From Hair, To Makeup, To Feeling The Way You Always Hoped You Would On Your Wedding Day, Victoria Elizabeth Official Has What It Takes.
It is where brides go to feel the most beautiful they ever have. Victoria Elizabeth Official is an award-winning, luxury bridal beauty company that specializes in mastering the art of bridal glam. I had the chance to chat with Victoria Elizabeth Caroleo herself, the owner and CEO of Victoria Elizabeth Official, to discuss why so many brides can’t wait to get glammed by Long Island’s most prestigious beauty team!
When did Victoria Elizabeth Official open for business?
Victoria: Victoria Elizabeth Official opened for business in 2011.
Since 2011, many Brides of Long Island have experienced the true luxury that comes with being a Victoria Elizabeth bride.
“Victoria Elizabeth was my absolute FAVORITE vendor. Not only was my makeup flawless, I genuinely loved using her and her team. They are personable, listen to the client and are true professionals. She truly made me feel like a model. I also hired her for touch up service- which in my opinion is a must. My makeup looked fresh all day! She took the time and attention to detail that any bride would want on her special day!” – Real BOLI, Amanda Lai
You’re a BOLI favorite! What do you think separates you from the pack?
Victoria: We get this question a lot and if I really think about it; it’s not just the exceptional services and customer service we provide but it’s the inner knowing that our company has a specific purpose in the world today. Our purpose is not just to make people look beautiful but it is to imprint a lasting feeling of knowing who they are. Beauty does not define who you are but who you are determines your beauty. “
While they were doing my hair and makeup they wouldn’t let me look in the mirror. I was so nervous because I had rosacea and vitiligo and my hair wasn’t super long so I didn’t know what to expect. I chose the airbrush makeup. They kept the conversation the whole time and they were so nice. I was nervous, trying something new and meeting new people. Victoria & Liz made the whole experience wonderful. When they turned my chair around, I was blown away by how awesome I looked! I felt great and confident that I looked beautiful for my engagement photos! A week after my engagement photos, I got a few teasers from my photographer and they were stunning. I called VEO and booked them for my wedding day.” -Real BOLI, Nicole Randazzo
Where can potential brides view your portfolio of work?
Victoria: We take pride in our newly updated website and our Instagram is a live feed of our day to day transformations from our entire staff.
We highly recommend checking out the beautiful website, and especially their carefully curated Instagram which boosts stunning photos of real brides for all the inspiration you need! Don’t forget to check out their many highlights as well which offer tips, behind the scenes photos, and before and after shots!
Do brides need to travel to you or do you work on-site?
Victoria: In 2020 we have opened a luxury bridal event space, where brides can take advantage of our Champagne bar, Luxury lounge, Old Hollywood Glam Room, Malibu martini bar room and last but not least our Royal Dressing Room. If a bride does’t want to get ready in our luxury event space, we do provide services on location as well. We are excited for 2021 because we are also booking destination weddings frequently. So to simplify our answer, Victoria Elizabeth Official can accommodate a bridal party anywhere with no limitations!
With the option to choose between a luxury bridal event space, the comfort of your own home or the convenience of your venue, and even destination locations, how could you go wrong?
In your opinion, what is the most important quality a bride should look for in a hair/makeup artist?
Victoria: We are sure that customer service should be the number one factor taken into consideration by a bride when booking a hair and makeup company. This past year especially I believe consumers have realized how important customer service can be when booking a company. Brides need to be booked with someone where there is not an ounce of doubt and they know that they will be taken care of.
“I booked them for touch up services and it was the best decision I made. My wedding day was SO hot and they made sure I looked perfect. They followed me to pictures where they even helped to position me and calm me down when I was feeling overwhelmed. I ended up booking them for hair and makeup for another wedding I was in and I booked their boudoir shoot package as an anniversary gift to my husband. I LOVE them!!” – Real BOLI, Tina Alviano
Our very own BOLI founder Heather Cunningham can’t stop raving about Victoria Elizabeth Official, “I booked Victoria Elizabeth for hair and makeup for the Brides of Long Island Summer Soiree photoshoot. To say I felt like Beyoncé when I left would be an understatement. She truly is a master at her craft and highly recommend her for all brides to be!”
