About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am extremely personable. I listen to what the client wants & cater to their needs. I provide my expertise so that we can come to a look that the client is happy with. I don't believe in pushin MY ideas on what their makeup should look like. My job is to listen, & give them EXACTLY what they want.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Making people happy and seeing the expression on their face when the job is complete. I live for that moment when my client looks in the mirror and sees the finished results. THATS why I do this, THATS why I LOVE my job!!

    Dawn is an amazing make-up artist and professional! She was on time - prepared with an arsenal of quality supplies and personalized my experience to fit my needs. In a day of modern technology she made it a point to cut off her cell phone. She transformed my face. Personal friends who've known me for more than 25 years did not recognize me at an event. Thank you Dawn - of course people were asking for her info and I was prepared with her cards in hand.

    There is a reason she is #1.
    It is easy to see why Dawn is rated #1 on Thumbtack. From initial communication to completion of makeup application I knew that I was in great hands. This was my first time getting my makeup professionally applied. She came prepared with her gear, corrected my eyebrows to my liking(they were too perfect for me, I have been growing mine for 3 years and refuse to shape them..lol), and even was able to help me with a wardrobe fiasco last minute. Professional, skilled, and talented. I regret I forgot to take photos but all NYE night women kept commenting on my makeup and using terms I didn't know... I kept hearing how my "strobing?" was amazing. lol . Just select Dawn.. no question.
    Dawn N. Jan 11, 2017

    Thank you sssooo much Natalie!! You made my job easy. U are such a naturally beautiful woman with an AMAZING spirit and great energy. I enjoyed doing your makeup and I am so happy that u were pleased with the results. The term "strobing" is just the highlight I put on ur cheek bones. Makes ur cheek bones pop and glow!! I'm so happy to hear u received many compliments!! I hope to work with u again in the future. Thank u for such an amazing review 😘😘

    Excellent bridal session!
    Dawn provided wedding makeup for me and my sister on November 4, 2016. She is amazing! This was our 1st time getting professional makeup, so Dawn explained the process thoroughly. She was prompt, organized, & clean. Most of all, she was friendly, personable, & she helped calm my nerves for my big day. We received countless compliments! I highly recommend Dawn for anyone needing makeup services.

    I booked Dawn for my wedding last minute because my original hair and make up artist canceled the week of the wedding. She was so nice and just amazing! She took care of everything so I had no worries. When the day came she was there early and went to work right away. She did an amazing job on my three bridesmaids from make up to hair they all turned out so beautiful. They were all finished on time so we were able to do all of our photos before hand. Thank you so much Dawn for being so amazing!!

    Best MUA ever!
    This was my first time using Thumbtack. I will use it again as well as Dawn. She immediately answered all my questions. I wanted to make sure I set the expectations of my hair, makeup, time, and location. Before I clicked hire I wanted to know every detail and she explained it. She also gave advice regarding what I should look for that I hadn't covered in my original questions since she noticed I was concerned as an amateur with this service. She was honest about her updos hair skills. We shared photos to be clear she could achieve my desired look. She did a great job. She was amazing at my make up. I always get my make up done for special events and Dawn did better then anyone has ever done at the best rate! I wanted a little more glam and drama and I think she achieved that perfectly.
    Dawn N. Sep 30, 2016

    Marialma. I don't even know where to begin!! You are EXTREMELY nice and pleasant even before we met. When we met u were even nicer in person. U are a natural beauty so u made my job easy!! U understood that (at that time) my updo skills were not intricate yet you still hired me & I so appreciate that. I really enjoyed doing your hair and makeup and also enjoyed our conversation with both u and ur husband. Thank you for being so kind to me during ur makeover. I've NEVER had a client feed me while I was getting them glammed!! THANK YOU!! U & r husband are truly a match made in heaven. Thank you so much for hiring DNFOB for your event. I pray we have an opportunity to work together again!!

    I absolutely loved Dawn! You must hire her! I was actually pretty particular about my makeup and concerned that I could end up with someone who would do something too overdone or not my style. I also, though, wanted makeup that would pop and have that major wow factor. Dawn did that for me and more! I hired her for two wedding events and I can't decide which day's makeup I prefer but I definitely know that I looked absolutely flawless! I'm serious. No joke. I think I looked the most beautiful than I have in my life and I heard that from everyone I spoke with regarding my wedding. Dawn also did makeup for 3 bridesmaids and they were all in awe as well! We all would book her for any function where you want your face to be "beat for the cheap seats," as Dawn Nicole would say! - (and that's a good thing by the way! Lol) She was absolutely amazing and so happy I found the perfect makeup artist for my big day! THANKS, DAWN!!!

    Very happy with the way my makeup turned out for my wedding. Felt a little rushed at the end and wasn't able to take as many pictures before the wedding as I had originally planned.

She is Is super professional and personable--it's like I'd known her for years. She showed up early to set up. As she was doing my makeup. she would explain what she was doing as she went along so it was a little tutorial as well. The end result was FAB, you hear me?? The look was so clean and it didn't even feel like I had makeup on! All night I was getting compliments on how great my makeup looked. She helped make my birthday unforgettable and I would hire her again in a millisecond!

    I had an incredible makeover experience. Dawn communicated well, ensured that I was comfortable and educated me throughout the process which took about 2 hours. I wanted an especially glamorous look for a very elegant evening event and she truly delivered beyond my expectations. Her service was prompt, she used quality products and was completely attentive to my needs. I received countless compliments. I truly look forward to my next makeover with Dawn and experimenting with softer looks.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Ask tons of questions!! After being hired I always ask the client to send me a recent picture of themselves. This gives me an idea of their facial features, bone structure, shape, etc. I also make sure to have a phone conversation to answer any questions they may have and explain the products I use and why I use those products. Even if it's just a date night makeup client I am in constant communication with them up until the day before!!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I take classes with some of the industries top MUA's as well as TV MUA's such as Love & Hip Hop NYC. I did attend Cosmetology school, but as times change so does makeup techniques, so for the most part I am self taught. I've read every beauty book written by Bobbi Brown, Sam Fine, AJ Crimson, Kevin Acquon, etc
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
It depends on the event. My standard price is $65/$75 & goes up from there based on the needs of the client. Weddings are much more involved. Especially if there are bridesmaids involved, therefore the pricing is a bit higher. Occasionally Brides have to be educated on the work that goes into bridal makeup (that explains my pricing). Special makeup MUST be used for several reasons. 1. It MUST last all day. 2. The picture must be flawless. 3. It must feel weightless on the face. High definition makeup must be used for brides which is why the pricing can be a little higher than a normal "makeover". Also bridal makeup is extremely detailed. Foundation, highlight/contour eyeshadow blush cheek highlight lips liner cheekbone highlight bronzer etc. a lot of products are used which takes time.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started as a teen model. Back then, we didn't have MUA's on site so we had to do the makeup ourselves. Being so young I had to watch the older models to see what they were doing. I love makeup. And I decided that I wanted to share my passion and love for makeup with other women who want to look & feel beautiful. Makeup can make or break your day. But if it's done right, it really makes you feel glam & put a pep in your step!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I run the scale from basic everyday to dramatic full face highlight & contour for a more dramatic look. I do proms, weddings, date night, photo shoots. Etc..
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently had a client, Kimberly who was attending a themed business party/dinner. The theme was the Great Gatsby. She had a pair of shoes that she wanted to match. The shoes were blue & purple. I was especially happy with that job because not only was I able to deliver EXACTLY what she wanted but she was blown away by the finished product. So much so, she asked me if I would travel to Dallas if/when she needed her makeup done. That told me.. I did an AMAZING job!!! Thank you Kimberly!!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't always go with the cheapest price. Cheaper doesn't always mean better. Go with the MUA that is truly interested in you & your occasion. Ask questions. As many as u can. This is the MUA that is going to be doing ur makeup for ur special event so it's very important u develop open communication with them before ur scheduled appointment. If the MUA u hired isn't responsive and/or does not or can not answer ur questions, that's prob not the MUA u want to hire. Again, cheaper doesn't always mean better. Customers have to understand that the price quoted includes several factors I.e., time, travel, replenishment of makeup etc. So try to keep in mind that when a MUA quotes you a price, they aren't bring greedy, we have to factor in several things.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Their exact specific needs. That's very important for the MUA to know. Also think about timing. What time does your event start? That gives the MUA an idea as a time to suggest to start your makeup. Also think about having your hair done before having your makeup done. Ask ur MUA, how long will it take, what products do you use. If you have an idea as to a specific look, inform ur MUA of that look. Also ask your MUA to break down his/her charges so you know what you're paying for.
