“Working with Liz from 217 Beauty was an experience that every bride should have.  Liz’s makeup work is amazing. I felt like a queen on my wedding day. I did a makeup trial a few weeks before my wedding and Liz nailed my vision on the first try. On my wedding day, I did a makeup change in between the ceremony and reception to complement my dresses. I did not have to change one thing for either makeup session. Liz made me look like perfection!  Liz’s greatest asset are the 3 P’s: professional, punctual, and patient. She made me feel extremely comfortable and calm on the morning of my wedding, which is how every bride should feel. Gillian, the hair stylist, was also outstanding. Gillian is an amazing, talented artist. My hair looked exactly how I wanted it to. Again, I changed my hair styles in between the wedding and reception and Gillian worked her magic and had my hair done perfectly within a short time frame. I would recommend 217 Beauty to all brides who want to have a pleasant, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for their wedding. And I will definitely use 217 Beauty in the future.”

“Liz from 217 Beauty did my makeup for my wedding, as well as my mom’s and the girls in my bridal party. Her work was amazing and she made us all feel and look so beautiful.

Lisa

“Liz was flexible and able to meet my scheduling needs for both my engagement shoot and wedding. She listened to the look I described and was able to recreate it flawlessly.  On my wedding day, I cut my finger while slicing bagels for my wedding party (don’t ask). She was even prepared with bandaids! She stayed later to make sure I was comfortable on my day through all of the madness. I could not have had a better person. Since the wedding, I have used her on another occasion for a friend’s farewell dinner. Again, my makeup was amazing and I would not hesitate to use her again.”

“Liz is great to work with, she comes in ready to work with a smile on her face (even when it’s 4 am like she did for my wedding). She definitely is a great person to work with and would use her in the future for any events, as well as recommend her to all my friends. Couldn’t have asked for anyone better to glam me up for my day!!!! Thanks Liz!!”

Jigna

“Liz did an amazing job for my wedding! I had many requests which she fulfilled without a problem. Guests were asking all night who did my make up as they wanted to use her services in the future. Would definitely recommend Liz if you are looking for a make up artist. I can’t wait to book another event with her =).”

Oleysa

“Liz was absolutely amazing. I am so picky with what type of makeup I want and Liz delivered all the way. She went above and beyond what any makeup artist has ever done for me, I am so happy I chose her to do my bridal makeup. As the bride I was so thrilled, and I felt like a princess being pampered. My bridesmaids were all so happy with the results as well! I can not say one negative thing about Liz, or her professionalism. Her quality of service is far beyond 100%! If anyone in the try state area is looking for a reliable, sweet, and exceptionally talented makeup artist, Liz is your girl!”

Jessica

“Liz was the make-up artist for my sisters wedding last summer and I loved what she did with my make up so much that I booked her for my wedding immediately. She is great at what she does and very personable. I gave her pictures of what I wanted and she definitely used the pictures and listened to what I liked. She responds quickly to emails and calls and makes you at ease during trial, planning process, and day of. All of my bridesmaids loved their results and really liked Liz. My make up stayed on the whole night on a hot, humid and rainy day. I received so many compliments on my make up at my wedding and my pictures look great. I would completely, without hesitation book her for your wedding or event; she’s amazing.”

Heather

Thank you so much Liz!  It was a pleasure to have Liz do my makeup on my wedding day. She is so sweet and attentive; it was fun and relaxing to be in her hands. She made me, my mom, sister and aunt all look beautiful! My mom and I had done a trail with her and she duplicated the exact look we had decided on. My sister and aunt had not done a trial, but Liz was nevertheless able to give them exactly what they wanted. I had an early evening wedding in NYC and she was able to strike a perfect balance of day-into-night makeup (she recommended a darker shade for my lips for the reception) and a very natural look with just a bit of modern edge for my eyes. My eyes popped like they have never before, in every single picture (professional or on my friends’ cameras). She is super professional, punctual, and flexible (she was able to fit in my aunt at the last minute).  I highly recommend Liz!”

Elena

“My wedding make up could not have been any more beautiful or stress-free! Liz did an amazing job on not only me but on everyone else who got their make up done! She was very knowledgeable and full of suggestions and listened to the requests of those who she was applying make up to! I could not have imagined a better out come for my beauty services on the day of my wedding! Everyone loved her and one of my bridesmaids is even using her for her wedding in June because she did such an amazing job!! THANK YOU SO MUCH LIZ!”

Sarah DiPaolo

“Liz did my make-up on my wedding day, as well as my mother’s make-up, and the bridesmaids’ make up. She was absolutely fantastic!  The day of the wedding she came on time (4am!) and was amazing. She knew how important time was on your wedding day. She was so quick with everything. She did not give me a reason to stress.  She responded to all my emails regarding the ideas and pictures I had in mind. She is professional but friendly at the same time. She was so welcoming to any ideas or suggestions I had. Liz made me feel completely comfortable and listened to all of my concerns.  The end result was exactly the look I was going for and I could not have been happier!  I would whole-heartily recommend her to anyone!”

“I would recommend 217 Beauty to not just my friends but everyone looking for great quality of service with their beauty needs. I first used 217 Beauty’s services for my wedding and had such a great experience I now continue to use them for all my special events. Quality of Service/Value: Liz did such an amazing job with my make-up during my wedding, which was a long day because I had 2 church ceremonies (Catholic & Orthodox) , bridal party pictures, plus the reception afterwards. And after all that and partying for hours, my make-up still lasted all day and at the same time felt natural. Professionalism: I would rate 217 Beauty’s professionalism with the highest rating, very friendly, personable and knew exactly the kind of look I wanted to capture for my special day. She also gives great suggestions if you prefer different types of looks, natural,smokey etc..which we experimented with during my trial. Liz made me and my bridal party look so amazing, my wedding pictures ended up on a number of bridal magazines and also in wedding photography books!!! Responsive/ Flexibily: Very responsive and flexible with customers. Assures you are comfortable and satisfied at the same time!! 5 stars all the way!!! “

Gilda

“Liz did an amazing job with make up at my twin sister’s wedding, that there was no one else I would have wanted to work with at my own wedding. She is very professional and really understood the type of look I was going for. My skin was glowing and she made me look flawless. My eyelashes and the blend of colors she chose to use on my eyes were just right. Liz also did the make up for my bridal party, mom and mother-in-law, and the colors she used matched each of the girls’ complections perfectly! Everyone looked fantastic and felt beautiful thanks to Liz. We had a beach wedding in the Caribbean and our reception was outside on the beach (Yes, she even traveled to the Caribbean!). During the reception it rained for about 10 minutes, and surpisingly our make up lasted through the rain and all throughout the night. Liz was there for any necessary touch ups, but I hardly needed it. I have received so many compliments on the make up for my wedding, and I will definitely recommend Liz any time I have a chance. She is so nice and fun to work with. I could not be happier with my experience and loved having her be a part of my big day!”

Esther

“Had my wedding on Sunday (4.22.12) and I HAVE to say, it would NOT have been the same without 217 Beauty!!! They made me feel and look like a princess!!! Their level of experience and expertise in making decisions for makeup and hair is TOP NOTCH! Especially considering that I am not one to wear makeup and do my hair on a daily basis. I was comfortable every step of the way, and always had my questions answered in record time (even if I sent an email in the middle of the night). I had my makeup trial done on the day of my bridal shower, and everyone loved it!!! In fact, my bridesmaids loved it so much that they wanted Liz to do their makeup as well as soon as they saw the work she did. We even made some changes for the day of, like adding in another bridesmaid at the last minute and Liz was MORE than accommodating to it. She did such an OUTSTANDING job that when we did the first look photos with my fiance, he cried! That says a lot!!! Daleesa was fabulous when it came to hair, working at RECORD speed – one bride, 3 bridesmaids AND My mom in only 4 hours!!! And not a single hair fell out of place during the heavy rainstorm that we had that day either! From traditional (trial) to airbrush (wedding day) You simply can not go wrong with 217 Beauty – Liz and her team are PHENOMENAL! If you want easy-going, friendly, professional service, this is DEFINITELY the girl you want to go!!! THANK YOU LIZ AND DALESSA, 217 BEAUTY – YOU DESERVE 10 STARS IN MY BOOK!!!”

“I was looking for a makeup artist for my wedding and was referred to Liz Gizelle from my colleague and friend. Her services and professionalism far exceeded my expectations. She was flexible with scheduling my trial and I was able to wait until I got out of work. Her studio where I had my makeup trial was very clean and organized. She was open to my ideas of what I wanted to have, and was able to do different looks that evening. I booked her makeup services for myself, bridal party and my mother. Her and her partner were on time in meeting us at the salon for makeup (at the crack of dawn) and did such a fabulous job! They are so friendly and down to earth, it was like a girls fun day out at the salon. That definitely put the bridal party at ease! My bridal party and I were so happy with the way our makeup turned out and we all agreed that it didn’t feel like it was too much or too heavy. For my bridal party, they choose colors and shades to compliment everyone’s skin tone and features (we are a mix of nationalities\backgrounds) – and they made their inner beauty shine for sure. Liz also drove down to the venue and stayed with me and my bridal party up until the ceremony. She was right there by my side the entire time and was so helpful and professional to me and my friends. She was there to fix my makeup when I saw my husband (we saw each other before the ceremony) and I really don’t know what I would have done without her there. She really made the entire day so much easier for all of us! I have recommended her to my friends and would love to use her services in the future. If you are looking to have a stress free event, with professional services and a gorgeous look — Liz Gizelle is the way to go.”

“Working with Liz Gizelle Rodriguez and Team 217 Beauty was BEYOND the most AMAZING decision for my wedding. I had the pleasure of having her do my trial makeup for my bridal shower and it came out incredible. Most of all, what I loved, loved, loved was how comfortable, nice, fun, and special Liz made me feel during my trial and especially during my wedding. Whenever I needed to ask her a question, she aways responded right away and with a positive attitude. The day of the wedding, Liz arrived right on time with a smile on her face ready to work. All of my girls, and especially my mother loved the way their makeup looked. When it came down to me, words in this review could not do justice to the spectacular job she did on the most important day of my life. Liz took her time and made sure I looked awesome at my wedding. My makeup stayed on throughout the day (mind you it was on a hot August day) felt flawless, natural, and well basically I looked and felt like a movie star. Liz, THANK YOU SO MUCH for making me look so AMAZING on the day of my wedding. I highly recommend Liz to any brides out there because she truly is an artist when it comes to makeup and seriously just look at her previous work and it speaks for itself. Liz, you are a FANTASTIC makeup artist!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!”
