Elena Giannini - Make up Artist



Since the 90’s, Elena Giannini has worked with a variety of actors, musicians and models including Natalie Portman, Ben Affleck, The Black Crowes, Grammy Award winning jazz pianist Marian McPartland, Caroline Kennedy, Martina Navratilova, Andrew Shue and the Chordettes. Elena is one of those rare talents who excels equally in both make up and hair, which is why she has worked for some of the most acclaimed headshot and portrait photographers, music and educational videos, television and film. She also enjoys the excitement of preparing a bride for her wedding and has worked on many private bridal events.

Elena majored in art at the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music and Art in N.Y.C. and went on to win a scholarship to Wilfred Beauty Academy where she earned her cosmetology license. Currently, she is a member of The Art Students League in N.Y.C. where she won the 2006 Hyman Stenzel Merit Scholarship and in 2007 was awarded a two month scholarship in their Vytlacil Residency Program to continue her study of drawing, painting and sculpture. With several of her paintings being exhibited in New York, Elena’s experience in fine art stretches and complements her passion for make-up and hair.
