Makeup Artistry

Client Satisfaction

Dana’s background as a senior public relations executive has afforded her the opportunity to work on both national and international accounts, traveling the world with only one goal in mind—managing, pleasing and serving her clients. An earlier career in corporate branding and marketing taught Dana how creating a strong image can help to take a product or service to the next level. An expert in personal image consulting, skincare, bridal styling and all things beauty, Dana has mastered the art of transformation and brings this talent to every one of her “beautiful brides.”
