Wedding and Event Makeup
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!!

Wedding and Event Makeup
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!

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 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.
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.
My experience with Ms M.D.A.
She is one of the most Honest, True to her Word, Talented Beauty Artist. When you're her Client, she looks into your eyes, your the only thing on her mind. She smiles & explains your High Points, what to Play-Up. Eyes, Lips, Brows, with Tips just for you, as you're her Canvas, & she's your Artist, only you...
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!
Dondrae worked as a National Makep Artist under
my supervision while working at Bare Escentuals.
She traveled along with a team of artists throughout
the US serving customers in the retail cosmeticindustry. Her
responsibilities also included high profile Makep for
marketing and PR.
Dondrae is also highly trained in mineral Makep application
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.
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.
