see all the pictures come in. I would highly recommend Liz to any bride, or any woman for any of her makeup needs.

- Christina Trego

Liz was amazing when she did my makeup for my wedding and I loved her so much that she did my makeup for a wedding that I was a bridesmaid in. I would highly recommend her for any event."

-Britney Busch

Elizabeth is a wonderful make up artist! She came to the hotel and did the makeup for my wedding for myself, my bridesmaids, and my mom! Everyone loved the way our make up turned out! As someone who doesn't wear a lot of make up I couldn't have been happier with the natural look that Elizabeth created. It stayed perfect throughout the entire wedding and reception. Not only is Elizabeth a complete expert and professional, but she has the most calming presence which I feel is so important for a bride on their big day! I would (and do) recommend Elizabeth to anyone I know that is looking for a make up artist.

-Kelly Warren

I recently had Elizabeth Root as my bridal makeup artist for my wedding day.  I had contacted several girls and got many price quotes, as I was on a budget and most my bridemaids were too.  I was so happy to have come across Elizabeth from Mac.  She was willing to travel to North County for our onsite wedding and her prices were affordable.  Since I was totally last minute on hiring her, I didnt get a chance to do a pretrial.  When she arrived (very punctual by the way), I gave her a few pictures of what I wanted and she was able to get my vision and match my exact wants.  I like more of the natural look and she didn't try to over do my makeup like most makeup artists.  She made me feel absolutely gorgeous and I was so happy with the final outcome.  It was a pleasure working with her and she is a true expert at what she does. I would recommend her to anyone looking to feel beautiful for their wedding day or any other special occassion.

-Melissa Doman

Elizabeth is a fantastic makeup artist and really listens to what you want. She did makeup for my wedding and I love how all my bridesmaids turned out. She also did makeup for me for other events and I will continue to use her everytime I have an important event or photoshoot with my family. I recommend her to all my friends!

-Katelyn Santos

Elizabeth is a great makeup artist. She is very professional, and pleasant to work with. We hired her for our Seea Spring 2013 Video lookbook and she did an amazing job.  We will definitely love to work with her again

-Amanda Chinchelli

I have had my makeup done by Elizabeth a few times and absolutely loved it. Her knowlege of make up is outstanding and her creative touch makes for a beautifly done piece of work. The first time I had her do my make up was for my art show and loved the colors she used on me. I was eger to have her do my makeup again, this time for halloween. I told her I wanted a dia de los muertos face, but didn't give her any specific guidlines and left the rest up to her. What she came up with was amazing! I can't say enough good things about Elizabeth.

-Mele Saili

I Met Elizabeth Root at Mac in San Diego.  I was very pleased with her makeup job and since hired her several times to do my make up for different types of Photoshoot, from fitness to maturity shoots. Elizabeth has always done such an amazing job and  created just the look I was going for! I am not a fan of a ton of make-up and have always had a hard time finding someone who can capture the look I have wanted! Elizabeth has always been able to capture the look I have wanted! It is refreshing to know that when I need my make up done, no matter what the occasion, I have someone I can depend on!! Elizabeth also gets 5 stars for her great personality and professionalism. She has always showed up on time, is so fun to work with. I highly recommend her!! Thank you Elizabeth!!
