Hi, I'm Dana

I established Dana Michele Makeup to create a feeling of beauty and empowerment.  I am a nerd, I find the science of skin and makeup just as fascinating as the art of applying it. It’s important for me to educate my clients about makeup and introduce simple techniques that can be used everyday.

 I love to travel and explore new places, try new restaurants and coffee shops, and go on outdoor adventures. On most days you can find me with my two crazy kitties Boots and Nash and enjoying life with my husband Mike.
