Dawn Nicole Faces of Beauty
My birthday was this past week and I wanted to celebrate in a different way by getting made up! So I came onto Thumbtack to find a MUA and I found DawnNICOLE! AMazing experience and I was very pleased. I have included some details about my experience below: 1. Throughness, Punctuality & Responsiveness - from the moment I received the quote from Dawn she was thorough and detailed in answering my questions. We communicated via the thumbtack app and text. Additionally, she was up front about her experience, her credentials and her best practices (e.g. Cleanliness standards, willingness to travel). That transparency made me comfortable enough to book her services. 2. Professionalism- upon arrival to my home, Dawn immediately set to work. she was very industrious setting up her equipment. I had a timeline to keep yet she still maintained her standards and not cutting corners with my makeup but finishing on time. We had a consultation before the first and she asked first what I wanted my look to be and then added her professional opinion to a proposed look. What I appreciated was that she is not a "yes" MUA - meaning she puts your request on your face arbitrarily without giving thought on how it will mesh with your features. She was great in helping me craft a look that I was comfortable with and that's what's was most important. 3. Finished look- my biggest concern was coming out of this MUA experience looking like a clown lol. Full disclosure, I hardly wear a lot of makeup and I was nervous about the FULL GLAM look I decided to go for. Well, suffice it to say when I say myself in the mirror I was SHOCKED!!!. A good shocked though lol. Everyone loved the look. So...Would I hire or recommend Dawn? A resounding YES! You will not be disappointed, I wasn't.Dec 11, 2017Verified
Dawn was one of the best choices I made on my wedding day! She is so fun to be around, all the girls loves having her vivacious personality there to lighten up the day. She did her best to keep it a stress free environment too. Her artistic talent is amazing. She matched my color prefect and highlight and contour ON POINT! we decided to go with something different than my trial but it turned out amazing! My groom and I were both so happy we chose Dawn on my wedding day! This lady knows what she's doing!Nov 11, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It depends on the event. My standard rate is $75 to $85 & goes up from there based on the needs of the client & the ocassion. 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.
- 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 seminars with some of the leading industry MUA’s. I also attended Cosmetology school, however as times change so does makeup techniques, so for the most part I am self taught. I've read every beauty book written by IMAN, Bobbi Brown, Sam Fine, AJ Crimson, Kevin Acquion just to name a few.
