About the Owner, Elina Mille
Elina Mille moved to Charleston in 2008 from Russia where she worked as a professional makeup artist at high-end boutiques in Moscow. Since then she has obtained her license as an aesthetician in the state of South Carolina. She has worked as a makeup artist for Charleston Fashion Week and on fashion spreads for Charleston Style & Design Magazine and Grand Strand Magazine. Elina has also been a freelance makeup artist for Chanel. Living in Charleston, one of the nation's top wedding destinations, has also provided her opportunities to work with countless beautiful brides and bridal parties as well.
While earning a university degree in Moscow in journalism and advertising, Elina already had a particular attraction to aesthetics and art. She explains, "Even before moving to Charleston, I had always pictured myself opening a high-end spa/makeup and skincare studio, with a European flavor, that featured one-on- one interaction between me and my clients." The dream finally came true as Elina and her husband Andrew opened the doors to the Bellelina Makeup and Skincare Studio in downtown Charleston, SC in February of 2012.
