owner, makeup artist
Jana is a bright, bubbly highly energetic Australian, whose love and passion of the makeup industry is the reason that she opened Elijana Cosmetics in Athens, GA. In Australia she worked for one of Australia’s top Makeup Artists Melissa Dempster. Over the course of visiting her family here, Jana noticed a need for a Makeup store that offered a variety of services and products. The most important product that she wanted to offer was a custom designed foundation, so that women wouldn’t have to settle for a color not quite right. Then to have a beautiful studio that allows Brides in particular to feel special on a day full of stress. Her dream is for Elijana Cosmetics to become a destination in Athens, that is known all through out GA as the place to go for your UGA wedding day makeup.
Helen is an esthetician, eyelash extension artist, and manicurist with over 16 years experience. She graduated with a master of cosmetology degree from Athens Technical College in 1999, and has had extensive post graduate skincare education at The International Dermal Institute and Institut DerMed. She was trained on Minky's and Novalash eyelash extensions and has over 10 years lashing experience. She also provides CND Shellac lacquer manicures and natural nail manicure/pedicure services.
