How do I even begin to describe my experience with Miriam? EXCELLENT! From the moment I opened my door limping due to a foot cramp (I'm pregnant), Miriam was amazing. She sat down and proceeded to rub the cramp out of my foot as we started to chat! Unbelievable, and incredibly sweet. As a woman of color, it's very hard to find a make-up artist that knows our skin...well Miriam knows our skin! Miriam is a fantastic make-up artist, and I felt 100% beautiful during my maternity shoot. She is personable, funny, down to earth and makes you feel as if you've known her for years. I will definitely use her for anything and everything I can from this point forward. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!Sep 29, 2015VerifiedMiriam A.'s reply
I had so much fun with you yesterday! Can't wait to see your beautiful photos!
Miriam is professional and personable. We loved having her on set. She made everyone feel comfortable and look beautiful.we had several different characters. She was able to match the makeup to match the personality of the character. I highly recommend her. She will definitely be our first call for future productions. Thank you Miriam!Aug 2, 2015VerifiedMiriam A.'s reply
This was such a fun project to work on! Check out our 48 Hour Film entry in the media above entitled Speed Dating Steve by Table Mountain Productions! Bravo!
Miriam was truly incredible and a pleasure to work with. Her makeup artistry was key to the success of my music video "Mind Games." Miriam came with her game face on and put 150% into the job. She worked extremely well under pressure and most importantly worked well with both the cast and crew. If your looking for that special person to make your project a success, I couldn't recommend anyone better than Miriam.Aug 6, 2014

Excellence is the best way to describe the performance of Miriam Dondrea Andolini. As a Make-Up Artist, she accepts challenges with enthusiasm & handles all opportunities that are given to her. She is well versed in all aspects of make-up artistry, skin care & knowledge of current beauty & fashion trends. During the time that I've known Dondrea, she has proven herself as an outstanding Make-Up Artist and individual, whose abilities I can recommend without reservation. I Love this Lady!Jul 31, 2014
