Working with Miriam was such a pleasure over the years. I truly miss her sweet, kind, positive personality. Her talents shine through her beautiful artistry work. She has a special way of making women look and feel beautiful. A very rare talent to get both a friend and an artist while getting your makeup done.Jul 30, 2014
Miriam is a very down to earth, loving, and caring person. I was greatly impressed by the passion and professionalism she brings to her craft. She did my makeup in a timely and beautiful manner. Miriam has done my makeup for 3 events (engagement pictures, a formal event, & my wedding). Each time she took into account what I was wearing, the lighting of the event, and the mood to convey. Also, thanks to her awesome skincare cleansing tips and I went from having pimples all my life to being glowing clean skin! Each time I had my makeup done, many people commented on how awesome my skin & makeup was....and its thankfully all because of her! I highly recommend Miriam if your looking for a great makeup artist.Aug 31, 2014
Miriam Dondrae did my make-up as part of a Bare Minerals event. She did a full look on me and my niece. We wanted different looks because of our age difference. My niece was looking for a smoky eye look and I wanted an everyday look incorporating a color in my collection that I found hard to wear. I loved the time she took to ask about our desired outcomes. We were each given a face chart so we could duplicate the look. I was impressed at the amount of tips Miriam gave during the application. The appointment was supposed to be for 30 minutes but she spent extra time because we were the last clients of the day. Both looks were beautiful and exactly what we wanted. I can not think of anything that would have made the experience better. I have photos of the event/looks but I can't figure out how to upload them.Jul 30, 2014
