Wedding and Event Makeup

Dee was very professional and easy to work with. She made me feel very comfortable and made applying my makeup a team effort. My makeup was on point and I loved it... I hated that I had to remove that work of art at the end of the day....😊

D was wonderful. She is a true artist. She even came to our hotel the night before my daughter's wedding to let the girls choose their colors. Her energy is amazing. I would definitely recommend her services.

Dee was amazing! She is personable and an all around awesome person, both to work with & in life. I’m a photographer & hired Dee to do make up for my client for a graduation photo shoot. My client rarely wears make up, and Dee accounted for that by doing a soft glam and making sure my client still looked like herself. Dee went above & beyond for us & I would definitely book her again.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I’ve been a makeup artist since 1993 and have experience with many different types of makeup and people. I work hard to please each client as I know that they expect the best from me. I am reasonable and enjoy what I do. I give discounts as the number of people increase.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I go through a consultation in advance of what is needed for the event. I like clarity of what is expected of me and my services. I will attempt a trial of colors and foundations so no mistakes are made on the special day of the event

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a bachelors degree in art. Therefore I see faces as a canvas. I went to Arizona and got certified in makeup artistry and began working with a photographer, doing makeup on his clients, once a month. I worked between home and Arizona for a year before settling here doing special events, birthdays, weddings etc.
