Elle Leary has been a professional makeup artist for the last decade primarily working with celebrity clients and high-end beauty brands. She has worked for publications such as Teen Vogue, InStyle, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire and Chloe, for brands such as Benefit Cosmetics, CoverGirl, Revlon, Merle Norman and Colorescience to name a few, and with celebrities including Holland Roden, Debby Ryan, Vince Vaughn, Cher Lloyd and Emily Mortimer. For the last several years for the Grammy's, Elle has enjoyed creating content and offering her commentary about fashion and beauty for the Grammy Glam Squad.
Elle is driven by those unguarded moments before the cameras flash. Once she is satisfied wit her work and confidently places a mirror in the palms of her clients' hands, there is silence and a speechless appreciation for her ability to bring forth what is already there – a woman's true beauty. These backstage moments are why Elle loves her job so fully and continues to be at the top of her game. It is also why she has been able to build long lasting relationships with beauty brands. Truly, she channels her warmth into her professional work so that her brushes and products don't hide flaws, but reveal the beauty that is in each of us.
