Elyse was born and raised in upstate N.Y. She has always had a passion for art and fashion. During High School you could always catch her drawing and doodling in class; while keeping up with the latest trends. Although art was at the center of her heart, she went on to pursue an Environmental Health degree from Stony Brook University. For the last few years she has been creating a brand for herself (Beauty by Elyse) by doing free lance make-up. Her canvas has become the faces of many women along the way. She is dedicated and determined to ensure each one of her client’s has a positive and pleasant experience. She lives by the mantra, “there is beauty in everything, you just have to look”.
