A Passion For Cosmetics
Elise Bigley is a freelance makeup artist based in Sonoma County & Greater Bay Area.
She has been in the cosmetic industry for 20 years, and has her work featured in film, television and print.
She began her makeup career at the age of 6, when she would gather loose change around the house to purchase local drugstore makeup and apply it to all the children in her neighborhood. It is her art, her passion, and the core of who she is.
Elise loves connecting with people and creating art with makeup. Be it simple everyday looks, or theatrical special effects creations, each client becomes her passion, and she is overwhelmed with gratitude to be included in their vision.
From gathering ideas to implementing a look with the latest techniques and application styles, she will assess and provide professional, high quality results for your event, photoshoot, or class.
People can be intimidated with the sheer amount of information/videos/application and product available to them, and she's here to navigate a path that best suits YOUR needs.
Specializing in photoshoot makeup, Elise can quickly and accurately decide which products or techniques will give the maximum benefit to you.
Elise loves connecting with people and establishing relationships with her clients. As personality goes, she's very easy going and considers herself one of the least intimidating makeup artists out there.
She loves being light hearted, playful, sometimes (appropriately) sarcastic, but at the core, professional and highly experienced.
When she's not doing her glam work, Elise enjoys spending time with her two children (ages 6 and 3) and watching the world unfold through their eyes. She enjoys hiking and exploring trails in the Bay Area, and trying new recipes and wine pairings (calorie wise, she likes to think they cancel each other out).
Feel free to contact her with any questions or ideas you may have, so she can create memories that will last you a lifetime.
